The National Indian Gaming Association (NIGA) each year holds their famous Tradeshow and Convention in San Diego. As the leading organization in the Indian Gaming, the Convention is the place where companies from all over the world come to celebrate the success and showcase their new products.

This April, Merkur Gaming was one of the participants. The famous developer presented several new innovations, among which the new bonus feature Rapid Thunder proudly stands out.

The Thunder of Features

The Rapid Thunder feature is presented as All-Prizes-Pay feature which is incorporated in several Merkur’s titles. Immortal Emperor, Taco Tuesday, Land of Charms, Immortal Princess, Baozang, and Amulet of the Pharaoh are just some of the progressive titles which are released with this extra feature.

As an inbuilt high prize jackpot feature, players who explore Rapid Thunder titles will have a chance to win several different versions of jackpots.

To trigger Rapid Thunder, at least three different Scatter symbols will need to appear on the reels simultaneously. There are four different jackpot versions: Mini, Minor, Major, and Grand.

Each version is unlocked in a different way. For example, to activate and win the Mini Jackpot, players will need to collect two Rapid Thunder Blocks which are formed when one whole vertical column is covered with Rapid Thunder symbols. Three blocks trigger the Minor Jackpot, and so on.

If the player plays with the maximum bet, he can win the Max Grand Jackpot and take home €10,000 in cash. The maximum number of Free Spins a player can get is 35, and if the free spins are re-triggered, each spin comes with a certain multiplier.

However, the best thing about this feature is that the jackpots are accumulative, meaning that if the player wins the Grand Jackpot, he’ll get all other jackpots’ prizes with that as well. This gives the players a chance to win really substantial amounts of prizes.

Along with Rapid Thunder, Merkur also presented updated versions of Big Deal Wheel and Striking Fortunes games.
