Who doesn’t love the movies where an underworld dimension seeps into a small unsuspecting town? That idea is still inspiring TV shows, book and films today – take the recently released ‘Stranger Things’.
Are you ready to enter a sleepy town and help them figure out the mystery of the newly found portal to the underworld? Ever since some genius thought it would be a clever idea to draw a pentagram on the side of a building, some weird and wonderful stuff has been going on here – and they need someone with a bit of a dark side to come and figure it out.

About the Game
The Rift has five reels and 17 paylines, it’s set on the dark and eerie street of the small town, in front of the pentagon, with creepy music playing in the background. The game itself is very well designed, with the symbols looking very artistic – a stopwatch, burning book, octopus, potion and coins. The aim of the game is to stop the rift from feeding on all the artefacts, by collecting them. The highest value symbol is the burning book, which awards you with 30x your stake if you land 5 of them.
The Wild Symbol – this pink pentagon symbol can substitute itself for any other normal symbol to form a winning payline. These can also become sticky wilds at various points in the game.
The Scatter Symbol – the scatter is the rift symbol, and if you get two of these you trigger a rift spin, giving you a respin and between 1 and 3 sticky wilds on any of the reels. Landing three of these scatters in one play will get you to the bonus round.
The Bonus round – triggered if you get 3 or more scatter symbols in one spin, this activates the rift seal. Depending on how many scatters you collected, you’ll move 1 step forward, and you’ll keep going until the seal has filled up. For every 3 steps you move forward, you’ll get a sticky wild and 2 free spins.
A slot game that’s great to look at, The Rift combines horror fantasy with casino fun, and it works! There’s enough going on to keep it interesting – the bonus round is innovative, and the story behind the game makes it unique.
