When a developer creates a slot title that becomes a hit in the online gaming arena, the clever move is to create a follow-on title and this is what Microgaming did, and well. In 2003, this developer released a cult game titled Thunderstruck to thrilled slot fans and in 2010, it followed up with its Thunderstruck II slot game. Since 2010, the follow-up game has become a firm favourite and there are many reasons why.
Main Features of this Online Slot
Like the first Thunderstruck slot game, this slot game comes with all the bells and whistles of its predecessor, featuring great graphics and sound effects, seamless gameplay and high rewards. The pulse of this slot game lies in its 243 paylines which guarantee winning combinations and great pay-outs. This slot is suitable for penny-wise players or high rollers as it offers a wide spectrum of betting options.
Microgaming has embedded a new paytable achievement feature that allows all players to unlock certain reel symbols if they are able to complete all the different payments for the reel symbols. Thunderstruck II has taken the theme for the original slot game and turned it up a notch. The theme is more detailed and the graphics are far more striking with a plethora of Nordic Gods and legends making their debut once again on the reels. Players get the honourable opportunity of meeting Loki, Valkyrie, Thor and Odin and on the reels, with other legendary symbols appearing like Thor’s hammer, a Nordic ship, among others.
Thor’s hammer is the bonus symbol in the game, while the Thunderstruck II logo symbol is the wild in the game. The wild replaces all other symbols on the reels, except for the bonus scatter symbols, to reveal winning combinations and also doubles players’ wins when used in a substitution.
Unlock Free Spins
At the heart of this epic cult game lies four different, but equally fun, free spin features which players must do their best to unlock. This feature is called the Great Hall of Spins. With these features, players have the chance to win up to an amazing 2.4 million coins. When a player lands three, four or five bonus scatters across the reels on Thunderstruck II, then this feature is triggered. What is great about this feature is that it can be re-entered into over and over again, with each time rewarding higher pays.
The Valkyrie Bonus rewards players with a total of 10 free spins, together with a multiplier of five which means your bets are multiplied by five. During this bonus round, players can activate many more free spins. The Loki Bonus Round rewards players with 15 free spins together with a wild magic symbol, which creates additional wilds for more rewards. During this round, more re-spins can be fortunately retriggered. A total of 20 free spins are awarded during the Odin Bonus on Thunderstruck II, as well as 2x, 3x and 6x multipliers. A total of 25 free spins are activated in the Thor’s Bonus round and a 5x multiplier.
