Developed by Microgaming, Thunderstruck II slot still feels like a blast from the past. After the first game was released back in 2004, the series it is still attracting players to this day and remains one of the most popular slots out there. Based around Thor, this slot revolves around the Norse god’s powers of thunder and lightning and other iconic Viking symbols. Thunderstruck II is certainly an upgrade on its predecessor, as it not only builds upon its tried and true gameplay, but it also features new graphics and symbols, as well as more paylines a bunch of new bonuses too.
Whilst the first game in the series was fairly stripped back in terms of its bonus features, the graphics aren’t the only thing that’s got an upgrade this time round. In Thunderstruck II you can enjoy a total of six different bonuses – yes, you heard me right! They all cover various different kinds of bonuses you’d find in the world of online slots, but rarely do you find this many in the same place. Here’s how they work:
Thunderstruck II’s first bonus is the randomly triggered Wildstorm feature. Once begun, Thor will crash onto the screen and use lightning bolts to transform between up to five full reels. If you are lucky to enough fill the entire board, you will win a whopping 8,100x your total stake.
The Great Hall of Spins is where the selection of bonuses really opens up. Triggered by landing three or more of Thor’s hammer scatters. Not only do these combinations pay anywhere between one and 200x times your stake, but they open up a multi-level free spins feature too. Choose between four of the great Norse gods to explore the fun and fantasy of their very own free spins, each with a unique twist.
This first option is based around the iconic female Norse goddess of the same name. Available from the first trigger, this round will award you with 10 free spins and a 5x multiplier. It can also be retriggered again to give you 20 free spins in total, with the max win per free spin being a staggering 1,383 x your stake.
Available from the fifth trigger, Loki free spins last for 15 turns and includes the Wild Magic feature. Look out for these wilds on the third reel as if it appears, it can substitute other lesser symbols for more wild. You can also win up to four further free spins by landing more scatter symbols more free spins and the max win per spin is 8,100x your stake.
The ultimate Norse god and father of Thor and Loki, Odin’s free spins are available from the 10th trigger and reward you with 20 free spins. This round also includes the Wild Raven feature: according to mythology, Odin used ravens as his spies, but here they simply either double or triple your payout. Land both and you can even receive a 6x multiplier! The max win for this one is 3,320x stake.
Last of all is Thor himself. Still the main character of the series, his free spins are is available after you trigger the Great of Hall of Spins feature 15 times. Here you’ll get 25 free spins and have access to the Rolling Reels feature. This means that each time you land a winning combination, you will increase your multiplier; this maxes out at 5x your total bet but the best possible win in this round is also a fantastic 1,383x your stake – rounding off this wonderful, multi-level bonus feature.
In terms of graphics, Thunderstruck II does improve upon the original’s dated appearance. Not only are there more impressive animations and at a better resolution, but there is a whole new addition of symbols added this time round.
Beyond just focusing on Thor, like in the previous game, this slot brings in various Nordic gods, including Loki, Valkyrie and Odin. The aforementioned Thor and his mighty hammer, Mjolnir, remain as the scatter symbol – so to do the standard card values and the game logo as the wild – but there even more interesting symbols that add to the mythology. Two of our favourites are the Viking-like ship and Thor’s home-world of Asgard, complete with its wonderful rainbow road.
