Thunderstruck II gameplay
The good news is that this slot continues Microgaming’s fine tradition of top games and surpasses it. If you thought the original Thunderstruck was playable, you would be blown away by Thunderstruck II. The Norse mythology theme makes a welcome return and works beautifully again. The inclusion of Thor and his adventures around Asgard is just so engaging. As you would expect from a Microgaming slot, it also has decent visuals. Although it may not look as cutting-edge as more recent slots, the animations, characters and symbols are well-drawn. In terms of game design, it comes with a fairly standard 3 row, five-reel, and 243 ways to win. Look out for the Thunderstruck II logo, which is the game Wild. If it is part of a winning combo, your payout will be doubled! The RTP of Thunderstruck II is another big plus. At 96.65%, it remains one the highest around and should see you win back more of the money you put in.
Thunderstruck II bonuses
This is where this slot comes alive and why it is so famous for many players. The base game has a lovely Wildstorm feature which triggers at random and sees Wilds come into play. If they are placed across all reels, you could net over 8,000 times your stake! The other bonus feature to look out for here is Free Spins (called ‘The Great Hall of Spins’ in-game). Players trigger this when three or over of Thor’s Hammer Scatter symbols show up. There are four different Free Spin games to enjoy as below:
- Valkyrie Free Spins, where ten free goes are awarded, have a five times win multiplier attached. More Free Spins can also be won, up to 20.
- Loki Free Spins, which have a max win of 8,100 times your stake! 15 Free Spins are awarded in this mode, and there is also a Wild Magic bonus included, which can bring extra Wilds into play.
- Odin Free Spins, which comes with 20 Free Spins. You may also see Odin’s Raven appear on-screen and bring two times, three times, or six times win multiplier into play.
- Thor Free Spins, where 25 free goes are yours to enjoy and Rolling Reels for more wins. There is also up to a five times win multiplier in this mode.
The Free Spin mode you play depends on how many times you have entered the Great Hall of Spins before. As you trigger this bonus more, you will move up the ladder.
