No video slot game section is complete without a mention of Thunderstruck II, in our opinion. This Microgaming slot changed the landscape of online slots when it first came out with its innovative graphics, and fantastic game play.
And it´s still up there- we find ourselves coming back to this game time and time again, despite the volume of new releases that we see these days. Later games like the Game of Thrones Slot have all evolved from this game. The Immortal Romance slot runs on the same slots engine – it’s a bit more volatile.
Thunderstruck II Slot Review
Thunderstruck II is a blockbuster slot (2nd only in popularity to the Mega Moolah slot)- there´s no other word for it – this sequel to the original Thunderstruck slot has managed that rare feat- to leave an already popular game in its shadow. The game play is cleverly designed with lots of opportunities to win, keeping you well entertained.
The slot comes with 5 reels and 243 Ways to Win and you can play it on all available platforms- so desktops, laptops, tablets and smartphones.
The Thor symbol is wild and will double the payout of any winning combo it helps to complete. It will alos pay out if you land multiple Thors on an active pay line.
The Bonus Features
OK-make sure you are seated, as this is where the Thunderstruck II slot comes into its own. There are wilds, expanding wilds, scatter free spins with 4 different rewards, multipliers that go from 2x to 6x and more. You really need to test out the demo above to get the full flavour- we´ll walk you through the main bonuses and features below (we´re itching to play the game already)!
We´d rank this as a Medium Variance slot, so it can pump out some decent streaks in the base game but you will need same “skin in the game” to ride out slow periods.
But, it´s the free spins round that you need to be aiming for. We are talking big chunky wins here, if you are lucky enough to get in and stay in for a decent run.
The Great Hall of Spins
In Thunderstruck II (click here for a site dedicated to this game), you´ll be able to unlock more free spin bonuses the longer you play. This is a popular feature that you´ll come across in many of Microgaming´s newer premium 243 Ways to Win slots, such as Avalon 2 and the Game of Thrones Slot.
So the more times you manage to get into The Great Hall of Free Spins by landing the scatters, the more free spins features will open up. (Immortal Romance has a similar mechanic, well it should do, as it´s based on the same engine). What also makes ThunderstruckII so fun to play are the graphics and soundtrack. The sound of the door knocker scattters thudding in for example, or the Valkyrie beckoning you into the great hall, or Thor unleasing his thunder- it´s all designed to get the adrenaline pumping and the heart racing and it´s very successful at doing just that.
This is a game that looks great on an iPad or a Android Tablet.
One of the best, up there is the pantheon of slot gods! If you haven´t played the Thunderstruck II slot yet, well, you are missing out on one of the classics. A true thoroughbred.
