Online slots don’t really come much bigger than Thunderstruck II. This slot is a living legend, still hugely popular, four years after it was first unveiled to the gaming world.
One of Microgaming’s biggest titles, this Norse mythology themed video slot can be found in all their top online casinos, and is the sequel to the equally as original Thunderstruck I title. This was one of two slots (the other being Immortal Romance), that really introduced Microgaming’s 243 ways to win feature to the gaming world.
How to play Thunderstruck II slots online
If you haven’t played it already, you’ll discover that Thunderstruck II is incredibly simple to wager on. The video slot itself features 5 reels, and was one of Microgaming’s first 243 ways to games. This means that there are 243 paylines to win on.
Because of this vast amount of paylines, you can’t wager on them all individually. Instead, players must wager a minimum of £0.30 per spin, but for this you get all of the paylines activated. Coin values range from £0.01 up to £0.05, and up to 10 of them can be wagered per spin. This means that the slot never costs more than £15.00 per spin.
The high playing card icons play a prominent role in the imagery of this slot. They have also been designed in the same ice blue colouration as the background of the slot. However, other icons are also present. Mjölnir (Thor’s hammer), Thor himself, Valkyrie, Loki, Raven and Odin all make appearances, as do longboats and others.
Thunderstruck II’s scatter
The scatter icon in Thunderstruck II is Mjölnir (Thor’s hammer). This icon will trigger the Great Hall of Spins, when three or more are located anywhere on the reels. The more times you enter the Great Hall of Spins, the better the free spins bonuses will be.
Valkyrie will offer you 10 free spins with a 5x multiplier on your first four visits. Your fifth to tenth visits will see Loki offer you 15 free spins with magic wilds on the central reel. Visit between 10 and 15 times, and Odin will offer you 20 free spins with the raven symbol as a wild.
They can also transform other symbols into wilds, and when they appear they offer 6x multipliers. Finally, visit 15 or more times, and players will win 25 free spins with an increasing multiplier (up to 5x) with consecutive wins. A rolling reels feature is triggered too, which offers players chances to win multiple times per spin.
The wild symbol
Thunderstruck II uses its title logo as the wild icon. The wild icon can substitute itself for all other symbols, with the exception of the scatter icon. All wins achieved by using wilds are offered 2x multipliers. A Wildstorm feature can also be triggered randomly which offers to fill many reels with wilds.
The Thunderstruck II jackpot
Thunderstruck II is a non-progressive video slot. This naturally means that its jackpot is non-progressive in nature. Despite that, players can win up to 10,000 coins in this video slot. In order to land that jackpot, they will need to line up plenty of wild icons across the reels.
Other notes on Thunderstruck II
This is really the slot that spawned all the regular modern video slots that we all know and love by Microgaming. Even today, a few years on, Thunderstruck II, is still one of the most played online slots in many casinos. Its graphics are also still decent, even all these years later.
Great value for money, there is still much entertainment to be had by this classic sequel.
