|What’s Hot||What’s Not|
It was January 2010, when Microgaming announced that they would be releasing a remake of one of their most celebrated games Thunderstruck. We expected it, it came as no surprise, as the original slot is still one of the most talked about slots even to date.
Please join us in welcoming Thunderstruck II, a progeny of the original slot, enjoying the same original features and more to give you more thrills and better rewards. The difference? Thunderstruck II features 4 rewarding bonus games that could award you up to 2.4 million coins. Intrigued yet? After all everyone needs a pick me up, a makeover if you may, a new slot that enjoys the same fun basics of the original but with added flair. Yes please!
Join Odin, Thor, Loki and the Valkyrie into the battle where lightning and thunder will pave your way to the sacred land of Asgard, where the mighty gods will join forces in rewarding you payouts. An online slot based on Norse Mythology has never been more affluent and more gripping.
Thunderstruck II is a 5 reel, 243 pay line video slot machine that is designed and powered by Microgaming. Available since 2010, it is the revamped version of the 2004 slot sensation Thunderstruck, a slot machine that pays homage to the Norse mythology and the mighty gods.
Bets start at a small minimum bet of 0.30 and go up to 15.00 per spin. You can adjust your bet every time that you take a go at spinning the reels, depending on your mood and game play. Remember that the gods will award you bigger payouts when playing with bigger bets!
What we truly enjoy about this slot machine is the fact that Microgaming did not change or alter the original features much, in fact the slot machine enjoys the same symbols, the same characters, we only changes we can talk about are the better graphics, and the better bonus rounds, and the chunkier payouts. Microgaming have kept in mind that everyone cherished the graphics and the sounds of the original version, so why alter something that is already faultless?
Enjoy Thunderstruck II on all gaming platforms, as this slot machine can be played both on desktop and via mobile devices. The gods are everywhere!
Bonuses and Rewards
Norse mythology introduces us to many characters; characters we grew to read about, idolise and eventually love. What we seriously like about Thunderstruck II is the fact that each of the characters from our history books team up to formulate their own bonus rounds.
Let’s start by talking about the Windstorm feature that is triggered when a raging thunderstorm will take over your reels. A free spin is immediately rewarded with up to 5 expanding reels. Forget the raging battles that the gods fought at sea, a thunderstorm during this slot machine awards you well.
Meet the mighty gods as you unlock the Great Hall of Free Spins, where you will be exposed to various rounds and various bonuses that revolve around your favourite Norse mythology gods. Should you land the Valkyries Free Spins Bonus will land you a good 15 free spins along with a 5x multiplier. Should you unlock the Loki Free Spins Bonus, again you will be awarded 15 free spins whilst random symbols on your reels will morph into wilds to expose you to better payouts.
The mighty Odin and the king of all the Norse gods will award you a cool 20 spins, should you land some raven symbols during this stage, you will get multipliers of x2 x3 up to x6. Needless to say, this is one of the best bonus rounds that we enjoy in Thunderstruck II.
And finally the god of thunder and possibly the god for whom this slot machine was names after, Thor makes an appearance during the Thor Free spins bonus round. Should you be on a lucky trail of winnings and should you enter the Hall of Free spins more than 15 times in total, the gods will establish that you are fit enough to enter meet Thor, and if you are worth of the meetings, they will award 25 free spins coupled with cascading reels. The cascading reels themselves make winning combinations disappear and create more winning combinations along the way. The more wins you land the better the multiplier you get at the end that could be up to 5x you win.
Look out and pray the gods to land you 5 thunderstruck symbols on your reels, as a reasonable fixed jackpot of 1000 coins is attached to it!
