Microgaming has released the sequel to the very popular video slot Thunderstruck. Hitting a string of online casinos now is Thunderstruck II, a 5-reel, 243-payline, non-progressive video slot. This game comes with a gamut of multipliers, wild symbols, scatters, free spins and the possibility to win a 2.5 million coin jackpot! Based on the actions of Thor, this video slot is packed with a 5-tier free spins bonus, wildstorms bonus, and more.
Thunderstruck II Theme
The online slot is based on the Norwegian fable of Thor. The characters are Odin, Loki, Vlakyrie, Raven and Thor, of course. The graphics and animations are HD, including the characters’ associated weapons and powers. The background music is mellow and mystical, evoking the sense that something is about to happen.
There’s Thor’s mighty hammer or Mjölnir, the rainbow road, longships and the standard 9, 10, Jack, Queen, King and Ace “dressed” according to the theme.
Bet Options and Other Functions
With 243 ways to win, surely the bets are way off the charts. Nope. Just the opposite. A player is presented with a betting range that starts from 0.30 to 15 per play in pounds, US dollars or Euros. A player cannot actually alter the number of lines but he can use a maximum of 10 coins. One of the two control panels are for experts (who prefer auto-play) and the other one is for regulars and novices who prefer to play manually.
The wild is the Thunderstruck II logo which substitutes for all graphics except Thor’s hammer. Games won using this wild are doubled during free spins and normal gaming. The wildstorm feature is triggered randomly. If a player fills up five reels with wilds, big winnings is at hand. If a player has three or more hammers, he gets the award Great Hall of Spins. If a player enters the Great Hall more than once, he gets more free spins and multipliers.
The first to fourth visit to the Great Hall of Spins has Valkyrie awarding 10 free spins and 5X multipliers to a player. On the fifth visit, Loki awards 15 free spins and possibly magic wilds on the 3rd reel. On the 10th visit, Odin awards 20 free spins including wild ravens which can randomly transform icons for the win. When two ravens are used, then the winnings are multiplied by 6. The 15th visit will earn the player Thor spins. He will gain 25 free spins with a possible 5x multiplier.
Thunderstruck II’s graphics, animation and sound effects are excellent. The video slot is easy and fun to play though the jackpot is non-progressive. The RTP is of great value for a player at 96.65%
