Thunderstruck II Slot Review
Thunderstruck II is the second version of the popular Thunderstruck slot developed by one of the software giants, Microgaming. The slot was released in May 2010 and it has become one of the most popular games since then. Thunderstruck II has 5 reels and 243 Ways to Win and you can play the slot with up to 300 coins per spin or £15 a spin. The game is also available in Bitcoins. Thunderstruck II is themed around a well known Norse mythology and players can see symbols of Nordic gods on the reels such as Odin, Thor, Loki and Valkyrie. The slot is non progressive, but it has a nice jackpot of 1,000 coins.
Wild and Scatter Symbols
The slot has two important symbols- the wild represented by the Thunderstruck II logo and the scatter represented by the Thor’s Hammer icon. The wild symbol substitutes for all other symbols except for the scatter, while the scatter icon triggers the main feature of the slot. The wild icon, however, won’t apply during the Wildstorm special feature because this feature is randomly triggered. The Wildstorm bonus will give you one free spin with up to five reels turning wild. If you trigger four or more wild reels, get ready for big wins.
The Great Hall of Spins
This is the slot’s main feature. It is comprised of free spins and a multi level element. Three or more Thor’s Hammer scatter symbols win you an entry to the Great Hall of Spin feature. This feature has four levels that are activated by getting into the bonus round a couple of times. Firstly, there is the Valkyrie feature activated on you first to forth feature visits. Here you win 10 free spins and a 5x win multiplier. The free games can be retriggered.
Secondly, there is the Loki feature triggered on your fifth to ninth feature visits. The feature gives you 15 free spins and special Wild Magic symbols on the middle reel that can transform symbols into more wilds. Thirdly, the Odin feature is available on your tenth to 14th feature visits. It gives you 20 free spins and special Odin’s Raven symbols that can turn icons into 2x or 3x win multipliers randomly. If you get two, you will win a 6x multiplier.
Lastly, there is the Thor feature playable from your 15th feature visits onwards. This feature wins you 25 free spins as well as rolling reels. This means that consecutive winning spins rise up the multiplier from 2x and 3x to 4x and 5x. In other words, you can get a 5x win multiplier on each free spin.
