Thunderstruck is one of the most popular and highly successful games of Microgaming. The game was successful that it encouraged the gaming developer to make a sequel for it, which is called Thunderstruck II. The game lets players rub shoulders with the gods of the North as they spin the reels to earn great line payouts and trigger rewarding bonus rounds. This game has a simple setup of five spinning reels and a total of nine paylines.
The symbols that appear spinning on the reels of the game are all inspired by the Northern gods as they include Thor accompanied by his mighty and powerful hammer, Odin, Loki, a Viking’s castle, a Viking ship as well as poker card symbols that come with thunderous visuals to fit the theme of the game.
Placing the stakes:
Like any video slot machine, players will find the different betting options at the bottom of the screen right underneath the reels. This game offers players three options that they can toggle through in order to place their final stake. They will be able to choose the number of lines they want to activate, from one line up to nine lines and the value of the coins they are going to use to place the stakes, which varies between 0.01 and 1. Lastly, the number of coins they want to place on each line as they can place from one to five coins.
The Wild Icon:
The wildcard of this game is none other than Thor himself. He will be able to use his magical powers to transform to any other symbol, with the exception of other bonus symbols in order to aid players in earning a payout. When that happens, Thor will multiply any winnings earned by a 2x multiplier.
The Free Spins Round:
The Godly Rams symbol is the scatter symbol, which can help players trigger a number of free spins. They can earn up to 15 spins when they get a minimum of 3 scatter symbols on the reels of the game. They also pay players in scattered rewards.
The Gamble Feature:
Thunderstruck slot comes with a gamble feature, which allows players to make a choice once they earn a payout, whether through line payouts or free spins. They can choose to collect and play another round or they can gamble what they have won in a 50/50 game of luck for a chance to double them or lose them.
