Microgaming’s Thunderstruck II is the highly anticipated sequel to Thunderstruck, one of the most successful games in the pokies industry. Based on popular characters from the Old Norse mythology, the game has great artwork and new innovative features, and manages to live up to the high expectations set by its predecessor.
Playing this classic pokies game will take you to Asgard, the realm of the Old Norse gods. The game features the characters of Thor, the God of Thunder, the mischievous god Loki and, of course, the Father of the Gods, the one-eyed Odin. The game also has a Valkyrie, a female character from the Norse mythology, who decides who dies in a battle and takes the chosen warriors to Valhalla. Among the other symbols of the game are also a classic Viking longship and Bifrost – the rainbow bridge to Asgard.
Thunderstruck II has high quality graphics, as well as visual and sound effects helping the player to immerse into the universe of the Old Norse gods. The game now has five spinning reels and offers players 243 different ways to win, with no need for the player to select the number of paylines. The minimum and maximum coin sizes that the player is allowed to bet are 0.01 and 0.025, respectively. The maximum bet placed per spin is 30 times the bet placed per line.
In addition, this sequel also has a unique “paytable achievements” feature which both helps players keep track of their winnings and provides casino operators with a wide range of promotional and slot tournament opportunities during the game play.
The game also has a “Great Hall of Spins” which you can enter by hitting three, four or five bonus symbols. When a player enters the hall, he or she has the opportunity to unlock different chambers with diverse bonus features. At the end of the “Great Hall of Spins” bonus game, winnings are collected automatically.
Play for Fun
Even though the concept of the game is rather simple and straightforward, players can nevertheless benefit from playing Thunderstruck II in a demo mode at first so as to get acquainted with the symbols and various game specifics.
The game logo appears as a wild and multiplier symbol. When acting as a wild, it doubles the payout of any combination it completes, and creates its own combination when multiple symbols appear on a payline. The “Bonus Hammer” is a scatter symbol, which can both complete a winning scatter combination, and activate the Great Hall of Spins bonus game when three or more appear on the five reels.
There is also a “Wild Storm” bonus game which is activated randomly, transforming up to five reels into a wild reel. Players, however, need to keep in mind that during a wild storm bonus game, neither the game logo, nor the bonus hammer symbol will appear.
Thunderstruck II is among the most popular pokies games, since it is both an entertaining and rewarding experience, which will help you unleash your inner Viking.
