Ancient gods and mythology are always an excellent basis for an online slot machine; we’ve reviewed any number of slots of this genre over the years and the games rarely fail to impress. Thunderstruck is a Microgaming release based on the myths and tales of Norse mythology with a dramatic soundtrack to match.
Thunderstruck is a five reel and nine payline game which exudes power and drama from the glinting Thor’s Hammer to the wind-blown god of thunder himself. The low value symbols are represented by molten playing cards in a cast but the higher value symbols are all theme-related. We have a hunting horn, a bolt of lightning, Thor’s home – the castle of Thruthvanger on Asgard, Thor’s hand and lastly his famous hammer.
Special symbols are a pair of rams which serves as the scatter symbol and Thor himself who is appropriately wild.
Free spins are always a profitable bonus round and fortunately Thunderstruck doesn’t disappoint in this regard; if you can land three, four or five of the ram scatter symbols you’ll be rewarded with 15 free spins. During those spins each win will be subject to a 3x multiplier. You can see this bonus game in action in the video below.
Thor merits a mention here because of the fantastic way his hair blows in the wind when he helps to make a winning combination; as an extra bonus he will multiply each win by 2x if he features in it.
If you’d like to gamble your most recent win all you need to do is click the ‘Gamble’ button underneath the reels; you can now predict the colour or the suit of the next card to be drawn to give you the chance of winning 2x or 4x your prize. Collect at any point but if you’re prediction is wrong you’ll lose it all.
This option is worth a mention for the bewildering number of extra options it offers the player; when it’s selected just click ‘Autoplay’ and you’ll see a page full of choices relating to Autoplay and the Gamble feature.
Thunderstruck is a bright, cheery and fast-moving slot which stands the test of time; the background music adds to the proceedings and the bonus game makes it all fairly profitable.
