Thunderstruck 2 Slot is a slot with a Nordic theme and the successor of an older Microgaming slot (I think from 2004), surprisingly called Thunderstruck. The graphics are very nicely done and the symbols show Odin, Loki, Thor, Viking ships, and other symbols. Nevertheless, I am not a fan of themes that use A, Q, and K symbols. Surely the developers could have come up with something more appropriate from the nordic mythology.
Maybe I’m a little fussy right now. The reason why it is such a popular game is that it has a relatively low house advantage (about 3%) and there are four different bonus games.
If you get three symbols from Thor’s hammer, you will be taken to the aptly named ‘Great Hall of Spins’. The more often you trigger the Great Hall of Spins bonus round, the more bonus features you can get (see the game instructions below for details). This is a great idea and it makes Thunderstruck 2 a more addictive game than its predecessor. There is even a payout achievements table where you can see what you have already achieved.Thunderstruck 2 Slot MICROGAMING RTP 96.65%
Progress can be carried forward from one game session to another, so you don’t have to do everything in one go. I’ve read that some players think that the variance in a bonus round to others will be lower, so that would be nice. But to be honest, I don’t really see a difference.
I forgot to mention that there are 243 game lines and a maximum payout of 2.4 million coins! You heard right: 2.4 million coins!
Thunderstruck 2 Slot
Wild symbol: Thunderstruck 2 logo. Replaces all other symbols except the Thor Hammer scatter symbol. Wins by the wild symbol are also doubled.
Scatter symbol: Thor’s hammer. Three or more Thors Hammer symbols trigger the Great Hall of Spins Bonus Round:
Valkyrie: 1-4 visits to the Great Hall trigger this bonus. You get 10 free spins with a x5 multiplier.
Loki: 5-9 visits give you the Loki bonus round with 15 free spins. Additionally, there is a Wild Magic symbol that can appear on reel 3. When it appears it will randomly turn other symbols into Wild symbols.
Odin: 10-14 visits to the Great Hall will trigger the Odin bonus feature. Here you get 20 free spins with Wild Raven symbols. One or two ravens can fly over the reels and turn symbols into a winning icon. Two ravens also give you an x6 multiplier.
Thor: 15 or more visits give you the option of the Thor bonus round. This offers 25 free spins. Successive wins increase the multiplier up to a maximum of x5.
Wild Storm Round: This is triggered randomly. In this feature, Thor appears and up to 5 reels can be turned into stacked Wild symbols, which of course can bring considerable winnings.
