Thunderstruck 2

Thunderstruck was a hugely popular video slots game released in 2003, and Microgaming have fine tuned it and come up with an improved version, Thunderstruck 2. It still has Thor of course, along with other Norse characters, but has more advanced graphics and sound effects, as well as more bonus features to enjoy. Players who enjoyed the original game but thought it was beginning to look a little dated have flocked to play this version of the game, released in 2010.

Thunderstruck 2 has 5 reels but an amazing 243 different possible ways to win, a big improvement on the original 9 paylines. There is also an Achievement feature which is a new innovation – this means that each win is tracked, so if you want to complete the entire paytable you can now do so.

The Thunderstruck 2 logo is the Wild symbol; this will help create winning combinations by substituting for any other symbols apart from the Bonus Hammer Scatter symbol. If it does create a winning payline the payout will be doubled, so definitely something to look out for! If the Wild symbol is used in the Great Hall of Spins bonus game to complete a winning combination the payout is then multiplied by the wild multiplier value and any bonus game multiplier value, which can add up to give a great prize.

The Bonus Hammer symbol is the Scatter symbol, and two or more of these will lead to a payout. However three or more of these, anywhere on the reels, will trigger the Great Hall of Spins bonus game. The number of free spins depends on which chamber you enter; there are four different chambers of the Gods in this, three of them have be unlocked and can be done as you progress through the game. In every chamber the same bet that was played to activate the free spins will be used for every free spin.

The first chamber is that of Valkyrie the Maiden, who will give you ten free spins, with each win being multiplied by five. Once you have activated the bonus game five times you will unlock the chamber of Loki, the God of Mischief, who will not only give you fifteen free spins but also offers the chance to get the Wild Magic Feature. If you get the Wild Magic symbol on reel three it will randomly change some symbols into the Wild symbol, which will give you more chance of getting a win. Two or more of the Bonus Hammer symbol will also re-trigger free spins, 2 symbols will get you 1 free spin, 3 will give you 2 free spins, 4 symbols will give you 3 free spins and 5 Scatter symbols will give you 4 free spins. If you activate the bonus game ten times you will unlock the chamber of Odin. He will reward you with twenty free spins and there is also a Wild Raven feature. The Ravens can randomly change symbols into x 2 or x 3 multipliers, and if you get both Ravens you can be rewarded with a x 6 multiplier. The final chamber is that of Thor, and you will unlock this after you have activated the bonus game fifteen times. He will give you a generous 25 free spins with Rolling Reels, consecutive wins will increase the multiplier by x 2, x 3, x 4 or x 5.

There is also a Wild Storm bonus game feature, which can randomly happen at any time. This means that up to five of the reels can be transformed into wild reels to help create winning combinations. The Wild and Scatter symbols are not displayed during the Wild Storm feature although any wins will be recorded as achievements.

This is a fabulous game with some great bonus features, and the potential for some massive wins. Once you have unlocked a chamber in the Great Hall of Spins feature this will remain unlocked the next time you play the game. In the same way any Achievements are permanently highlighted in gold on the payout table, and will remain so when you come back to play again.
