Heathen Gods and ancient mythology usually make for interesting slot themes as they are closely linked to power and prosperity. Immediately, when you enter the game interface for Thunderstruck you are greeted with an impressive layout, and the game has been developed by slot specialists Microgaming, so naturally, you can expect a game of great quality. Players will be blown away by the cool music and sound effects. More importantly, the game is a tonne of fun to play, and we actually found it quite addictive. The gameplay is smooth, and there are some thunderous bonus rounds to keep it interesting. All the key info on Thunderstruck is below.
Our Verdict: Thunderstruck has seen success since its release which has led to the release of a sequel Thunderstruck 2. There is still plenty to enjoy in this version, and we really enjoyed playing it. The game manages to strike a good balance between gameplay, music, and graphics. The background is very attractive, and there are plenty of interesting symbols to keep you entertained including the infamous Thor's hammer! There are 5 reels and 9 paylines which are standard for some of Microgaming's older games. This doesn't detract from the game however, and you can bet from just 5p which is great. It's a top slot, so check it out!
Wild Symbol: When we inspect the game further we learn about both the normal and bonus symbols and Thor's hammer acts as the wild. Basically, this means that it substitutes for other symbols on the reel and thus allows you to pick up additional wins. It substitutes for everything except the scatter which is the two rams heads which activate the bonus rounds. The wild and scatter are the key to a lot of your gameplay and can help you win big so watch out for both of them and learn how they function. They also activate some of the mini games below so take a look.
Free Spins: Slots players love a good old free spins bonus round as it is an effective way of keeping the game going without having to bet additional funds. These are available on Thunderstruck, and the scatter symbol is the key to triggering them. You need to land 3, 4 or 5 of those ram scatters that we mentioned and for your trouble, you will receive a generous 15 free spins which is fantastic. Additionally, a multiplier of 3X will also come into play during this feature so it can really help you win big. We found that it triggered quite often so watch out for it.
Gamble Feature: This is a popular but risky feature, and you can risk your latest win for the chance at doubling and in some cases quadrupling your bet. A card will be presented to you, and you have to guess the suit and (or) colour to be in with a chance of multiplying your bet. It can get frustrating to use so only use it every now and then and take a break if you are not having any luck.
