Slots Review – Thunderstruck II

Software Platform : Microgaming


Thunderstruck II is the sequel to the phenomenally popular Thunderstruck online slot game from Microgaming. The slot game is themed around Norse mythology and features wonderful graphics and superb animation. It has proved to be even more popular than the original Thunderstruck and is one of the most popular online slot games out there.

The symbols in this game include the four Norse Gods – Valkyrie, Loki, Odin and Thor. The city of Asgard also features, as does a Viking longship and playing card values from nine through to the Ace.

Pay Lines and Betting Options

There are five reels in play at Thunderstruck and a huge 243 pay lines. The number of pay lines is not adjustable and all pay lines are automatically activated when you play this online slot. There are some betting options though as you can change the number of coins you bet per spin and also the value of those coins.

Wild Symbol

At Thunderstruck II the game logo is the wild symbol. It can substitute for all other symbols apart from the bonus symbol. Any prize for a winning combination that is formed using the wild symbol is doubled. The game also features the Wildstorm feature which is randomly awarded and turns up to five reels wild.

Scatters, Free Spins and Bonus Rounds

The scatter symbol at Thunderstruck II is Thor’s war hammer. Two or more of the scatter appearing anywhere in view award instant prizes. Two of the hammers pays back your total bet, three is twice the bet, four is twenty times your total bet and all five is generous two hundred times your total bet.

If you have three or more scatter symbols in view then you also gain entrance to the Great Hall of Spins – the free spin feature at Thunderstruck II. The free spin feature gets progressively better the more times it is triggered. The game automatically remembers how many times it has been triggered so if you leave the slot and come back to play another time your sequence still counts.


There is no progressive jackpot at Thunderstruck II and even the fixed jackpots are a little on the low side. However, with so many ways to win on every spin and some great features, this online slot game is still well worth playing regardless.
