Thunderstruck Slot Review

Thunderstruck is a 5 reel 9 payline video slot powered by the impressive Microgaming software and was created back in 2003. It’s based on Norse mythology and is a classic slot game that has caused a sequel (Thunderstruck II) to be created. You can play for a little as 9p a spin to as much as £45 a spin.

Look out for the Thor wild symbol as this symbol will double your win amount when it forms part of a winning combination. However, if you get 3 or more Ram symbols anywhere on the reels, you will activate the Free Spins feature. Here you are awarded 15 free spins with a 3x multiplier (wins trebled).

You can also trigger an additional 15 free spins (with a 3x multiplier of course) if you obtain 3 Rams during the feature taking your total to 30 free spins with a 3x multiplier. You should win about 30 times your stake on average in the feature but I’ve managed to win up to 450 times my stake on a couple of occasions.

Despite the game seeming quite basic, it’s become one of the most popular online slots of all time. It’s a medium variance slot I would say meaning that wins can be pretty big (although not that often). The fact that the graphics are a little dated makes Thunderstruck more appealing to me than most newer slots – this game is still in the top 10 most played slot games for Microgaming casinos. It’s fast paced (like Cleopatra II) which I like and still one I play quite regularly.
