A wild storm of free spins and Ragnorok await

This Thunderstruck 2 slot is the sequel to the popular Thunderstruck slot found at many Microgaming casinos online, and turns up the volume on the original by 1000%.

The first of these online casino slots is very simple and basic. You had one free spins round, scatters, multipliers and 9 paylines. This newer Thunderstruck 2 slot machine ups the anti as it builds on the basics and brings you an even more adventurous, fun and an exciting 243 ways to win slot machine.

The theme and graphics have been changed to add more detail and more graphical detailed characters and symbols. You’ll find the god of thunder, Thor, as well as Odin, Loki, a Valkyrie, an Asgard viking ship, and the chiselled A – 9 lower paying symbols.

But it’s the Thunderstruck II slot logo that is the highest paying symbol and acts as the wild. It also doubles all wins it’s involved in. And seeing as this is a 243 ways to win slot, there are far more ways you can create a winning combination than in the original Thunderstruck.

Strike it rich or face the end of the world?

There are some decent wins possible in the base game, even though this Thunderstruck II slot game is on the lower end of the volatility scale. More often than not you will get little to nothing with a few 30x – 40x your bet big wins thrown in on occasion.

And if you are lucky enough to randomly trigger the WildStorm bonus feature you can get some magical wins. These can strike at any point during the base game turning 1, 2, 3, 4 or even all 5 of the reels wild.

Very much like lightning striking in the same place twice, it’s a rare bonus feature to see, but can definitely put a smile on your face if it hits at just the right time.

Did we also mention you could potentially win a 2.4 million coin jackpot? No? Well you can, and wouldn’t that be a pretty sweet bonus.

However, that big coin jackpot hides in the free spins, which if they don’t come soon or often enough, can feel like the Ragnarok, or the end of the world, has come early for your bank balance.

Free spins bonuses and big wins are possible here

4 Free spin bonuses with multipliers and magic wilds

The one symbol we have failed to mention so far is that of the bonus symbol. The unmistakable Mjolnir, or Thor’s hammer, with the word ‘Bonus’ on it is, you guessed it, the bonus symbol.

Find 3 or more of these beauties across 3 or more reels and you will open up The Great Hall of Spins. This is where the bigger wins of the game can occur and where, after you have played for long enough, you start to choose your own fate.

These free spins games are progressive, meaning that the more times you trigger the bonus feature the more free spin bonuses unlock.

From the first time you get the Valkyrie bonus which comes with 10 free spins and every win is multiplied by 5.

Then after every 5th trigger you get a choice of the following:

  • 5th Trigger: Loki Bonus gives you 15 free spins with a special Wild Magic symbol that randomly transforms symbols into extra wilds
  • 10th Trigger: Odin Bonus gives you 20 free spins with the Wild Raven feature. This is where Odin’s ravens randomly turn symbols in to 2x and 3x multipliers increasing your winnings.
  • 15th Trigger: Unlocks the Thor 25 free spins with rolling reels and increasing multiplier from 2x – 5x for consecutive wins.

In order to unlock all of the free spins you will have to keep coming back and playing this Microgaming Thunderstruck 2 video slot.

Because you at least want to get to the Loki free spins and those magic wilds. Here we’ve managed to get a good 80x our bet wins and many have won much more – 2000 times your bet and above.

Who’s this godly Microgaming game for?

With a betting range of 0.30 up to a conservative 15.00 this game appeals to all types of budgets.

If you have a smaller budget and only want to bet 0.09 per spin then perhaps give the original Thunderstruck casino slot a go, still a favourite with many, the writer of this Thunderstruck II review included.

And if you do decide to play V2, you will need to budget wisely in order to succeed in unlocking all those free spin bonuses.

Granted you won’t have to play all in one sitting as the game saves your progress, so as long as you head back to the same casino, and open up the game, you can continue where you left off.

Much like how the Immortal Romance slot works.

Why play Thunderstruck 2 slot online?

Well, that 2.4 million coin jackpot would be nice, right? But that’s not the only reason to play. The unlockable free spin games add something special to the game. The chance to see that rare unicorn of a WildStorm bonus is a nice challenge too.

And with the possibility to play on you smartphone and tablet in the Thunderstruck 2 mobile slot, you can continue your journey to free spins glory wherever you find yourself.

Microgaming have definitely raised the bar with a sequel that is so popular with so many slots players world wide, it over shadows the original. Hard to do, but just goes to show what a great game this Thunderstruck II slot truly is.
