As one of my favorite online slot games I was very unhappy when I heard that Thunderstruck was going to get a sequel. What is there to improve on? The game is perfect as it is, hence the fact that it is one of the most popular online slot games played. Well I have now played Thunderstruck II and I can confirm that this version is now the best online slot game ever released, also available in the Canadian Casinos Online. Wow, the game has stayed true to its original Nordic theme but with added characters and bonus features winning just got easier.
The game has changed to a 243 ways to win format, this means there are no longer pay lines just loads of winning combinations, each symbol is paid like a left to right scatter. With this type of set up players will no longer bet on an amount of pay lines but rather how many coins they would prefer to play per a spin. Thor still appears on the reels as the God of Thunder but he is now joined by Valkyrie, Loki and Odin, the graphics and sound effects have also been improved, in fact I even favored the mini intro movie more on the new game.
The major Jackpot is 1,000 coins and the minimum bets start at 1 coin which is a 30 credit and the max bet is 10 coins equating to 300 credits. Each additional coin played will multiply your win so players that play at max bet are looking at a x10 multiplier. A player who wins the jackpot on max bet will win ten times the jackpot amount; max bet is worth playing when you can win 10, 000 coins.
Thor no longer represents the wild symbol this has been replaced by the Thunderstruck Logo and it can substitute for other symbols helping to create winning combinations, it will also act as a multiplier doubling any wins it helps create. The wild symbol is also the jackpot symbol; players that get five wilds across all the reels will win the big payout.
The scatter is now Thors hammer three of these can release the free spins but with an added twist players will accumulate free spins each time the feature is triggered, players can check the status of the Great Hall of Spins on the pay table.
This time round the sequel out does the original I am glad Microgaming tampered with this game and released Thunderstruck II, try out the new version on Royal Vegas, Platinum Play, 7Sultans or Vegas Palms.
