Thunderstruck Slot Machine
>> Play Thunderstruck At Slot Stars Casino <<
Thunderstruck slot machine dates back to 2004. One of the pioneers of online casinos, Microgaming rolled out this slot inspired by the Nordic god of thunder and lightning Thor much before the comic book hero made his way into the Marvel cinematic universe. The first Thor film was a major success and he remains one of the more popular characters among the Avengers. But all of this was a fairly distant future when Thunderstruck rolled out.
Thunderstruck is a video slot featuring Thor who is also regarded as the Nordic god of storms apart from thunder and lightning. The video slot has five reels and nine paylines. There are rewarding wilds and several free spins. The special features are enticing enough. Being a game dedicated to Thor, the slot expectedly has several symbols related to storm and lightning. You would obviously get the Thor symbol and his hammer, you would get his fist and a horn, the rams and lightning as well as a stormy castle. The rams are the scatter. There are the general poker symbols as well. Since the launch of this slot, Microgaming has followed it up with Thunderstruck II which definitely fares better with the graphics. However, the first Thunderstruck has its own charm despite the cartoon like rendering of the characters and symbols.
Thor himself is the wild in the game. He has the power to replace all other symbols except the rams as they cater to the purpose of a scatter symbol. Whatever wins you have at the time you get Thor replacing all other symbols in a given winning combination will be doubled courtesy of the Nordic god and his generosity. There are fifteen free spins and up to three times multipliers for every player who progresses enough. The free spins are rather easy to get. You can trigger the free spins if you get three or more of the scatter symbols. The rams which are the scatter can appear on any reel and in any pattern. As long as you get three or more, you would trigger the free spins and the multiplier. All your wins during the free spins will get a multiplier and you would end up with triple the win amount. If you can land three or more of the scatter symbols or rams then you would qualify for fifteen more spins in addition to what you already had or had won.
There is an additional perk in this bonus round of free spins. You would have accumulated some credits by this stage and if you can get the scatter wins then the resulting winning amount will be multiplied by the credits you have wagered while venturing into the bet. Thor is not the most advanced slot nor is it the most rewarding among slots of its era. But it is a fitting game of its time and thus has a retro feel for those who have a knack for it. The rewards are generous and you would certainly have fun progressing through the game and then trying Thunderstruck II.
