The 5 reel, 9 payline Thunderstruck slot has become a bit of a cult classic. It certainly qualifies as a popular choice for this Godsofslots site, with Thor and his giant hammer. Lots of thunder cracking and the legenary scatter rams grace the screen in one of Microgaming’s most sort after video slots.
Part of Thunderstrucks’ popularity is the incredibly simple free spins bonus game. Nothing is simpler than the 15 free spins at 3x multiplier in the Thunderstruck bonus game, with the chance to retrigger at anytime. It’s just as exciting as hitting the bonus game in more modern slots such as Playtech’s Gladiator.
To trigger the bonus game in Thunderstuck you need to get 3 or more of the Ram scatter symbols across any of the reels. The great thing is that the free spins can be retriggered during the bonus game and there are some nice rewards, with anything up to 500x your stake.
In the normal game you can also hit some big wins by lining up the main game symbols. IF you ever get 5 Thor’s then get in touch and I will post your screen shot. This is very rare, but pays out 10,000 coins if hit!
Back in 2010 Microgaming released a rare sequal, introducing Thunderstruck 2. Normally sequals don’t live up to the expectation, but I can gladly say that this one is very good. You can see my full review of Thunderstruck 2 here and make your own opinion of this game. Another game that is also worth checking out is Playtech’s Thor. The same character, but a totally different game as you will soon find out.
