Thunderstruck II follows the adventures of the mighty Norse god of thunder – Thor. Inspiration for this magnificent slot came from Microgaming’s previous slot release – yes, you’ve guessed it; Thunderstruck. There are a few very noticeable differences between the two similar slots; the original slot offered a 5 reel, 9 win line engine whilst the second instalment delivers more bang for your buck with a total of 243 ways to win in each spin. Additional features have been implemented to keep players entertained throughout, that combined with animated graphics and an immersive soundtrack make up all the ingredients for a perfect and thrilling masterpiece.
Anything else to note? The major difference between Thunderstruck and Thunderstruck II is the characters; the former focused heavily on Thor whilst the later incorporates more of the Norse mythology gang, so don’t be surprised to see Loki, Odin and the kick-ass Valkyrie joining forces. One look at the bonus features and you’ll be amazed. Anyone who has ever played the original slot will know that the free spins bonus was pretty impressive with its 15 free spins and 3x multiplier, but now, Microgaming have created more excitement with four different free spins features and naturally, each is named after one of the four Norse heroes.
The slot game will take players into a different world, where gods reign supreme. Recently, Microgaming have packed another feature into the slot, but more info on this a little later. With the theme being Norse mythology, you’re guaranteed to see lightning, the infamous hammer and plenty of action. But before you can dive in, you’ll need to set your bet. Use the control panel to the lower of your screen to do this. Adjust the number of coins and coin value to get to your desired bet level. Conservative players can play safe with bets as low as 30p a spin, but the more you bet, the more you can win. Max bets reach their peak at £15 a spin, which isn’t exactly a lot for Microgaming standards.

Everyone wants to know how to win a jackpot and it’s certainly easier said than done.
