Slots OnlinePublished: mon 2 aug 2021
The word is full of human beings, but only a relatively small number of them happen to be A-List celebrities. Similarly, the world is also full of online slot games, but only a few become so popular that they achieve widespread fame. Thunderstruck II is one such game.
Developed by Stormcraft Studios and released by Microgaming in 2010, Thunderstruck II has been in the 'popular' category of most online casinos ever since. It was a superb sequel to the original 2004 game Thunderstruck, which is now a bona fide classic, and now Stormcraft Studios have added a third title to this series in the shape of Thunderstruck Wild Lightning.
Thunderstruck Wild Lightning: Format and Presentation
Thunderstruck Wild Lightning has 5 reels, 4 rows and gives you 40 ways to win with every spin. One of the first things you'll notice when you launch the game is how stunningly gorgeous it is. Technology has come a long way over the last decade or so, and while Thunderstruck II is as good-looking as ever, this sequel has taken the aesthetics to a whole new level. Expect sumptuously rendered graphics, silky-smooth animations, and superbly detailed symbols.
Those symbols include runic versions of the playing card ranks of 9, 10, J, Q, K, and A, five World Stones, and Thor, who is a paying wild. Thor can appear stacked in the main game, and he will multiply any win that he participates in by either 2x or 4x. Thunderball symbols also appear on all reels in the main game, and Thor's hammer (Mjölnir) serves as a paying scatter.
To the left of the reels you will see four banners. These will show you the value of four jackpots that are up for grabs: the Mega, Major, Minor, and Mini. Below those banners are a Wildstorm meter and a Link&Win meter.
The audio is as epic as the story that is being told in this game. An entire soundtrack has been put together for this title (the full album can be heard on Spotify), and the styles of the tracks range from orchestral to hard rock and heavy metal. If you have a particular favourite, you can select a track to listen to as you play. Incidental sound effects are also superb, and there is plenty of voiceover content that really helps to pull you into the action.
Thunderstruck Wild Lightning: Link&Win Feature
As well as the other symbols already mentioned, balls of lightning showing cash values can also show up on screen. The Link&Win meter shows six empty spaces. Those spaces will fill up as balls of lightning appear on the screen. Land six on screen in the same spin, and the meter will fill to trigger the Link&Win Feature.
You will then receive three free respins. The balls of lightning will stick in place, and your aim is to land more of them. Every new arrival will also stick in place and reset the number of respins to three. The more of these symbols you land, the more rows you can unlock. You'll need 15, 20, 25, and 30 balls of lightning to unlock the fifth, sixth, seventh, and eighth rows, in turn.
Some symbols will be labelled with the Major, Minor, and Mini jackpot names, and those will help you to win 150, 50, or 25 times your stake.
This feature ends when you run out of respins or when you have filled the screen with special symbols. In the former case, you'll win the total value of the symbols obtained, including any jackpots. In the latter case, you'll win the Mega jackpot, which is worth 15,000 times your stake.
Thunderstruck Wild Lightning: Free Spins Feature
Every time you land a Mjölnir symbol on the reels in the base game, the Wildstorm meter on the left will increase by 1. Land three hammers at the same time, and you will trigger a free spins feature. There are five free spins modes that need to be unlocked via the meter, so you won't have your pick of all five modes straight away. Here's an overview of the five modes and what they offer:
Jotunheim Free Spins gives you 15 free spins, and wilds will multiply your win by 2x, 3x, or 5x.
Vanaheim Free Spins gives you 12 free spins, and wilds will multiply your win by 2x, 4x, or 6x.
Alfheim Free Spin gives you 9 free spins, and wilds will multiply your win by 3x, 5x, or 8x.
Nidavellir Free Spins gives you 6 free spins, and wilds will multiply your win by 5x, 8x, or 12x.
The Svartalfheim Free Spins mode is the best of all. You'll get a single free spin, and that will trigger a spectacular Wildstorm feature which we'll leave you to discover for yourself!
