Thunderstruck II is actually the Microgaming slot which really started their 243 ways to win craze. Designed as a sequel to their popular Thunderstruck original slot, Thunderstruck II continues the Norse mythology theme, and takes it to all new heights. Thunderstruck II features 243 paylines (as we’ve hinted), and is played over 5 reels. Players can choose coin values of 0.01 up to 0.05, with players able to bet anything from 1 to 10 coins per line. Paylines are fixed in this slot, so expect minimum bets of 0.30 per spin, and maximum bets of up to no more than 15.00 per spin. It is possible to win as much as a non-progressive 2,400,000 coins via this video slot.
The Thunderstruck II symbol is a wild icon in the game, and when it appears in a winning combination, it will double the value of a win. Wilds can replace all other icons save for scatters.
A Wildstorm feature is also present in the game, and can strike at random, turning as many as all 5 reels into entirely wild reels. When this feature is activated, you won’t be able to trigger the free spins bonus round. If you get 5 wild reels at once, though, you will hardly care.
The Great Hall of Spins is the free spins bonus in this slot, and it is triggered by landing 3, 4, or 5 of the Mjölnir (Thor’s hammer) icons anywhere on the screen. There are four different free spin bonuses, and the more times you enter the Great Hall of Spins, the better they get.
Your very first time in the Great Hall of Spins offers you Valkyrie’s bonus. It promises 10 free spins with all wins multiplied by 5x the normal rate of pay. When entering the bonus round for the fifth time, you will trigger Loki’s bonus. In it, players will receive a total of 15 free spins with a Magic Wild feature. That symbol appearing on the third reel can turn other symbols into wilds, boosting your wins.
Odin’s bonus is triggered when you enter the Great Hall of Spins a tenth time. It promises a total of 20 free spins, with a Wild Raven feature. At any point in the bonus, Odin’s ravens can turn random symbols in 2x or 3x multipliers. If both ravens land on the reels at once, those multipliers rise as high as 6x the normal rate of pay.
The final bonus round is Thor’s bonus, which is activated upon your fifteenth visit to the Great Hall of Spins. In it, players will bag 25 free spins with a Rolling Reels feature. For every consecutive win they land in the bonus, a multiplier will increase (from 2x up to 5x).
