When Microgaming announced that they will create a sequel to their popular Thunderstruck online casino game, the gaming community was quite excited. The good news is that Thunderstruck 2 has met and exceeded their expectations. It contains all the attractive features from the original game and few more features and updated graphics for optimal playing pleasure.
Graphics & Theme
Thunderstruck 2, just like the original game, is inspired by Nordic Mythology. Players will be seeing the most popular gods from this mythology all the time – from Odin and Thor to Valkyrie and Loki. There are a few other symbols from Nordic mythology used in the game even though there are classic playing car symbols too.
Thunderstruck II comes with interesting complementing visual elements, but we can freely say that Microgaming should have used more animations. Overall, the graphics can be described as decent and sufficient, but as a result of that, the gameplay is smooth and the game works on almost any computer, be it old or new. The soundtrack is solid, but those planning to play for a longer period of time will probably mute it and leave only the sound effects.
Thunderstruck II also made the cut as one of a few slots to be featured in the first virtual reality casino. Although the game doesn't offer overly impressive visuals or animations, it certainly belongs to the group of more popular slots overall, so it made sense to include it into the limited selection of VR slots.
Now here’s the best part of Thunderstruck 2. This is a game with many interesting features and options. For starters, the Wild symbol (which is actually the game logo) can substitute every ordinary symbol found on the reels. In addition, if you use this symbol in a winning combination you will actually double the winning. On the other hand, the Wildstorm feature which occurs randomly can transform any reel into wild symbols.
Another important feature of this game is the Great Hall of Spins. Whenever you see at least three symbols of Thor’s hammer anywhere on the reels, you will get access to this feature.
When you see them, you can opt for one of the four bonuses. The minimal bonus is the Valkyrie bonus which gives you ten see spins. The Thor bonus is the most exciting one because it gives players 25 Free Spins and triggers unique multipliers.
The trendy theme, the neat design, the attractive free spins that are part of the Great Hall of Spins feature are some of the things that make Thunderstruck 2 worth trying.
