When it comes to choosing themes for slot games, there are so many avenues that designers can go down. A really popular one is to draw from mythology, there’s certainly plenty of gods and amazing stories to choose from. That’s the case here in ‘Thunderstruck’ from Micrograming which takes us back to Norse Mythology. For most of us that means reading Thor comics as he battles against Loki and the popular movies that the characters have appeared in.
This is a five-reel game that has three rows of symbols but just the nine paylines for you to try and win some cash on.
Symbols include a hunting home, the Castle of Thruthvander on Asgard where Thor resides, Thor’s hand, his legendary hammer and a hunting horn. The lower value symbols are the nine to Ace playing cards that at least have a golden look. Couldn’t we have had some more Asgard related symbols though?
The wild symbol here is Thor and he can substitute for other symbols to get you winning combinations. You’ll love the way Thor’s hair blows in the wind when he helps create a winning combination. Hopefully you’ll be seeing that a few times when playing this game Even better that win he’s just got you will be doubled. He can’t substitute for the pair of rams that are the scatter symbol in this game and play an important part in triggering the bonus game.
The game can be played in regular or expert mode. Upgrading to expert mode means you can set an autoplay. That’s a handy feature if you want some time away from the screen. Ensure that your account has enough funds to play all the games you’re setting up.
It’s a good idea to find out as much information as possible about the game before you start playing it for real. Go through the paytable which tells you all about the winning combinations and the bonus games. Have some free games to see just how the game runs.
A total of 15 free spins will be given to you if at least three of the ram scatter symbols end up anywhere on the reels. It’s really worth your while getting into this bonus round because all wins you get are tripled.
There’s also a gamble feature in this game where you can try to double or quadruple the win you’ve just had in the base game. It’s not compulsory and you really have to be careful with this. Your task is to correctly guess the colour of the next card (to double your win) or the suit (to quadruple it). One wrong guess and you lose all your win.
There’s plenty to enjoy about this game. The theme is a good one and well adhered to. The bonus game can definitely get you some good profits with the tripling of winning combinations. Doubled wins with the wild is really helpful too. Be careful with that gamble feature though that can easily cost you good wins on the turn of a card.
