Norse Gods In Thunderstruck Online Slots

Of late there has been a flurry of online slots based on Norse gods. But the Thunderstruck pair of online slots on this theme released by Microgaming still remains unmatched. You can play these at Canadian online casinos like All Slots, Royal Vegas and Jackpot City.

Thunderstruck was the original slot game released in 2003. The introductory video clip featuring Thor the Norse God of Thunder was way ahead of its times. The symbols on the reels include Thor’s famous hammer, castle, horn and lightning. The low paying symbols are the usual playing card icons. Thor obviously has the place of pride. He is the wild symbol with a 2x multiplier property and also awards the highest line payouts. Five symbols on an active payline award 10,000 coins, which makes Thunderstruck a high variance slot game. Thor’s pair of rams awards the scatter payouts and triggers the free spins feature when three or more land anywhere on the reels. You will be given 15 free spins in which all payouts are tripled. The free spins can be retriggered. Players willing to take some risks can activate the standard Microgaming gamble feature after any winning spin.

Thunderstruck II was released in 2010. It introduces a larger pantheon of Norse gods and more importantly it launched a new slots engine that has become exceedingly popular. The gods are the high paying symbols. Apart from Thor they include Valkyrie the goddess of war, Loki the mischief maker and Odin the king of the gods. Asgard the home of the Norse gods and the Viking longship are the other symbols associated with the theme. The Thunderstruck II Logo is the wild symbol with a 2x multiplier property and awards the top line payouts. Thor’s hammer awards the scatter payouts.

Thunderstruck II is a 243 ways to win structure with the total bet per spin being 30 times the line bet. The line payouts are therefore lower with the top payout being 1000 coins. This video slot has low variance. The Wildstorm feature is randomly triggered and can convert up to five reels totally wild. The highlight feature is the Great Hall of Spins. Each Norse god offers his or her own set of free spins in sequence. Valkyrie awards 10 free spins with a multiplier of 5x. Loki awards 15 free spins in which random symbols become additional wilds. Odin awards 20 free spins in which random symbols become payout multipliers. Thor awards 25 free spins with the popular Microgaming Rolling Reels feature.
