Thunderstruck Slot

Thunderstruck SlotThe Thunderstruck Slot was developed and released by Microgaming some eight years ago, back in 2004, but for some reason has lost none of it’s allure or appeal.

Thunderstruck in comparison to the plethora of slot games being released what seems weekly now, is unable to hold a candle to them in terms of graphics, looks and sound effects.

Yet Thunderstruck is still one of the most popular slots amongst patrons of online casinos.

Indeed when talking to a number of operators of casinos which use Microgaming’s casino software, they will readily say that the original Thunderstruck slot is one of their most played games, out of a library in excess in most cases of 400 plus games on offer.

Thunderstruck and it’s much acclaimed sequel Thunderstruck 2 is the reason why I felt compelled to setup Thunderstruck Slots, to be able share with visitors to the site my passion for this great online slot game and it’s successor. Thunderstruck is built around the Greek God Thor, yet Thor is not the only Greek God used as an inspiration for a slot machine, with his father being immortalised in the Zeus Slots made famous by WMS.

Thunderstruck is a 9 reel online slot which features a scatter symbol in the form of a Ram, whereby hitting three or more scatters triggers the free spins bonus round.

The bonus round provides players with a great opportunity to boost their bankroll, with all wins hit during the free spin bonus round being worth treble their value.

In addition to this, it is also possible to retrigger the free spins round whilst in play, by once again hitting three or more Rams in a single spin.

As a result Thunderstruck can make players a handsome return. As well as the Ram Scatter symbol, Thunderstruck also features a Wild Symbol in the form of Thor. Thor substitutes all symbols apart from the Scatter symbol.

Finally, Thunderstruck also incorporates a gamble feature, where upon hitting any win, you have the option to double your win, by picking either a black or red playing card. This is something that I personally refrain from doing myself, but is popular with some players and also mimics the facility found on slot machines at land based casinos.

The reason behind Thunderstruck’s popularity and longevity so long after it was released is purely down to the fact that it is an extremely fun slot to play, with great gameplay and potential good wins, especially if Thor himself is smiling down on you. If you have never played Thunderstruck before, then you should try it out for free on our dedicated Thunderstruck FreePlay page.
