Thunderstruck II Remastered Online Slot
Back in the mid-90s, when the first online casino in the world was established, Microgaming was the sole provider of its gaming catalogue. What happened then is that some titles continued to be so popular even in the new millennium, that their creators decided to remaster them for modern audiences. One such example is the classic Thunderstruck II, a game that was already a ‘sequel’ to the incredibly popular Thunderstruck.
What you now have is the same beloved online slots game, remastered not only for modern audiences, but modern devices, too. Given that online casinos have been around for way longer than the mobile technology we have come to know and love today, it only makes sense that games created some decades ago would not be up to scratch or even compatible with mobile platforms. So, remastering them gives players the opportunity to explore and enjoy a range of classics that have stood the test of time, which is exactly the case in point when it comes to the topic of this review. Below, we highlight some of the key features that have made Thunderstruck II such a hit, and why it continues to be one, in Thunderstruck II Remastered.
Those who have already played, or who are at least familiar with the original Thunderstruck II online and mobile casino game will find that very little has changed in Thunderstruck II Remastered – essentially, the game is the same, but has been given an overhaul on the backend to run smoothly on modern platforms. The playing grid is comprised of 5 reels, 3 rows and a 243 ways-to-win function. This means that you won’t have to land matching symbol combinations on specific paylines in order to trigger a payout, but rather anywhere on the screen as long as they are adjacent (next to one another).
While the betting range of this game may seem somewhat modest (starting from 0.30 credits per bet and maxing out at just 15), there are enough special features to be enjoyed by even the highest of rollers, especially the various Free Spins options, which we will delve into below. As a high volatility game, payouts on Thunderstruck II Remastered can be expected to be quite sparse, but when it does pay out, one can generally expect the increments to be far more impressive than on low or medium volatility games.
Symbols And Features
As a game based on Norse mythology, it should come as no surprise that the characters you will encounter on the symbol set of Thunderstruck II Remastered include a host of gods and goddesses from the Norse pantheon, including Loki, Odin, Thor and a Valkyrie (not a goddess, per se, but an integral part of Norse myth, in which these winged maidens carry the souls of fallen soldiers to Valhalla). You will also encounter a symbol showing Asgard, the home of the gods, and a Viking longship. The card royal symbols are present, too, in the form of 9, 10, J, Q, K and A, all of which have been designed to suit the overall look and feel of the game.
The game name logo symbol is Wild, which means that it can take the place of others (except the Scatter) to help you hit potentially paying combinations. What’s more, any wins incurred as a result of Wilds will be doubled. Should the randomly triggered Wildstorm Feature trigger, it can turn up to 5 reels completely Wild for a limited time.
Thor’s Hammer is the Scatter symbol, and landing 3 of it will grant you access to the Great Hall of Spins, where there are 4 different Free Spins rounds to be chosen from, with each one unlocking sequentially as you continue to make use of them. Below, we list the 4 different Free Spins options in order of their appearance:
Valkyrie: 10 Free Spins with all wins multiplied by 5x
- Loki: 15 Free Spins with Wild Magic feature (up to 15 random symbols turned into Wild Magic symbols)
- Odin: 20 Free Spins with Wild Raven feature (transforms up to 2 symbols Wild with a 2x or 3x Multiplier)
- Thor: 25 Free Spins with Rolling Reels™, which award a Multiplier Trail up to 5x
All in all, Thunderstruck II Remastered is an excellent addition to the catalogue of casino games available to play at Ruby Fortune.
