Thunderstruck® Wild Lightning Online Slot
First, there was the original Thunderstruck online slots game, which proved to be so popular that its creator, Microgaming, saw fit to create a sequel: Thunderstruck II, which was later remastered for modern audiences and mobile devices. While both of these games continue to be enjoyed by players around the world, Microgaming saw yet another gap in the market for something fans would love: Thunderstruck® Wild Lightning. With massively improved graphics and something of a thematic overhaul, Thunderstruck® Wild Lightning looks and plays like nothing you’ve ever tried before, whether or not you were a fan of the original games.
Thunderstruck® Wild Lightning is a visual feast, and one that is sure to captivate your attention and imagination from the very first spin. In our in-depth review, we take a close look at everything you can expect to find and enjoy across the reels of this number, which happens to be available to play at Ruby Fortune Online Casino Canada.
Thunderstruck® Wild Lightning plays out over a grid comprised of 5 reels, 4 rows and 40 fixed paylines. The right-hand side of the reels is occupied by a handsome rendition of Thor himself, watching you as you play. As a high volatility game, you can expect payouts on this title to be quite decent, even if they occur less frequently than on low or medium volatility games, where the latter two may pay out more regularly, but in smaller increments.
While the betting range of Thunderstruck® Wild Lightning is surprisingly modest, starting from as little as 0.20 credits per spin and maxing out at 16.00, the game has enough special features to appeal to even the highest of rollers out there. These include varied Free Spins rounds, a Link&Win™ feature and even some potential jackpots – all of which we will discuss in more detail in a moment. As a more recent online and mobile casino game than its counterparts, Thunderstruck® Wild Lightning runs smoothly even on smaller screens, with no compromise in gameplay or graphical quality. Just be sure to have a stable Internet connection for the best playing experience.
Symbols And Features
The symbols you will meet on the reels of Thunderstruck® Wild Lightning are quite a bit more abstract than the previous two titles in the series, and instead of seeing gods or goddesses from the Norse pantheon, you will instead see various landmarks or totems from some of the Norse realms, including Jotunheim (home of the giants), Vanaheim (home of the Vanir gods), Alfheim (home of the elves), Svartalfheim (home of the dark elves) and Nidavellir (home of the dwarves). Each of these realms will feature in the Free Spins rounds, too, but we will discuss these soon. Apart from the aforementioned symbols, there are runic representations of the A, K, Q, J, 9 and 10 symbols and Thor, who is Wild and can appear stacked in the base game. He can also take the place of other symbols except the Scatter (his hammer) or the Thunderball symbols.
Landing 6 or more of the Thunderball symbols will trigger the Link&Win™ feature, and additional rows have the potential to be unlocked. Any Thunderball symbols involved in triggering the round will remain in place for the feature, while the reels will spin 3 times. Landing additional Thunderball symbols will see these 3 spins retriggered. Some of these symbols will have a jackpot name on them (Mini, Minor or Major), and at the end of such a round, the relevant prize amounts will be paid out, with the Mega jackpot being possible for landing Thunderball symbols on every position on the grid.
Landing 3 or more of the Thor’s Hammer Scatter will trigger a round of Free Spins, with different options being unlocked as you continue to trigger such rounds. While all of the rounds are simply a combination of different Free Spins with various Multipliers attached, it is the Svartalfeim Free Spins round that comes with the Wildstorm feature, which has the power to turn up to 5 reels completely Wild. The titular Wild Lightning feature can be triggered by landing a Wild symbol anywhere on reels 2, 3 or 4, and will see that symbol position expand across the whole reel if you land another Wild in the same spot.
All in all, as you can see, even with a maximum bet value of 16.00 credits per spin, Thunderstruck® Wild Lightning has enough special features to keep you entertained from start to finish.
