Try the 243 ways to win at Thunderstruck II slot

Thunderstruck II Slot is a non-progressive 5-reel machine with 243 paylines by Microgaming. It has a scatter and wild symbol, multiplier and free spins. The maximum jackpot is $500. Inspired by the god of thunder, Thor, it has become a big hit among players and caused Microgaming to spawn a sequel. Wildstorms and a 5-level bonus round of free spins are also featured. It packs in all the popular Thor characters and gives people the possibility of winning as much as 10,000 coins.

Those who know about the famous thunder god, either on comics or on film, will quickly identify the symbols and graphics in Thunderstruck II Slot. Loki, Valkyrie, Raven and Odin appear on the title's reels together with Thor. They present themselves complete with matching outfit, weapons and powers. A mellow track is playing on the background that provides an additional thrill to the game, like something big is coming your way. All these animations and sound effects combined with the character symbols make this game among the top ones these days.

As noted earlier, there are 243 ways by which players can win so it can be expected that bet requirements are high. Fortunately, the exact opposite happens as wagers range from $0.30 to $15 each spin. Adjusting how many lines can be used is not allowed but one can use as many as 10 coins. For those who wish to activate the autoplay, they can select the expert mode, while those who wish to play on their own should choose the regular mode.

The title's logo can substitute the other symbols except the hammer bonus. Any win received with this logo will be doubled on free and regular spins. Benefits will also be earned from the wildstorm that's triggered randomly. This can cause wilds to occupy as much as five reels and result to huge payouts. When at least three hammer symbols appear, you will receive the Great Hall of Spins. The deeper you get into the hall, the more spins and multipliers will you earn. After 15 visits into this hall, you will now get the Thor Spins - that's 25 complimentary spins with successive wins and a 5x multiplier.

After 2 successful movie franchises, now is the prime time for Thor-inspired games. Although Thunderstruck II Slot is in no way related to Marvel, the quality is up to its standards.
