The second game in the series based on the Norse Gods, this game sees Thor, Odin, Loki and Valkyrie decide your fate as you strive to gain the favour of the gods.
This game is a 5 reel game, with 243 paylines (however if you divide the total bet by the number of coins you come up with 30 paylines which suggests that 1 coin is actually bet on a group of paylines) and you can bet up to 10 coins on each payline.
There are two bonus feature when playing Thunderstruck 2. The first one is activated when you receive 3 or more of the ‘Hammer of Thor’ bonus symbol anywhere on the reels. When this happens you will be taken to the ‘Great Hall of Spins’ where you will be allowed to choose which god will grant you your complimentary spins and hence which form they will take. If you choose Valkyrie you will receive 10 complimentary spins with a 5 time multiplier. If you choose Loki you will receive 15 complimentary spins with a ‘Wild Magic’ symbol on the third reel. If you receive the Wild Magic symbol, it will randomly chance other symbols on the reels to wild symbols. If you choose Odin, you will receive 20 complimentary spins. During the complimentary spins one or both or Odin’s ravens may fly down and add a multiplier to random symbol, which affects any spins utilising that symbol. Finally if you choose Thor, you will receive 25 complimentary spins. During these free spin, any time you hit a winning payline, after you’ve been paid the winning symbols explode allowing new symbols to drop in from the top. If the new symbols form a second winning payline the process is repeated except that each time a new payline is formed the multiplier for the next win is moved up according to the bar at the top of the reels.
The second bonus feature is called ‘Wild Storm’ and is activated randomly during the game. During Wild Storm feature Thor appears and turns up to five reels into stacked and held wild symbols!
