Thunderstruck Wild Lightning Slot Review

It’s been 11 whole years since we last saw Thor on the reels through the Thunderstruck online slots series. Consistently very successful, it was a surprise that the slots franchise went on such a long hiatus as it was a frequently requested title from players frequenting their favourite online casino sites. However, your calls have been heard, because we now have Thunderstruck Wild Lightning to add to the ranks and make the most of a feature/s that can see you claim up to 200 free spins. In fact, a bonus feature could strike at any time to see you receive generous gifts from the great god Thor. Let’s see what goods lie in wait.

Microgaming is a studio that has been around since the inception of online casino games, so their best online slot games through the years are generally very well-known. Thunderstruck, as well as its sequel Thunderstruck II were such games and are still popular to this day. A slight difference with Thunderstruck Wild Lightning is that the slot wasn’t released through Microgaming but rather one of its sub-studios called Stormcraft. Why did they do this? We have no idea, but the graphics are definitely an upgrade while there’s still all the Norse Gods scenery you know and love. The mobile compatibility is second to none, while at times, the visuals have the look of a console game and not a title created by a casino software studio.

Compared to the last release, which was Thunderstruck II, Thunderstruck Wild Lightning doesn’t have 243 paylines but only 40. However, there is a much bigger maximum payout in 15,000x your bet. The last release only had 8,000x, so as you can see, things are definitely bigger and better. The wagering window is still very much the same, with the maximum wager players can place being £16 per spin. The minimum bet has been lowered, likely to accommodate the more conservative players, and lies at a very low 20p per spin. The volatility is still on the high side here so as to make wins land with the force of Thor’s hammer.

Feature Symbols

Thunderstruck Wild Lightning Featured Symbol - partycasino-canada

It’s not very often that this happens when studios release sequels to slots online, but the symbols of Thunderstruck Wild Lightning have been given a facelift. The change isn’t drastic, as the Viking feel is still the same, but it is a breath of fresh Scandinavian air. The lower paying icons are still 9, 10, J, Q, K and A, but the design has been updated with a much sharper look. However, the medium paying symbols are entirely different, with all of them now being mysterious orbs of colour in other locations, with the fiery orb carrying the highest value.

In previous Thunderstruck’s Thor was always the highest paying symbol, which he still is in Thunderstruck Wild Lightning, but now he also acts as the wild symbol. Interestingly, he almost resembles Ragnar from the series Vikings that also had a slot themed on it. The wild will substitute all icons to create winning lines. There’s also a scatter which carries the same value as the wild.
