Thunderstruck Stormchaser Slot Review – Stormcraft Studios
I still remember first reading about the opening of Stormcraft Studios and reviewing the first game release, which is titled ‘Fortunium’, which is a steampunk-inspired release with impressive artwork for a first release. The studio is close with the well-known provider Microgaming, helping remaster some older and well-loved releases, including the character Agent Jane, with the release of ‘Agent Jane Blonde Max Volume‘ in early 2022. Today we are learning all about another exciting remaster, with the release of ‘Thunderstruck Stormchaser’, available to play now!
The original game is titled ‘Thunderstruck’ and was released back in the year 2004. Followed by the release of ‘Thunderstruck II’ in 2010. Both games were released by Microgaming. The game got a complete modern makeover when Stormcraft Studios released ‘Thunderstruck Wild Lightning‘ in 2021. This gave the franchise a new modern look with improved visual aspects and a whole new range of mechanics for the new times in the casino industry. Thor is back, this time with sister Freya causing chaos in Asgard. Visuals are jaw-dropping with the amount of detail put into the artwork and the depth you can see. If you haven’t already, check out the promotional videos for this game, as they are incredible, plus the very catchy soundtracks, which can be found on Spotify. Stormcraft Studios truly have a gift.
Thunderstruck Stormchaser has a setup of 5 reels by 3 rows; this includes 1,024 set ways. This slot is high variance with a set RTP of 96.10% and a max win capped at 10,200x. You can bet from £0.20 to £25.
Thunderstruck Stormchaser Symbols & Pay Table
There are 15 symbols in total; this includes 6 low paying symbols. These are represented by 9, 10, J, Q, K and A engraved stone tiles. There are also 6 premium symbols; these are represented by a tower, a Yggdrasil tree, an Asgard skyline, a throne, crows with glowing eyes and Freya. In addition to these regular symbols are a Thor Wild, a Hammer Scatter and a Multiplier symbol. The highest paying symbol is the Wild symbol, which pays 10x for 5 across a pay line. Wilds substitute for all symbols except scatters and multiplier symbols. Multiplier Symbols can award a win multiplier of 2x to 20x. The sum of the displayed multipliers is added and applied to the total win at the end of a spin.
Thunderstruck Stormchaser Features
‘Rolling Reels‘ are active on every spin; winning symbols are removed to make way for new symbols to roll in. This mechanic can award multiple consecutive wins.
The ‘Wildstorm’feature can randomly trigger during a base game spin. A Free Spin is awarded a guaranteed Wildstorm Feature, which can turn up to 5 reels Wild.
Landing 3 or more scatters during a base game spin will trigger the Free Spins selection. Or you can purchase this feature for 50x your chosen bet, awarding 3 to 5 scatters at random. Spin the wheel to be awarded a random number of Free Spins and a starting multiplier. The possible values are dependent on the number of scatters on the initial trigger, as displayed below;
Wildstorm tokens are randomly awarded at the start of the feature. Landing 3 or more scatters during a Free Spin will award 5 additional Free Spins. Collecting 12 or more Wildstorm tokens will activate the Wildstorm Feature at the end of the Free Spins feature. Every scatters that lands will award a Wildstorm token.
Overall, I think this is such an exciting release and I am sure all fans of Thunderstruck will fall in love with this newest addition to the collection. Visually this game is incredible, from the amount of detail and the hard work you can clearly see that has been put into these visual aspects. The game itself plays smoothly, animations keep you wanting to spin, with the dark clouds that cover the screen when Freya appears for the Wildstorm Feature and animations that occur with the Rolling Reels mechanic. One of the best aspects that keeps me on this game is the well produced soundtracks, Ascension is my personal favourite out of the Album. The music is catchy and matches the slot perfectly, with the action packed gameplay as you spin.
The Wildstorm Feature is very exciting, as you sit on the edge of your seat hoping one day all 5 reels will turn Wild for that incredible big win. The Free Spins feature has a bit of everything you love to see in main features. A random number of Free Spins and starting multiplier which can always be a different combination when you trigger this feature. Plus a collection mechanic with the chance to have one final spin as the Wildstorm feature. Big well done to everyone over at Stormcraft Studios for this creation, I hope you all try the game out for yourself. Also be sure to check out our exclusive casino offers.
