Thunderstruck Wild Lightning Slot Review – Stromcraft Studios / Microgaming
It has been a while since my last Stormcarft Studios / Microgaming slot review. The most recent was for the game titled ‘Odin’s Riches‘, which has a max win capped at 5,000x and a range of mini-features. Today we are learning all about an exciting game sequel. Which is titled ‘Thunderstruck Wild Lightning’, which is available to play now across all sites.
The original ‘Thunderstruck’ game was released all the way back in 2004. The second game ‘Thunderstruck II’ released back in 2010, which is more well known by casino players. All of these games are based on the Norse mythology theme, which is a very popular pick within the casino industry. This new release shows us new modern visual aspects and detailed artwork.
Thunderstruck Wild Lightning has a setup of 5 reels by 4 rows, this includes 40 set pay lines. This slot is high variance with a set RTP of 96.10% and a max win capped at 15,000x. You can bet from £0.20 – £16.
Thunderstruck Wild Lightning Pay Table & Symbols
There are 14 symbols in total, this includes 6 low-paying symbols. These are represented by 9, 10, J, Q, K, and A. There are also 5 premium symbols, these are represented by purple, blue, green, yellow, and red gems/orbs. In addition to these regular symbols is wild, hammer scatters, and Thunderball symbols. The highest paying symbol is the wild symbol, which pays 200x for 5 across a pay line. Wild symbols multiply wins by 2x or 5x in the base game and can be stacked. This symbol substitutes for all symbols except scatter and Thunderball symbols. Thunderball symbols award cash prizes or jackpot prizes during the Link&Win feature.
Thunderstruck Wild Lightning Features
Landing 6 or more Thunderball symbols will trigger the ‘Link&Win Feature’. Additional rows are unlocked by landing these symbols. Landing 15, 20, 25, and 30 symbols will unlock rows 5, 6, 7, and 8. Thunderballs from the trigger will remain in place, 3 spins are awarded and all symbols that land remains until the end of the feature. Spins are reset to 3 when a Thunderball lands, this will continue until all spins are used or all positions are filled.
Landing 3 or more scatter symbols will trigger the ‘Free Spins Selection’. Any unlocked features can be selected. Selections are;
Jotunheim Free Spins (15 Free Spins) – Wild Win Multiplier of 2x, 3x, or 5x. Unlocked on the 1st Free Spins trigger.
Vanaheim Free Spins (12 Free Spins) – Wild win multiplier of 2x, 4x, or 6x. Unlocked after 5 Free Spins triggers.
Alfheim Free Spins (9 Free Spins) – Wild Win Multiplier of 3x, 5x, or 8x. Unlocked after 10 Free Spins triggers.
Nidavellir Free Spins (6 Free Spins) – Wild Win Multiplier of 5x, 8x, or 12x. Unlocked after 15 Free Spins triggers.
Svartalfheim Free Spins – A Free Spins are awarded a guaranteed Wildstorm feature. Wildstorm can turn up to 5 reels wild. Collect 20 scatter pairs in the base game to unlock this feature for the next Free Spins selection.
Landing a wild symbol anywhere on reels 2, 3, and 4 will trigger this feature during Free spins. The triggering wild activates that symbol position. When another wild lands in that position it expands to fill the reel and is wild for that spin.
Overall, I think this slot is a well-made game sequel and has so much potential with these new exciting features. With a max win capped at 15,000x and a Free Spins feature with 5 possible picks. Be sure to try out the game for yourself on release and check out our exclusive casino offers.
