After the successful period of the original Thunderstruck there is also a sequel. Thunderstruck II can also be played on mobile devices such as the smartphone and tablet. This slot game from Quickfire by Microgaming is just like its predecessor, entirely in the style of Norse mythology. We see images of the gods Thor, Valkyris Loki and Odin. The Norse gods are also visible as a symbol in this slot. Also there are symbols of the hammer of Thor, a Viking ship and a flying city. The overall style and buttons fit well with the mysterious theme of this slot. More important are the bonus features, Thunderstruck II has quite a few. For example Wilds and stacked Wild symbols, even better with 3, 4 or 5 bonus symbols you end up in the Great Hall of Spins. Depending on the number of times you activate this bonus feature, you can choose from various Norse gods. Each god represents a certain number of free spins and a special bonus feature.
For a good reason Thunderstruck is a all-time favorite among many online slots players. This sequel of the game is just right.. There is mysterious classical music and in the background we see the pictures and symbols of Norwegian mythological gods. Once we win a prize the pace of the music goes up and we hear thunderstorms. This slot game offers 5 reels and 243 paylines. Above the symbols we see a handy information screen that lists the prizes we won and how we can activate the bonus features.
The developer Quickfire (Microgaming) has done his best to fit the settings well into the theme. You have the ability to set the coin value, and vary between 0.01, 0.02 and 0.05. Also you can set the number of coins you want to bet at the same time between 1 up to 10. We would rather see a button where you change the complete bet in regular currency. The bet settings used in Thunderstruck II may be a bit confusion for some slots players. One advantage is that you can vary your bet in a lot of different ways and therefore always find a bet that suits your casino budget. In small characters you can find a number of other settings. With the option Game Play Settings you can check the Quickspin option, this makes for a faster gameplay. With the Sound Settings you can turn off the sound. Beneath that there is the option Balance Bet and Win Values. Here you can check if you want to show the numbers in this slot as coins or credits. Do you like numbers? Click on the link Statistics.

Thunderstruck II bonus features
Thunderstruck II is really packed with bonus features, let’s have a closer look. First you have the Wild symbol with the logo image. This Wild counts for any other symbol except the bonus symbol. Fear not while playing this slot, random lightning can strike caused by the Wildstorm feature. This is a stacked Wild symbol that can occupy 1 up to 5 reels. It is so much easier to make a winning combination!
Now lets have a look at the most lucrative bonus round: The Great Hall of Spins. When you spin 3, 4 or 5 symbols that display the hammer of Thor you end up in the bonus round. Depending on the number of times you already activated this bonus round you can choose from the Norse gods Valkyrie, Loki, Odin and Thor. Valkyrie is immediately available from the first time you activated this feature. If you choose her, you will receive 10 free spins, all wins are multiplied by a factor of 5! When you activated this bonus feature 5 times you can choose Loki. You will receive 15 free spins, on the 3rd reel you can spin the Wild Magic symbol. This symbol can replace other symbols. With 2, 4 or 5 bonus symbols you get 1, 2, 3 or 4 additional free spins! If you manage to end up 10 times in the bonus round, you can choose the Norse god Odin. Get 20 free spins and the Wild Raven feature. Odin’s ravens can randomly change symbols into the Multipliers 2x and 3x. If both ravens land you will receive a multiplier of 6x. The most famous is of course the Norse god Thor. He is also your best choice in The Great Hall of Spins, you must first activate the bonus feature 15x. Thor rewards you with 25 free spins.
