Why play Thunderstruck II?
Thunderstruck II probably bears little resemblance to other slot machine games you may have
played in online Canadian casinos. For starters, this machine dispenses with traditional
paylines completely. Instead, a winning combination occurs anytime
the same symbols appear on consecutive reels from left to right regardless of their position
on each reel.
This amazing innovation gives you many more chances to win, in fact 243 different ways!
Without traditional paylines, it becomes a lot easier to hit five like symbols in a row and
win a fixed jackpot although, admittedly, these jackpots are not
But what about the inevitable spins that come up empty? They are not as frustrating as you
think as you watch your playing bankroll climb back up again with free spins, multiplied
winnings, and other nifty surprises that the Thunderstruck II gods
In other words, a good part of the appeal of Thunderstruck II is that you can always expect
the unexpected. Even when there seems to be temporary lull in the action, it won't last
long. Another clap of thunder, accompanied by a louder roar from
you when you see what you just won, is looming on the horizon. Forget about dozing off
anytime soon playing this game!
The opening clip to Thunderstruck II will introduce you to the important features of the
game and its main characters, the four gods from Norse mythology: Valkyrie, Loki, Odin, and
Thor. The earlier version of the game included just one god, Thor.
The addition of three more, along with their trademark weapons and accoutrements, of course,
means more symbols on the reels and more winning combinations.
When you have the power of Norse gods on your side, every spin packs the power of a thunderbolt.
With 243 ways to win and a massive 2.4 million coin jackpot, thunder could strike at any moment.
Another game change is that the Thunderstruck II logo replaces Thor as the wild symbol and Thor's
hammer replaces rams as the scatter symbol. Also new to Thunderstruck II are some exciting additions
to the bonus game, which now includes the Great
Hall of Spins. Finally, as if all that is not enough, you may get to experience a "wildstorm."
You can play Thunderstruck II for free or for real money, your choice. The machine accepts either 1
cent or 5 cent coins, with the minimum bet per spin being 30 cents and the maximum being 300 five
cent coins, orC$15. However, some casinos have
machines that also take a 25 cent coin with a maximum wager ofC$75.
Free Spins From the Slots Gods
There is no multimillion dollar progressive jackpot in Thunderstruck II, and the various
fixed jackpots for 5 of a kind on all 5 reels won't make you rich either. For example, the
top fixed jackpot, for five Thunderstruck II logo symbols, is only
1,000 coins. The jackpots associated with the other symbols are even smaller. The good news
is that there are other ways of winning big in this game, making the use of the term
"jackpot" somewhat of a misnomer.
The Thunderstruck II logo is the game's wild symbol. Its appearance on a spin, other than on
all 5 reels simultaneously, has the potential not only to turn losing symbols into winning
"wilds," but to double the amount of your win in the process.
Thor's hammer is the scatter symbol, and three or more admits you to the Great Hall of Spins
for the bonus game. The more often you enter, the more free spins and opportunities for
multiplied wins you are awarded.
The first four times, Valkyrie gives you 10 free spins with 5x multiplied winnings. The 5th
through 9th time, Loki gives you 15 free spins along with the "wild magic" feature, with the
potential to make some symbols of the third reel "wild." The
10th through 14th time, Odin offers 20 spins along with the "wild raven" feature,
potentially giving you up to 6x multiplied winnings.
Lastly, if you gain access to the Great Hall of Spins 15 or more times, you are greeted by
Thor, the god of thunder himself, showering you with 25 free spins. Thor also activates the
"rolling reels" feature, capable of providing consecutive wins,
each multiplied by an increasing amount, up to 5x.

Meanwhile, the epic quality graphics, animations, and sound effects that accompany all this activity
almost have you fooled into thinking you are not in front of your computer, but in a movie theater.
Tearing yourself away will be tough, but when
you do log off, one consolation is that you won't lose your place in the bonus game. When you resume
playing, you can simply pick up where you left off.
As a final note, ordinarily, the last thing you want is to be struck by thunder and lightning, but
this is a game where you would love to have it happen. Nothing you do or don't do will increase the
probability since the rare event is triggered
randomly. But if, all of the sudden, the music changes dramatically, ominous looking clouds form,
and then, out of nowhere, Thor emerges as big as life while thunder and lightning erupt together,
You could be on the cusp of a "wildstorm." How much you win depends on how many of the five reels
turn wild. If the whole machine goes wild, 2,430,000 coins are yours!
