Thunderstruck II Mega Moolah Slot (Microgaming)

Thunderstruck II Mega Moolah Slot (Microgaming)Thunderstruck II Mega Moolah borrows from the legendary Norse mythology, and it is a title that adds to the long catalogue of the popular Mega Moolah series.

Let’s check inside as we review this latest release by Microgaming:

Game Set-Up

This 5-reel jackpot slot comes with up to 243 pay lines. It is a powerful slot packed with lots of features that include Free Spins, Progressive Jackpot, Scatter Pays, Cascading Reels, Bonus Multiplier, Multiplier Wilds, and Random Wilds among many others.

Betting and Prizes

If you love progressive jackpots, then Thunderstruck II Mega Moolah is the real deal. Playing the slot is simple, and you only need $0.30 to place real money bets.

The highest amount that you can put in a single spin is $34 while the MAX wins is 8,000x. With the help of the Wild Storm feature, you get up to 5 full wild reels, which helps you to unlock 4 variants of Norse god bonus rounds.

Microgaming also offers a Mega Jackpot that comes with a seed of up to $1M which is excellent for a slot that offers medium volatility. The RTP is very low though as Microgaming has offered 92.01%

Thunderstruck II Mega Moolah Slot Features

From my experience with the game, I can say that Thunderstruck II Mega Moolah is essentially the original game associated with the popular Mega Moolah progressive jackpot series.

The gameplay here is pretty much what you would find in the original, with a small change to the graphics to suit the Norse mythology theme.

You still get up to all reels wild at random times, as well as 4 different unlockable Norse god bonus rounds.

The Wild is the feature that steps in to replace other regular symbols on the slot. On its own, it can pay up to 33.33xs your stake, for steps 5 on a line. All the wins that you trigger with the help of the wild symbol will benefit from an x2 multiplier.

Then we have the Great Hall of Spins Bonus, and to trigger it, you will need to land at least 3 Thor’s Hammer scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. With 2, 3, 4 or 5 scatters landing on the reels, you get rewards of 1x, 2x, 20x and 200x the stake, respectively.

The slot also offers a Valkyrie feature that comes with added benefits. This is what the Valkyrie feature offers:

Valkyrie (accessible from the beginning) – the feature will reward you with 10 free spins that come with an x5 multiplier. You also get an opportunity to retrigger it for an extra +10 extra spins.

Loki (you only access it after 5 triggers) – it will reward you with 15 free spins, plus a wild magic icon that will appear on the 3rd reel.

Odin (available after 10 triggers) – offers up to 20 free spins, with Odin’s raven icons triggering the slot’s Wild Raven feature.

Thor (accessible after 15 triggers) – it gives up to 25 free spins, with the Rolling Reels feature appearing on each win. The feature will remove the winning icons, and replace them with new ones. The process goes on as long as there are wins happening.

The Mega Moolah progressive jackpot is among the interesting features here. It’s a random feature with a guaranteed win to 1of the 4 available jackpots. These four have values such as:

Mini Jackpot -$10

Minor Jackpot -$100

Major Jackpot -$10,000

Mega Jackpot - $1,000,000

Theme and Design

As I have already mentioned, Thunderstruck II Mega Moolah uses a theme that draws from the Norse Mythology.

For the premium symbols, Microgaming has used images like Viking longship, Thor, Loki, Asgard, Odin, and Valkyrie. Some low-pay icons are available as well.

Conclusion

Thunderstruck II Mega Moolah is pretty awesome, and there is a lot that players can enjoy from it. The 92.01 % RTP may not be very welcoming, especially when you consider the 96.65 % that was offered by the original Thunderstruck 2.

However, as a progressive jackpot slot, many other goodies can be enjoyed by all levels of players.
