Thunderstruck Wild Lightning Slot (Microgaming)

Thunderstruck Wild Lightning Slot (Microgaming)Thunderstruck Wild Lightning joins the long list of slots that Microgaming has developed in 2021.

Microgaming has partnered with Stormcraft Studios, and they have based it on Viking legends as well as the deities.

Over the years, the Thunderstruck series has gained massive popularity, and it doesn’t look like it’s stopping any time soon,

Join me as we explore this new title in the review below:

Game Set-Up

5 reels, with 40 active paylines is what the developers have gone with here. For its features, I got to see things like 5 versions of free spins, and huge multipliers that go up to 12x.

Betting and Prizes

A betting range of between $0.20 and $16 is what you get to work with here, which is not a very pleasant figure for real money gamers, and especially the high rollers.

However, there is a Mega Jackpot that you can trigger, and it comes at a fixed value of 15,000x the stake. There are also smaller jackpots of Major at 150x, Minor at 50x, and a Mini at 25x the stake.

Such high potential means just one thing, high volatility! Yes, Thunderstruck Wild is a very volatile slot, but the two developers have tried to keep things calm by giving it a decent RTP of 96.10%.

Thunderstruck Wild Lightning Features

Wilds that are accompanied by multipliers have become quite popular, and this is mainly due to the potential that they give a slot. In this game, you get up to 5x multipliers that will come via Thor wilds landing on reels 2-4.

Mjolnir, which is also Thor’s Hammer, will serve as the scatter symbol, and it is the feature that I used to access the free spins.

You will need between 3 and 5 Hammers, and in return, the slot will pay you up to 200x the stake. From there, you can pick one of the five versions of free spins, and this depends on the volatility that you want:

Jotunheim: offers 15 free rounds, with wild multipliers coming at between 2x to 5x. The top jackpot is 2,000x the stake.

Vanaheim: offers up to 12 free rounds, and these come with 2x-6x wild multipliers. You can land wins of up to 2,125x your stake.

Alfheim: offers 9 free spins with wild multipliers of between 3x and 8x. Wins of 3,250x the stake is quite possible.

Nidavellir: offers 6 free rounds, and these have a 5x to 12x wild multiplier, while possible wins are 3,500x the stake.

Svartalfheim: this version offers1 free spin, but it also comes with an extra feature known as Wildstorm. This is where multiple reels are transformed into full wild, and you can get wins of up to 8,000x the stake.

Another great feature on this slot is the Link & Win. It can be activated using special Thunderball scatters, and to do so, I needed 6+ required of such. The result was 3 respins landing on a new screen. If new icons land, you get a respins reset.

Theme & Design

The design is very modern, but the theme is not. You get to work with Thor and his popular hammer (Mjolnir) as part of the symbols.

Other symbols are represented by various stones coloured in green, orange, purple, and yellow. The rune stones serve as the lower-paying icons.

Conclusion

Thunderstruck Wild Lightning is a very good slot machine, and I had a wonderful time playing it.

It offers great features that boost its payout potential and considering that you can pick the level of volatility, it’s a slot suitable for all levels of players.
