Thunderstruck was one of the more popular Microgaming titles from their early releases, so it made sense for them to release a sequel, to boost the graphics, to introduce some modern elements and to improve the player experience overall.
Thunderstruck II is the result of those improvements, a game you can play on Jackpot City and other top online casinos.
The graphics here are not quite 3D, but they are as close as you will get and they are still very nice to look at. This is a 243 payline pokie, and one that comes with a sizeable base game jackpot of 10,000 coins, the value of which depends on your stake.
Thunderstruck II employs a Nordic God theme, a carryover from the original game, and one that works much better with the improved graphics and layout. Many Gods appear as symbols and are animated when they are landed in a payline.
Thunderstruck II is played with coins, which you can set the value for yourself. These coins cost between $0.01 and $0.05 each, and you can play anywhere from 1 to 10 coins per spin.
The main bonus round on the Thunderstruck II pokie is a free spins round, and one where you can choose from a number of options. These include Valkyrie, where you will be given 10 free spins and a 5x multiplier; Loki, where you will be given 15 free spins and the Wild Magic Feature; Odin, which comes with 20 free spins and a similar feature; and Thor, which comes with 25 free spins and a Rolling Reels feature.
You can only actually choose when all of these rounds are unlocked, and you need to trigger this bonus round many times in order for that to happen. There isn’t much choice either, as you really shouldn’t be opting for anything but the Thor feature, which is by far the best.
A very successful follow-up to an equally successful pokie.
