If you’ve played slots before, you’ll almost certainly know of Thunderstruck, as it’s one of the best loved and most successful slots of all time. While the graphics might now look slightly dated – after all, this slot was created in 2004 – the gameplay still holds up well, and the top prize of 100,000 coins is enough to give most other slots a run for their money.
This is really a slot for the purists though – those who appreciate the ways in which slots have developed over time. If you’re used to the snazzy graphics and huge numbers of features found at modern slots from companies such as BetSoft, you’ll probably feel slightly disappointed by the action at Thunderstruck.
The gameplay at Thunderstruck is pretty rudimentary, as you’d expect from a slot of its age. It plays pretty quickly though, meaning that you can get in plenty of spins in a session. It has five reels and 9 paylines in total, and this small number of paylines means that it’s not at all confusing to play. It also has a Gamble feature, but it’s best avoided, as with all Gamble features.
The wild symbol at this slot is represented by Thor himself, and it isn’t just a normal wild symbol. This is because it will double the size of your prize whenever it’s used to complete a winning combination. It also appears on all of the reels, giving you a better chance of spinning it into view.
The main bonus round at this slot comes when you manage to spin in three or more of the rams anywhere on the reels. When you do, you’ll be given 15 free spins, all of which will have their wins will be tripled. You’ll also win a prize for initially spinning in the rams on the reels, as they are this slot’s scatter symbol.
Thunderstruck is certainly a simple slot, yet it is well-deserving of its place among the great names. Its appeal is fading slightly though, thanks to the advent of new slots with bigger and better features, however the jackpot is still certainly one that is well worth winning.
