Exciting Pokies Sequel
This 5-reel game is the sequel to the original Thunderstruck, and it picks up where the first version left off. The theme of Norse mythology runs through both games, but Thunderstruck II is quite simply bigger and better than it was before, much to the satisfaction of the gods.
Like many of Microgaming’s pokies casino games, this one features the team’s trademark 243 Ways to Win Payline structure. This does away with traditional fixed paylines, and rewards you as long as the symbols in the winning combinations land on adjacent reels in any position. This means you have an incredible 243 Ways to Win every time you spin, which we know will appeal to players at Spin Palace!
Master Your Destiny and Your Gameplay
We understand that players in New Zealand are a canny and varied bunch. That’s why we try to give you as many gameplay options as possible, to allow you to formulate your own playing experiences to whatever suits you best.
First of all, you can choose to play Thunderstruck II for free or for real money. Playing for no deposit allows you to practice and perfect your strategy before you place any wagers of your own, and it’s the perfect way to relax and appreciate the finer points of the game without incurring any financial risk - coming face to face with Thor is intimidating enough on its own.
You can also choose to install our Spin Palace casino software, or to play our casino games directly through your favourite web browser.
If you’re really busy, you can activate the AutoPlay feature as well. This is a system whereby the reels spin without you needing to manually trigger them. Some people enjoy this happening while they sleep. In light of the fact that this game has a very solid theoretical RTP of 96.6%, this is very important!
Whether or not you are using the AutoPlay function, your real money betting options are 0.3 to 15.0 per spin, which most players at Spin Palace shouldn’t find too daunting a window. The Top Jackpot in the base game of 1000x your total stake, in addition to all the other potential payouts, is well worth playing for.
Thunderstruck II is really a game for the gods, and it centres on Thor and other elements of Nordic myths and legends. The scene is set in every possible way, from the reel casings that look as if they were carved of stone to the epic music in the background.
The icons on the reels are exceptionally well rendered, and include images of the Valkyrie, Valhalla itself, a Viking longboat and Loki, Odin and Thor. The lower-playing cards, which seem to be made of stone themselves, complete the line-up.
The general gameplay is of the high standard that you deserve and have come to expect from Spin Palace, and you won’t find better quality anywhere in New Zealand. This is plenty to keep you entertained but, being a game of the gods, Thunderstruck II offers you a lot more.
Bonus Symbols and Special Features
The Wild Symbol is the game logo, and is able to replace any regular reel icon to help make up winning combinations. A 2x multiplier is applied to any win that the Wild is a part of, and the randomly-triggered Wildstorm feature can be triggered at any time. This can turn as many as 5 reels completely Wild at once, to take your wins to unimagined heights.
The Scatter Symbol, in the form of Thor’s hammer, is the only image that the Wild can’t replace – what in this universe could take on Thor’s hammer? When 3 of these appear on the reels at once, the incredible Great Hall of Spins Bonus Round is triggered, which is very detailed and will involve you completely.
As you play more and more and keep triggering this Bonus Round, you’ll unlock higher and higher levels of it. Initially the only playing level available will be the Valkyrie, but eventually you will be able to choose between this and several other rounds, all with different Free Spin amounts and multiplier values, right up to Thor himself. To add even more value, the Free Spins can also be retriggered from within the Bonus Round.
Legendary Pokies Action
With all of the detailed extras and incredible playing opportunities, it makes sense that Thunderstruck II would be one of the most successful casino games in New Zealand.
Try it out for yourself and enjoy lightning fast wins, thundering bonus rounds and stormy wins! If you're not a fan, then give Twisted Circus or Cashapillar a try.
