Thunderstruck II Slot

thunderstruck 2Microgaming's eagerly anticipated Thunderstruck II slot game arrived in 2010. It was eagerly anticipated because the original Thunderstruck slot has historically been their all-time most popular slot game and many of us expected more of the same. But they surprised us with Thunderstruck II which turned out to be different in so many ways. But thankfully, it also turned out to be a damn good slot game too.

The symbology is similar-ish as was to be expected although the graphic symbols are different and the sound system had a major upgrade. The main difference was in the bonus feature. Or should I say "features" of which there are 4, all of them being free spin bonuses. In fact there are 5 because there is also a randomly awarded "Wildstorm" feature which turns anywhere between 1 and all 5 reels wild. Never seen all 5 - the most I have gotten is 3 but for some decent wins!

The four bonus features vary from 10 spins at 5x to 25 spins with a random multiplier. You have to unlock these by playing but sensibly, the first two features in the chain are the best ones IMO. The 10 spins at 5x is first in line and available from the off and is still my favourite of the 4 despite having them all unlocked at 32Red Casino now. The second feature gives 15 free spins with extra wild symbols, randomly awarded and that too is a favourite. The other two features are average although if you like the IGT Tumbling Reels mechanism found in slots like Davinci Diamonds then the 4th feature should appeal as it awards 25 free spins with the same concept.

To be fair, no matter which feature you choose (and choose you do) they all pay similarly - I don't think there is an advantage of one over another. Try them all out on our free Thunderstruck II game. The feature choice is triggered when you get 3 or more bonus symbols anywhere in view and happens with reasonable regularity.

thunderstruck 2 slot machineNo doubt that I still prefer the original Thunderstruck slot but Thunderstruck II isn't far behind on my list and is an improvement on recent slots like Hellboy and Hitman which, while still popular, never really grabbed me like Thunderstruck did. Very entertaining and with a lower volatility than the original game meaning it's harder to walk away with a mega-win on Thunderstruck II but easier to walk away with a small profit if you set your cashout targets lower.

In 2011, Microgaming also released a game called "Immortal Romance" that is essentially the same engine as Thunderstruck 2 with features you have to unlock. It's available at the Microgaming casinos that have Thunderstruck 2 here at Slots.org.uk which include 32Red, Roxy Palace and Ladbrokes. As I write, Immortal Romance isn't available at Virgin Casino although that might change by the time you read this.


You can play Thunderstruck II slots at the following safe casinos:


Wombat (Microgaming, NetEnt, NextGen, Blueprint, ELK, Eyecon, Fugaso, JustFortheWin, ScientificGames, Thunderkick) - We like the range of games here, and the site has been well designed so that they are easy to browse through. Try the NetEnt games like the Guns ´n Roses slot on your mobile- we reckon its better than playing it on a desktop!


Hippodrome (Microgaming) - I always like to see well-renowned land-based casinos set up online which is exactly what the Hippodrome in London's Leicester Square have done but how does the online casino measure up to their land-based offering?


Monkey (Microgaming, NetEnt, NextGen, Blueprint, ELK, Eyecon, Fugaso, JustFortheWin, ScientificGames, Thunderkick) - We love the look of the site and the search functionality. it's easy and quick to find what you are looking for. Try the ELK games like the Wild Toro and Electric Sam. We enjoyed the Thunderkick and Blueprint Games like Ted and Esqueleto Explosivo too.
