Thunderstruck® Wild Lightning Slot

The original Thunderstruck proved such a massive hit for software provider Microgaming that it’s no surprise it resulted in an equally successful sequel, Thunderstruck II. Now, Stormcraft Studios have collaborated with Microgaming to create another entry in the wildly popular series, called Thunderstruck® Wild Lightning.

A welcome addition to the exciting world of online slots at Royal Vegas Online Casino Canada, Thunderstruck® Wild Lightning transports us back to the world of Norse legends – where the new ascended ruler of Asgard, Thor, god of lightning and thunder, is embarking on an epic quest to retrieve the missing World Stones.

With substituting Wilds, feature-activating Scatters, 5 x Free Spin destinations, and a potential jackpot prize of 15 000x in the Link&Win™ bonus feature, Thunderstruck® Wild Lightning has plenty to offer. Plus, it looks and sounds great whether you’re playing on PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone.

Let’s take a closer look.

Theme, Basics And Symbols

A Norse mythology-inspired online slot, Thunderstruck® Wild Lightning is played across 5 reels, 3 rows, and 40 fixed paylines – and is available to enjoy on desktop as well as at our mobile casino, without any compromise in quality. Here, we join Thor on his quest to unlock and explore undiscovered realms like Nidavellir, Alfheim, Svaralfheim, Vanaheim, and Jotunheim.

Realistic 3D graphics and innovative game mechanics take this iconic series to the next level – while complimenting the game’s captivating storyline along with original music compositions and a selection of 5 tracks available in the base game for an even more customised gaming experience.

A high volatility slot, Thunderstruck® Wild Lightning has a payout percentage of 96.10% and a total hit frequency rate of 22.92%. The minimum bet size is 0.20 credits per spin, and the maximum is 16.00 credits per spin.

As for the symbols, these include the standard playing card royals – A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9 – which are designed in the style of Nordic stone carvings. The mighty Thor acts as the Wild symbol – able to substitute for other symbols and stack over entire reels. The only symbols he cannot replace are the Scatter and Thunderball symbols. The Scatter is represented by Thor’s hammer and is the key to activating the coveted Free Spins feature.

Enthralling Bonus Features

When it comes to casino games, the features often play an important role – with Thunderstruck® Wild Lightning being no exception.

Let’s start with the electrifying Link&Win™ feature, which is triggered by landing 6 or more electric blue Thunderball symbols in the base game. Once in play, Thor sets about doubling the reel configuration to 5x8 – with the extra four rows unlocking, once enough Thunderball symbols have been accrued. When Thunderball symbols land, they lock into position and reset the spins to 3 so you can continue playing. What’s more, cash and jackpot prizes increase in value as rows are unlocked.

To make winning the 15 000x Mega Jackpot a possibility, all locked rows must be opened and all positions on the reels filled with Thunderball symbols. Other potential but smaller jackpots include the Major (150x the total bet), the Minor (50x the total bet), and the Mini (25x the total bet).

By landing 3 or more of the Scatter Hammer symbols you’ll activate the Free Spins Selection screen where 5 lost realms are presented, and the Wild Lightning action takes place. Essentially, four of the five Free Spins features are successively unlocked on each activation – in the process, you’ll be awarded Wild Multipliers, the size of which differs according to the realm. When it comes to the Wild Lightning feature, it’s able to create several Wild Reels that serve to potentially boost winnings. Furthermore, there is the opportunity to retrigger the Free Spins.

Finally, we have the epic Wild Storm feature, which is synonymous with the Thunderstruck® series. Located in the darkly mysterious realm of Svartalfheim, entry is only granted by collecting tokens in the base game. Here, Thor summons lightning bolts from his hammer to transform up to 5 reels Wild on a single spin.
