How to Play Thunderstruck

Selecting the game from the slot menu will present you with a small video presentation of Thor appearing in a flash of lightening. Then, the slot screen will load and you will need to choose one of the stake levels. The Thunderstruck slot machine wagers include;  0.01, 0.02, 0.05, 0.10, 0.20, 0.25 and 0.50. You can then opt to play up to five coins per line. Once your wager requirements are set, hit the spin button and enjoy.  

Wild Symbol / Jackpot Symbol

The Thor symbol is both a Wild symbol and your Jackpot symbol. Not only does it help to complete winning combinations, but it also provides a multiplier. The multiplier on the Thunderstruck game is 2 x your original wager.  

Thunderstruck Bonus Game

The Thunderstruck online slot game offers up to 15 free spins.  You can trigger the bonus game if you manage to spin in three of the Ram symbols anywhere on the screen. The Ram symbols are also the Scatter symbols and each time one spins in they are greeted by a dramatic clap of lightening.  

The free spins bonus round has a 3 x multiplier attached to it. This of course means that every win during the free spins bonus round earns you 3 x the amount of your original wager. If you’re lucky enough to collect three or more scatters again, you automatically re-trigger the bonus feature. The free spins bonus is awarded on average every 143 spins, however it can hit more frequently.

In addition to the 15 free spins, you will also be rewarded with a cash payout for spinning in as little as two Scatter symbols. Two scatters will earn you a 2 x multiplier, three of them earns a 5 x multiplier and 4 or 5 Scatters gets you 20 and 500 x multipliers respectively. A screen full of scatters does have a massive payout attached which is why the Thunderstruck slot is so popular.

Gamble Game

It is true that not every slot player likes the Gamble feature, but this game does have one. The gamble feature allows you to bet on your current win. Once you’ve hit a winning combination, the gamble button will light up and allow you to double your win playing a game of “double or nothing”.  Be warned, if you lose the gamble, you lose your win.

The gamble game lets you guess the outcome of the next playing card. Basically you will choose whether the next card will be black or red. A correct guess will multiply your gambled amount by 2 x, and for the really brave you can try and quadruple your winnings by 4. To do this, correctly guess the next card drawn.
