Thunderstruck 2 was originally launched on desktop back in May 2010 and it quickly became one of Microgaming’s most popular titles. Players could launch this slot over Microgaming’s download, Flash and Quickfire platforms and then on February 1st 2013, it was launched on the Mobile Air client which is Android and iOS compatible. Finally, on November 5th, the HTML5 version of Thunderstruck 2 was also launched.

Speaking about the launch of Thunderstruck 2 onto mobile back in February was the head of Product Channels at Microgaming, Neill Whyte, “The use of hardware acceleration is transforming the way we develop our games for the mobile arena. It allows us to put our world-leading game titles onto the mobile platform, incorporating all of the graphics, effects and features that made the slot such a hit on the PC platform. Thunderstruck II is arguably one of our most popular and successful games, so it’s a great addition to our Mobile Air client.”

This latest development for Microgaming’s HTML5 platform means that players can now find the Thunderstruck 2 slot machine on all of Microgaming’s impressive platforms. Speaking about the latest HTML5 version in November, Whyte added, “Thunderstruck II is one of our most successful games and we are delighted that players can experience the world-renowned slot on any platform and desired choice of device. We recognise the importance of developing games with cross-platform capability; our achievement with Thunderstruck II signifies the start of things to come.”

A new feature was also added to this slot called Paytable Achievements and this basically enables players to keep track of their winnings. Upon completing certain win ranges and after UNLOCKING certain symbols, the paytable will turn gold. Thunderstruck 2 has 5 reels and 243 ways to win per spin and the betting range is similar to that of a 30-paylined slot machine. Therefore the lowest cost for one spin starts from as little as 0.30 coins and the max cost per spin is fixed at 15.00 coins.

The Thunderstruck 2 Logo is the Wild Symbol and this will substitute all of the symbols on the reels expect for the Thor’s Hammer Scatter Symbol and any line win that contains a Wild Symbol will automatically be doubled. When three or more of the Scatter Symbols appear in view, the main bonus feature called The Great Hall of Spins will automatically trigger and then multiple entries into The Great Hall of Spins will sequentially unlock even more rewarding bonus features.

For example, Valkyrie offers 10 Free Spins with a 5X Multiplier, Loki offers 15 Free Spins with a Wild Magic Feature, Odin offers 20 Free Spins with a Wild Raven Feature and the best feature is Thor, which offers 25 Free Spins with a Rolling Reels feature. You can also win huge prizes thanks to the randomly triggered Wildstorm Feature. This can turn up to as many as five reels into completely Wild Reels. When this happens, the prizes can be massive.

So, whether you want to play on this top Microgaming slot machine from your PC, laptop, mobile phone or tablet, you really can take your pick now. Most players shouldn’t have any difficulty finding this game because it can now be found in almost every Microgaming powered casino.
