Thunderstruck was one of the most revolutionary pokies of the online gambling age, one that spawned a generation of titles and changed the face of this industry forever. Thunderstruck II therefore had a lot of expectation on its shoulders when it was released 6 years later, but with a bigger jackpot, more paylines, a better RTP and some bigger features, Thunderstruck II lived up to those expectations.
The graphics on Thunderstruck II are one of the only disappointing things about this pokie. They have improved since the first release, but not greatly so and they are still someway short of what you would expect from a modern release.
Thunderstruck II is a 243 payline pokie that carries an RTP of 96.65%, as well as some high paying symbols. The wild pays the most, and by a long way, but the game also carries a colossal in-game jackpot of close to 2.5 million coins.
Thunderstruck II has a minimum bet of just $0.30, and a maximum bet of just $30. This small maximum is one of the few areas in which the original title is better than the sequel, and this is sure to turn many players away.
The main bonus round on Thunderstruck II is a free spins feature that begins small but grows to something very impressive. The more you unlock this round, the higher in the levels you will climb. In the beginning you will unlock the Valkyrie round, where you are given 10 free spins with a multiplier of 5x. This goes all of the way to the Thor round, where your free spins improve to 25 and where the additional feature also improves.
There is also a feature that is randomly activated and turns from 1 to 5 reels wild.
Thunderstruck II is a huge improvement on one of the biggest pokies ever, and whilst it is not perfect, that statement alone is enough reason for you to play this pokie.
