Thunderstruck was one of the first ever video pokies to hit the online market. It was developed by Microgaming and released in 2004, beginning an age of dominance for them in which they would assert their control over the online gambling market. Thunderstruck would later spawn a sequel and it would also go on to inspire many developers to release similar pokies.
Thunderstruck is still available on modern online casinos and you can find it on Safe Casino and other top Microgaming licensees.
Thunderstruck has a Norse God theme, with legendary figures like Thor taking centre stage. The graphics are basic, but you can’t really expect much more from a game that has more than a decade under its belt, and for something released in the early days of online gambling, it still looks fairly impressive and even has a “gamble” feature.
Thunderstruck has an autoplay feature and an RTP of 96.10%. This 9 payline pokie can be found on both desktop and mobile casino software.
Thunderstruck has a wide betting range considering there are just 9 paylines. It works in coins, and these can be valued at anywhere from $0.01 each to $2 each. This works out at $0.09 for a minimum bet and $90 for a maximum bet.
The Thor wild will double all of your wins, and if you fill a payline with these symbols then you’ll get 10,000x. This is not the only outstanding feature though as there are also 15 free spins up for grabs, making this one of the earliest games to include this feature.
Thunderstruck is very dated, but this is a classic, and one that we can look back on fondly. What’s more, with a big free spin feature, some huge symbols and an impressive wild, Thunderstruck still stands up against many modern creations.
