Norse mythology is another one of those themes that never really seem to go out of fashion among the casino game developers, but very few of them can say that their Norse mythology series have been running for almost two decades so far! However, that is exactly where we are with Microgaming’s Thunderstruck -slots, as the first title in the series was released a bit over 18 years ago in 2004. Now this just released Thunderstruck Stormchaser is already the fifth Thunderstruck installation and we dare to say its also the most advanced of them all when it comes to its offerings!
The basic game setup here is built on five reels with four rows on each of them, creating a total of 1024 winways. Main features included in the base game are the so called Rolling Reels mechanic, which works like tumble feature in some other slots; it removes all the symbols that were part of a win to make a room for new symbols dropping in and replacing them. Additionally it will also collect and remove all Multiplier Symbols, which can land anywhere on your playarea with a multiplier between 2x-20x. These will be then added together and the multiplier will be applied to your total win at the end of the Rolling Reels mechanic when there is no more new wins created with the new symbols dropping in.
The maximum win you can get with just one spin in this slot is massive 10,000x your stake and what makes it even more exciting is the fact that in theory this could happen on any spin during the base game. This is thanks to the Wildstorm feature, which can trigger randomly during the base game to give you full Wild reels. All your five reels can be affected by this so if that would happen, you would end up with all five reels full of Wild symbols generating the biggest possible win.
Finally there is also a Free Spin feature, which starts when you land minimum of three Scatter symbols anywhere on your reels during the base game. The feature always begins with a spin of the bonus wheel, which together with number of Scatters determines the starting win multiplier and exact amount of free spins;
3 Scatter symbols = Bonus wheel spin resulting in 7-12 free spins with multiplier of 1x-6x
4 Scatter symbols = Bonus wheel spin resulting in 10-15 free spins with multiplier of 3x-9x
5 Scatter symbols = Bonus wheel spin resulting in 15-25 free spins with multiplier of 5x-12x
The bonus wheel also dictates how many Wildstorm tokens you get to start with. You need to collect these tokens in order to enjoy some Wildstorm spins after the Free Spin bonus ends, and this can be done by landing more Scatter symbols during the feature. These are then counted next to your reels with three different stages to reach; if you manage to collect a total of either 12, 14 or 16 Wildstorm tokens, you will get 1, 2 or 3 Wildstorm spins at the end of it.
This could easily be the best Thunderstruck -game so far from Microgaming. The graphic and sound design is absolutely spot on and manages to create a really epic fantasy-like atmosphere which suits this game perfectly. The features it has are very well thought out and just overall really entertaining to watch. We had a blast with this slot and can only recommend it! Head to Chanz.com right away to try it yourself!
