thunderstruck Reviews by Players

Edmund Eberhart. Reviewed on 02.06.18
Thunderstruck video slot was created by microgaming software long time ago, and of course it is interesting to play the game which is daddy of amazing video slot thunderstruck II, and i like to say that daddy is not bad and also worth to try this game, since here we have Thor, what else did we need?

This game has 9 paylines, and therefore minimal bet here is 0.09, which perfectly suits to all types of gamblers, because if you have something like 10$ at your account, it is not good idea play games with minimal bet size higher than 0.09. Here we have wilds on all reels, and wilds here pay really decent, more than 1000 x total bet, and if 5 wilds land during free spins, payout will be more than 3000 x total bet, so yes, daddy also have some chances to pay really big wins. Scatters here needed to trigger free spins feature, which is 15 free spins with x 3 multiplier, and also can be retriggered. 5 scatters here have high payout, 500 x total bet, so you can expect this in free spins and pray for 1500 x total bet. I played this game couple of times only at 32red, and i think i like this game, i see many screenshots how players win big on this game, but for me this one is really unlucky, after probably 30+ features i have only few wins more than 100 x total bet, and never higher, it is a bit sad of course, but i am ok with it, because i understand than higher wins is rare, and i need to play much more to get it.

I think this game has same variance like thunderstruck II - high variance. Here is possible really great and big wins, but chances for this not so big. I will definitely will try this game again, in order increase my biggest win result on it.
Thunderstruck is a 9 line 5 reel slot machine based upon the Viking god Thor and is from Microgamings very early video slots collection.

Thunderstruck contains all the expected symbols such as Thor (Doubling wild) get 5 of these and winning really is thunderous! Bagging the player 10,000x their line bet!(in free spins 30,000x!!),5 brown staff symbols is 2nd best and is worth a tasty 750x line bet to the player, Green horn symbol, Lightning bolt symbol, Ice Hammer symbol but don’t expect to see this lot in massive combos often, they are few and far between.

The lower variance symbols range from Nine-Ace but there are times when playing Thunderstruck you’ll be begging the game for five 9s! When it’s on a cold run believe me anything like that is pure gold!

The max bet players can do on Thunderstruck is £45 a spin and the minimum is 0.01p a spin. That is why this game is still enjoyed by high rollers and low rollers whatever your betting range it’s possible to achieve a big win! If you put the time in!

With Thunderstruck containing such high paying symbols (especially with a doubling wild) you may be thinking does this vintage video slot have any more in store for me? Yes it does! Thunderstruck has Rams scatter symbols, get 3 or more of these and you win 15 free spins with amultiplier x3 your bet and x 6 for every combination with a wild symbol. Another brilliant extra is if you get 3 or more during the free spins. A 2nd set of 15 free spins is awarded, and as far as I know there is no limit to how many times they can re-trigger! This Isn't all these scatters have to offer though every time a player gets just 2 of these their bet is doubled and returned for example betting 90p player will get back 1.80 every time 2 appear in the base game. Last but by no means least if you are very lucky and obtain 5 rams in base game you’ll win 500x your overall bet so even at 9p bet that’s £45 returned to you!

I first played Thunderstruck at Ladbrokes thought it was ok but moved onto other games like Mega Moolah and Tomb Raider. I never played it again until 2011. I decided to try it again this time on Riverbelle casino. I began with a £20 balance betting 9p a spin and it was giving me the usual mostly low symbols like 3 kings or even worse 2 9s! I kept going having seen some amazing pictures online and a winners list full of people winning on this game. I decided to up my bet to 18p as I thought surely I have to get lucky sooner or later. Then in a flash 5 Ice hammers with wild! This gave my balance a very healthy boost of course! That was not all the slot had in store though. I decided to up the money to 27p and free spins came up within 20 more rounds! I think the win was around £50. But from that moment I knew I was going to win big again at last! I stuck to my guns at 27p and just seemed to keep on hitting the free spins then I got them one more time and the free spins just didn’t end! I am sure it re-triggered them around 4 times! 75 free games! I was a bit annoyed not to have upped the bet but after they had completed my balance was at £193! Had gone down a bit but paid off not quitting. I withdrew the cash and was done for the day but the moral of this story is don’t give up on this slot as it can be hugely rewarding £173 better of in just 2 and a bit hours!

For all the reasons described above I give Thunderstruck 8/10 although its high risk if you play smart you can achieve a big payday (Just don’t give up!)

Thunderstruck is a Microgaming slot ,really old but the fact is that I didn't try this slot so far, I played only the second release, Thunderstruck II, a 243 ways to win slot with nice features. I decided to try this slot, I thought that being the first released will be interesting too. I was expecting to see the same 243 ways to win slot, but it has only 9 paylines and a minimum bet of 0.09 euro. Because the minimum bet was 0.09, I started to play with 0.18 euro bet but I noticed that the wins aren't as good as I was expecting and I decided to change to 0.45 euro! About the graphics I could say that I am not impressed, I know that the game is pretty old but I was expecting to better graphics and nice symbols.

The features of this slot are very common, a Wild symbol, Free Spins feature and a Gamble feature that I am not using it anyway because I think that it is a waste of time and money! Regarding the free spins, I don’t understand why they chose the Ram symbol as scatter for the free spins, I don’t think that has any connection with the theme of the slot! I managed to catch these free spins 40 minutes after I started to play, very hard to catch 3 rams, most of the time will appear only 2 scatters on the first 2 reels or the last 2!

About the payout rate I don’t know what to say, I played with 0.45 euro stake and only one time I caught the free spins that gave me a 18 euro win.

I will give only 7 for the graphics, it is an old slot and I think that the second release is better than this one!

The features will receive another 7 because it has only free spins and a wild symbol, so nothing special.
This is an old and legendary slot game. Thunderstruck has only 9 pay lines. Well now, this game was never something especially for me. It's a bit boring for my taste and does not offer a lot of excitement and adrenaline while you play. Also, the reels are turning in some strange way. Actually I do not have a feeling that the reels are spinning at all, when I play here. I do not know if it's up to my old PC or something else is at stake. Of course this is an old game and the graphics are not anything special. I like some of the older Microgaming games because of symbols. I noticed that the symbols in these older slots are full of tiny and catchy details. In other words they look brilliant. But that is not the case with this game.

Here, the symbols look somehow completely easy and cheap. Like the designers of this game have invested a minimal effort. The theme for this game is inspired by Scandinavian mythology. I do not know almost anything about Scandinavian mythology so I do not have anything to write about it. I had the opportunity to try this game often. Also I've had some big wins. But those wins mostly come suddenly upon dozens of small wins. That is why this game is quite boring to me. From the futures there is free spins bonus. You must have at least 3 scatter symbols to get to this bonus. In that case, if I remember correctly, you will receive 15 free spins. A few years ago there were several Microgaming slot tournaments with this game. Today you can only play it at Go Wild VIP slot tournament, if you get an invitation from the casino for this tournament.

Thunderstruck is a video slot game that I will not recommend. It looks cheap and is boring, boring and I will repeat once again, this is a very boring game. However, if you like games with a theme from the Scandinavian mythology, then I recommend the continuation of this game Thunderstruck II, which is much better than this

I found Thunderstruck II to be first for a review than the original Thunderstruck. Thunderstruck, being as a very old 9 paylines slot can't be hated but appreciated. The times I spent on this slot come from playing my dues on Platinum Play's free play offer, part of the match bonuses on Vegas Palms to wager some of the bonuses I have on there and on and off I would visit Thunderstruck sometimes when searching in the T section of the download casino's list of slots.

There is a huge jump from this slot to the new and improved Thunderstruck II, from 9 paylines to 243 ways, and features are just incredible. Over to the original Thunderstruck Slot I can expect to play with $0.54 a spin, reducing the infamous max set features already in play as I step into Thunderstruck. I really dislike how some slots are set at max coins/sizes and I have to be the one to take everything down before I start playing. It's surprising to know Thunderstruck has 15 Free spins at 3x for 3 scattered Rams. I most often use the auto play for 50 rounds to get my results. I have yet to see 5 of a kind combinations during free spins so I'm willing to stick around when that happens.

When I see some satisfaction on my winnings after seeing $15 - $36 worth of winnings, maybe less, I will try my luck often at the gamble feature to find out if I can go big or just go walking home. Most of my results can be neutral when they are to be gambled. I've seen the colour black stay 7 times in a row inside the gamble feature before it becomes red. I had a blast just choosing it again and again and collecting my funds before it all hits the fan. About $60 came from my winnings inside the features (15 Free spins and gamble feature), it's thrilling to play the gamble feature even though sometimes I make wrong decisions on it. If it weren't for Thunderstruck in my opinion we wouldn't have the shock and awe Thunderstruck II, just to point it out! For simple, entertaining fun trust in Thunderstruck.

A rating of 7 out of 10 for the original Thunderstruck!

This game is getting a little long in the tooth now, but it's still just as good as ever if you favour the older, nine liner style of slot game. It’s all just so simple, with some big hits in the base game paytable as well as a free spins mode that gives you tripled up wins as well. I’ve actually seen a screenshot of somebody who was playing this game at just 1p per spin – a single line – and hit the five wilds during the free spins winning a monster £300, or 30,000 x times his stake to put it another way. Outrageous!!

A little fact for AskGamblers to note, the free version on this page is no longer accessible from the UK because of country restrictions on wherever you are using to supply the free game. It would be nice to get this fixed if possible ;)

One thing this game has which Microgaming seem to have brushed aside lately is extremely detailed autoplay settings – you can tune everything, not just the number of spins like on many other games. I particularly like the fact you can set a very small delay in between each spin if you wish, making the game much quicker than other games even when you put them in “Quick Spin” mode. Why can’t we still have these features in new games too?!
This is a very different animal from the second Thunderstruck game, which is really just “another” 243 ways slot game, but then again, this game itself spawned a huge number of virtually identical games with just the symbols on the reels changed such as Adventure Palace, Ladies Nite, and Spring Break – so if you like the theme of any of those other games better than this one, then you might prefer to play those instead. The mechanics, prizes and features are all completely identical. I’m a bit cynical about this, and would prefer to see Microgaming concentrating on creating on genuinely new titles instead of spending so much time just reskinning old ones.
