Thor is an amazing Norse god. He inspired the classic Thunderstruck online slots game at All Slots, and then he came back and inspired the equally classic Thunderstruck II. So let’s take a look at these two incredible Thor-inspired games.
What They Have in Common
The main thing, of course, is Thor. The Norse people, like the Greeks and the Romans, were great mythologisers, and the legend of Thor, the mighty god of thunder, is their greatest myth. And that’s why Thor is the star of both the Thunderstruck and the Thunderstruck II online slot machines.
In addition, Thunderstruck and Thunderstruck II both have five reels, they both have wild symbols that are also multipliers, and they both have scatter symbols. And they both award real money payouts for winning spins.
How They Differ
The original Thunderstruck slots game has 9 Paylines; Thunderstruck II has 243 Ways to Win. In many other ways as well, Thunderstruck II is a bigger and more complex game than the relatively simple and straightforward Thunderstruck.
For example, while Thunderstruck focuses exclusively on Thor, Thunderstruck II brings in fellow Norse heroes Odin, Loki, and Valkyrie. Thunderstruck has one Free Spins feature: 15 free spins with a 3X multiplier. Thunderstruck II has four different Free Spins features – each named after one of the four Norse heroes – with differing numbers of free spins and with special add-ons like Wild Magic and Rolling Reels. There are other differences as well, but this gives you the idea.
Play One or Play Both
There is something to be said in favour of simple online slot games, and something to be said for complex. If you like simple slots, Thunderstruck is the game for you. If you prefer complex slots, it’s Thunderstruck II. And, of course, you are free to enjoy both games when you’re in different moods on different days. So have fun, good luck, and give our regards to Thor!
