The original Thunderstruck by online pokie stalwart Microgaming is a true classic, being one of the first games to bring the full video pokie experience to the online arena. Thunderstruck 2 is a welcome and successful update to the original, adding more immersive graphics and engrossing gameplay while keeping to the style and theme of the original, and placing the Thunderstruck name once again firmly at the head of the pokie pack.
Set among the mythical world of Norse gods, Thunderstruck 2 sees players once again visiting the Halls of Asgaard in search of jackpots and payouts provided in part by Microgaming’s much admired ‘243 ways to win’ feature, which is one of the most notable additions to the original and brings the series bang up to date.
The graphics are suitably modernised and enhanced from the original, with gods Odin and Thor plus characters including Loki now more impressively rendered, and the whole look and feel marks this out as a top class premium game and a worthy successor to what remains many people’s favourite online pokie.
The game itself includes a good selection of scatters, wilds and free spins to keep the player keenly interested, while the bonus system is well done and intuitive, based around the Asgaard concept of the Great Hall of Spins. You can find Thunderstruck 2 available to play for real money at many of the best online casinos, and there are also fully-featured free versions online to practise on before graduating to the real deal.
