With Microgaming's original Thunderstruck slot being such a cult game since its release in 2003, the moment Microgaming announced the release of Thunderstruck 2 back at the ICE show in London in January 2010, slots players started anticipating it's arrival. Microgaming launched the game on the 4th May, 2010 and it has since become a firm favourite although personally speaking, the original is still my own top choice!
Thunderstruck 2 is a very different game to the original and at its heart has 4 free spin features that have to be unlocked. They are probably similar in terms of long-term pay-out but they undoubtedly alter the variance of the slot depending on which you pick.
If, like me, you are a fan of the original Thunderstruck slot, you'll probably be wondering what to expect? The original slot game is one of the most popular online slots ever, and it's easy to see why. They got the graphics and sounds right and balanced it with gameplay that keeps you interested with the potential for some big wins.
The bet limit for Thunderstruck 2 is $15 a spin by default although if you are a high roller then a few casinos upped the max bet to $30 in September 2012. These are the main features of the game:
1. The slot has 243 pay-lines.
2. Styled more like Tomb Raider II slot than the old Thunderstruck
3. It has 4 different free spin bonus rounds
4. Up to 6x multiplier and 25 free spins
5. Random Wild Storm feature introduces stacked wilds in the base game.
Immortal Romance: A Thunderstruck 2 Clone!
Fans of Thunderstruck 2 might also be interested in another slot from Microgaming called Immortal Romance which is a higher variance clone of TS2. It's available at all of the Microgaming casinos listed on this website and it uses the same engine as the Thunderstruck 2 slot with 4 free spin features. The features are a bit different in the way they work but the similarities are obvious.
Also worth mentioning is Microgaming's June 2012 slot release, The Dark Knight which is obviously themed on the Batman movie. The eye-candy on show in that game even makes Thunderstruck 2 and Immortal Romance seem dated! All 3 slots are available at all the Microgaming casinos on this website.
