243 Ways to Win!
When it comes to producing a sequel you really need to try and come up with something a little bit different. I think that’s been achieved here. For starters the first game had five reels, three rows of symbols and nine pay-lines. In this game there are now 243 different ways to win. How does it manage that high number? Well wins are paid out not just from left to right but right to left too and just need to be on adjacent reels.
The look of the game is a bit different too. Rather than the original golden symbols this time the symbols are much better designed and the Norse mythology theme played to the absolute hilt. Playing the game costs between €3 if playing at the minimum coin stake and playing the maximum ten coins per spin.and €75. You shouldn’t have any headaches finding a comfortable amount to stake.
Win with the Warriors
The symbols concentrate on the warrior side of the characters. These includes Thor of course but also Odin, Loki and Valkyrie. We also get to see Valhalla which is where these gods live plus a viking longship probably off to do a bit of pillaging and other more rude things.
It’s the Thunderstruck II logo which is the wild symbol here. This can get you some good wins when substituting for other symbols. Not so Thor’s Hammer which is the scatter symbol in this game.
Enter the Great Hall of Spins
Keep an eye out for the Wildstorm feature as this appears on a random basis. This can turn up to five reels totally wild so when that happens the chances of you gettng a win are really going to go through the roof.
That’s not the main feature here though. The Great Hall of Spins feature can be triggered if three or more of Thor’s Hammer symbol appears anywhere on the reels. The first four times you manage to get this it’s the Valkyrie Bonus that you’ll find yourself playing. As you keep on playing the game other characters and bonuses are unlocked and that leads to even more profits being made.
The Valkyrie Bonus sees you awarded ten free spins and there’s a very helpful 5x multiplier attached to any wins you get. The fifth time you trigger the bonus you’ll be playing the Loki Bonus. Now he’s a really mischievous character and in his bonus you now receive 15 fre spins. The Wild Magic symbol on the third reel will really become your friend when it randomly turns other symbols into wilds increasing your chances of getting wins. If Thor’s Hammer comes along in triplicate this profitable bonus round is re-triggered.
The bonuses keep getting better because after the 10th trigger you get promoted to the Odin Bonus. Here you get 20 free spins and the Raven feature comes into play. This turns other symbols into either 2x or 3x multiplers. Just hope your luck is in as both of them appearing on the same spin will see a 6x multiplier in play.
Tremendous Thor Bonus
After the 15th trigger it’s time to play the Thor Bonus. Now you get 25 free spins and there are rolling reels. These increase the multiplier by 1x with each consecutive win you manage to get. Again the free spins can be re-triggered so that can really get the wins rolling in.
This is a lot better in my opinion than the original game and how many times is the sequel better? Not many as anyone who has seen Grease 2 will testify. The bonus games, look and the soundtrack are all a lot better so this is highly recommended. Remember to check the paytable and have some free games to learn even more about the game.
