Powered by Red Tiger Gaming, Thor’s Lightning uses a seven x seven symbol grid based on the Epic Norse adventure with the gold of thunder.
There’s a suitably epic feel to the design here. Set against a wintry backdrop, the seven × seven grid of reels are made up of four lower value rune stones and 4 higher value stone carvings. The best of these is Thor’s hammer. Players can form winning combinations by landing clusters of matching icons.
Players will need to land five or more to form a winner. Landing forty of the top paying hammer symbol and players will receive a payout of twenty-five times their betting stake. There is also a wild that replaces all paying icons. The developer, Red Tiger Gaming has packed in a good selection of extras here that Players will adore:
In the centre of the reels, Players will see a nine-icon free spins block. These icons are locked, and should Players land a winner adjacent to an icon will unlock it. Unlock all the blocks in the same set of symbol drop sequences, and players will activate one of two free spin rounds:
Valhalla Free Spins round – here the reels are made up entirely of blanks and golden shield icons. Once all players free spins are used up, all the shields on view are flipped round to reveal a stake multiplier. These are added together to give players their total payout amount.
Muspell Free Spins round – these take place on an entirely new set of reels where all of the lower value icons are removed. The icon drops are in play here too.
The Lava Shower round also randomly applies to destroy one or more type of icons for a free respin. The Lava Flow round creates matching symbols on connected reels for assured wins.
Lightning Strikes round – on any spin, the animated Thor can summon up a lightning strike, that will remove lower value icons from the reels or turn a random selection of symbols into the same one (or better still a wild).
Hammer Strike round – Thor can throw his hammer onto the reels during any spin, leading to a nudge or icon removal that leads to a new winning combination being generated.
Thor’s Lightning has superb imagery, and there’s a full symphonic score to accompany all the gameplay action. The gameplay equals the high-class audios and animations, with the frequent hammer and lightning strikes prepping up the original game.
Odin, Loki, Freya, and Thor are the central powerful god characters when discussing Norse mythology. All the gods have capabilities and skills ordinary mortals can only desire or dream of. No wonder that slot developers continually develop so many slots featuring one or a combination of the Norse gods themselves.
On Thor’s Lightning slot, the honour of superb gameplay goes solely to Thor who swings his mighty hammer to generate big wins of up to 1,800 times a player’s bet stake. Are you ready to encounter the Nordic deities?
