Thunderstruck Wild Lightning - We always like a good mystical theme with focus on Norse mythology. Thor, the God of Lightning, graces us with his presence, as does Mjolnir, his hammer. The design is very well done, especially when Thor does appear. You can see the hardened lines in his face from battle and he is so lifelike you expect him to smash his beer and exclaim, “another!” at any time.
While the symbols in Thunderstruck Wild Lightning may be very well designed, the rest of the game does take a backseat. For example, the controls are quite basic, but that doesn’t matter since you’ll be captivated by the symbols anyway.
There is not much to make out in the background, with just a glowing green or deep blue oblivion obscured by the playing grid and jackpot counters.
As for the details, Thunderstruck Wild Lightning really impressed us and got us very eager for the game. The RTP is at 96.10%, which is quite decent and above average. There are 5x4 reels that make up the playing grid with 40 paylines.

This doesn’t sound very impressive or out of the ordinary at all, but players will be happy to learn that the max payout is a whopping 15,000x your initial bet - amazing right? Yes, the volatility is higher, but the wins make it worth it.
Keep in mind that Microgaming now allows operators to choose from a range of RTP, which can impact your chances. However, the betting range in Thunderstruck Wild Lightning goes from 0.20 to 16, so you can choose to place smaller bets to minimize your risk.
Thunderstruck Wild Lightning boasts of wilds with multipliers, which is understandably popular because they really rake in the wins. Thor himself is the wild card, so make sure to get him!
Mjolnir, the reliable hammer is the scatter. You need at least 3 of them to appear to trigger the free spins. Once you get them, you get a complimentary 200x your initial stake plus the option to pick between 5 free spins types with various volatilities.
The free spins are named after the 5 realms - Jotunheim, Vanaheim, Alfheim, Nidavellir, and Svartalfheim. Aside from these features, Thunderstruck Wild Lightning also has the Link and Win feature that requires thunderball icons to appear. It’s not that easy to trigger because you need at least 6. Once you manage to land 6, you get taken to a different screen and offered 3 respins.

Here, the thunderball scatters will become sticky and hold their place. This is also where you can expand the reels, get paid well, and even trigger the jackpots.
What’s our final verdict for Thunderstruck Wild Lightning? It’s honestly really fun to play and offers a very impressive max win. There are also jackpots you can trigger and a very long list of special features. The betting range is small and the amount is low, which means it’s a great option for players that don’t want to bet a lot.
However, Thunderstruck Wild Lightning isn’t for the faint of heart in terms of RTP. The highest RTP is a little above average, but remember that the developers can easily set it at a different rating, which could affect your wins.
