Online casinos may be new for the people of South Africa, but that does not mean they do not have access to some of the best games that have been developed by Microgaming. Many of the online casinos that service South Africa have the game Thunderstruck ready for anyone that wants the opportunity to play it.

Online casinos are full of different slot machines. For a machine to still be popular after more than 10 years is rare. Thunderstruck is one of those rare slot machines that people keep coming back to play.

The Game

Thunderstruck is a 5 reel, 9 pay line slot that allows players to bet a maximum of 45 coins per spin. It offers a jackpot of 10,000 coins allowing for a maximum jackpot of 50,000 coins.

One of the things that sets this machine apart from other older machines is the free spin feature. A spin that has three scatter symbols gives the player 15 free spins. The jackpots during these spins are multiplied three times. That takes the maximum jackpot from 50,000 coins to 150,000 coins.

Thunderstruck includes the scatter symbol (The Ram), a wild symbol (Thor) and other symbols of Norse mythology such as the ice hammer and staffs. The big jackpot is won by getting 5 wild symbols on one pay line.

Microgaming is the leading software developer for slot machines and always creates machines with great graphics and sound. Thunderstruck is no different.

What sets this apart?

Thunderstruck was one of the first machines that offered free spins which helped it become the game of the year in 2003. It also offers a gamble feature that allows players to double their winnings by correctly choosing the color of a random card. These things may be found on other machines, but they still do not match the excitement that can be had with Thunderstruck.
