Hottest UK Slots
A quick glance at our extensive UK Slot Games library will tell you that there are a huge number of UK slots out at the moment which are based on Vikings. There's a whole series of them from Yggdrasil, and there's also the officially licensed slot of the popular television show, too. You'll find many of those slots in our 'new games' section, but that doesn't mean that the idea of using Vikings as a theme is a new one. It may be more popular than ever right now, but some developers have been at it for a long time. Microgaming released the Norse-legend themed Thunderstruck II in 2010, and as the name suggests, it's a sequel. They've been ahead of the curve on this for a very long time!
The original Thunderstruck was one of the most popular slots UK players spent their money on during its peak years, so the pressure was on Microgaming when they decided to release a sequel. Fortunately for them and us, they got everything right. There's still a sophisticated and layered bonus offering to play for, and the soundtrack and graphics had a huge overhaul. Thunderstruck II still looks great now, but when it first came out it was light years ahead of the rest when it came to style.
There’s more than just good looks to the slot, too. Despite being confined to a standard 5x3 layout, the slot offers players 243 potential ways to win. That’s because it doesn’t follow a typical payline structure. Your wins will be better if your symbols line up perfectly, but you’ll still get a little something so long as you have matching symbols on the reels going from left to right, even if they’re not touching each other.
On those reels, as with so many other UK slots, you'll find playing cards representing the least valuable symbols. We don't mind that here as much as we sometimes do though - they've been rendered in stone, so they don't take away from the overall theme of the slot. Everything else you'll see here is perfectly in keeping with the genre; a Viking longboat, Valhalla, and Norse Gods Odin, Loki, Valkyrie, and Thor. That's right - Thor and Loki were big names long before Marvel got their hands on them!
The logo of the slot also puts in an appearance as the wild symbol, substituting for everything apart from the scatter, which is represented by Thor’s hammer. You’ll need that to trigger the bonus features - and what a bonus offering Thunderstruck II has for you!
We’ll come to the most exciting bonus feature in a moment, but there’s also an excellent randomly-occurring feature to tell you about first. That goes by the name of Wildstorm and may occur on any spin. It’s one free spin, during which at least one reel will be stacked with wilds. If you’re especially lucky, anything up to all five of the reels might be wild, and a gigantic win will be yours.
Great Hall of Spins
The really exciting bonus, though, is the Great Hall of Spins feature. Unlike most UK slot games, where you can trigger the same bonus feature several times without seeing any change, this one actually rewards you for hitting it repeatedly.
You’ll need three or more of the scatter symbols to trigger the feature, which takes the shape of a Free Spins round. The first four times you trigger it, you’ll be playing according to the rules of Valkyrie, who will give you ten free spins, during which a 5x multiplier is applied to any winnings you receive. That’s a fairly good place to start, but it gets better.
From the 5th triggering of the bonus feature, you’ll be playing under Loki’s guidance. Loki will give you fifteen free spins, with a special symbol on the third reel which transforms the symbols around it into wilds, adding to your wins.
Trigger the feature ten times, and Odin will take over. Odin gives you twenty free spins, and uses his pet raven (yes, he has a pet raven. Don’t ask us why, we don’t know), to randomly transform standard symbols into multipliers of either 2x or 3x. If both ravens land on the same row, that’s a 6x multiplier.
Stick around for long enough to trigger a fifteenth round of free spins, and Thor becomes the man in charge. As a reward, he’ll give you 25 free spins with rolling multipliers. Each time you find a win, the multiplier applied to your next win increases by 1x.
Obviously, you have to stick around for the long term to make it all the way up to Thor. This is a slot which wants to take up your whole bankroll, and it isn’t shy about it! If you’re successful, though, it’s hugely rewarding. We actually think it’s a neat idea to give players a reason to stick around.
Thunderstruck II Developer - Microgaming
It doesn't surprise us that Microgaming was ahead of the trend when it came to Viking-themed slots; they've been ahead of the trend with just about everything in the history of UK slots. We're talking about the developer who more-or-less invented the format when they coded the first-ever piece of software capable of supporting an online casino. That was 25 years ago, in 1994! That would have been enough to secure them legendary status, but they repeated the trick in 2004 when they did the same with mobile casinos. Microgaming is at the forefront of innovation, and they intend to stay there. They currently have a series of deals with smaller developers, through which they help small companies to bring their slots to the market, but get to slap the Microgaming label on them.
Because they've been around for so long, you can play Microgaming slots from ten years ago, and then play one of their more recent slots to see how they've developed over time. Some of the slots UK casinos have seen the most business from have been Microgaming creations; time-honored classics like Avalon online slot, for example. Immortal Romance slot still has a large base of players, and at the same time through their partnerships, they've producing inventive and offbeat slots like Fortunium. There's seemingly nothing Microgaming can't do - and if we're all playing slots through VR technology in ten years time, it will probably be Microgaming behind that, too!
