With a theme that has the Vikings for inspiration, and with a developer like Red Tiger working on making this a great looking slot, one can only feel excited about the chance to play Thor’s Lightning. Its creator went with an unusual layout and some impressive features, so add a pretty design as well, and you’re looking at a fun time.
You’re going to notice 7x7 reels in the game area of Thor’s Lightning. The slot will be fun to play, featuring cluster pays and delivering several types of free spins, along with Lightning Strikes and Hammer Strikes. Payout wise, a win of $72,000 appears to be the highest that the slot will go.
Betting and Prizes
The total amount spent on each round is the one that matters, and so you just have to decide on a value from the range offered inside. You get a minimum bet of $0.20, with a maximum of $40. The slot doesn’t tell you how much the line bet is worth.
For the biggest payout of Thor’s Lightning, you’re looking at the Hammer symbol, which offers 25x the stake in exchange for a relatively high number of positions occupied. You get wilds to help out, and the developer mentions that the slot’s maximum payout potential is at 1,800x, which could mean a jackpot of $72,000 when the highest wager is selected.
Red Tiger mentions that this is a slot with Medium volatility and with a High hit rate. This means that while there are no Earth-shattering payouts being offered here, you do get rewards fairly often and you don’t get a chance to become bored with the action.
Thor's Lightning Slot Features
One of the defining things about Thor’s Lightning is going to be the way that it creates its winning combinations. The slot has clusters forming with a minimum of 5 matching symbols next to each other (horizontal or vertical connection). The game area has 49 positions (40 regulars and 9 for the Free Spins), so the winning clusters can get very big, particularly when certain features help. Obviously, the higher the number of symbols in a cluster, the better the payout.
Wilds will be in play and will be used by the game as part of the clusters that they’re next to. They can help get the minimum number of symbols for a cluster, or they can improve on an existing win.
Lightning Strikes is one of the special features, and if triggered it will have Thor summoning a lightning strike. This takes away the low paying icons or it can also transform certain symbols into a single one, for a better chance at forming a big cluster.
Hammer Strike is another one, which can give you nudges or it can remove symbols, so that new wins can form.
To unlock the Free Spins, you need to have winning combinations appearing next to the locked positions. If all blocks are unlocked in a single round, you can get either the Valhalla or the Muspell Free Spins.
Theme & Design
Thor’s Lightning has a Norse style design, of very high quality thanks to Red Tiger’s efforts. The 7x7 reels and the 3x3 Free Spins positions are also going to make an impression, so this doesn’t look like any regular slot you might’ve played so far. The quality is high, with four high symbols revolving around carvings and another four low ones using runes.
Thor’s Lightning will offer players a fun experience, and a unique one at the same time. It’s not offering a huge payout, but it’s just not that sort of game.
