This Norse god welcomes you onto the massive 7×7 Thor’s Lightning grid slot that is demanding, but not without rewards.
Welcome Journeyman, Vikings, Warriors and Chieftains. You’ve entered Thor’s domain and only with his mercy will you survive these frozen reels.
What you have here in this Thor’s Lightning mobile slot is a Cluster Pay game. Any 5+ symbols touching vertically or horizontally will create a cash win.
Except unlike the Viking Runecraft grid slot, which this game borrows heavily from, you start with only 40 symbols instead of 48. That’s because straight away on your journey to Valhalla, you are literally blocked by a massive stone.
As with all these cluster pay games, you generally need at least 10+ symbols in a cluster to make any decent amounts.
And with 8 symbols literally blocking your way in the centre of the reels, that is really really difficult thing to do.
You are helped on your endeavours by the fact that this has cascading wins – so any win will explode and more symbols will tumble from above.
That said, your real help is Thor himself, who randomly throws lighting and hammers at the reels, nudging symbols into winning positions, removing low paying symbols, adding wilds and much more.
You know what’s annoying? When you can tell what will be a good spin or a bad spin before the reels have landed on screen.
Which is what happens. Unless you trigger either of the two Thor’s Lighting free spins or have the god of thunder setting the screen alight, you know that this particular spin was a waste of money.
It happens in many other real money slots too, but here it’s too obvious and dies down the thrill somewhat. A little bit like the Pirates Smugglers Paradise game, for one.
Still, we can’t deny that with 1,800 times your bet max wins, and lots of opportunity for bigger cash paydays, there’s enough here to love to take a few quick Viking slot bets.

Wilds: The golden Viking statue is the wild symbol and can be used to replace any other symbol to create a win.
Cluster Pays: Clusters of 5 or more symbols, touching either vertically or horizontally, will create a win.
Avalanching Reels: every winning symbol will explode and more symbols will drop down from above.
Thor's Lightning and Hammer: Thor may summon his magic on any spin and do any of the following:
How to trigger the Free Spins: In the centre of Thor's Lightning slot game, there is a block of stones covering a 3x3 space of symbols. If you manage to get wins all around that symbol, you will trigger one of two free spin rounds.
This Thor's Lightning slot borrows heavily from Play'n GO's Viking Runecraft and doesn't quite reach the same heights.
The base game is a little frustrating because that damn stone block always gets in the way of any decent wins.
Thankfully the wins come often enough that you can afford to keep spinning for long enough to hit one of the two free spin features - both of which can pay handsomely.
Personally, we would have prefered to see the Muspell spins a few more times than the other, but either tend to be generous enough that you don't feel cheated.
All in all a decent all way pays slot game, one that goes nicely as a pair with the other avalanching reels in Red Tigers's Gemtastic game.
Thor's Lightning is a 7x7 grid slot with cascading wins, 5 random bonus base game feature and two free spin games.
