The Thunderstruck Wild Lightning slot has 5×3 reels with 40 paylines, wilds with multipliers, and 5 free spins bonus features. But the real draw is the Link&Win bonus which can win you up to 15,000x your bet.
Microgaming will tell you that this isn’t a sequel to their famous Thunderstruck 2 slot, but a reinvention. Whatever you want to call it, this Thunderstruck Wild Lightning mobile slot is certainly a worthy successor.
Thor is sitting right by the reels, ready to offer you a storm of wins thanks to also being the wild symbols. He shows up sometimes as a single symbol, sometimes stacked 2 or 3 high, but each time with a 2x or 5x multiplier.
Why does that matter? Because it makes a strong paytable even stronger and helps keep you spinning whilst you wait to trigger the free spins bonus.
Here is where this Thunderstruck Wild Lightning online slot has in common with its predecessor. The first time you unlock the free spins you’ll be able to play 15 free spins with a wild multiplier ranging from 2x to 5x.
So far, so like the base game.
But every 5th time you open up the free spins you open up a new bonus where you get fewer free spin rounds, but bigger multipliers on the wild. All the way up to 6x, 8x, or 12x.
On the 20th trigger, you get the chance to open up to Svartalheim free spin – that’s a single spin with the Wildstorm feature.
During all the free spins, you get highlighted areas when a wild lands. If another wild lands in that case, it will expand and covers the whole reel. That’s the wild lightning feature in this Thunderstruck Wild Lightning slot game.
The Wild Storm slot, on the other hand, only happens in the Svartalheim free spins. Here you can get up to 5 expanded wilds and win big.
And whilst all this is fun, it’s not as much as fun or as big a win as you’ll get if you trigger the Link&Win feature, much like in the Hyper Gold slot. You’ll get 3 respins to catch as many instant win symbols as possible.
If you catch any one of the jackpot symbols, you could win anything from 25x to 15,000x your bet.
Thunderstruck Wild Lightning is frustrating to play online if you can’t wait to get to the end, but a huge amount of fun if you love mobile slots that evolve and have big wins. And there’s also the Immortal Romance Mega Moolah slot if you want something a little more traditional.

Wild: Thor is the wild symbol and can come stacked 3 symbols high in the base game. It can also randomly add a 2x or 5x multiplier to any win that it's involved in.
Link&Win feature: 6 or more Thunderball symbols trigger this Link&Win feature. Each of these symbols has a cash value and you get 3 respins to get more. If you do land more, you reset to 3 spins, if you go three spins without landing more the bonus ends.
But if you manage to catch enough symbols you can unlock further rows in this Thunderstruck Wild Lightning slot.
How to win the Jackpots: During the Link&Win feature, you can catch jackpot symbols. If you catch them you win the following:
The mega jackpot is won if you fill all the reels with Thunderball symbols.
Scatter and Free Spins: 3 or more scatters trigger the free spins bonus. At first, you only have access to the first free spin bonus rounds, but every 5 times you enter the bonus you unlock a new feature.
Eventually, you can pick between all the different free spins if you unlock them all.
All Free Spins have the wild lightning feature. Land a wild symbol anywhere on reels 2, 3, and 4 triggers the feature during the free spins. If another wild lands in that position it expands to fill the reel and is wild for that spin.
There's no way to deny that this Thunderstruck Wild Lightning slot machine is an excellent game with a great top win.
It is a slow burn, much like the original, meaning that new gamblers who love fast action games like the Gemix 2 slot, may struggle to get through the first 500 spins or so.
But once you unlock the full slot, with all the free spin features, there's no doubt that you'll find it hard to stay away. And till then there are those 5x multiplier wilds in the base game to keep you company.
