What is it that makes Thor so special? Is it his hammer? Well, I originally thought so, but I soon learned that his powers came from an inner source, after watching his sister Hela shattering it into a thousand pieces in the Thor Ragnarok movie. But we can all breathe a sigh of relief because Thor’s trustee hammer is back by his side in Red Tiger’s latest release; Thor’s Lightning and it’s unlike anything I’ve ever seen…
…because there are no win lines? So, how do you win? Well read on to find out!
Based on mythology, the slot is a 7-reel, 7-row creation featuring cluster pays, unfamiliar with cluster pays? Let me make it a little easier to understand; a symbol is part of a cluster if it lands horizontally or vertically adjacent to a matching symbol. Five or more identical symbols appearing in a cluster awards a win. Winning clusters disappear to allow the above symbols to fall into place, giving you more chances to win in each spin…
Winning clusters reveal adjacent locked tiles – reveal all of them to unlock one of two types of bonus spins. So, basically this means that the centre 9 squares are the bonus spins squares, land wins to eliminate the symbols covering these 9 squares and hey presto – you’ll get your hands on the bonus spins. Thor may summon lightning to remove all low-paying symbols or turn random symbols into the same type or into wilds! Thor may also throw his hammer onto the grid to remove symbols or nudge reels and rows to find a win.
Muspell Spins is another feature with high paying symbols and lava features. The lava may destroy symbols or add one type of symbol. Lave may also throw wilds onto the reels. Valhalla Spins plays with only golden shields which lock and reveal stake multipliers when your spins end. There are two types of wild symbols; Valhalla (golden) and Muspell (red for evil); these substitute for all paying icons to hopefully create wins.
High paying icons are; Thor’s hammer, tree, wolf and what looks to be an eagle. Low paying symbols are the ancient letters. To play, you set your bet via the stake button and bets start at just 20p and reach their peak at £6 a spin. Auto allows you to sit back and watch the action unfold; just select the number of automatic spins and a loss limit to get started. Like things fast and furious? Then there’s a turbo button for faster action. Sounds, notifications and the paytable of payouts are always positioned to the top of the gaming screen.
Thor’s Lightning is a mobile optimised slot machine with medium volatility. The maximum win on offer is 1,800x your stake and is available to play at Wild Wins.
