Thunderstruck Stormchaser Slot Review 2024

Thunderstruck Stormchaser and previous Thunderstruck Games are somewhat of a Games Global staple.

Thunderstruck was given to the trusted and capable hands of Stormcraft Studios in their previous release, Thunderstruck Wild Lightning, and Thunderstruck Stormchaser marks the fifth in the series.

Stormcraft Studios put a lot of resource into making Thunderstruck look as good as it can possibly look, and may we say, Thunderstruck Stormchaser looks as gorgeous as we’d expect. Does the gameplay of Thudnerstruck Stormchaser compliment its beautiful graphics to make it the full package?

Let’s head to Asgard with our favourite Norse Gods to find out.

Thunderstruck Stormchaser Base Game

Thunderstruck Stormchaser Base Game and Features

Thunderstruck Stormchaser is a 5 reel slot with 1,024 ways to win. Winning combinations are formed when 3 or more of the same symbol types land from left to right, starting from the left-most reel.

The minimum bet available to players is £/€0.20 per spin and the maximum bet available is £/€25 per spin, with plenty of other betting options in between the two. Looking at statistics, Thunderstruck Stormchaser has a theoretical RTP of 96.10% and a maximum win capacity of 10,200x.

Thunderstruck Stormchaser features Cascading Reels. Each time a winning combination is formed, all winning symbols will be removed from the reels and new symbols will drop down from above, filling all empty positions. Once a cascade occurs, there is a chance that more winning combinations will form.

Multiplier Symbols

During the base game, Multiplier symbols with values of x2, x3, x4, x5, x6, x7, x8, x9, x10, x15 and x20 can land randomly across the reels.

Each Mutliplier symbol that appears will be applied to any winning combinations after the Cascading Reels sequence has finished for that particular spin.

Wildstorm Feature

Randomly in the base game, the Wildstorm Feature can trigger.

Once this happens, a Free Spin is awarded which can transform up to 5 reels into stacked Wilds.

Thunderstruck Stormchaser Free Spins

Landing 3 or more Scatters in any position across the reels, automatically triggers the Free Spins round.

Once active, you will be met with a Free Spins Wheel which will award a random amount of Free Spins and a starting Multiplier. The size of the Multiplier and the total number of Free Spins increases with the number of Scatters that landed during the initial trigger.

  • 3 Scatter Trigger – Awards between 7 and 12 Free Spins and a starting Multiplier of either x1, x2, x3, x4, x5 or x6.
  • 4 Scatter Trigger – Awards between 10 and 15 Free Spins and a starting Multiplier of either x3, x4, x5, x6, x8 or x9.
  • 5 Scatter Trigger – Awards between 15 and 25 Free Spins and a starting Multiplier of either x5, x6, x8, x9, 10 or x12.

During the Free Spins round, Thor has the power to increase the value of Multiplier symbols by a random amount.  Please note that the total win Mutliplier is only applied to wins when a Multiplier symbol is visible on the reel set.

Landing 3 or more Scatters during this round will award an additional +5 Free Spins. In addition to this, each time a Scatter symbols lands in view it will award +1 Wildstorm Token.

Once 12 or more Wildstorm Tokens are collected, the Wildstorm feature will activate at the end of the Free Spins round.

Once the Bonus Buy option is available, Stormcraft Studios has granted players access to the Free Spins round for a total cost of 50x your current bet.

Thunderstruck Stormchaser: Our Verdict

Thunderstruck isn’t quite Thunderstruck without its Wildstorm feature, and thankully its present here.

Making it a feature capable of activating within the Base Game really boosts the appeal of Thunderstruck Stormchaser. Much like a storm itself, Thunderstruck Stormchaser can just roll in and explode at any moment with ferocious intensity. It’s definitely a beloved feature of the Thunderstruck series, and we’re hoping Stormcraft realises it enough to never remove it in potential games yet to come.

The Wildstorm feature can trigger at the end of Free Spins too, tokens permitted. The Free Spins round with its multipliers is exciting enough on its own, but a Wildstorm to round it off really is the chefs kiss.

The Thunderstruck series really has to be appreciated for what it is, and its legacy is understated. The Thunderstruck series is one of the veterans of igaming with its long history, and the way Stormcraft Studios nurtures it really makes it a piece of art in our eyes.

Perhaps we’re romanticising the Thunderstruck series too much, but we appreciate its history a lot, and we appreciate where it is now even more.
