How to Play

Playing Thunderstruck – Wild Lightning isn’t too different from most other slot games. All you have to do is click on the circle with two revolving arrows, which will spin each of the reels once you’ve placed your stake.

In terms of layout, the game is straightforward; you’ll see four rows and five reels. To win on any given spin, you’ll need to match anywhere between three and five symbols starting from the left of your screen.

If you’ve already had a sneak peek at Thunderstruck – Wild Lightning, you might have noticed that the reels can sometimes light up in bright balls with numbers.

This is the Link&Win feature, and each ball has its own cash value that is clearly marked. To activate Link&Wiin, you’ll need to get six of the same symbol on any reel.

Symbols

Thunderstruck – Wild Lightning uses symbols based on Old Norse mythology.

The highest-paying regular symbol is the orange world stone, which will trigger a win of 1.5, 5, or 25 times your stake – depending on whether you match three, four, or five in a row.

The yellow world stone pays 1, 3, or 15 times your stake, while the blue world stone triggers 0.9, 2 or 6 times the amount.

Purple is the lowest-paying world stone, paying out 0.8, 2, or 5 times your stake.

Besides the world stones, you’ll also find several rune symbols. Each of these pays less, with K and A paying 0.5, 1, or 3 times your stake. Q and J pay 0.3x, 0.8x, or 2.5x, while 9 and 10 pay 0.2x, 0.6x, or 2x.
