Thunderstruck Megaways™ Slot
We’ve already discussed the possibility of saturation from Megaways™ games, and it appears Blueprint is determined to get as many games out there as possible before we all give up after repeated futile tries to complete a session with an Epic Win.
And they are winning the race as we await Red Tiger’s debut. Soon?!
In any case, we’re starting to see some fascinating variants on the traditional Megaways™ blueprint (oops!). The board game mechanism inspired WMS’ Battleship, while Relax Gaming’s Machina added excitement with upgraded Cyborg reels and Bonus Jackpots.
Now Blueprint has included a new gamble feature where you may double your wins or join an epic Mega Spins round.
Let’s find out…
Symbols and Pay Tables
A man and female fighter, enormous lightning bolts, and Thor’s hammer are all present in Lightning Strike. This one reminds me of Thunderstruck and Asgardian Stones.
This is a 6-reel Megaways game with 5-high rows on each reel for a total of 15,625 ways to win every spin.
The low value symbols are the cards 9 through Ace. The Norse fighters are the high-value symbols, paying 50x for 6 on a payline.
Watch out for the Wild (Mjolnir), which replaces all others.
It expands and triggers re-spins and multipliers, increasing the win possibilities.
Re-Spins, Wilds, and Multipliers
Wild hammer expanding reels 2-5 when it lands on them. A random multiplier will be applied now. Any further wilds on the re-spin will trigger another spin, up to four in total.
When several Yggdrasil (Tree of Life) symbols land at the same moment, they morph into similar symbols, increasing your chances of winning.
Win Mega Spins By Gambling
When you win 5x or more in Lightning Strike, you get a fantastic gamble feature. Players can wager their prize for more cash or MegaSpins. You must spin a wheel to discover if you win or lose the wager (and your earnings).
The function offers up to 100 MegaSpins. These have extra wild symbols (which increase with multipliers) and mystery symbols.
Lightning Strike Megaways is another amazing game to add to the collection. It’s excellent news that Blueprint is introducing new features to replace the tired old engine. Win gambles and increasing wilds add to the enjoyment. Remember that it has a high volatility and that epic wins are saved for the MegaSpins round, so aim to get as many of them as you can with the gamble function.
