Embark on an epic journey into Norse mythology on the slot from Red Tiger Gaming and summon Thor to unlock the free spins symbol at the centre of the 7×7 game grid. Cascading symbol drops, two random features and two bonus rounds – Valhalla Free Spins or Muspell Free Spins – will let you score wins of up to 1,800 times your bet.
Thor’s Lightning is a 7×7 grid slot with cascading symbols drops and cluster pays. A minimum of five adjacent symbols are needed to score a win. Bet sizes range from 0.20 to 40 credits. The RTP of this medium variance game is set in the range of 96%. It is available for play on desktop, mobile and tablet. Autoplay will allow you to set up 10 to 100 consecutive spins with a range of options when the run should stop.
Open the game to find yourself in the midst of a rugged Nordic winter scene with the mighty hammer of Thor and rune covered stones surrounding the giant 7×7 game window, where more traditional Norse symbols can be found. A heroic soundtrack and utterly dramatic thumps when Thor’s hammer is called to action complete a stunning slot creation.
You will find nine regular symbols and one wild symbol on Thor’s Lightning. At the low end are four smaller rune stones, followed by four battle masks and Thor’s hammer. The latter is the most valuable with 25x bet for a cluster of 40 symbols. The wild symbol substitutes for all symbols. There are not scatters on this game as the free spins are triggered by unlocking the 9-symbol block in the middle of the game grid.
Cascading Symbol Drop Explained
Thor’s Lightning does not have spinning reels, instead, symbols drop in a cascade onto the 7×7 grid. A winning combination is removed and new symbols fall in place. This continues until now new wins occur after a fresh drop. Unlocking the centre section of nine symbols in one sequence will trigger the free spins.
Thor’s Lightning Random Features
Two random feature will help you on your Nordic quest to score more and bigger wins. They can be triggered at the start of a new game round in the base game and will apply reel modifiers to the current symbol drop
- Lightning Strike – Thor will summon a lightning strike to remove lower value symbols from the grid or transform a random number of symbols into one symbol, including the wild.
- Hammer Strike – Thor will throw his hammer onto the reels to nudge or remove symbols and lead to potentially a new win.
Thor’s Lightning Free Spins Features
At the centre of the game grid is a locked block of nine symbols which will trigger the free spins if it is completely uncovered in a single game round. Winning combinations landing adjacent will unlock it progressively. Once triggered, players can choose from two free spins options:
- Valhalla Free Spins – during the feature, the reels are made up entirely of blanks and golden shield symbols. Once the free spins are completed, all the shields in view are flipped to reveal a bet multiplier. They will be added to give the total bet multiplier and win for the round.
- Muspell Free Spins – all low-value symbols are removed from the reels for the duration of the feature. Spins are played with the same cluster mechanic as in the base game. A Lava Shower can randomly activate to remove one or more symbols for a free respin. In turn, the Lava Flow feature creates matching symbols on connected reels to guarantee a win.
