How to Play
The slot has 5 reels with 5 rows and variable ways to win. Before you spin the reels, you need to set your bet using the ‘Total Bet’ control underneath the reels. When you are happy with your bet just click on the spin button to start the reels. There is also autoplay functionality and a turbo mode to speed things up.
You win payouts by landing enough matching symbols from left to right along consecutive reels starting from the leftmost reel. To help you form more wins Thor’s hammer is the wild symbol, and it will substitute for all of the other symbols, except for the bonus symbol, to help and form winning combinations.
Bonus Games and Features
Each spin of the reels has the potential to trigger the lightning feature. When you start playing, you will see that many of the reel positions are frozen in blocks of ice and the game has just 45 ways to win. These blocks of ice are removed with each consecutive spin and that way increase the number of ways to win. After the first win the reels will have 135 ways to win, after the second consecutive win there will be 405 ways to win, the third win results in 675 ways to win, the next has 1,125 ways to win and after six consecutive wins, you will have a massive 3,125 ways to win. It is also possible to climb a level by landing two bonus symbols.
When three, four or five Yggdrasil scatter symbols land anywhere on the reels you are awarded 8, 20 or 50 free spins respectively. If you land just two more scatter symbols during the free spins then you will receive an additional two free spins and unlock more ways to win. Better yet, during the free spins, the number of ways to win does not decrease if you fail to land a win, making it easier to unlock all 3,125 ways to win. Not only can the free spins be retriggered indefinitely, but also when they end, the unlocked ways to win will be carried back to the main game.
Ways of Thunder is linked to two progressive jackpots and the jackpot game can be triggered by any spin, regardless of what symbols land or what you are betting. The jackpots up for grabs are the Ultimate Jackpot and the Extra Jackpot. The Extra Jackpot will be won before the amount shown, and the Ultimate Jackpot is the larger of the two and it can be won at any time.
The slot offers a top regular payout of 400x for landing six Thor symbols across a payline. The Frost Monster can payout up to 250x, the wolf up to 250x, the ravens up to 150x and the snake up to 150x. All of the rune symbols can payout up to 80x.
