Lightening may not strike twice but thunder is another story. One of my go-to online casinos is Ladbrokes. I like to visit the Great Hall of Spins in Thunderstruck II. Armed with just £20 it was a race against the storm.
Thunderstruck II rates high on my list of Microgaming slot games. In my experience, the reels tend to pay out pretty well and the bonuses are even better. I have had my share of bad luck with this slot but my overall player experience has been good. With 243 ways to win, you can’t go wrong. To be honest there are some wins that I can’t even identify but that’s part of the fun. I just stare at the screen in awe. I gave up trying to figure out the pay lines though long ago.
Sometimes a small bankroll can be my worst enemy. I tend to set my bet way too low to play longer. This time I wagered 0.90 per spin and prayed for a nice win. I had some £5 - £10 wins but my bankroll was down to about £5 pretty quickly when all of a sudden the thunder began to roll. At one point I hit 5 Thor symbols for £61.50. The next spin triggered the Wild Storm which turned the first two reels wild but the remaining reels were no good.
With my balance now up to £125 I started to think about cashing out but not yet. C’mon, I’m a gambler. You know how it is! I had to see what more I could do but I promised myself that I wouldn’t let my balance drop below £100. That was my limit. Now down to £108 I was beginning to hear the faint sound of sad violins. Hindsight is 20/20. I started to think I should’ve taken the £125 and ran. I began a series of free spins with high hopes and let me tell you, they were beyond stingy.
The storm was passing in my neck of the woods but I made it through with £83 in profits.
