Red Tiger Teases New Thor’s Lightning Pokie

Deanna Hammes - 20-02-2019

Thor’s Lightning PokieThor is no stranger to anyone familiar with the film and entertainment scene. The infamous hammer-swinging god of war has starred in the lead-role of blockbuster shows, movies and books. And now, thanks to the creative minds at Red Tiger Gaming and their having flung about some of their own special design-magic, the Norse deity has just become the superstar of his very own pokie.

Red Tiger Gaming’s new Thor’s Lightning pokie will be hitting operator’s platforms soon, having been slated for release by the developer on February 21st. The pokie is chock-a-block with interesting special features; with every last element of the game rooted in popular Norse mythology. It’s obvious that this title isn’t a willy-nilly combination of half-baked ideas that have been sucked from a very bored developer’s thumb.

Someone at Red Tiger Gaming has been doing quite a bit of homework!

Behold The Lightning Strikes!

Thor is one of the gods of war and is traditionally recognised as the god of lightning, which ties in quite nicely with the name of the game. And then of course there’s the Lightning Strikes feature; another add-on that fits nicely into the general theme and culture of the pokie.  

The grid is a very pleasing-to-the-eye 7 reels x 7 rows in extent and Thor is constantly on the lookout to do his bit by riling up the forces of nature and doing his lightning tricks on the reels. This unleashes a very special occurrence as just as soon as lightning strikes, all of the lower-paying symbols end up falling away from the reels, to be replaced either by higher-paying symbols or by wilds.

Whichever way, it’s a win-win situation!

Bonus Rounds And More

Valhalla Spins and Muspell Spins are the pokies two bonus rounds. Both of these are absolute moneymaking fests. When Valhalla Spins is in play, the bonus spins are activated by the golden shield symbol. The shields are very rewarding and will lock into place on the reels. These award massive multipliers throughout the course of the feature, with the total winnings added to the grand total just as soon as the bonus game is wrapped up.

Muspell Spins contains a special lava feature. The lava flows over the reels and melts away all of the lower-paying symbols, leaving only the higher paying symbols in play. There are no wilds this time round, but the possibilities for massive wins remain endless.

But what about Thor and his hammerly-charm? Well, he certainly doesn’t aim to disappoint. All throughout the game, Thor will randomly throw his hammer at the reels, knocking away at lower-value symbols and in some cases even nudging the reels and the symbols so that more combinations can be completed.

We Thor-oughly enjoyed the teaser and can’t wait to play the game!
