Thor’s Lightning

Thor’s Lightning by Red Tiger utilises a unique mechanic where rather than forming paylines, you’ll form clusters of identical symbols to earn wins. The Viking-themed video slot has multiple bonus features, like the Chain Reaction feature, where the Nordic symbols guide you towards the bonus games.

Thor’s Lightning slot: tips

If matching symbols land horizontally or vertically adjacent to one another they form a cluster, and a cluster of five or more identical symbols creates a win! Unlike traditional slots, these winning combinations don’t need to begin at the leftmost reel – a cluster can form in any position. Five symbols are the minimum required for a win, while the biggest prizes are awarded for clusters of 40 symbol positions or more. Your prize for a winning cluster is the specific payout value of the symbol multiplied by your total stake.

Thor’s Lightning winning symbols

Payout values differ based on how many symbols form the winning cluster. There are different values for clusters of 5+, 7+, 9+, 11+, 15+, 20+, 30+, and 40+. Only high value symbols are able to form clusters of 40 or more. The lowest win amount for a cluster of 30+ is 10x your total stake, while the highest possible symbol win awards 500x your stake for landing 40 or more hammer symbols.

Thor’s Lightning special features

Whenever you land a winning cluster in Thor’s Lightning, a Chain Reaction will occur and the winning cluster will disappear from the reels, with new symbols falling into their place from above, potentially creating new wins within the same game round.

Thor may arrive on-screen to activate random features during the base game. If he summons lightning, then all low-paying symbols will be removed from the reels, or random symbols will be transformed into either new ones of the same type or into wilds. If Thor throws his hammer, it will remove a random number of 2x2 symbols and replace them with high-paying symbols, or it will nudge random reels or rows if doing so will form a new win.

The nine central tiles of the reel set are inactive as you begin the game. You’ll need to land winning clusters adjacent to these tiles in order to unlock them. If you break all eight outer tiles in one single Chain Reaction, you’ll be awarded either Valhalla Free Spins or Muspell Free Spins.

In Valhalla Free Spins, all tiles will be removed and replaced by golden shields. Any golden shield that lands on the reels locks in place for the remainder of the bonus. At the end of the bonus, each shield will reveal a random stake multiplier.

In Muspell Free Spins, all low-paying symbols will be removed from the reels. This mode also includes two additional bonus features that can trigger at random; Lava Flow and Lava Shower. Lava Flow creates identical symbols on connected reels, while Lava Showers fall onto the reels to destroy one or more types of symbol before a free respin occurs.
