A mobile slots player was celebrating a huge win this week after triggering a jackpot worth $330,360 on Thunderstruck at All Jackpots Casino.
The winner, identified as Peter G, was playing on the Microgaming-developed slot at the mobile casino when he won the massive jackpot sum that is one of the largest ever recorded wins on a mobile slot.
The win came as such a surprise to Peter that even after the pay out was confirmed on his mobile device he did not believe he had won. It was only when a representative from All Jackpots Casino contacted him to verify his personal details that reality set in for Peter.
Thunderstruck is a 5 reel, 9 payline slot with a theme based on Norse mythology. Symbols across the reels include Thor’s hammer, a hunting horn, a bolt of lightning, the castle of Asgard, and the regular 9-through-to-Ace symbols.
In order to trigger the jackpot prize, players must trigger the free spins bonus round by hitting three or more ram Scatters across the reels. Players will then be awarded 15 free spins with a 3x multiplier. During the free spins, if the player manages to hit five Thor Wilds across the reels then the jackpot is triggered.
Thunderstruck proved to be such a successful slot for Microgaming that it not only became one of the developer’s flagship titles but it also inspired the launch of a sequel in the form of Thunderstruck II.
