21 Thor Lightning Ways Gameplay
21 Thor Lightning Ways is a Viking-themed video slot by 4ThePlayer, and the first to feature Lightning Ways. Electrify five-of-a-kind wins along specially selected paylines charged with random win multipliers of up to x100 on every spin. Crash into the free spins round for a storm of Lightning Ways with increasing multipliers for thunderous results.
- Lightning Ways: Special paylines with multipliers from 5x to 100x that multiply wins accordingly
- Lightning Strike: Creates multiple Lightning Ways at random
- Thunder Free Spins: A round of free spins with extra Lightning Ways and special features
A basic spin of 21 Thor Lightning Ways will see you match three or more symbols on consecutive reels starting from the leftmost for a win. In addition, at least one Lightning Way occurs on each spin. A Lightning Way is an electrified payline assigned a multiplier from 5x to 100x. Wins formed along a Lightning Way are multiplied as a result. Accentuating the Lightning Ways effect, Thor can randomly cast a Lightning Strike feature onto a spin, and create several Lightning Ways.
Five-of-a-kind 10, J, Q, K and A, award 0.5x to 0.7x your bet. Next are the Viking horn and twin-axe symbols, awarding 1x bet for matching five. They are followed by the longboat and Asgard symbols, which pay from 1.5x to 2x your bet for matching five. Lastly, matching five Sif or Thor character symbols will pay 3x or 5x your stake, respectively. Wild symbols substitute for others in winning combos and the bonus scatter triggers free spins for landing three or more.
Three, four or five bonus scatters trigger 15, 20 and 30 Thunder Free Spins, respectively. At the start of the bonus, Thor activates several Lightning Ways. In addition, Thor can add extra Lightning Ways at any time, and every win that occurs on a Lightning Way increases its attached win multiplier. What’s more, the Lightning Strike feature can occur at random on any free spin, and you can earn an extra five free spins by landing three bonus scatters.
Selected jurisdictions can access special game features by using the Bonus Buy function. On 21 Thor Lightning Ways, there are four options for a fixed price based on bet multiplier:
- 15 Thunder Spins | 50x Bet
- 20 Thunder Spins | 100x Bet
- 30 Thunder Spins | 150x Bet
- Lightning Strike Spin | 25x Bet: A spin with the Lightning Strike feature
