2/8/10 – Developed in-house and launched in 2003, the multi-featured video slot Thunderstruck is generally regarded as one of online gambling software provider Microgaming's top games…and the good news is that there's more to come.
After previewing a sequel titled Thunderstruck 2 at the recent ICEi show in London, the Isle of Man software provider has announced that it will launch the new game a little later this (2010) year.
The announcement notes that careful and player-sensitive decisions were made in the development process to ensure the sequel remains true to the essence of the game’s unique brand and personality.

Company spokesmen said that the player experience is taken to an entirely new level through the introduction of vibrant hand painted graphics, an epic musical score and a gallery of special features that will appeal to a wide demographic of players. The game will be available with an increased screen resolution of up to 1024 x 768 to optimise the user experience, and will also allow players to enjoy running four other casino games concurrently through multiple, tabulated in-client functions. This personalises player experience by giving the player the ability to prioritise and keep pages open within the casino, whilst simultaneously playing their favourite games.
Roger Raatgever, CEO Microgaming said this week: “We are truly excited about the release of the sequel to the hugely popular Thunderstruck video slot. The quality of graphics and special features are already looking out of this world! We are extremely proud of the brands that we have developed ourselves; Thunderstruck is a prime example of this. The game will contain unrivalled graphics, innovative game play and the best possible user experience, with an optimal screen resolution of 1024 x 768. We expect to see the same level of success from the sequel as we did from the original.”
