Microgaming Announces Thunderstruck2

The competition in the online slots game space is becoming more intense. Microgaming is feeling the heat from its rivals. Within a few days of announcing forthcoming branded slots based on The Lord of the Rings, Microgaming has announced another iconic release. This is a sequel to Thunderstruck, which though not a "branded" slot game has become a brand in itself. Thunderstruck was released in 2003 and remains one of the most popular Microgaming online slots games even today. Looking at the audiovisual effects embodied in Thunderstruck it is difficult to say that this game is almost 7 years old. The sequel to Thunderstruck will be released in 2010 and will be called Thunderstruck2.

It is not going to be easy to match the awesome beauty of Thunderstruck, but apparently Microgaming's development team has been working tirelessly so as to ensure that Thunderstruck2 is not a let down. The Microgaming press release says that the player experience will be taken to an entirely new level through the introduction of beautiful hand painted graphics, an epic musical score, innovative game play and a host of special features that will appeal to a wide demographic of players. At the same time care will be taken to ensure that the "personality" of Thunderstruck is retained.

The Microgaming press release describes some the new features in the upgrade that will accompany the release of Thunderstruck2. The maximum screen resolution will be increased to 1024 x 768 and this will optimize the user experience. The upgrade will allow players to run Thunderstruck2 concurrently with four other casino games through multiple, tabulated in-client functions. This customization will allow players to prioritize and keep pages open within the casino while playing their favorite games.

Roger Raatgever, Chief Executive Officer of Microgaming said, "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. "We expect to see the same level of success from the sequel, as we did from the original."

Thunderstruck has as its theme Thor, the Norse god of Thunder. The imposing figure of Thor with his hair flowing in the stormy winds and lightning flashing from his eyes dominates the reels. Thunderstruck also comes with a special interface when used in online slots tournaments. This slot game can be played at all Microgaming online casinos like Platinum Play, All Slots, Roxy Palace, Spin Palace and Jackpot City. Soon Thunderstruck2 will follow suit.

The first version of Thunderstruck was a huge hit and I know that I'm definitely one of those players that seems to gravitate towards this game as well as the Tomb Raider slots games that they offer. I'm sure that they'll do an amazing job with the next release and version of this game.

Should be a really great game I'm interested in checking out and playing it once they release it.
