Not sure if anyone else is having the same run of bad luck on one of my fav slots.
I have played this game quite a lot at a couple of different casino's and not hit the bonus once.
The game paid so so in normal game play but no bonus and also no random wild either.

Stated several times on here that this game has been dead for 15+ mths, especially at 32Red, had a few £100 withdrawals, but nothing worthy of note.

Seem to hit the bonus, get around £20-30 then every single bonus round gets significantly worse until I bust out, I have just stopped playing it and started bashing IR as every session is predictably the same on that game. Horrendous.

The game just seems like some sort of cash cow, was saying the same just the other day funnily enough.

I actually got a few decent hits on the free spins on several casino's,but nothing major.
Especially sh*t storm never gave me more then 2 wild reels.
I have better stats on IR and TFROL and even Girls with Guns and Dr Watts Up with some good 1000x+ stake wins.
I think my best on TSII,out of my head,was around 600x stake on the 10 free spins x5 multiplier. :)

But yeah have to agree that TSII seems a bit tighter then his other 243 liner companions.

Yeah, I played quite a lot of Thunderstruck 2 in Unibet's downloadable casino a few years ago (not sure if they still have it) but I gave up after clearing all the different bonus games. I just couldn't get ahead and the bonus games became worse and worse. It just didn't matter what bonus I chose, just free spins after free spins with no payout. It almost seems like it's easier to win big during the regular game. It was fun for a while, no doubt, but there are better slots out there now, both from Microgaming and NetEnt.

You almost got me tempted to try again, but after my final run I promised my self to keep away ;)

I totally agree. but i noticed the biggest difference right after Avalon II went live, no doubt a coincidence, but still...

I've had 1000+ spins between bonuses, and wins of less than 10x stake from the bonus

It also seems to be tightest on quickfire, rather than on the 'downloaded' casinos, for some reason.

although, i must admit i did manage to get 5 scatters yesterday at CasinoEuro, which paid £60, But the bonus round from those 5 scatters only paid an extra £2 !!!

But on the other hand, 'Playboy' has become a lot more generous towards me since TSII went cold

Well I will have to disagree with you all, I am getting a good run of luck over the last few weeks ON TS2 at various casinos. 5 withdrawals last weekend, two yesterday.....just put another one in tonight. Profit is now running into a couple of 000. Can't deposit at the moment though as Neteller seems to have gone AWOL. Several weeks ago I posted a screenshot showing a 480x free spin return. Thunderstorm though has been disappointing, have never had more than 2 wilds and getting lots of zero returns on it.

I must admit, as you achieve all the bonus unlocks on TSII the bonus rounds seem to 'mature' and the variance on them gets less - just 'flat' rounds between 5-40X stake mostly, whichever bonus you choose. The big ones seem more pronounced at the beginning. Just my opinion......

Loki is the highest variance bonus round, it can *potentially* fill the whole screen with wilds (I remember reading that it happened to someone here, apparently).

Yes TS2 is some tight slot! :eek2: I've also noticed it's tighter on Quickfire. I'm so happy I quit playing those terrible MG slots. Sometimes I'll play a NDB and just get served with a reminder of the reason I stopped playing them...

I've noticed on Quickfire it's just empty spin after empty spin without a 5OAK anywhere to be had. Then when the feature finally decides to drop in it returns less than 10x the bet rinse and repeat and playing this game (or these games) gets to be a rather tedious task. I won $1.85 on my last feature suffice it to say I won't even touch this game even with a NDB.

I hope that your next feature returns a huge win :)

This game has been bad for a few months now, I also seem to find that I don't win anything in the first 10 spins

In my head
Hi I have been having a good run on both TS2 and IR in the last 3 months. Nothing major mind you but I did get a very unexpected 496 times bet on 0.30 on the Odin feature. Yesterday I got some decent wins once or twice over the 100x stake on TS2, I also got quite a few wild desires on IR on had 3 wheels wild but paid zero and I got three wilds again a second time which paid out 120x my bet. It helped me meet wagering and cashout a little profit from Casino La Vida. So I guess it ebbs and flows. I did find TS2 and IR dead for the last three months of 2013 so I stopped playing those games for a while. Now I am careful because I know if you hit a dead patch your bankroll can go south fast so I just do 50 or so spins and if it doesn't look good I will move on. Now I wish I could do the same with Avalon II (I love to hate that slot). Plus I find I do better when I am wagering 0.60 to 0.90 a spin on TS2 and IR for some reason. Every time I raise my bet higher I get dead patches. I find this very interesting.
