Exploding skulls, singing mariachi skeletons and the occasional appearance from Elvis?!
It could only be Thunderkick’s weird and wonderful creation, Esqueleto Explosivo - possibly the most original video pokie we’ve ever encountered - but certainly the most loco.
Esqueleto Explosivo sets the benchmark for all aspiring game developers hoping to diversify their game portfolio in new and exciting ways. It doesn’t just take creative thinking outside of the box, it smashes it open with the help of some exploding craniums for a truly one of a kind fiesta of a video pokie.
So get ready to don your sombrero and celebrate Mexico’s Day of the Dead festivities with Wildz!
The theme of the game is unforgettable, and so too are the graphics, boasting slick 3D animations and impressive visuals.
We’re introduced to the mariachi band, each playing a different musical instrument, in some kind of courtyard presumably located in Mexico. Fireworks can be heard in the background as candles light up the night sky and lanterns hang from the townhouses. It all sounds rather serene - until the reels begin to turn!
Populating the 5x3 grid face are 5 base symbols, represented by the 5 sugar skulls that have strong connections with dia de los Muertos. These skulls all sit anywhere atop the five mariachi playing skeletons and each carry varying degrees of profitability.
As with most modern online pokies, lining up 3 identical symbols is how you score yourself a win, and these combos must be made in a left to right direction across any of the 17 paylines in play.
Once you hit spin, the game’s Cascading Reels mechanism sees all skeleton symbols fall from view; their vacant places occupied by new ones dropping from above. The mechanism can be found in other fan favourites such as Gonzo’s Quest, and is a major draw that ramps up your win potential nicely.
Hope to catch some lucrative Pink Skull symbols, as these are worth 2.5x your bet whenever five appear across a payline, while the coolest skull in town, the Yellow Skull, acts as the Explosivo Wild.
In typical fashion, the Explosivo Wild will substitute for all other symbols to boost your chances of a win. But that’s not all he can do. He’ll also blow up the 8 closest symbols whenever he shows up, themselves replaced by new ones to help create more winning opportunities.
There are no free spins in the offing here, but there is the Mucho Multiplier feature. Once you’ve landed a winning combo, additional successive wins will double a multiplier value all the way up to a possible 32x for 6 straight wins.
Esqueleto Explosivo on Mobile
Thunderkick have ensured no-one gets to miss out on this genuinely unique video pokie, optimising the game for most mobile and tablet operating systems. Fire up the pokie out and about or lounging about to enjoy its unique concept and first rate animations.
In truth, this game has been designed to appeal to swathes of casual slot players - those seeking an augmented playing experience without the lure of a supersized jackpot or free spins. That point is only reinforced by its low/medium volatility rating.
Nowadays, there’s a game type on the market to suit all players, and plenty others on offer at Wildz catering sufficiently to the high roller crowd.
Esqueleto Explosivo is perfect for anyone wanting to win a few bucks, if not life-changing, trying out something new.
Esqueleto Explosivo represents a truly outstanding effort on the part of content providers Thunderkick, one that is guaranteed to you have chuckling at the humourous theme executed with aplomb.
It doesn’t come with a progressive jackpot, or even free spins, but singing skeletons, Muchos Multiplier feature and the chance to bank some moderate sized wins easily make up for this. In addition, the Cascading Reels mechanism is something you don’t find in every pokie, marking a refreshing shift away from conventional game engines.
Most modern day pokie themes can be considered cliched or recycled, and simply don’t offer much in terms of innovation or original thinking. That can’t be said of Esqueleto Explosivo, which experiments with a somewhat off the wall theme, and produces something truly magnificent. Join the Esqueleto Explosivo fiesta today today at Wildz to score some sweet wins of your own. You won’t be left disappointed!
