The Day of the Dead is one of the strangest and most unique festivals in the world. You’ll witness people dressing up as corpses and celebrating the memory of their loved ones. And it is no surprise that it was born in Mexico, one of the most unique cultures in the world. Now the developers at Thunderkick have channelled the uniqueness of this festival into an exciting slots game that is anything but dead.
What’s in a Name?
The great Shakespeare once wondered ‘what’s in a name?’ Well, with such an exotic name for a video slot – Esqueleto Explosivo – we can say for sure that the title creates a rich first impression. But does this slot go beyond shallow first impressions?
The developers have indeed channelled the uniqueness of the Day of the Dead festival through its graphic design. If you have any doubt about the theme of the game, this will be instantly removed when you look at the welcome screen, which features colourful skulls with a myriad of expressions.
Deadly Visual Design
The game itself is set in what looks to be a dark alley. You have dimly lit candles, photographs, flowers and food offered for the deceased. Against this backdrop the reels of Esqueleto Explosivo truly come alive in a grand manner.
Coloured skulls sitting atop skeletons are the icons that literally dangle on the reels. The good news is that they are on your side and want you to win big. The animation here goes a notch higher with the skulls bursting into song every time there is a win.
Just like the festival’s colourful death-inspired entertainment, the deathly character in the game will have a hold on you with their special rewards. The gameplay should attract players new to video slots. Esqueleto Explosivo features 17 pay lines that enable you to easily navigate the bet options. Then there are multipliers and Wilds that allow you to boost your wins. The gold skull is the most attractive Wild, and it wipes out all the other skulls. You can then form higher combinations.
Esqueleto Explosivo is a unique slot experience that must be experienced to be believed.
