For any players unfamiliar with the spanish language, Esqueleto Explosivo directly translates to exploding skeletons, providing a quirky name to accompany the game’s theme.
Esqueleto Explosivo is based on the Mexican holiday known as Day of the Dead that celebrates the death of close relatives. This flat-top video slot game has been released by growing developers, Thunderkick, and displays an attractive combination of top quality, colorful graphics with noteworthy gameplay and bonus features.
Played over 5 reels and 17 paylines, Esqueleto Explosivo includes the likes of wilds, multipliers and exploding symbols, giving all players extra opportunity to bring in some substantial prizes.
Theme and Design
As briefly mentioned before, Esqueleto Explosivo is centred around Day of the Dead, displaying a light-hearted and creative take on the Mexican holiday. Gaming action therefore takes place in the middle of a town square hosting Enrico Mortis and his mariachi band, The Boners.
Each band member sits, instrument in hand, surrounded by pictures of deceased loved ones and flickering candles. Above each band member are 3 skull symbols, composing the Australian gambling online’s reels, and with each spin they proceed to roll forward to make room for more to drop from above.
Gameplay proves just as creative in many aspects, with winning combinations further highlighting Esqueleto Explosivo slot’s steady theme and causing the members of the band to sing out in tune. It is thus a player’s aim to get as many winning combinations as possibly to truly hear the sweet sounds of the band.
The action buttons needed to control the game can all be found at the bottom of the screen and include a menu button to view game rules and the paytable, place bets, spin the reels and more. The bets range from as little as 0.10 to as much as 100.00 coins, meaning the Esqueleto Explosivo slots accommodate most player levels.
Esqueleto Explosivo Symbols
There are as little as 5 basic symbols in the Esqueleto Explosivo slot games, each of which can be identified by its difference in colour. These 5 symbols could essentially be broken down into 2 parts, namely higher and lower value symbols.
The higher value symbols are represented by pink, green and dark blue skulls, while the lower value symbols can be recognised as the orange and turquoise skulls. Additionally, the game has a bonus wild symbol displaying an explosive sunglasses-wearing orange skull.
Esqueleto Explosivo Dropping Symbols
Thunderkick generally refers to this feature as dropping symbols, however it is exactly the same as the commonly used cascading symbols found in many other contemporary slot games.
This feature essentially removes the symbols that complete a winning combination to make room for more symbols and another possible win. In Esqueleto Explosivo, much like the name dictates, the skulls will sing their tune, explode and make room for more.
With each consecutive win, players will be rewarded with a climb in the multiplier ladder below the reels, with the multiplier starting at 1x and moving up to a maximum of as much as 32x.
