There are 99 connecting pay ways and a tumbling feature. This fun and unique sequel will cheer you up with its skeleton mariachi band. It offers much higher win potential than the first slot and multiplier reaching to x64 in free spins.
The sequel of Esqueleto Explosivo has 5 reels 3 rows too and 99 connecting pay ways. You will win for 3 to 5 matching symbols or with the help of wilds on adjacent reels horizontally or diagonally. Play with wagers from 0.10 to 100 credits this high volatility slot. Its RTP is 96.13%.
Thunderkick retained the gameplay and rules and added a few extra features to the sequel. Instead of 17 fixed pay-lines, the second part has 99 connecting pay ways. Thus, players have more chances to score wins. The tumbling symbol mechanic is kept – 15 symbols again drop on every spin. The jackpot in the slot is 5,000 times your stake – £500,000 at the most.
The reels are set in a typical village square. An altar is prepared on the background for the celebration. The reels are frameless as is the game window. The altar is made of flowers, food, drinks and plenty of candles. Like in the first part, the sequel also has various sugar or clay skulls. The decorated ‘Calaveras’ in this hilarious slot are here too.
The symbols land over the skeleton mariachi band of musicians. On the bottom of the screen, you will see the multiplier trail that activates upon scoring a win. The skulls are detailed, original and ensure a colourful commemoration of the departed. The game design is unique and resembles very much to the first slot.
The paying symbols aren’t changed much and there is only one new addition. Thunderkick includes several new features and improvements in the follow-up. The regular symbols are colourfully decorated skulls. These are traditionally used in the Dia de Muertos celebrations.
The turquoise, orange, blue, green and red skulls have values from 0.7 to 2.5 times your stake respectively for 5 of a kind. The new symbol here is a hooded female skull paying 5 times your stake for 5 in a combination. This is the top player
Again the golden skull with the large sunglasses is the Explosivo Wild that lands on reels 2, 3 and 4 only. It substitutes for all missing regular symbols. The scatter is a robotic skull with red gems for eyes and a key coming out of its ear.
The new feature is the 99 connecting pay ways. When you match 3 or more symbols horizontally or diagonally you win. The tumbling symbols mechanism is kept – at the start of a spin sequence 15 symbols drop from above. The winning combinations’ symbols explode and make space for new ones to pop. This goes on as long as there are more wins.
The Explosivo Wild is a special symbol not only substituting for regular symbols. It also explodes all symbols positioned in direct touch with it except other wilds and the high-value skull. According to its position, the wild may explode from 3 to 8 symbols. This is very beneficial especially on losing spins. Exploding symbols trigger a reaction and a new cascade. It can result in a new winning combination. Moreover, the wild explosion increases the win multiplier to the next value on the trail.
Another significant feature that ensures you higher wins is the Mucho Multiplier trail. You see it on the bottom of the screen. Its starting value is x1 and progresses to x2, x4, x8, x16 and peaking at x32 in the base game. During free spins, it can reach its maximum of x64. The multiplier increases one step with each cascade made in a spin or as a result of landing a wild. On the end of a spin sequence, the win multiplier resets to x1.
The peak of the colourful and hilarious celebration is the Free Spins feature. Land 3, 4 or 5 scatters in a single spin no matter where on the grid to activate it. The ratio free spins to scatters are as follows:
You can re-trigger the feature by landing 2 to 5 scatters during free spins and get from 3 to 12 extra free spins. Here the Explosivo Wilds play a special role. It advances the win multiplier to the trail and explodes the symbols around it. Now you will collect wilds. Once you gather 3 wilds, shown in the counter below, you will receive an additional free spin. Also, the 3 wilds will remove the lowest multiplier value from the trail.
Thus, you will start the next spin sequence with x2 multiplier instead of x1. In the next stage of collecting 3 more wilds, you will have removed the x2 multiplier. Thus, you will start the following spin with x4. When you reach the x32 as a base multiplier, you will unlock the x64 multiplier. In such a case you will be awarded a final extra free spin.
Even if you didn’t like the original slot, Esqueleto Explosivo 2 has the potential to win you over. Besides being amusing, the game offers higher payouts than the original. This is thanks to the extra premium symbol, the 99 pay ways and up to x64 multiplier. The jackpot in the slot is 5,000 times your stake which is more than a decent prize. Wait for this reel celebration to start on January 22, and have a great time playing it.
