Don’t worry if you’ve never played the original, this Esqueleto Explosivo 2 slot game manages to supersede the first in every way and more.
We should point out that we really enjoyed the original, so much so that we gave the Esqueleto Explosivo slot review 4 stars, and it was one of Thunderkick’s very first games.
When we first loaded up the Esqueleto Explosivo 2 mobile slot, we thought we’d made a mistake and it was version 1 as the graphics, sounds and animations seem identical.
You still have 5 reels with falling skeletons, heads landing on 3 rows, set against a pretty colourful Mexican town at sunset. Every cheer, guitar strum and Mariachi ‘Grito’ makes you feel the joy of entering the best fiesta of your life.
Except here, if a golden wild shows up (with his cheesy smile and cool sunglasses) he will not just replace other symbols on one of the 99 ways to pay of this Esqueleto Explosivo 2 slot. Oh no. He will act as a bomb and destroy anything from 3 to 8 extra symbols around him.
Why is this so important? Because every avalanche advances the multipliers, from 1x, to 2x, all the way to 32x the paytable amount. It can lead to some impressive wins, and we haven’t even introduced you to the free spins bonuses.
The Esqueleto Explosivo 2 slot has 99 paylines (not 17 like the original) but it has the same multipliers. That in itself would be enough to get our attention, as you simply get more wins.
Except for the sequel also has an x-factor: a free spin bonus round. It may not sound like much, but it is.
The way this works is that 3 scatters will trigger 10 free spins. For every 3 wilds you collect, one of the multipliers is removed from the avalanching sequel – so instead of starting at 1x, you start at 2x etc…
Better yet, you can unlock x64 multiplier, allowing this Esqueleto Explosivo 2 online slot to have a max win of 5,000x your bet. Not only is that huge, but with all the action in both the base game and then the free spins, this has kinetic energy that draws you in and keeps you entertained well through the night.
Just don’t start downing the Tequilas, you’ll need every brain cell to ensure a good slots strategy keeps the music chirping.

Avalanching Reels and Multipliers: On every win, the symbols will explode and more will come tumbling down from above. This will continue until no more wins are found. With every successive win, the multiplier increases - from 1x, to x2, x4, x8, x16, x32.
Connecting Ways Pays: You get a win by symbols landing in sequence, from left to right, on adjacent and connecting positions (vertical and horizontal).
Explosivo Wild Symbols: The golden skull is the wild symbols, and substitutes for all other symbols to create wins. It will also explode and remove 3 to 8 positions around it, depending on where it lands on the screen.
Scatters and Free Spins: The clockwork skull is the scatter symbol. 3, 4 or 5 scatters will trigger 10, 12 or 14 free spins, respectively.
During the bonus game spins themselves, 2 scatters will trigger an extra 3 spins, 3 scatters triggers 7 spins, 4 scatters triggers 10 spins, 5 scatters triggers 12 spins.
For every 3 wilds, you collect during the bonus game, you'll remove the lowest multiplier from the avalanching sequence, plus you'll get a +1 spin.
If you managed to get to the point where x32 is the only multiplier left, the x64 multiplier is unlocked.
Sequels are not easy to pull off, but Thunderkick managed to surprise us enough that at first we didn't realise the difference, and once we did, loved every one in this Esqueleto Explosivo 2 slot game.
They haven't just increased the ways to win, but increased the multipliers you can get AND added those free spins that we were missing in the first game.
In short, they've managed to remind us why the first was so great, whilst convincing us that the sequel is the only new mobile online slot we need in our lives right now. Well done Thunderkick game studios, a great start to 2020.
Esqueleto Explosivo 2 is a 5x3 reel slot game with explosive wilds, avalanching reels, scatters, free spins and increasing multipliers on every win.
