The chances are that the easy and obvious reasoning behind this theory is very possibly that Thunderkick have inspired just about everyone in the iGaming world, so why wouldn’t they inspire one of the biggest movie developers in the entertainment arena?

But Disney Pixar’s recent announcement at the D23 Expo of the outline for their next big venture, Coco – an animated story based on the Mexican Day of the Dead – is sure to raise eyebrows.

Is this a direct nod to Thunderkick’s own five reel slot of the Dia de los Muertos, Esqueleto Explosivo, in which Enrico Mortis and his skeletal El Mariachi band land skull on skull to create our five reels, while his Explosivo Wild and Mucho Multipliers fire up our winnings as much as they make the skull ranks explode?

The game is yet another example of Thunderkick’s fierce imagination – Esqueleto Explosivo is not just any online slot. The Stockholm-based outfit wouldn’t settle for that.

And so it is no surprise that this title remains one of the most played slots at Casino Kings. The Day of the Dead may not be celebrated until early November, but Thunderkick’s wild creativity means we can enjoy the idea of it all year long.

Maybe with the winnings we collect we can take a trip to experience the real Dia de los Muertos. Or we can spend them on fajitas and a trip to the cinema to see Coco.

After all, thanks to Thunderkick we have the perfect Day of the Dead experience at the tips of our fingers.
