The most famous Swedish casino game developer is, without a doubt, Net Entertainment. NetEnt has more than 700 employees and they are constantly looking to bring additional talent to their already quite large firm. They have produced over 200 thrilling games and they are also registered on the stock market NASDAQ Stockholm, Large Cap.
Net Entertainment is currently leading the race among casino game developers, but there are other companies in the casino game developing space that strive to challenge their crown. One of the smaller and most promising firms in the field is Thunderkick. Thunderkick’s game library only contains 16 different games, but the quality of their games is astonishing. With only 16 games it might seem like Thunderkick isn’t a threat to the bigger casino game developers at this moment. While that might be true, the Swedish casino portal Cino.se comments that Thunderkick has recruited several well-known and competent industry veterans and should certainly be able to challenge the bigger firms in the future.
Just recently Thunderkick released two new exciting games: Frog Grog and Turning Totems. Reportedly both Frog Grog and Turning Totems have been overwhelmingly well received.
Thunderkick’s own description of the game reads, “Moth wings, eyeballs and hair of a witch, Bottles and flasks could make you rich! Frog Grog has Wild Frogs, a Mystery Game and an increasing Multiplier that let's you stay hot at the top.”
The overall atmosphere of the game is chilling and ghastly with a captivating magical tone. Most slots nowadays contain 5 reels and that is also the case in this slot machine. There are 24 fixed pay lines and the theoretical payout rate to players is at 96.1%. There is one thing in this game that differs from normal slots and that is how the reels work. The function of the reels might be inspired from one of Thunderkick’s first games, Esqueleto Explosivo. The symbols fall from above, instead of spinning on a wheel, and if the symbols create a line, those symbols magically disappears and other symbols appear in their place.
Frog Grog is an entertaining game with nice bonus system with up to 7x multiplier and a mystery game that appears randomly.
Turning Totems is the newest game from Thunderkick released on November 30th. The game has 5 reels and 11 fixed pay lines.
In Turning Totems you can win from both left to right and right to left. Normally winning lines are only considered from left to right. The game is clearly inspired from the Indian wild life. The 5 reels consist of 5 totem poles which each have three rotating heads. They will start to rotate when you press the spin button. The game features sleeping wilds and a bonus game that unlocks 5 free spins.
