Esqueleto Explosivo 2 Features

Just like the original slot, Esqueleto Explosivo, this one makes win either explode or drop off the screen - just like a cascade. New symbols fall into place and can lead to the mucho multiplier that increases with each win.

Ultimately, this starts at 1x and climbs up to x32. This also increases whenever the explosivo wild lands on reels 2 to 4. The explosivo wild substitutes all except the scatter and explode all surrounding symbols in its vicinity.

Free Spins

The purple skull is the scatter and landing 3, 4 or 5 will trigger 10, 12 or 14 free spins respectively. During free spins, the scatter can award additional free spins by landing 2, 3, 4 and or scatters.

Mucho Multiplier

Amazingly, this multiplier increases each time a win is registered or when an explosivo wild appears on the reels. The multiplier starts at x1 but can climb up to x32 during the base gameplay.

Free Spins Multiplier

Amazingly, during the free spins round, the explosivo wild can land and give the players an additional free spin as well as taking away a low multiplier. During this round, the multiplier can climb up to x64!

Esqueleto Explosivo 2 Review

Celebrating the iconic Day of the Dead in style, Enrico Mortis and his infamous mariachi band, The Boners, return to charm up your life. Developed by Thunderkick, Esqueleto Explosivo 2 plays on 5-reels with 99 paylines and turns up the volatility to high.

Just like the first slot, Esqueleto Explosivo, this one blends Mexican slots with music slots to create something magical. Everything returns from the original title but this time with more to win and an impressive free spins round. Esqueleto Explosivo 2 is beautiful and wonderful, there’s so much to love in this slot and no reason NOT to check it out.


If you just looked at this slot alone, you’d think it’s a masterpiece. The vibrancy in colours from the characters and backgrounds are perfect for The Day of the Dead celebration. However, it’s fully copied from the original slot. From the design of the skulls to the setting of the alleyway, it’s just the same slot copied over.

Even the music played from the mariachi band and in the background is almost identical to the first slot. Of course, the original slot is brilliant in design and one of the most eye-catching slots we’ve seen.

Unfortunately with Esqueleto Explosivo 2, we’ve seen this before and it feels incredibly cheap. Thunderkick has impressed us with almost all their slots, but the repetition is a letdown.


Everything you could need can be found at the bottom of the screen. The left-hand side contains a menu with the game rules and paytable, whilst the right-hand side has the stake selection, autospin and spin button. Players can set autospins of up to 5,000 with bets going up to 100.00.

Win Potential

Unlike the first slot, Esqueleto Explosivo 2 is a high volatility slot with an RTP of 96.13%. The returns will be less frequent, but high when they do - so make sure that you have the bankroll to sustain you.

Players can win up to 5,000x their stake by landing the multiplier of x64 - but that’s the maximum that they can expect to win. It’s a decent amount but may not be satisfactory enough for high rollers.

Our Verdict

If we hadn’t played the original, then this slot would be an utter knockout. Unfortunately, the design and most of the gameplay is repeated from the first game. However, the addition of free spins and a higher multiplier does make Esqueleto Explosivo 2 more appealing.

It’s only a small addition but makes a huge difference. This slot is clear for high rolling players who want bigger wins and they’ve definitely reached their mark. If you love the Esqueleto Explosivo series and thought that it needed free spins, higher volatility and a bigger payout, then definitely check out Esqueleto Explosivo 2.
