There may be some controversy as to which pokie ruled in 2018 for the New Zealand players. For this year, many will agree that Esqueleto Explosivo was at the top of the list for popularity.

What is Esqueleto Explosivo About?

This is one of the most favoured New Zealand pokies, because of all that it has to offer. It is created by the casino software provider Thunderkick. The theme is the Mexican Day of the Dead. It is only comprised of seventeen pay lines on five reels, but it is packed with action. The minimum or maximum wager that can be placed is one coin per line. But the coin size ranges from one cent to one hundred.

It is unusual that a pokie would be popular when it doesn’t have any bonus game to it or a free spin feature. But it does have some other features that make up for this, along with some lucrative wins.

  • Explosive Wild Symbols: This is the yellow skull with glasses. It can replace any of the other picture symbols. As soon as it appears on a line, it will immediately blow up all the eight symbols that surround it. This action automatically increases the multiplier by one.
  • Mucho Multiplier: If you land a win on the drop feature, or have an explosive wild, the levels can climb from 1x up to 32x. You can imagine with a 32x multiplier, what kind of win you could possibly hit.
  • Dropping Symbols: This is very much like the cascading symbols that are found in some of the other pokies. Any symbols that have a win explode are replaced with the drop-down, which gives an additional chance of success. You also get to enjoy a series of intriguing songs as the multiplier increases. This surely will get your adrenaline going.

It is these features that make this pokie so popular.
