Thunderkick Software, Casinos and Slots
In 2012, a small group of enthusiastic guys and gals set up shop in Stockholm in what would be considered a tiny office but with a bold mission to take on the world of online gaming.
The workforce has since grown past the 50 mark, yet they are still seen as one of the smaller independent game studios on the market. That does not stop them from being highly creative and innovative. Quite the contrary, as the team releases, on average, one new slot every 4-8 weeks. Anyone with some knowledge in slot development will see that as quite the achievement.
Their independence proved to be a major contributor to their success as it included the development of their own Remote Gaming Server, which allows casino operators and game aggregators to easily integrate Thunderkick games into their platforms. Licenses from the MGA Malta and the UK Gambling Commission, as well as certification in dozens of smaller jurisdictions, provided the necessary regulatory framework to distribute their slot creations to a worldwide player audience.
They have not got it right every time and released some duds in between that disappeared quickly into the infinite abyss of wannabe hit slots. Magicious, Bork the Berzerker and Sunny Scoops are some of the examples that failed to mesmerize the slot playing crowd. However, the majority of the Thunderkick creations made it into the top playing charts although none reached the iconic status of the top contestants such as NetEnt’s Starburst or Play’n GO’s Book of Dead.
The surge in popularity of a particular game mechanic is firmly connected to Thunderkick. The progressive symbol upgrade in the free spins round was first seen in their blockbuster slot Marty McFry and the Flame Busters. By collecting scatters during the feature, players are upgrading the lower-value symbols consecutively to premiums and ultimately to the top symbol.
The year 2020 saw the launch of their Beat The Beast franchise with highly volatile slots and big win potential. No doubt we will see more thrilling games coming from the creative studios of Thunderkick in the near future.
