Scandinavian developers have been at the forefront of the design revolution that has swept through the online video slots world and none more so than Thunderkick. Founded in 2012, the Swedish firm has created over 20 games which are available at most of the best known online casinos.

They don’t just go for the obvious choices when it comes to the theme of their video slots either. Yes, you’ll find pirates and fruit in 1429 Uncharted Seas and Zoom. How many developers would manage to create cracking video slots from Russian dolls, native American totems and hairdressers? Thunderkick has managed that courtesy of Babushkas, Totem Wilds and the superb Barber Shop Uncut.

High-end visuals and a fresh and original soundtrack is a given with games from Thunderkick. They haven’t neglected the gameplay though, packing in plenty of quality features into their games.

The aforementioned Barber Shop Uncut is a case in point. Blending lovely cartoon visuals with an insanely catchy backing track, the action here centres on the sticky re-spins, free spins and Inwinity Spin that means your bonus always ends with a winning spin. If you’re looking for volatility, you also have Pink Elephants which offers you payouts of up to 8,200 times your stake on each spin!

Thunderkick likes to do things a little differently and that’s one of the reasons why they’ve become one of our favourite developers. The themes of their video slots often stand out from the crowd – even a standard genre gets a funky twist or two. Take Fruit Warp for example which looks like a normal fruity at first glance – floating symbols, dynamic multipliers and morphing symbols offer something very unusual though.

Visually, they’re among the best you’ll find. The design in most slots is good enough to grace high end console games. Throw in the innovative extras and you’ll find plenty to entertain from Thunderkick if you’re looking for a break from your standard vanilla offerings.
