Thunderkick is a Swedish software developer that was formed in 2012. So they already have about 5 years of experience of providing top notch games. This experience extends further, however, as the founders of Thunderkick originally collaborated with NetEnt, another industry giant. Their team consists of both seasoned veterans and newer members, with a fresher outlook on games. This balanced mix is evident in their games, which are both innovative and solidly programmed. They are also currently looking to fill more positions and grow their potential.
Thunderkick is an independent developer, since they use a Remote Gaming Server (RGS) to host and develop their games. This has allowed them to make games by their own rules, which enabled them to create the unique games they have today. There are indeed some advantages to remaining independent.
Thunderkick’s current catalogue numbers 20 quality video slots. While this number is not as impressive as for other popular software developers, their games are rather widespread. This proves that quality is more important than quantity in this case. Their games are programmed in HTML5 and Adobe Flash. Moreover, games are rendered in real time. This considerably shortens load times and also makes the game size a lot smaller. So far, the only type of game available is video slots, but perhaps we’ll see more in the future, as Thunderkick continues to expand its collection.
Thunderkick is licensed in both Malta and the UK, and operates in multiple countries. The full list of certificates can be found on their website, but to name a few, they hold certificates for the UK, Spain, Italy, and Denmark. Just check the list to see what games are available in your country.
Thunderkick is also a firm supporter of responsible gaming.

Top Thunderkick games
Full Moon Romance: The newest addition to Thunderkick’s collection, this game follows the story between Jack and Rosie as they go on a date. But what will happen once the full moon rises? This werewolf themed slot is a 5 reel, 15 line game with stunning graphics and a fitting soundtrack. It really does sound like we’re back at some 80s movie theatre! This game’s features are the clone feature (if either Jack or Rosie are fully stacked on one reel, they will multiply on other reels too), bonus games, free spins, wilds and the full moon scatter.
1429 Uncharted Seas: Another one of our personal favourites, in which you can become an adventurer, exploring unknown territories. We were impressed by its unique design and beautiful illustrations, as the reel layout is, in fact, a navigation map. This is a 5 reel game with 25 lines. Once the intro showing us your ship ends, we can jump straight into the game. The most important features are expanding wilds, scatter symbols, bonus games and free spins. Special cut scenes were made for the beginning of a bonus game.
Arcader: Are you a fan of retro arcade games? Then this is the choice for you! With fantastic sound and video effects that will remind you of Space Invaders, this 5 reel, 15 line game is not to be missed. Fly into space and cash in big wins with the game’s features, such as expanders, bonus and mystery symbols. The mystery round is what makes this game truly unique. This game mode looks a bit like Minesweeper, and players have to select symbols without clicking on the X’s, which will end the round.
Frog Grog: Delve into the mysterious world of witchcraft with this 5 reel, 23 line game. Help the witch with creating treasure by mixing her numerous potions and…frogs. We especially liked this game’s animation. Some of the interesting features are the wild frogs, frog burp (removes all symbols on the column and line of the frog), multipliers, dropping symbols, and the exciting mystery game.
Flame Busters: Another pick for retro game enthusiasts, help our heroes, firefighters Roasty McFry and his team, to save the cat and the other tenants from a burning building. This is a 5 reel game with 243 pay ways. This thrilling video slot uses an unusual art style, 8-bit graphics, reminding us of those old Gameboy games. Features include wilds, alarm bell symbols, fire symbols, the fire drill (a randomly activated event).
To conclude, Thunderkick is a serious contender in the online betting industry. Their video slots, even though not many, are all a pleasure to look at with a solid design and playing system. This is probably why they have so quickly attained the success they have today. We certainly expect to see more fantastic games from them in the future.
