Thunderkick a small but rapidly growing iGaming developer based out of Sweden has made their first deal to enter the US market. Connecting with High 5 Casino to bring the Swedish developer into the States. Thunderkick is still a relatively new player in the igaming world only being founded back in 2012. They have become a standout in the industry being self-described as “a couple of guys who decided to do their own thing. In an industry ruled by giants, we went in another direction and swore to always stay fun and give a damn”.

High 5 Casino will feature the Pink Elephants and Sword of Khan slots which will soon be available to users across 46 states. This venture will also mark the first time Thunderkick’s games will be hosted on a social casino. A comment from the company exclaims the importance of this milestone, “High 5 Casino’s robust presence in the land-based, online, and social markets across six continents and in over 150 countries is truly commendable. This makes them an ideal partner for our first significant stride into the United States.

The CCO of Thunderkick Svante Sahlström, had this to say about the move, “We are excited to introduce our games to US players for the first time and to explore the potential of this market segment. This collaboration allows us to showcase our innovative content to a wider audience and deliver an engaging gaming experience that closely resembles real money gambling.”
