Independent slots studio Thunderkick is setting its sights on the Latin American market after going live in Mexico with Rushbet, an online casino and sportsbook operated by Rush Street Interactive, Inc. (NYSE: RSI) (“RSI”), a U.S. based company.
Players in Mexico will now be able to enjoy the provider’s renowned portfolio of games, including Midas Golden Touch, Esqueleto Explosivo 2 and Carnival Queen.
