Alisa asked Thando to follow her back to where her friends were staying. It turns out that the lovely surfer girl was the brand manager for a South African online casino called Thunderbolt and she was looking for a mascot while on holiday in Cape Town. When they arrived, Alisa and her colleagues insisted that with his adventurous spirit, Thando must become part of the Thunderbolt Casino team.

Thando was thrilled with the offer and decided then and there that fate had brought them all together for a purpose. With his lightning bolt scar and positive vibes, Thando was the perfect fit for this popular casino.

Since that fateful day, Thando has represented Thunderbolt Casino everywhere he goes and shared his story to all that ask. Proud, happy and full of gratitude, Thando is a fantastic mascot that still loves to explore the world around him.
