Beautiful Bones is a 5 reel, 243 ways to win slot powered by Microgaming. The game is based on the Day of the Dead (Día de los Muertos) Mexican holiday and can be played on desktop, mobile and tablet devices from 30p to £15 per spin. It comes with 2 superb bonus features.
Visually, this game is high-end which represents traditional culture – there are the usual A, K, Q, J and 10 playing cards with 2 male and 3 female skull painted characters. The 3 females only land on the 3 central reels (reels 2, 3 and 4) and can appear fully stacked to help your winnings. The wild symbol replaces all other symbols except the scatter.
In terms of bonus features, there are 2 – first up is the Wild Spin Again feature. This is played when you get a 3 of a kind winning combination (either vertically or horizontally). The middle position of the win then becomes wild with a free re-spin awarded with the wild held in place.
The main attraction is the Free Spins feature which is triggered when you collect 10 sugar skull scatters anywhere on the reels – sugar skulls can land on all reels and are collected. Once you get 10, you will receive 10 free spins with all wins trebled. If you collect 20 sugar skulls, you will be rewarded with 15 free spins with a 4x multiplier. If you collect 30 sugar skulls, you will receive 18 free spins with a 5x multiplier. It’s down to you to play the feature whenever you reach a sugar skulls milestone.
With superb graphics and good bonus features, Beautiful Bones is a medium variance game which means it has balanced payouts throughout. The bigger wins will come in the Free Spins feature and it’s advisable to hold out for the 18 free spins with a 5x multiplier as 1 free spin can pay out a handsome 1,000 times your total stake! If you like the theme, Play ‘N Go’s Grim Muerto or IGT’s Day of the Dead are recommended.
