Despite its slightly macabre title, the newly-launched Beautiful Bones slot has plenty to tickle your funny bone with. As it’s a Microgaming slot, there are more paylines than you might expect – 243 to be precise. There’s also some very colourful and carefully-drawn imagery, which is where the name Beautiful Bones comes into play. The game takes its inspiration from the world-famous Mexican Day of the Dead festival, and in this instance, the candy skulls are painted onto living men and women who still manage to look elegant and attractive despite their skull-themed makeup.
Where the Beautiful Bones slot game truly comes into its own, however, is via its Wild Spin Again feature, where any three matching symbols that lie horizontally or vertically to each other award a second spin with a wild symbol taking the centre position.
You can also gain easier access to the Free Spins Meter through the Sugar Skull Meter, and you have the option to unlock the Free Spins Bonus earlier or continue until you’ve accumulated enough sugar skulls to earn the maximum number of free spins and the top win multiplier.
Party bunting, fireworks, and confetti provide the pretty pink, purple, and gold background for the Beautiful Bones slot by Microgaming, and a whirling dervish of Mariachi music brings the game to life.
The symbols that you’ll come across while spinning the Beautiful Bones reels include a traditional candy skull, a red heart, five playing card symbols, plus two gentleman and three ladies wearing roses in their hair and Mexican hats respectively, and all with painted skeletal faces. N.B., the three women, appear stacked on Reels 2, 3, and 4 to improve your chances of winning prizes through them.
Thanks to the 243 ways to win pay system, you can create wins from left-to-right using adjacent symbols rather than across paylines.
The red rose-clad heart is the wild symbol in Beautiful Bones, and it can substitute for any symbol except the scatter to help create winning combinations.
The scatter symbols in Beautiful Bones is the sugar skull marked “Free Spins”, and each time it appears on the first or fifth reel, it adds one sugar skull to the meter on the left-hand side of the screen.
As we’ve just mentioned the scatter and the Sugar Skull Meter, it makes sense to now discuss how the free spins feature of the Beautiful Bones slot game works.
As you continue to collect skulls on the meter, you’ll have the potential to unlock three distinctive features. The first awards ten free spins with a 3x multiplier; the second gives you fifteen free games with a 4x multiplier, and the third offers you eighteen free spins with a 5x multiplier. When you hit the first and even the second level, you can either choose to claim the current free spins bonus or continue until you’ve accumulated enough skulls in the meter to reach the next level.
The Wild Spin Again Feature is triggered when three identical symbols line up horizontally or vertically on the reels, upon which, you get to spin again, but this time, the centre symbol position becomes wild.
