Taking inspiration from Mexico's Día de Muertos - or Day Of The Dead - comes Microgaming's 5 reel 243 payline Beautiful Bones. At first glance it seems like any other slot, but it comes with interesting features. A Wild Spin Again feature is joined by a Sugar Skull meter that delivers free spins and multipliers.
Wagering on Beautiful Bones starts at 30p a spin. This can be adjusted upwards to a maximum of £30. Note that adjusting your wager will effect the Sugar Skull meter feature! An autoplay option allows you to set game play to 10, 25, 50 or 100 spins.
Day Of The Dead
The slot is set on a main purple backdrop and gameplay is accompanied by the relaxing tones of the Spanish guitar. On the reels you'll find portraits of men and women in Day Of The Dead make-up. The ladies are the higher paying symbols and they can also be stacked - but only on reels 2, 3 and 4. The card icons of 9, 10, J, Q, K and A complete the roster.
The heart is a wild symbol and this comes into play when 3 symbols of the same kind are lined up horizontally or vertically. This results in a respin plus the middle symbol of the three turns to a wild heart. Wilds can substitute any symbols except scatters.
Sugar Skull Meter Cumulative Bonus
Any scatter symbols - the sugar skull - on the reels adds to the cumulative Sugar Skull meter on the left of the slot. Get 10 or 20 Sugar Skulls to enter a free spin round with multipliers or continue the accumulation up to 30 which offers 18 free spins with x5 multiplier.
If you choose to "cash out" at 10 skulls then it's 10 free spins at x3 multiplier whilst at 20 skulls it's 15 free spins with a x4 multiplier. The Wild Spins Again feature is active during free spins! Note that changing your wager will effect your Sugar Skull meter. So you can't collect 9 skulls at 30p and then hope to activate the bonus when you switch up to £30.
Beautiful Bones has an RTP of 96.55% and can be played on mobile, tablet and desktop here at Slots Gold.
