Inspired by the well-known yearly Mexican Day of the Dead festival, in which families welcome back their deceased relatives’ souls for a brief reunion, Beautiful Bones Slot from Microgaming has a standard five reels and no formal Payline structure but up to a whopping 243 ways to win.
It’s a visually fantastic affair with an elaborate reel set and a sparkly background and comes with a couple of excellent bonus features. Enjoy on desktop or your mobile device of choice, with no download needed.
Finally, an enticing salsa background tune adds to the atmosphere of Beautiful Bones Slot, although admittedly it’s not a particularly Mexican musical form.
How to play
You’re in for 10 free spins, plus a 3x multiplier applies. And if you can bag 20 of the skulls, your rewards are 15 free whirls with all wins quadrupled. For 30 skulls, it’s 18 freebies with a tidy 5x multiplier thrown in.
It’s actually worth holding out until you have the chance to play 18 free spins on this bonus. A meter on the left of your screen fills every time you get a sugar skull.
Wild Spin Again
Activate this whenever three symbols are lined up vertically or horizontally anywhere on the reels. You get a single free whirl, plus the middle line-up symbol becomes Wild.
Although this feature is active when you’re playing the free spins round, it’s not possible to continue collecting skulls during the round.
Return to Player (RTP)
The RTP or Return to Player in Beautiful Bones isn’t too shabby at all, at around 96.5%.
There’s no denying Beautiful Bones Slot has an engaging theme, and this is a slick-looking, high-quality slot with plenty of colour and energy and some intriguing bonus elements.
What’s more, the bonus feature is bound to trigger eventually. (However, bear in mind that as it’s a low-volatility game, you’ll be relying on lots of smaller wins.) Play it for free in the first instance, and see how you get on.
