Beautiful bones developed by Microgaming is 5 reel 243 ways to win slot game. The theme of the game takes inspiration from the Mexican ‘Day of the Dead’ and similar traditions. The five high-value symbols are men and women whose faces are painted to resemble skulls. The three highest value female characters can appear in stacks on reels 2, 3 and 4. The remaining six regular symbols are the traditional 9 to A. As this is a 243 ways to win slot, it means that when three or more symbols appear consecutively from the leftmost reel it is always a win. In fact, the character symbols pay for just 2 consecutive symbols, which allows for regular wins even if they are not always high coin value wins.
In Beautiful Bones there’s no payline structure and wins can be formed as long as there are matching symbols in adjacent rows starting from the left hand side. The ornate set of reels sits against a sparkly, glowing backdrop and there’s an enticing soundtrack to keep things moving along.
- You can spin the game and bet on the available 243 ways to win. This makes the machine really exciting because you have plenty of winning combinations to try on.
- In order to take home some cash prize, you must get three or more identical symbols on a single pay line. Open the paytable to determine the equivalent amount of each symbol. Other than the regular payouts, the game has scatter and wild icons to increase your winnings.
- A skull surrounded with colorful flowers represents the scatter symbol of Beautiful Bones slot machine. This icon only appears in the first and fifth reels. Gather 10 scatter icons and you will receive 10 free spins with 3x multiplier. If you save those 10 scatter icons to collect more, you will also get a chance for more free spins and higher multipliers. Those 20 scatter icons can yield 15 free spins with 4x multiplier, while 30 scatters can yield 18 free spins with 5x multiplier.
- The wild icon represented by a heart can replace all other symbols on the reels to create a winning combination. However, it cannot substitute the scatter.
Symbols and features
There are five high value symbols and these are all characters from this story – three ladies and two gents; these can all be stacked but only on reels two, three and four. 9, 10, J, Q, K and A make up the lower values in the game and the wild symbol is a big red heart which will substitute for all others to form winning combos except for the sugar skull scatter icon.
Wild Spin Again is a mini-feature triggered whenever three symbols line up horizontally or vertically anywhere on the reels; you will now receive one free spin with the centre position of those three transformed into a wild.
You may have already noticed the meter which runs up the left hand side of the reels and a position is filled up each time a sugar skull symbol lands on the reels; when ten have been collected you can choose to take the 10 free spins with a 3x multiplier or keep collecting for 15 free spins with a 4x multiplier. Keep going and you’ll eventually collect thirty skulls for 18 free spins with a 5x multiplier.
The Wild Spin Again feature is also active during any free spins but you can’t keep collecting skulls during this round.
Players can get the max win on the free spins feature with the 5x multiplier. As said above you can trigger the free spins feature by collecting scatter symbols. A meter bar stand on the left hand corner of the reels and every time scatters land on reels 1 and 5, they will be added to the meter. Collecting 10 scatters will give the you the option to trigger the free spins. However the player can choose to keep collecting scatters for more spins and a higher multiplier.
- Collecting 10 scatters will award 10 free spins plus a 3x multiplier for every win.
- Getting 20 scatters will award 15 free spins plus a 4x multiplier for every win.
- And collecting 30 scatters will award 18 free spins plus a 5x multiplier for every win.
- In addition, the Wild Spin Again feature is also active during the free spin round.
The max win possible on the game goes up to 1000x the stake.
