|Symbols||Día de Muertos|
Beautiful Bones is a new Microgaming developed slot machine. It is one which celebrates the Mexican Day of the Dead and does so rather spectacularly.
This colourful and entertaining game takes on a theme which few other slots have been able to replicate and is certainly deserving of brownie points for originality.
Look and feel
Colourful is the word which is best used to describe the Beautiful Bones slot. This particular game features a flurry of dressed up ladies and gents and ghouls and corpses.
The tastefully designed slot machine uses those characters as its best paying symbols, and they really drive home the Día de los Muertos theme which is present throughout this game. The audio is pretty nifty, too, for anybody who likes a bit of ambience in their slots.
Like most major Microgaming developed slot machine games, Beautiful Bones is played over 243 paylines. None of those can be altered by the player, although the value of their coins and the number of coins they bet per spin can be.
At its cheapest, players are looking at 30p per spin minimum stakes. At its costliest, Beautiful Bones will set players back just £15 per spin. The jackpot is non-progressive and worth 1,000x the total amount wagered by the player.
The three female characters in this slot can appear stacked on the reels, and that will help players land windfalls. The wild also contributes in that regard, since it can replace all other icons barring scatters.
A Wild Spin Again bonus is triggered when any 3-of-a-kind combination is landed on the reels (even vertically). The middle symbol in any winning combo will then become a wild whilst a re-spin is triggered.
The second feature of this slot is a standard free games feature. As players spin the reels, they can acquire skulls. Players need to land 10, 20, or 30 skulls to win 10 spins with 3x multipliers, 15 spins with 4x multipliers, or 18 spins with 5x multiplier.
Just when you decide to trigger the bonus is totally down to you. The longer you wait (after bagging 10 skulls, that is) the better your free spins bonus round is going to be. This most original special feature certainly adds to the already existing charm of the Beautiful Bones slot.
