You certainly get to see all of the world when playing slot games. This time we’re off to Mexico for a festival that is perfect theme territory for any slot designer. The Day of the Dead celebration (not often dead is listed right next to celebration, is it?) with all its masks is perfect. The gameplay here is too with free spins and big multipliers so it’s a game you are going to love playing with lots of chances to win plenty of coins.
This video slot with software by Microgaming has five reels but no structured pay-line system. Instead there are 243 different ways to win in this slot that can be played on your PC as well as mobile devices such as an iPhone. Those 243 different ways to win are achieved by paying out on matching symbols on adjacent spots on the reels. The minimum cost of playing this slot is just 0.30 and the max bet a total of 15. As long as you can afford any losses you might incur then that’s fine and enjoy playing this game.
As mentioned, with such a great theme, the designers couldn’t fail to come up with a brilliant looking game as ‘Beautiful Bones.’ The Mexican Day of the Dead is held every year on November 2nd (handy to know that at quiz night down the local). It all sounds a bit sombre but is the opposite and gives everyone the chance to dress up and wear outlandish zombie-like make-up.
The large symbols include three women who typically are a red head, a brunette and blonde with different coloured flowers in their hair and scary make-up on their faces and are the best paying symbols. There’s also two blokes, one with a green hat and the other with a black and orange hat and a guitar. The three female symbols are stacked and only appear on the second, third and fourth reels. We also get the colourful looking nine to Ace playing card symbols. The jackpot in this slot is a tasty 8000 coins so well worth getting your hands on.
The wild symbol in the Beautiful Bones video slot is the heart and this has the ability to substitute for all of the other symbols in this game apart from the sugar skull scatter symbol. Both the wild and scatter symbols have key roles to play in getting you even more winning combinations.
The Wild Spin Again Feature is triggered when you get three horizontal or vertically matching symbols. The player receives a free spin and the centre position symbol becomes wild increasing your chances of getting some wins.
The sugar skull scatter symbol in this Mexican themed slot only appears on the first and fifth reels but every time it appears, it’s taking you a step nearer a big win. A scatter symbol appearance adds one to the sugar skull meter and when you get to ten there’s a decision to make. You can go for the option of having ten free spins with all wins tripled. However, if you wish, you can hold your fire and decide to wait until you get 20 of the sugar skull scatter symbols.
Then it’s decision time again, you can now opt to go for 15 free spins with a 4x multiplier or if you are a very patient gambler, wait for more scatters to appear. When you get to 30 that’s the limit and the free spins round begins with 18 of them and all wins are subject to a 5x multiplier. There are no scatters in the free spins round, so no re-triggering but there are some good wins to be had here.
With so much happening in this slot you need to do a bit of homework before pumping some real cash into it. That’s achieved by playing some free Beautiful Bones slot game to see how all the features work and win you cash. Also look through the paytable which is accessed via the control button to the left of the screen and is packed with vital information about the game.
There are other slot games out there that have similar gameplay. There’s the Genesis slot, ‘Lion Dance Festival’ which also gives players 243 different ways to win and gives you the chance to win between five and 15 free spins with a minimum multiplier of 3x and a maximum one of 10x. Also try out the Microgaming slot ‘Racing For Pinks’ in which there’s an almost identical RTP and only two symbols required to trigger the free spins round with a 5x multiplier possible.
Who could dream that the Day of the Dead could be so much fun? This beautiful looking slot is a great game to play and there are some big chances to get wins. It’ll test your patience when deciding which free spins alternative to go for but even ten free spins with tripled wins is appealing. The Wild Spin Again feature is also profitable, so this is definitely one to go on your play list at the online casino.
