Beautiful Bones is no longer available for real play at Wombat Casino. Have you tried Esqueleto Explosivo, another slot themed on the Mexican Day of the Dead festival?
The wombat says: If you’re wondering what the devil this slot is all about, then this wombat can fill you in. It’s based on the Day of the Dead (Día de los Muertos). “What’s that then?” I hear you ask. Well, the Day of the Dead is a Mexican festival where family and friends get together to pray for and to remember lost loved ones who have died – and to help them on their spiritual journey to the afterlife. It’s about as themed up as you can get for a slot, especially when you compare it to more traditional games like the 3 reeler Mega Money Multiplier, so watch out for fizzing graphics and plenty of classical guitars.
OK, it might all sound a bit macabre, but actually this holiday is a celebration where people decorate graves and creating wild and wonderful altars with loads of delicious food to try and welcome the spirits. Sounds like a party to this wombat, so let’s get involved…
Look and Feel
As with most Microgaming slots, Beautiful Bones is a bit of a looker- we’d say it is on the same design level as the Siren’s Kingdom slot, although there’s more flesh on the bones of that one! The reels are jam packed with guys and gals dolled up in colourful traditional costumes with their faces painted in Day of the Dead skeleton-style (which is called Sugar Skull by the way).
The reels themselves sit against a sparkly ticker tape background, and there’s an nice little soundtrack with some Mexican guitar to accompany the reels as they spin. We’re used to seeing more standard fare from Microgaming like their Basketball slot and the usual Irish themed games- this one is a bit different, so hats off to you Beautiful Bones designers!
Beautiful Bones is a 5 reel slot with 3 rows with 243 ways to win. There are no paylines here, instead you can land your wins by matching symbols on neighbouring rows going from left to right of the reels. Hurrah!
Your symbols on the reels are 3 Sugar Skulled ladies and 2 Sugar Skulled gents, both of which can land stacked on reels 2, 3 and 4. Your lower value symbols are made up of the standard 9, 10, J, Q, K & A playing cards and are all done up with a carnival-style design.
The wild symbol in Beautiful Bones slot is the big red heart that has ‘Wild’ emblazoned on it. This helpful icon will substitute for all others on the reels to help you make extra winning combos (all except for the Sugar Skull Scatter), and it will land on reels 2, 3 and 4 so keep your eyes peeled for it.
The Sugar Skull Scatters are the key to the bonus in this slot. These icons will land on the 1st and 5th reels only and you need to collect them in a Skullometer thingy that you’ll find to the left of the reels. But more on these later…
Free Spins and Bonus Features
Wild Spin Again
This cool little extra is set off when you get any 3x of a kind winning combination and this can be either vertically or horizontally. The middle position of the win will then become wild and sticky and you’ll receive a free re-spin. The good news is that the Wild Spin Again feature is also active in the bonus round.
Once you’ve stockpiled 10x or more of the Sugar Skull Scatters in your skull bank thing, you’ll set off the free spins. OK, 10 sounds like quite a lot to collect, but these cheeky symbols land quite often Wombat fans. Now you will receive 10 free spins with all wins trebled. If you collect 20 sugar skulls, you’ll get 15 free spins with a 4x multiplier, and if manage to you amass 30 sugar skulls, you will receive 18 free spins with a 5x multiplier. It’s up to you to play the bonus feature whenever you fancy it.
Beautiful Bones slot is a medium variance game, so there are decent payouts in both the base game, and the bonus. When it comes to the Free Spins, see if you can’t hang on until you reach 18 of them with the 5x multiplier. It requires some patience, but with the possibility of just 1 free spin paying out 1,000x your bet, it could be worth the wait. And a 1000x your bet is definitely something worth celebrating…
