Fans of 243 ways slots, this one’s for you. Beautiful Bones is a 243 ways slot, which allows players to place bets in the range of 0.30 and 30.00. It is a highly volatile slot. Those of you with weak stomachs might want to look for fun and excitement elsewhere. As we view Beautiful Bones, it hides the worthwhile prizes in the bonus games and the distinctive Wild Spin Again bonus feature.
With a jackpot amount of 3 times the bet size, Beautiful Bones won’t get you far if you don’t see any bonus feature action. Here’s the catch, it takes time and a hefty budget to enjoy the thrills of the bonus game.
Pay close attention to the sidebar, located on the left of the reels. It looks gruesome, but you need to collect skulls, and collect them faster. However, before you get there, you will rely on the Wild Spin Again feature. As the rules state, whenever three symbols are lined, vertically or horizontally, the three symbols merge into a Wild Symbol, which takes the position in the middle. Another spin is triggered.
This may sound lucrative, but in reality, it’s not. Microgaming’s mathematicians have done a great job, but this does not act in your favor as a player. Three symbol lines are rather rare. At least, that’s what we can say from playing Beautiful Bones slot.
The Wild Spin Again feature introduces a new mechanic in the Microgaming portfolio. We hope to see more of it in the upcoming releases. For what it’s worth, it is not the center of attention in Beautiful Bones. Instead, if you want to profit, fill the Sugar Skull Meter as fast as you can. Here’s how the bonus boosters look like, depending on the number of Skulls you’ve collected:
- 10 Sugar Skulls – 10 Free Spins with 3x Multiplier
- 20 Sugar Skulls – 15 Free Spins with 4x Multiplier
- 30 Sugar Skulls – 20 Free Spins with 5x Multiplier
Once you collect 10 or 20 Sugar Skulls, you will be offered a choice, to play the Free Spins now, or collect additional Sugar Skulls, up to 30. Here’s what we recommend. If your budget can support the gamble, to wait and collect more Skulls, go for it. Otherwise, collect your hard earned, well-deserved big wins.
Many players will look the other after a few spins only. Once you realize how long it will take you to actually trigger the monumental bonus feature, you’ll lose all hope. After all, there are a lot of other games you can play, that don’t require such big investments. Moreover, if Beautiful Bones was a low volatility slot, this definitely wouldn’t be the case. It is what it is. If you’re into the whole festivities of the Day of the Dead, why not spin the reels a few times? Who knows, this might be the moment you’ve been waiting to beat the odds of a highly volatile video slot.
