As you might expect from a game which is inspired by such an artistic tradition, Beautiful Bones looks gorgeous. The five reels of this 243 Ways to Win title are set against an abstract background which evokes a carnival atmosphere, and symbols include a beating heart, a sugar skull and several different characters, all of whom have ornate skulls painted on their faces.
The beating heart symbol (which really does beat) is wild, so it can help players to complete winning lines or improve those that have already been achieved. The sugar skull symbol is a scatter, and the number of sugar skulls on the reels is automatically added to a collection total. You can choose to collect free spins at various milestones, or go for the maximum, as follows: collect ten skulls to trigger ten free spins with a x3 multiplier, collect 20 skulls to trigger 15 free spins with a x4 multiplier, or collect 30 skulls and you will trigger 18 free spins with a x5 multiplier.
Beautiful Bones also features a Wild Spin feature. This is triggered when the reels show three symbols of the same kind in a vertical or horizontal row, and gives the player a free respin with the centre reel being wild. This Wild Spin feature is also active during the free spins round which is triggered via the collection of sugar skulls, and that can help to boost potential profits quite considerably.
Gameplay itself is both entertaining and exciting, and should provide hours of fun as well as the chance to win big. The unusual theme of Beautiful Bones provides a welcome breath of fresh air, and we have no hesitation in recommending it to players everywhere.
‘Beautiful Bones is a stunning game,’ said David Reynolds, who is Games Publisher at Microgaming, ‘that combines a bold and colourful theme with a top-notch game engine, where players earn bonuses and then have the freedom to choose their free spins rewards.’
Beautiful Bones can be played at 32Red Casino as well as other venues on the Microgaming platform.
