Play Beautiful Bones Online Slot This Halloween


Day of the Dead is a Mexican festival celebrated around the same time as Halloween. It also has an eerie touch about it. If you are a James Bond fan you would have seen it in the opening sequence of the movie Spectre. However, it has a different origin. The festival commemorates the deceased and rejoices in their spiritual transcend. There is plenty of eating, drinking and merry making. However, the people take to the streets in macabre costumes that depict skeletons. Microgaming has launched an online slot game based on this festival and very appropriately named it Beautiful Bones. You can play it at online casinos like Jackpot City, Spin Palace and Royal Vegas.

Beautiful Bones has the popular 243 ways to win structure that Microgaming usually assigns to its high profile games. The total bet is 30 times the line bet. The high paying symbols are five male and female revellers. In keeping with the spirit of the festival their faces are painted white to look like skulls and the win animations are awesome. These start paying from two like symbols aligned from left to right on active paylines. The top line payout is 300 times the line bet. The low paying symbols are the usual playing card icons from A to 9. The heart is the wild symbol.

The Wild Spin Again is a new and interesting feature introduced by Microgaming in Beautiful Bones online slot game. It is triggered when three identical symbols appear next to each other in a horizontal or vertical line. Four or five symbols aligned horizontally will not trigger this feature. The central symbol transforms into a wild heart, which is held fixed and the reels spin once again. Also not that two or more triggers in a spin will award only one respin. But if you get the required alignment in the respin then you get another respin.

Beautiful Bones has a free spins feature, but is not triggered in the usual manner. Whenever the skull symbol appears anywhere on reel 1 or reel 5 it adds a skull in the sugar skull meter. When you reach 10 skulls you can claim 10 free spins with tripled payouts or you can continue playing with the skull meter intact. On reaching 20 skulls you can claim 15 free spins with payouts multiplied 4 times or you can continue playing. When you reach 30 skulls the feature is activated by default. It awards 18 free spins with payouts multiplied 5 times.
