Beautiful Bones is the latest video slot game to be released by leading casino software provider, Microgaming. The 243 ways to win game went live on Wednesday, June 7, 2017 at Microgaming powered online casinos.

The game has been inspired by Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos) and features the vibrant colours and sounds that are associated with the increasingly popular Mexican festival. The symbols are made up of three females and two males with elaborate face paint and costumes, set on a festive background filled with lanterns and lights.

There are a range of bonus features in the game including a wild spin again feature that awards a free re-spin with a fixed wild symbol in the centre whenever a three of a kind combination lands horizontally or vertically on the reels. The main feature; however, is the free spins bonus round with the Sugar Skull collection mechanic which allows players to collect skulls every time a scatter symbol lands on reels one or five. When the skull metre reaches 10 or 20 skulls, players are able to activate the free spins bonus round for 10 free spins with a 3x multiplier or 15 free spins with a 4x multiplier. Alternatively, players can choose to continue accumulating skulls until they have collected 30 when they will be awarded 18 free spins with a 5x multiplier value.

“Beautiful Bones is a stunning game 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,” announced David Reynolds, game publisher at the Isle of Man-based Microgaming.

The game is available for play via desktop and mobile devices and is expected to become a popular addition to the Microgaming suite of games.
