It’s the day of the dead and Microgaming is daring us to go wild with this Beautiful Bones mobile slot.
This is a theme that just works, namely because there’s something about the bright and colourful feel of the most famous Mexican holiday that makes you want to fiesta.
As Microgaming phone slots go, this one is a beauty, with not just pretty ladies, but masked painted men covering 5×3 reels and 243 ways to pay.
This is an unusual way to give you wilds.
We looked and there’s no other way to get wilds others than if you get 3 of the same symbols either vertically or horizontally.
At that point you’ll not only get a wild on the centre symbol, but a free re-spin.
These features might seem like a convoluted way to get wilds, but it’s actually quite good fun, as it’s not just winning lines you’ll be looking for.
But the wild symbols are just a way to keep you entertained whilst you collect scatters.
That’s right. We said ‘collect’. And not in a ‘enter the free spins round many times and you get more bonuses’ like in the Immortal Romance slot.
We mean that on the left of the wheel, every time a scatter shows up, it will be added to the tally.
The trick to enjoying this Beautiful Bones slot game is to try and collect as many scatters as you can.
The more you collect, the bigger the free spin bonus games you can get. For every 10, you get more free spins and bigger multipliers.
The problem we have with this Beautiful Bones slot, is that it would be a far more enjoyable game if once you’ve passed the checkpoint for one of the free spins, you could trigger it whenever you want.
Instead you have to choose to play those spins… or forgo them for the next big set of free spins.
So yeah, it can take a while. And once you’ve past the free spins, you have to keep going to try and trigger the next Beautiful Bones Bonus games.
It’s not like it takes a ridiculously long time. No more than, say, in IGT’s Kitty Glitter.
But the wins in this Beautiful Bones slot aren’t as big, and never will be.
This is all about keeping you spinning throughout the night, so you wake up at dawn with a good free round, before you move to the next big new mobile slot.

Wild Re-spin: basically, if any three symbols land side by side, whether horizontally or vertically, you'll get a wild symbol on screen.
That wild will then stay on screen whilst all the other symbols spin for free, giving you another chance at a win.
Scatters and Free Spins: Every time a scatter shows up, you'll collect it on the left hand side of the screen.
Once you've collected enough scatter, the game will tell you that you've got the choice to trigger the free spins... or keep collecting for bigger bonus games.
An above average Microgaming mobile game that is fun to play, especially when you take in the pretty graphics.
Granted, having to gamble as to whether you have enough cash to keep you spinning till you can catch the Beautiful Bonus slot free spins can be daunting.
But generally, this low variance machine will keep your spinning thanks to some generous 5 of a kind wins and those wild re-spin spins.
Play'n GO's Tower Quest game does the whole 'trigger the bonus by collecting symbols' better, but that's not to say that Beautiful Bones doesn't bring a skeleton smile to your face.
