A Review of Microgaming’s Beautiful Bones Pokie

June 15, 2017

As soon as the new Beautiful Bones online pokie from Microgaming first arrived in Aussie online casino on Wednesday 7th July, 2017, we headed straight to our favourite Microgaming casino and decided to give it a try just to see what it was like. It’s not our favourite Microgaming pokie, but it’s also not our worst and we can definitely recommend playing on it when you next visit any of our reviewed Microgaming casinos.

It has a unique theme which has been inspired by the ancient Aztec tradition of face-painted skulls and it has some cool sound effects and fun in-play animated sequences. We had a few spins in the free play demo mode and then we decided to try this game in the real money mode. We weren’t disappointed.

We set the stake to AU$3.00 and the Wild Spin Again Feature triggered on pretty much the first or second spin. Three matching symbols lined up across the reels in a vertical line and those symbols instantly formed in to a new Wild Symbol. That Wild Symbol then remained locked in position while the rest of the reels all respun once, for free.

We received a payout for the first line win and then another line win occurred when the reels stopped spinning. After playing on this game for about five minutes we quickly realised that this special in-play feature triggers quite often. We also noticed that each time a Sugar Skull Scatter Symbol shows up on the reels it was automatically stored for us towards the left hand side of reel 1 in the bonus keeper meter. However, these Scatter Symbols only ever show up on the two outer reels (reels 1 and 5).

The Free Spins Bonus will only ever trigger after having collected a minimum of 10 Sugar Skulls during normal play and this can trigger 10 Free Spins and a 3X Multiplier. However, you don’t have to accept this bonus. You can keep on collecting them for an even more rewarding Free Spins Bonus Feature. We decided to keep on going and it took a while but we eventually collected 20 more Sugar Skulls at which point we could have claimed 15 Free Spins and a 4X Multiplier.

Once again we decided to keep on going and then it took about 10 more minutes (or roughly 150 spins) before we managed to collect a maximum of 30 Sugar Skulls, at which point we triggered the top prize of 18 Free Spins and a 5X Multiplier. We’re glad we waited because during this exciting Spins Bonus Round we ended up winning more than AU$690.00.

You may not have the patience to wait like we did until you have collected all 30 Sugar Skulls, but the great thing about this pokie is the fact that at least you have the choice. Don’t forget to check out the Beautiful Bones online pokie when you next visit any of the top-rated Aussie online casinos that were mentioned above.
