Mexico's Day of the Dead holiday is world-famous, as it puts participants in touch with their dead loved ones. There are parties, somber memorials, and more, all designed to let the dead come back for one day. Microgaming has revealed their new Beautiful Bones slot to showcase this holiday, bringing a festive look and feel to your screen.
Beautiful Bones is a 5 reel, 243 ways to win video slot that is set at a party. The background is filled with lights and confetti, and the reels are comprised of a combination of standard symbols (9, 10, J, Q, K, A) and Mexican Day of the Dead holiday icons. These latter icons include women and men with skulls painted on their faces, painted skulls, and a few flowered feature symbols as well. The icons are sharp, presented with a great amount of detail on them, making the presentation top-notch for this slot.
The features in the Beautiful Bones slot are very good, if somewhat limited in their scope. The game has wild symbols, scatter symbols, and free spins. This leads to players getting a posted Return to Player (RTP) percentage of 96.5%, which is considered to be very competitive for an online game.
The experience isn't the best I've ever come across, but the game does perform admirably. You'll find that the game plays well, with wilds and scatters popping up regularly. The free spins mode didn't hit all too often for me, but when I did I ended up getting it to come around, I had a good return.
I'll say that Beautiful Bones isn't the best slot I've played, but there is certainly an audience for it. The game will appeal to those who celebrate Day of the Dead or enjoy the culture in Mexico. If you're looking for a neat looking game to play, this one is for you.
