Sugar Skulls is a Dia de Los Muertos-themed slot and one which has been brought to the casino world by Booming Games. There are a few of these themed slots out there on the net right now, and although it may not have the features to compete with Microgaming’s Beautiful Bones or other slots from major providers, there is enough colourful and sweet action to suffice most players’ needs here. Sugar Skulls is a 5-reel, 20-line video slot, and it will cost players anything from a floor of 0.20 up to a ceiling of 400.00 a spin. When playing with the maximum wager, you can compete to win a non-progressive prize worth 20,000 coins in the Day of the Dead-themed slot. That prize is paid out when 5 wilds pop up on any payline.
The non-progressive jackpot paying wilds appear as funky banners and text. These flag-style symbols have “wild” written in colourful letters across them and can substitute for all standard paying symbols, though not the special icons.
Piñatas are one of two types of symbols to show up in Sugar Skulls. The other is a free spin icon. Piñata symbols can burst on occasion, and when this happens, they can dish out Random Fiesta Awards to players - known to most slot players as instant win cash prizes. Those prizes range from 10x up to 100x your total bet.
Free spin symbols appear as amulets, and landing 3 or more of them on the reels will initiate the only real bonus round in the slot. Known as the Major Free Spins feature, it offers stacked symbols and wilds.
Once the Major Free Spins bonus has been triggered, players will be offered a total of 10 free games. During those spins, only high paying symbols and wild symbols appear on the reels. This naturally gives you a decent shot at winning top prizes. Symbols are stacked in sets of 2 or 3 on the reels. Understandably, when the winnings are as good as they are in this feature, the bonus cannot be retriggered.
