Skulls UP! Delivers a Flaming Good Time
Those of you who have had quite enough of the festivities and cold weather of recent weeks and who fancy getting away from it all could do the next best thing by playing Skulls UP! This is the latest slot from Quickspin, and when you launch it you will instantly be transported to a remote tropical island where you can enjoy as much virtual sunshine as your heart desires. Oh, and there are also skulls. Lots of skulls. And flames, too…
Up to 1,944 Ways to Win
Skulls UP! is a five-reel slot with three rows, giving you 243 ways to win, but the number of rows can increase as you play, giving you up to 1,944 ways to win. The game has a pirate theme, which is why this remote tropical island seems to have just as many skulls on it as it does palm trees. The good news is that the skulls can help you to win big, so don’t go out of your way to avoid them, whatever you do.
The symbols in Skulls UP! have a light-hearted cartoon style, and include coins bearing the playing card ranks of 10, J, Q, K and A, a parrot called Biscuit, a monkey called Wrench, and three pirates named Smelly, Biggie and No-Beard. As for the skills mentioned earlier, there are two types on the reels – a standard skull which serves as a normal wild, and a flaming skull which can trigger a Skulls UP! Respin feature. A treasure chest symbol serves as the scatter.
We have said that the visual style of this game is light-hearted, and the soundtrack is equally so, providing a punchy pirate theme to accompany you on your quest for riches.
The Skulls UP! Respin Feature
This feature is triggered by getting a flaming skull wild on the reels. A respin will be given and an extra row will be added to any of the second, third or fourth reels which show a skull or flaming skull. These three reels can increase up to a maximum of six rows in height, and if that limit has already been reached the skull symbols will remain in place. Additional skulls gained from the respin can add more rows, subject to the six-row maximum, and the respins will continue for as long as you have a flaming skull on the reels.
Flaming Free Spins Feature
Another great feature in this game is called Flaming Free Spins. This is activated by getting three treasure chest scatter symbols on the reels, and will award you six free spins. In this part of the game, any additional rows that have already been unlocked will remain unlocked, and the Skulls UP! Respin feature can be triggered as in the main game. However, even normal skull wilds will add rows to the reels here, and every time you expand a reel to the maximum of six rows you will be given two more free spins.
A Uniquely Enjoyable Take on the Piracy Theme
Pirate games are everywhere, but Skulls UP! has a personality and style all of its own, and is therefore well worth checking out. Set sail for your favourite venue offering Quickspin titles to start exploring, and the treasures offered by this game could soon be yours!
