Ahoy, pirate! If you are a fan of pirates and rich pirate lore, you are going to love Quickspin’s latest addition. Skulls UP! is the brand-new 5-reel action full of pirates, treasure chests, talking parrots and mystery. Are you up to the task of uncovering the hidden treasure? If you are, you will be handsomely rewarded – with up to 3,650x your stake.
The new pirate adventure boasts incredible features designed to spruce up your gaming experience. The first feature that you will encounter (and see the most) is the Flaming Respin feature. Represented by a flaming skull, you get an additional free spin every time this little fiery skull appears on your reels. Wooden chests occasionally drop on the reels as well. If you are lucky enough, three chests will grant you 8 Free Spins in the expanded reel set.
Exotic places, risky business, and great treasures await in the 5×3 game – which can expand to 5×6. Designed as a cartoon-like game, Skulls UP! shows the playful side of this adventurous lifestyle. You can become a full-fledged buccaneer with only €0.10 for a spin. If, however, you enjoy playing with fire – and we mean literally – you can go in with €100 per round.SHOW MORESHOW MORESHOW LESS
To win in Skulls UP! you will need three matching symbols on a single payline. The game pays left to right. At first, you play with 5 reels and 3 rows, but that quickly changes with the help of special features. The original grid can expand to 5×6, boosting winning ways up to 1,944.
In terms of ingenuity, the slot doesn’t bring anything revolutionary. However, it does bring something fresh to the gaming scene. Quickspin gave its best to combine the theme with its trademark reel matrix and mechanics. The result is an amusing game, easily played, with outstanding features and brawny technicalities.
The design is amazing as well. The backdrop shows a sunny day on a tropical island. On the reels, you get to meet your crew. A couple of pirates are accompanied by charming animals typically found on a pirate ship. And who said women are not welcome aboard? The captain of the crew happens to be a fearless lady with a captain’s hat. She is the top-paying symbol, giving you 20x your stake for 5 matching icons. Other symbols include the standard 10-A card royals and two different Wilds. There’s a Scatter as well.
Thanks to very high volatility and 96.26% RTP, you always have something to look forward to. Chances of winning are not exactly stellar, but then again – that’s the pirate lifestyle for you. Bets start from €0.10 per spin and go up to €100 for a single round.
Quickspin did not want to crowd the game with unnecessary features that would complicate the gameplay. That is why you get only two special features, but you will quickly realize they are more than enough. If you like playing with fire, you will love these special features.
What makes this game so great is not the ingenious design or a ground-breaking mechanism. Skulls UP! stands out from the crowd as a colourful refreshment for slot players that enjoy this theme. Frankly, Quickspin inserted a lot of nice details into the game. From an upbeat soundtrack to the playful characters, entertainment is guaranteed.
Admittedly, we expected a higher payout potential from a game with such high volatility and 96.26% RTP. Most games with such technicalities boast better maximum payouts. So, it is kind of odd that Quickspin decided to cap it at 3,650x the stake.
Nevertheless, you will have great fun while chasing skulls that are in flames. They drop often, so the flow of the game is nice and smooth. Overall, the game is everything Quickspin stands for. Nice design, lively animations, and great features make the game very appealing to a broad audience. Skulls UP! appeared exclusively in Mr Green Casino, while other casinos had to wait a couple of weeks to get access.
