How to Play Skulls Up

If you’re in any way experienced in the online casino – or even land-based casinos for that matter, you should find Skulls Up extremely easy to get to grips with. The main thing players need to do to get started is to select their stake per spin. This can chosen by clicking on the orange ‘Total Bet’ tab at the bottom centre of the game and selecting the amount you want or by using the up and down arrows next to it. Players can stake anywhere from €0,10 to €100 per spin. When you’re happy with your stake, you just need to press the big orange spin icon in the bottom right corner of the game screen.
Should you prefer to take a more “hands-off” approach to online slots, then you might want to make use of Skulls Up’s Autoplay feature. You can set this up by clicking on the button to the left of the spin button with two whirling arrows on it. The simplest set up for Autoplay is to chose how many automatic spins you’d like to play, once selected this will keep the reels spinning until those spins are over, you run out of funds or you press the stop button. There are also options to stop set a loss limit or stop after you win a certain amount in a spin, both of which can be found in the same section.

Skulls Up Features

Wild symbols are often the most popular feature on online slot games and Skulls Up has doubled the fun here by offering two types of Wilds. And the fun doesn’t stop there on this well-animated slot game as players can also unlock the Flaming Free Spins round when players find Chest symbols.
As well as the Skull and Flaming Skull Wild symbols, plus the Chest scatter symbols, the five reels of Skulls Up display five other characters: the high value No-Beard, Biggie, Smelly, Wrench and Biscuit, and the lower value Ace, King, Queen, Jack and Ten symbols. If you find any three matching symbols on a payline, you’ll be guaranteed a win.

Wild Symbols on Skulls Up

Wild symbols on Skulls Up come in two forms: a normal Skull and a Flaming Skull. Both Wild symbols substitute for all other symbols (except other Wilds and the Chest scatter) in order to create winning paylines, but you’ll be in for some extra fun when you discover a Flaming Skull Wild symbol.
When a Flaming Skull Wild appears on the reels, you’ll automatically trigger the Skulls UP! Re-Spin feature. This sees your middle three reels expand vertically, with your Wild symbol occupying one of the spaces. If you discover another Wild symbol in the re-spin (including the normal Skull wild) you’ll trigger another re-spin and you’ll keep doing so until the Wilds disappear.
