- Another great-looking slot from Quickspin, based on pirates
- Respins can lead to additional ways to win with more positions
- Different wild symbols have different properties
Skulls UP! Is the latest from Quickspin with a playful pirate theme and those gorgeous graphics that immediately identify this as a Quickspin slot. There are quite a few features here including respins and free spins, as well as ways to increase the number of ways to win. Nothing is particularly original, but the combination of these features is quite unique. I’ll explain more on them all shortly.
To get a win, you need to land a winning combination from left to right using the base symbols. These are as follows, ranked in ascending order based on their value:
- 10 (lowest value)
- Biscuit or Wrench
- No-Beard (highest value)

Skulls UP! Slot Bonuses and Features
Wild Symbols. Skulls UP! slot has 2 types of wild symbols. The skull wild symbol is a typical wild symbol, substituting for all other symbols in a winning combination apart from the flaming skull wild and the scatter symbol. It does have additional properties in the respin feature though as we’ll soon see. The flaming skull wild also works as a wild and substitutes for all other symbols apart from the scatter. It’s also used to trigger the respin feature.
Skulls UP! Respin Feature. As mentioned, this is triggered with the flaming skull symbol. As long as these symbols stay on the reels, the respins continue. Whenever any type of wild lands, a new position opens up above the reels, increasing your number of ways to win up to a maximum of 1944. Before the next respin, any flaming skulls will be extinguished, turning them into regular wilds.
Flaming Free Spins. This is triggered with 3 scatter symbols giving 6 flaming free spins. Unlocked symbols will remain opened throughout the bonus, with flaming skulls still offering respins as they do during the base game. Skull wild symbols increase the reel height, and each new maximum height achieved gives you another 2 free spins.
Skulls UP! Slot from Quickspin has a familiar design which I think most people can really enjoy. When it comes to the features here, they’ve gone for something a little different, focusing largely on wilds and respins. There’s also a chance to open up more positions to increase your ways to win, enhanced by the free spins bonus which can also give more free spins for doing this. I’m not too sure how much I like these features combined together in this way; the payouts are fairly decent but could be better and I don’t find the free spins too fun. The base game is quite interesting though and keeps the game fairly exciting so they definitely get points for that. Overall, it’s a good game but just not one for me personally. I still think you should try it out, or you can see some of their other slots here.
