Skulls Up Slot Machine

There is nothing pirates like more than victory and the glory that came with it, they either took everything or didn’t bother at all. Surprisingly pirating was an attractive proposition for those that didn’t have an aversion to the violence, hardship or even being chased by foreign government agents. For those who succeeded there was instant glory and wealth. Men of this time had the option to either set sail on the high seas in search of the exotic lands there is wealth aplenty or sit at home waiting for the opportunities to pass you by. There are pirate-themed slots available most of the time with new games popping up frequently and Skulls Up is the new slot on offer from the developers at Quickspin.

Skulls Up has been created using a conventional layout where the reels can expand when certain symbols are landed. The slot itself is clearly a classic creation from Quickspin as it uses the 5x3 reels which are complete with the orange interface. There are also a wealth of additional features that change really quickly. With regards to the theme Quickspin seem to have adhered with tradition with the pirates being either cartoon styled and really happy, or grim baddies, fortunately Quickspin have decided to go with the happy pirates therefore the slot consists of a mix of happy pirates complete with a number of really cute animals too.

Bet Strategy 

Although the slot gives off a friendly vibe don’t be sucked in by it as this a really volatile game and you will find that sometimes there will be lows that go with the highs it really does depend on your luck. The highs however depend on various factors which we will look into later. The return to player is a respectable 96.26%. You can choose to place bets which start from just 10p per spin up to a maximum of £100 per spin. When playing in the base game the slot defaults to a 5x3 reel set with a massive 243 ways to win. You can land wins by having three matching symbols on any row from the first reel and in this case thanks to the ifore rows the win opportunities can reach a colossal 1,944 at any time.


Quickspin have uniformed the symbols to be in keeping with the theme this is with the exception of the usual low value playing cards 10 through to Ace. However, on the other symbols the creators have pulled out all of the stops and you can expect to  come across monkeys, parrots, a pirate sporting an eye patch and a lady pirate who is the captain and in charge of the whole ship. The lady pirate is the highest paying symbol and provides a reward of x20 of your stake when you get lucky and land five of the same symbols. On the whole, the symbols will provide you with middle values, in other words nothing amazing but nothing that put you off. The pay table is completed with the separate two wilds that you will find on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th reels. There is also a scatter that works in conjunction with the wilds and allow you to unlock the best of the slot.


Skulls Up features all revolve around fire, first are the flaming respins which also involve the flaming skull wilds. The non-flaming skull wild give you the usual standard wild features and can substitute for any of the symbols in the base game to create winning combinations. Once you manage to land the flaming skull wild you also trigger then flaming respins feature. Prior to your reels re-spinning any of your flaming skull wilds or skull wilds add extra symbols to the grid above their space. The middle three reels can go as high as six rows and if there is no room left the wilds then stay in place.

When the reels respin, if you land a win with a flaming skull wild the flames are put out and the flaming wild morphs into a standard wild. All of the time you have flaming skull wilds displayed on reels the respins continue with all of the wins being accumulated and the reels then return to their normal height and the feature comes to an end. The scatter is depicted by the treasure chest and landing three will reward you with eight flaming free spins. The same rules apply as in the base game and this includes the flaming respins which transfer to the free spins with a couple of extras. When you land flaming respins in a free spin any height differences stay in place and do not revert to there normal height when the feature ends.
