The Skulls Up! slot game can be found at casinos offering Quickspin software. Quickspin are one of the newer slots game developers on the market but their products are polished and professional in feel and operation.

Skulls Up! is a 5 reel slot that is 3 symbols high. Instead of paylines, you form wins when you land 3 or more identical symbols across adjacent reels, with 243 different ways to win. The size of the Skull’s Up grid can change, with a row of reels, 3 symbols long appearing above existing reels each time a Flaming Skulls Up symbol lands. This would inevitiably increase the number of potential ways to win.
The theme of Skulls Up! is a Pirate one and it comes with a lot of what you would associate with that. You get (as the title suggests) plenty of skulls, plenty of pirates, treasure chests and parrots. The whole thing takes place on a desert island, exactly the sort of place you might expect to find a hoard of buried treasure.
Wild – The standard Wild is the “Skull”, which will substitute for all symbols other than Free Spins.
Flaming Skulls Up Wild – The Flaming Skulls Up Wild is the “Flaming Skull” which will substitute for all symbols and will trigger a respin when it lands. Any “Flaming Skull” or standard Wild symbol that land after this will add a row of reels, 3 symbols long to above the existing reels, up to a maximum of 6 in total.
Free Spins – The “Chest” symbol is the Free Spins symbol. You need 3 or more of them to trigger the feature.
Free Spins – If you can trigger the Free Spins feature then you will be given 6 Free Spins. The Skulls Up respin feature is active during the Free Spins and any reels that increase in size will remain this height for the duration of the feature. If you can get to 6 symbols high will trigger 2 additional Free Spins.
