New Skulls UP! Online Pokie from Quickspin

Tia Winter | 23 January 2020

Quickspin, a subsidiary of Playtech Group, has just revealed its release of a brand-new online pokies game that will have players on the edges of their seats. Skulls UP! Is the first title from Quickspin to be released with a portrait-first focus, making it perfect for mobile casino players.

The famed developer always emphasises mobile play, which is why they have created their innovative new portrait mode. The new online pokie boasts this mode, along with a tropical theme and plenty of action-packed features. Players can look forward to a slew of free spins, respins, Wilds, and of course, skulls as well!

Flaming Wilds and Respins

Skulls UP! standout feature is its Flaming Respins round. When you land the Flaming Skull Wild symbol on the reels, this special round will be automatically triggered. Before every respin begins, a new Flaming Wild and an additional Skull Wild will appear on the grid. This will create a new symbol position above the reel on which they appeared, and if no new positions open, the symbols will remain in place to add extra wins to your pockets.

If you manage to land a Flaming Skull Wild during a Flaming Respin, the fire will be extinguished and the symbol will transform into a regular Wild. The respins will continue for as long as Wilds remain on the reels, and the feature can easily be retriggered from within the base game.

Even more free spins can be earned using Skulls UP! Treasure Chest symbols. Land 3 of these Scatters anywhere on the online pokie’s reels and the Flaming Extra Spins bonus will begin. This round offers an initial 6 free spins, along with the chance to trigger the Flaming Respin feature as well. During the round, you can also earn another 2 free spins every time a reel expands to reach 6 symbols tall.

Quickspin CEO Weighs In

Quickspin CEO Daniel Lindberg says that his team is excited to be kick-starting 2020 with Skulls UP! He noted that his company has a diverse range of online pokies releases planned for the year, and will continue to release at least one top quality pokie per month in traditional style.

Lindberg also added that all new releases will be fully compatible with mobile devices and will feature the brand new portrait mode mechanic. Skulls UP! has now officially joined the Swedish developer’s ever-expanding portfolio of casino games.
