Strategy & Tips
Flaming Skull Wild will activate the Skulls UP! Re-Spin feature. Respins will continue until Flaming Skulls land on the reels, it’s as simple as that. To open new positions on the reels, you need to land new Skulls and/or Flaming Skulls on the reels during respins. It also increases the number of ways to win, up to the max of 1,944. Once Flaming Skull Wild forms a winning combo, it will turn into regular Wild for the following respin.
Once respins are over, the reel grid resets to 243 ways to win and a 5x3 formation. Land three Treasure Chest Scatters to trigger 6 free spins. The Re-Spin feature can also be triggered during respins, only this time, if the reels get expanded, they stay like that until freebies are over. If you open up all 6 positions on all five reels, you will get 10 extra freebies, 2 free spins for each reel unlocked.
Those of you who do not like spending time on pirate ships or desert islands, but do want to discover the hidden treasures, can enjoy the Quickspin title on desktops and all compatible handheld gadgets.
