As the name suggests, the online slot Napoleon Boney Parts from NextGen Gaming is a parody of the famous French general and emperor. It has a somewhat ghoulish sense of humour, with the reels flanked by skeletal French soldiers standing on a mound of skulls, while bones and skulls feature prominently in the game symbols too. This is only fitting, when one considers the hundreds of thousands killed by Napoleon’s wars in Europe. The same mix of upbeat and ghastly is maintained in the music and sound effects.
Players can bet on any number of paylines from 1 to 25, and Napoleon Boney Parts features five reels with three windows each. Players can bet from 0.01 to 25.00 per line, so Napoleon Boney Parts caters to all pockets. Aside from the grisly mountain of skulls and a concussed seagull, the rest of the backdrop is a rather pretty view of a sun-drenched blue bay.
Logo Activates the Free Spins
The Napoleon Boney Parts game logo, a coat of arms embellished with a skull and crossed thighbones, does duty as the Scatter. Two or more in any windows win the player an instant multiple of the entire bet staked: X2, X5, X15 or X100.
Three or more Scatters anywhere will activate the Napoleon Boney Parts Free Games Feature. The player is granted 10 free spins, and any prizes they win during this round are doubled.
Interactive Boney Parts Feature Triggered by Wilds
A skeleton of Napoleon himself, one hand tucked characteristically into his jacket, is the Napoleon Boney Parts’ Wild symbol, appearing only on Reel 2, 3 or 4. It has the usual substitution function, able to replace any symbol except the Scatter to round off a winning combo.
However, three Wilds in any windows on all three Reels 2, 3 and 4 simultaneously also trigger the Napoleon Boney Parts bonus game on a second screen. In the Boney Parts Feature, players are shown Napoleon’s full skeleton, and must steal bones from it to reveal instant prizes. The player gets three selections, and if they can make the entire skeleton collapse, they win an even bigger prize with online slots in Canada.
Ten More Payline Symbols in Play
Napoleon Boney Parts uses 10 ordinary payline symbols to complete its icon set. Six of these are the bog-standard Poker icons taken from a card deck: 9, 10, J, Q, K and A. Although they’re designed in bright colours and an ornate classic font that vaguely calls to mind the Napoleonic era, they’re not particularly wedded to the theme. They are arranged in pairs with matching values, which are also within the standard slots range: wins start at 5 coins for three 9s or 10s, rising as high as 150 coins for five As or Js.
Two of the medium-value symbols also share matched values: a map plotting the invasion of England, and a squad of skeletal French soldiers. For three, four or five matches, each wins 15, 25 or 200 coins, respectively. A warship fashioned from bones and a skeletal Empress Josephine, waving her hero goodbye, complete the symbols, and they both win prizes for two matches or better. For five matches, the ship pays 2,000 coins and Josephine, 5,000.
