Ghostbusters Plus was released in October 2020 by the industry-leading slot game developers IGT. IGT first came onto the scene when they launched the famous Wheel of Fortune slot game in 1996 for land-based casinos. Since then, they have gone on to release countless online slot game classics such as Wolf Run, Sex and the City, Lobster Mania and Double Diamonds. Ghostbuster Plus is the sequel to the popular Ghostbuster slot game that IGT released in 2011. Nearly a decade later, IGT has revamped the game with brand new features and added more chances to win huge prizes.
Ghostbusters Plus is played across a 5×3 set of reels with 20 pay lines. You can start betting from just £0.25 per spin up to a maximum of £750. There is a ton of additional features in this game including a ghost battle feature, ghost wilds, multipliers, a Level Up feature, random game modifiers, and free spins. If that’s not enough for you, how about the chance to win 1000x your stake?
Graphics and Theme
True to the movie, this slot game is set on the streets of New York City. It’s night time, and the streets are lit by flickering streetlights and the blue flashing lights of police sirens. You can see the tall concrete buildings of Manhattan either side of the reels with the Ghostbuster’s car pulling out of an alleyway to the left of the reels. The reels themselves are encased with a translucent frame. The symbols inject colour onto the screen as well as show you some familiar faces from the movie such as Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, and Harold Ramis.
The soundtrack fits the theme very well, and while it’s not the same as the theme tune that we all know and love, it builds suspense and will help you stayed focused while you hit spin. It’s made up of various synth and ghostly noises that will certainly make you feel like you’re in the movie. The reels spin silently but come to a stop one by one with a clicking noise. Explosive sounds will come out of your speakers when you land special symbols or winning combos to let you know that there is action happening!
Jack, Queen, King and Ace make up the low paying symbols in the game. Five of a kind Aces or Kings are worth 100x your bet. The high paying symbols include the characters played by Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Harold Ramis and also the game’s logo. The game’s logo is worth the most at 1000x your stake.
There are also various ghost wild symbols, a bonus symbol and various ghostly characters that come alive during the bonus features of the game.
Level Up Plus feature
During the base game, you are allowed to level up and unlock additional benefits and features. The additional benefits include things like multiplier wilds, expanding wilds and a unique bonus called the equipment feature. There are five equipment features to unlock on your way to level 10.
The key to levelling up is the ghost battle feature. The ghost battle is triggered when one of the nine ghost characters lands on reel three. You will then need to click on the ghost three times to destroy it and level up. Every time you destroy a ghost, they will leave behind a ghost wild to help make a winning combo on your next spin.
You can trigger the free spins round when you land three bonus symbols anywhere on reels one, three and five simultaneously. To start the game, you will need to zap the ghost character Zuul five times. You will be awarded a total of five free spins and five ghost wilds to use during the free spins once you have defeated Zuul.
You can retrigger the free spins round by landing three more bonus symbols on reels one, three and five up to a maximum of 25 free spins.
During the base game, the ghost wilds are active as well as three bonus ghost wilds. The bonus ghost wilds are a 25x multiplier wild, an expanding wild that expands in all directions, and a ghost wild that makes five of the highest paying combos available on your screen.
Game How to Play
The first thing you will need to do is decide on your betting value. In this game, it can be anywhere between £0.25 per spin up to a considerable maximum of £750 per spin. Then you will need to hit spin or use the auto spin feature to do all of the hard work for you. The game is played across a 5×3 set of reels, and it will start to pay out when you land a minimum of three matching symbols on a winning pay line. The aim of the game is to level up by destroying the ghost characters to unlock additional features that will help you make bigger and better winning combos.
