Based on the 1978 American horror film Halloween, Halloween slot is brought to you by renowned slot game creators Microgaming. Playable across five reels and with 50 pay lines, you can give this slot a spin on October 31st for as little as 50p a spin up to a whopping £200 per go across all desktop, mobile and tablet devices.
If you dare to step into the dark and sinister world of Halloween slot, then you’ll be in for a treat. There’s a wandering reel feature on this slot game which allows groups of 3 reels to move and spin together with jumbo block 3×3 symbols appearing, and this isn’t the only feature available, as Microgaming has packed this game full of fun for you to enjoy! The Trick or Treat Wheel bonus feature enables you to spin the wheel for mega cash prizes or the chance to win two bonus features. You’ve got free spins up for grabs or access to the Boogeyman bonus, which gives you fantastic cash prizes with added multipliers for even bigger returns.
Graphics and Theme
Visually, the game has an eerie feel with dark skies, falling autumnal leaves and a masked Michael Myers creeping out from behind the bushes. As the reel grid loads, you’ll see the front of the Strode family home where all the action of the classic slasher film takes place. Symbols are all theme and film-based and include knives, guns, creepy clown masks, rotary phones, knitting needles and matches. There are also 4-character symbols from the film including Lynda, Annie, Loomis and finally Laurie, who is played by Jamie Lee Curtis. This game has wild and bonus scatter symbols, too.
When it comes to the soundtrack to Halloween slot, you can expect to hear a classic horror film score playing continuously in the background. Long piano notes are played which get quicker to add some adrenaline and fear. When you strike a win, quotes from the film are recited from that character or the sound of a gunshot is played, and if you land three or more bonus symbols, the sky is lit up by lightning bolts and the whole screen shakes. It builds up fear and excitement for what’s to come!
The wild symbol in the game is the Halloween logo of a spooky Jack’O Lantern holding a dagger. This substitutes for all other symbols in the game to make winning combos except for the bonus symbol.
Scatter bonus symbol
The scatter symbol is the red and yellow bonus wheel symbol, which triggers the ‘Trick or Treat’ bonus round if you receive three or more on your reel grid.
Wandering reel feature
Wandering reels are a group of 3 reels that spin together and stop on the reel grid in one of 3 positions. The position determines the reels and lines that are played, and every wandering reel contains jumbo blocks of 3×3 symbols.
Trick or treat wheel bonus
Landing 3 bonus scatter symbols anywhere on the reel grid will trigger the ‘Trick or Treat Wheel’ bonus feature. Spin the wheel to win cash prizes of up to 10 times your stake! You can keep spinning and collecting more prizes until you hit the Boogeyman Bonus feature or Free Spins.
The boogeyman bonus feature allows you to pick from orange autumn leaves to reveal cash prizes with an added multiplier. The multiplier increases by one after each win, and if you manage to find yourself all ten cash bonuses, you will win an additional prize of 20x your stake! Furthermore, if you find Michael Myers, you’ll only be rewarded half the prize amount, and he will end the feature (but if you’ve already got a knife, this will block him from ending it).
The free spins feature will award you with nine free spins and is triggered by finding Lynda, Annie, Loomis or Laurie in the Trick or Treat Wheel bonus feature. The character who triggers the feature for you will be the focus during the free spins, and the wandering reel will only display the relevant character for bigger wins.
Game How to Play
Despite its unique reel set up, Halloween slot is straightforward to play, and the aim of the game is the same as all standard slots: match three or more icons from left to right on your lines to win cash prizes. This game appeals to a wide audience due to having both low and high betting limits from 50p up to £200 and with the wandering reels feature played over 50 pay lines. Set your bet amount by clicking the bet button to the right of your spin button, then just hit the green spin button to get going. The character symbols offer the biggest payouts, with Laurie being the most valuable giving you 30x your stake for 5 of a kind.
