Graphics and Theme
iSoftBet have gone all out on the look and feel of this game to immerse players in the spectral nightmare portrayed in the film. Much of the gameplay looks like the fuzzy amateur camerawork which gives Paranormal Activity its signature aesthetic. Symbols are suitably terrifying, with some taking the form of horrific ghoulish girls and others represented by the famous camera that caught all the spine-tingling scenes. The board looks as though you are looking at it through the lens of the video camera with “REC” in the top left-hand corner and a battery indicator to the right. For special features, the screen pulsates with a surrounding green light, whilst someone’s breath accelerates in the background. The music, as you would expect, is a heart-racing horror theme with the odd maniacal chuckle of children’s laughter added in to creep you out.
There are several special features for this hair-raising slot which are dependent on the collection of a few critical symbols.
The first feature concern the Wild symbols. The Wild symbol in this game is a bedraggled girl with no eyes. As harrowing as that sounds, her appearance is a good sign for players. She can substitute for all other symbols apart from bonus and scatter symbols, helping you create bigger wins.
The scatters are helpful in this game too. These take the form of a blood-spattered hand and can appear on any of the reels throughout the game. If players land 3, 4 or 5 of these scatters, they will be granted a proportionate prize of coins. These are 90, 300 or 750 coins, respectively.
Also available in Paranormal Activity are bonus symbols. These can only appear on the first, third and fifth reels, however. If they appear, they can trigger a Free Spins round or an Instant Win Feature, which is accessed through the bonus wheel which presents itself when you collect these symbols.
The Instant Win Feature, as mentioned, is one of the options which can be landed on via the spinning wheel triggered by the bonuses. If you are lucky for the needle to land on this option, you could instantly win a prize of up to 750 coins.
The other option which the needle could also land on is the Free Spins round. Free Spins are split into three different rounds depending on your luck. The first round is called The Paranormal Spins round. This round offers you unlimited free spins until you manage to get five wins. Increasing multipliers are also part of this round, for every win the multipliers increase by 1x.
The second free spins round is called the Possessed Spins round and promises ten free spins with the addition of stacked wilds.
Lastly, there is the Demon Spins bonus. This variation offers 15 free spins with random demons adding extra wilds.
