Golden Ghouls Slot Review

Here’s a spooky game from Microgaming that is a little bit different from most of the slot machines you’ve played. The good news is that you really do have a ghost of a chance of winning some great prizes and you won’t be haunted by your losses.

This is a three reel game that has just three paylines. On the left hand side of the screen is the ghoul who’s in the Caspar the Friendly Ghost mode with a cheerful look on his face with a bit of animation. It’s the stick a table cloth over your head type of ghost who has a house, trees and a very low full moon behind him.

Underneath the ghost is a table that shows you your stake, account balance and also the size of the progressive jackpot in this game. That’s definitely something you’ll be eager to get your hands on.

Playing the game costs between £0.02 and £15, so this isn’t one for the high rollers out there but it’s still an entertaining game to play.

The reels are on the right hand side of the screen. When the reels start to spin it’s only the bottom line that will do so. When that comes to a rest it’s decision time. This is where the hold button comes into play and you have to decide whether not to hold the reel(s). Then you spin again and the remaining reels are filled in.

There are eight different ways to win in this game. Symbos include a bat, the ghost house (everyone has to have somewhere to live), a candle and green and yellow 7’s. There’s also a wild symbol which is the golden coins and the dollar bag is the jackpot symbol.

There’s also a hold button in this game which really takes us back to games in the distant past. Deciding just when to use it is the main challenge as you hope that doing so will result in a decent win.

If you can get three of the ghost house symbols this wins you 100x your line bet. Three of the jackpot symbols wins you the progressive jackpot.

Bonus Games

The Bonus Game is triggered when three Bonus Round Ghost symbols appear on one of the reels With this game you have to try and catch as many ghouls as you possibly can. You have a certain time in which to do this and doing so will win you instant cash prizes.

Conclusion

The symbols and spooky soundtrack are great an the idea of having the hold button is great to see. It’s an interesting game with a decent bonus round so definitely one to enjoy.
