A bit of horror is always a great theme for a slot game. Some spooky happenings are fun whatever the time of year but of course it’s intensified at Halloween time. That’s when the girls scream and the fancy dress store owners plan where they’re going to go on holiday next year.
This entertaining slot comes from 1×2 Gaming who are a UK based company with a fantastic reputation for producing a great number of excellent slot games. The introduction to the game has pumpkins galore including one massive one. It certainly sets the scene for the spooky happenings that await us.
‘Halloween Horrors’ is a five-reel game with three rows and there’s a total of 25 paylines for you to try and win some cash on. It’s entirely up to you just how many of the paylines you decide to activate. The minimum cost of playing the game is £0.01 and the maximum is £125. That’s a wide range and you should be able to find a level that fits in with your financial budget. Just make sure you enjoy the game without any financial worries.
As you spin the reels there’s great messages underneath them such as ‘wake up lazybones’ and ‘grab your pumpkin and start the tumblin’’ The background to the game has a witch flying around on her broomstick and bats hanging from trees. Probably not the best of areas to go for a late-night walk.
A game like this needs some scary symbols and that’s just what we have. There’s a ghost, a witches hat, a zombie (there’s always a zombie), a black cat, a vampire bat and a scary tree trunk (not quite sure what’s scary about a tree trunk and exactly what it can do to you).
The wild symbol in this game is the pumpkin that has a great big smile on its face. This isn’t that horrible as it can substitute for other symbols and get you some winning combinations. It can’t substitute for the skull or the headstone which are the scatter symbols in ‘Halloween Horrors.’ It can the Jack to Ace symbols that pad out the reels.
Two of the headstone symbols will see you wining an instant prize. You get 7x your stake for two, 30x the stake for three and four gets you a whopping 100x your stake. Five will have you jumping for joy rather than out of your skin because you’ll have earned 200x your stake.
To get some free spins you need at least three of the skull scatter symbols appearing anywhere on the reels. If the scatters happen to trigger the game and just happen to be on an active payline, then you get a payout for that too.Three get you five free spins, four will earn you ten and five sees you playing with 15. During the free spins that you get any wins will be doubled.
This is an enjoyable game and you certainly won’t need to be scared that you might not have fun playing it. The bonus game is a good one, the theme is well adhered to and it can provide spooky fun all year round.
