Halloween Fortune by Playtech
Playtech offers to “transport players to the wicked world of witchcraft” as long as they’re brave enough to embark on the journey. Having arrived to a chilling outdoor location in the middle of the night, you’ll be chasing winning combinations across 5 reels and 20 paylines. There are frequent wins to look forward to as well as substantial payouts claimable with the help of a few magical symbols. Landing 5 pumpkin Wilds will win you 10,000× bet per line, and as few as two Bonus icons appearing on reels 1 and 5 will trigger the Witches’ Brew Bonus game. You’ll be prompted to choose a witch to brew magic potions and award up to 20 free spins. Picking one of the six potions reveals free games multiplier of up to x10. Additional spins can be won over and over again by landing the triggering combination while you’re still playing on the house.
Halloween Fortune II by Playtech
Because you enjoyed being spooked (and handsomely rewarded!) by Halloween Fortune, Playtech decided to follow it up with a sequel. The three attractive witches have learnt new tricks and are back to help you win by stretching over 3 positions. Scatters are capable of paying up to 100x your total bet, and landing 3 or more launches 10 free games. You’ll start spinning with a x2 multiplier which is then increased by 1 after every 2 rounds. At the same time, pumpkin becomes locked Wild and sticks to the middle position on reel 3 throughout the duration of the feature.
House of Doom by Play ‘n GO
House of Doom is a highly volatile video slot paying over 10 lines. Be warned, this game looks and sounds far scarier than Playtech’s Halloween Fortune serial, but if you brave up, there’s up to 2,500x your bet to be won. On each spin, one reel is randomly highlighted and causes Wilds to stretch over the entire reel. When 3 Scattered game logo symbols appear simultaneously, you win 10 House Of Doom spins with Scatter acting as an additional substitute icon. Between 2 and 5 reels are highlighted while you’re spinning for free and each regular and Scattered Wild symbol that land on these reels fully expand. Scattered skulls are tasked with triggering Skulls Of Abyss bonus game which prompts you to pick and click to win as many cash prizes as you can.
Happy Halloween by Play ‘n GO
Play ‘n GO has treated us to another great Halloween-themed slot, this one looking cute by playing an eerie tune and using spooky sound effects. Game symbols designed to fit the horror theme need to land on one of 50 paylines and on consecutive reels in order to pay. Scattered witches will be a welcome sight as three showing up at the same time activate free spins feature. On each of 10 spins, two additional Wilds will appear stacked on all reels except for the first, offering an opportunity to win as much as 1,000,000 coins.
Pumpkin Smash by Yggdrasil Gaming
Yggdrasil’s Pumpkin Smash is out to entertain rather than scare the wits out of you. Players are invited to join Day of the Dead celebration taking place somewhere in South America and frequented by cheerful skeletons. You’ll need to land at least 2 pumpkin symbols to launch the Pumpkin Smash bonus game, with 1 pumpkin piñata awarded for each bonus icon. This is when fun begins as one gets to smash pumpkins and collect 2 to 20 cash prizes hidden inside each. The bigger the pumpkin, the more prizes it contains. Pumpkin smashers get to win free spins trigger or extra spins, a multiplier of x2 to x7 applied throughout the free games round, and up to 2,000 coins.
Halloween by Microgaming
Microgaming’ Halloween edition, inspired by the 1978 blockbuster of the same name, is a sinister 5-reel and 50-payline game which takes players to Michael Myers’ childhood home and offers them to interact with the original cast. Wandering reels, a group of 3 reels spinning together, move right or left with each spin. The position they stop in determines which reels and lines are played with Jumbo Blocks 3×4 positions large. The Trick or Treat Wheel Bonus prompts you to spin the wheel and win cash prizes worth up to 10x your stake, free games, or a Boogeyman Bonus. The latter will have you picking through leaves to find instant rewards and paying extra 20x the bet if you manage to collect all 10 before stumbling upon the boogeyman. Making the wheel stop on an image of Annie, Lynda, Loomis or Laurie awards free spins with the triggering character replacing the other high-paying symbols and thus significantly increasing your winning chances.
