Halloween Slot Review
The fact that Microgaming released Halloween is some what baffling to us here at All Gambling Sites. This is not because Microgaming are a terrible company. It is more the fact that most of the other ‘horror movie-themed slots’ have come from NetEnt. That being said, it is nice that a different company is doing something now. Brings a bit of fresh air into the mix.
How to Play Halloween Slot
Halloween is a Microgaming slot. It was first launched in 2017. It offers 5 reels and 50 paylines. The minimum bet per spin is 50p. The maximum is £200. This makes it one of the more expensive slots from Microgaming to get started in. This is a medium to high variance slot.
Now, this game is very well-themed. Like, seriously well-themed. If you have seen the Halloween movies, then you are going to feel right at home. It uses pictures of the characters and has some sound clips thrown in for good measure.
We doubt that it is going to attract many people who were not a fan of the movies, but I do not think that this is something that Microgaming were going for here so that is fine.
While there are several features in the Halloween slot which may seem new to you (we are going to discuss those in a short while), there is nothing here which is going to be especially confusing, thankfully. It is hard to imagine who this game is aimed at.
I personally reckon that both new and experienced players will find something of note in Halloween but they must also love the movies. If not, probably going to be a bit bland for you.
Bonus Rounds & In Game Features
The feature which occurs on ever spin is the wandering reel. As you play the game, you will notice that one of the supports for the shack moves about a bit. This support can stop in one of three positions. Where it stops will dictate the number which paylines are played. The reels in this feature will have a jumbo blocks symbol. This, essentially, means that the same symbol can appear over multiple reels at once.
There is a bonus feature which is triggered when you get three or more of the scatters. This is a ‘Trick or Treat’ re3el. You spin it. You then get a cash prize. The cash prize is never going to be that high. It is a maximum of 10x your initial stake but you can keep spinning the reel until you hit another feature. There are one of two.
The one you will be encountering the most is the Boogeyman bonus feature. This is a basic ‘pick’ feature where you select leaves to reveal a cash prize. Each time you uncover a cash prize, your multiplier goes up by 1. If you find the Michael (i.e. the scary chap from the Halloween movies) then what you have won is halved and the game ends. There are ten cash prizes to find. If you pick them all up, you get back 20x your initial stake.
The other bonus round which can be triggered is a Free Spins feature. You can only trigger this if you get the Lynda, Annie, Loomis, or Laurie symbols in the Trick or Treat Wheel. You will get 9 free spins. You can’t trigger more free spins, but the Wandering Reel is going to be more of a lucrative feature here which more than makes up for it.
Honestly, we seem to have won the most during the Boogeyman Feature, but anything is going to give you some cash which is nice.
Halloween Mobile Slot Machine
Of course, this is the age of mobile slots which means that there is a stellar version of the Halloween mobile slot available. This means that you can enjoy fantastic graphic and great sound. I personally tried out the Halloween mobile slot on several devices and it seems to work incredibly well.
