Brought to life by the chilling minds at 1x2 Gaming comes the spooky slot game Halloween Horrors. With 5 reels and 1 to 25 variable paylines, you have a chance at winning up to 750 coins per active payline! It is fair to say, that with such a great collection of monsters and ghouls that you'll find in this game, you will be both delighted and terrified!
Ghoulish cartoon symbols with eerie sound effects
The symbols are wonderfully designed cartoon-like with creepiness in mind starting from the lower paying poker symbols that ooze green slime. The higher paying symbols include cursed trees, blood curdling vampires, a witch's black cat, vampire bats, sinister ghouls and a witch's black hat. The symbols are cast against a dense green mist pierced only by the sparkling light of a full moon while the sound of thunder, howling wind and hooting owls bellow in the background. To make the mood just perfect, there is also the creepy sound of organ music playing intermittently throughout the game rounds.
Jack-o-lantern wild symbol
A jack-o-lantern symbol appears anywhere and acts as a wild symbol substituting for any symbol other than the skull scatter symbol and headstone symbol.
Skull scatter symbols with up to 15 free spins
The skull symbol acts as a scatter with 3, 4 or 5 symbols anywhere in the spaces awarding you a corresponding 5, 10 or 15 free spins. In addition, if 3 or more appear on a payline you win corresponding coins of 22, 80 or 400. An additional headstone symbol may appear only when the free spins feature is triggered during which three or more appearing on a winning payline pay out corresponding coins! While the free spins feature is active, all wins are automatically doubled which could lead to increased prizes!
Spooky theme and low to medium variance
The developer 1x2 Gaming lists the theoretical return to player (RTP) for this slot at 96.26%, and the game has a low to medium variance, as you will win smaller amounts regularly, but you also have a good shot at a larger amount of money. The bets in Halloween Horrors can be for as little as £0.01 and as large as £62.50 with coin values ranging from £0.01 to £0.50. The graphics, music and sound effects were super and very effective in supporting what I thought was a very entertaining theme. I would recommend giving this slot a try.
