Big Time Gaming released Castle of Terror, a six-reel video slot with a vampire theme, just in time for the Halloween season in 2022. From a safe distance, the castle seems like a peaceful, idyllic home of local noblemen. However, it hides a dark secret that has been kept for centuries. Better bring a bottle of holy water with you when you go sightseeing because a group of vampires will be after you.
Two types of free spins are waiting for you in this high-volatility game. Regular free spins and Enhanced Free Spins are at your disposal. The Holy Water feature is present both in the base game and during free spins. Exchange or gamble your winnings for a Free Spins round. You also have the option to buy the feature. The 2022 release offers a max payout of 51,720x the bet and comes with an RTP of 96.73%.
Enjoy a beautiful landscape set behind the reels. On the right, you will see a part of the local village and a windmill. On the left, there is the house of the local nobility, while the castle is placed on a hill above the house. Lady, Gentleman, Maid, and Gardener are the four main characters of the story. The Castle is the Scatter that triggers free spins.
The game is played on a 6x4 grid, and the slot pays left to right, beginning from the far-left reel. To win a payout, players need to land matching symbols on at least three successive reels. The Lady is the only symbol that will pay even for two of a kind.
Betting starts at $0.20. Every spin will cost you 20 coins. The maximum wager cannot go over $20 per spin. Use Autoplay when you get tired of hitting the Spin button. It allows up to 100 automatic spins. It also gives you the option to set your loss limit and the single win limit.
The Holy Water feature triggers randomly in the base game. It will splash on 2+ positions on the four central reels. If the splashed positions are occupied by either Lady, Gentleman, Maid, or Gardener, these characters will turn into Vampires and become Wilds. If the Wild is a part of the winning combo, it will also increase the winning multiplier by 1x.
There are two Scatters, the regular Silver Castle Scatter, and the Gold Castle Scatter. The latter appears only in the sixth reel. Three or more Scatters trigger free spins. If the Gold Castle is one of the triggering Scatters, you get the Enhanced Free Spins feature.
Three Scatters secure you 12 free spins. You get 3 extra free spins for every additional triggering Scatter. Freebies come with an unlimited win multiplier, which goes up by 1x each time any of the characters turns into a Wild. Holy Water will occur on every free spin. If you trigger the Enhanced Free Spins feature, the win multiplier goes up by 2x.
Each time the multiplier reaches a multiple of 20, you get 6 extra freebies. Every time you win 100x in one spin during the base game, you have the option to exchange your winnings for 12 free spins. If you ween between 25x and 100x, you can gamble your winnings for the Free Spins feature. Finally, there is the option to buy either regular free spins or enhanced free spins.
A castle filled with vampires could be a scary place for most of the players. Fortunately for them, the game can be played from the comfort of their homes, or on the go. The Big Time Gaming product fits perfectly on smaller screens.
