Based on the 1978 slasher movie of the same title by John Carpenter, Halloween is a Microgaming-powered online video slot that takes you to the Midwestern town of Haddonfield, Illinios. You will meet the entire movie cast including Michael Myers, a psychopath who killed his sister on Halloween night at the age of six. The slot features realistic graphics and sound effects that create an ominous atmosphere, just like the horror movie it is based on.
Played at 5 reels and 50 paylines, Halloween offers innovative and rewarding bonus features. One of them is Wandering Reels, a group of linked reels that spin together and may contain Jumbo Blocks, consisting of up to 12 identical symbols. The highlight of the game is Trick or Treat Wheel Bonus awarding cash prizes and free spins with one of Jumbo Blocks boosting your chances of winning lucrative payouts, up to 200,000 coins in a single spin.
The reels of the Halloween slot are set against the background depicted as the porch of the Strode family's house. Behind the hanging clothes you will see Michael Myers or Boogeyman lurking with a knife. High-value symbols are depicted as the movie characters Annie, Lynda, Loomis and Laurie while theme-related icons like the revolver, clown mask, knife and so on make up the lower ends of the paytable. Wild is represented as the glowing carved pumpkin with a knife while the symbol labelled Bonus stands for Scatter. Whenever you create a winning combination with one of character symbols, you will hear their line from the movie.
How to Play
The game features 5 reels and 50 paylines but the actual paylines are determined by Wandering Reels which will be explained in detail in the next chapter. You can wager up to 8 coins per line at the coin denomination between $0.01 and $0.50, so your total bet can be anywhere between $0.50 and $200 per spin.
Press the central Spin button or activate up to 100 automatic spins to enjoy the show to the fullest. You have to align at least 3 symbols of a kind in succession to win a prize.
Strategy & Tips
Wild will complete your winning combinations by replacing all regular symbols. One every spin, the Wandering Reels feature will make 3 framed consecutive reels move to the left or right. These reels are 4 positions high and can contain a Jumbo Block which can cover up to 3x4 positions on the selected reels. Thanks to this feature, you can win some huge payouts throughout the game.
When 3 Bonus Scatters appear on the reels, the Trick or Treat Wheel Bonus feature is activated. You will be offered to spin the wheel to win cash prizes going up to 10x your bet or 9 free spins with the triggered character features on the reels. If the wheel stops on the Boogeyman symbol, the Boogeyman Bonus feature is triggered, offering you to turn over leaves to reveal cash prizes with multipliers increasing by 1. If you reveal the Boogeyman symbol, the game ends and you win a half of your bet. Revealing the knife will protect you from the Boogeyman once, so that you can continue collecting up to 10 cash prizes and winning a 20x your bet bonus.
The fans of the genre will love to hear that the game is fully optimised for mobile play, so you can revive your favourite horror story wherever you are. With the same level of quality as its online counterpart, the mobile version of the game will send shiver down your spine, so it takes courage to trigger the bonus features and win hefty payouts on the go.
