The Ghouls slot review
Horror-themed online slots always do well with the slots aficionados, and it’s good to see lovable slot developers Betsoft Gaming are no different.
There may be no customary slick 3D graphics to find here but the icons that are here look well-rendered, and it’s surely no accident that this slot will do well on mobile devices. The reels spin smoothly, it looks great, and the bonus features are no-nonsense.
‘The Ghouls’ has plenty of iconic horror figures on the five reels: a mummy, a cat, Frankenstein’s monster, a witch, a howling wolf, a big black spider, Dracula and a tombstone.
Visit the Haunted House to Win 5,000x Your Line Bet
The biggest payer on the reels, however, is the haunted house icon which pays 5,000x your line bet if you hit five across the reels. Hit five houses on the maximum bet and you’ll win the game’s progressive jackpot too!
Wild Pumpkins For Scary Bonuses
The evil pumpkin is the Wild, and it substitutes for all symbols other than the Scatters and jackpot symbols.
Pick Your Prize in the Ghouls Feature
The Tombstone symbol is the Scatter and it triggers The Ghouls Bonus feature if you hit three or more across the reels.
Essentially it’s a Pick ‘em bonus as you’d find in other Betsoft games like their sci-fi-themed Out of this World slot, where you’ll be presented with six gravestones. Simply pick from the graves to reveal cash prizes.
Encounter Dracula to Earn up to 20 Free Spins
Hit three or more Dracula Scatters anywhere, meanwhile, and you’ll trigger the free spins feature. Depending on how many Scatters you hit initially, you’ll win 5, 10 or 20 free spins.
There’s no doubting Betsoft’s Halloween visit is worth a look. It’s nice to see free spins in one of Betsoft’s more classic-looking slots, but the Pick’em bonus doesn’t exactly set the world alight.
And if you enjoy this, check out another Betsoft slice of weirdness, the horror-themed House of Fun is a definite must-play. And the equally eerie Halloween-themed slot, Halloweenies, from Microgaming is one that you should make a zombie shuffle for too.
