Happy Halloween slot review
Online slots have been inspired by events across the calendar ever since the first game was released onto the internet. One of those events that has been the basis of themes for a number of slots is Halloween. One of those slots is Happy Halloween from Scandinavian developer Play'n Go. The fact you can win up to 1 million coins means you don't need much persuaded to at least give this slot a try!
Happy Halloween is a 5 reel, 50 payline slot that offers everything you would want from a Halloween-themed slot... well, on the visual front. From the intro movie to the reels spinning against the background of what looks like a haunted house. This will ignite feelings of nostalgia within you and those days when you and your friends would be out trick or treating and you'd dare each other to knock on the door of crazy Miss Lewis's house.
Hauntingly Tasty Symbols
The music in the background also sets the scene but it's the symbols that give the eeriness to this slot. They are a range of different haunting candy treats such as bat cookies, spider strawberries, candy apples with a bone for a stick, skull cupcakes, ghostly gummy sweets, catty jelly, and a number of ghastly characters such as Frankenstein's monster, a mummy, vampires, and Noose the phantom.
Win Big with Stacked Pumpkin Wilds!
The Wild symbol is represented by the evil-looking pumpkin. It can substitute for all other symbols, except for the Scatters, to complete any winning combinations that might appear across the reels on any spin. These Wilds can also appear as Stacked Wilds to increase your chances of big wins.
Earn 10 Free Spins and a 4x Multiplier
The Scatters are shown on the reels as a witch. You will need to land three or more of these symbols to trigger the free spins bonus round and earn a 4x multiplier. Once triggered, you will be rewarded with 10 free spins. In addition, on every free spin, there will be two extra Stacked Wilds that appear on reels 2, 3, 4, and 5. It is also possible to re-trigger the free spins by landing three or more witch Scatters on the reels on a free spin. You can re-trigger up to 20 free spins.
Unfortunately, this slot is very much a case of being short but sweet. It's visually stunning, the music is spot on, and the fact you can win a potential 1 million coin jackpot is certainly not something you should ignore. That massive jackpot makes it feel like Play'n Go's illustrious Pimped slot and that is no bad thing.
If you are looking for similar Halloween-themed slots to get yourself in the mood for this weekend then you might want to also check out the creepy Halloweenies slot from Microgaming or Playtech's very own Halloween Fortune. This slot is up there with those top titles though. It might not offer a lot but it will definitely deliver the fun factor.
