Online casino software developer Microgaming’s Tim Burton-esque trawl through teen screams, Halloweenies, was a capable bit of slots fun, and online slot developer Playtech’s Halloween Fortune is another good addition to the genre. But is it a trick or a treat?
On the Reels…
Well, if you’re looking for a wacky world of nerdy ghouls and weedy beasties in this 5-reel, 20-payline slot, think again.
As soon as you load up the game you’re welcomed by three witch stunners: beautiful but deadly. They’ll come into play later, but for now, look out for the pumpkin as it acts as the Wild.
Get five of the ghoulish veg and you’ll bag the top prize of 10,000 coins. As with most slots, it substitutes all symbols other than the Scatter and the Bonus logo.
Hit Reels 1 and 5 For Free Spins
The scatter is the Halloween Fortune logo. Getting three or more of the game logos anywhere on the reels will win you cash.
But enough of the pumpkins and logos. We mentioned the lovely ladies, right? Well, simply get a witch’s cauldron on the first and fifth reel and you’ll activate the bonus round. Pick one witch, earn free spins.
Easy enough, right? Well, there’s more. You’ll then be presented with different potions, each carrying a different multiplier. Choose correctly and you can earn 10 times your bet.
As I mentioned at the top of the review, Halloweenies is a perfectly atmospheric slot for a ghostly night in, but it’s probably worth considering Microgaming’s mad take on the Alice in Wonderland story, Alaxe in Wonderland, if you want something really strange to play during the Halloween period.
In the meantime, Halloween Fortune offers enough fast-paced frantic action and bonus features to keep you sated until the Season of the Witch comes round again.
