Again in autumn it is time for the creepy season. Monster pumpkins, ghosts and zombies come crawling out of their holes for Halloween. Microgaming presents the Halloween Slot, a brand-new slot game from Microgaming, to coincide with this event. This slot is based on the movie classic Halloween from 1978. In this first part of the series the still young Laurie Strode (played by Jamie Lee Curtis) is haunted by the masked psychopath Michael Myers for the first time. Now embark on a gruesome slot adventure.
Halloween slot review
Halloween is a slot machine with a very innovative design. The machine has five rollers. Three rollers have four rows and two rollers have three rows. However, the position of the rollers changes regularly. Winnings can be made on 50 different paylines. If you want to activate spins automatically, you can use the mandatory Auto Spin feature. A shoot can be started with a stake of 0,50€. A maximum of 200€ per spin can be played. According to Microgaming, the return to player percentage is 96.01%. This is a good range compared to other slot machines.
Halloween bonus spins
As mentioned before, the game has wandering reels. They move with each spin and stop at random. When your three scatters spin, the bonus game is activated. You can play with it until you activate either the Free spins or the Bogeyman Bonus feature. In the bonus game, you can spin cash prizes up to ten times your lap win.
The Bogeyman Bonus feature is a pick and click game. You have to choose between different sheets. Among the sheets are cash prices. In addition, the win multiplier increases by one factor after each cash prize won. If you win all ten cash prizes, you will also receive an additional bonus equal to 20 times the wager. If Michael appears among the leaves, you win half of the prizes collected and the feature ends.
The Free spin feature is activated when you shoot one of the four main characters Lynda, Annie, Loomis or Laurie. In this case you will be credited with nine free spins. The symbol that has activated the free spins appears with each spin. This increases the chances of winning. Unfortunately no more free spins can be won.
Halloween RTP is 96.01%
Halloween mobile slot
Yeah, no problem! You can also play this slot on mobile devices like smartphones and tablets. The Halloween slot machine is available for modern smartphones with Android or iOS. Simply call the machine from the lobby of your casino (or follow this link directly to the game). A spin can be activated on the mobile phone by clicking on the green arrow on the right. There is a small black arrow on the left side of the slot machine. Here you can open the game menu. There you can set the altitude for each turn. We think that this slot machine can also be played very well on smaller smartphones.
Our test result
With Halloween, Microgaming has succeeded in releasing a very good slot. Even the original soundtrack as background music creates a mood. Also optically the game makes a strong impression. The symbols are very well implemented. In addition, the mobile rolling feature is also very innovative and entertaining for the player. Regarding additional features this game also has a lot to offer. Cash prizes can be won in the Bogeyman Bonus feature. Additionally there is a free spin feature, which can also be very lucrative.
If there is perhaps a small point to criticize, then this is the fact that there are unfortunately no additional features in the basic game. You have to make it into the bonus game first to activate the aforementioned extras. All in all the Halloween Slot with the real Michael Myers is a great new Microgaming release, which gets a very good rating from us. If you want to try more scary slots, we recommend the zombie hit Lost Vegas or the more cheerful Lucky Halloween.
