It was back at the start of September that we shared the trailer for the new online slot from Microgaming, Halloween [read more here] and on Friday 6th October, we got to spin the reels ourselves!
As soon as you open the game, there’s a sense of foreboding created with spooky background music. Add to that Jason appearing from behind the hedge at the side of the house whose porch you are stood on, and we were certainly a bit ‘spooked’.
After choosing the lowest bet amount, the five reels were span and a section of the game play area moved. It’s an expanse of three reels and it slides across the game play area on each spin. This is called the Wandering Reels.
In this area, giant images of the main characters from the film appear creating the chance to win impressive amounts (especially if the Wandering Reels are on one, two and three or matching symbols land on the other reels).
There are many bonus features on this game and whilst we didn’t manage to trigger them all in our time playing, they all look pretty interesting and with great winning potential!
Trick Or Treat Wheel Bonus
When you land three of the bonus wheels on the reels, you trigger the Trick or Treat Wheel Bonus.
Your excitement levels increase because when two bonus wheels land, the screen changes with a storm blowing anticipating the arrival of a third wheel.
You will collect multipliers on the wheel until you reveal free spins or the Boogeyman bonus.
If you land Jason on the Trick Or Treat Wheel, then you start the Boogeyman Bonus. You then have to choose leaves to reveal cash prizes, a knife or Jason.
Each cash prize revealed will also increase the multiplier for this bonus and a knife will block Jason. Finding Jason, without a knife, will mean the bonus round is over and you will win the cash value times the multiplier.
If you find all 10 cash prizes, you get an additional 20x multiplier!
You get free spins if you land Laurie, Loomis, Annie or Lynda on the Trick or Treat Wheel Bonus.
You are awarded 9 free spins and the character that triggered the bonus is the main feature on the reels and is stacked in the Wandering Reels.
Whilst we didn’t trigger any of the bonuses whilst playing, we really enjoyed it. It’s graphically rich and Microgaming have certainly done a good job in translating Halloween from a film to an online slot.
