The spooky season is upon us and now is the time to start putting together an epic Halloween costume and buying a whole lot of candy! Slot players can also celebrate this most haunted of holidays with some awesome themed casino games.
Microgaming – Halloween
We start off this scary list with a brand-new release from Microgaming. ‘Halloween’ is based on the 1978 film of the same name, which critics argue was responsible for introducing many slasher movie tropes and plot elements that characterize the genre.
The slot itself will make you want to double-check your doors and windows. The film’s unmistakable (and bone-chilling) soundtrack, which was created by director John Carpenter, accompanies the slot.
A trick-or-treat wheel keeps things exciting and features like Wandering Wheels and the Bogeyman Bonus will ensure some spook-tacular gameplay.
Oh, and check out this awesome pumpkin carving video Microgaming made too!
NetEnt – Blood Suckers I & II
We couldn’t very well compile a list of Halloween-themed slots without including these two insanely popular titles!
Players sank their teeth into Blood Suckers (the first one) a while back and consistently return to the high-RTP slot that keeps the scares and the wins coming.
Blood Suckers II has only recently been released for unrestricted play across multiple online casino brands and not a moment too soon! Players are simply loving the updated graphics and design of the new instalment
IGT – Day of the Dead
The end of October also marks the coming of another special day. The Día de Muertos is a Mexican holiday, celebrated on the 2nd November, when families commemorate and honour friends and family who have passed away.
The symbols and motifs of the colourful celebration, which lasts several days, have been exported worldwide and IGT’s Day of the Dead slot is just one of many places you will see the bright sugar skulls and other representations of this holiday.
Enjoy some Mariachi-style music as you spin these reels, which are stacked with all manner of Día de Muertos images. We think you’ll also like the Multi-Way Xtra system that IGT has designed, which rewards players with extra multipliers.
NextGen Gaming – Psycho
It wouldn’t be Halloween without the thrill of watching some terrifying horror flicks. And when it comes to quality horror cinema, the granddaddy of the genre – the inimitable Alfred Hitchcock – simply cannot be overlooked.
In NextGen’s scary slot ‘Psycho’, Hitchcock’s seminal 1960s movie comes to life once again. This slot combines a chilling soundtrack with images that will be familiar to horror movie fanatics – the flapping shower curtain, the flickering sign for the Bates Motel, and the endless rain.
Psycho is a 5-reel slot with a blood-curdling selection of features, including the excellent multiplier feature that will boost even the smallest win.
Playtech – Halloween Fortune II
If you’re not all that interested in horror but still enjoy a little Halloween fun, this is most definitely the slot for you. Much more ‘costume party’ than ’deranged killer’, this game brings a tamer, gentler experience to your screen.
Check out cartoon ravens, bottles of potions, cauldrons and the sultry trio of witches who inhabit the slots of Halloween Fortune. This 5-reel, 3-row slot is relatively standard in format but includes a high RTP and a tantalizing max win (10,000 coins).
888 – Nightmare on Elm Street
This 888 Casino exclusive game will haunt you for days! Resurrecting the terror of the 2010 remake of this movie, Nightmare on Elm Street will keep you up at night and entertain you at the same time.
Hastily scrawled card suits and blood-spattered symbols appear on the reels and every so often, Freddy himself will show up to make sure you don’t forget to be scared. Certain symbols trigger the playing of scenes from the film and a number of characters also appear.
A bonus game is available, a mini-game that allows players to select one of a number of icons with a 1,000x multiplier of their initial stake up for grabs.
