Microgaming celebrates the iconic 1978 horror film with its 5-reel x 50 payline Halloween™ video slot. The game promises to scare and thrill in equal measure with its frightening ambiance and multiple bonus features, including Wandering Reels, a Trick or Treat Wheel, a pick-me style Boogeyman bonus game, and free spins. Halloween can be played on desktop, tablet, and mobile devices.
- Four characters from the movie – Lynda, Laurie, Annie and Loomis – make up the high-value symbols for this game.
- The Halloween™ game logo is wild and substitutes for all symbols barring the scatter to form winning combinations.
- The Bonus symbol acts as the scatter and is instrumental in the bonus feature.
- Wandering Reels with Jumbo Blocks
This is a newly introduced feature that consists of three reels spinning together made up of large 3×4 symbols that span across the reels. These spinning reels can come to a halt at random in one of three positions throughout the game, thus dictating the next order of play.
- Trick or Treat Wheel Bonus
Landing three or more Bonus scatters anywhere in view will activate this feature. The player is allowed to spin the wheel for potential cash wins up to 10x their stake. The wheel can continuously be spun until the Boogeyman bonus-or Free Spins feature is triggered.
- Boogeyman Bonus game
This feature allows players to pick from leaves to expose cash prizes with multipliers that increase by 1 every time a prize is won. Should players uncover all 10 cash bonuses, they win an extra prize of 20x their stake. Michael is also hidden among the leaves, and if he is revealed only half the prize is awarded and the feature ends. But there’s a knife hidden too – find that and block Michael from ending the feature!
- Free Spins
Trigger this feature when landing any one of the four character symbols during the Trick or Treat Wheel feature. 9x free spins are awarded, and only the character that triggered the spins will feature to produce wins. This feature cannot be re-triggered.
During this feature, wild symbols are stacked up to 3 symbols high on the centre reel, and it can be re-triggered. Note that the Win Freezing Feature is active during the free spins as well.
