About Halloween Slot
Michael Myers is never shy of a comeback. Though he is shy of showing his face. We do get the chance to get up close and personal with him in Halloween, a five reel slot with 50 pay-lines. Based on John Carpenter’s iconic film from 1978, it makes you wonder why it took nearly 40 years to bring the terrible Michael Myers to our reels. There is a dark, eerie feel to the game that echoes the style of the movie as we see Michael Myers lurking in the background. We also see Telephones, Clown Masks, Knives, Guns and symbols that help reenact the film on the reels. Shivers abound.
Just as Michael Myers’ house is as iconic a movie set as we would care to list, Microgaming pulls off a real coup with its game design of these five reels. The Wandering Reels feature sees three reels spin together and stop in one of three positions on the reel case of Michael Myers’ house. This gives three reels four rows on any given spin, boosting our pay-lines and our pay potential thanks to the Jumbo Blocks – giant symbols that help to create multiple winning combinations.
Three or more of the Bonus Wheel Scatter symbols triggers the Trick or Treat Wheel feature. We spin the wheel to collect a cash prize up to 10 times our stake and re-spin again and again until we activate either the Boogeyman Bonus or Free Spins feature. The former sees us pick from a selection of autumnal leaves to reveal a cash prize with a multiplier. This multiplier increases after each prize is won, but if we find Michael we only win half the amount and must watch a sinister clip to end the round. If we find Lynda, Annie, Loomis or Laurie in the Trick or Treat Wheel we receive nine free spins, and one of these high symbols will replace all others.
