If you think Halloween is all about Candy rather than scary and supernatural things – then it's time to find out whether "Halloween" the online slot game from EGT is truly a trick or a treat! There are certainly lots of baskets of candy to be found, and there are also lots of prizes to be won for finding scary things such as tarantulas, witches cats, bats, and the king and queen of Halloween Eve – if you're brave enough to look. There are also lots of themed bonuses and features to play including Wild Witches Hats, Extra Wild Pumpkins, and Spellbook Scatters, as well as a Gamble Feature and a Jackpot Cards Bonus.
Despite Halloween being an ancient festival, your very first treat comes in the form of being able to play on your favourite mobile gadgets like iPads or tablets. Your second treat is the game's staking system which allows slot players of all levels to find their perfect spin-stake through a combination of credits and credit-bets.
There is lots of scary stuff on this 20-line 5 x 3 reels game, and wins are greeted with scurrying spiders, meowing cats, and flying bats – though there's also plenty of candy showers.
You can start winning prizes from your very first spin and these start with some mysterious letters that are thought to be part of some ancient spells, and these pay up to 2,000 coins. Tarantulas and Candy Baskets both pay up to 3,000 coins, whilst bats and black cats both pay up to 4,000 coins, and the king and queen of Halloween both pay up to 10,000 coins.
The biggest instant win is for finding 5 Witches Hats which pay up to 20,000 coins, whilst Witches hats can also turn wild and substitute for other items to award more paytable wins. There's also an Extra Wild Symbol which is the Flaming Pumpkin, and when this appears on reel 5 it will turn all letter symbols wild. The Scattered Spellbooks appear on reels 2, 3 and 4, and when 3 appear simultaneously they will trigger the Free Spins Bonus of 10 free spins during which all prizes are doubled. The Bonus is also re-triggerable. You may also be awarded the Jackpot Cards Bonus after any spin. If this happens you will get to reveal instant prizes by turning over a choice of 12 cards, and the prizes don't stop until you have 3 cards of the same suit. You may also gamble any win of under 14,000 coins on the Gamble Feature, doubling your prize by correctly predicting whether a playing card will be red or black.
Spellbooks may allow you to add a little magic to the world, but this game's range of credits and credit-bets also allows you to find the perfect staking combination to suit your budget. Credits range from 0.01 to 1.0 coin, whilst credit bets range from 20-400.
With a universally enjoyed slot theme, big themed prizes, and some really fun and potentially very lucrative bonus games and features – Halloween is definitely a treat!
