The Haunted House slot game is a 5-reel game that offers players up to 25 paylines, should they be brave enough to visit the spooky building of course.
Created by online casino developers Simbat, the game is different to other games found in their portfolio, and is designed to rectify a ‘normal’ casino game. All the in-play functions are displayed along the foot of the machine, while the reels are the focal point in a machine that isn't over the top, just there to spook players into enjoying the thrill of the Haunted House slot game.
Located just above the spin button on the machine is the autoplay function, this is for those that'd rather enjoy the Haunted House from a far and let the computer deal with entering the creaky doors and walking through the cobwebbed filled rooms. Therefore this feature is ideal for those that aren't a big fan of ghosts and spiders. Instead they'd rather enjoy the spectacle from a far in the safety of their own homes; now that sounds like an ideal option for the Haunted House slot game.
The graphics on Haunted House are immaculate and perfectly portray the spooky feeling that a slot game of this theme should do. Players will notice the machine shape has a feeling of a gravestone to it. Whether that's unintentional or not isn't certain, however the success of this display has created a graveyard feel about playing this game – and that's meant as a compliment!
At the top of the machine is an image of the ancient house in the middle of nowhere, with bats circling the building and a lightning fork in the background. Only one light is on in the house, while the title of the slot is created using sticks and lighting bordering the dark letters.
The reels, which take up most of the machine, have rain pouring down them in the background. Just one lamp is open as bats swoop across the screen. Occasionally, a lightning bolt strikes the reels and even a ghost travels from left to right across the 5 reels, adding to the sense that this is a game only for the brave.
Players will notice all the in-play buttons are located along the foot of the machine in an easy use manner. Slot enthusiasts can select how many lines they want to be active by clicking the 'select lines' button. For every click, the bet increases from 1 to 25 and then back to 1 again. For every click, the payline that has been added will appear on the reels, so players will know what they're adding to the screen and where the winning combinations need to align.
The fact that there are 25 paylines means players stand a great opportunity to win with every spin.
Players can change the stake by using the + or - icons, the amount varies from 1, 2, 5 or 10 cents per line. An increase in the number of lines being active has an impact on the overall stake players make per spin. Players should be wary of the bet max icon, as if players click that, they'll automatically spin the reels and stake the maximum than is allowed. So don't bother clicking that unless you are are certain that you want to wager that much on just the one spin.
There are three icons that trigger special prizes. Firstly, the spider on its web will trigger free spins if at least three of them appear anywhere on the 5 reels. Three of them will earn the player 5 free plays; four will lead to 10 free plays and five will earn the competitor the chance to spin the reels 25 times without spending a penny! Meanwhile, the ghost symbols that appear in reels 1 and 5 and at least 3 pumpkins appearing in an active payline will start the bonus game.
Players will then have to select a pumpkin from a selection of 10 and depending on which one the player picks, will earn anything from 100 to 1,000 coins! Demo videos of these games can be watched via the paytable window that is opened by clicking the button located in the bottom left hand corner of the machine.
This slot game is going to get players on the edge of their seat, and they should spin the Haunted House reels today!
