Halloween Arrives Early At Microgaming Casinos

October 6, 2017

The much awaited branded slot game from Microgaming titled Halloween has just gone live. It will give players many scary nights till the festival is actually celebrated. It is based on the 1978 American independent slasher film that was directed and scored by John Carpenter. It starred Donald Pleasence and Jamie Lee Curtis in her film debut. Michael Myers on Halloween night in 1963 at the age of six murdered his sister. 15 years later, he returns to to continue his killing spree.

Halloween is a 50 paylines slot game with the reel set representing Michael’s dark and derelict house. As in the film, Michael persistently stalks on the reels, lurking in the window or behind the clothesline. The game also features iconic audio visual bites from the movie, along with the chilling soundtrack.

Feature rich is the appropriate word to describe Halloween video slot. The Wandering Reels feature has a group of three reels spinning together. These reels contain Jumbo Blocks which are large 3x4 high symbols. The Wandering Reels can stop in one of three positions at random in the base game and this adds to the sense of anticipation again linking it to the movie. The feature allows for big wins, especially when it rests on the leftmost position.

The Trick or Treat Wheel Bonus is another feature with suspense built in. It offers players the opportunity to multiply their stake with cash prizes, until they enter either the Boogeyman Bonus or Free Spins. The Boogeyman Bonus is a second screen game that takes place inside Michael Myers’ eerie house. Players must escape Michael, as finding him ends the bonus round. Raking the autumn leaves reveal cash prizes. The multiplier increases with every pick. A leaf may reveal an immunity weapon, which can be used to prolong the bonus round Michael is encountered. Free Spins are triggered on the bonus wheel if the player lands on Laurie, Loomis, Annie or Lynda. 9 free spins are awarded, during which, the triggering character will replace all other high symbols, including Jumbo Blocks. The free spins round takes place at night time, when Michael is most likely to be active.

David Reynolds, Games Publisher at Microgaming pointed out that the team creating this game was a big fan of the movie and brand, and the passion showed. Quoting Sheriff Brackett from the movie, he concluded, ‘It's Halloween, everyone's entitled to one good scare’. Halloween can be played at all Microgaming online casinos like All Slots, Golden Riviera and Royal Vegas.
