It’s the end of October, which means that spooky season is upon us! October 31st is when we care pumpkins, hand out candy to total strangers, and dress up in the creepiest outfit we can find to go to parties. It’s all a little strange when you sit back and think about it, but we all love a good party, and Halloween is as good an excuse for a party as any. For those of you who have plans to mark the day with a party or an event of some kind – or even if you’re only planning to head out trick-or-treating with your children – we hope that you have an excellent time.
There are, of course, many ways you could choose to celebrate Halloween. Online slots players know all about that – loading up a casino game like Fluffy Favourites. Ever since the concept of interactive themes came to online slots about fifteen years ago, just about every style and genre you could possibly imagine has been attempted. We’ve seen online slots based on makeup and beauty. We’ve seen online slots based on internationally famous celebrities. As you’ll almost certainly have guessed from the title of this article, we’ve also seen online slots based on spooky subjects that would make for perfect Halloween entertainment – and that’s what we’re here to talk about today!
You’re spoiled for choice if you’re planning to mark Halloween with a flutter on a spooky online slots game or two, but we’ll hopefully be able to make that choice a little easier for you. Here are five of the very best available to players at online slots websites right now!
House of Doom
It’s hard to think of a more foreboding title for an online slots game than “House of Doom,” so we have to congratulate the online slots provider Play’n Go for hitting the nail on the head with this June 2018 release. The purple and blue color theme hammers home the message that this is a spooky slot, and the in-game thrills back that atmosphere up. If you’ve come looking for Satanic-looking symbols and terrifying creatures, this slot has them. It’s also got a headache-inducing heavy metal soundtrack if that’s your thing! A mysterious character is known only as “The Seer” puts in occasional appearances to serve as an expanding wild, bringing additional prizes with each appearance. Free spins are available, as is a prize-picker feature called “Skulls of Abyss,” where the more skulls you find, the more money you win! RTP is 94.1%.
If you’re a horror movie fan, you’ll know that the first “Paranormal Activity” was one of the most terrifying horror films of the past twenty years. Some commentators even called it the scariest film ever! We’re not as enamored with the sequels, but fortunately for us, this online slots game by iSoftBet is based on the original. It was released in late 2016 (just in time for Halloween that year) and comes with 96.75% RTP. Plenty of sounds and sights from the film turn up in this online slots game – some of which will make you jump – so make sure you’ve braced yourself before you hit the spin button! Much of the action on the reels is about wild symbols, with randomly occurring wilds paired with additional wilds during free spins. Look to the bonus wheel for further rewards whenever you’re able to trigger it.
“Immortal Romance” by Microgaming falls into the category “old but great.” Most of its appeal lies in the fact that it’s an online slots game about vampires – and who doesn’t love vampires? The question of why we’re all so in love with vampires is one that psychologists have tried to answer – largely without success – but let’s put that aside for now. This classic slot, released in 2011, might not look as sharp and modern as the other four we’ve mentioned in this article, but it’s packed full of great features and includes 243 ways to win backed up with a generous 96.86% RTP. Each of the four vampire characters has their own dedicated and unique free spins feature to offer you, wild symbols stack whenever they land, and the maximum jackpot is a massive 12,150x your line bet. There’s a reason that players are still coming back to it nine years after it was released, so if you haven’t played it, come and find out for yourself.
We promised Halloween-suitable slots, so let’s take that as literally as possible by looking at “Halloween Horrors” by 1×2 gaming, which was released in October 2017. This is probably the best option for you if you’re a fan of the spooky theme, but you like your online slots to be uncomplicated and easy to follow. “Halloween Horrors” isn’t full of complicated bonus features and side games. It’s more of a traditional slot that’s been dressed up in a Halloween outfit. RTP is 96.26%, and the grid is a standard 5×3 arrangement containing 25 ways to win. Land five scatter symbols to net 400x your stake or line up five gravestones to win half that amount. Bonus offerings are kept to a minimum, but there’s a helpful wild symbol to add to your chances of putting wins together and a free spins feature that’s triggered by landing multiple scatters. It’s simple and effective – which is precisely what a lot of people want from their online slots.
It would be downright irresponsible of us to create a list of five Halloween-themed online slots without mentioning that there’s one based on the very first “Halloween” movie from the 1970s. We hope you like the film’s iconic soundtrack because you’ll be hearing it constantly when you play this slot! All of the main characters from the film are present, including Laurie Strode, Loomis, and of course, Michael Myers. This is a complex slot with 50 ways to win, 96.01% RTP, and more features than there are ways for Michael to kill people in the movies. Each of the four characters has their own free spins feature to offer to you, there’s an alternative reel set with different prizes on offer for you to unlock and a bonus wheel for big cash prizes. This is a slot that you could win big on this Halloween – just make sure that you stay out of Michael’s way!
