Trick or treat?
With not one but two wild symbols, this seasonal pokie, which has five reels and 20 paylines, is definitely a real treat. You will get a lot more than a handful of sweets when you spin the reels to try to match three or more playing card symbols, scary spiders, baskets of sweets or a lucky black cat. There is also an orange glowing pumpkin, of course, which also features as the ‘o’ in the title at the top, and a glamorous witch and a vampire.
There is plenty to keep you entertained, with a number of extra features including scatters, wilds and extra wilds, gamble and a jackpot round. You will instantly know when you have won, as spiders scurry across the screen, cats meow and bats fly as you are showered with sweets.
The playing card symbols Jack to Ace all pay out five coins for matching three, 20 coins for four and 100 coins for a set of five. Next come the huge basket of tooth-decaying sweets and the menacing-looking spider, which net you 15, 35 or 150 coins. The black cat, prowling against the full moon in the background, pays out 20, 50 or 200 coins; however, the highest-paying symbols are the beautiful witch and the male vampire.
Getting three of these will net you 25 coins, four pays out 50 coins and five bags you 200. Spin a witch’s hat for the first wild and some great prizes, paying 1,000 coins for five and substituting all symbols except the other wild and the scatter. The classic Halloween pumpkin acts as the extra wild and appears only on the fifth reel, substituting all other symbols except the scatter.
It turns the playing card symbols into wilds, which substitute all other symbols apart from the scatter. The scatter itself is a giant book of spells and appears on the three middle reels, paying out 40 coins for three or more; however, what you really need the scatter for is the free spins round, which is signalled by a giant wall of fire. You will get 10 free spins, which each have a two x multiplier, giving you the chance of some great Halloween treats.
Gamble your winnings
Halloween benefits from a gamble feature, which lets players double any winnings of less than 700 coins they have bagged by guessing on red or black. There is also a jackpot cards feature, giving you even more chances to get massive prizes just by matching three suits out of 12 cards.
This bonus game is randomly triggered, which means you don’t have to decide how much to stake. The amount you win is determined by how much one of the four jackpots at the top of the screen contains.
This pokie is a great mix of the spooky supernatural and the classic traditions of Halloween and will appeal to a broad range of players.
