For many, Halloween is undoubtedly one of the highlights of the holiday calendar, (it is for us – big kids!) with people (particularly younger folk) getting dressed up to enjoy an evening of fun, food, games and all kinds of spooky activities.
However, this holiday hasn’t always been about fun. History.com reminds us that the Halloween tradition has its roots in the Celtic festival of Samhain during which festival goers would get dressed up and light fires to ward off ghosts.
Thankfully, at The Phone Casino we’ve moved on from its ghost-warding purpose and now spend Halloween in a much more fun and exciting way: playing online slots games! We take a look at some of the thrills on offer from our mobile slots.
Charms and Witches
Variance Medium to high
Charms and Witches is, well, a charming and bewitching online slot from Side City. In this 5×3 virtual slot, you’ll spin the magical reels in front of a decrepit and creepy-looking house. When you spin the reels you stand a chance to activate one of the slot’s various bonus games, which include:
- Spooky Bats Bonus: Bats may fly across the reels at any moment during play and turn random symbols into wilds. This bonus feature is triggered more often during free games.
- Free Games Feature: Land three or more scatters and the Free Games bonus will trigger. During these rounds, all prizes, excluding Pick Me prizes, are doubled. Players can also retrigger Free Games during the Free Games rounds.
- Pick Me Bonus: If the Pick Me symbol appears anywhere on reels two, three and four at the same time, the Pick Me Bonus will activate. All you need to do is select one of the symbols to win a cash prize and the option to pick again, or win all, in which case you’ll win three cash prizes!
If you’re looking for something that reminds you of shows like Charmed or Selina the Teenage Witch, be sure to check out this digital slot.
Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde
This slot from Iron Dog Studio is based on the classic story, The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde. As in the original story, the good doctor and his evil alter ego are the stars of the action that plays out in this 5×3 reel slot. Speaking of action, this game has a variety of extras for you to enjoy, including:
- Expanding wilds: When a wild symbol appears, it can expand to cover the entire reel. More than one wild symbol may appear at the end of each spin.
- Free spins: If you land a minimum of three Free Spins symbols, you will trigger the Free Spins bonus game. Players will receive 20, 30 or 50 free spins, depending on whether they land three, four or five free spin symbols.
- Even more wilds during free spins: During the Free Spins rounds, players stand a chance to land the Police Badge sticky spreading wild or Dr. Jekyll’s Potion expanding wild. The Police Badge spreading wild will expand in a random direction and cover four symbols until the next spin. Dr. Jekyll’s Potion will appear on reels two, three or four and will expand towards the first reel with each spin.
Even if you’re not a fan of online slots, this title is likely to transform the way you think about these games of chance.
Many fans of 80s films will instantly recognise these cute but mischievous little critters. In the 5×3 online slot based on the hit film and developed by studio Red7, players can enjoy a huge variety of thrills including:
- Wilds: The wild symbol can substitute for all symbols except scatters.
- Bonus: This is the Scatter symbol and appears on reels one, three and five.
- Stripe wilds: These wilds can multiply on the reels!
- The bonus selector: If you land three bonus symbols, you can trigger a variety of additional mini games.
If you like variety when it comes to slots, this game is definitely a title you should check out.
Variance Medium to High
Haunted Hallows is a simple, cartoony 3×3 slot game from developer Eyecon. Gamblers who like their games easy and entertaining will undoubtedly want to give the reels in this game a spin. And if you’re lucky, you might just trigger the game’s two bonus features:
- Free Games: If three candy symbols appear, you’ll win eight free games! And if fortune is looking your way, you can trigger up to seven more free spins for a total of 15 free games. Prizes for line and scatter wins are tripled during free games.
- Prize Pick: Land three jack o’lanterns and you’ll have three prizes to choose from.
As we mentioned earlier, this title keeps it simple and straightforward, so if you’re looking for something easy to play, this title may be just what you’re looking for.
Vampires vs Wolves
This title from Pragmatic Play sees supernatural vampires and wolves facing off. As with many other supernatural slots, the action plays out on a 5×3 reel. The game’s bonus features also draw inspiration from its titular characters, as you’ll find out in the list of exciting extras below:
- Wilds: The wild can substitute for any symbol except the scatters.
- Scatters: There are two scatter symbols: a dark castle and a wolf howling with a moon in the background. If you land five scatter symbols the Free Spins game will trigger.
- Free Spins: Once the Free Spins mode starts, you have the option to choose from two bonus games. The first is the Wolf Free Spins which lets you spin the reels 14 times! During these rounds, some of the characters can transform into wolves and become wilds. The second is Vampire Free Spins which you can spin eight times. During these rounds, vampires can become wilds and will remain in position until the end of the round.
Vampires vs Wolves may borrow from stories like Twilight, but there can be no doubt that it has a lot of excitement of its own to offer.
