Review and recommendations by our testing team
- Halloween slot has a partial similarity in the gameplay with Dark Queen slot as a function of replacing the minimum cost symbols with wild symbols when the extra wild symbol appears on the reels. Unlike Dark Queen, the gameplay of Halloween is expanded to have 10 free spins in it with multiplier x2. Like the slot analogue, this one, in my opinion, can bring the feeling to the player that the slot is “cheating” just to keep him play, as well as poor realizations of its potential during free spins.
- In the usual spins, without the bonus feature, Halloween gives often only small combinations, the cost of which varies from less than the bet to several bets, less often reaching larger values of 10x – 20x total bets. Also, at the same time, the slot makes quite a long series of spins without the win, as a result of which there are often significant losses of balance. Partial compensation or winnings (including large ones) are possible only with bonus feature, which is triggered when the extra wild symbol is issued to the fifth reel, which awards replacement of all minimum payment symbols with wild symbols.
- Triggering of the bonus feature occurs on average at a distance of 30-60 spins, but periodically, the slot increases it, activating it in series, including from the begin of the game. Despite the fact that the average win varies within just 20x – 30x bets, periodically the slot gives out larger winnings and during testing, we managed to get the combination worth 62x, and the developer recorded the win of 136x bets. Triggering of the feature it doesn’t mean that you will get good rewards, usually is giving just several bets and there are features where the winnings are equal to 0 because there are different symbols on reels 1 and 3.
- Free spins are triggered on average at a distance of 80-120 spins and sometimes in series of few free spins features almost in a row. At the same time, the chance of getting free spins from the begin of the session is small. The free spins can be re-triggered but during testing (thousands of spins), only 10 times were able to get +10 spins, and the maximum number of spin recorded by the developer was 30 (+20). We were trying to find some good winnings recorded by the provider but unfortunately, we failed, so, I believe this slot is not the best one from this provider.
- So, during free spins, only extra wild is triggered once, without forming an expensive combination. The average winning was 15x – 20x bets, with periodic total winnings less than 10x, and rarely reach 40x total bets. The maximum win in the slot was 64x bets, with 20 spins. At the same time, the fact of receiving the re-trigger does not guarantee a big win at all, and during the tests, with 20 free spins, there were winnings within just 15x – 25x. The maximum win recorded by the developer was 68x bets, with 30 free spins.
- Information about the risk game can be found here. Also, information about the JackPot game here.
In my opinion, Halloween slot is absolutely not suitable for playing with bonus money. While playing for real money, considering that, often the slot is “Cold”, and also does not have a big prize pool due to its low popularity, an, accordingly is not able to give a big win, I would not recommend long gaming sessions. So, only short gaming sessions are recommended. You should not wait for the bonus feature when you had a win of 50x bets or a series of small winnings with the help of the bonus feature in the usual spins since the potential for a large win in it (bonus game) is much lower.
