October 31 is when people from all around the world are dressing up, wearing crazy masks and celebrating. There are many games devoted to this date, but the Halloween slot machine by the EGT might be one of the most popular games, according to poles in the community.
Slot machine Halloween consists of:
- 5 Reels
- 3 Rows
- 20 Optional Paylines
Even though we see more and more 243 and 1024 ways to win machines, EGT decided to go with the simple format, as ways-to-win systems had a slight amount of negative feedback from the community. However, they allowed gamblers to change the number of active pay lines, which is done by clicking one out of five options right next to the reels: 1, 5, 10, 15 or 20 lines.
A great thing about Halloween is how simple the process of setting up the spin is. Besides adjusting the number of active patterns, players can also choose between five bets per line: 1, 2, 5, 10 and 20.
The Halloween Stake Range
When bets per line and active paylines are added up (multiplied) together we get these limits:
- The minimum possible total stake sits at 1 credits (equal to $1), with only one pay line active
- The maximum goes all the way up to 400.00 credits, when all 20 win lines are turned on with 20 coins on each one
A huge bet span like this one is a must-have for all the slot machines nowadays, as that shouldn’t be something that prevents people from playing the game they like, just because allowed bets are too low or high. This allows both high rollers and low bettors to get satisfied and never worry about their balance crushing down
A slot machine without free spins, bonus signs and multipliers is like a guitar with no strings. The universal thing about gamblers all around the world is that everyone likes to see unique and well-designed bonus rounds, especially when they are high-rewarding like ones in the Halloween.
There are 10 regular signs, and their values and possible combinations are all presented in the paytable. At least three of a kind need to connect on an active pay line in order to trigger a prize.
There are three special signs in the game:
- The Wild icon
- The Extra Wild Addition
- The Scatter symbol
For those who are new to slot machines, a wild is a symbol which appears at any position on the screen and substitutes for any regular sign (note that it does not substitute for the scatter or any other bonus symbols). Besides helping you with other signs, it also has the highest instant payouts, making it x2 more worth than the highest paying regular.
The Extra Wild sign appears only on the last (5th) reel and not only that it substitutes like the regular wild, but it also turns J, Q, K and A regular icons into wilds, which act like the classic Wild then, almost guaranteeing that there is going to be a winning combination somewhere on the reels.
When three scatter signs appear in any row in the three middle reels, a player is awarded 10 free spins along with the x2 multiplier. All of the winnings are accumulated and doubled at the end of the feature, usually resulting in massive wins.
If three more scatters appear during the feature itself, it is not re-triggered because additional 10 gratis rolls are added to the counter. Note that an alternative set of reels is used during the free spins, and not the regular one.
There are four Jackpots available in the game separated into 4 levels represented as card suits – clubs, diamonds, hearts and spades, listed respectively from the lowest to the highest one.
Any jackpot can be triggered by anyone playing, as bets qualifying for the Jackpot prize range from 0 to 100.000, which basically means everyone’s in. The jackpots are available in both real money and fun version, but they have completely different prize pools, as one resents demo credits, while the other one includes real money.
