Halloween is a wonderful time of the year, the pagan festival that swept the nation in favour of dressing up as ghouls and goblins and eating loads of sweets has been immortalised in a spooktastic online slot game. Explore 5 reels of Frankenstein, skeleton and candy symbols and enjoy Halloween all year round when you play this scary slot game.

About The Developer
Microgaming pride themselves on their relentless imagination and creativity. From their Isle of Man home base, their brightest minds inspire their greatest achievements – an equally relentless catalogue of diverse, immersive online gaming solutions. The proof of Microgaming’s brilliance is in the number of games they have published, currently entertaining customers around the globe.

About The Game 
From the title, it’s quite obvious that this online slot game is Microgaming’s solution to the annual Halloween season. However, given the amount of character they have built into this 5 reel, 20 payline online slot, it is more than worth a few spooky spins of your time at any time of year. With eerie, captivating sound effects to accompany their quirky visuals, and wins that will last well into the new year – no matter what time of year we play – Halloweenies is an engaging, versatile game.

From £0.01 to £50.00 per spin, we can take a peek into the treats that lurk in the depths of this spooky game. The cartoonish symbols cover a range of Halloween goodies and characters. A Werewolf, a Witch, a Frankenstein’s Monster, and a Hooded Skeleton are the character symbols – although it is unclear whether these characters are children in fancy dress, or real monsters masquerading as children in fancy dress!

The lower value symbols are a range of Halloween treats including Love Hearts, All Sorts, Gummy Treats and Candies. There is also a Wild symbol, made of four quirky monster characters trying, and failing, to properly spell the word Wild, a menacing Pumpkin Bonus symbol, and a sinisterly friendly Rabbit Scatter.

The Wild will substitute for any other symbol than the Scatter and Bonus symbols, and when we land a Wild win we see the odd foursome come to life – plus receive a nice multiplier based on our stake. Three of more Scatter symbols leads to a spooky 13 Free Spins, with a 3x multiplier on the subsequent wins, and 3 to 5 Pumpkins trigger the Pick a Pumpkin Bonus. In this feature, we get to choose from a selection of Pumpkins scattered around a graveyard to choose our prize.

Just like waiting to see what we have in our Halloween treats bag, the win from this Bonus Game is unknown until we uncover it and, when combined with the spooky sound effects and audio of the game, make Halloweenies a genuinely charming seasonal slot. The sound of a sinister knock at the door, each time a reel lands, is just one of many cool, innovative details Microgaming have built into this captivating online game.

The Verdict 
Whether the season is upon us or not, at Dream Jackpot we enjoy anything slightly spooky, especially when it’s also incredibly fun to play. Microgaming’s Halloween themed online video slot is a pleasantly charming game to enjoy at any time. It’s not too scary or intense, and the fun is augmented by the high volume of wins that come from the reels. 8/10 from us, for this quirky, spooky game.
