Halloween is here.

And let’s face it, you lot aren’t likely to go trick or treating.  So instead, why don’t you have a read of these fascinating Halloween facts?  Then try your luck one of our creepy slot games. Prepare to be spooked Wombat fans, and if this is a them you are keen on you can read more on our other Halloween slot blog that showcases even more spooky games!

1 First celebrated in the US by Irish immigrants, Halloween arrived in North America in the 1800s and evolved from a Celtic tradition. The superstitious bunch would put food and treats out for the spirits they believed roamed the streets, to keep them happy and stop them getting into trouble. Then is spread all over the world to the Halloween we know today!

2 Halloween also originates from ‘All Hallow’s Eve’ the Christian celebration that falls on October 31st to celebrate the end of the harvest.

3 Another name for trick or treating is guising. The activity hails from the medieval custom of ‘souling’, when poor people would knock on the doors in their villages on All Hallow’s Eve asking for food in exchange for prayers for the dead.

4 Did you know that the first Halloween lanterns were not made from pumpkins? They were actually made from turnips. Doesn’t have the same ring though, does it?

5. Legend states that if you put your clothes on inside out and walk backwards on Halloween, you’ll see a witch at midnight. Good luck trying that without looking like an idiot.

6. The largest pumpkin ever grown was cultivated by an American called Norm Crave. His pumpkin weighed in at a mighty 836 pounds and he broke the world record in 1993.

7 In the US, Halloween is second only to Christmas in the amount of money spent each year. Mainly on tacky costumes and tooth-rotting sweets…

Anyway, back to the games!

Dark Thirst

Dark Thirst slot

If Vampires and bloodsuckers are your Halloween favourites then look no further than the gruesome grave-digging 5 reel Dark Thirst slot with 25 paylines. Have a go and sink your teeth into some ‘bloody’ big wins (sorry, I couldn’t help it…)

Dark Thirst looks and feels like a horror movie. The reels are completely transparent, and behind them there’s nothing but the black night sky – which makes the freaky blood-sucking symbols seem even more creepy!

 Lost Vegas

lost vegas slotIt’s Zombies v Survivors in this classic slot. Set in post apocalypse Las Vegas you can play in one of two spine-chilling game modes, as a member of the Undead or one of the band of Survivors.

But be careful; the way you choose affects how you’ll play in the lucrative bonus round!

Will you be a Zombie slot player or a Survivor? I suppose that depends which side of your bed you fell out of this morning.

If you are looking for a ghoulish game, then the Lost Vegas video slot will float your boat…

 Dead World
