The wombat says: We all love the chance to dress up as a scary vampires and flesh eating zombies, right? Well, if you do, then you´re in luck as there´s something of the night about this game, muck like the Troll Hunters slot machine and a number of others that we could mention.
This wombat is a little bit on the bemused side when it comes to the 31st October- I’m often in my burrow on lockdown…I don’ mind the vampires, but the trick or treaters? Now they’re scary.
But anyway, the rest of you can enjoy blood-curdlingly fun all year-round, thanks to Inspired Entertainment’s Book of Halloween slot. And if you don´t, well we have plenty of games that won´t give you a fright – like the Moon Princess slot machine for instance.
Is this game a chiller AND a winner? Let’s spin and see.
Look and Feel
Your play takes place on transparent reels and the spooky animated graphics are a sight to behold, Wombat fans. The reels are set in a dark graveyard, with a deserted mansion behind perched ominously on a craggy hill against a full moon. The graphics are sharp as a tack and come with an atmospheric eerie feel. All we need is Norman Bates’ mum in her rocking chair and we are good to go.
The soundtrack is just as creepy; in fact I had to play with the sound turned down… EEK!
Trick or treat yourself to the Book of Halloween slot wins over 3 rows, 5 reels and 10 pay-lines! Quite a few less than the likes of the Lock a Luck slot with its 243 Ways to Win and that´s because this game is pretty volatile.
Your symbols are made up of a disembodied green zombie hand as the highest value icon (hmmm, delicious), a gruesome gravestone, a bubbling cauldron of green goo (Creme de Menthe latte anyone?), plus a Jack O’ Lantern pumpkin with glowing eyes.
The standard Ace through 10 playing cards make up the lower value icons in this game. The Wild here is a red leather-bound Spell-book, which will substitute for all icons on the reels – and is also the key to activating the Bonus game so look out for them.
Free Spins and Bonus Features
Land 3x or more of the Spell-book icons anywhere on the reels and it’s a bone-chilling 10x free spins for you with x2 bonus cash win.
4x Spell-book icons, also gets you 10x free spins with a terrifyingly high x20 multiplier.
And finally, if you’re lucky enough to trigger the Free Spins with 5x of the Spell-book icons – you’ll get those 10 free games with a x200 multiplier.
Yes, you heard, x200!
And that’s not all my fellow Wombats: those wicked slot spirits have also dreamt up an extra piece of gory game play for us:
Before the reels spin, an icon is selected at random to become an expanding symbol. During the spin, if you’ve not generated enough symbols to form a win, the expanding icon will do it for you by moving sideways to trigger an extra payout.
Cheers, Inspired Entertainment! We’re beginning to enjoy this Halloween malarkey ….
Feeling lucky? Well good, because this slot comes with a cool feature that allows you to either double or triple your last win, or grab the chance to win further free spins. Just remember to play wisely – as you could lose all of your hard earned winnings… Bloodcurdling.
Thw Book of Halloween slot offers up a whole load of creepy fun. This wombat loved the expanding icon payouts, and I am certainly not complaining about that x200 multiplier? Give it a go, if you’re brave enough!
