Five Microgaming slots to enjoy this Halloween

It is that time of the year again when ghosts and ghouls will roam the streets, witches will take to the air and you will hear the howl of the werewolf summoning the dead to rise from the grave.

It's Halloween, and of course, it is the perfect time to enjoy some of the top spooky slots available from Microgaming.

We have gone through Microgaming's extensive range of games to bring you a selection that we feel offer you the perfect combination of thrilling slots action, combined with a spooktacular game that you won't want to play with the light off.

So if there's five spine-chilling games that you want to play this Halloween, each one offering something very different from games like Mega Moolah, then these are the games to play.

  1. Immortal Romance
  • Reels - 5
  • Lines - 243 Ways to Win
  • Minimum Bet - 0.30
  • Maximum Bet - 6.00
  • Free Spins - Yes

Perhaps best known for its massive potential jackpot prize of over 3 million coins, the Immortal Romance slot was released at the height of the Twilight Saga boom a few years ago. The slot is based loosely on that series of books and films and it tells of a love story involving Vampires and Werewolves.

The actual game itself is based largely on the same structure and mechanics as the Thunderstruck II slot, and that is no bad thing as that game is one of the best and most popular Microgaming slots ever produced. Consequently, Immortal Romance has also gained a huge following of loyal fans drawn to its supernatural romance theme and massive jackpot prizes.

The highlight of the slot is the incredible bonus round, the Chamber of Spins, which sees you work your way through four different Free Spins bonus games, each with their own special features.

  • Amber Bonus - Amber's bonus game sees you land 10 Free Spins with all wins subject to a 5x multiplier and the possibility of re-triggering the bonus too.
  • Troy Bonus - Troy's bonus sees you also land 10 Free Spins but this time you have a Vampire Bats feature, which will see bats fly across the screen and when they do, they will turn random symbols into random multipliers. You activate this bonus once you have triggered the Chamber of Spins bonus round five times.
  • Michael Bonus - This is a simple 20 Spin bonus game, triggered once you have entered the Chamber of Spins 10 times and you also have Rolling Reels active for the bonus on each of the spins.
  • Sarah Bonus - After the 15th trigger of the Chamber of Spins bonus, the Sarah Bonus becomes active. On this bonus you will receive 25 Free Spins with a Wild Wine bonus. Land this symbol on the centre reel and it will transform random symbols into Wilds. You can also re-trigger this bonus by landing more scatters during the bonus game.

With the Wild Desire feature triggering during the base game, allowing you to turn up to five reels Wild on potentially any spin, it is easy to see why the massive jackpot prizes on offer in the Immortal Romance slot have seen many players select this as one of their most favourite slots.

  1. Red Hot Devil
  • Reels - 5
  • Lines - 25 Pay Lines
  • Minimum Bet - 0.25
  • Maximum Bet - 62.50
  • Free Spins - Yes

This little devil is one hot lady, dressed in a rather revealing outfit that enhances all her considerable assets, this is one devilish lady that will certainly appeal and the 5-reel, 25-line slot also offers you a decent few spins too.

The base game is relatively benign and the game is a medium variance offering, although some bigger value wins are available if you get lucky. The best value wins tend to come in the Free Spins bonus, which is activated when you land three or more Scatter symbols on the reels.

When you do, you can select from two Free Spins options. One is ten Free Spins with multiplier trail up to 10x, the other is 10 Free Spins with Red Hot Wild Reels or you can select the Wheel of Fire bonus game.

In the Free Spins Multiplier Trail bonus, a scatter landing on the first and fifth reels can increase the size of your multiplier on your wins. On the Red Hot Wild Reels bonus, you will see any of the middle three reels turn completely Wild, furthermore, if you land a Scatter on the first or fifth reels, these will also turn Wild too. Land two Scatters on both the first and fifth reels and you get a Free Re-spin with both these Reels turned wild.

The Wheel of Fire game is a simple selection game where you can win cash prizes by selecting different options until you select the jester which ends the game.

  1. Halloweenies
  • Reels - 5
  • Lines - 20 Pay Lines
  • Minimum Bet - 0.01
  • Maximum Bet - 50.00
  • Free Spins - Yes

Trick or Treat? That's the choice you have available to you in this funky, colourful and cheerful cartoon-styled Halloween-themed slot. This medium variance game offers players the chance to play from just 0.01 per spin, up to a maximum of 50.00 per spin, making it suitable for all bankroll sizes and with its cast of crazy characters on the reels, this is a Halloween slot that will bring a smile to your face.

Land three of the bunny Scatter symbols and you will trigger 13 Free Spins with a 3x multiplier applied to all wins during the feature. Land three bunny Scatters once again during this bonus and you will get another 13 Free Spins to play through.

However, this is not the only Halloween feature in the game. Land three of more of the Pumpkin Bonus symbol and you will launch the Pumpkin Bonus feature. Select from the Jack-O-Lanterns distributed around the cemetery to reveal cash prizes or until you select the symbol that ends the game.

With a spooky soundtrack and genuinely enjoyable game play, plus two bonus rounds, this is a Halloween slot that is good to play at any time of the year.

  1. Lost Vegas
  • Reels - 5
  • Lines - 243 Ways to Win
  • Minimum Bet - 0.30
  • Maximum Bet - 45.00
  • Free Spins - Yes

Perhaps play as either the survivors or the zombies in this brilliant slot from Microgaming that was first released back in October 2016. Each game mode has its own bonuses and symbols on the reel so in effect, you have two very similar slots to play here in one.

Set in a post-apocalyptic Las Vegas, where Zombies roam the streets following the release of a virus, this is a beautifully designed game which is stunning visually and also features a fantastic accompanying soundtrack.

Playing as a survivor, you will have the Free Spins with Stash Feature available to you. In this bonus, any playing card symbol landed on the reels will be removed and the prize landed for it added to the stash. After these symbols are stashed any remaining winning lines will pay once again. Remove the Ace, King, Queen, Jack and 10 from the reels and the Free Spins bonus will end.

Alternatively, if you select to play as a Zombie you will receive the Infection bonus in your Free Spins game. This bonus sees full stacks of Zombies infect the reels and if a Wild symbol lands on an infected reel, it will become a stack Wild. You continue to play through your Free Spins until all the reels are infected.

Depending on whether you play as a Zombie or survivor, you can also trigger the Zombie Fist of Cash bonus or the Blackout bonus. Both of which award a cash prize and which can be triggered at random in the base game.

This is a clever and beautifully realised slot that has masses going for it and it one that you should definitely try this Halloween.

  1. Halloween
  • Reels - 5
  • Lines - 50 Pay Lines
  • Minimum Bet - 0.50
  • Maximum Bet - 200
  • Free Spins - Yes

Based on the classic 1978 horror film by John Carpenter featuring Jamie Lee Curtis in her first ever film role, Halloween is one of the classic horrors of the 70s and 80s and after many years, Microgaming released their slot based on the iconic film.

If you enjoy your Halloween with a few more scares and frights, then this is the slot to play. With an unsettling soundtrack and the ever-pervading presence of villain Michael Myers always tangible, this is a slot that has an eerie atmosphere.

The main feature of the slot is the Wandering Reel feature. This is a group of three reels that spin together, and which can move across the three reels. They can also land Jumbo Blocks, which are 3x3 blocks containing one of the symbols in the game and which can lead to some of the biggest wins available on the slot.

Land three or more of the Scatters and you will trigger the Trick or Treat Wheel, where you spin the wheel to cash prizes of up to 10x your stake. Keep spinning the wheel and collecting prizes until you trigger the Boogeyman Bonus or the Free Spins feature.

The Boogeyman Bonus is a simple selection games where you can win cash prizes and multipliers and it is possible to pick all the cash prizes to land a 20x multiplier if you are fortunate enough.

The Free Spins feature gives you 9 Free Spins with the triggering character for the Free Spins featuring predominantly on the reels including the Jumbo Block, to give you a better chance of a sizeable win.

For fans of slasher films, Halloween is the perfect slot to try at any time of the year, but it is particularly pertinent when the ghosts and ghouls start to roam the streets.
