Fake blood, candy induced sugar rushes and disguising ourselves as frightening creatures are just 3 of the things we associate with Halloween. So with the scariest night of the year just around the corner we thought it only fitting to give you a gruesome rundown of our Top 5 online slots that all feature a Halloween theme!
#5. Lucky Witch
To get the skull rolling (see what we did there?), at number 5 we find the Lucky Witch online slot by the cool kids at Microgaming. It’s played across 5 reels with 15 pay lines and there’s a sweet $12,000 jackpot to be won if you’re brave enough to face off against the witch, who we might add is portrayed as a smoking hot milfy enchantress compared to the ugly, cranky old spell casters most of us are used to. All the symbols have a traditional witchy feel about them, from black cats to bubbling cauldrons and the sound FX and in game music conjure up the feelings of a magical and mysterious adventure. Incidentally, landing a bubbling cauldron symbol on reels 1, 3 and 5 will start one of four possible bonus games which all have the potential to see you win large sums of cash and this is a great classic slot title to kick off your Halloween gaming session!
#4. A Nightmare on Elm Street
“1-2 Freddie’s coming for you…” Remember that terrifying song? Growing up as a kid in the 80’s, there was nothing scarier than Freddy Kruger. He could find you even when you were sleeping and, like Justin Bieber’s music career, there’s nothing you could do to stop the blood curdling horror coming back to haunt you time after time. He was resurrected in 2012 for a new outing by 888 Holdings in a special online slot game based on the famous scary movie. It features 5 reels and 30 pay lines, some brilliantly gory hack and slash special features plus 2 separate progressive jackpots for you to win if you can stay awake long enough. This a great horror title and one that will have you spinning the reels for hours. Whatever it is you do, just remember… DON’T… FALL… ASLEEP…
#3. The Mummy
In at number 3 is the first born from another movie franchise that also spawned its fair share of sequels, pretty much the standard these days with big buck Hollywood blockbusters. While we all might hate the cardboard cut-out that is Brendan Fraser (yawn), Rachel Weisz’ super sexy portrayal of heroin Evy Carnahan more than made up for director Stephen Sommers heinous crimes against movie lovers. Yet thankfully, unlike Sommers choice of actors, software gurus Playtech always seem to hit the nail on the head when it comes to awesome online slot games. The Mummy features 5 reels, 25 pay lines and no less than 8 separate bonus rounds for you to enjoy. If all this wasn’t enough it also features Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson. Enough said.
#2. Happy Halloween
Software developers Play’n GO might be one of the new kids on the block when it comes to online casino games, however one of their most recent online slots sees them “Hangin’ Tough” at position 2 in our top 5 and for good reason. Happy Halloween is a 5-reel online slot with 50 pay lines and the chance to win a million credits. It boasts HD graphics and sound plus an interesting bonus mini feature that’s allows you to wager your winnings in a further game of chance. Billed as a slot that’s designed to both “bewitch and delight players” Happy Halloween will satisfy the bloodlust and jackpot frenzy of even the most hard-core serial slotters. If you like your Halloween to be spooky with just the right amount of awesome cheesy horror, check out Happy Halloween and prepare for a truly spine chilling slot experience!
Halloween just wouldn’t be the same without Vampires. Ever since Bram Stoker penned his 1897 gothic horror classic Dracula, the world has been fascinated with blood sucking coffin dwellers with dodgy European accents. Dracula was immortalized by on screen legends such as Bela Lugosi, Christopher Lee and Gary Oldman, so in keeping with that Hollywood vibe, software giants NetEnt licensed the Dracula franchise as part of their deal with Universal Pictures and produced an online slot game based around the toothy Transylvanian tyrant. Featuring 5 reels and 40 pay lines, Dracula is a stunning online slot. The graphics, animations and sound FX are second to none and all contribute to the macabre feeling you get while playing the game. It features bonuses you come to expect like stacked wilds, free spins and regular wilds but adds an interesting bonus called the Bat feature, in which bats will fly and land on the reels in a cluster to form new symbols. It’s a fiendishly blood curdling slot, and one that’s truly deserving of the number 1 spot on our Halloween slot list.
So which of these would you have gone with in your own Top 5? With so many horror and Halloween themed slots available, it was a tough choice whittling down our list to just 5 awesome titles.
