Halloween is an annual holiday celebrated on the night of 31 of October to the 1st of November. Originally from Ireland, it is mainly celebrated in Anglo-Saxon countries (Canada, Australia, United States and United Kingdom). Children are usually dressed in scary costumes. The children go door to door trick –or-treating. Microgaming has designed a slot game based on this popular holiday called Halloweenies. It has all the features to please Halloween fans. It has the traditional Halloween symbols such as: pumpkin, sweets and scary monster costumes (witches, Frankenstein, werewolf and skeletons). The graphics are average but still rather entertaining with a pleasant comic style. The soundtrack is good, wind, bird noises and a door slamming, all the qualities to give you goose bumps and shivers down your spine. When you obtain a wining combination, a short macabre music is played which suits the theme.
Halloweenies video slot has 5 reels and 20 paylines. It has a wild and a scatter. During the round you can win free spins and also a bonus game called pumpkin field. You can bet 1 to 5 coins per line. The denominations start from 0.01 to 0.50$/£/€. The jackpot can amount to 13000 coins. The variance of the game is average. As usual the combinations are read from left to right. Only the highest on the same activated line is paid. The other combinations are added together.
The wild symbol is represented with 4 sweets and the shapes form the letters W, L, I and D. it can replace all the other symbols except the scatter and pumpkin to form wining combinations. In this case it is animated. The sweets change into letters which eventually form the word WILD. If you obtain 2, 3, 4 or 5 jokers on the same enabled line, you win 13, 130, 1300 or 13000 coins. Here is another reason for you to love sweets. Dentists would not approve of this.
The scatter symbol is represented by a head of a cute pink bunny. However, beware of appearances. It is actually a monster. It reveals its true face in a short pleasant animation it is launched when you win thanks to the scatter. If you obtain 3, 4 or 5 anywhere regardless of their position on the reels, you win 5, 10 or 100 coins. In addition you win 13 free rounds.
