Draw the curtains and lock the doors. Then check the window latches. Block the cat flap and turn on all the lights. Spooktacular winnings have descended upon your living room, and there’s no need to venture outside where fortunes are merely ghosts. It’s time to nestle down for a few rounds of Book of Halloween slot, a new title from Inspired Gaming that has the thrills to make you jump, in more ways than one. With a free spins feature plus the ability to double your winnings, this could be the pumpkin you’ve been looking for this Halloween.
While the premise has been set to carry a spooky theme, it’s all really quite light-hearted. There’s a kooky character that serves as the star – a man with a pumpkin for a head. There’s also spell books and pots of potion, as well as a few other scary objects. The reels lie on a fairly sinister background of dark hills, with a haunted house built upon a hill in the distance. The graphics aren’t quite on the level of some mind-blowing games we’ve reviewed lately, but they are quite engaging and entertaining. The pay table is made up of 5 reels and 10 paylines, which you’ll find quite traditional. No thousand odd ways to win.
Inspired Gaming, the iGaming studio behind Book of Halloween, has made the highest possible payout £250,000.00. This could be considered average, but there’s nothing average about actually winning an amount of cash that big. In order to claim that amount as your own you’ll need to wager the maximum bet of £50.00 per spin, which isn’t the biggest max bet we’ve ever seen. The minimum bet is a lowly £0.10 per spin, but betting at this amount won’t win you huge jackpots. Feel free to play on your mobile or tablet, too, as you might need to take the game with you on your daily commutes.
The symbol selection that Inspired Gaming has put together is quite simple, with 9 regular icons that can align to award creepy payouts. The symbols begin in value with playing cards 10, J, Q, K and A. The most you can win off aligning 5 aces is £750.00. The icons then rise in value with symbols more synonymous with a theme of this nature. There’s a horrible hand, a tombstone, a cauldron of green potion and the pumpkin man’s pumpkin head. Landing 5 pumpkin head symbols can land you £25,000.00.
Look out for the red spell book, as this is a symbol that will treat you to a very welcomed cash boost.
The headline bonus feature that Inspired Gaming has given us is a free spins feature. In order to trigger it you’ll need to land 3 or more of those red spell books on the reels, in any position. As soon as this happens you’ll be awarded with 10 free spins. It isn’t the most interactive bonus feature in slots, but the gaming studio has added an expanding symbol feature that plays through the free spins. The expanding symbol chosen is completely random, but with any luck it’ll be Mr. Pumpkin Head.
There’s also a gamble feature, which everyone can activate or deactivate. Should it be turned on you’ll be able to gamble any win generated. There are 2 wheels shown to you in this feature, one that you touch to increase the winning amount of your payout and one that can award you free spins.
Playing Book of Halloween slot might not be quite on the level as various ground breaking titles we’ve played so far this year, but it’s a good game for players spinning on a conservative budget, or perhaps new to the online slots scene. This is because it’s quite easy to play, and the max bet is by no means exorbitant. The maximum payout is also solid for that size maximum bet. No need to go out trick-or-treating this year, all the goods you could ever need are right here on your preferred device.
