Helloween - Bonus features

There are 7 different wild symbols that feature in this slot, each one comes in the form of a pumpkin, with the classic wild styled as a jack o'lantern. There are 7 different free spin bonus games to go with the 7 wilds. Land scatters on reels 1, 3 and 5 and you'll unlock the Keeper of the Seven Keys Feature Wheel that decides your fate.

The wheel will spin and land on one of the 7 free spin games, each of the games offers players 5 free spins other than Helloween Free Spins which offers 7... The free spin rounds (all themed around Helloween songs) are as follows: 

  • I'm Alive - This free spins round sees sticky wilds land on the reel and expand until they fill the entire reel.  
  • Future Wild - Wilds land on the reels they expand to fill an entire reel.
  • Eagle Fly Free - Wilds float around the reels and create winning combinations at random. An additional wild is added on each and every free spin. Inbetween each spin the wild changes position.
  • Dr Stein - One low paying symbol is selected randomly and all of the matching symbols are turned into wilds.
  • March of Time - Any wilds that land on the reels during the free spins become sticky and make their way across the reels from right to left.
  • I Want Out - Every time a wild lands they swallow the symbols around them causing them to become a 2x2 sized wild. 
  • Helloween Free Spins - 7 free spins, every time 3 scatter symbols are collected during this round the feature wheel restarts kickstarting new bonus mechanics.

At the end of every feature a multiplier may be added to the total win achieved in the bonus round... The multiplier can be 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x or 10x.

As has come to be expected from one of these slots, Helloween features some of the band's most iconic tracks from two of their most ground-breaking albums Keeper of the Seven Keys: Part I and Keeper of the Seven Keys: Part II. 

'A brilliant Halloween slot that everyone can enjoy' states Play'n GO Chief

Play'n GO's Chief Product Officer Martin Zettergren spoke about the release of this new slot, and the companies approach towards creating slots geared towards the holidays, he said: “Last year we didn’t feel we had an idea for a Halloween game that could bring something new to the industry, this year we do. 

"We don’t need the gimmick of a holiday to push our slots; they stand on their own two feet. For Helloween, the design, the features, and the music all come together to create a brilliant Halloween slot that everyone can enjoy.”
