There's no tricks here and you are certainly in for a treat when you load up the Halloweenies slot on your smartphone or tablet.
Based on the famous date in the calendar when ghosts, ghouls and all things foul are purported to rise, rather than terrifying, you'll be somewhat surprised and entertained by the motley collection of skeletons, zombies and witches who are hell-bent on securing themselves some sweetie sized treats.
It's fair to say that while the theme of the slot may be Halloween, the focus is less on the 'trick' and more on the 'treat' side of the bargain. Along with the motley collection of ghosts and ghouls, there's a rather odd looking rabbit and a pumpkin also on the reels. However, that is where the fiendishness on the reels ends as the rest of the symbols are a collection of yummy sweeties. Ripe for collection for hungry trick-or-treaters.
At its most basic, Halloweenies is a 20 payline slot, which has the usual 5x3 set up on the reels. You can select how many paylines you want in play on each spin and as a result, with coins ranging from 0.01 up to 0.50, you can bet from 0.01 up to 50.00 on every spin.
What is great about Halloweenies from a playing point of view is that it is a slot that rewards players regularly, paying out on just over half of its spins during tests. This means that even if you start with a relatively small amount of cash, you can still play the slot for a while and access many of its features as your balance is topped up regularly with small and medium sized wins.
Indeed, with a house edge of around 4%, this is a low volatility slot that offers players a great chance of success and with a potential jackpot of 97,500 coins, it is a slot that offers you the chance of a super-sized win.
The graphics are bright and colourful and while the sound effects are sparse, when they do kick in on a winning payline, they are an array of strange and unusual noises, from a cackling witch, to a groaning zombie.
While the base game is enjoyable enough and keeps you spinning the reels thanks to the regular wins, there are three other features of the Halloweenies slot that will also appeal greatly to slot fans.
The first is the in game Wild symbol which is what can only be described as a congealed ball of monster-themed candy sweets. The in game Wild when landed on a payline can substitute any of the symbols in the game (bar the two outlined below) to create a winning payline. Multiple wilds across the reels of course give you a greater chance of success.
The second symbol to take note of is the in game scatter symbol. This symbol is arguably the oddest looking bunny rabbit you will ever see in a slot game. With its two front teeth, heart shaped nose and wild staring eyes, it looks like this bunny has been chewing something more potent than a few carrots. Land three, four or five of these bunny symbols across the reels and you trigger the free spin round.
During free spins you receive 13 free spins of the reels and every time you land a winning payline in this section, your win is automatically trebled. That is not all though as if you can land an another three or more scatters across the reels in free spins, then you'll win another 13 free spins.
The third bonus is the Pick a Pumpkin bonus and this is triggered when you land 3, 4 or 5 carved pumpkins across the reels. Depending on how many pumpkins you land across the reels, you get to pick the same number of pumpkins from 13 objects and can pay out between 10 times and 20 times your original bet.
The Halloweenies slot is great fun and enjoyable to play also via mobile or tablet!
