What’s better than watching a scary movie on Halloween? I’ll tell you what’s better – playing a scary slot game! The horror theme is one of the most popular in the slot world and has been the inspiration for many classic online casino titles. These 5 games are the perfect way to see in All Hallows’ Eve.
A Nightmare on Elm Street
Freddy Krueger is one of the scariest horror characters in movie history, and this slot is based around the 2010 reboot. While that version may have bombed at the box office, this Random Logic title certainly has a cutting edge. The graphics and soundtrack are truly eerie and are perfect for playing on a cold, dark Halloween night. Unlike in the movie, Freddy’s appearances in the game are to be welcomed, since he is both the Wild and Expanding Wild symbol. Line up 5 of his symbols in a row, and the laughing madman will bank you 10,000x your bet. This slot also comes with both major and minor progressive jackpots, and the Nightmare on Elm Street jackpot tends to pay out a five-figure sum every few months. If you can avoid filling your pants, this slot has the potential to fill your bank account this Halloween, and we highly recommend it.
The theme of iSoftBet’s Ghosts n Gold is haunted houses and the creepy ghouls which inhabit it. Fortunately for you, the ghosts in this game will be going all out to win you as much gold as possible. In fact, many of the bigger wins are found in the base game, as wild ghosts will randomly fly across the reels, turning symbols into extra wilds. These wilds can even appear during the free spins bonus game, leading to increased wins. With 3888 different ways to win, the medium variance Ghosts n Gold is a fun and potentially lucrative way to see in the witching hour.
If you prefer Halloween to be magical rather than terrifying, then perhaps NetEnt’s Witchcraft Academy is the slot for you. Clearly inspired by the Hogwarts school from the Harry Potter series, Witchcraft Academy is beautifully drawn, with the reels set against a backdrop of a magician’s library. The symbols include the owl and gemstones as well as a young wizard and young witch. Witchcraft Academy comes with an Elements Bonus round which gives you the chance to win cash rewards and payout multipliers, while there is also a base jackpot offering up to 8000 times your line bet. This is one beautiful slot game that can be played anytime you are in the mood for some slot magic.
Blood Suckers 2
NetEnt’s sequel to Blood Suckers scared the hell out of slot players when it came out in 2017, and it still manages to put a chill down my spine. The backstory of the main character Amelia is one that makes players root for the young vampire throughout the game. The crossbow-wielding vampiress explores her ancestors’ castle on a quest for riches, blasting open bonuses and features as she goes. The main bonus game is where Amelia really shines, as she uncovers hidden treasure from coffins in the crypt. Bloodsuckers 2 is both low variance and has a high RTP of 96.94%, making it perfect for a night of steady wins.
NetEnt is responsible for a third spooky slot on our Halloween list, with the magical Golden Grimoire game. A Grimoire was the medieval name for a book of spells. Spells for love, spells for health, and spells for riches. You probably won’t get rich playing the Golden Grimoire slot, but the maximum 200x your stake on any spin means you can have a fun evening trying to get moderately wealthy. There’s a free spins round here too, and the Sticky Mystery Symbol feature can combine with these free spins to significantly boost the payout potential. As is usually the case with NetEnt titles, the game is beautiful to look at, while the spellbinding piano music keeps you nicely on edge.
Which of these slot games will you play this Halloween? The good news is that all of them can be easily accessed on your mobile phone or tablet, allowing you to play even while hiding under the covers.
