House of Doom slot is a Horror themed game from Play ‘N Go that’s trying to offer something a bit different. Many slots these days focus on nice bright colours and friendly characters like Hugo Goal slot so as to appeal to a wide audience. But for many players, this can get a bit boring and sometimes seems a bit child-like. By trying something new here with House of Doom slot, Play ‘N Go should hopefully attract a more select but dedicated group of players who appreciate the dark, spooky theme for being more original and possibly to their taste.
Speaking of the design of the game, the graphics are pretty good with the reels set upon a house of skulls, and the detail in the symbols is also impressive. It’s a fairly simple design but it definitely works, and as I’ll discuss later there is also a great design with some of the bonuses that take you to a different location. The music and sound effects are also extremely effective here, with an eerie background noise and a ringing of church bells that make you feel like your watching The Omen. Moving on to how the game actually works, we have here a 5×3 set of reels with just 10 pay lines and an RTP of 96.1%. You can play from just 10p a spin, all the way up to £100 which is significantly less than a lot of games nowadays but should be sufficient for most players. The aim of the game is simple, to get a winning combination using the base symbols from left to right to win either money or a bonus. These base symbols are listed as follows, ranked in ascending order based on their value:
- 10 and Jack (lowest value)
- Queen, King and Ace
- Demon (highest value)
The Demon also serves as a Wild symbol, meaning she will substitute for all other base symbols in a winning combination as well as being the most valuable symbol on her own.
House of Doom Slot Bonuses and Features
Hellgate. On every spin, one reel is randomly selected and highlighted. Any Wild symbols that appear on this reel will then expand, replacing all other symbols on the reel. During Doom Spins (see below), between 2 and 5 reels are highlighted, and both Wild and Wild House of Doom Scatter symbols expand on the highlighted reel.
Doom Spins. This is triggered by 3 House of Doom symbols on the reels which then offers 10 free spins. During these Doom Spins, the House of Doom Scatter symbol becomes Wild and substitutes for all symbols in a winning combination, also being as equally valuable as the Demon symbol if forming a winning combination on its own. If 3 or more House of Doom symbols appear at any point, you will be awarded an additional free spin per symbol.
Skulls of Abyss. If 3 Skull Scatter symbols appear at any point then the Skulls of Abyss Bonus is activated. You are taken to a different screen where 15 skulls appear, from which you must choose one to reveal a hidden prize. You can choose from Cash prizes which, for multipliers 1x, 2x and 3x will let you pick again, or 5x and 20x which will end the bonus. You can also pick a Doom Spin feature which also ends the bonus.
All in all, House of Doom slot is dark, very well designed slot that offers something different for those who don’t really enjoy or are getting fed up with the colourful, sometimes childish themes that other slots tend to go with. Everything from the colours and symbols to the music creates an eerie setting with even the bonuses being pretty creepy. Speaking of the bonuses, House of Doom slots main attraction is the Doom Spins as they offer up to 5 reels turning Wild, giving you a chance to win a whopping 2,500x your stake for some serious money. Don’t expect this to turn up too often mind, this is a high variance slot so may not appeal to everyone but if you are looking for a chance to win big, this slot has one of the highest payouts through a bonus we’ve seen recently.
