Where to play?
If you’re up for some scary fun Play N’ Go’s Happy Halloween video slots will give you goosebumps. The theme of the game celebrates Halloween on the 31st of October. It features 50 payline, 5 reels, scatters, a free spins mode (awards 20 free spins) and a stacked wild (orange pumpkin) that substitutes all the other symbols on the reels to form a winning combination except the scatter. The wild is the icon that’s responsible for all the action during the base game.

On the reels you’ll find a myriad of colourful symbols like orange cupcakes, ghostly jellies, Frankenstein, a beautiful witch (scatter), strawberries covered in chocolate, mummies, ghouls and an orange pumpkin (wild). The characters are well-rounded and will ply you with all manner of tricks or treats. The game pays out a top non-progressive jackpot cash prize of 1000,000 coins or 5,000x your stake.
Yes I know it’s a hefty sum but don’t let the exterior facade of this slots deceive you-it can be a bit of a money chewer since base game wins are nothing to write home about. With an average return to player (RTP) percentage of 96.5% it’s worth a couple of spins especially if you’re lucky enough to trigger the exquisite free spins mode. This is a high-volatility slots that doesn’t take kindly to low-budget players, that said this game is all about the free spins feature. The symbol that offers the biggest win is the ghost carrying the lantern, 5 of them at the maximum wager pays you 1,000 coins.
Before you start trick or treating let’s have a look at the coin value first. It starts with 0.01 up to 0.10. The smallest wager you can make is £0.50 up to £25 (250 coins) per spin. What I’ve noted about the game, when I increased the number of coins per spin, I had a few neat wins of 10x my stake but hey that’s just me. If you’re busy with something else an Auto Play feature spins the reels automatically for you up to 50 times.
Jack the Wild o’ Lantern pays out the biggest wins during the base game when 2 of them appear stacked on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5.
Free Spins And Scatter
Without further ado this is the business end of the slots since it pays out the biggest cash prizes. The belle of the ball here is the hot looking redhead witch, by the way she’s also the scatter symbol. Three flame-haired beauties trigger the free spins feature when they pitch on reels 1, 2 and 3.
This is not all…3 scatters pays you 4x your stake. For three scatter icons you’ll receive 10 free spins, the free spins mode can be re-triggered awarding you another 10 making it 20 free spins in total. During the free spins 2 or more wild pumpkins boost payline wins when they appear on reels 2 to 5. If they appear stacked on the reels along with the existing wilds you’ll receive a huge payout. The biggest win I had during the free spins was 20x my stake instead of 5,000x times.
One symbol in particular that weaves itself like a golden thread throughout the base game and free spins mode is the lantern-wielding ghost. If it appears 4 symbols stacked high during the free spins (3 or 5 ghosts) you’ll be counting greenbacks like a Sultan.
Happy Halloween is not the type of slots newbies might cut their teeth on but lady luck is very fickle. Caution is advised though since it is a high variance slots that will leave you high and dry in no time. That said, it’s a high rollers dream game along with a high RTP that offers some spectacular wins during the free spins. Start off small and gradually increase your bets as the free spins round nears-the free spins is triggered around 80 spins, it might be more or even less.
