The Ghostbusters Plus slot game is one of those machines that if you start looking at the game rules a little too closely, you may slowly back away from the sheer amount of information.
We have good and bad news. The good news is that you don’t have to read all the rules.
All you need to know is that Ghostbusters Plus is a 10 level slot online, where you blast ghosts to go up levels, increase the bonus features, the wilds you can get, and the overall RTP of the game.
It has all your favourite characters from the Ghostbusters movie, that song, and looks amazing – it has a cool 80s retro look with brand new graphics and animations that makes you feel like Slimer is coming out of your mobile phone screen.
This is not the first IGT Plus Up slot machine. If you’ve played one, you know what’s coming: ultimately the Return to Player rate of Ghostbuster Plus is low at level 1. A low 93.99% in fact, and we generally never recommend you play on any machine less than 95%.
So to begin with the gameplay doesn’t pay out much. It pays out, and often, but not always enough to cover your starting budget.
The good news is that you get to level 2 very fast (RTP 94.33%) and are soon flying by to Level 4 ( RTP 95.18%) and by Level 10 you get a game with an RTP of 98% – higher than nearly any other machine.
Peter, Ray, Egon and Winston didn’t have it easy, to begin with, and this Ghostbusters Plus slot takes you through every step of their journey, good and bad.
Here’s the thing. We had such fun playing through the first few levels that we didn’t even mind that we weren’t winning much. In fact, with a low minimum bet of 0.25 a spin, this 20 payline slot machine allows you to go through the first levels quickly enough, even on a small budget.
And the reason we didn’t mind is that around every corner laid a new surprise. And sure, you can ignore all those levels and different ghost, because ultimately all you are really looking for is to trigger the Zuul Free Spins Bonus with 3 scatters.
We won over 400 times our bet on level 2 alone – so even if you don’t care about which level you are at, there are big wins here – up to 115,750 times the coin value if you hit a 25x Multiplier Ghost Wilds with a full screen of Red Peter symbols.
There’s more features here than in most video slots online. As long as you are willing to bust some ghosts, and hit those bonus spins, you’ll have fun playing on this Ghostbusters slot game.

Ghost Battle Feature: Each of the 10 levels has a different Ghost symbol, and on anyone level you only ever have one ghost symbol. So in level 1, it's Slimer and on level 9+ it's the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. Because of course, it is.
If this symbol show up on reel 3, it triggers a battle where you'll zap the ghost multiple times. On each zap, it may drop Ghost Wilds into the Ghost Queue, but once dead it will level up your gameplay.
The Ghost Queue: This holds the ghost wilds dropped during a battle. On your next paid spin, the leftmost ghost wild in the queue will randomly drop on the next spin. Subsequent ghosts will then drop on the following spin until there are no more in the queue.
Types of Ghost Wilds: Not all these wilds are available on all levels, but here are the ones you might encounter on your journey. They can all be used to replace other symbols in order to create a win.
Equipment Feature: Again, not all these equipment features are available immediately. On Level 1, for example, you only have the proton pack. They trigger random bonuses.
Royal symbols are J, Q, K or Ace.
Zuul Free Spin Bonus: When you get 3 scatter bonus symbols (the demon dogs) on reels 1, 3 and 5 you'll trigger this bonus. First, you have to tap on the demon dog five times, and he'll reward you with 5 different types of wild symbols.
You then play 5 spins, with each spin getting one of the special wilds. You can retrigger the bonus up to 25 free spins in total. All ghost wilds are unlocked during the bonus, it doesn't matter what level you are at.
You're in it for the long run in this Ghostbuster Plus slot on mobile, and that's ok. Even when you're at level 1, and the lower end of the RTP scale, it's still loads of fun to blast ghosts and get those wilds and free spin features.
It's a little bit of an adventure, or a journey, like in the Harley Davidson Freedom Tour slot, only with fewer paylines and more affordable with a minimum bet of 0.25 a spin.
The good news is that you'll never quite know what's around the corner, with new features and new bonuses opening up with each Ghost you blast back into your proton pack.
On the downside, it can take a while to get there, and not everyone has that kind of budget or patience.
One to come back to once a week to see if you can progress a little further down the line, in between playing on more classic gameplay such as the other Ghostbusters Triple slime slot.
