If you loved the simplicity of the first game, you’ll recognise the quiet charm of this Halloween Fortune 2 mobile slot.
The original Playtech Halloween Fortune slot is one that has resonated with players for many, many years. It made sense that they would launch The Halloween Fortune II slot game, but is it an improvement? The short answer is… not quite.
They’ve kept out three mysterious witches as the mid paying symbols, only now they come stacked two high, covering most of the reels.
The high paying symbols are the familiars; the crow, the cat, the skull. The lowest symbol of all is the crazy magical potions we saw in the first game.
The witchy slot theme may be familiar, but everything else is totally different.
For one, you have 25 paylines instead of 20 and it’s the scatters that trigger free spins. Here the difference is noticeable as instead of getting a random number of spins and multipliers, you get a set 10.
During these 10 free games, the pumpkin wild symbol will sit in the middle of reel 3, remaining in place for the whole time. It’s a nice visual, but it doesn’t seem to bring in that many more wins if we are honest.
Not like the sticky wins in Cazino Cosmos slot, that’s for sure.
Every 2 spins during the Halloween Fortune 2 bonus games will increase the multiplier by +1. You start with a 2x multiplier, so if you do the math, you realise that on the 10th spin you have a 7x multiplier.
You better get one hell of a devilishly good win on that one spin, or the bonus games can leave you feeling a little empty inside.
Which, granted, the original didn’t do much better, but at least you knew if you got a 7x multiplier it was for the whole of the spins.
Fun for a few spins, but probably quickly forgotten for the better, far more fun original.

Wilds: The Pumpkin is wild and substitutes for all symbols except the scatter symbol.
Scatter and Free Games: The Halloween Fortune 2 slot logo is the scatter symbol. Get 3 or more and you'll trigger 10 free games with a beginning 2x multiplier.
After every 2 spins, the multiplier is increased by +1, giving you a max of 7x.
The pumpkin wild also remains sticky on screen for the whole of the Halloween Fortune 2 free spins, and sits in the centre of reel 3.
If we are honest, we would probably still prefer to play on the original game rather than the sequel. Even if the graphics are a little better, the first one is still good enough that the difference is marginal.
This Halloween Fortune 2 video slot suffers from being a sequel in that it will always be compared to the first but is a totally different game. The locked wild during the free spins are fun, but the multipliers never go as high as you can get in the first game.
Still, if this hadn't been a sequel to a much-loved game, would we have rated a little higher? Maybe. It is, after all, a good addition to our list of Playtech slots.
Just... not quite as good.
Halloween Fortune 2 is a sequel to Halloween Fortune, and it's a a 25 payline slot game with Wilds, Scatters, Free Spins, Locked Wild and Multipliers.
