Based on the original 1978 by John Carpenter, this Microgaming Halloween mobile slot brings back all the nostalgia, and all the terror.
We are not big Horror movie fans. There’s a reason we got excited for the Justice League DC Comics slot based on the New52 books – inside we’re really more infants than grown ups.
So we are not this Halloween slots target audience, and yet still managed to find it wonderfully tense and entertaining.
This 50 payline Halloween slot has 5 reels, but three of them move from one side to the screen, to the other, randomly.
Those set of 3’s stand one symbol taller, so they turn the reels into 4 rows high instead of 3, and initially we thought they were just a gimmick.
But the way they are presented makes it very fun, at least visually, because those 3 reels can hold mega symbols of any of the main characters – or the high paying symbols.
Add that feels like you are literally standing in the front porch of a house, spinning symbols relevant to Halloween movie, and you can’t help but be drawn in.
This is a medium to high variance slot machine, so whilst the wins come often enough, big wins are reserved for the free spin bonus where you get more character mega symbols.
But it’s how the original movie score is weaved beautifully into this Halloween video slot, making every spin spine chillingly wonderful as you wonder when the boogeyman is going to get you.
In terms of real chills, this Halloween slot machine brings exactly that, both in terms of potential wins, and gameplay.
There was part of us that almost dreaded the click me bonus as you slooooowly go down the stairs hoping to avoid Michael Myers – and when he finally gets you, there’s definitely a couple of jumps.
It’s not a great Android or iPhone slot for beginners as it’s a little unusual, and it can be a little slow at mobile casinos.
But definitely worth checking out if you love a good Horror slot machine.

Wilds: The Halloween slot logo, the pumpkin and knife, is the wild symbol and replaces all other symbols on the reels.
Wandering Reels and Mega Symbols: You get 3 reels that stand 4 rows high and move around on every spin.
It means that you can get 4 rows high on reels 1, 2 and 3, or reels 2, 3 and 4, or reels 2, 4, or 5.
It doesn't affect your paylines, but can affect your wins, seeing as these wandering reels hold mega symbols.
These are the character symbols and they now come stacked, in blocks of 3 reels and 4 rows high.
If you land one fully on the screen, which happens more often than you'd think, you can easily get around 20x to 50x your bet, even if you just get that symbol.
Trick or Treat Wheel Bonus: Get 3 Bonus wheel symbols anywhere on screen and you trigger a wheel of fortune bonus.
You then get to spin a wheel of fortune where you can either get cash prizes, trigger 9 free spins by landing on one of the characters or trigger the boogeyman bonus.
Micrograming casino game studios does it again, showing that when they are given a big brand name, they can make big brand fun.
From a chilly atmosphere set on a beautifully authentic background, this manages to bring real horror chills in the way that games like the Psycho slot never could.
And considering we are not big fans of the original film, it surprises us that even we grew a little nostalgic whilst playing the mobile Halloween slot as it's now such an iconic part of the Halloween festivities.
Add that you've got some wonderfully unique wondering reels and mega symbols, and this is perfect for slot players look to move their real money slot play to the next level.
