Fun, bright and colourful, this Halloweenies slot with its low variance wins will keep you up all night.
To be honest, when we first Halloweenies land on our mobile screen, we were not particularly enthused. It felt that this was Microgaming’s ways of getting an old Halloween slot out on the mobile platform, ready for old hallow’s eve.
Boy were we wrong. We had an awesome time playing on this bright 20 payline, 5 reel video slot.
The theme is a surprising mix of cute and bubbly, with sweeties and candies littering the reels, peppered amongst witches, zombies and a Frankenstein.
True these are reminiscent of Saturday morning TV shows rather than late night horror movies, but hey, we were never massive fans of what lies under the bed. And, if we do want a few scares, stare in the eyes of the pink scatter bunny. Those are the eyes hiding a tiny cute little crazed psychopath. Happily and surprisingly as well, the cackle of witches every time you win didn’t get as annoying as we thought it would when we first heard it.
And if you do find it annoying, then I advise you play Halloweenies slot on mute as the wins and hits come fast with it having a low variance. It hits about 53% of the time, meaning you’ll get constant wins to top up your balance, even if the wins are not very big. And with a decent payout rate of 95-96%, we found ourselves betting more and more and playing far longer than we expected.
And thing is… this is not a radical mobile slot, it has a great free spins feature (which is ridiculously easy to re-trigger we found) and a simple pick me bonus that pays about 20 to 30 times your bet only. But it ticks all the boxes of what a low volatility slot should be like: entertaining, full of action, fun and easy on the wallet.

Wild: Not sure what these are supposed to be, but we can only describe the Wild symbol look as 'creepy monster candy'. It replaces all symbols except the scatter and bonus symbol.
Pick a Pumpkin: Get at least 3, 4 or 5 pumpkins on the reels and you'll get to pick the same amount of pumpkins on a bonus screen from 13 objects. Hits far more frequently than the free spins features and pays a decent 10x to 20x your bet, which is about the same as the free spins. So we were happy, even if the graphics were a little unimaginative.
Scatter and Free Spins: The afore mentioned psycho bunny is the scatter symbol, and if you get three or more on the screen you'll get 13 free spins. This may not sound like a lot, but bear in mind that all wins are tripled and, by our estimate we manage to re-trigger this bonus at least 50% of the time, so we actually got a total of 26 free symbols many times. You can also get the bonus feature during the free spins, which makes a significant difference to your balance.
Halloweenies mobile slot will certainly not get you the big wins that will change your life forever - even if the software providers say that you theoretically can win as much as 32,500 in cash in the base game and a whopping 97,500 during the free spins.
But generally speaking, don't play this game for those big wins. As standard you'll be happy if your bets are covered until that free spins round comes and you hit the wins with 3x multipliers. If you are smart and play well, you'll walk out of this slot with at least as much as you walked in and maybe a little more on top.
One of the top low volatility Microgaming slots.
