With music from acclaimed doom metal band Candlemass, this House of Doom mobile slot is not for the faint of heart.
Play’n GO worked closely with the iconic doom metal musicians that have been around for 30 years as they dare you to enter the house between heaven and hell.
The thing is, you don’t need to be a metalhead to appreciate this game, just like you don’t need to be a child of the 90s to appreciate their Hugo 2 slot.
Instead, enjoy a devilishly good slot machine that is a little darker than the Guns n Roses game theme, but no less fun, with surprisingly good music (says the non-metal fan).
Welcome to the Hellgate, where one of the five reels will be highlighted and if the wild seer symbols land on it promises an expanding wild.
That, in short, is your main entertainment for the base game, and that’s ok. It’s fun to watch the highlighted reel move around, knowing that a good 4 or 5 of a kind symbol will fill your pockets.
But we will say this: this House of Doom slot is volatile, and it’s not called the ‘House of Doom’ for nothing; coming out alive requires nothing short of a prayer.
Sometimes you play video slots to entertain you for hours, sometimes you just want some quick fast action fun.
This House of Doom game on mobile is definitely the latter, made to be enjoyed as a quick hit – play for too long or too carelessly, and you will end up empty.
So it’s not a perfect game; the click me bonus gives you token wins, and it’s more than a little bit dangerous.
But the good news is that the bonus game free spins come around often, meaning you have a good chance at getting that top prize as you hit multiple expanded wild reels and expanded scatters (triggering more free spins).
We’d probably head here more often than on the Motorhead slot, so that’s saying something.

Wild and the Hellgate: The blind women, or 'seer', is the wild symbol that shows up on any reel.
However, one reel is highlighted as the 'Hellgate' on every spin, and if a wild symbol lands on it, it will expand and cover the whole reel.
Very similar to the feature in the Grim Muerto slot.
Doom spins: Three House of Doom slot logo scatters will trigger 10 free spins.
During the free spin, the Hellgate will show up on at least 2 up to 5 reels, meaning you could potentially get 5 wild reels.
Just as interestingly, if a scatter lands on a Hellgate, it will also expand to cover the reel, and three or more scatters will add one additional free spin per symbol.
Meaning that even though you start with 10 spins, you probably end up playing at least 16, usually more.
Skulls of Abyss Click Me: Three skulls scatter symbols activate the bonus game.
You have three symbols which let you pick again:
If you find the following symbols the feature ends:
You usually end up waking with around 5x your bet.
We weren't convinced we were going to like this House of Doom slot on mobile, but as we generally are with Play'n GO phone games, we were pleasantly surprised.
Sure, fans of the Candlemass band will probably add another star to this review for style, but even non-metal music fans like us could enjoy a dark satanic theme with good atmospheric music.
We will say that this Play'n GO online slot is well titled, don't go in unless you have the balls to lose big or win big, with little room in between.
Big wins are here, but this is a very volatile slot that can be very unforgiving; only hardcore slot fans need apply.
