Read our favourite Undead slot review & find out where to play
Theses Undead slot machines will rise again and again every Halloween to give you the heeby-jeebies, but which one will pay out the most and which are the best? Here’s our full list below.
Full disclosure: you will not find a single Vampire slot or Werewolf game in the list of games below. We’ve got specific categories for those because they are popular enough to deserve them.
Instead what we are looking for here are slots with ghosts, wraiths, revenants, zombies, re-animated corpses and whatever else you want to call those that died but came back again to the land of the living.
And whilst many will save these to play during Halloween, we think that these wonderful supernatural slot games can be enjoyed any day of the year… especially when it’s late at night and you need a thrilling chill.
That said, very few of these are actually that scary. If we are honest, slot game providers prefer to keep things light and fun simply because it means they will find a wider audience.
We take a look at the best of the best within the different categories of the Undead mobile slot genre.
When you think ‘undead’ what’s the first thought that pops to mind? Zombies, of course.
So much so, in fact, that they’ve lost some of their horror appeal and now the whole family can probably find a game or TV show they can all enjoy together as these ghouls come for your brains.
Don’t believe us? Watch Hotel Transylvania one of these days, or maybe the Plants Vs Zombies app.
The point is, Zombies are probably the scariest and worst horror villain the history of monster stories, mostly because they usually are slow and brainless, but there’s just so many of them.
Plus being eaten alive has got to give you a few horror points for pure gruesomeness and fear factor.
By our standard, the Zombie has to be the star of the show. So if it’s just part of a monster mash-up, we don’t think it deserves its name as a full Zombie game.
It also has to have fun mechanics, because the theme is only part of the appeal of a slot machine. How it plays and how much you can win is the number one priority.
Based on these assumptions, we can safely say that our top choices are:
Another one to check out is the Golden Colt, although it couldn’t make it on the list because whilst it has a Zombie Sheriff, it’s more a spooky western slot than a proper Undead mobile game.
We hope the Mexicans will forgive us for putting one of their best holidays in our Undead section, but you have to admit… it fits.
Celebrating our ancestors, giving them one special day when they can walk the earth to see us again, the masks, the colours, the skeletons…
It all makes for a fantastic theme and you’ll usually find more skeleton slots around this theme than any other. After all, this is a day celebrating the dead. They may not come back to life (per say), but in these games, and in the legends, they kinda do.
There’s a reason why there are so many Day of the Dead slot games. The music gives the game a festive air that automatically makes you smile, and the colours lend themselves well to be played on at online mobile casinos where screen size is limited.
Anything that helps differentiate between the symbols is a good thing for slot gamblers. Because, let’s be honest, with horror slots you usually end up with lots of greys, blacks and reds.
Well, definitely not in this category.
It helps that El Dia De Muertos is usually celebrated close to Halloween – moving from the 31st of October to the 1st or 2nd of November.
So of course, these games usually fall within the category of spooky slot machines, but in honesty, they (at best) second cousins twice removed. One is dark and full of fantastical creatures, the other is beautiful and full of reverence to the past.
In keeping with the holiday itself, most of these casino games will bring you joy and smiles far more than bumps and chills.
But, if there’s no actual skeleton or dead person on the reels, then it doesn’t qualify. So here the ones we think that stand our from the pack:
Microgaming studios have also created the fun Beautiful Bones slot that truly celebrates all that the Day of the Dead is all about, but it’s far truer to the celebration and has a lot less skeletons.
So in short, it didn’t quite make the cut.
If Zombies are by far the most popular of the Undead themed phone slots, the ghosts, poltergeist and wraiths have to be the next most common theme.
The problem is that most of these revenants don’t tend to be the star of their own show, but generally in the mix of other Monster slot games.
In fact, much like the brain-eating ghouls, Ghost slots don’t have to be all that scary in order to make a good Halloween gambling game. Mostly they can just be friendly, happy, or just darn adorable.
That said, there are a few that come to mind that stand out from the howls and the shrieks, and given a little persuading, can show you where they’ve hidden their gold.
Two of the three top Ghosts slots below are based on films, and that’s not surprising. Short of putting a sheet over their heads, you need a little mythology behind the story to make an undead wraith or banshee truly scary.
Still, we’d happily play on these slot games all year round, especially our number one choice, which is a truly chilling affair.
