Do you believe in ghosts, and things that go bump in the night? Well if so and you are looking for an exciting, yet creepy slot game to get your adrenaline pumping, Haunted House; a 5-reel 20-payline video slot machine powered by Cryptologic software is for you. The theme is kooky and spooky, and all the things that make us afraid of the dark find their way onto the reels in a slot machine form.
Finding a casino that offers Haunted House in their video slot section is the first step and there are plenty of reputable Cryptologic (Wagerlogic) out there that host the Haunted House slot game. The game itself is a coin based game with denominations that vary between $0.01 and $5, making the maximum bet allowable $125 per spin. Now this amount is unlikely to be used by many players, but it just shows you the versatility this game has for its players. The minimum bet can be as low as $0.01 because the paylines can be reduced, however; it’s recommended that they all stay enabled.
Now on to the good stuff, the theme. The theme is dark and scary but fun and exciting all at the same time. The design is simple and easy to use, the graphics were designed with great detail and the animations add to the amusement factor of the game. The symbols are cartoon like and include; Ghost, Mummy, Rocking Chair, Chandelier, Spider, Cat, Vampire, Bat, Ball and Chain and other spooky icons. The music is true to the theme and sings from your speakers as you spin the reels. The largest paying symbol in the game is the Haunted House wild which pays 5,000 coins for five icons on an enabled payline.
The wild is the Haunted House which acts as a substitute for all symbols in the game besides the scatter. This symbol will not activate any bonus features by itself, but does substitute for the “red border” symbols that are needed to activate the bonus feature.
The scatter is the Door symbol and awards payouts according to the paytable. This happens when two or more symbols appear on the screen in any spot, and are paid according to your total bet. The ultimate scatter award is 100x your total bet, so it could help you play longer.
The bonus feature is a bit different here in Haunted House. The symbols that are normal symbols during the game may appear with a red border on reels 1, 3 and 5. If all three red bordered symbols appear on a single spin, you will be given extra wilds. This is the only feature in the game and it’s quite simple and not as exciting as other games by the same software.
In my opinion, the slot is still worth playing if you are into fun games with great payouts. Haunted House will bring out the fear, fear of the depleting bankroll if you aren’t lucky during your spinning session. If you are lucky enough to come out alive, you may walk away a winner.
