Halloweenies And Lucky Witch Microgaming Online Pokies
October 21, 2016
Microgaming has a massive portfolio of online pokies and you will find several for any occasion. This is especially true of Halloween. This article picks the best of the Halloween themed pokies that can be played at Australian online casinos like Casino Mate, Royal Vegas and All Slots.
Halloweenies has been the most popular Halloween themed online pokie because it is based in the concept of trick or treat, which is the essence of the festival. The high payout symbols are the costumes worn by the tricksters and include werewolf, witch, Frankenstein and skeleton. The low paying symbols are five different types of sweet treats. The eeriness associated with Halloween comes through the Wild logo, which is made up of creepy insects. The wild symbol also awards the top line payouts and starts from two of a kind combinations. Five wild symbols on an active payline pay a whopping 13,000 coins. The jack-o-lantern activates the bonus game on the second screen when you land three or more scattered on the reels. You have to pick pumpkins from a patch by a haunted house to win bonus credits. The number of picks that you get is equal to the number of symbols in the triggering spin. Three or more bunny symbols anywhere on the reels award scatter payouts that are multiplied by the total bet. You also win 13 free spins in which all payouts are tripled.
There are many “scary” creatures associated with Halloween, but none as popular as the witch. And in online pokies the witches are usually beautiful and young. Lucky Witch featuring one such damsel is the other fantastic Halloween themed pokie from Microgaming. The high paying symbols are witch, cat, owl and lizard. The low paying symbols are other paraphernalia associated with witchcraft. The game logo is the wild symbol. It substitutes only for the high paying symbols but appears stacked on the reels and has a 2x multiplier property. The potions symbol awards scatter payouts and triggers 13 free spins. During the free spins the witch also acts as a wild symbol that doubles payouts. The Mystery Bonus feature gets triggered when the cauldron symbol appears on reels 1, 3 and 5. You get to play one out of four second screen bonus games through a random selection. These bonus games have different thematic settings like potions, pumpkins, witch's vault and spell books. During the bonus games an imp may appear and boost the multipliers up to as much as 52 times your total bet.
