Microgaming's Halloweenies Video Slot Review

August 19, 2012

 

Microgaming is well-known for creating slots based on a lot of different themes and concepts. Films, television shows, comics and other forms of media have been used to create a lot of different slots, but Microgaming also uses more typical motifs from time to time as the basis for their games. The Halloweenies video slot is a great example of a high-quality game that has been built around the relatively simple theme of Halloween and going trick-or-treating. Halloweenies uses the popular five reel video slot format with 20 paylines in total, and it has a nice selection of features that give the players an impressive amount of value for their time.

Halloweenies features coin sizes starting at $0.01 and going all the way up to $0.50. Despite the limited coin size, players are allowed to bet up to five coins on each payline, so you don't have to worry about limited total bets. The minimum bet in this game is $0.20 per spin if you play with all paylines active and the maximum is $50 per spin. This game has a somewhat cartoonish feel that makes the game fun to play. The sound effects match and help to create an overall theme that fits the idea of Halloween.

The wild symbol in this game can get you a 13,000x jackpot if you get five of them on the same payline. However, You can also get a 4,500x payout if you get five of the Dog symbol on the same payline. The scatter symbols help to round out the upper end of the payouts in this game since five of the Bunny scatter symbol anywhere on the reels after a spin will give you a 10,000x win.

The Bunny symbol is a scatter symbol in this game, but so is the Pumpkin symbol. If you get three of more of the Bunny symbol on the reels, then you'll get a set of 13 free spins with a 3x multiplier. This is the first of the two bonus rounds. Three or more of the Pumpkin symbol on the reels will take you to a pick-a-box style bonus round with bonus prizes are large as 5,300x. With the free spin multiplier, you can win a jackpot worth up to 39,000x in this game, making it the largest jackpot available. Overall, this is a great game that appeals to all kinds of players.
