Halloween is a time of ghosts, ghouls, monsters… and great slot games, if you’ve seen any of the ones available online right now. Playtech has some to add to this collection, and we’re going to compare two of them here.
Halloween Fortune sounds like a nice idea, and both games look very appealing at first glance. But do they deliver a classic slots experience for All Hallows Eve, or is there more to enjoy here?
The first game has five reels and 20 paylines. It also has lots of spooky symbols, including Jack O’Lanterns, skulls with candles in them, black cats, and three witches. The game looks superb too, and it promises the chance to win up to 20 free games with a multiplier worth up to 10x. This can be done in the Witches’ Brew Bonus if you can find a cauldron on reels one and five at the same time. Which witch will be the lucky witch you will pick?
The sequel to the original Halloween Fortune game has a similar welcome screen, yet there are variations. Those variations continue through to the reels as well, where you will find taller symbols spinning on the reels along with the usual 1 x 1 ones. The pumpkin is a wild, and you get to play up to 25 lines this time too. The logo for the game is a scatter, and this is your trigger to unlocking the free games. There is an increasing multiplier at work in these, along with the pumpkin acting as a locked wild.
So, which game do we like the most? It’s honestly difficult to see much difference between them in terms of quality, but we are just going to give the edge to the sequel. Why? Well, those bigger symbols are part of it, because you never know where they are going to land. You also seem to get stacked symbols on the reels more often, and this can make it easier to win prizes.
We also liked the animation when symbols trigger a win for you. This adds to the depth and appeal of the game, and that make a big difference to the overall fun you get.
But try both titles – even if it isn’t Halloween – and see if you get a feel for one or both of them.
