If you like your video slots play to come with plenty of chills then Halloween Jack, a horror-themed game from NetEnt should certainly be of interest. It’s a 5 reel, 20 payline video slot that looks and sounds terrific and comes with some cracking extras. They include walking wild re-spins with 3x multipliers and a free spins round with stacked and expanding wilds. Play on your PC, tablet or mobile from between 20p and £100 per spin.
Most Halloween game have a bit of a comic horror feel when it comes to design. That’s not true of Halloween Jack though which really does try and deliver a few scares. The setting is a graveyard at night. The stone-style royal values are covered in creeping zombie hands. They’re joined by horseshoes, ravens, bats and horses.
The mysterious woman is the most lucrative symbol. Land 5 of her on a payline and you’ll pocket a 50 times bet award. NetEnt hasn’t shirked on the features in Halloween Jack which includes 3 potentially exciting bonus extras.
Walking Wild feature – every time a Jaco-O-Lantern wild appears, it awards a re-spin. The wild moves 1 reel to the left with each re-spin. The re-spins continue until there are no more wilds left on the reels. If a wild forms part of a winning combination here, the payout is trebled.
Free Spins feature – you’ll receive 10 free spins if you manage to land 3 or more of the box scatter on the same spin. Look out for the oil lanterns which can hit on reel 5. Each time these appear they’re collected in the meters to the right of the reels – this is for the Jack ‘o’ Lector feature.
After you’ve collected 3 lanterns, the Hell Hound Wilds, which are stacked 2-high, are unlocked. With 6 lanterns, you’ll bring the 3-high Stacked Jack-O-Lantern Wild into. Both these extras give you free re-spins as per the Walking Wild feature.
Find 9 and the Grim Death Expanding Wild is unlocked – the wild reel moves 1 reel to the left with each free spin (no re-spins). The Walking Wild feature can also hit during the free spins round meaning plenty of free re-spins and 3x multipliers when you get a win. Finally, 3 or more scatters will give you 5 more free spins.
The gameplay impresses too. Expect to see the Walking Wild feature regularly. The Free Spins feature is understandably harder to come by. Unlock the wild extras and they can be well worth the wait though. This highly volatile game can pay out 3,000 times your bet on every spin, free spin or re-spin!
If you enjoy the horror theme, then Halloween Jack is an ideal choice to get you in the mood for the creepiest festival of the year. Additionally, I would play Blood Suckers II – also by NetEnt.
