Are you brave enough to enter into the House of Doom? This 5 reel, 10 payline video slot comes from Play ’N Go and has a strong heavy metal theme. Attractions in this house of horrors include expanding wilds, free spins with added wilds and a classic pick’em round. Play on your desktop, tablet or mobile from between 10p and £100 per spin.

As you’d expect from a video slot called House of Doom, there’s a dark, oppressive feel to the design here. The House of Doom, flanked by walls full of skulls forms the backdrop to the reels. There you’ll see a selection of symbols that could all come straight out of a metal lovers black t-shirt collection.

You’ll see blood coloured A to 10 values alongside pentagrams, crosses, red roses and animal skulls. Land 5 of the latter across a payline and you’ll pocket 70 times your bet. Helping to create winning combinations here is the wild which replaces everything and offers awards of up to 100 times your bet.

1 reel is illuminated on each base game spin. Hope to see the wild land on that illuminated reel as it replaces all other symbols to turn the whole reel wild. House of Doom also comes with 2 bonus features:

Doom Spins feature – these are triggered by landing the House of Doom scatter on reels 1, 3 and 5 on the same spin. You’ll then receive 10 free spins with the House of Doom scatter transforming into a second wild. Between 2 and 5 reels are illuminated on each free spin, giving you the chance to land multiple stacked wilds on the same free spin. You can also retrigger with an unlimited amount of free spins on offer.

Skulls of Abyss Bonus feature – this pick me round is triggered by landing the skull symbol on the middle 3 reels on the same spin. Choose from the objects shown to win cash prizes, multipliers which can treble payouts, more picks or a triggering of the Doom Spins feature.

If you like horror or heavy metal, you should find plenty to like here. The sounds and visuals are nicely done and there’s a decent range of extras on offer. House of Doom should appeal if you like volatile titles too as the variance here is high. Expect some lengthy winless spells. Trigger the Doom Spins feature then get lucky with the expanding wilds and some cracking action is possible – to the tune of 2,500 times your total bet on each free spin.

This isn’t one of our favourite themes but House of Doom works pretty well. Even if you’re not a metal head, it’s worth venturing in and taking a snoop. If you do like the theme, Motörhead by NetEnt should do the trick.
