Play’n GO unveils Helloween
Play’n GO’s latest title Helloween is designed around an upcoming theme best known as the spooky season. The video slot features a lively soundtrack from popular German metal band Helloween, featuring tracks from their two popular albums Keeper of the Seven Keys Volume 1 and 2.
Although the Swedish iGaming software developer isn’t famed for launching “seasonal games”, Play’n GO stresses on the game’s novel honeycomb cluster instead of its Halloween theme, unlike its major rivals. According to the company’s official press release, the makers focused on the game’s soundtracks to accentuate the theme. The second highlight is the seven unique features, one of which is the Wild.
Bonus Features and Payout
Helloween features a 5-reel 3-row 10-payline layout during the base game. The designers included seven free spins, each of which have their own unique modifiers like wild reels, roaming wilds, and 2×2 wilds. Triggering the Helloween multiplier instantly rewards players with 10x free spins, while the game offers up to 96.2% RTP and 5,000x the current stake.
In order to trigger a win, players must land a winning symbol on each of the three rows starting from the left to the right. Buy-ins range between €0.10 and €100 per spin. With Quick Play in place, players can opt for Auto Spin mode too. Select up to a hundred consecutive spins and wait for a winning combination to appear. The Auto Spin stops mid-way when a bonus round is triggered.
Standard symbols include A, K, Q, J, 10, and 9 royals while a gold ring, creepy hands, a mysterious sorcerer, and ghouls are the premium symbols. The gold ring is the highest paying logo, which amplifies wins by 5, 10, and 20x when appearing across reels 3, 4, and 5 respectively. The pumpkin symbol is the in-game Wild and pays 20x when 5 symbols appear consecutively across the reels.
Helloween Free Spins Bonus
Players begin with seven free spins while the scatter symbols are collected as they appear. Gathering three scatters triggers the Keeper of the Seven Keys feature, which randomly unlocks one of the seven bonus in-game features. Landing the Helloween Free Spin bonus again restarts the cycle.
Keeper of the Seven Keys Bonus
Landing a 7 Keys scatter on reels 1, 3, and 5 simultaneously triggers the Keeper of the Seven Keys bonus. The wheel spins to award 1 of the 7 in-game bonuses, which rewards the player with five free spins.
After either bonus rounds playoff, the game randomly triggers the Helloween multiplier, which amplifies the current stake by 2x, 3x, 5x, or 10x.
Helloween isn’t the unique game on the block. However, it sure offers a bunch of novelties to keep the players interested. This medium volatile video slot is ideal for amateurs and veterans looking for casual entertainment and packs a bunch of features to keep the momentum alive. Overall, the game offers a decent proposition and is a valued addition in Play’n GO’s portfolio.
