If spooky stuff entertains you, you must be a fan of Halloween and the overall atmosphere this holiday creates. Slot developers often draw inspiration from holidays and as you can guess, Halloween is one of them. The Halloween imagery is certainly inspiring with jack-o’-lanterns, costumes and sweet treats which make this holiday even more enjoyable. Without putting your costume on, you can trick or treat some of the best Halloween-themed slot machines and win big while having fun.

Halloween Fortune

The 2012 Playtech title is an example of a real Halloween-themed slot. With carved pumpkins acting as Wilds and delivering as much as 10,000 coins for a five of a kind combination, Halloween Fortune will keep you entertained while paying some big bucks. Although Pumpkin Wild is undoubtedly the most lucrative symbol, the story behind the slot revolves around three witches which are responsible for a highly rewarding bonus feature awarding up to 20 free spins and up to 10x multipliers. Look out for the cauldron standing for the Bonus symbol to trigger it and choose a witch that will cook you some magic potion.

The 5-reel 20-payline slot with the RTP of 97% pays quite often and if you are lucky enough to reveal free spins with 7x or 10x multipliers, you will see your balance soar. The slot’s graphics are as great as its bonus features, so start spinning the reels populated with black cats, ravens, bottles of magic potion and other creepy stuff for some big payouts.

Count Spectacular

The 5-reel 25-payline slot released by Realtime Gaming (RTG) back in 2010 is still popular among players due to its rewarding bonus features and huge payouts it can award. Although it can be classified as a horror-themed slot machine, we have included it in this list. Count Spectacular might seem scary but at the same time it is a funny release you can enjoy during the Halloween season. The reels are home to symbols depicted as vampire’s mansion, bats and garlic including Count Spectacular himself.

Count Spectacular stands for Wild and awards 10,000 coins for a five of a kind combination. He will expand to complete multiple winning combinations and can substitute for Scatter, too. When Count Spectacular shows up on the reels 1 and 5 simultaneously, you will be offer to choose from 12 free spins with all prizes tripled or 4 re-spins with Wilds kept in their positions. This is a slot of high volatility, so it takes time and patience to land a win.

Happy Halloween

Just like aforementioned Halloween Fortune, the Play’n GO title released in October 2015 is a perfect slot you can play to spice up the celebration of this holiday. On the reels you will meet the members of the Grave family dressed up to take you on a twilight trick-or-treating trip. The slot which uses a 5×4 reel set and up to 50 paylines reflects the spine-chilling spirit of Halloween with its spooky symbols represented as batty cookies, curious candy apples and yummy slimy ghosts.

The maximum payout stands at 100,000 coins and Jack-o’-Lantern Wild will help you win it. The red-haired witch stands for Scatter which will be your ticket for the night ride and 10 free spins with extra Wilds added to the reels on each spin. With the RTP of 96%, Happy Halloween is a highly volatile game which can make Halloween your favourite holiday.

Hell City

The iSoftBet release takes you to the city occupied by fearsome creatures like ghosts, vampires, witches, Frankenstein’s monster and more. In comparison to other slot machines listed here, Hell City is the most serious one with no funny elements. It will really send shivers down your spine once you start spinning the reels. In terms of functionality, the game features 5 reels and 5 adjustable paying lines while aesthetically, it looks quite simple with graphics and sounds created to scare you.

The game benefits from Wild, which is the most lucrative symbol awarding up to 8,000 coins, and two bonus features. Pumpkin Bonus triggered by 3 and more carved pumpkin symbols awards cash prizes worth up to 500x your bet. Land 3 or more ghost symbols on the reels and you will trigger Graveyard Bonus awarding up to 875x your stake. Dare to step into Hell City and win big.
