It doesn’t have to be Halloween to be haunted you know. Those ghosts out there work full-time you know and they’re not that pleasant you know. There’s plenty of scary moments in this slot from High 5 Games but hopefully you will be cheering instead when you get some big wins thanks to the several bonus features that this game contains.
Who is the Haunted Horseman? Well he’s a decapitated man who’s evil (I’d be evil if I was decapitated) and he travels around on his horse seeking victims. All very pleasant indeed and if I were you I’d avoid Sleepy Hollow. As you might suspect, this game has a spooky look to it. In the background, we can see a dark forest where the trees have lost their leaves and some poor soul is probably going to lose his life to the Haunted Horseman.
This slot has a total of 99 pay-lines which is an impressive amount and will hopefully supply you with some good wins. You don’t have to be playing all 99 on each spin of the reels and can use the control buttons underneath the reels to allow you to decide how many to play. You can play either three, nine, fifteen, forty-five or all 99 of the pay-lines.
The minimum cost of playing with all pay-lines activated is 0.33 and the maximum 132 so a wide range. It’s a little bit more complicated in this game though due to the feature. That’s the Mystery Bucks and if activated increases the minimum cost to 0.60 and the maximum 240. Ensure you play at a level that isn’t going to cause you any financial worries if lady luck turns on you.
The symbols in this game features a pumpkin, a man with a lantern, a pumpkin man, two women and one of course must be brunette and the other blonde, a horseman, the Haunted Horseman logo and the Queen to Ace playing card symbols. Both the horseman and pumpkin man have 350x multipliers if five come along on an activate pay-line and it’s 325x for five of the man with a lantern.
The wild symbol in this game is the game logo and only appears on the second, third, fourth and fifth reels. It can substitute for all the other symbols apart from the pumpkin which is the scatter in this game.
The game includes the tumbling reels feature and this can bring along a fair few wins. When you get a winning combination, the symbols that created it suddenly disappear. That leaves a big gap in the reels and new symbols tumble down to replace them. That means we have a different set of reels now and they are re-evaluated to see if any new wins have been created. If that is the case then the process is repeated all over again and continues to do so until the tumbling reels don’t create a new winning combination. I love this feature and it can produce some great wins.
If you get at least three pumpkin scatter symbols on the reels then that triggers the free spins round. You receive a total of nine free spins and they are played on a new set of reels with more wilds. It’s not the most complicated free spins round and you can’t re-trigger further free spins but it can provide some decent wins. I guess the tumbling reels feature is almost another free spins round anyway.
There’s also the Mystery Bucks Feature and if you have activated it and then trigger the free spins then it continues into those free spins. When this is activated, when those symbols disappear as part of the tumbling reels feature, they also display a credits value which can be between 10 and 100 credits. This does cost extra to play so only use it if you can afford to do so.
Ensure that you look through the paytable to find out all the details about this game. It’s full of useful information about the free spins round, the wild symbol, the Mystery Bucks feature and of course that helpful tumbling reels feature. Also have some free games so you can see how everything works in this game.
If you enjoy playing this spooky game, then try out some others that have similar gameplay. There’s ‘Valkyrie Queen’ also from High 5 games that also features those tumbling reels that can get you so many wins and has a free spins round. Also try out the Playtech slot ‘Battle of the Gods.’ That also has a free spins round but the amount you can get is unlimited and offers extra wilds in that free spins round.
The scariest thing about this game is how good it is. The spooky theme is well adhered to and there are plenty of ways to get wins. You might have worked out by now that I love the tumbling reels feature but it can get you some good wins. So, can the free spins round and the Mystery Feature so this slot is definitely recommended.
