There are some films that are destined to become cult classics. ‘Ghostbusters’ is one of them and since its release in 1984 it’s become more and more popular. Crazy ghosts, plenty of comedy from some top US stars and a theme tune guaranteed to get you singing along, all make for a hit movie. Now we have a slot version from IGT and it’s just as much fun, and hopefully a lot better than the awful looking trailer for the 2016 version of the film.
First things first, yes it does include the legendary ‘Ghostbusters’ theme which plays while the reels are spinning. It really couldn’t have come out without this music. If you’re playing for a long time though, it’s a good job that you can mute it. You really only can have a certain amount of a good thing.
The background to the reels shows the city that is soon to be under threat from ghosts. Not that they have too much to worry about with the Ghostbusters around. This is a five-reel game that has three rows of reels and a total of 30 paylines. That’s a fixed amount so you simply have to work out your stake for each spin of the reels. The cost of playing the game is between £0.50 and £250 a spin
Even better for lovers of the movie, the symbols include photos of the five male leads in the film. There’s also the ghost trap, the proton pack, the P.K.E. meter, ecto goggles and the converted ambulance they drive around in.
There are two wild symbols in this game. There’s the Slimer Wild and the Purple Ghost Wild, these substitute for several of the symbols to get you more wins. It can’t substitute for the Ghost Bonus symbol as this gets you into the Ballroom Busters Bonus and the Stay Puft Free Spins.
There are some mystery features included that can definitely put a smile on your face. These can turn up at any time so keep an eye out for them. They include a multiplier that can multiply the win you’ve just had by anything from 2x to 5x. There’s also a cash award that gives you a win of between 50x and 1000x the coin value of your bet.
Wilds always help you on the way to a win and one random award sees between one and three reels being covered in slime and becoming totally wild. Still on the wild theme, another random feature can turn between one and four reel positions into the Purple Ghost Wild symbol. This number can climb as adjacent symbols can also become wild, now that can really help get you some good wins.
Take a look through the paytable to fully learn how this game runs. When you do press the paytable button, a voice comes up from one of the characters with sayings such as “So how much money are we talking here?” A few free games will also help you learn how all the features can help you win lots of cash.
