Halloween has arrived at Slot Boss, and we’re looking to celebrate the day right, which means we’ve got the eeriest, spookiest and most mysterious slots imaginable all in one place for your trick or treating delights! We’ve also got a selection of films that we’re hoping are converted into an online slot in the future. So get into your costumes, grab a goody bag and hit the online slots.
What are Halloween Slots?
Defining what exactly is a Halloween slot is quite tricky because the definition will be different for each player. However, these are just three elements that we think each slot needs:
A dark theme:
Perhaps the obvious place to begin is in the theme behind the slot. All of our Halloween slots have an in-depth dark theme behind them that is layered with various spooky or mysterious aspects. This can include symbols, backgrounds, characters and more!
A story behind the slot
Let’s be honest, if you’re watching a horror film, a dreadful story can turn a high-potential film into a failure, and in reality, casino games are no different. Suppose a Halloween slot lacks any substance behind it. In that case, it becomes the same as any other slot, and realistically, slots such as Fluffy Favourites certainly won’t get you in the Halloween spirit.
A unique gaming experience
A unique theme requires a unique gaming experience. You wouldn’t expect a horror-themed slot to be identical to the Starburst slot, for example. Otherwise, 364 days of the year, players are just going to play the more popular slot. A lot of the games that we will cover in the best Halloween slots section have several unique features that make the games playable all year round.
What else makes a good Halloween slot?
In our opinion, the three elements above are the requirements for a standard Halloween slot, but some providers have gone the extra mile to provide a unique experience. Halloween slots usually contain action-packed bonus rounds that can offer different winning opportunities which is why they are so popular. In our opinion, if a slot:
Can sustain player interest with multiple factors. Can create a dark and gloomy atmosphere that epitomises the Halloween spirit. Has a ‘treat’ of a payout.
Then, the slot has the potential to be regarded as a Halloween slot! And that means you’ll find it on this list.
Best Halloween Slots
Lucky Halloween - Red Tiger Gaming
This 5-reel slot has 20 paylines for players to utilise when they spin in this half comical/half spooky Halloween slot where the Pumpkin Biker is the main character. There are six bonus features for players to play as well as the usage for 3x3 mega wilds, random wilds, a pumpkin tree multiplier and the special reels where players can spin only high-value symbols.
If you’re playing Lucky Halloween, put in some earphones, turn off the lights for a truly emerging experience as the design has a glossy, moonlit backdrop and some incredibly unique symbols such as cupcakes, potions and pumpkins. The Pumpkins are wild and can substitute for everything except scatters. Meanwhile, the Pumpkin Rider can arrive and provide a plethora of mini bonuses.
Lucky Halloween - Best Bonus Feature
The Full Moon Bonus is our favourite feature from this fantastic Halloween slot, as the moon is in full view, it’s the middle of the night and our slots may just give you a fright but they’re more likely to provide delight. This bonus can be triggered by landing on three bonus symbols anywhere on the reels, once triggered, players will climb the tower and receive multipliers as they move along their path. Once players reach the top of the tower, they could possibly receive multipliers up to 800x!
Vampire Desire - Barcrest
Now, if you’re out this Halloween rather than playing slots online, you’ll very likely see tonnes of people dressed as vampires. However, if you are looking for something genuinely eerie, you’re much more likely to find that with the vampires of Vampire Desire. Vampire Desire is one of the best slots on this list and was actually our handpicked Halloween release for 2019. The slot has 5x5 reels which initially contain 50 paylines, but players can open up the top half of the reels and expand the slot to 10x5 and access 100 paylines! Then the game drops Expanding Wilds, Mighty Reels and the Lock It Link bonus and mixes them into a magical cauldron and boom you’ve got a juicy slot that not even Dracula himself could suck out the brilliance of this slot.
The eeriness of this slot comes from the theme which contains a dark-gothic style which is incredibly unique. However, if you leave the slot on autoplay and turn on the sound, the consistent music that players per spin is very unsettling and adds an unorthodox feel that makes this slot one of the most unique Halloween slots on Slot Boss.
Vampire Desire - Best Bonus Feature
Once players land three or more Heart symbols on the reels, they will activate the Lock It Link bonus. Once activated, the three symbols that triggered this feature will transform into Golden Heart symbols and are linked together and contain a random multiplier with three Free Spins. Blue and Red Heart symbols will be active and appear on the reels, once locked in place and provide a random multiplier value. When a Red Heart symbol is connected, the Free Spins reset and when a Blue Heart symbol has connected the top of the reels will be activated once again, this then resets the spins back to four.
Pig Wizard - Blueprint Gaming
The first of the Jackpot slots on this list is the Pig Wizard slot which is one of the most colourful and interesting slots on Slot Boss, and there is a Harry Potter theme that is evident throughout. There are also an impressive five bonus features that are very different and unique to play such as the Squeal or No Squeal Bonus, Trail of Magic, Magic Mirror Free Spins and Mystical Map.
Pig Wizard - Best Bonus Feature
We mentioned four of the fantastic five bonus features, but the one we left out was the Jackpot King which comes in our Progressive Jackpot, which can be activated during the Magical Map Bonus as players reveal the Progressive Jackpot symbol during the round. This game uses the Jackpot King feature found in other Blueprint games. It is a multi-stage game that allows you to play for the progressive jackpot if you make it to the final stage. Jackpot King’s give out the biggest Jackpots on Slot Boss, as 0.13% of each player’s stake is added to the reserve pot. Once claimed it resets into the reserve pot total.
Ghostbusters Plus - IGT
Based on the popular Ghostbusters films, this game epitomises the creative side of Halloween slots. This slot was the first game on Slot Boss to include the Level-Up feature and remains one of the best online casino slots with it. One reason this feature is so popular is that it rewards players for the length they play the game as they can progress through the ten levels of this slot, with the bonuses they receive improving. This means that the RTP, volatility, and maximum payouts change throughout the game. The levels and their rewards are:
- Level 1 - Multiplier Ghost Wilds: 3x, 5x, 10x and Equipment Feature: Proton Pack - Level 2 - Equipment Feature: Ghost Sniffer - Level 3 - Expanding Ghost Wild - Level 4 - Equipment Feature: PKE Meter - Level 5 - Extra Ghost Wilds - Level 6 - Equipment Feature: Ecto Goggles - Level 7 - Wild Ghost Expansion: Cross - Level 8 - Equipment Feature: Psychogram Helmet - Level 9 - Extra Ghost Wilds - Level 10 - Tobin’s Spirit Guide
Ghostbusters Plus: Best Bonus Feature
If players land three bonus symbols on the first, third and fifth reels, they will unlock the Free Spins bonus round which can provide up to 25 Free Spins. During the bonus, players must zap the ghost Zuul to receive more spins and wild symbols. The bonuses included are:
Up to x25 Multiplier on the Multiplier Ghost Wilds. The Expanding Ghost Wild expands to all positions adjacent to the symbol. Want more wilds? The Extra Ghost Wild will conjure five additional wild symbols.
More Halloween Slots
Have you already played our Halloween slots? Or perhaps the slots above aren’t what you’re looking for. Do not despair; we have more brilliant slots just waiting for you to play.
From evil ghosts in Ghostbusters to the friendliest ghost to grace the realm. Casper is back in what is perhaps a slightly less traditional Halloween slot, but this 5-reel, 40 payline title from Blueprint Gaming contains a creepy soundtrack and all the makings of a fantastic online slot. The main bonus round here is the Casper Free Spins bonus which begins with 5 Free Spins and introduces the mystery mirror symbol which can add random symbols at any time. These Free Spins can be re-triggered to provide up to 255 Free Spins.
Ooh Ahh Dracula is a unique slot game. The comical graphics perhaps take away from the Halloween spirit, but if you’re someone who wants a Halloween slot without the dark, eerie theme, this should be your first port of call. However, it’s well known that Barcrest focuses on how a slot plays rather than how it looks, and that is apparent in the gameplay of Ooh Ahh Dracula. There are five bonus features in this slot, the most significant of which is the Free Spins bonus round which allows players to upgrade the bonus by landing heart symbols. There are three rounds of Free Spins that players can potentially spin through, with up to 30 Free Spins and six wild symbols to be won.
Another slot created by Red Tiger Gaming, Devil’s Number is one of the creepiest, eeriest online slots on site. Set in an old library with a comic book style where players look to find the Mark of the Beast and strike a deal with the devil himself. Spin this slot on October 31st and see if you can land the Devil’s Number - 666.
Anyone that’s seen a horror film knows that on most occasions, horror and romance do not mix well. However, in this Microgaming game, the two couldn’t combine better. This slot contains four character symbols which can provide players with some of the biggest wins available in Halloween slots. Are you looking for multipliers or Free Spins? Well, here you can find both of them and more with brilliant features such as Vampire Bats, Rolling Reels and Wild Vines!
Our final slot is the brilliant Rich Wilde and the Shield of Athena. This is the latest of the Rich Wilde series by Play N’Go and contains the character, Cat Wilde. If you’re well-versed in Greek mythology, you will recognise a lot of symbols. However, if you’re not, this slot is still fantastic.
Are you looking for big wins?
Players can win up to 10,000x their stake in Rich Wilde’s most astonishing venture yet.
