The Happy Halloween game can be found at casinos offering Play ‘n Go software. Play ‘n Go are a growing provider in the industry and have a rapidly expanding portfolio of both slots games and clients. They do offer a full casino platform, but primarily seem to be used as a bolt on package for extra slots games. Play ‘n Go do publish the Return to Player (RTP)/House Edge information for their slots games within the game help files. As such, we know that the house edge for Happy Halloween is 3.02%.
The Happy Halloween game is made up of 5 reels, each one 4 symbols high. There are 50 paylines, playing from left to right, excluding Scatter symbols, which pay any.
Wild – The Wild symbol is the “Pumpkin” which substitutes for all symbols other than Scatters.
Scatter – The “Witch” is the Scatter symbol.
Free Spins – Revealing 3 of the “Witch” Scatter symbols on a single spin will activate the free spins bonus and pay 4 times the bet. When this happens you will gain 10 free spins. You can re-trigger the free spins bonus once, up to a maximum of 20 free spins. On each free spin 2 additional Wild symbols will be stacked on reels 2,3,4 and 5.
Happy Halloween is clearly Play ‘n Go’s ticked box for the thematically inclined October slots gamer. The game offers little in the way of variety, but does a decent job of looking good. The icons are detailed, as is the background and they all, of course, fit the theme well. There are Wilds, Scatters and Free Spins, which can also be re-triggered, so all the basics are in place. The reality is, however, that “the basics” are all that is place here. There’s nothing extra, which is a shame for a theme that offers the potential for a bit of variety and interesting game play. The House Edge is actually not too bad, offering better value for money than your average slots game. Let’s face it, no one is going to play this game if it’s not October, so its shelf-life was always limited but the lack of innovation still disappoints.
