Sleepy Hollow is a Chartwell game. Chartwell appears to have closed down with the casinos offering their games standing alone with no further updates. Chartwell do not as standard release the house edge information of their games. However some of the casinos offering Chartwell games have started releasing this information. Bet Victor lists the house edge of Sleepy Hollow as 5%. When playing at other venues this figure should be treated as a guideline only as the game may be configurable.
Based on the short story by Washington Irving and the recent film starring Johnny Depp, Sleepy Hollow sees you traveling as Ichabod Crane as you try to unravel the mysterious deaths in Sleepy Hollow.
This game is a 5 reel game, with 9 paylines and you can bet up to 10 coins on each payline.
There’s only one bonus which is activated by getting three or more of the bonus ‘Headless Corpse’ symbols on adjacent reels. Any of the three different bonus Headless Corpse symbols can activate the feature, but all three have to match. When this happens you will be taken to a screen with two rows of bags (presumably containing human heads). You have to pick one bag at a time. In the bags is either a multiplier or the word ‘Finish’. If you choose the Finish symbol first you win all the multipliers available, at any other time the Finish symbol ends the bonus feature. You keep picking bags until you find the Finish symbol.
Sleep Hollow offers a fairly weak game for a rich theme and a highish house edge to boot.
