Horror films have been around for hundreds of years now, they continue to be a huge hit and have cult followings. Every year there are so many new horror films released it is hard to keep up to date with them all.
We all love the feeling of tension and suspense from the latest hit horror flick. Well, what about if you could take that suspense and horror and put it into a slot game? Good news, the developers caught on to our thirst of scary slots — so we’ve decided to look at three of the creepiest slots on the web!
Nightmare On Elm Street Slot
One, two, Freddy’s coming for you! Three, four, better lock your door. Five, six, grab your crucifix. Seven, eight, going to stay up late. Nine, ten, never sleep again. That’s right, Freddy is coming for you, well in his latest slot game. Nightmare on Elm Street is based around the iconic character that’s been lurking on our screens since 1984. His ability to kill people in their dreams made him a very powerful enemy.
This super-spooky slot has five reels and 30 paylines. If you like to have music on while playing slots, then you’ll be happy to know that the slot doesn’t let down when it comes to creepy music — just don’t get too scared. Freddy stands to the left hand side of the reels with his blade fingers on show to scare you even more.
The main symbols in the game are scared characters from the films. The other minor symbols are blood spattered and blood written 9,10, J, Q, K and A. The special icons include a never sleep again scatter, a pick me icon that triggers a mini game and a silhouette of Freddy as the wild symbol.
The slot offers up three bonus features and they are as follows:
Never sleep again: to trigger this feature you need three bonus symbols on any reel. In the game you are trying to stay awake and must pick items such as coffee to keep you awake. But once your eyes close the game is over and you will get your prize depending on how many items you chose.
Pick me: for this bonus you need to get a wild icon on reels one and five. Yu then get given the options of several symbols. Whichever symbol you pick will reveal your prize.
Free spins: the amount of spins you get depends on how many scatter symbols you get. If you get three of the scatter symbols, then you will get 10 free spins. If you get four of the icons, then you will receive 20 spins. Finally, if you manage to get five of the symbols then you will receive a huge 30 free spins. The only downfall to this feature is it cannot be re-triggered.
Batman: The Dark Knight Rises Slot Review
The Dark Knight Rises game has five reels and 243 ways to win! Powered by Microgaming, it’s based on the hit 2012 film featuring Christian Bale and Tom Hardy. The minimum stake is as low as 30p per spin and goes up to £15 per spin depending on how lucky you are feeling. Dark Knight Rises has no progressive jackpot unlike the first game created which may be positive or negative depending on what you like. There are many new features to this game though than the previous, these features are: the free spins accumulator, symbol scramble, split wilds and the fight mode which is all explained below.
The Symbol scramble feature is where the symbols on the reels move to new positions on other reels to give winning combinations. Split wilds feature is where the special wild symbol is on reel three and expands the reel. Fight mode, now this is a more complex feature of the game. Firstly, in this mode you receive a random number of free spins/multiplier, this then gets added to the free spins/multiplier in the bonus feature which is triggered by getting one or more scatter bonus, but more about that below.
Batman or Bane?
As I said above this bonus feature is triggered by getting one or more scatter bonus symbols anywhere on the reels, this then leads to 10 free spins and two options of bonus games. The two bonus games are where you choose Batman or Bane, so who will it be?
Bane bonus game is where the symbols explode and disappear to a new position if a winning combination is found. When the other symbols disappear new ones also drop in to give more chances of winning.
Batman bonus game is when you get an extra wild blast feature, so you get to choose a new symbol which increase the chances of winning.
We all know the classic horror film from the amazing Alfred Hitchcock. But what we didn’t know was that there is a slot based around the movie. Psycho was released in the 1960s but still continues to be a horror classic and a favourite within horror enthusiasts. The film was deemed very controversial for its time, it involved subject matter that were never before put into films. The slot mainly focuses around the iconic shower scene.
The game is visually brilliant and creepy; the developers definitely did a good job in capturing what Hitchcock made in the film. The slot has five reels and 25 paylines.
The slot is set in an isolated wooden house and also has video scenes throughout the game. You can play from as little as 25p per spin to a huge £50 per spin. The psycho wilds may be added to any spin, if you win with them in the base they can then be multiplied by up to 20 times.
To trigger the free game, you need to get three or more scatter symbols. The amount of spins you receive will depend on how many icons you got.
- Three symbols = 10 free spins.
- Four icons= 15 free spins.
- Five symbols= 20 free spins.
Most of the wilds will appear in this feature and can be multiplied by up to 40 times.
The free game can be re-triggered at any time in the game. Overall the maximum win you can get out of the game is a whopping 750 times your original stake.
If you fancy being scared or freaked out then, certainly checkout these slots for yourself. What do you think about these slots, have you played them? Let us know by dropping a comment below.
