Halloween is getting closer, and many online slot developers are working hard to release games in the holiday spirit. Play’n GO was one of the first to do so, launching a slot called Helloween, which is actually named after a popular German power metal band.
The game is a sort of tribute to the work of the band. Players who spin the reels of the newest Play’n GO’s release will have an opportunity to listen to the songs from albums “Keeper of the Seven Keys” Part I and Part II.
Bringing Metal and Slots Together
According to the official press release for this game, the team at Play’n GO had to collaborate closely with the bend to bring the ultimate experience. Namely, the band and the slot creators chose the songs together, along with the correct videos to match. Ultimately, they had to make sure that the band’s tone matches that of the new slot.
This is not the first time Play’n GO pulled something like this off, as they already paired their slots with bands such as Twisted Sister and Saxon. It’s also worth mentioning that they made a similar approach to games such as the Hugo series.
The two sides collaborated successfully and had plenty of great moments, with the Helloween band members even carving their own pumpkins for the slot.
Helloween Video Slot Features
Special features are a vital part of every online video slot, and this one is no exception. The features were designed to fit the narrative of the game and contribute to the player experience.
Helloween is a game that relies on Wild symbols in many ways. There are a total of seven different Wilds in the game. Apart from the standard Wild that can substitute any other symbol in the game, Helloween also has six more Wilds, with each having unique features.
In fact, even the Scatter symbol has some properties of the Wild. If it fails to deliver free spins, it will help you create big wins during the base game. Once you collect three scatters, you’ll receive a total of seven free spins, and the good news is that you can actually collect three more during the bonus game and extend it for additional seven spins.
The game comes with a total of 10 paylines and a maximum win of x5,000. Moreover, it has a medium variance and an RTP of 94.2%. If you’re a fan of metal and enjoy the music of the popular band, you should definitely check out Helloween (both the band and the slot!).
However, you don’t have to know about Helloween at all to enjoy spinning the reels of this game. Above all, it’s a Halloween-inspired slot, meaning you’ll stumble upon plenty of spooky and interesting symbols that are closely related to the band but also the spirit of the popular holiday. Have fun playing and good luck!
