Halloween Fortune 2 Slots - Playtech
ABOUT HALLOWEEN FORTUNE II SLOTS
Halloween Fortune II is the sequel to the popular original bearing the same name. A standard 5 reel, 25 payline slot, in which we see the return of the three witches who come partially stacked on the reels. The game gives us several bonus rounds with a locked Wild in the middle of the reel, and an increasing multiplier for chained wins. Released in October just in time for Halloween, Playtech chose to enter a competitive field.
The slot shows off a gorgeous backdrop of a creepy forest in the middle of nowhere, though it is unfortunately slightly obscured by the reels. Keeping up with the spooky theme, the symbols are what you would expect to see in a Halloween slot. Different coloured potions, a raven, a black cat, a skull candle, and three witches all act as paying icons. Halloween Fortune II also has special symbols: Wilds, shown as pumpkins, and Scatters, which are the logo of the game itself.
HOW TO PLAY
With 5 reels and 25 paylines, Halloween Fortune II sticks to what fans know and love. The game will allow you to adjust your line bet, so you’ll be betting between $0.25 up to $250 per reel spin. Additionally, Playtech’s October release also has an Autoplay option and a Turbo Mode for those who don’t feel like waiting.
Wilds in this game are an exciting symbol. They are included in the Free Spins bonus and have the chance to spread across the reels, and it doesn’t hurt that they are the highest paying icon in the game. When Free Spins are active, a Wild will be locked in the middle of the third reel, increasing chances of a win.
The fixed Wilds accompanying the game’s other special feature is certainly exciting, but it is just a supplement to the real thing. Players looking to win big in this slot should look to its bonus options for the juiciest payouts.
Triggered by landing three or more Scatters on the reels, the game will activate a Free Spins special, which gives you 10 bonus rounds. The slot will start you off with an x2 multiplier, which increases by one every two spins, and all wins are multiplied during that spin.
Scatters don’t deviate much from the norm, and considering this slot played it safe, we would not expect it to, either. Scatters are used to activate the Bonus Round feature, and offer a slight payoff on their own on top of that.
Without a doubt, the biggest win of the game will come from Wilds. Five Wilds in a row will give you x3000 your stake, and if you’re playing at the largest bet level, that will earn you $750,000. The best way to score this jackpot is to hopefully line them up during the Free Spins bonus, where you have one Wild guaranteed.
HALLOWEEN FORTUNE II ON MOBILE
The game feels oddly squished on mobile and tablet versions, and it is not just the smaller screens that contribute to it. While all the graphics are functionally the same, the play window feels smaller, perhaps to make the information beneath the window more visible.
Otherwise, you will find no difference in Halloween Fortune II from the desktop version, with only minor adjustments added to make it suitable for a touch interface.
