Halloween is near and so is the release of Playtech’s new release that follows the success of a hit horror-themed slot.
Halloween Fortune II features the same characters of good-looking three witches brewing magic potions and adding a magic spell or two to the reels.
The soundtrack and the symbols are pretty much the same, but the features are completely different. This time there will be 25 paylines across a 5×3 grid and a single special feature to count on – Free Games.
Still, the witches made sure that the free play sparks with additional bonuses in shape of multipliers and locked wilds. All Hallows’ Eve is going to bring a lot of treats your way.
What We Love
Halloween is everyone’s favourite theme and leaders of the industry, Playtech has managed to develop a spectacular game with amazing graphics and excellently implemented features. This was the case with their release Halloween Fortune and now they are keeping up the good work with Halloween Fortune II.
We love the fact that all the familiar characters are there, specifically the three gorgeous witches. This time they appear stacked across the reels and this is a nice boost for the base game.
Despite the allure of the sorceresses, everyone will be waiting for the game’s logo that triggers the Free Games round if there are three of them found on the reels.
What makes this round of 10 Free Spins special are added multipliers that start from 2x and climb all the way to 6x. Actually, you start off with 2x multiplier and then, two rounds later the multiplier increases by one. This means that you will play first two free spins with a 2x multiplier, 3rd and 4th spin with a 3x multiplier.
The 5th and 6th spin will be boosted by a 4x multiplier, while 7th and 8th spin will add a multiplier of 5x. The last two free spins will be played with 6x multiplier, which means that this is the moment when you stand to win the most.
What is more, during the entire free play, there will be a Wild symbol (the Jack O’Lantern pumpkin) in the center of the reel grid, to help you form winning combos. Though the Free Games is the only bonus round in this slot, it is, surely, worth the wait.
What We Do Not Like
Despite the fact that the Free Games round is pretty generous and pays off after a long wait, we were not pleased by having to wait so long until it is activated.
We understand that this contributes to the high volatility of the game, but there is simply not much to entertain you in the main game while you are waiting for the trick or treat. Moreover, there is no possibility to retrigger the Free Games, which was disappointing.
Despite the high volatility and the fact that you will be waiting for a long time until you get some horror thrill of this game, we believe that it is worth playing.
Playtech has made sure to deliver an amazing slot, which is spooky and charming at the same time and will definitely keep you immersed in the game and with the help of multipliers and stacked symbols, you might come across a cauldron full of gold. Halloween Fortune II is definitely worth the wait.
