Theme of the Game
The wicked witches are back in a spooky sequel to Halloween Fortune. The three enchantresses come as dazzling as ever to charm you into dark haunted woods with the help of black cats, ravens, skulls and bats.
Stacked on the reels, red, blue and green witch will brew magic potions and prepare special tricks for you in expectation of the spookiest night of the year.
The amusing horror-themed slot will surprise you with Free Spins and increasing multipliers that guarantee hefty payouts. Be sure to carve plenty of Jack O’ Lanterns as is the tradition on Halloween, because it will reward you the most in the base game.
The soundtrack and the graphics are worthy of the spectacular predecessor, though Halloween Fortune II comes a bit brighter and more colourful. After the success of the first Halloween-themed slot, we can’t wait to hit the reels on the sequel.
The leading gaming solutions developer, Playtech brings a sequel to their first Halloween-themed slot, which turned out to be a big hit. With over 15 years of experience, Playtech is one of the leading names in the gaming industry, best known for their Omni-Channel platform that allows the users to access all of their services through a single account.
Their extensive offer includes online casinos, bingo, live dealer gaming, sports betting, mobile gaming and fixed odds games. Recently they have won the Digital Industry Supplier Award at Global Gaming Awards 2016.
How to Play It
Halloween Fortune II comes with 5 reels and 25 paylines playable from $0.20 per spin and available on desktop, mobile and tablet.
Covered with cobwebs the control board gives you the option to hit the spin button yourself or let the magic pot spin it for you. We found ourselves hitting the Turbo mode to speed up the reels, which came in handy during dry spells.
There is no need to mention that the witches will enchant you with their beauty, especially because they come stacked across the reels covering two tiles at once. Apart from looking hot in their tight costumes and hats, they will also increase your likelihood of payouts.
However, we advise you to pay more attention to the main symbol of Halloween, Jack O’Lantern as this carved pumpkin will reward a staggering 3,000 times your stake if you land five of them on the reels. It also appears as a Wild symbol that has the ability to replace any symbol but the Scatter.
Another high-paying symbol you will want to keep your eye on is the skull with a candle on it, which returns your stake 1,000 times for five of a kind.
Scatter is depicted as the eerie writing of game’s title and its main role is to trigger the Free Games. Typically, you will need three Scatters to activate the free spins.
The rest of the symbols are sharp and scary renderings of skulls, ravens, black cats and potions that will give you goosebumps paired with the spooky music in the background.
T&C Apply 18+
The highlight of Halloween Fortune II is the Free Games round that comes with a magic twist. When three logos of the game appear on the reels at the same time, they will transform into the spooky writing Free Games with a witch’s hat on top. That is when the real thrill begins.
Not only do you get 10 Free Spins, but you also start them off with a 2x multiplier which increases after every two spins. This, practically, means that after 3rd free spin, your payouts will be boosted by a 3x multiplier, while 5th free spin will bring a 4x multiplier.
This goes on until the 7th free spin when the multiplier increases by one and amounts to 5x. Finally 9th spin will introduce the top multiplier of 6x.
Another perk added to the free play is the stacked Wild which appears in the centre of the layout, that is, in the middle of the third reel.
The pumpkin will faithfully watch out for your winning combos until the last Free Spins.
With the locked Wild and increasing multipliers, we don’t see how anyone can loose with this game. However, you might go a long way until you hit the Free Games round.
The maximum amount to bet in this slot is set to $250, which is pretty high and will probably appeal to those who like the thrill of high stakes.
On the other hand, the slot can be played with as little as $0.20, which makes it accessible to a wide range of players.
The maximum payout in the base game is pretty generously rewarded by the pumpkin character Jack O’Lantern.
It pays 3,000 times your bet for five matching symbols, while the Skull pays 1,000, which is also a decent amount for a main game symbol.
With guaranteed multipliers and locked Wild during the Free Games, we expect Halloween Fortune II to pay great dividends.
Halloween Fortune was one of our favourite slots and we expect its sequel to be equally fun and exciting. Judging by the visuals and the soundtrack, all the necessary ingredients are there. Still the sequel gives an impression of being a bit more volatile than the original slot.
This might not appeal to all players, but we must be honest and say that Playtech has made the Free Games feature worth the wait, with stacked Wild and up to 6x multipliers.
