Despite being shorter than Richard Hammond, British summers are notoriously glorious. Now that our days of swimming in public fountains and baring our extraordinarily pale body parts are just about over, it’s easy to get into the doldrums.
All cheer is not to be lost, however, as we have an adopted American holiday to look forward to. Halloween tends to be the time of year where us Brits lose our heads in a manner that would impress even a certain headless horseman.
We can give ourselves a little bit of leeway with how popular Halloween is in the UK. We have a dreary winter to prepare for and one last razzle certainly doesn’t hurt the spirits (pun intended).
Besides, what’s not to love about dressing up as your favourite character and having an excuse to apply makeup in raccoon-like fashion? Absolutely nothing, we say! Halloween this year may be a little different, but that doesn’t mean you can’t pull out your lucky pants and enjoy it!
Here are some of the most ghoulish Halloween-themed slots to get you in character for the scariest time of year.
We’ve seen some bikers driving like they have pumpkins for heads, but in this video slot from Red Tiger it’s an actual reality. Our main pumpkin-headed man is the star of this Halloween-themed slot machine, where you’ll find a heap of great bonuses.
Expect 5-reels, 3-rows and some smashing graphics and creepy sounds. Look out for the pumpkin head to the left of your screen as he pops up and awards multiple features like a multiplier wild trail, an impressive 3x3 wild, and access to both of the best bonuses. We’re hoping the game lives up to its name and you have a Lucky Halloween with the free-spins round or the castle bonus, which will award you a scarily high 800x your initial stake.
This 3 reel, 9 line classic mini-slot has a creepy Halloween night theme with scary protagonists to bring all sorts of ghoulish things to life. If you want to get shivers from head to toe, get ready to play Haunted Hallows in a sinister mansion deep in the woods, on a dark night with a full moon in the background, and perhaps a werewolf howling in the distance!
Nine fixed paylines and an Autoplay feature makes this slot a popular one. That’s not to mention the prize you’ll win when you match any 3 of the main symbols. These include all kinds of Halloween-appropriate images, including Jack o’ Lanterns, a baby Frankenstein’s monster, a one-eyed skull with a candle stuck in the other eye, a cute but fierce-looking black cat, a vampire ghost, a red poison potion in a jar, and a witch.
We’re always partial to our blood-sucking brethren—no, not you mosquitoes—we’re obviously talking about our well-dressed Transylvanian friends who are even battier than your Aunt Mildred. Vampires are one of our favourite Halloween-themed dress up ideas; in fact, we believe that they should be a year-round trend. What’s not to love about fancy capes, a love of the indoors and a fear of the sun?
In this slot machine from Scientific Games, you can expect a 5-reel layout and 50 paylines, as well as a sultry female vampire to guide you. The bat symbol is the wild, which helps generate the Mighty Reels feature. This bonus can enhance the number of win lines, up to 100. The Lock It Link feature is another interesting bonus game on Vampire Desire Slot and is generated each time you land 3 or more scatters on a horizontal line.
Okay, okay, you’ve got us. This isn’t a Halloween-themed slot but it is scary! Scary fast and scary cool that is. If online slots and online bingo had a baby with the best attributes of both, Slingo bingo is what you’d end up with. The reels on this slot machine look like a bingo card and you have to cross out numbers across your lines as you go. The numbers will spin and pop up at the bottom of your screen.
Slingo bingo is one of our favourite slot machines as it gives you the best of online bingo and slots, and it also comes in a heap of different themes, so you’ll never get bored.
Slip into something comfortable (your lucky pants, perhaps), and get ready to enjoy some of the creepiest Halloween-themed slots with Lucky Pants Bingo. We have a huge range of online bingo games and slots to choose from for any occasion! Don’t just join us for the games, however, you’ll also find that we’re fond of a bit of witty bingo banter and love a good welcome bonus to boot.Lisa Stormings / 30 October 2020
