If you’re looking for a somewhat weird but entertaining slot, Halloweenies by Microgaming might be what you’re looking for. The slot revolves around Halloween candy, but it doesn’t limit itself to that. Namely, you also will encounter scary monsters and the entire slot has been fitted to the overall theme. Aesthetics aside, Halloweenies also has a bonus game and free spins!
How to play Halloweenies?
With all its functions and features, you might think that Halloweenies is difficult to play. Luckily, however, Microgaming has managed to keep it simple. The slot has a standard layout of five reels and three rows. Also, it has a wild symbol capable of substituting for any other symbol except the scatter and bonus symbol. Halloweenies does not make use of standard symbols as Microgaming, apparently, has come up with enough animations. There is no background music but it does have sound effects. What’s more, these sound effects are pretty good. During spins, you only hear the reels spinning.
Bonus game on Halloweenies
Don’t you hate bonus games in which your first pick might immediately be the collect, leaving you empty-handed? Well, don’t worry, because that won’t happen on Halloweenies. When three pumpkins land on your reels, you will enter the bonus game. On the tombstone, it says how many pumpkins you get to pick and behind each of these pumpkins, there’s a prize. The height of these prizes differs strongly, so you have to be lucky. After three pumpkins, you will be brought back to the reels and regular spins resume.
Free spins on Halloweenies
Halloweenies is equipped with free spins for which you need three rabbits. When three rabbits -scatters- land on your reels, you will go on to free spins immediately. In total, you will receive 23 free spins with a 3x multiplier. Free spins are spun on the same reels as regular spins, it’s just the sound effects that are different. That is, the reels sound different and that does make sense seeing as you can win significantly more than during regular spins. During free spins, you can also unlock the bonus game. However, the free spins multipliers do not have any effect on the bonus game. Also, during free spins, you can win additional free spins, allowing you to play for free with multipliers even longer.

You can configure the number of active pay lines at either the bottom of the slot or on the left- or right-hand side of the playing grid.
