Most of you gamers will probably remember the original Halloween Fortune title, but Playtech have decided to refurbish their previous version and award us with another Halloween trick and treat just in time. A sequel to the original title is a well-designed game with impressive animated graphics and a fairly simple gameplay which benefits from the Free Spins feature and an increasing multiplier rounded off with a sticky Wild in the middle of your reels.
Despite the fairly straightforward playing pattern Halloween Fortune II is a highly rewarding game you are bound to enjoy playing. Have a try and see for yourselves, but in the meantime read our own impressions we hope will help you reach a final verdict on this Halloween-themed title.
What We Love
It is that time of the year and Playtech’s Halloween Fortune II is a timely release that will prolong and extend the holiday feeling for you.
On the first glance this game appears spooky and creepy, but it is much more than that. You have three differently-clad attractive withes and cartoon-like symbols which include all of the suitable symbols such as a cat, a raven and a candle on top of a skull becoming animated once a part of a winning combination.
Witches are presented as two-tile symbols occupying two places instead on one and will be counted as part of the winning combination even when only a part of them appears on the reels, which is a nice little touch.
We love it that albeit a fairly simple game, Halloween Fortune II is here to bring fortunes to players with game’s Pumpkin Wild offering no less than 3,000x your line bet for five of a kind, which is quite a base-game win.
There is plenty to come during Free Spins which are activated once three Scatters are lined up anywhere on the reels. You will get 10 free spins and an increasing multiplier which starts at 2x and moves up by 1 after every two spins.
That is not all as you will be treated with a locked Wild in the middle of the reels, making your winning potential reach ceiling during the bonus round.
From what we’ve seen during our spins, Halloween Fortune II’s rewards come quite frequently and you will not be forced to wait too long for a win. No dead spins is what all gamers love, right?
What We Do Not Like
A limiting bet range is what worries us the most in this wonderfully rewarding game. Halloween Fortune II is available at $0.25 which offers great access for all sorts of players starting from beginners and casual gamers. However, for all of them hoping to land serious wins without investing too much, the fact Halloween Fortune II’s top stake rests at $250 can be a bit deterring.
Halloween Fortune II features frequent wins, but we were force to wait a bit longer than what we would have liked for that Free Spins mode to be activated. The fact is can’t be re-triggered has had a bit of a discouraging effect on us despite the fact ten free spins are available with multipliers and locked Wild.
Playtech should be praised for their decision to top up our Halloween with such a great game which is a sequel to their original title.
They have decided to remain as true to the original as possible, which is probably the reason we got such a straightforward (base) game. Still, it did little to put us off from this wonderful slot we are sure to enjoy even when all the Halloween feeling drains out.
