Helloween online slot (Play’n GO): It’s another hard rock slot combined with a Halloween theme

We are approaching the Halloween weekend, so it’s time for some Halloween-themed slots. Every year, we welcome some five Halloween slots and Play’n GO usually joins the pack.

Play’n GO has fooled us a bit, though, as this slot is built around a German heavy metal band called Helloween (with an “e” and not an “a”).

But actually, Play’n GO kills two birds with one stone. It’s another hard rocker slot like we’re used to seeing (such as Testament, Annihilator, Twisted Sister and Saxon). At the same time, the slot has, what else could it be, the Halloween theme.

The maximum win on Helloween is 5,000x the total stake

That’s the default max win of Play’n GO slots nowadays.


Software: Play’n GO

Number of paylines: 5 reels and 3 rows, 10 fixed paylines

RTP and variance: 96.2%, Medium variance

Maximum win: 5,000 x the bet or  $€0.5 million

Betting range: $€0.10 – $€100

Bonus features: Seven types of free spins, Helloween Multiplier

Casino Hipster verdict: Captivating and compelling, but lacks the thrill


 

Helloween: Gameplay and Features

It’s a slot with a 5×3 setup, and there are 10 fixed paylines.

The 4 highest paying symbols are Halloween symbols, including four Creeps, a Sorcerer with a glass sphere, a pair of Hands and a Golden Ring with a Pumpkin face.

The 6 lower paying symbols are the 9, 10, J, Q, K and A.

The symbols you want to see are the Pumpkin symbols. These act as Wild and Scatter symbols.

The Keeper of the Seven Keys Feature Wheel

As soon as you spin Scatters on reels 1, 3 or 5, you activate The Keeper of the Seven Keys Feature Wheel.

This wheel stops at one of the seven (!) bonus features.

The Seven Bonus Features

All features (except for the Helloween Free Spins) get you 5 free spins.

The features are:

  • I’m Alive: here you get expanding Wilds, which can cover an entire reel
  • Eagle Fly Free: a feature with flying wilds
  • Future World: now you get stacked wilds
  • Stein: one of the lower symbols gets an upgrade and become wild symbols
  • March of Time: here you get “walking” wilds that go from right to left
  • I Want Out: wilds transform symbols into 2×2 symbols
  • Helloween Free Spins: in this feature, you get 7 free spins. Spin 3 more scatters to trigger the Feature Wheel once again.

The Helloween Multiplier at the end decides whether you win big or not.

Save the best for last. That certainly applies to Helloween.

In the end, you get to know whether your free spin win is multiplied by x2, x3, x5 or x10.

For example, a 50x win can become a 500x win! A world of difference. We also saw this powerful feature on Octopus Treasure.

Payout percentage (RTP)

Helloween’s RTP is 96.2%, which is about the average. It’s okay, but obviously, it’s not in our top 25 best-paying slots.

Unfortunately, even the most trustworthy online casinos offer this game at significantly lower percentages. It’s best to check the game rules before you play.

Helloween slot: the variance is medium

Play’n GO gives a score of 6 out of 10 for the variance, so we are talking about a medium variance slot.

Most top wins will be in the 250x to 500x range. If you land a 1,000x win, it’s miraculous! Unless you decide to spin one million times.

Other Play’n GO slots with similar volatility are Win A Beest and Blinged.

Pros

Cons

So, who’ll like the slot? And who won’t?

This slot is for players who love hard rock music and Halloween. The slot offers a lot of gaming fun, and the risk is limited. Impatient players will get annoyed. Players who chase massive wins need to get their Halloween fix elsewhere.
