Halloween Fortune II Slot Review
Just in time for Halloween 2016 Playtech have released Halloween Fortune II, a sequel to as you may expect Halloween Fortune. This follow up slot features three witches who don’t look like they’ve been dragged away from toiling and troubling in Macbeth. If anything they look like Little Mix if Little Mix was a group of three and Shouting Out To Their Ex at a Halloween party. We suspect ugly witches don’t make for good game play.
How To Play Halloween Fortune II
Halloween Fortune II is a 25 payline slot with 5 reels. You can play from between 1p to £4 a line (minimum cost 25p, maximum cost £100). Players can choose to auto-spin from 10 plays although a pointless turbo feature has now been removed. Halloween Fortune II is a very colourful slot with the aforementioned three witches and a bunch of on theme symbols such as pumpkins, black cats, crows and vials of poison. The game is accompanied by music which wouldn’t be out of place with Harry Potter!
Wilds & Scatters
Surprisingly the witches aren’t the high paying symbols on this slot. That honour falls to the skull candle holder (x1000 for five of a kind), black cat (x600) and crow (x400). The Wild Pumpkin will pay out a huge x3000 if you get five of a kind. The witches are medium paying symbols (x200, x150 and x100 respectively for red, blue and green) whilst low paying icons are made up potion vials. At least there aren’t any playing cards which is a nice change.
Don’t expect too much from the game in terms of bonus features. The only one is a free spins round which activates when three or more Halloween Fortune II symbols appear on the reels. The free spin involves a multiplier that increases by 1 every two spins. This means you could be up to x10 your win by the end of the round plus there’s locked wilds on the centre reel if the Pumpkin Wild appears in that position.
The Spin On Halloween II
For a Halloween slot though this slot doesn’t have any real scare factor, which some players may actually prefer. It’s very much Halloween light! That said it isn’t a bad slot but then neither is it something we’d call standout or memorable. After a few spins and quite a lack of wins we quickly got bored of the niceness involved. We can see why Playtech like to roll this slot out around October but for the rest of the year it’s best left largely forgotten. The theoretical percentage return to player (RTP) is 94.99%.
