For a retro slot machine experience that comes at you like a bat out of hell, try taking Playtech’s three-reel, five-payline game Haunted House for spin. A no frills, all chills gaming experience, Haunted House is a simple enough game to be contained on one screen, with a payable to the right of the reels revealing exactly what’s at stake as you navigate your way around Dracula’s castle. Available to play from as little as £0.01, perhaps the one thing you won’t have to be afraid of while playing Haunted House is going broke, as the game features a regular jackpot of 1,800x your bet for hanging garlic icons across the slot’s fifth payline.
Despite its title, Haunted House is mostly focused on Count Dracula’s castle, with the ominous structure silhouetted in the background alongside a full moon, vampire bats and the occasional fly-by witch on a broomstick. The reels themselves contain all manner of macabre symbols ranging from garlic bulbs to coffins and crosses, with a selection of spooky sound effect helping enhance the spooky setting as players spin their way to wins that could easily wake the dead.
As a classic slot machine Haunted House doesn’t feature any unique bonus features, but players can benefit from the enhanced payouts offered by the garlic bulb icon. For starters, this symbol pays a prize of 5x your stake even when only one appears on a valid payline, with two paying 25x and three-of-a-kind paying at least 1,000x. The top award of 1,800x, meanwhile, can only be found when the fifth and final payline is activated – a diagonal line running from the bottom left to the top right.
In terms of its user interface, Haunted House is certainly nothing for players to dread as the game features an incredibly simple selection of options. Plus and minus arrows help you control your bet per line amount from £0.01-£25.00, while the “bet one” button will enable and disable paylines up to a maximum of five. Combined, this makes the game playable for between £0.01 and £125.00 per spin, but the top prize payouts are only available when all five lines are active.
For a retro gaming experience that features way more bite than other classic slot machines, look no further than Haunted House. The game’s generous base game payouts ensure a steady return on investment no matter what stakes you choose to play at, but the real rewards are reserved for those who are brave enough to enter Dracula’s castle with all five paylines enabled.
