Theme and basic information
The Horror house slot was created by Booming Gaming provider in October of 2020. So, it is a new horror-themed slot with quite an impressive animation and terrifying sound effects. What advantages does this slot have? It has up to 3125 ways to win and offers an opportunity to get up to 4800x.
And, honestly speaking, it is not the best slot I’ve ever seen, but, I suppose, the creators didn’t have such a goal since this slot has a topic of horror and it was released in October right before Halloween. As a result, you will be satisfied with playing in this game if you love themed slots and maybe you are even a fan of Halloween.
The theme, as I’ve said, is horror, and I’d say that it's a mix of different horrific heroes gathered in one place which is a boarded-up house. Among other heroes, you will see the Chucky Doll, Count Dracula and Frankenstein’s monster.
The plot of the slot is pretty predictable, the players have to be terrified by the monsters and frightening creatures that appear on the screen.
This slot has 5 reels, 5 rows and up to 3125 ways to win, though it is said in the rules that there are no paylines in the game.
I have to mention that it has an unusual interface with only 13 symbols open. The other symbols are closed and can be activated just after the appearance of the winning combination on the screen. In this case, two closed symbols will be opened. I will consider this feature in more detail further in the article.
The winning combinations pay from left to right.
With regards to the betting mechanics, you can set only the bet size which varies from 0.10 to 100 euros. Keep in mind that the bet sizing can differ from those I’ve described depending on a particular slot’s rules and politics.
As for slot’s symbols, they are not described in the rules. But all of them you are able to see on the game screen. The following symbols are represented in this slot: the Chucky Doll, black cats, black Widow spiders, Count Dracula, Frankenstein’s monster and a Werewolf, besides of these symbols you will see the royal cards like Ace, King, Queen, Jack and 10.
There are 12 symbols in general in the slot including the Wild symbol that looks like a bat that is upside down.
The paytable is not represented in the rules of the game. Due to this fact, I can’t say which symbol is the highest paying symbol. Though, it is obvious that the symbols with heroes of horrors pay more than the royals. So, the lowest paying symbols are royals like Jack and 10.
The highest win per line isn’t claimed as well, but it is said that the maximum possible win equals to 4,800x your bet which means that the highest win per line is less than this amount of money.
The Wild symbol that, I’ve already said, has a picture of a bat on it, appears exclusively on reels 2,3,4 and 5 in the base game and in Free spins. It’s also known that Wild substitutes for all other symbols.
There is no Scatter symbol at all in the slot Horror House which is a very unusual decision made by the slot’s creators.
Slot Bonus Features
You can get some, I’d say, different types of Free spins in this slot. And as for me, it is the most exciting feature of the gameplay. So, you can get a Re-Spin if any winning combination appears on the reels during the main game. You are able to get up to a maximum of five Re-Spins. The Re-Spins feature I’m going to elaborate on below, in the Special features section.
With regards to Free spins, a winning combination after the fifth re-spin activates 8 free spins. Remember that Free spins are played with the same bet step of the re-spin which triggers the Free spins. And Free spins can not be retriggered.
All additional information about Free spins you will find in the game rules section.
There is no special bonus game in the Horror House slot.
In my opinion, the Re-spins and their, so to speak, hierarchy is the only special feature of this slot. Every time the new Re-Spin is activated, the number of ways to win increases by 2 additional symbol positions.
So, here I’m going to tell you how many ways to win will be available during different types of spins:
during an initial spin, 45 ways to win are available
during the first Re-Spin, 135 ways to win are available
during the second Re-Spin, 405 ways to win are available
during the third Re-Spin, 675 ways to win are available
during the fourth Re-Spin, 1125 ways to win are available
during the fifth Re-Spin, 1875 ways to win are available
during Free spins, all 3125 ways to win are available
It is also said in the rules that all re-spins will be played with the same bet step which was selected before the first re-spin was triggered. And when a re-spin doesn’t award a win, the re-spins are over and the number of ways (the grid) changes back to the initial amount.
The full information about Re-spins is given in the rules of the slot.
RTP and volatility
RTP of Horror House slot is 96,04% which is a medium level that can be considered as a good coefficient for the safe gameplay experience.
The volatility is high and you won’t get a big win very often, though the hit frequency is 28.42% which means you will win every third spin on average (in the vast majority of cases, you will get small wins).
Graphics and sound
The graphics of the Horror house slot is not very impressive. In the latest slots creators usually use more sophisticated technologies and animations. Nonetheless, it has its own charm because of its horror/Halloween topic with all these terrifying pictures and animation.
As for sound effects, they are also not as cool as they could be. Though, they correspond to the topic and have a horrific effect. Honestly, they were too annoying for me, but both sound and sound effects can be turned off at any time during the gameplay.
The game doesn’t have a specific intro.
Here, I will list all the pros and cons of the Horror House slot for you.
The pros of this slot are the following:
quite a good animation
html5 is supported
The cons of the slot are the following:
the average quality of sound
an often used theme of the slot
not so big possible winning
no free spins multiplier
Summing up, this slot doesn’t have huge possible wins or mind-blowing animation. Nevertheless, the Horror House slot is a good choice for those of you who love slots with horror themes and yearly enjoy them in anticipation of Halloween.
