An eerie creation from Microgaming, Halloweenies combines all of the treats and tricks of Halloween in a bright aesthetic, with ghouls, sweets and creepy sounds to get you prepared for Halloween regardless of the time of year. You can play this pokie yourself on Jackpot City.
Like a cheap Halloween costume, this pokie might look the part on the outside, but look a little harder and it’s less impressive. The graphics are not exactly polished and there are no animations and no big graphical bonus rounds either. There are also no symbols paying above 1,000x, with the highest being the dog, which pays 900x. That is, if you exclude the wild, which pays an impressive 13,000x if you land five of them and goes down in tenths below this (1,300x for 4, 130x for 3 and 13x for 2).
You can’t pay per line on this pokie, but the minimum bet does work out at $0.01 per line, which means the minimum stake per spin is $0.20.
There are a couple of bonus rounds on Halloweenies, both of which will also return instant wins as soon as the round is triggered, depending on how many symbols you get to unlock them. The first of these rounds is the Pumpkin bonus, which is a simple “choose me” pokie and the main round is the Bunny Feature, which is a free spins round when all wins are tripled.
This is a decent pokie, but one with many flaws. The wild pays a lot, but the other symbols could do with being a little more generous. The bonus rounds are worthwhile, especially the free spins round, and the graphics are okay. Overall, this is a good pokie, but don’t expect it to be groundbreaking.
