Reels of Terror
Novomatic have created a visually attractive online slot machine that’s bursting with so many different images. The reels are set in an eerie scene, either side of the reels are trees and the sky is deep shades of blue with glittering stars and flying bats. Symbols on the reels will vanish and reappear when they are part of a winning combination – which adds an element of horror to the reels.
To keep in with the theme of the slot machine, Novomatic have designed a series of symbols that also bear the Halloween-theme, these are; card values 9, 10, J, Q, K and A, then a haunted house, a sexy witch, black cat, golden bat ring, carved pumpkin and glowing candles.
Before you can play the slot game, you need to adjust the bets to get to the value you want to stake in every spin. The menu is where you will find the betting options and settings.
You have the option to adjust your paylines to 1, 3, 7, 15 to the maximum of 25. Next, you decide how much you wish to bet per payline – the maximum will set you back 100.00 in every spin.
The paytable shows you how you can win and additional information on the various features.
Novomatic have a demo version of Pumpkin Power slot machine available, this is to allow players to get a practice of the slot machine.
The highest paying symbol on your reels is the haunted house – this will award a 40x multiplier to your stake, when you spin in 5 of a kind.
Frightfully Good Features
Wild – the sexy witch is the wild and has the power to transform herself to become any other symbol on the reels (apart from the scatter), and help the player form winning combinations. She will only make her appearance on reel 3 and when she does, she will hop on her broom and fly high up in the sky – just to point out she has produced a win on the reels.
Scatter – you will be awarded 12 free spins on the reels when you spin in three of the carved pumpkin symbols.
Bonus – land the glittering carved pumpkin on reel three, to trigger the bonus game. You will be taken to a new screen where you roll a dice, whatever the number on the dice shows, you will be given a 3, 4 or 5 of a kind value for the symbol displayed on your screen. This symbols on the screen are the symbols that make up the reels, such as the haunted house and black cat. If you throw the dice and it lands on the carved pumpkin, you will be given additional free spins up to a maximum of 5.
Gamble – whenever you spin a win in on the reels, you will be given the chance to gamble your money to go for more. Click the gamble button to the left of the reels and guess the colour suit of the next card to win.
We love how Pumpkin Power slot machine has been designed to look uncluttered – it just focuses on the reels themselves, with no betting options to toggle through on the screen.
The design is very eerie and offers plenty of chances to win, especially with its 243 ways to win in every single spin. It’s a medium variance slot machine that doesn’t require much skill at all to play, you simply decide your bet and spin those reels.
The sounds that accompany the reels spinning is brilliant. Every time you spin in a win, the reels will make a chilling sound.
When we played, we found that the vast majority of the biggest wins came within the free spins feature and it allows you to retrigger free spins to maximise your potential winnings.
