All of you who enjoyed playing Halloween Fortune will be pleased to know that Playtech is about to release a sequel of this popular slot called Halloween Fortune II.
The slot may appear similar to the old version, but only at first glance, because the good people of Playtech made much improvement regarding the playability, graphics and soundtrack.
The reels are set deep into the forest and once again you will need to get on witches’ good side if you plan to land some lucrative payouts, or trigger the special feature. Unlike the first game that offered 20 adjustable paylines, the 2016 release will offer 25 fixed paylines and a standard 3×5 grid.
Playtech is one of the largest online gaming software supplier in the world. The company from Isle of Man has been around since 1999, providing top-notch software solutions for online casinos all around the globe.
Some of the reasons their slots are so popular are the high-quality graphics and entertaining and rewarding additional features. A Night Out, X-Men, and Lotto Madness are Playtech’s most popular slots currently.
How To Play It
Even though the slot is yet to be released, we do have some information regarding the upcoming Playtech product, which will allow us to compare it to the previous version. Like we said, instead of 20 adjustable paylines, the 2016 release will offer 25 fixed paylines.
Coin denomination will probably be between $0.01 and $10, so the lowest bet will be $0.25, while the maximum bet should go up to $250. There are also some alterations in the menu bar. It seems that the metal pot used for Bet max in the previous version is now used for Autoplay.
The Spin and the Info buttons remained the same, while the Turbo mode is an addition. The slot will probably pay left to right, starting from the leftmost reel.
The older version of the slot really looked spooky, but Playtech decided to polish things up a bit with Halloween Fortune II. Even though the reels are set deep into the forest, it is more pleasant to the eye, due to some bright and colourful graphics.
The protagonists remained the same, but do look somewhat prettier than they used to. So expect to meet three witches, the Red, the Blue and the Green one, as they will land in stacks.
You will definitely notice all sorts of potions that will appear on the reels, alongside ravens, black cats and skulls used as candlesticks. Halloween Pumpkin is used as a Wild, while Halloween Fortune II logo is the Scatter.
As far as we managed to find out until now, the best thing about this slot is the Free Spins feature triggered by three Logo Scatters. The witches will award you with 10 freebies and some increasing multipliers.
Spinners will start with a 2x multiplier during the first two free spins, 3x multiplier for the second two freebies, 4x multiplier for the fifth and the sixth spin, 5x multiplier is triggered after the seventh freebie, while the last two free spins carry a 6x multiplier.
During each and every freebie, the Halloween Pumpkin Wild is locked on the central position of the third reel, looking at other symbols that land on the reels, trying to make winning combinations. If we add the fact that Witches symbols are two cells high, gamers could expect some lucrative payouts during the Bonus round.
Once again the Halloween Pumpkin Wild is the highest paying symbol in the 2016 release. In Halloween Fortune, the Wild offered 10,000 coins for five of a kind, but in the upcoming release it will offer only 3,000 as the maximum payout. But be aware that the betting range is much higher now, so you might win $30,000 for the maximum combo.
Since All Hallows’ Eve is set for 31st of October, we do expect that will be the release date of Halloween Fortune II. Even though the latest version does not seem as spooky as its predecessor due to some bright and colourful graphics, the offered maximum payout will definitely make you shiver.
The impression is that the 2016 release is slightly better than the first version when talking about volatility, while the Free Spins feature could reward you with some sweet payouts, so you won’t even have to go trick-or-treating. Once again, concentrate on landing lots of witches and try to get on their good side for bigger payouts.
