House Of Doom
Feeling brave? Nerves under control? Then it’s time to take a visit to the House Of Doom. An eerie themed, spooky slot from Play’n GO. The game offers expanding wilds, free spins which can retrigger indefinitely and a skulled-filled pick-and-click bonus round, where plays can also trigger the free spins without the need for a single scatter.
House Of Doom is a video slot with five reels, three rows and 10 fixed pay lines. Bet sizes from 0.10 to 100 credits will please all types of players. A modest RTP of 96.11% will assist you in your adventures through the doomed house. Despite the fear factor, the game falls generally into the medium volatility category.
Graphics and Visuals
The spooky House of Doom mansion is the backdrop to a harrowing-looking game window with skulls on every corner and chains separating the reels. The entire colour palette is kept in dark tones except for the bonus symbols which are burning skulls. A head-banging rock tune with hair-raising guitar riffs on winning spins, occasional lightning strikes and a repeated distant chime of a church bell complete the spooky atmosphere of this slot. On entering the free spins round, the lyrics from ‘Welcome to the House of Doom’ can be heard in a sinister and provocative tone.
As seen on many other slots, House of Doom has the usual card symbols 10, J, O, K and A at the low end, which will return 7.5x to 10x your stake for a five of a kind. The premium symbols are in ascending order a pentagram, a barb-wired crucifix, a red rose and a ram skull, with pays for a five of a kind increasing to 35 to 70 times the stake. The Seer is the wild and top paying symbol with 100 times the stake when five all in line. Scatters are the slot logo, appearing on reel one, three and five only. The Skull of Abyss symbols are the bonus symbols, which are present on the middle reels only.
The Random Wild Reel
There is no shortage of features on this slot. In the base game, one random reel is highlighted on every spin. Should a wild Seer appear anywhere on the highlighted reel, it will expand to cover the entire reel, providing more potential to hit a winning combination. The same mechanic is active in the free spins but with two to five reels being highlighted on every spin.
Skulls Of Abyss Bonus Game
Landing Skulls of Abyss symbols on the three middle reels will trigger the pick-and-click bonus round. A second screen with 16 skulls appears, where players can make unlimited picks until they reveal a 5x or 20x bet multiplier or a House Of Doom scatter. All other skulls contain bet multipliers of 1x, 2x and 3x. All picked coin wins are added at the end of the round while the House of Doom scatters will award the free spins feature.
The Doom Spins Feature
House Of Doom scatters on reels one, three and five or a pick in the bonus game will award an initial 10 free spins. During the feature, the scatters serve as an additional wild symbol plus they will award one additional free spins for each scatter, if at least one is stopping on a highlighted reel.
The kicker in the free spins though are the highlighted reels. Contrary to the base game you will see two to five reels being randomly highlighted on every free spin. Having a Seer or a scatter land on a highlighted reel will expand the symbol to transform the entire reel into a wild symbol. Expanded scatters will also award three extra free spins. Having five reels highlighted and five scatter or Seers symbols will lead to a full screen of wild symbols, paying the maximum win in a single spin of 1,000 time your bet.
Deep breath and enter the House Of Doom or too scared and run a mile? I’d recommend casting those fears aside and to be a little braver. The Play’n GO game offers entertaining gameplay, regular bonuses and on those luckier days, you could leave the house with not just a phobia overcome but clutching a huge reward for your bravery.
