Among pumpkin lanterns and withered trees, the Pumpkin Biker reveals the path to a Lucky Halloween on the slot from Red Tiger Gaming. Features and bonuses are never far away when he appears on his motorbike, sometimes removing his head and tossing it into the reels to bring extra luck and fortune. Three bonus symbols lead you on a quest to the magical tower where huge prizes of up to 800 times your bet await by the light of the full moon.
Lucky Halloween is a video slot with five reels, three rows and 20 fixed pay lines. Wins are awarded for two to five matching symbols on a line from left to right only. Get into the mood for the spooky season on desktop or mobile from 0.10 to 100 credits per spin. The game has high volatility (4.5/5) with an RTP of 94.98%, which is slightly below the industry average.
A country scene at night is opening up when you load the game with a pumpkin tree on the right lighting up during one of the random features. The elegant game window is topped with smiling pumpkins and populated by Halloween-themed symbols. The Pumpkin Biker will randomly appear from the left by first teasing with his pumpkin head. A haunting soundtrack completes a stunning slot masterpiece.
Card royals from 10 through to A are at the low end of the paytable, awarding 1x to 4x your bet for a single five of a kind. They are followed by bat-shaped cupcakes, potion vials, a bandaged cat, witch hats and the slot logo with the motorbike, with the latter appearing stacked at all times. Hit five on a line to win 5x to 16x your stake.
A smiling lit pumpkin is the wild symbol, substituting for all regular pay symbols and awarding 20x your stake when five fall in line. It also appears stacked in the base game and free spins. A golden cauldron filled with coloured marbles is the scatter while a castle tower with a full moon background acts as the bonus symbol.
Lucky Halloween Slot Features
Most of the action on the reels hinges on the hilarious Pumpkin Biker. He will make random appearances from the left although sometimes he will only tease you and ride off into the distance with a sinister laugh. However, when he rides onto the screen he will award one of four random features.
- Random Wilds: The biker will remove his pumpkin head as he rides onto the screen and throws it onto the reels to reveal up to six random wilds.
- Special Reels: The biker rides across the reels and removes all the low-value card royals for the current spins, which leaves only premiums on the reels for a chance to hit bigger wins.
- Mega Wild: The biker pulls a 3×3 sized wild symbol onto the reels and places it in a random position
- Pumpkin Tree Multiplier: The magical tree will light up and award a win multiplier of up to x20 for the current spin.
Hitting three or more bonus symbols anywhere on the reels will trigger the Full Moon Bonus Game. A trail with progressive bet multipliers will open up and your aim is to progress to the top and collect the main prize of 800x your total bet. Only the final multiplier reached on the trail will be awarded as a coin win.
Three or more cauldron scatters will trigger the Free Spins feature. You will be offered a choice of three cauldrons, each hiding a random number of 6 to 20 free spins. Make one pick to unveil the number of free spins for your round. The scenery will come alive during the feature and the Pumpkin Biker will appear more often to award one of the four random features or extra free spins. Never mind though, he can still only tease you and ride off with his sinister laugh.
Lucky Halloween is a feature-rich game that is never boring even when the rider is just flunking his appearance. His laugh is so authentic that it might haunt you though in your next nightmare. Especially the Full Moon Bonus Game seemed rather hard to trigger but it is mostly worth the wait as we never walked away with less than 50x our bet.
Theoretically, the game can pay up to 8,000 times your bet which would be a full screen of wild symbols with an x20 multiplier from the Pumpkin Tree feature. But we better leave that as theoretical since the chances are microscopically small for such a hit. However, the game is good for regular mega wins in the 100x to 500x bet range.
