5 Frightfully Good New Slot Games For October 2018October 12th, 2018
It’s that time of the year again; the weather is getting colder, the ghouls come out to play, and the slot providers give us brand new Halloween slots.
With only a few weeks to go until Halloween, you know that all the casino software providers have been doing an arms race to bring out the very best Horror slot games of 2018.
These are games out in October – so old classics such as Microgaming’s Immortal Romance or NetEnt’s Zombie slots are out.
Of course, these new online slots need to do more than provide some chills, they also need to give you plenty of thrills as you spin 5 reels full of monsters and ghosts.
The 5 best new horror slots for Halloween 2018
And when we say ‘horror’ we mean ‘horror’. NetEnt’s Coins of Egypt slot doesn’t count because it’s Egyptian and you could, maybe, imagine that there’s a mummy in there somewhere.
Equally, when we say ‘new’ it means out within a month of Halloween. After all, we are celebrating the game studios who are looking honour the 31st of October 2018.
Otherwise, we could easily have put down the Halloween slot that came out last October or even the chilling Tut’s Twister by Yggdrasil that came out in June.
But no. New means new. If they didn’t come out in the last month, it doesn’t count.
Finally, we probably don’t need to mention that when we say best, we don’t just mean best looking. They have to have worthy game mechanics that are worth placing real money bets.
The Sexy Tales of Darkness Lunar Eclipse slot
There are three Tales of Darkness slot machines by Novomatic Gaming, but the Lunar Eclipse game is the one you’ll find easier at mobile and tablet casinos.
Set over 6 reels and with 10 paylines, this Tale Of Darkness Lunar Eclipse celebrates the beautiful Vampire Queen by making her both the high paying symbol and the wild.
But it’s her free spins that will catch your eye, as these turn into a pay both way reel slot machine and give you mega expanding symbols that can cover all 6 reels.
As with any of the Novomatic games, don’t underestimate this dark beauty, but with a minimum bet of 0.10 a spin up to a maximum of 50, almost anything is possible.
The Wolf Hunters slot is a slow burner but with big rewards
We’ve actually written a fair amount about this Yggdrasil slot game a few weeks ago when it came out, but it’s worthy enough to make it on the list.
This is not the kind of game you pick up on the way to work for a quick 5 minutes casino play, or even for beginners.
Instead, you need a little patience to hunt down the wins and the rewards that build up each time you catch the scatter and wild symbols.
With unique mechanics, and a spooky gothic Van Helsing background, you’ll be transported to a much darker and far wilder time.
If you want to read about all the features of Wolf Hunters take your time, but with 20 paylines and a minimum bet of 0.10, this is one you can try as you play at one of our recommended Yggdrasil casinos.
Who’s the prey or predator? Find out in the Wicked Tales Dark Red slot
Werewolves make for popular slot themes this year as 3 of our 5 top Halloween 2018 slots are all about the lycanthropes in our lives; in this case, the re-telling of the classic Little Red Riding Hood.
Only this time she’s all grown up and she’s heading to the cabin in the woods for a very different kind of wolf encounter, as this animal is hungry for more than just flesh.
The big draw of this 25 payline slot machine is the wandering reels – ie. three of the reels are 4 symbols high and they move around. Within them holds massive 4×3 symbols that can create some blazing wins.
Add some instant cash bonuses and free spins, and this is a very fun take on a familiar theme created by Triple Edge Studios, and found at Microgaming casinos online.
The surprising Night of The Werewolf slot by Merkur Gaming
Why surprising? Because Merkur games payout beautifully, but rarely have a theme worthy of being in the top 5 of anything. It’s like they have a group of old monkeys working in their design team.
That said, this time it kinda works, because this is an old-timey slot set back in the Victorian age where the wolfman felt as true as Jack the Ripper or Frankenstein.
So the slightly old-fashioned feel of this Night of the Werewolf 5 reel 5 payline slot brings you back to a simple era where all you need is a wild, a scatter and some free spins.
But not just any free spins bonus. You can pick one symbol to pay like a scatter and expand on the reels – not unlike the Novomatic Book of Ra slot, but here you get to pick the symbols, making for some very profitable bonus spins.
The Upcoming Halloween Jack by NetEnt
Technically, we are cheating because the Halloween Jack slot isn’t due out until the 24th of October.
But you know what? We know it’s going to be awesome because it’s actually a copy of the far more famous Jack and the Beanstalk game by NetEntertainment.
But just look at that theme! Just the right kind of scary and creepy, without alienating anyone who isn’t a big fan of true Horror video slots.
And Jack and the Beanstalk is probably still one of our favourite games of all time, so giving us a new creepy theme is only going to get our blessing.
If it’s not the 24th of October 2018 yet and you are reading this then go climb that beanstalk. You won’t regret it.
Then come back to your favourite NetEnt phone casinos and play this new version with 20 paylines and walking wilds that will chill you to the bones.
In a good ‘oh my god, I’m not going to sleep for a thousand days’ casino chill. It’s a thing. Probably.
