The Ghost Walks Slot Review
It has always astounded me that in movies involving hauntings, spirits and other paranormal activity, whenever it is at the height of extreme tension and obvious that there is a ghost in play, the actor will stealthily creep toward impending danger. Now, I don’t know about you, but WTF? I would turn and run out in the other direction like a bat out of hell!!! Why would any sane person want to take on the likes of a Poltergeist?
Luckily Belatra Games has put together a spooky house that isn't altogether that frightening and rather somewhat charming. This game is Casper the Friendly ghost meets Beetlejuice. The bright blue reels are beautifully offset by a dark, starry night scene. The characters instead of being scary are quite amusing but if you do have a pacemaker look out for the ghost that jumps out at you. Laptop, Tablet, Macbook and Mobile Phone all handle this spooky game well, no scary surprises in store for you.
You will have the chance to amble through the castle of horrors presented on 5 lines. There you will walk stealthily through the corridors hoping to find some wins with the 20 pay lines on offer and medium volatility.
The characters in this game are actually quite hilarious and well animated. The castle itself is dark and scary and the highest paying of the general symbols. Next are the Count and Countess of the castle who appear to be very eccentric and probably batshit crazy. Other medium symbols include the chest and skull and a gravestone. Lower paying symbols include a dopey looking Bat flying above a Candelabra and the playing cards.
The Scatter Symbol is the Ghost
The Wild is the Ghost Walks Emblem.
The controls panel is typical of Belatra games. Neat and easy to use. On the bottom, you can access the paytable with the 3 lines to the left. Also on the bottom line are Lines, Credits, Bet Total Bet, Win, Max Bet, Play, and Autoplay.
In this spooky slot, the ghost is, in fact, your friend. So, just for this one time, run toward the paranormal activity. 3 or more scatter symbols trigger the free spin round. You will see additional Wild Symbols added to the reels during this round, and due to the nature of the spins you can receive up to a whopping 100 free spins.
The Gamble in this slot is 2 Card Games of Risk. The first is when you have the opportunity to double your money by choosing a card that is higher than the dealers, it doubles your money. This gamble can be played up to 5 times or up to 100 000. If you get lower than the dealer, you lose.
The other Gamble you is, you can either double or quadruple your cash. If you guess the correct suit of the card to be turned, your money is doubled. If you go so far as to guess the suit, your money is quadrupled.
The maximum win for this slot is 2000 coins.
The Ghost Walks was a very entertaining game to play. The characters and their home were delightfully spooky, and the sudden appearance of the ghost that screeched undoubtedly kept me alert. The wins were excellent and the added features of the two card games made it more complicated and exciting.
I recommend this cartoon version of Poltergeist to all those not afraid of the dark, but even if you are the crazy wilds during the free spin round certainly will add light to your life. Experienced and less experienced gamblers will enjoy this Belatra slot equally. A thrilling experience.
