Just in time for Halloween, the world’s leading online casino game provider and software developer, Microgaming, has unleashed the new and terrifyingly good ‘Halloween’ online slots.
After years of never-dying and terrifying teenagers, iconic Hollywood cult figure and psychopath, Michael Myers is back on screen in Microgaming’s hit new online slot, ‘Halloween’.
This time he returns take on the online casino world. Halloween is about fun and candy. Bring your money. Bring your candy. Your Halloween gaming may never be the same again.
Debuting in the fall of 1978, John Carpenter’s “Halloween’ is one of the most iconic movies in cinematic history. ‘Halloween’ is arguably the most influential fright film ever made. Perhaps matched only by ‘Psycho’ and ‘Night of the Living Dead’ as horror movies that changed the genre forever, ‘Halloween’ singlehandedly created the slasher film. Without it, Freddie Krueger and the most of Hollywood’s 1980’s teen horror flicks would never have been made. As for 1996’s ‘Scream, without Carpenter’s spine-chilling classic, no one would ever have been picking up that call.
Halloween Hits Online Casinos Sooner than Expected
Whilst finalisation of the licensing rights between Hollywood and Microgaming took place only this July, Microgaming wasted no time and Halloween was released on September 21 to all Microgaming Online Casinos worldwide (Spin Palace, Ruby Fortune, Betway, Royal Vegas and Jackpot City amongst others).
‘Halloween’ features a creepy, dark and suspenseful atmosphere, and the game’s developers have great job of transferring that spooky horror movie atmosphere onto the game screen.
Suspense is terrifying built-in to the game with four of the main characters from the movie; Annie, Loomis, Laurie and Lynda still trying (all these years later) to avoid the clutches of Michael Myers, the ’psychopath who simply refuses to die’.
The soundtrack is downright spooky and features all the haunting piano tunes from the movie. Every spin is spine-chillingly musically accompanied as you continue to play, waiting and wondering when exactly the Boogeyman will strike.
Halloween rewards players with its superb play action. Its visuals run smoothly, elegantly and stylishly without jerking or loading issues. Of course. Its Microgaming. It just works!
