Slot Theme

Halloween Fortune II is out to bewitch you with the help of three charming ladies which you would have met already if you have tried the original slot. While adequately spooky music is playing in the background, witches are brewing magic concoctions in their secret forest lair. Playtech’s 5-reel and 25-payline video slot, launched for this year’s Halloween season, delivers upgraded visuals and several familiar symbols. If you allow the girls to put a spell on you, reels might go magic and fill your pockets with thousands of coins.

Game Symbols

All game symbols are appropriate to the theme, with no playing cards icons in sight. Reels will deliver a Skull holding a burning candle, Black Cat, Raven, the 3 Witches themselves and, finally, a pink, green and violet potion bottles. Alluring Witches will always appear stacked to occupy 2 positions instead of one. Wild Pumpkin might look scary but will stand in for any other symbol except Scatter and deliver generous wins on its own. It appears often enough to help you land decent amounts even before you trigger the special feature.

Paylines

Gameplay

Sequel to the popular original comes with 5 additional paylines so that you will now be playing with 25. Picking your bet from a range of $0.01 to $10 per line allows you a maximum stake of $250. Winning combos are formed by matching symbols landing consecutively on a payline, left to right.
Selecting Turbo mode will make the reels spin faster but you might lose some animations and sounds on the way. Autoplay function is there for the lazier of us and will allow the selection of up to 99 automatic spins.

Bonus Features

Game Logo is your Scatter icon which will trigger bonus round when 3 or more land anywhere on the reels. You’ll get to enjoy triple pleasure as it not only awards 10 Free Games but also an increasing Multiplier and a Locked Wild. Bonus game will start with x2 Multiplier which will then increase by 1 after every second spin. This means the wins achieved during your 9th and 10th Free Spins will be multiplied by 6. And that’s not all!
When free game round begins, Wild icon will appear in the central position on the reels. It will remain there for the duration of Free Spins to help you form winning combos. Feature cannot be re-triggered so you’ll have to land Scatter triplicate once again to enjoy this bonus.

Payouts

Reporting an RTP of 94.99%, Halloween Fortune II is more volatile than its predecessor. Skull is your highest paying regular icon and will cash out 1,000x your line bet for five-of-a-kind. Spooky Wild Pumpkin provides an even more generous payout, delivering up to 3,000x line bet value. Should you be staking the max, Pumpkin could award as much as $30,000. If you want more, you’ll need to get lucky in Free Spins bonus round and land high-value symbol combinations while maximum multipliers are active.

Verdict

Playtech has once again provided a nice little Halloween treat. Just because the spookiest holiday of the year has ended, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t give it a try. Familiar spell-casting crowd comes with some new features which could prove to be just as rewarding.
We kind of miss Gamble option offered in the original slot, as well as the pick & choose game which was delivered through the Witches’ Brew Bonus. On the other hand, now we can benefit from a bonus round which simultaneously delivers Free Spins, Multipliers and a locked Wild icon.
Additionally, the sequel comes with extra paylines and higher volatility, so if you like your slots with a bit more variance, you might like this one better. Bet range is wide enough to suit you whatever your preferences and bankroll. Lovely witches will travel with you wherever you go, with the help of your mobile device rather than their brooms.
