After Christmas, Halloween is the UK’s favourite holiday, so if you are a casino, you gotta have a bangin’ collection of Halloween slots, no?!

Halloween isn’t just about witches, ghosts’ ghouls. Every country does scary their own way. The Brits do trick or treat, Ireland has Jack O’Lanterns, the Latin world has Dia de los Muertos and the Chinese have ghost night.

With a cursed cast of characters and spooky symbols, this frightful festival has all the ingredients for a great slots theme. And here are the gruesome games that’ll send chills down your spine and give you a freakin’ good time.

Halloween symbols & features

If you were designing your own Halloween online slot, we bet that pumpkin symbols would be top of your list. From evil pumpkin bikers to stacked pumpkin wilds, this vegetable is the of Halloween slot symbols.

In second place are witches of many forms, from grizzled old hags to the younger, raunchier variety that are common in the fantasy genre.

If there’s a witch symbol in a Halloween online slot, there’ll be witch regalia, including brooms, cauldrons and potions. Here how’s the Halloween Fortune 2 slot approaches slot symbols…

Grim Muerto slot

Witches can be the hero or the villain, but there’s no doubt about the ghosts, skeletons and skulls, mummies, zombies, dismembered body parts and assorted ghouls.

Creepy creatures are also go-to for slots designers searching for sinister symbols. Bats and black cats are the obvious choice for Halloween slot symbols, as well as crows and ravens. If it’s black and breathes, it’s good to go!

Slots providers aren’t just there to create cool graphics and symbols, they need to apply the theme to the slot’s bonus features too. Pumpkin Smash has one of the best Halloween slots features, with its eponymous Pumpkin Smash bonus.

Smash the pumpkin to reveal between 2 and 20 prizes. The bigger the pumpkin, the more prizes you’ll win.

The original Halloween Fortune has a great Free Spins bonus which awards between 3 and 20 spins, followed by a potion picker mini game to choose a multiplier of up to 10x during Free Spins.

Egg hunts are the name of the game in Easter slots like Red Tiger’s Lucky Easter, and best of all, OJO’s top Christmas slots, the original seasonal slots theme.
