Haunted Houses and the stories of paranormal activities that are usually associated with them are like a spark to flint for anyone with a lively imagination. Not only are we captivated by stories of haunted houses in history, but our fascination with modern day stories of haunted buildings also know no bounds.

Haunted House features 3 reels and 5 paylines, and despite its well developed scary theme, the slot game is simple and reminiscent of classic retro slot games. The game does not include any wild, bonus or scatter symbols, but rather focuses on position based winnings.

Symbols Ready to Frighten up a Win
Symbols include all things eerie and spooky – a selection of vampire slaying tools: an old coffin, creepy looking candles, a golden chalice, a knife, garlic and of course, a cross. The six themed symbols offer a 12 possible payout combinations. This is a very different approach when compared to conventional slot games.
Symbols all over different payouts, depending on the total number of matching symbols appearing on a payline, as well as the combination of symbols. 2 garlic symbols are worth 25 credits and 3 candles are worth 50 credits. 3 golden chalice symbols will add 75 credits to the player’s kitty, whilst 3 knife symbols are worth a slightly more lucrative 100 credits. The garlic symbols become very covetable when landed in groups of 3 or more. Up to 1 800 credits are up for grabs. The garlic symbol is the Jackpot symbol.
