Low value symbols are represented by the high end of a deck of cards, from 10 through to Ace. These symbols can offer between x0.2 and x6 the player’s bet, depending on the number of winning combinations that appear on a single spin. 

Next up, potions, gravestones, cauldrons and witch hats depict the medium value symbols, offering between x0.6 and x30 the player’s preferred stake. 

High value symbols come in the form of ravens and black cats. If the right number of matching combinations land on a single spin, these symbols can offer between x2 and x60 the chosen bet. 

Scatter gold coins are available on reels one, three and five, triggering a random number of free spins each time three land on the same spin. 

Finally, wild pumpkins can appear, substituting for all symbols other than the gold scatters. Landing three, four or five wilds in a winning combination will provide wins of x3, x15 or x60 the player’s bet, respectively. 


Each time a pumpkin wild drops into play adjacent to one of the high value raven or cat symbols, the infective wilds feature will be activated. This causes those high value symbols to transform into wilds. 

If those transformed high value symbols are adjacent to any other high value symbols themselves, then those symbols will also transform into wilds. This process is repeated until no adjacent high value symbols are available. 

When activating the free spins, players are presented with eight individual reels as each reel reveals a number between one and three. Once all the numbers have been revealed, they will be added together and awarded as the total number of free spins, allowing for a minimum of eight and a maximum of 24.  

During the free spins, all wild symbols that land on reels two through four will stay sticky on the board for the entity of the game mode. This will also be the case for infected wilds. 

Furthermore, players can buy access to the free spins game mode for the price of x100 their stake. 


Irina Cornides, Chief Operating Officer at Pragmatic Play, stated: “We set out to create a game that embodies the spooky spirit of Halloween while also offering an unexpected mechanic – Infective Wild with its infectious feature spreading wilds across the reels does just that and more. 

“Providing big win potential in the base game and a culmination of wild wins in the bonus, the slot provides thrills that can be enjoyed all year round as well as throughout the spooky season. We’re excited to see the reception this Halloween-themed slot has from players and operators alike.”
