As Halloween is fast approaching, the team at SlotBeats has sunk its teeth into Big Time Gaming’s nightmarish slot release Castle of Terror, which douses players in holy water to protect them from a hoard of shape-shifting vampires and claims our Slot of the Week prize.
As a 6×4 reel slot, Castle of Terror uses a randomly triggered holy water bonus feature to enhance the base game with character symbol wilds. The title has 4,096 ways to win and can offer players a chance of winning up to x51,720 their stake.
Low value symbols come in the form of the high end of a deck of cards, with nine through to Ace. Next up, medium value symbols are represented by an old bearded man, a bonnet-wearing woman and a red collared man.
The highest-paying symbol is depicted as a purple woman. If the right amount of paying combinations land in one go, then all of these symbols can offer between x0.1 and x50 the player’s preferred bet.
Two scatters are represented by grey and gold castles. Landing three or more of these scatters will award the free spins feature. If at least one of the castles triggering the feature is golden, the enhanced free spins feature will be activated.
On every spin in the base game, there is a chance that two or more symbols will be hit by holy water, causing the medium and high-paying character symbols to turn wild and increase a win multiplier on the top of the reels by one.
This win multiplier will be applied to any subsequent wins caused by the holy water feature and any characters that become affected by the holy water will reveal their true vampire form.
Landing three scatters awards 12 free spins in either free spins feature, with any additional scatters offering an extra three spins each.
In the standard free spins feature, the win multiplier above the reels starts at one and increases by one every time a character symbol becomes wild, as holy water lands on the reels with every spin.
With the enhanced feature, this win multiplier starts at two and increases by two with each character symbol turning wild. In both features, reaching a win multiplier of 20 awards the player an extra six free spins.
