Halloween is fast approaching so we can expect plenty of horror-themed slots to hit the online casino shelves over the next few weeks. Kicking things off is Austrian developer Novomatic which has just launched the vampire-themed Tales of Darkness: Lunar Eclipse.
Many slots from Novomatic stick to a pretty similar formula but Tales of Darkness: Lunar Eclipse offers something a little different, starting with the game engine. The action takes place on a 6 reel machine that offers 10 paylines – it can be played from just 10p a spin on all devices.
The visuals will be familiar to anyone who has fired up a Novomatic game before though. The setting is a spooky cemetery. There you’ll find A to J royal symbols as well as rings, crowns and a pair of glamorous female vampires. The best of these awards 150 times your total stake if you land 6 in combination.
The symbol you’ll really be wanting to see though is the full moon. This is a wild that substitutes for all other symbols and also a scatter which can trigger the Free Games feature. You’ll need 3 or more of these scatters on the same spin to activate that extra. After receiving a payout of between 2 and 200 times your stake, you’ll be awarded 10 free spins.
Before the free spins begin, 1 symbol is chosen at random. This special symbol can hit on reels 2 and 5 only. If the special symbol lands on both of those reels on the same free spin, the symbols directly in between will transform into the special symbol too – this is known as the Lunar Eclipse Bonus feature.
Winning combinations can be created from right to left as well as the more usual left to right during the feature. You can also win a further 10 free spins taking your total to 20. You’ll won’t see better looking horror-themed slots than Tales of Darkness: Lunar Eclipse. The free spins round makes this an appealing game though, especially if you like volatile action. The variance here is very high with wins of 1,5000 times your stake available on every spin.
These magical vampires can make your bankroll disappear quickly. Get lucky with the special symbol in the feature though and explosions of coins are possible. If you’re a horror fan and fancy getting in the mood for Halloween or just fancy playing a high risk, high reward slot then Tales of Darkness: Lunar Eclipse fits the bill perfectly.
