The horror theme isn’t usually one of our favourites but Zombie Rush Deluxe won us round and is certainly worth a spin. In case you’re wondering, Leander Games does offer you Zombie Rush which is very similar but without the progressive jackpot element. If you like the zombie or horror theme, iSoftBet’s Paranormal Activity and Playtech’s Vampire Princess of Darkness are worth looking into.
