Join a pumpkin-headed biker in the comic-horror themed Lucky Halloween slot from Red Tiger Gaming. Available to play on desktop, tablet and mobile, it’s a 5 reel, 20 payline game that comes with 3×3 mega wilds, random wilds, a pumpkin tree multiplier and special reels that contain just high value symbols. Also on offer are free spins and a Full Moon trail bonus. Play from between 20p and £500 per spin.

The design in Lucky Halloween is fairly typical of a Red Tiger Gaming – namely, it comes with a glossy, high-ref sheen. Set against a moody, moonlit backdrop, the reels include lower value playing cards as well as a bat flavoured cupcake, bottle of potion, bandaged cat, witch’s hat and a Lucky Halloween motorbike which is a stacked symbol. The pumpkin is the wild, substituting for everything apart from the bonus triggering scatters. It too can appear stacked to fill entire reels.

Watch out for the flash of the headlight and the toot of the horn which herald the arrival of the Pumpkin Rider and with it an extra mini features. These include:

  • Random Wilds feature – the biker will ride onto the screen and remove his pumpkin head and throw it onto the reels to reveal a random selection of added up to 6 added wilds.
  • Special Reels feature – the biker rides across the reels and removes all the lower value playing card symbols. A spin follows with just the higher value symbols in play.
  • Mega Wild feature – the biker delivers a giant 3×3 wild symbol onto the reels.
  • Pumpkin Tree feature – the magical tree can boost your payouts with a multiplier of up to 20x.

3 or more free spins symbols anywhere on the reels triggers the Free Spins feature – pick from 1 of the 3 bowls of marbles to reveal how many free spins you’ve been awarded. The Pumpkin Tree features hit much more regularly here, offering even more chances of securing a big haul of coins as you could get a 20x multiplier and 3×3 mega wild for example. The Pumpkin Biker can also give you more free spins at random!

Lastly, 3 or more bonus symbols trigger the Full Moon Bonus feature – work your way along the trail for a shot at prizes that top 800 times your stake if you make it all the way to the end.

Lucky Halloween is all about the features – it took a time to trigger the Free Spins feature but we managed to cash in when we did thanks to the regular arrival of the Pumpkin Biker’s mini features and some timely re-spins. Payouts of in excess of 150 times your stake are certainly possible here. We found the Full Moon Bonus feature much harder to trigger but it too offers plenty of potential though – I did manage to win 500 times my stake.

Expect some lean spells in the base game when the Pumpkin Biker will seemingly ride off with your bankroll – watch out in the free spins feature though where the biggest potential for wins exists in my opinion. Boasting excellent design and some innovative features, Lucky Halloween is the ideal slot to play to get in the mood for the spookiest night of the year. If you Halloween themed slots, Playtech’s Halloween Fortune and Play ‘N Go’s Happy Halloween are recommended.
