Paranormal Activity, Now In Slot Machine Form As Well
Paranormal Activity is a name that should feel familiar to a lot of people, being also what an entire series of horror movies was called. iSoftBet got the license to create a slot machine based on this series, and this is what they came up with.
I’m pretty satisfied overall with the result of their work, and I say this as a fan of the series. It started in 2007, and there was a total of 7 films made about it.
The topic was similar in each case, revolving around demons that were haunting a family’s house. The filming was done through security cameras in fixed positions or through handheld cameras, so it didn’t give the impression of a big budget movie.
This game delivers three types of free games, along with scatter symbols and wilds. The combinations form on 243 ways to win, arranged on 5 reels. There is a jackpot of just $150 to win inside.
What We Love
There is a certain scary atmosphere inside this game, which I think belongs there, especially given the theme that was chosen for it.
The screen will sometimes become fuzzy, just like it might happen on an old tape. About half of the symbols which are available in the game are proper choices, with images from inside the house, either with objects or with demons, ghosts and hands with blood on them.
A total of three symbols is used by the game to trigger various features. One of them is the wild symbol, which shows a little girl, a demon by the looks of her. These wilds are capable of replacing the other symbols when necessary, those on the same line as her anyway.
It can help you form additional winning combinations, but the scatters or the bonus symbols don’t get any help from her.
A simpler symbol would be the Bloody Hand scatter, which you use just to get paid. You receive from it 90 to 750 coins, and all you need to do is land 3 to 5 of these symbols somewhere on the reels.
Finally, we get the bonus symbol, which has an X at the top, with the image of the girl and the demon at the bottom. This one is used on three reels, from the first, third and fifth columns. With all three present, you are taken to a bonus wheel, which can deliver a prize or it can give you free spins.
Three types of free spins exist on the wheel, and they are called Possessed Free Spins, Demon Free Spins and Paranormal Free Spins.
What We Do Not Like
Simple poker letters were used for the less valuable symbols, and they don’t help much with the scary atmosphere.
I think that most players will enjoy Paranormal Activity. Unless you really don’t like a horror themed slot machine, I would recommend it to you.
