The Ghouls Slots

Various ghouls and creatures turn up in this horrifying slot… horrifying, that is, in terms of its theme rather than anything else. It is a great game to try, with lots of features to look out for and a dark and foreboding setting too. Shall we brave the slot and see what it can offer?

A familiar developer is behind this one

Yes, and the name is none other than Betsoft.

Does that mean we can try a demo version first?

Yes, Betsoft usually gives us the chance to do this, and that is the case here.

A horrific theme is in evidence

Yes, this is a horror-themed slot, so you can expect lots of horror characters to turn up on the reels here. Some are familiar, as you’ll see…

Top marks for design?

This is a 2D slot, so it is not the most detailed in their collection. However, you can count on some great icons appearing, such as a black cat, Frankenstein, a mummy wrapped in bandages, and a spider. None are hugely detailed, but this adds to the feel of the slot, so it works well.

The basics of The Ghouls

There are five reels in this game, with details of a progressive jackpot appearing in red figures above those reels. A ghoulish pumpkin can appear as a substitute, labeled WILD underneath it. A familiar-looking vampire is used as the scatter. However, there is more than one scatter in the game, with a BONUS ROUND scatter shown as a gravestone as well. The wild doesn’t replace these two. It won’t substitute for the haunted house either. This isn’t a bonus icon, but it does trigger the progressive prize if five appear on a paid line, hence why the wild cannot help with this.

Paylines in The Ghouls

There are 20 of them.

Betting options

You can use coins worth from two cents apiece in this game. If you chose the largest coin, you’d wager $150 per spin, so there is a lot of wriggle room.

The paytable is parked by the owl

See it in the top right corner? That’s easy to see with the owl watching over it.

Bonus game opportunity

If you manage to find three scattered gravestones in one spin, you’ll see six graves in a graveyard on the second screen. Five of the graves have prizes hidden in them, while the sixth has a COLLECT message. The idea is to choose a grave to see what it hides. Find a prize and you can pick another one. Carry on until the COLLECT message ends the game.

Free spins from Dracula!

Yes, three or more of those vampire scatters give you five, 10, or 20 free games to play for three, four, or five triggering symbols. These are regular spins, but of course you do not pay for these.

Slot game RTP

It looks to be around 96%.

Our rating for The Ghouls

This gets 8 out of 10 from us. If it was in 3D like many of their other games, we wonder how much better it would be? There is a lot of potential for a re-release of this title, don’t you think?

Winners always want that jackpot

You never know how high it will go before dropping into one player’s lap. However, there are a lot of superb features to enjoy elsewhere in the game that could drop other prizes too.

Try the demo before progressing to the real thing

This is our advice, as there is a lot to appreciate about the demo alone.

Will you play for real?

Could those ghouls be real? We hope not but playing the real version of the game does give you the chance to meet some real prizes.

Mobile play is also possible

Find The Ghouls at all good Betsoft casinos and you should get the chance to try some mobile play too.
