Trick or Treat is Halloween themed slot machine action from Microgaming with 3 reels and 3 paylines. The game is as simple to play as it looks, offering nothing out of the ordinary when it comes to bonus features or special side games. So, you won’t need to hide behind your pillows in anticipation of any unexpected surprises! Nevertheless, the game is still worth a spin or two with its prize paying potential of 20,000 credits.
Trick or Treat, which puts a spooky spin on the traditional gameplay format with icons that depict bats and pumpkins instead of cherries and 7s. Plus, players can also discover some sweet winning potential with an array of “BAR” icons which are cleverly depicted as colourful candy bars rather than boring black blocks as standard. Despite offering something interesting to look at in terms of symbols and colours, Trick or Treat does fall victim to appearing a bit out of date. The illustrations are all rendered in two dimensions and the artwork has a somewhat childish feel to it. So, this is far from being the most terrifying of horror themed games in the world of slot machines.
That spinning action is incredibly easy to get the hang of, allowing spinners of all experience levels to enjoy the prize winning potential on offer. Essentially, players have just two variable factors to take into account: the number of paylines active on the reels and the size of the coins placed as a stake on each active line. Players can opt to play with 1, 2, or 3 paylines by clicking the “Bet One” button and they can toggle the (-) and (+) buttons to reel through the coin size options which are: 0.25, 0.50, 1.00, 2.00 and 5.00.
Wins and rewards
There are a number of ways for players to strike up a winning combination of symbols in this 3-reel Microgaming slot machine. For example, the lowest wins on the board begin with a 5x line bet multiplier that is awarded whenever any combination of three candy BAR icons align on an active payline. You will find more lucrative wins if you manage to line up three matching candy BARs with single BARs offering a 10x line bet multiplier, double BARs paying 20x and triple BARs giving 50x. There is a 75x line bet prize up for grabs if spinners find a combination of three pumpkins or bats, while three matching bats will offer double that at 150x.
The biggest wins on offer are awarded by finding three matched pumpkin symbols. And, in actual fact, the size of the line bet multiplier that is applied depends on the number of paylines that are active. So, if only 1 payline is in play, three pumpkin icons will reward a line bet jackpot of 1,000x and if 2 paylines are in play, the line bet jackpot is double to 2,000x. However, if all 3 paylines are triggered and a row of three pumpkins appear upon one of them, the line bet multiplier jackpot will be doubled again to award prizes worth 4,000x.
As such, players who play with the game’s “Bet Max” option can spin the reels in the hope of turning a 15 credit total bet into a 20,000-credit jackpot.
