It was on 24th October 2018 that NetEnt added the Halloween video slot Halloween Jack™, bringing a perfect game for the scariest day a week later. Now again, NetEnt is planning to launch a Halloween-themed video slot a week before Halloween and this year, on the most frightening day of the year, you can look forward to The Wolf’s Bane™ slot in which you’ll stalk the streets by night with a pack of werewolves. Do I need to say more (except of course a traditional preview of what’s coming)?
NetEnt’s Halloween video slots
With over 130 video slots available at the NetEnt Casinos, you can expect a wide range of themes and horror as a theme can’t be missed. Horror-themed video slots aren’t only popular during Halloween, but all year long. The most popular one from the NetEnt collection is Blood Suckers™, providing an incredible payout percentage of 98%, the highest of all modern NetEnt slots.
In my Top 5 Halloween video slots published 2 years ago, I also mentioned Blood Suckers 2™ slot, Universal Monsters Dracula online slot™, Devil’s Delight™ and Zombies™, but the last two games never received an HTML5 upgrade and so if I would rewrite the article, I would add Halloween Jack™ and the new The Wolf’s Bane™ slot as I don’t have to see the preview video to find out that it’s going to be a perfect addition to the top 5 Halloween slots.
Even though I don’t have much material to base my preview on, it’s enough for me to provide a decent description of The Wolf’s Bane™ slot, including the gameplay and special video slot features. We have to wait a bit more than 6 weeks for this new horror video slot to arrive at the NetEnt Casinos, just in time for the Halloween party! Meanwhile, you can enjoy yourself with the following horror-themed video slots:
Blood Suckers™ slot
About a decade ago, NetEnt introduced a scary video slot to the reels with, for that time, the necessary slot features to become extremely popular. It’s one of NetEnt’s oldest game available right now as many outdated video slots didn’t survive the HTML5 upgrade. This Halloween-themed did, but what else to expect from the video slot with the highest Return to Player! The ongoing popularity of the Blood Suckers™ slot is most probably due to the payout percentage of 98%, but this wouldn’t be possible if the game didn’t offer enough entertainment.
Blood Suckers 2™ slot
As the sequel to the Blood Suckers™ slot, the Blood Suckers 2™ slot was blessed with a great reputation from day one. This horror-themed video slot is bringing the vampires back to the reels, but has definitely more to offer than its predecessor.
The 98% payout didn’t wasn’t copied, though, but in return, you meet the well-designed Amilia at the vampire castle which you’ll help to find the Hidden Treasure of her ancestors. They were slaughtered by vampire hunters years ago and all she wants is revenge!
Universal Monsters Dracula™ slot
The Universal Monsters Dracula online slot™ is, in my opinion, one of the best blockbusters launched by NetEnt so far. The moment the most famous bloodsucker appeared on the reels in this NetEnt slot, I was intimidated by his appearance while being impressed by NetEnt’s creation!
I’m seriously charmed by the vivid animations this Halloween-themed slot is offering which is based on the 1931 movie featuring Dracula and NetEnt managed to portray Dracula in its own way, making this slot worth playing.
Halloween Jack™ slot
Hellish video slot features seem to await you when you decide to play the Halloween Jack™ slot at one of the many NetEnt Casinos.
Those who pay attention will recognize the gameplay this scary-themed video slot is blessed with. This time you won’t see Jack and his Beanstalk, but you’ll again enjoy the high volatility game, able to pay out incredible wins.
The Wolf’s Bane™ slot preview
Terror returns to the reels as soon as The Wolf’s Bane™ slot is being launched at the NetEnt casinos a week before Halloween 2019. Terror is good in this case because what else to expect from such a theme, and this time werewolves will be disturbing the night! You’ll find yourself beneath a full moon while stalking an 18th-century village by night. You will be a fanged, clawed menace and part of an ungodly pack of wolfish creatures. In a bit more than 6 weeks, you’ll be able to gaze out from a dark forest and emerge at night to feed. May God have mercy on those poor villagers’ souls!
As we’ve seen in a few more NetEnt slots lately, now again levels have been ditched and bets can only be created with the help of different coin values. I support this totally, but more important for this preview is the design and the video slot features we can expect in The Wolf’s Bane™ slot as soon it’s becoming available.
While watching the above preview video, it won’t take long for the design to be revealed and it’s no surprise that it’ll involve a good number of howling wolves. While the werewolves will have a constant desire to feed themselves, you’ll have a constant hunger for winning combinations. Unfortunately, it’s almost impossible to figure out if this game is going to offer low or high volatility, but what I do know is that at least three Full Moon symbols will unlock Free Spins with four possible Wilds available, one for each stage of a wolf’s transformation.
Free Spins can be activated with either an Expanding Wild, an x2 Multiplier Wild, a Regular Wild, and a Spreading Wild and hitting the STOP button will select the Wild randomly. Watch the above preview video to see what each Wild has to offer in The Wolf’s Bane™ slot.
While the Free Spins feature is obviously offering a highlight, 3 Bonus Symbols summons the Pick and Click feature in which you pick your bonus symbols to reveal a coin win. Beware of the wolf frenzy in The Wolf’s Bane™ slot and get ready for another exciting time on the reels this Halloween!
