Microgaming have mixed some ghoulish ghosts with a candy theme to make this Peek-a-Boo slot game more appealing… to those with a sweet tooth?
We’re not sure exactly why you would mix sweets with ghosts, to create a theme that’s probably more aimed at the inner child, but you’ll find the whole collection filled with sweets that resemble Liquorice Allsorts, Wine Gums, and other sugary treats.
The chocolate coins and wrapped up sweets are the lower paying symbols, with the four colourful ghosts making up the higher paying symbols of this Peek-a-Boo slot machine.
All set on a rather plain blue and purple background, these 5×4, 40 bet line reels offer you nothing relatively new, except from the way in which you get to trigger the free spins rounds.
The base game gives you some decent opportunity to create some winning combinations. The wild represented by the Peek-a-Boo slot logo will replace all other symbols and comes stacked across all reels.
This means you stand a decent chance at getting a few sweet slot wins. But much like other Microgaming online slots, it’s the bonus game, and in this case the 1024 ways to win free spins, that will give you your biggest returns of the game.
But how do you trigger them? Unlike some videos slots online, where you have to get a certain amount of bonus symbols or scatters, here you have to zap ghosts to fill up your meter on the right hand side of the screen.
The little guy with the ghost gun is who you’ll be on the look out for; when he appears on reel 3 it can zap one ghost per reel and store them in the ghost meter.
When the ghost meter is full you will get to spin your free games, which hold a few extra surprises and thrills.
Trigger the free spins and the 40 bet lines will quickly change into 1024 ways to win reels, offering wins for symbols on three or more adjacent symbols from left to right.
Obviously this simply gives you easier wins, which is just what you need here.
But what makes this bonus game even more fun and exciting is the fact that if you get a 3 of a kind wins, reels 4 and 5 will respin to try and get you a 4 or 5 of a kind win.
The same happens if you have a 4 of a kind win, but this time only reel 5 will respin.
And that’s not all, reels 4 and 5 contain super stacked wilds meaning those free re-spins, and every spin you take, could offer some very big rewards.
How much? Well we’ve managed to get a decent 65x our bet as a decent high average, but there’s plenty more on offer with a maximum spin win of 100,000 waiting in this Peek a Boo video slot.
The bright and colourful slot symbols bring some fun to this game. The base game with it’s stacked wilds can provide some alright wins, but it’s there to keep you going whilst you wait for the potentially high rewarding free spin games, which is full of ghostly fun.
There’s no doubt that the 1024 ways to win free spins, with free respins and super stacked wilds, are there to guarantee that you rarely walk away disappointed.
The return to player rate of 96% – 97% is decent for this medium variance Microgaming game and a betting range of 0.40 up to 100 allows bigger betters the opportunity to play, though it might alienate those who like to bet slightly smaller.
Overall the graphics aren’t the best we’ve seen, and the theme is lacking dazzle, but the game play makes up for it with some decent spinning and winning opportunities.
Go try out a few spooky spins, and see if you can get some super sweet wins.Play Now at Guts »
