A haunted house serves as the frame for the unusual game window with the reels being predominantly populated by Halloween-related icons. A full moon on the background and wavering fog as well as intermittent ghost appearances create the perfect spooky atmosphere which is even more emphasized by a harrowing soundtrack.

On any spin in the base game or free spins, ghosts can randomly rise from the wavering fog to trigger the Wild Ghost Spin. He will fly across the reels one or multiple times, leaving in his wake two to eight wild symbols on random positions on the reels. Once done, he will disappear to the left just as fast as he appeared. Wins are paid after the feature ends. It can be a bit of a hit and miss at times, depending on where the ghost will drop the extra wild symbols.
Although a single Wild Ghost Spin can be sufficient to hit a super mega win, the big money on this slot is in the free spins round. Landing three or four bonus symbols scattered on the reels in one spin will award 8 and 18 free spins respectively.

Ghosts have replaced the lucky dragon although they can turn out to be just as much a lucky charm. The slot plays well and the features trigger frequent enough to avoid boredom.
