Ever since we were children we have loved to be frightened, let’s face it, fairy stories are not the cuddly, happy-ever-after tales we were led to believe. Full of nasty witches that ate small children, or trolls that lived under a bridge (who also happened to eat small children) even the most loved characters had their beginnings in folk-lore, and were usually dark with dire warnings.
It’s no wonder then that many of us love the horror genre and that includes our love of horror-themed online slots as well as books, films and of course the theatre.
Games now are so much more immersive than they used to be, and if you couple that with the excitement that can be gained then it’s no wonder that they remain so popular.
Take for instance, Immortal Romance (software by Microgaming). These 5-reel, 243 ways to win slot was developed and inspired by the Twilight Saga and the ever-popular game of Cluedo.
In Immortal Romance not only will vampires suck your blood, but they also pay-out some pretty cool prizes. A gory love story full of special features that maintains the staying power of Immortal Romance.
Creatures from the Black Lagoon (software by NetEnt) was brought to our screens after there was a phase of developing slots based on those brilliant, classic Universal Studios titles after a licensing deal was agreed between Universal and NetEnt. This game is available for free on most UK online slots websites & apps.
Creatures from the Black Lagoon is a 5-reel, 20 pay-line slot which is very addictive in its simplicity. With features like free spins, wilds and player interaction to keep you coming back.
Halloweenies (Software by Microgaming) isnt your usual type of horror slot (it’s a bit camp) but it does have ghosts and ghouls included. This 5-reel, 20 pay-line game is fun to play and a little bit quirky which all adds to its appeal.
Twins of Evil (software by Gamesys) turns back the hands of time and is based on the 1971 Hammer Film that starred Peter Cushing who was in numerous horror films between the 1940’s and the 1980’s.
The game is a 5-reel, 20 pay-line creepy offering with a bonus feature that is pretty scary, and to add even more atmosphere, there are some great sound effects of a werewolf howling and lightning strikes.
Wild Blood brought to us by Play’n Go has a lot of similarities to Immortal Romance. The games is a 5-reel, 15 pay-line and tends to be orientated towards female players with four main female characters. Features include wilds, free spins and a bonus feature to trigger as well as multipliers or cash prizes. Tie Domi Jersey
