Halloween is just around the corner, and whilst there probably won't be quite as much trick-or-treating as usual going on this year, there will still be plenty of other ways to celebrate. Online casino players who want to mark the occasion by playing some seasonal slots have plenty of suitably themed games to choose from, so in this article, we will share a generous clawful of our personal favourites for you to take a look at.
Try out the spooky Halloween Jack video slot in October
Released by NetEnt
in October 2018, Halloween Jack is a superbly atmospheric slot that has a genuinely scary vibe. The action takes place in a misty graveyard with a storm brewing in the distance, and the visuals have a mature and realistic style that really pulls you - possibly even kicking and screaming - into the action.
Throw in a haunting soundtrack, walking wilds and a Free Spins feature with stacked Hell Hound, Jack-o'-lantern or Expanding Death Reaper wild symbols
, and Halloween Jack has all that's needed to deliver some chills. For best effect, we suggest playing alone, in the dark and wearing headphones.

Created for Microgaming by Triple Edge Studios in 2017, Halloween is a five-reel slot based on the 1978 movie of the same name. A dozen subsequent movies, comprising both sequels and reboots, have been released in the four decades since, but the original Halloween, which first introduced the world to the masked serial killer Michael Myers, is still considered the best.
This slot is designed to put you right in the middle of that movie, and features the same familiar characters (played by Jamie Lee Curtis and Donald Pleasance) and soundtrack. Keep your eyes open for the dagger-wielding Michael peeking out at you from different points in the background as you play for Free Spins, a Trick or Treat Wheel Bonus and Boogeyman Bonus.

Those of you who prefer to celebrate Halloween in a slightly more lighthearted way would do well to take a look at Happy Halloween from Play’n GO
. This title was first released in 2015, and has a rather festive look about it, with pumpkin-coloured fairy lights decorating the trees in a spooky woodland area.
Cartoon-style symbols on the reels show a variety of Halloween treats, such as cupcakes and toffee apples, as well as some classic horror characters, including Frankenstein's monster, a bandaged Mummy and a funny looking Ghost. A Witch wearing a traditional pointed hat serves as the scatter symbol, and she can help you to trigger up to 20 free spins. Get really lucky and you could also win a top prize of 10,000 times your bet.

Go on a Halloween adventure with the Lucky Halloween video slot featuring the Pumpking Biker
Lucky Halloween is another tongue-in-cheek title which is well worth a spin or two. This one is from Red Tiger Gaming
, and portrays the familiar Jack-o'-lantern character as a Pumpkin Biker. It seems that Jack is racing around and spreading the Halloween spirit wherever he goes, but he also has the ability to add random wilds, or a huge 3x3 mega wild symbol, onto the reels whenever he chooses.
Trigger free spins by landing three cauldrons full of candy, launch a Full Moon Bonus by landing three haunted castle symbols or activate a Pumpkin Tree multiplier bonus to send your winnings soaring like a bat out of hell.

House of Fun
Although this isn't a game with a specific Halloween theme, it is one that is perfectly suited to being played at this time of year. Created by Betsoft
, it has a lengthy (but skippable) opening cinematic sequence which shows how a young couple called Paul and Jane get a flat tyre when driving along a dark road in the middle of nowhere. They end up walking to find help, and come across a large mansion which is the House of Fun alluded to in the title.
As you might expect, given its inclusion in this list, the House of Fun slot is chock full of strange characters and bizarre surprises. With a Jack-in-the-Box Free Spins feature, a Mad Click Me feature and a disorienting Escape Bonus Round, the House of Fun is also packed with fantastic animations that can't fail to have you jumping at every turn.

Halloween Fortune and Halloween Fortune II
There aren't many Halloween slots that have been followed up with a sequel, but Halloween Fortune is one of the few that has. The original title was released by Playtech in 2012, but don't let that put you off because the game has aged surprisingly well, and is just as enjoyable today as it was back in the day.
Fire it up, and you will spend your gaming session in the company of three sexy and fun-loving witches who are keeping themselves busy by mixing potions, casting spells and flying around on broomsticks. Trigger a Witches' Brew Bonus, and you'll get to select your choice of the three witches to help you make the most out of up to 20 free spins with a multiplier of up to 10x.
Halloween Fortune II was released in 2016 and proved that witches who know what they're doing only get better looking with age. The witches in this game are stacked on all reels, and when you trigger the free spins feature you will benefit from a locked wild in the centre of the grid, as well as an increasing multiplier.

Get Set to Scare Yourself Silly!
There are plenty of other slots that you could play as part of your Halloween festivities, but the titles highlighted here are the ones that we would recommend most highly. Consider focusing on one or two per session or go the whole way and enjoy them all in an extended Night of the Spinning Dead (or something) and have a happy Halloween!
