The 3 genuinely scary horror-themed slots to play in 2020

Posted on: August 14th, 2020

The casino industry loves to build slots based around the horror genre. The only problem is, very few of these titles are actually scary. Slots like Ooh Aah Dracula (Barcrest) are a lot of fun to play but are unlikely to leave you scurrying behind the sofa. So, what are the 3 most genuinely scary slots still around in 2020? Below you can see our top 3, but we recommend you to try them out for yourself, since all of them can be played at Mr Green casino.

Bloodsuckers II
In this NetEnt slot, we follow the adventures of the crossbow-wielding vampiress Amelia, as she seeks revenge on those who took her family’s castle away from away. Some of the symbols in the base game are really quite frightening, especially the green Nosferatu-looking dude with the long fingernails. But the real creepiness comes in the hidden treasure bonus game, when Amelia enters the crypt and you tell her to start opening coffins. If you get lucky, you win a prize, but open the wrong coffin and an evil spirit will emerge, slash you across the face, and your game is over!

Dr Jekyll Goes Wild
Barcrest may have produced a light-hearted horror slot with Ooh Aah Dracula, but their take on the Jekyll & Hyde story is seriously creepy. While a Hammer horror-style piano piece plays in the background, we are taken on a ride through the smog-filled streets of Victorian London, until we find ourselves outside Dr Jekyll’s laboratory. The reels are framed by test tubes filled with the mysterious green liquid that the doctor uses to transform himself into the violent, impulsive Mr Hyde. The game’s free spins round is triggered by landing 3 scatters, represent by the symbol of Jekyll making the frightening transformation. Depending on your location, you might also be able to trigger the bonus via Barecrest’s usual Big Bet feature.

Lost Vegas
This zombie-themed slot from Microgaming is a little like the Walking Dead TV show. It is set in the casino city of Las Vegas, a few months after it (and perhaps the world?) has fallen victim to a biological weapon. Your first choice is which side you want to play for: the survivors or the zombies. The undead are always the more frightening option, with zombified Elvis impersonators, nurses and tourists. If you do play with this team, you can take advantage of an infection feature in the bonus round, where the zombie characters become stacked wilds, infecting each reel they touch for the remainder of the spins. A full set of 5 reels playing in this mode can net players a return of 2155x.

Playing casino games is always thrilling, but when you add the spine-chilling fear factor into the mix, they become veritable excitement fests. It’s not often you get the chance to win while being frightened out of your wits, but the 3 slot games might just do the trick. Give them a spin and let me know you think.
