Let’s face it, we’re all here because we love a good scare. A good horror movie, TV show, book or even comic can get the adrenaline flowing, send that old familiar shiver down your spine, and make you wonder if that dark shadow in the corner is really just a dark shadow after all. We all love the way that a good scary story can stay with us for days. It can make us think about life in new ways. It can make us jump, and then make us laugh at ourselves. Now, you can even give yourself a scare whilst trying to win money!
Many of us have irrational fears. You might be afraid of being left alone in the dark, for example. You might have an irrational fear of looking under your bed late at night. Nobody, however, is likely to be afraid of logging on to CloverCasino.com and playing a few casino games – but that all might be about to change. Join us, as we examine the scariest online slot games known to humanity!
It seems like no major movie franchise is complete without a series of money making tie ins. Paranormal Activity is definitely a major movie franchise, so it should come as no surprise that a tie in online slot game is available. It’s a scary enough thing to look at on its own, but if you’re a fan of the movies, the experience of playing the game is all the more rewarding. Sorry, did we say ‘rewarding’? We meant ‘terrifying’.
From the spine-tinglingly atmospheric soundtrack, to the wonderfully spooky visual touches (the scatter symbol is a hand with a hole in it, and don’t even get us started on the possessed girl who turns up as the wild…) this is a licensed product that justifies the name. There are 243 separate ways to win money from the game if you can hold your nerve for long enough to play it. We recommend keeping the lights on. And maybe having some holy water on standby.
Dracula is a story that captured the imagination of the public – and gave them nightmares – from the moment Bram Stoker first published it in 1897. It’s been adapted into fiction perhaps more times than any other iconic monster, with a seemingly endless number of television, film and comic book versions of the tale. So which one is this game based on? All of them, and yet none of them.
Instead of trying to draw inspiration from any one of the movies, this game takes its inspiration from the story as a whole. That’s why there’s a whole new visual representation of the vampire himself sat there on his throne, watching you as you play. He drums his fingers impatiently. He seems to stare into your soul. Frankly, he gives us the creeps. At the game’s core is a very traditional reel-based slot machine game, which is easy to follow so long as you don’t get distracted by the occasional horde of vampire bats flocking across your screen.
Alaxe in Zombieland
Not all of these titles are adapted from movies. Some are just the twisted works of a scary mind. Take Alaxe in Zombieland, for example. Somebody has taken the famous tale of “Alice in Wonderland” (also is it just us, or is that movie already a little bit scary on its own?), renamed the title character, and dropped her into a nightmare world full of zombies. Doesn’t that sound like fun?
This may actually be the scariest game on this list. The soundtrack is honestly worthy of a horror classic – suspenseful and unsettling and there’s some nice animation twists to keep you on your toes. If you can keep Alaxe out of the hands of the undead, there are 25 winning lines to find. Or you might just settle for escaping with your nerves intact. That’s still a form of victory!
Full Moon Fortunes
Why should vampires, zombies and ghosts get to have all the fun? There’s an argument to say that werewolves are the one classic horror movie monster to have been under-represented at the box office in recent years. That’s not the case in the casino world, where they’re hard at work to shred your nerves in this game.
The setting for the title drops you in deep, dark woods in the dead of night, where the character of Dr Blackwood is struggling with his new identity of being half man and half beast. He’s like Jekyll and Hyde, but hairier. There’s plenty more to howl at in this game than just bad luck if you don’t find a winning line. That being said, every free spin multiplies your winnings by 25, so it at least offers a little generosity at the same time as fuelling your nightmares.
Attack of the Zombies
Are you a fan of zombie stories? Are you also a fan of Game of Thrones? Well, do we have the game for you! Those pesky zombies get everywhere, and in this case they’ve found their way to medieval England. The London of old is under siege, and the brain-eating undead are around every corner.
We’re not even sure the zombies have come alone in this game. As well as a haunting guitar based soundtrack, there’s also the occasional cry of a distant wolf for you to try to ignore as you look for winning combinations. There’s a nice anime style to the graphics which might even count as cute if it was placed in a different setting. As it is, it only serves to make the experience even weirder.
Nightmare On Elm Street
We couldn’t finish off this list without revisiting a classic. Who among us hasn’t stayed awake at night, desperately trying to fend off sleep in case Freddy comes to get us? You know a game means business when the opening screen actually warns you that the gory content might mean it isn’t suitable for all players.
If you’re brave enough to give it a try, you’ll be rewarded with some neat bonus rounds based on the movies, and a progressive jackpot that builds up as you play on. If you can manage to play the game without turning on the soundtrack, you’re braver than us!
