It’s that time of year in which online casinos come up with their holiday themed slot machines and Microgaming is not an exception. They have released a Halloween themed video slot called Peek-a-Boo. Peek-a-Boo is the new Microgaming video slot that has a similar theme to the much-loved 3 reel slot that Microgaming has in its slot assortment from a few years ago. The new Peek-a-Boo is an exciting vamped up version of that! Get ready to go on a scary hunt for ghosts in a haunted house!
So what’s the difference between the two slot games with the same name? Well first of all, the graphics are not that much different. New ones have been added to the new version because obviously there are no bonus rounds in the 3 reel version and there are bonus rounds in the 5 reel video slot hence the new symbols. The new version of Peek-a-Boo is a 5 reel and 30 payline video slot where the 3 reel classic is well, a 3 reel slot. The video slot includes features that we find in regular video slots that are not available in the 3 reel classic slot and they include a Free Spins bonus round, a Respin feature and Stacked Wilds.
When the free spins bonus round is triggered, the normal game changes into a 1024 Ways-to-Win game. Normally we see three scatter symbols as the key to launching a bonus round, but in the new Peek-a-Boo, you will need to look for a “Kid” symbol which will appear in reel three. When the “Kid” lands in reel three, he will shoot down some ghosts that are in the other reels and you will be awarded prizes. Every ghost that is shot down is then placed “Ghost Meter” that you will see on the right hand side of the slot machine. Once the “Ghost Meter” is completely full, the Free Spins bonus round will launch.
Peek-a-Boo is a fun game to play being the time of year it is and for those of you who love holiday themed slot machines, this one is perfect for the season. So go on a ghost hunt and catch all the ghosts you can. It’ll be worth it!
