The link between heavy metal and the occult, or more specifically Satan, is something that has been explored in the media but rarely ever in a video slot. House of Doom, from Play’n Go, bravely changes all that in this horror-themed slot with features that include the Doom Spins, Wild House of Doom, HellGate and Skulls of Abyss.
House of Doom Invoking Terror
With a darker theme, the slot is visually designed to invoke terror, or at least reinforce the concept, as evident when you first dare to enter the game. The black reels only partially conceal the pile of skulls with the dominating view of an old church towering above and behind the reels. Intermittent flashes of thunder momentarily light the background designed in shades of purple, with mist and drizzle.
The higher-value symbols include a ram’s head, a flaming red rose, a crucifix and a pentagram trinket. Blood-red poker suit symbols dominate the lower-value end. The audio effects include the blazing sound of heavy metal when the reels spin and the other effects like the sound of thunder, rain and ominous church bell ringing.
Fortune Teller Wild
The crystal ball peering fortune teller is a wild who can substitute for all symbols except the skull scatter symbol.
On each spin, one of the reels is randomly highlighted for the HellGate feature. Whenever a fortune teller wild lands on this chosen reel, the wild will expand to cover the entire reel. This feature is triggered quite often and does improve the odds of winning. During the Doom Spins anywhere from 2 to 5 reels are highlighted.
The House of Doom scatter symbol may appear on any reel with three on a space activating the 10 Doom Free Spins feature, where the scatter becomes a Wild House of Doom wild that can also form a winning payline with 2 or more symbols, along with a free spin per symbol.
Skulls of Abyss
When three skull scatter symbols turn up on a spin, the Skulls of Abyss Bonus Game is triggered presenting you with 15 skulls, from which to choose, to uncover the hidden prize. Win either 1x, 2x or 3x your total win and continue picking or entry to the Doom Spins, 20x or 5x your total win and end the feature.
