3.6out of 5 stars
Spooky Goings-onIf you enjoyed the antics of Bill Murray and his sidekicks in the massive hit film, you’ll immediately recognise the main characters of Peter Venkman, Ray Stantz, Egon Spengler and Winston Zeddemore and their ghostbusting car and proton packs. Other characters include Slimer, the green ghoul and the Marshmallow Man. The screen is bursting with special features as the movie soundtrack plays ‘I ain’t ‘fraid of no ghost’ in the background as you spin the reels and clips from the movie play when you win prizes. Slimer is the main character who entices you to play and makes sarcastic comments, while the Marshmallow Man dishes out marshmallow chunks which give you wilds and multipliers as the librarian shrieks in fright. In fact, all the slot’s characters are dynamic and change when free spins are activated.
GameplayYou need 50 credits for each spin on the 30 paylines, which can be activated by using a minimum of 20 credits. Although the screen has a lot going on, it’s simple to play, with an orange Spin button at the centre bottom and all the other usual buttons.
Bonus RoundsAs well as the exciting game screen, Ghostbusters from IGT offers several bonus features, including Ballroom Buster, where you get a proton pack strapped to you in order to fire at objects and blow up the room. You get five chances to spot the hidden ghouls, and each capture gives you credits. Some ghosts also have multipliers so you can double your prize. Marshmallows rain down from the sky in the Stay Puft bonus round, and if they stick to the icons on screen, they turn them into wild multipliers, again doubling your winnings when you hit a winning combo. Activate this round by spinning two of the Ghostbusters logo Bonus symbols on reels 2 and 3 and the Stay Puft Bonus icon on reel 4. The Psychic bonus feature takes you to a card game where you have to pick a card which matches the one Dr Venkman is holding in his hand. And Paranormal Pick is another bonus round where you get to choose a green cloud to have a chance of getting the progressive jackpot. Although he’s gruesome to look at, Slimer is who you want to find, as he’ll also give you Cash Awards paying out 50 to 1000 times your coin value as he performs a funny act.
Wild ReelsProbably the game’s most exciting feature, Wild Reels sees between one and three reels get ‘slimed’ in order to turn into wild reels, offering excellent returns.
ConclusionBecome part of the fearless team zapping ghosts in this exciting slot, which offers adventure, fun and the chance of some great bonus features and prizes as you get to join the zany characters of the Ghostbusters movie.
