Halloween Based Bingo Side Games Released

In the online casino games released earlier this month by Microgaming there were no online slots based on the Halloween theme. Now Microgaming has made up for this by launching a number of bingo side games for Halloween. A press release from Microgaming reads "Experience the fear factor with Microgaming's eerie new bingo side games".

The first of the Halloween games is appropriately named Trick or Treat. This is a three reel single payline online slot game. The tricks come in the form of sinister pumpkin and menacing bat symbols but they ultimately lead to the treat of payouts of up to 4,000 coins.

Winning Wizards is a five reel video slot that uses the best of graphics and animations to take players into the enchanting world of wizards. Here players will not only encounter magic potions and ancient treasures but payline wins that pay both left to right and right to left. The Wizard is the wild symbol that substitutes for all symbols except the scatter symbol. The bottom line in Winning Wizards is a maximum jackpot of up to 10,000 coins.

Everyone knows that of all the magical folk Goblins are the fiercest guardians of treasure. Goblins Gold is a three reel slots game set in an atmospheric underground lair where the goblins hide the gold. The jackpot they are guarding goes up to 6,000 coins. In this game the Goblin is the wild symbol.

The final game in the new releases is Monster Mania. This five reel nine payline video slot offers the lowest jackpot payout. The maximum payout in this game is only 1,000 coins. But during Halloween players play also for the fun and Monster Mania has plenty of that with comically created "crazy critters" as symbols on the reels. The wild symbol is ironically named Scatter Brain and appears on reels 2, 3 and 4 only. There is a separate scatter symbol that pays any and has payouts multiplied by the total bet.

Neill Whyte, Bingo Operations Manager at Microgaming said, "We are committed to offering regular side games to our operators to give their players new and fresh content." He added that the bingo sector is experiencing tremendous growth in terms of traffic being attracted to online bingo halls. In order to further fuel that traffic Microgaming is releasing new side games every month. These games give players something to do while waiting for the balls to be drawn. At the same time they form "an invaluable acquisition tool and revenue drivers" for the Microgaming online bingo operators. Usually the side games are released towards the end of the month and because Halloween is round the corner it is only apt that the games have a Halloween theme this time.

Would be nice to see a few more Halloween themed online slots games in some of the software providers suites of casino games as I don't think there are really all that many online slots games out there that have a Halloween theme associated with them.
