Two Fantastic Ghostbuster Video Slots


Even if you do not believe in ghosts, you are likely to enjoy stories based on ghostbusting. There are two in popular video slots at online casinos.

IGT offers a branded video slot titled Ghostbusters, which is based on the blockbuster Hollywood film of the same name. The high paying symbols are the ghostbusters from the movie: Peter Venkman, Raymond Stantz, Egon Spengler and Winston Zeddemore. The low paying symbols are the contraptions they use to catch the ghosts. There are two wild symbols Slime and Gozer. These symbols also award the highest line payouts. Players familiar with the movie will recall these characters and enjoy the win animations.

Ghostbusters video slot has four Mystery Features that may be randomly triggered in the main game. These award payout multipliers, instant bonuses, wild reels and extra wild symbols. There are two bonus features as well. In the Ballroom Busters Bonus you have five photon shots to zap any of the hidden ghosts. If you find a ghost you will get a random bonus credit. If no ghost is uncovered in five shots you get nothing. The Stay Puft Bonus awards eight free spins. The number of paylines is increased from 30 to 40. After any free spin the marshmallows symbol may create locked wilds that remain on the reels for the rest of the feature.

Microgaming has developed a ghostbuster themed slot game called Phantom Cash with steampunk styled graphics. The ghostbusters are from the Victorian period and are named Thurmingham and Carstairs. Both of them are wild symbols with 2x multiplier property. Thurmingham appears only on reel 1 and Carstairs appears only on reel 5. The high paying symbols are four ghosts. The scatter symbol is the haunted house. It awards payouts multiplied by the total bet and triggers the bonus feature.

The free spins bonus game starts with the ghost meter set at 8. Thurmingham and Carstairs capture any of the ghosts that land in the same row as them after any free spin. Every ghost caught gives a bonus prize of 2x the triggering bet. The ghost meter reading is reduced by one for every ghost caught. If you land three scatter symbols on the reels during the feature, the ghost meter reading increases by 8. There is no fixed number of free spins in the bonus feature. The free spins will continue till the ghost meter reading is zero.
