Pumpkin Bonanza Review
If you are someone who isn't easily scared, you'll love Playtech's Halloween themed slot Pumpkin Bonanza. This slot plays on 5-reels with 10 paylines and gives players the chance to win up to 2,000x your stake.
Whilst there are limited features such as Pumpkin wilds and Bonanza spin, they are valuable features that help you get towards the maximum win. Are you brave enough to enter the eerie graveyard of Pumpkin Bonanza?
As the screen loads up, you'll notice that the background is set in a disturbing looking graveyard. The gates are rusted and pumpkins are overtaking the graveyard with vines to show that this area is clearly out of control.
Along with the creepy imagery, a fog effect spreads across the screen to create even more of a sinister atmosphere.
High piano notes are contrasted with low bass sounds to create something straight out of a horror film. It's the perfect blend of mysterious and unsettling - which is exactly what you want in a Halloween slot.
Don't worry about complicated gameplay as Pumpkin Bonanza is entirely straightforward. All you have to do is set a bet and spin! There are only 5-reels with 10 paylines, so there's no complicated pay mechanics to learn.
Like in most Playtech titles, the menus and all the buttons can be found at the bottom of the screen. The spin button is to the far right with the autospin button just to the left of it.
Pumpkin Bonanza has an RTP of 95.51% with a high volatility level. The RTP is decent enough and just about the average standard, but the maximum payout is nothing special. Sadly, the maximum payout is 2,000x your stake which can be achieved by landing the pumpkin wild. Obviously, this isn't a huge amount and high rollers will be put off.
On the surface, Pumpkin Bonanza is a scary slot that is perfect for Halloween. The design is just creepy and builds up the perfect atmosphere with the sound and visuals.
Sadly, it doesn't deliver as the gameplay is very minimalist. There are only 2 real features and they don't deliver. The payout is also depressingly low at 2,000x your stake with many players being put off from this.
Of course, if you love Halloween and want something different, then we'd recommend giving this a spin but perhaps only a few.
