Play The Haunted Horseman slots for free or real money - instant play game
Inspired by the gruesome legend of Sleepy Hollow, High 5 Games launched The Haunted Horseman, a 5-reel, 99-payline video slot that will send shivers down your spine. If you have no fear upon hearing tales of missing villagers, a headless man on horseback, night terrors, murder and mayhem, you will surely enjoy The Haunted Horseman.
Track the evil decapitated man as he seeks his next victim, and claim rewards for stopping him. The Haunted Horseman is a dark slot, but entertaining for the fans of the horror genre. It sports a traditional 5x3 reel grid and the number of lines can be adjusted to the maximum of 99.
The logo of the game is beautifully designed; you can see it above the reels against a black forest and a weird green glow, but you can also see it as one of the high paying symbols on the reels and the Wild card. Along with the Haunted Horseman logo, symbols such as a blonde damsel, a fair brunette, a man in a red frame and another fellow with a lantern make out the paytable. Card values A, K and Q offer the lowest multipliers, and if you see the pumpkin on the reels known that it is the Scatter. The Wild will not appear on the first reel, but anywhere else it will replace non-matching symbols and help complete payouts.
Three or more pumpkins anywhere on screen will award free spins. The number of freebies depends on the number of pumpkins - you will receive 3 bonus spins per pumpkin, so at least 9. The possibility to re-trigger free spins in disabled and free play is conducted across a different set of reels. A new set of reels doesn’t really affect the gameplay - it simply refreshes the view.
The Haunted Horseman incorporates a Tumbling Reels feature, which is quite lucrative in itself, even though some don’t see it as a special bonus. As you click on the Spin button, the symbol will fall down, landing on top of each other. In case of a win, the affected symbols will disappear and make room for other symbols to come from above and fall into their places. Now, a new configuration of symbols is formed and the possibility of another win is open. You can benefit from consecutive wins without having to press Spin again and there will be no charge to your balance. H5G calls it Mystery Bucks - you can’t predict them!
The Hunted Horseman is a video slot with medium to high variance and offers instant prizes of up to 1,000 coins. Too bad The Haunted Horseman can only be played on desktop; it would be great to see the realistic graphics on a tablet or smartphone. The game does boast a return rate of 96%, which is excellent for a H5G slot as they tend to be on the low side when it comes to the RTP values.
