Games By Daditz / October 27, 2017 Share Tweet Share Halloween is just around the corner and software developers have been busy this October to launch video slots which will spice up the holiday celebration. One of them is Malta-based Yggdrasil Gaming, the software developer well-known for their visually superb slots which provide players with innovative and rewarding bonus features. Their Halloween treat this October is Pumpkin Smash, a video slot which will not send shivers down your spine, but will surely provide you with loads of entertainment and opportunities to win. The brand new slot title by Yggdrasil is inspired by Day of the Dead, the famous Mexican holiday dedicated to family and friends who have passed away. If you are not familiar with Mexican customs and tradition, you may be surprised with the imagery of the game which features sugar skulls and playing card suits in vibrant colours. The developer added the carved pumpkin to the symbols thus creating a one of a kind fusion of Day of the Dead and Halloween slot players will surely enjoy. As for bonus features, Pumpkin Smash features the regular Wild and Pumpkin Bonus symbol which will improve players’ winning chances. Wild occurs on all the reels to substitute for regular symbols and help you win bigger prizes. Land at least two Pumpkin Bonus icons on the reels and you will trigger the Smash Bonus game during which you can win free spins, multipliers and cash prizes going up to 2,000 coins. When 3 Pumpkin Bonus symbols hit the reels regardless of their position, the free spins feature is triggered with multipliers between 2x and 7x active. Jonas Strandman, Head of Slots at Yggdrasil Gaming, said: Opening a gift to see what is inside is a popular feature in all types of games, and we have integrated this mechanic in an innovative new fashion in Pumpkin Smash. The bonus hits quite frequently with the pumpkins regularly containing free spins while the slot combines simple rules and a familiar concept, which makes it a great game for beginners, adds Strandman. Visually stunning in dazzling colours accompanied by a captivating mariachi tune to provide players with an engaging Day of the Dead holiday feel, Pumpkin Smash was launched alongside a special Halloween Mystery Cash Race. Players will have a chance of winning one of 1,000 cash prizes on any spin they make on Pumpkin Smash between October 27 and November 1.
