Welcome to the House of Doom; a brand new online and mobile slot from Play N’ Go. As the name gives away, this one isn’t for the faint hearted! Prepare for a fast-paced and atmospheric game with a loud rock soundtrack and a tremendously creepy haunted house setting. It’s darker than your average online slot, but you needn’t be a doom metal fan to enjoy this game; the music fits superbly and this combination of hard rock, dark graphics and an intense theme creates a thoroughly entertaining combination.
House of Doom features 5 reels, 3 rows and 10 pay lines. There are two exciting bonus games and thrilling special features within the main game too.
The spooky female character is the wild symbol; she substitutes all symbols except for the scatter (represented by the skull or the House of Doom logo). In addition to these special symbols are high value icons such as the ram, rose, cross and star. The lower value symbols are your typical playing card icons.
Say hello to Hellgate in the main game; this is a special feature whereby one reel is selected at random during each spin. The beauty of this is that if you land a wild on a highlighted reel, it will expand and replace all the other symbols on that reel. This makes each main game spin even more thrilling. But beware, this slot is volatile (it’s not called House of Doom for nothing) – so you can be waiting around a while before hitting a successful Hellgate or the bonus features.
Land 3 House of Doom scatters and you will activate 10 free spins; the main bonus game of this electrifying online slot. During Doom Free Spins, the House of Doom scatter transforms into a wild symbol. Land 3 or more of them will activate 1 extra free spin per symbol.
An added bonus during Doom Spins is that Hellgate remains active, only this time between 2 and 5 reels are highlighted, increasing the chances of those wild symbols expanding. Both the regular wild and the wild House of Doom scatter will expand on highlighted reels.
The second bonus game is named Skulls of Abyss. Landing 3 skull scatters will trigger this bonus, with 15 skulls appearing on screen. It’s a click and reveal game, whereby you must select a skull to reveal a prize. It’s possible to win cash prizes as well as the Doom Spins feature here.
We were pleasantly surprised at House of Doom, which turns out to be a definite contender for top rock slot in line with the likes of NetEnt’s Motorhead. Gameplay is as thrilling as the theme; as we mentioned, this is a volatile slot but of course, this means that when you do hit the bonuses you can win super big. Perhaps this isn’t for the amateur slot player but it’s certainly an enjoyable game for the braver punter.
