A Nightmare on Elm Street Slot Review
Freddy Kreuger is often regarded as the top horror movie character of all time. He made his big screen debut in 1984 in Wes Craven's A Nightmare on Elm Street. Since then there have been numerous sequels, a TV series and a reboot. The movie is also the theme for a 5 reel 30 pay line slot that you can play at Fantastic Spins.
The first thing that strikes you when you load up A Nightmare on Elm Street slots is that it comes with a warning. The slot includes clips from the movie and the symbols on the slot involve some of Freddy's victims. Basically if you're not a fan of horror movies then this is one game that you might want to avoid.
Scatter & Wilds
Overlooking the gruesome images and haunting noises that accompany the game, how does A Nightmare on Elm Street fare as a slot? Actually it's not too bad. You can play from 1 to 30 lines and wager between 1p and 25p a line (max bet is £7.50). There's an autoplay feature which lets you play between 10 and 25 spins without interruption.
The game has the usual Scatter and Wild features, plus a special expanding wild on the third reel when Freddy materialises from the the mist. Additionally there's a Never Sleep Again Bonus Game and Pick Me Game. Both of these give you the chance to pick up bigger prizes with the former running over 4 stages as you try and stay awake so that Freddy doesn't catch up with you.
Unusually the slot has, not one but, two progressive jackpots - the Freddy Krueger Jackpot and the Nightmare on Elm Street Jackpot. These jackpot prizes are awarded randomly and no symbol combinations are necessary. At time of writing the Freddy pot was close to £3000 whilst the other was well over £15K.
Although we're not fans of horror and admittedly have not seen any Freddy Krueger movie, the slot was pretty good. There's suspense and tension as you play - which is a good sign that the slot is doing it's job. Without that atmosphere then the slot would be just like any other basic 5 reel game.
A Nightmare on Elm Street slots is available to play on Dragonfish powered slots and bingo sites including Costa Games, Wicked Jackpots, Wink Slots, Robin Hood Bingo and Woolly Bingo.
