Ghostbusters Slot Review
In 1984, Dan Ackroyd and Harold Ramis delivered one of the most iconic movies of the decade - Ghostbusters. It's a superb supernatural comedy movie and infinitely better than the 2016 rebooted version of the franchise. Thankfully with the IGT slot you can relive the days of Venkman, Ray, Egon and Winston as they battle to save New York from a giant marshmallow!
Ghostbusters slots is a 5 reel, 30 payline slot with features. Each spin costs 50 coins and the coin value can be set from between 1p and 5p meaning a cost of 50p to £2.50 a play. An autoplay option is available. The game features images and sounds from the original movie - and each spin is accompanied with Ray Parker Jr's iconic Ghostbusters soundtrack.
Ray and Egon are the highest paying Ghostbusters. Get 5 of a kind on a win line to receive x200 the line stake. Venkman will pay out x200 which is the same for Winston. Other symbols include Louis Tully, Ecto 1, proton packs and other various items of ghost busting equipment. Look out for the spooky wilds - they will pay out x500 if five appear on a win line.
Four Mystery Features
This Ghostbusters slot game boasts four mystery features which can activate after any spin. These features are a cash award, mulitplier, wild reels and extra wilds. In addition there's a Ballroom Busters Bonus which gives you the chance to win by shooting a proton pack at objects to locate hidden ghosts. It's probably the closest you'll get to the real thing! This round activates when two ghostbuster bonus symbols appear on the reels with one slimer!
There's also a second bonus game which is the Stay Puft Bonus. This activates when there are two ghostbuster bonus symbols alongside one Stay Puft bonus symbol. When this round triggers you get 8 free spins and the number of paylines increases to 40. Marshmallows may fall on to the reels during this bonus round - that's good news for you as they then become locked wilds. Different symbols and a different paytable come into play during this particular section of the game.
Who You Gonna Call?
Ghostbusters slots is just like the original film - lots of fun and worth revisiting time and time again. It does look a little dated compared to other movie slots, but then again the movie is 30 odd years old now! Perhaps the only down point is that the slot reminds us of a great film which will never have a third outing with the original cast.
If you're a big fan of this slot then check out the sequel - Ghostbusters Triple Slime - also from IGT. It offers 720 paylines and has plenty of bonus features.
