Graveyard Shift Slot Review

The team at Top Game (Pragmatic Play) has looked to Mexico’s Day of the Dead festival for inspiration for this game, and the results are absolutely fabulous. Dia de los Muertos, as the day is known, is full of colour and excitement, and so is this game. The Graveyard Shift slot game has a decidedly spooky and quirky look that is very hard to resist because it looks so original. More importantly, the game gives good wins at a reasonably frequent rate.

Top game has made Graveyard Shift slots game available on a large number of websites. The game can be played on most handheld devices as well. Some casinos also make it available for free.

Slot Structure

The Graveyard Shift slot game has five reels and 25 pay lines spread over three rows. There is also a mini-game available as an option, where players can gamble their wins to double or nothing. However, players who don’t want to be bothered by this option can enable the Autoplay mode so that they can get straight to the regular game. The game also has Bet Max and Fast Play options. Wagers start at 25p pe spin and go all the way up to £125 per spin which gives gamblers plenty of options to choose from.

Bonus Features 

The Treasure Chest symbol is the game’s Bonus symbol. The bonus round is triggered when at least three of these symbols land on the reels on an active pay line. Players can win up to 7,680 coins during this round which is a ‘pick ‘em game’ that takes place on a new screen. The quantum of the prizes depends upon the number of Bonus symbols that triggered the round and of course, on the player’s luck.

Free Spins 

The Free Spins are activated by the Scatter symbols which are that of a Jack O’ Lantern pumpkin. When the minimum three symbols land on the reels in any position then players get seven free spins. When four and five Scatters appear then the free spins are twenty and fifty respectively. What’s more, it is possible to win even more free spins during the feature and get a maximum hundred free spins if one is really lucky.

The Standard Wild Symbol 

The game has a Wild symbol that, like most other Wilds in slot games, can fill out winning combinations by taking the place of other symbols. However, it cannot replace the Scatter and Bonus symbols. It can appear on any of the reels.

The Highest Paying Reel Symbols 

The Zombie Princess is the game’s most valuable symbol, with five of the symbols on an active pay line giving a win of 3,000 coins. Getting two, three, or four of this symbol on a pay line will result in a payout of 10, 50, and 500 coins respectively.

There are also images of skulls wearing elaborate headgear, and these too have high value although they do not appear very often on the reels in the desired sequence.

Our Opinion 

We really enjoyed the quirky look and feel of this game. It was able to keep us entertained for a long time. What’s more, we thought that the Mariachi style music was especially entertaining. The bonus rounds and the gamble feature make the game even more interesting. Especially for people who enjoy taking risks (specially if their wins haven’t been good enough). We feel that this game has plenty to keep both casual gamblers and high rollers entertained. It will hopefully keep them enriched since this is a medium variance game. As such, we are more than happy to recommend this game from Pragmatic Play to our readers.
