Getting started. Unlike our other games, this one will start up into attract mode. To begin, you need to select "new game" from the game menu or press F2.
Another change is the "Game Mode". From the menu you can select the type of game you wish to play, either "normal" or "free mode". In a normal game you will be given £10 credit, where the object is to win as much virtual cash as possible for a highscore and your own saticfaction. In Free Play, you can insert as much money as you want into the machine (imagine you have a bottomless wallet!!), but you cannot save a highscore.
In our previous game's you had a button to click to insert money.. In Halloween this button has gone - you can now click on the LED display for the same effect.
Machine Number 9!. Halloween Club is the latest fruit machine from Software Illusions. The game is based on a £250 jackpot club machine, and has a very spooky theme!
The feature game comprises of a 27 position wrap-a-round feature board, and a 10 position super board. Collect 2 pumpkin's to enter the superboard.
The aim of the game is to roll in a win, or collect 3 or 4 pumpkin symbols in a row to enter the feature game. Some key features of the reel game include:
3 pumpkins in a row will start the normal feature game.
4 pumpkins in a row will start the super feature game.
Where a win and pumpkin symbols land in combination on the winline, the win will be paid and the pumpkins ignored.
The table below shows the features of Halloween Club and what each one does.
When you obtain a win you are taken onto the cashladder, where you can then gamble higher and lower (1 to 12) or Exchange onto the feature game after one successful gamble. If you manage to gamble to £15, then you can exchange onto the Superboard!
Clicking on any of the reels will display a reelguide, indicating the exact position of the reels, useful when you have nudges!!
Nudges will be awarded randomly throughout the game - with the option of Skill nudges and random nudges!
This screen allows you to view all of the internal fruit machine meters, below is a table detailing what meters are available and what they all mean!
There is an option to reset all meters back to their default values.
The target percentage is set to 80% by default and cannot be altered.
The option screen allows you to do the following:
Set the speed at which the reels spin. This is useful if you either have a fast or a slow computer. There are three settings, fast, slow and random. Once you have found the optimum setting for your copmuter, there is no need to use this option again, your setting will be saved.
Turn the sound on and off. This option turns the in-game sound effects either on or off.
On the game menu you will find a "check for update" button. This will alert you if a new version of this game becomes available, and direct you to the new download.
When you have had enough virtual gambling, you can exit the game and submit your highscore, or you can click "Save and Exit" - this will allow you to continue from where you left off when you next start the game.
A new feature is the Internet Highscores. Our website holds worldwide highscores for all of our games. Take a look, if you are good enough you can submit your own highscore! Please only submit sensible names, and not swear words please! The highscore boards are available publicly from our website, where youngsters may be viewing. These options are available from the game menu.
