Ghostbusters is a 5 Reel, 30 payline slot. The slot itself is a reasonably low to mid variance slot, meaning you get lots of play time but the big payouts are few and far between. Generally the slot is about fun, excitement, coupled with some excellent features and outstanding accompanying music.
Ghostbusters has a great combination of graphics and randomly awarded action. Musically Ghostbusters is a stand out slot machine. The classic Ray Parker Jnr soundtrack plays alongside the action on the reels, taking you right back to 1984. This is such a good piece of audio that the game needs little else to create an awesome atmosphere. All the graphics used in Ghostbusters are good, especially for the fans of the 1984 film. The most exciting part is that all the graphics used in Ghostbusters are made of real photos of the movie characters.
There are four randomly awarded bonuses in the Ghostbusters slot machine. The first is the random award, where Slimer pops up, and awards you with a cash prize.
The second is the random wild reel feature, this sees Slimer puking on the reels. You won’t mind the mess however as once the mess has gone, the effected reels will be turned completely wild. The last Slimer mystery bonus sees him appearing and gifting you with a multiplier, which could be as much as four times, on all your prizes achieved on the spin. Finally, the only bonus not to feature Slimer sees a bunch of ghostly hands fly across the slot’s reels to randomly turn a number of symbols into wilds, thus adding to the winning potential of any board.
There are two great bonus games in Ghostbusters. The first is called Ballroom Busters, which is activated with two generic scatters and the Slimer scatter on the middle three reels. This sees you move to a second screen bonus where you get to fire your beam lasers at different parts of the ballroom, to uncover multipliers, with the top prize coming if you can bag the little green ghost himself.
The second bonus is a free spin game. Stop in the two generic scatters together with the Stay Puft marshmallow man scatter to activate this round, which takes place on a second set of reels, with an advanced pay-table and forty pay-lines. Here burning chunks of marshmallow will drop onto the reels and stick in place, acting as wild symbols that can help you complete your wins.
The Ghostbusters slot is good fun to play with numerous features and sticks close to the plot of the film upon which it is based on. In fact, it has everything that video slot games should have.
