Jonny Specter, which is a slot machine coming out of the Microgaming labs, is quite obviously designed to look like a title from the Ghostbusters franchise, without actually using the official license for it. You get a main character that goes by the name of Jonny Specter, a guy that hunts ghosts. You see all sorts of possessed objects on those reels, everything being done in a cartoon design style that will work well enough for this sort of slot. The features provide you with free games, bonus games, wilds and scatters, to keep you occupied. You can win up to $7,500 apparently, while using wagers on 20 lines.
Betting and Prizes
To start with, you should pick the coin denomination. You may take it from $0.01 to $0.50. You can then choose how many coins each line gets, the maximum number being 5. Line bets of up to $2.50 can form this way, which would mean that you would be able to wager $50 per spin with all 20 lines in play.
The Jonny Specter Logo pays the biggest amount in the game, a 3,000x multiple that could turn into 15,000 coins. They will be worth at most $7,500.
Jonny Specter Slot Features
For wild symbols, the slot uses something that is called Wandering Wild. You see a Ghost that moves around, and which chooses symbols at random and turns them into wilds. You get only one wild per spin in the base game, and that’s by no means guaranteed. The free spins can do better though.
Speaking of the free spins to trigger this particular feature you need a Dead Ghost icon, shown in crosshairs, to appear as a scatter in multiple positions. Cash rewards from it can reach 150x total bet. Get 3 or more of these symbols, and you also get 13 free spins where all wins are doubled in value. You can even retrigger free spins as you play through the initial batch. A random reel will be haunted and will become a wild during the free spins.
Should the Mansion icon appear on the 5th reel, a bonus game can start up, the Ghost Busting Bonus. You have to bust one of the three ghosts that are showing, to win one of the prizes.
Theme & Design
The Ghostbusters franchise has served as inspiration for plenty of slot machines, and Jonny Specter is one of those games, even if it doesn’t use the name officially. It still is a ghostbusting themed slot machine, with images of objects that are possessed, with ghosts, with our hero and his lovely assistant.
I appreciated the look of the game, funny even without a great design behind it. It has only symbols which are themed, it offers enough features, but its payouts of only 3,000x are too low.
