Peek A Boo is one of the slots which were recently released by Microgaming, and it’s a title which appears to be inspired by Halloween. Even though the slot has a certain connection to the Ghost Busters franchise, that’s only because the little kid, which is the main character in this slot, is dressed up as one of them. He appears ready to go to war against some very real and scary ghosts, but the symbols include plenty of delicious Halloween candy as well. Overall, it’s not your typical Halloween themed slot, so I feel like it has a chance because of that. It offers 40 lines normally, but it can switch to 1024 ways to win while in free spins mode. Stacked wilds, free spins and scatters are part of the game, as is a $10,000 jackpot.
Betting and Prizes
40 paylines are used to place bets and form combinations in Peek A Boo. They require 40 to 400 coins, with 1 to 10 coins per line used, depending on what the player wants from the game, and what he can afford. Coins have maximum denominations of $1, with the minimum set at $0.01. The maximum bet is valued at $400.
With five wild symbols on a payline, you will be rewarded with $10,000, which is only a 1,000x multiple. The fact that the wild is stacked can mean a lot though, as you would have multiple combinations formed at the same time.
Peek-a-Boo Slot Features
The main symbol, the one with a big feature attached and capable of awarding a big prize, is the stacked wild, which sports the game logo for its image. The base game has these stacked wilds on all the reels. You can use these to substitute for any symbol in the game, no exceptions, and to also form combinations that pay up to $10,000.
The way you trigger free spins here is not exactly standard. Whenever you land a Ghost Buster icon on the 3rd reel, you will notice that the kid will zap one ghost from each reel, if you have them present that is. A Ghost Meter is used to store the ghosts, and once you have at least 10 of them, you start the free spins. You can get up to 13 free spins this way.
The free spins are special not just because they don’t cost you anything. They also offer you 1024 ways to win instead of 40 paylines, and they have super stacked wilds on the last two reels. Spooky Respins are also mentioned, when you have enough scatter symbols on the first three reels, but not on the last two.
Theme & Design
It’s a design which fits the theme quite well, being appropriate for a kid mostly, with childish characters and with lots of sweets among the symbols. There are a couple of ghosts in Peek-A-Boo slot, but there is a main character as well, a kid dressed up as a ghost buster and holding a plastic gun.
Expect a game which works best if you play it when it’s Halloween. It’s unusual enough to work all year round though, plus it has some cool features.
