See how far your curiosity can take you tonight…
In the ‘House of Fun’ slot game, there is indeed a creepy story unwrapping, and you’re to become one of its characters!
Hey, we all love creepy tales, don’t we? Playing the ‘House of Fun’ video slot developed by Betsoft Gaming studios, you become a part of the story which starts with a young couple and their dog looking for help in a sort of the Addams-family-like mansion after their car breaks down nearby.
From the technical point of view, ‘House of Fun’ is a 5-reel slot machine with up to 30 paylines possible, and a set of attractive bonus features to benefit from. The gameplay is preceded by a short film clip that introduces you to the plotline. Then we proceed to the gaming action accompanied by rhythmic yet somewhat cacophonic music and various sound effects you would normally expect from that kind of game, with the 5×3 reel grid being integrated into a thick stone wall and the spooky house itself visible behind it.
The selection of the slot’s regular symbols includes 8 icons associated with the slot’s theme, three of which have the characters of the game depicted on them (those from the house), as well as a gargoyle, a Cheshire-like looking cat, an antique mirror, a candelabra, and a portrait of an unknown man. None of the three protagonists can be found on the reels, and there are no wild symbols in the game either, but there are at least 3 bonus features triggered by corresponding symbols, the latter being a joker-faced door-knocker, a secret box (guess what’s inside), and an apparently insane guy wearing a top hat.
The Escape bonus is launched whenever you land no fewer than three door-knocker symbols on an active payline, and what happens next is you discover yourself in a room with five doors. Start opening them to find the one through which you can leave the house. Luck is something you won’t probably need here, as every time you pick the wrong door, a Jack-in-the-Box emerges instantly to reward you with a prize, meaning you may want to stay in this room for a longer time. And yes, you can click several times on each door so as to increase your winning potential.
Land three or more secret box icons on any spots on the reels, and the free-spins sequence gets launched! As long as this sequence is active, the 3rd reel will stay wild until the end of the round. Further, whenever occurring to land three insane hat guy symbols on payline 1 to 3, the second picking game starts in which you have to select the items offered. When you’re done, click ‘Collect’, and there you go!
