The best Halloween-themed online pokies in 2020

Since Halloween is coming up, we have decided to rank up some of our favourite Halloween-themed online pokies that you might enjoy!

Ahh, the wonderful world of online pokies (or more commonly known to the rest of the world as slot games). Is there any other game so simple, yet deceptively complex and oh so very fun to play?

Witches Wild Brew by Booming Games

‘tis the season for more wicked deeds but with our first pick, we’re going right to our favourite Halloween trope – Witches! When you have dark melodies, sickly green bubbling cauldrons, and the Weird Sisters or an approximation of them, what could go wrong?


The online pokie is your basic 5×4 reel and that’s perfectly fine. Not everything needs to reinvent the wheel so to speak and this game does plenty to excite players. Their biggest highlight is definitely the graphics, but what gets us is the Bursting Wilds that turns itself into a Wild multiplier and up to 8 symbols into regular wilds.

It’s a simple game to whet your appetites for the more exciting games to come. Hold on to your broomsticks…

Curse of the Werewolf Megaways by Pragmatic Play

Werewolves are a horror classic. Combined with fan favourite Megaways, this online pokie by Pragmatic Play makes for a fun little spin! Set against a typical European town and a gothic soundtrack, Curse of the Werewolf Megaways is 6-reel multigrid symbols that hold up to 6 symbols that packs a surprising punch with the potential for wins of over 40,000x! The game features the titular werewolf, the local villagers and what looks to be a stereotypical tourist.


Notably, the game loses its cascade/reaction feature usually found in Megaways games for features like Free Spins, Mystery Symbols and spin modifiers. Best yet, the game comes in two spin modifiers – super spins and guaranteed win spins. A super spin drops stacks of high-value symbols onto the reels, while guaranteed win spins allows you to buy a huge win!

Now that’s a win in our books.  

Vampire Senpai by Quickspin

Now jiangshi aren’t western, coming from Chinese myths, but hey, they’re underworld ghouls that are feeding on the innocent. That counts as scary and suitably Halloween, right?

Confusing name aside – honestly this is a very unfortunate name for what is a Chinese monster on a weird Western-Japanese name mashup; what were the creators of this online pokie thinking? – these scary monsters aren’t just here for jump scares as they do influence the game greatly!


One of the best features of this online pokie is the way they made the Wild symbol a larger feature in the game. Our favourite is the Vampire Wild symbol, turning all adjacent humans into a jiangshi that turns other humans into jiangshi! Isn’t that cool?

Wicked Tales: Dark Red by Microgaming

Heavily wooded and forested areas make for suitably creepy atmosphere, and when you add in a bestial creature, that somehow adds to the horror factor. Well this isn’t just any old horror themed pokie, this is a fairytale where Little Red Riding Hood isn’t so little anymore, and the Big Bad Wolf is back for vengeance.


Our favourite feature is the Wandering Reels, a group of three reels that moves randomly to one of three positions in every round, increasing or decreasing the grid, making it more interesting as you spin. When you hit the moon Scatters, that’s when things get a lot more fun. This guarantees one of two features on the slot: Forest of Fortune Pick Bonus or Free Spins round. Choose wisely when that happens.   

Book of Shadows by Nolimit City

A Book of Shadows is traditionally a book used by Pagans and Witches as a diary and compendium for their thoughts, rituals and any spells that they come across. In this game, Book of Shadows is a high variance online pokey that is one of the best and unique occult-horror themed games created that any online pokies connoisseur would agree on.


You have your stylised graphics, suitably eerie music that sets the dour tone and some very impressive features to the game. What sets the game apart isn’t just the slot itself, but the extra features that come with it – Lucky Locks, Gamble 50/50, and the Gamble Wheel of Bonus.

These features allow you to not only adjust the rows via the Lucky Locks, any wins you get can also be wagered again for double or nothing on their Gamble 50/50. And if you can’t wait for that big win, you can always buy it with their Feature Buy option. That’s something we’ve not seen with other online pokies, so it’s definitely something new and exciting. For all those reasons, this is the game of the season!
