Grave Yard Shift Slots

Grave-Yard-ShiftGrave Yard Shift is one of the most fun games I’ve seen to come with a theme that revolves around monsters and all things scary. Top Game included a lot of colorful characters on the reels of the slot, most of them skeletons that are very well dressed, the clothes ranging from dresses, to fancy suits and things that are normally worn by Mexican singers, kings, queens or soldiers. The quality of the symbols is the one that helps it the most, and makes it very easy to enjoy.

You may place bets on up to 25 win lines in Grave Yard Shift. The game has 5 reels, free spins, bonus games, scatters and wilds. As for the payouts, regular combinations pay up to $15,000.

Features of Grave Yard Shift

The feature list in Grave Yard Shift appears to be quite generous, both when it comes to the various types of symbols which are used, and in the results of their appearance. Wilds, scatters, bonus symbols and free spins are all part of the list.

The image of some sort of Soldier Skull is the wild feature in this case. To make good use of it, the wild needs to make its appearance on a payline where a couple of matching symbols already exist. The wild will take the same role as them, so that a combination can be formed or improved by it. Wilds don’t pay directly and they don’t substitute for scatter or bonus symbols.

Free Games Feature

The Carved Pumpkin symbol is the scatter feature, and that’s why you can get free spins from it simply by having it present in a minimum of three locations. The number of scatters that are present will determine how many free spins are triggered.

7, 20 or 50 free spins can be won in this game, the trigger for them being 3, 4 or 5 scatter symbols, respectively. You can retrigger the free spins by landing another 3+ scatters.

Bonus Game

The slot also gives you a chance to win a prize that is randomly chosen. Its trigger is a bonus symbol with an image of a treasure chest. Landing a minimum of three Treasure Chests on an active line, in any position, will bring you a random number of bonus points.

You can win 24 to 120 points if the feature was triggered by three symbols, 120 to 600 if there were four and 1,200 to 6,000 points when all five were in place.

Betting options and jackpots

The bets don’t get too complicated in this case. You have an equal number of coins to use as the number of lines that are active. The 25 coins can have values of up to $5 each one, the maximum wager being at $125.

Rewards reach top values of $15,000 (3,000 coins) from one of the regular symbols, or up to $30,000 (6,000 bonus points) through the bonus game.

Design and symbols

Though most of the symbols are just images of various skulls and skeletons that are decorated in various ways or dressed as different characters, the game manages to be very charming and easy to enjoy. The quality is certainly there, and Top Game did an excellent job at making this game a perfect choice for Halloween.
