If you’re a horror movie fan, you might be familiar with the Paranormal Activity trilogy. This homemade saga was all about demons and poltergeists making a whole family’s life a mess with paranormal events going on and a tragic ending.
iSoftBet took this popular and groundbreaking saga and turned it into a video-slot, aimed to please all horror movie fans that also loved to spin the reels and get some money while at it.
Paranormal Activity is set on a 5-reel, 3-row grid –just like it is the case with most video-slot today– and it features an amazing 243 ways of winning. This slot holds a medium variance, so you shouldn’t be surprised to get consistent wins while you’re spinning the reels.
In order to redeem one of the paylines, you have to get three symbols of a kind placed at a winning disposition. The A, J, Q, K and 10 are the ones with the lowest coin-values attached to them, whilst the special Ouija board and video-camera hold the highest.
There is a Wild symbol represented by a ghostly and creepy child with dead black eyes, and it will substitute for all symbols in the reels except for the Bonus and Scatter.
These Bonus and Scatter symbols are both capable of granting you with one of the three sets of free spins and features that will most likely grant you with the biggest payouts of the entire game.
The Paranormal Free Spins feature will grant you with 5 free spins and a 1x multiplier that will rise up in value with each winning combination you happen to get. After the free spins are over, your total earnings can be multiplied to up to 5x its value.
The Possessed Free Spins feature will grant you with 10 free spins and randomly appearing Stacked Wilds that will fill in the needed gaps to redeem a winning payline.
Finally, the Demon Free Spins feature will give you a big enough 15 free spins number, during which a Demon symbol will appear on the reels.
This Demon symbol though will be a lot of help, since it has the power to transform any random symbol into a Wild symbol, thus making you reach winning paylines in an easier way.
Keep in mind that during these spins, whether it is the main game ones or the free spins, you will randomly get a spirit popping out off the screen with a chilling yell that will most likely make you jump out of your chair a little.
What we loved
The concept was very appealing to us, since we enjoyed the Paranormal Activity saga to the last point.
We can say without fear of exaggerating that this is also the scariest horror-themed slot we have played in years, so if you’re not in for this type of entertainment you might want to move on.
What we did not like
Like it is the case with most iSoftBet games, this one has very visually charged graphics that are somewhat difficult to keep up with.
We would’ve liked more minimalistic elegant graphics, but it looks like this is just the iSoftBet style.
We overall think that this slot is worth a try, only if you’re attracted to horror narratives! If your heart is easily scared, you should definitely not try this out. It is fair and good enough in terms of gameplay, but you shouldn’t expect big and juicy rewards.
Bottom line, Paranormal Activity is worth your time and money but your expectations should be realistic and somewhat low.
