It’s dynamic, spooky and electrifying. Peek-a-boo is part of the “Halloween” batch Microgaming introduced to the public in October of 2015. Some new cool looking features were added to their portfolio with this release. It seems like when they got back to the drawing board they certainly took a different standpoint. It didn’t take them long before amazing slots started to go out from Microgaming’s HQ and on the World Wide Web. Slots fans are insatiable when it comes to well-designed themed video slots, especially when it’s made by some of the best people in the industry. This slot game is a remake of another slot game with the same title, however, that one is a 3 reel slot only.
We’re going to zap ghosts and gather candy. It’s time to trick or treat!
Peek-a-Boo is a 5 spinning reel slot featuring 4 rows of symbols. It has 40 fixed paylines during base, but during free spins the slot turns into a 1024 Ways game providing you with considerable increase of chances to win. It has a high RTP and a rather high hit rate as well which makes it appealing to both beginners and seasoned players. However, the bet range may not let the two groups experience Peek a Boo in their own way. That being said, the coin value can be set as low as 0.01, but because the number of activated paylines is fixed to 40 most casual players won’t be able to unlock each and every cook feature the slot can offer. Passionate players can set the coin value at 0.25 and place between 1 and 10 coins per every payline adding up to a max bet of 100.
If you’re a fan of the epic movie Ghostbusters you’re going to love Peek-a-Boo for sure. As a player you want to see as many as possible Wild Symbols which come in the form of Peek-a-Boo’s logo. It will substitute for any other symbol to form a winning line. Players love Free Spins, let’s face it, who doesn’t? Usually the Scatter Symbol is the one that pours free spins all over the players, but with Peek-a-Boo that’s not the case.
Instead of featuring a Scatter Symbol Microgaming devised a new feature which to be honest we haven’t come across until now. The Ghostbuster symbol shows up on the 3rd reel and it will zap 1 ghost per reel. The counter of zapped ghosts can go up to 10. Whenever the counter reaches its maximum the player is granted 10 Free Spins. During these free spins the game turns into 1024 Ways slot game.
Another distinctive feature of Peek-a-Boo is the Spooky Reels. Whenever the player wins with 3 symbols positioned on the first 3 reels, the 4th and the 5th reel re-spin with the purpose to bring a 4 or a 5 symbol win. This way you clearly know how close you are to getting the much needed free spins.
All in all Peek-a-Boo certainly fits the Halloween theme. The graphics and audio are with high quality as always. It’s easy to realize that Microgaming’s team really enjoyed in designing and producing this game. You don’t have to anticipate Halloween to get a taste of this video slot. If you don’t want to be tricked you better play the game and be treated.
