You know you’re going to be playing a good game when there’s a warning about it’s violent nature on the first splash screen. Of course we’d expect nothing less from an online slot based on the famous horror franchise, Nightmare on Elm Street.
This gory series of films created the cult character of Freddy Krueger and he featured in nine different films between 1984 and 2010. Krueger appears in the dreams of his victims and they never wake up…..
Keep the sound on and the first thing you’ll notice is the creepy music; if that doesn’t freak you out too much, leave it on and start playing the game. There are five reels and thirty paylines and the game really creates that scary atmosphere very effectively. Freddy in all his razor-fingered glory stands to the left of the reels and the main symbols are a selection of scared-looking characters from the movies. Minor symbols are blood-spattered 9, 10, J, Q, K and A.
Special symbols are a ‘Never Sleep Again’ bonus, a scatter which activates the free spins, a ‘Pick Me’ which triggers a mini-game and a silhouetted Krueger wild symbol.
Land three of the bonus symbols on the reels to play this mini-game; you are trying to stay awake and you must pick items such as coffee, a phone to call a friend or the television to help you. Once your eyes close it’s all over and you collect prizes based on how many items you chose.
This will be your reward when you land the wild symbol on reels one and five; several symbols will be shown to you and you can pick one to reveal a prize. If you’re lucky it may also offer another pick.
Loads of free spins are available here as follows:
- Three scatters – ten spins
- Four scatters – twenty spins
- Five scatters – thirty spins
Unfortunately there’s no multiplier here and you can’t re-trigger the feature.
Land the wild symbol on reel three and it will expand into a full size silhouette of Freddy Krueger which covers the entire reel. All wins that it contributes to on that spin will be subject to a 2x multiplier.
Two progressive jackpots are available in this slot; the smaller one is the Freddy Krueger jackpot and the larger of the two is the Nightmare On Elm Street jackpot. Both are awarded randomly but the more you bet, the more chance you’ll have of big money success.
This is not a game for kids, but they shouldn’t be playing an online slot anyway. It is however great creepy fun and there are more bonuses than you can shake a stick at. The opportunity to win the progressive jackpot is the icing on the cake.
