If you thought it was scary at the theme park haunted house, then nothing can quite prepare you for the terrifying House of Fun from Betsoft. This one even has a back story behind it, which plays out in the opening video sequence for you. It tells the tale of Paul and Jane and their family dog, who are all heading out on a road trip together. Unfortunately, Paul’s car gets a puncture in one of its tires, and they need to stop and seek out help. An old man informs them to check for help at the House of Fun…but, they should also be wary of their time visiting it.
It seems as though Paul and Jane aren’t able to escape the terrifying house so instantly and instead must endure whatever it throws at them before they can find help. This plays out in the most splendid fashion, with the game featuring exceptional 3D graphics from Betsoft, that the developer has become synonymous with.
Paul and Jane will stand by the reels as you spin them, watching on in terror as things come to life and animate themselves right in front of their eyes. Plus, there’s a very theme park/carnival-sounding piece of music that plays while you’re gaming, adding to the overall effect. So, what else does this Betsoft slot provide?
Be Prepared for the Scares
The game itself is setup in a very standard video slot way, featuring five reels and three rows worth of a layout in total. This shouldn’t look unfamiliar in any way to regular slot gamers. Alongside this design, the developer has chosen to add a total of 30 pay lines into the game. These lines haven’t been set in place, so you can customize them easily with the ‘Select Lines’ buttons. You can also change the value of the wager that you bring into play on these lines. First of all, you need to select a specific coin value by using the button in the bottom-left corner of the screen. There, you’re able to choose between values of 1 cent and $1. Afterwards, the bet per line can be changed with the relevant + and – buttons, with between one and five coins able to be brought into play. This means that with all lines active and everything at its peak, the maximum overall wager possibility in House of Fun stands at $150 per spin.
Betsoft is well-known for providing high-quality graphics and animations, and House of Fun is no different in this respect. Instead, it presents you with a very dark and almost gothic setting, with statues and a creepy house structure in the background. Meanwhile, the five reels of the game is what contains the slot’s various symbols. First of all, there’s the house cat, which is joined by the symbol of the painting of a man. Then come three symbols of inhabitants of the House of Fun – each of them looking crazier than the last. One of the statues also provides a symbol in the game, while an elegant candelabra provides the next. You’ll also get to see a symbol of a decorative mirror, while the symbol of the madman is the slot’s highest-paying standard symbol. Should you spin five of him onto a winning pay line, you’ll receive a reward of 600 times your stake.
There’s Fun to Be Had Wherever You Go
So, how does the House of Fun become more…fun? With Betsoft’s special features, of course. And speaking of the madman symbol previously, this also operates as a special feature trigger. You need to spin three or more of these into view on pay lines one, two or three to activate the Mad Click Me Feature. This round basically gives you the opportunity to click on different parts of the screen and win rewards. Continue clicking until you reveal the ‘Collect’ icon. At this point, all of your winnings from the bonus round will be added to your balance and the bonus feature comes to an end.
Make sure that you watch out for the symbol of the Jack-in-the-Box, too. This is the game’s scatter symbol, and whenever three or more of them show up anywhere, you’ll activate the game’s Jack Free Spins round. Well all love freespins features in slot games, right? Well, this one also has an extra benefit for you. The House of Fun freespins round always has its central reel as a wild reel. This gives you more opportunities to form winning combinations across the reels.
Finally, one other thing that Betsoft has chosen to include in House of Fun, is the Escape Bonus Round. You’ll need to spin three or more of the door knocker icon into view on an active pay line so that this round can become active. You’ll need to help Paul and Jane escape the house by clicking on doors. Whether the door you choose leads to a path out and a reward or into another pit of madness and zany objects is entirely dependent on your own decision-making.
