Yggdrasil Gaming’s Pumpkin Smash slot is a colourful affair, based around a ‘Day of the Dead’ Halloween theme.
There are five reels and 20 pay-lines set against a purple haunted house entrance, with pumpkins lining the steps.
It’s a medium variance game with an RTP of 96.2%.
The symbols are grinning sugar-skulls and off-kilter versions of the playing card suits – clubs, spades, hearts and diamonds, bonus icons and wilds popping up at random.
As we’ve come to expect from Yggdrasil slots, the title sequence is vivid and engaging. A grave cracks open and sugar-skull pumpkins come shooting out into the stratosphere, where they explode.
If you play with sound, you’ll be treated to some traditional Mexican-sounding music which is actually rather good!
There are also two bonus features to boost the fun!
Matching 2-5 bonus symbols in the base game will earn you the corresponding amount of pumpkins in the Pumpkin Smash Bonus game. You then, you guessed it, smash the pumpkins to reveal prizes. The more pumpkins, the more prizes, with up to 20 prizes per pumpkin.
If you are in the Free Spins mode, matching 1-5 bonus symbols will again open the same Pumpkin Smash bonus game, where you can win additional free spins and up to 14,000 coins!
You can play Pumpkin Smash from as little as 10p, all the way up to £100 a spin.
Select your line bet amount and embrace the Day of the Dead theme as you enter a world of grinning pumpkins and potential prizes.
The low-value symbols are the usual 9, 10, J, Q, K, A but rendered in a jagged jewel-coloured style, to match the Mexican theme.
Grinning sugar-skulls are the high-value symbols and offer decent pay outs, and there’s a wild symbol which substitutes for all others apart from the bonus symbol.
The bonus symbol opens up two bonus rounds, one in the base game and one in free spins mode.
Both bonus rounds are pumpkin games, where the smashing occurs to help you reveal prizes including free spins, multipliers, and juicy pay outs of up to 14,000 coins!
