‘A Nightmare on Elm Street’ Slot Game (game review)

A Nightmare on Elm Street Slot

1, 2, Freddy’s coming for you… 3, 4 better lock your door… 5, 6 grab the crucifix… 7, 8 don’t stay up late… and so it goes.

888casino’s A Nightmare on Elm Street Slot is perhaps the most terrifying of all the slot games that I’ve played in recent years. True to form, it brings the dream slasher demon – Freddy Krueger to life in spectacular fashion.

This game is eerie to the nth degree. It is ominous, demonic, and terrifying. Now, I’ve played my fair share of horror-themed games, but no slot game comes close to A Nightmare on Elm Street.

Once you’re ready to take the plunge, you better be sure about your decision. The minute you click play, the creepy audio will permeate the room, and Freddy’s monstrous voice will fill your head with doom and gloom.

Are You Spooked Out Yet?

Now, before you get spooked out know that there are some pretty cool elements in this game. For example:

  • 5 Wilds on an active payline will multiply your total bet by 10,000
  • The Pick Me Feature appears whenever the Wild comes up on reel 1 and reel 5 at the same time
  • The Expanding Wild appears on reel 3

So, how does the game play out? Well, for starters, it is dark… Really dark. There are several basic shades in the game including green, red, and black. These colours are fused together in a crafty way to highlight the tension, angst, and dread that you can feel with the music.

It’s not a game where you advance through different levels, although there are many different components to it. It’s like you can feel Freddy peeling through layers of skin, sinew, and muscle as you continue playing.

The game itself is set against a Jeepers Creepers style backdrop with 5 spinning reels and 30 lines.

You’ve Got to Lay Down the Law…

Now I’m not trying to put you guys off, but it is one scary game. If you’ve never played online slots before, you may want to check out some video slots basics to get you started. It probably won’t help your confidence level in this game because it is so hauntingly scary.

The Freddy Krueger in this game isn’t quite the same as the one played by Robert Englund back in the original Nightmare on Elm Street series. This dream slayer is the same guy/apparition that featured in the latest rendition of this age-old fright fest.

Now let’s give you some reasons to play this slot game. For starters, it features not 1, but 2 progressive jackpots. These include the Nightmare on Elm Street jackpot and the Freddy Krueger jackpot. If you can survive one, you’ll probably survive the other as well.

Luckily, the jackpots are randomly triggered and no special skills or winning combinations are needed.

The game has some pretty cool features, and I quite enjoyed them. There are plenty of free spins, and they are activated once you hit at least 3 scatter symbols. You get awarded 10 free spins with 3 scatter symbols, 20 free spins with 4 scatter symbols, and 30 free spins with 5 scatter symbols. The scatters are valid anywhere on the spinning reels.

Don’t Fall Asleep Playa!

Want some more? Be careful what you ask for…

There are 2 particularly frightening games – The Pick Me Game and the Never Sleep Again Bonus Game. When the wild symbol appears simultaneously on reel 1 & 5, the Pick Me Game kicks in.

There is also a Never Sleep Again Bonus Game. Now this one requires your undivided attention. Simply land 3 bonus symbols anywhere on reel 2, reel 3, or reel 4. Now, your eyes are going to feel gritty because this requires you to stay awake – wide-awake. Remember, you have to keep Freddy Krueger out of your dreams because once he enters you will die.

With that said and done, you should play this game in full-screen mode, and enjoy HD functionality and spectacular audio. It’s creepy, and you will love it.
