Ghost Rider Video Slot
Based on the Marvel comic and movie of the same name, Ghost Rider is a 5 reel, 20 payline online slot produced by software giant Playtech. The intro to the game will send a shiver down your spine as the Ghost Rider appears amidst the fog in a graveyard setting, transforms into the legendary flaming skeleton and mounts his motorcycle, ready to take on the evil that lurks in the darkness.
The graphics are highly impressive for a Playtech slot, but then again, as with the other Marvel Slots, they always are. The game play is smooth as you'd expect but the base game symbols do get a little boring, that is until they spring to life in animation which signals one of the great slots features has been triggered or a big win has been hit.
The Ghost Hunt Bonus feature is activated when all five reels have been activated. Each reel is activated when the bonus symbol appears in the middle position on it. The reel will then remain active as you play awaiting the activation of the rest in order to launch the bonus feature.
Once this has been triggered, Ghost Rider will appear, speeding along the highway on his motorcycle as ghosts appear on the screen. It's your job to help out by shooting these down with the 10 shots allocated to you. Each time you are successful in shooting a ghost you will receive up to 3x your original wager, and with a minimum of 7 ghosts appearing you have potential to win huge multipliers for your bets.
Also be on the lookout for the scatter symbol which is the Ghost Rider logo as 3 or more of these situated in any position across the reels will activate the Free Spins feature. In this game you will be awarded 10 free spins, with a 3x multiplier and be given the opportunity to earn an additional 10 free spins with a 3x multiplier if 3 or more scatters appear during this round. The number of spins you can earn is unlimited, which means so is the winning potential.
During the Free Spins feature, the Ghost Rider wild symbol expands, covering the whole reel to increase your wins. There are 3 expanding wilds per free spin which can result in some mega wins.
Like the Ghost Rider franchise in Marvel's comics, the Ghost Rider online slot will probably never be a wide player favourite, but it's not a bad game and with the potential for big payouts when the features are activated, it's definitely worth a spin. Like the other Playtech Marvel slots, it is also linked to the Marvel progressive jackpot network, so a big win could just change your life.
