Pop Culture and the Ghostbusters Slot

Posted on March 28, 2013

Movie Magic
The Ghostbusters slot possibly stands alone in history. It is not every movie that becomes a pop culture classic let alone to go on to become a game as popular as Ghostbusters slot but now both the movie and the game may make history.
In the 80’s movie Ghostbusters, Dan Akroyd and others managed to transform scary to comedy and that, with its sequels, was destined to become a hit with the pop culture enthusiasts.

Today, that magical transformation of scary and comedy has been brought to the reels. In the game, that same magic is coupled with the excitement of a 5 reel, 30 pay line slot.

In an almost unique style, movie clips and hilarious one liners have been added to the action of the slot to bring the lighter side of the 80’s, an exciting twist.

As you would expect from a slot based on a movie, the reels are full of the main characters plus the ghouls, both randomly appearing on the reels to try to stop or create winning lines. The usual excitement of a slot is there but it is joined with a touch of humorous nostalgia.

Bonus Features
No popular modern slot is complete without a bonus feature and Ghostbusters slot does not disappoint with 2 such features.

The Ballroom Busters Bonus has you entering a ghostly ballroom, complete with your Proton pack. The object of the bonus, for best payouts, is to find each of the six ghostly characters hiding in the room. A task not as easy as it may seem considering you only have 5 spins to find all six. Do not worry though, there are payouts for any that are found.

The second bonus round features Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man. During this eight free spin bonus, 40 pay lines are featured. Apart from regular wins, after each spin, Marshmallow Man may randomly appear and any symbol he touches is transformed into a “wild” for the rest of the free spins.

This mixture of movie clips, nostalgia, humor and excitement, are sure to make the Ghostbusters slot even more popular than it already is.
