25 line slotPrepare for a wild Halloween night

The objective of playing Halloween Fortune II is to get a winning combination of symbols on the reels. The game also offers you the chance to win Free Games with an Increasing Multiplier. This casino game is among the most popular slots at William Hill Casino, ranking alongside online blackjack as a true player favourite!

How to Play:

  • Choose the stake for each payline using the +/- buttons below the Line Bet Field.

Note: The slot is played with 25 fixed paylines. Therefore, the Total Bet = Line Bet x 25.

  • Press Spin when you have selected your bet. This will start the game.
  • Click Auto Play to choose a number of spins to be played automatically. A Stop button appears when Auto Play is on. Click it if you wish to switch off Auto Play.
  • Press the Turbo Mode button if you wish to speed up the reel animations for faster play. Press the same button again if you wish to turn off Turbo Mode.

Note: When the reels have come to rest, any winning combinations will be clearly highlighted on screen.  The total win from the spin will be displayed in the Win Field.

Note: All payouts are listed on the Paytable, which can be accessed via the Info button. Line Wins are calculated x the Line Bet. Scatter Wins x the Total Bet.

Info Pages:

Click Info to access the Paytable and other reference information. You can change the pages by using the arrows on the bottom right of the screen. Press Back to return to the reels. The Info Pages are described below:

Paytable – provides a list of payouts for all winning combinations.

Free Games – gives information on the rules and special features of Free Games.

Paylines – displays the positions of all 25 paylines as they would appear on the reels.

Paylines:

Halloween Fortune II slot is played with 25 fixed paylines. Line Wins consist of matching symbols falling on these paylines, from left to right across the reels.

Please note that the Line Bet and Total Bet are different. The Line Bet is the stake placed on each payline. The Total Bet is equal to the Line Bet x 25.

About Payouts:

You can find full payout information on the Paytable. The payout figures shown for Line Wins are multiplied by the Line Bet. The payout figures for Scatter Wins are multiplied by the Total Bet.

You will only be paid for the highest value combination of symbols on each payline. Payouts for winning combinations on different paylines are added up and paid out as a total.

Line Wins must form a chain of at least three symbols on a payline starting on Reel 1.

Wild Symbols:

Wild Symbols (Pumpkin) can stand in for all other symbols (except Scatter) to make the highest paying winning combination on a payline.

Wild Symbols also have a separate payout if they form their own unique Line Win.

Stacked Symbols:

The symbols representing the three witches are Stacked Symbols. This means that they can cover more than one position on a reel, even though they are made up of a single image. Each reel position is calculated individually if the Stacked Symbols are involved in a Line Win.

Scatter Symbols:

Scatter Symbols (Halloween Fortune Logo) do not need to be on paylines to form winning combinations. If two or more appear in any position on the reels after a spin, you will earn a payout (x Total Bet).

Three or more Scatter Symbols in any position on the reels will also award Free Games with an Increasing Multiplier.

Free Games:

Press the Click To Start button (replaces Spin) when Free Games have been awarded. A screen will appear explaining that you have been awarded 10 Free Games with increasing Multiplier. Press Continue to start the Free Games.

The Free Games will start playing through automatically. The centre position of Reel 3 is covered with a Wild Symbol for each spin. This will act the same way as a regular Wild Symbol, substituting in Line Win combinations etc.

All winning payouts achieved in Free Games will be multiplied by the current Multiplier. The Multiplier will start at x2 and increase by +1 for every two spins. Therefore, wins from the first two spins will be doubled, tripled from the next two spins and so on. The Increasing Multiplier is shown in the table below:

Please note:

  • Free Games cannot be retriggered. However, if three or more Scatter Symbols appear on the reels you will still receive the Scatter Win payout.
  • Free Games will be played with the same Line Bet as the triggering spin.

When all Free Games have finished, a summary screen will appear detailing the total win from Free Games and the spin that awarded the feature.

How to play casino games

Here's a rundown of some of our most popular online casino games, including how to play them, and which offers the highest payouts.

Online slots

Online slots are played more than any other online casino games. They’re relatively simple to play, which makes them a great option for beginners. Slots can also offer large payouts, particularly for a jackpot win.

Playing slots online is very straightforward. The simplest form of online slots are three-reel slots, which are based on the traditional fruit machines you may have seen in arcades. In these slots, you’ll see three columns and three rows of symbols, with the middle row being the payline. You place your bet and spin the reel, and if you get a winning combination, you win the amount stated on the paytable.

There are many other kinds of slots online available at William Hill Canada, such as five-reel slots and video slots, but they essentially work in the same way. While the odds of winning at slots are slimmer than other online casino games, they do allow you to play with small stakes on a wide variety of slots. Slots with a jackpot offer a larger prize pool, so let’s have a look at those next.

Jackpot slots

The main difference between regular online slots and jackpot slots is that the former have a lower maximum payout. With jackpot slots, however, there are larger top prizes, sometimes offering up to a seven-digit win on just a single spin.

While 'jackpot' can refer to a fixed huge cash prize awarded during jackpot games, the term is also used to describe progressive slot games. For fixed jackpot slots the size of the jackpot is, well, a fixed amount. With a progressive slot, the size of the jackpot increases each time a player places a bet on the game. Progressive jackpot slots are a great way to add to your online gambling experience. These games can offer some of the most exciting experiences of all casino games, as they provide you with the chance to win the biggest payouts you'll find online.

Online roulette

Online roulette games consist of a wheel with spaces that are either red or black and are numbered from 1-36. This popular game is easy to learn and even easier to play. All you need to do is predict where the ball will land and place your bet. The roulette wheel then spins, and if it lands on where you placed your bet, you win.

You may think that only one variant of roulette exists in online casinos, as this is typically the case at real-world casinos. However, at William Hill Canada, you’ll find multiple variants available, including a European version with one zero, and an American version with two. You’ll also find a French version that offers slightly improved odds if you bet on an even-money proposition.

Online blackjack

To win at online blackjack, you need a higher number than the dealer without exceeding 21. You are dealt two cards and can ask for another card as many times as you want before you reach 21.

One of the great things about playing online blackjack is the number of variants available. At a real-world casino, you’re restricted to just one or two games, but you'll find more here at William Hill Canada, including Blackjack Scratch, Royale Blackjack, and Blackjack Super 21.

Live casino games online

This is where online casino technology really comes into its own. Some players enjoy the thrills provided by a real-life casino but also enjoy the convenience of playing online. Live casino offers the ultimate experience to these players. The only difference between playing live casino at home and playing at a land-based casino is that with the former, the action is live-streamed to your device.

You’ll be playing at real tables, with real cards, and with real croupiers dealing your cards or spinning the wheel. Depending on the game, you'll also be playing with other players from all over the globe. With the ability to enjoy live chat with both players and the dealer, live casino offers a fantastic opportunity to enjoy an immersive experience while playing your favourite casino games online.

Enjoy free online casino games with casino bonuses

An online casino bonus is a great way to boost your balance with extra funds and make playing your favourite online slots even more fun. Casino bonuses come in a number of different forms and are applicable to a variety of online casino games.

Almost all casinos bonuses are subject to their own terms and conditions, but what you get back is certainly worth it. If you look at our current bonuses, you’ll see our welcome offer, along with any other offers we may have available. There isn’t a one-size-fits-all bonus, so just make sure to keep your eye on our bonus page in order to enjoy our selection of games the fullest.
