Free Spins of the Halloween Slot

The line and bet settings that were active when the round was launched will be used for payouts, with a x2 multiplier.
Jackpot Cards Mystery Bonus
These Jackpots can be won during the randomly triggered Jackpot Cards Mystery Bonus when you are playing for real money. The four levels are Clubs, Diamonds, Hearts and the highest level is Spades. Once triggered you will need to select cards from the 12 that appear face down, to find 3 cards with the same suit and the Jackpot that is associated with that suit will then be paid out.
