Halloween Fortune II, a sequel to Halloween Fortune, does not share the same basic design as the old. It follows that of Iron Man 2, with enlarged symbols of 2x1 size, and having a locked Wild symbol in the center of reel 3 for the free spins. This concept was popular with the fans for Iron Man 2, but it certainly wasn't for me. In fact, I quite dislike it, preferring that of Iron Man 3 instead. Now, with Halloween Fortune II taking on Iron Man 2's concept, I have lost my enthusiasm for the game. Perhaps others may love it, but I don't think I ever will.
The Pumpkin is the Wild symbol, paying 3000x the line bet for 5 of them, drastically down from the old 10,000x. It substitutes for other symbols except for the Scatter symbol, but doesn't do anything else. This dumb Wild symbol only appears as a locked Wild symbol in the middle of reel 3 during the free spins, that's all. The logo 'Halloween Fortune II' is the Scatter symbol, 5 of which pays 100x the total bet amount, up from the old 50x. 3 or more of them triggers 10 free spins with an Increasing Multiplier after every 2 free spins, up to 6x maximum. More free spins cannot be retriggered. Sadly enough, this doesn't sound so good to me. The symbols in the game pay from 1000x to 30x the line bet for 5 of each kind, but the 3 Witches symbols have gone drastically down in their values, from the old 1000x, 500x, 400x, to the new 200x, 150x and 100x the line bet for 5 of them. This new paytable is a low one. What the argh!
