This Slot’s Specifications
Anyone who has seen the famous 1980s film Ghostbusters will remember some of Betty, Boris, and Boo’s high-variance escapades. I’m not sure where Red Tiger got the ideas for these characters’ names, but the graphics wouldn’t appear out of place in that film. We were all waiting for the green ‘Boris’-like figure to ‘slime’ someone while eating a massive cake of some sort. All of the action takes place in a haunted mansion with an antique vibe to it. It’s not that spooky; it’s more of a poltergeist comedy.
Red Tiger has been cranking out games at a breakneck speed recently, and it’s possible that some quality has been sacrificed in the process — this slot doesn’t really get going until the big event, a free spins round in which each of the three spooks brings its own modifier to the table.
It isn’t very feature-rich, but it is entertaining.
Let’s look at it more.
RTP, Variance, and Top Payout
The variance is ramped up very high for those interested in the mathematical concept, and spins start at 20p each play. That entails a skewed win distribution in the base game — don’t anticipate regular payouts. Instead, it’s all kept for the bonus round, when things really heat up and prizes of up to 5,000x+ are on the table.
You must hit three or more matching symbols on one of the 30 paylines from left to right to win. Meanwhile, the game’s RTP is 95.69 percent, which is little lower than normal.
Paytable and Symbols
The three major characters on the reels are Betty, Boris, and Boo, however they do not operate as conventional symbols. Instead, you must use low-paying card suit icons and any of the four premium symbols to form winning combinations.
The candles, mirrors, books, and skeletons depict these premiums. The latter is the highest-paying premium symbol, paying out 10 times the stake for five of a kind, and the only one that pays out even for two of a kind.
Also look out for The Diamond, which acts as a Wild, substituting for all other icons to generate winning lines, and the Scatter, which triggers Spooky Spins when three or more appear on successive spins.
Features and Gameplay
Betty, Boris, and Boo have four distinct characteristics to be mindful of. The secret to winning large is to acquire combos of the ghost characteristics — they’re fine on their own, but if you can get them to function together, you’ll be well on your way to the top prize.
Free Spins with a Twist
The primary attraction is this. Apart from the 10 free spins, three modifiers are active on the reels throughout this round, presented to you by our three hosts. Each of the three ghosts has a different modification that may be applied to a spin, and every free spin has a different modifier.
Betty’s Sticky Wilds are a set of sticky wilds created by Betty.
Betty’s technique is Sticky Wilds, which change standard symbols into wilds that stay in place for the remainder of the round when she appears.
Expanding Symbols by Boris
Boris, on the other hand, arrived to this haunted house from Russia, judging by his name, albeit he also has a passing similarity to the greedy Ghostbuster spook.
During the free spins, he emerges at random, much like Betty. When this happens and he takes up residence in a symbol, that symbol expands. Boris’ symbols can increase to 2×2, 3×3, or 4×4, increasing your chances of winning. Obviously, the larger the value of the growing symbol, the better the chances of winning.
Multipliers by Boo
Boo, the smallest of the ghosts, is in charge of multipliers. He adds random multipliers of up to 10x once he appears on the reels. Until the feature ends, the multiplier in question stays active. The multiplier rises if Boo appears on the reels again during the feature.
Betty, Boris, and Boo is a decent slot, but it doesn’t really pack a strong enough punch or provide anything unique enough in terms of features to ensure its durability in the contemporary world of slot gaming. To compete at a time when new companies like Relax are releasing innovative games like Multiplier Odyssey, everyone needs to step up their game. And we’re not sure we see enough of it around here.
However, if you can unlock the bonus round, this ghost-themed slot offers some tempting win potential, mostly through the use of sticky wilds and multipliers, or enormous symbols combined with multipliers.
That should be your game plan if you decide to take these guys out for a spin! Best of luck!
