Lucky Haunter

In a Nutshell


Many games from Austrian slots manufacturer Novoline, and their online slots subsidiary Novomatic, such as Book of Ra and Dolphin’s Pearl, have built up something of a cult status amongst players and we think this offering should definitely join that illustrious list, if it hasn’t already!


In fact so much so that we’re going to have a slightly more in depth review of this one than we normally do, just out of homage to the manufacturers and their fans!


A Closer Look


Lucky Haunter is just so plain random in its design that it’s great!


Essentially the Lucky Haunter in question seems to be a character straight out of the novel Catcher in the Rye - part bar fly, part foodie and definitely a bon viveur.


The symbols are made up of lobsters (any slot game with lobsters on the reel is a sure fire winner in our estimation!) another symbol with what appears to be some kind of prawn cocktail (clearly our ‘lucky’ haunter needs some nibbles with his beers!), a selection of alcoholic drinks including a carafe of red wine and a foaming, nut-brown ale and other seemingly wacky motifs.


There are 5 reels and 9 paylines on this game, with between 1 and 225 credits to bet each time, but that’s about as far as the conventional features go!


Even the name isn’t clear – you might see it listed as ‘Lucky Hunter’ but according to the game itself it’s Lucky Haunter …er, naturally…
The Wild is an upside-down horseshoe, symbolizing bad luck but in this case everything is upside down of course, so it will substitute for all symbols except the bottle cap, which is a Scatter.


Get 3 or more of these and, far from having to be recycled, you’ll go to the bonus screen for some more drunken fun!


Through all of this you’ll see our hero, or rather, anti-hero looking wild eyed, bedraggled and, well, haunted, at the bottom of the screen!


Free Spins Features


Sadly our Lucky Haunter is so down on his luck that there are no free spins to be had on this game.


Bonus Game Features


If you unlock the bonus game you’re in for a real treat that even a seasoned drinker wouldn’t turn his or her nose up at.


5 beer bottle tops are laid out and you have to flip them over, each one multiplying you total bet by the amount noted (see, it is worth going for max bet sometimes).


If you get an ‘exit’ you’ll be returned to the main screen with whatever winnings you built up, but if you get through all 5 tops, you’re in for a real treat. You have to find a chicken by choosing between 2 covers, but be careful, if you lift a cover just to reveal an old fishbone, that’s pretty much well what you get to take away.


On the other hand if it’s a chicken that shows up, you’ve claimed the super bonus, which can be as high as the slightly random figure of 16,8750 credits!


Special Features


Lucky Haunter also has the signature ‘gamble or collect’ feature which Novoline/Novomatic put on a lot of their games. This is triggered every time you have a win in regular play, where you get the ‘take or risk’ option, which, if you take it, opens up a video poker type screen, where you can double your winning on the last spin if you beat the dealer’s card from one of the remaining 4.


You can continue to double up each time for as long as you like unless you either lose to the dealer or decide to claim your winnings. You then go back to the main screen.


The main difference with the Lucky Haunter interpretation of this game is that, instead of using playing cards, beer cans with numbers on them pop up instead!


Whether the numbers refer to the alcoholic strength of the drink, well, we’ll leave that up to you to decide!
