Ghost Slider evaluation

Theme and plot of the story

Ghost Slider is a slot that is a little out of the ordinary. It is a horror themed slot machine, which is not all that uncommon, but it is based around haunted paintings. This does seem to stick out a little. Haunted paintings aren’t a very well-known horror cliche, although they are becoming more popular. Neither are the old-fashioned ghosts that appear in this spot very terrifying.

Everything else about the slot, on the other hand, seems to be begging to be taken seriously. The display of tombstones at the top of the screen, the dark gothic backdrop, and the symbols on the reels all add to the atmosphere.

The spirits then materialize, and the scenario becomes almost comedic in its absurdity. Thus, the theme ends up being a bit of a dud. We are undoubtedly drawn to it since it is unusual enough to warrant our attention.

Graphics, sounds, and animations are all included.

The visuals fall into that fairly unsightly category of attempting to be realistic but not having nearly enough competence in the pool of artists to carry it off well.

This is made all the more bizarre when you consider that the animations are, at times, rather sophisticated and diverse in nature. Despite the fact that they are not much better than the plain artwork with which they are paired.

The music seems strangely out of sync with the rest of the slot’s overall mood and feel. When you win with what are supposed to be spooky ghost symbols, upbeat techno music plays in the background.


Ghost Slider is a five-reel video slot with three rows on each of its reels. There are 10 possible winning combinations for the player to choose from.

There are various possibilities available in the gamble system. Despite the fact that the basic game is a double-or-nothing shot, players have the opportunity to pay out half of their winnings at any time and keep playing.

With the cascade system, winning symbols are removed from the reels and new symbols are dropped in to take their place on the reels. This is tied into the bonus system (details are provided below), which is simple yet effective.

Wilds, bonuses, and free spins are all included in this game.

The Wild symbol may be used in place of any other symbol in the game.

Upon occurrence of the cascade four times in a single spin, the free spin bonus is activated. The greater the number of cascades, the greater the amount of free spins, with a maximum of 50 free spins.

This is a rather straightforward arrangement, but it functions well and should please gamers who aren’t seeking for a slot with a lot of bells and whistles.

Bet sizes, return on investment (RTI), and variance

The return to player for this game is 95.91 percent, which is somewhat below our yardstick of about 96 percent, but not by enough to cause us to dramatically change our opinion of this slot machine.

The range of bets available on the site we tested ranged from a minimum of $/£/€0.20 per spin up to a maximum of $/£/€20.00 per spin, with the lowest being $0.20 and the highest being $20.00.

Our favorite slot machine techniques do not work well with this game because of its high volatility, which is at the upper end of the medium range for volatility. Our slot techniques are designed to provide the greatest amount of volatility feasible.


Ghost Slider is a slot with a unique design that may benefit from some improvement in the aesthetics section.

Internally, it has an average return to player (RTP), somewhat high volatility, and a straightforward double or nothing gamble feature.

That so, it’s an adequate slot that is neither overly outstanding nor particularly horrible.
