Do you dare to enter the House of Doom? This 5-reel video slot with 10-fixed paylines from Play’n GO is themed after Doom Metal, a genre of heavy metal music that is considered to be one of its most extreme. The game draws inspiration from the iconic Doom Metal band, Candlemass, who are considered to be the pioneers of the genre.
Founded in 1984, Candlemass is one of Sweden’s most famous bands and is one of the World’s biggest Doom Metal bands. As you spin the reels of the slot, you’ll be treated to a soundtrack of music from their latest album. This will no doubt be a treat for fans of both Candlemass and this heavy metal style that’s renowned for sounds and lyrics designed to evoke a sense of dread, despair and impending doom.
Amazing Candlemass music aside, visually, House of Doom features a dark and eerie blue, purple and black colour scheme. What’s more, the images on the reels perfectly tie into the slot’s overall macabre atmosphere.
For instance, there’s a spooky Seer (the wild symbol); the foreboding House of Doom (the Free spins scatter symbol in the main game); the Wild House of Doom (the free spins scatter symbol during the free spins feature); and the Skull (a bonus scatter symbol).
There are many ways to score winning combinations in this games. For starters, the wild symbol can substitute for any other symbol with the exception of the scatter symbols, boosting the chances of landing a wining combo. Also, a combination of 2 or more adjacent wild symbols can lead to a win when this combination appears along an active line. Moreover, on every spin, one reel is highlighted at random. If the wild should land on this reel, it will expand and replace all other symbols on this reel.
An exceptionally exciting aspect of this slot are its Doom Spins. If you land a minimum of 3 House of Doom symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5, this will award you 10 free spins called Doom Spins. You can re-trigger spins by landing the Wild House of Doom symbols on reel 1, 3 or 5 up to the max win! You’ll be awarded 1 extra free spin per symbol.
Plus, the regular House of Doom symbol will become wild during the free spins round, acting as an additional wild throughout the duration of the feature. Also, just like in the base game, reels are randomly highlighted. Except, this time, between two and five reels are highlighted including at least one of either the 1, 3 or 5 reels. If any of the wild symbols land on the highlighted reels during a spin, they will expand to cover the full reel.
Beyond Doom Spins, there is a Skulls of Abyss Bonus Game. This can be triggered when you land 3 of the Skull symbols, which can only appear on reels 2, 3 and 4. Once activated, the bonus game gives you the chance to pick skulls that appear to reveal the prizes hiding beneath. You could trigger free spins or cash prizes 1x, 2x or 3x your total bet. The game will come to an end if you pick a Skull that is hiding a House of Doom symbol and these symbols can be 5x and 20x your total bet prizes.
