Nightmare on Elm Street Slots

Themed on the 2010 remake of the 1984 movie of the same name, Nightmare on Elm Street has become on of 888's flagship products over the last couple of years. Rolled out ahead of the 2012 Halloween, the five reel, thirty payline slot brings horror to your desktop computers, but if you have the stomach for bloody inscriptions and regular appearances of Freddy Krueger, then you can count on some decent payouts as well.

How to play Nightmare on Elm Street

The 2012 release is played at five reels, with game symbols spread across three rows and only paying when found on active paylines. In order to ensure you don't miss out on any payouts, you should activate maximum 30 lines and then you only need to receive two or more matching icons on one of those, starting from reel I to secure an instant credit payout. Freddy Krueger Silhouette is the Wild icon here and its main purpose is to substitute for other game symbols with the exception of Bonus and Scatter. When said icon appear on reel II, it will expand to cover all three positions, with any resulting wins doubled in the process. Never Sleep Again inscription and Freddy's Blades complete the list of feature symbols.

Betting Options and Payout

As we have already mentioned, casino gamers are offered a chance to cover anywhere from 1 to 30 paylines, which translates to wagering between 1 and 30 coins per spin. Meanwhile, they have access to a wide array of coin values, raging from $0.01 to $10. The Number of Autoplay spins can be adjusted using greater then and less then icons or by choosing the x10 and x25 values. Even with so many extra features offered, Nightmare on Elm Street excels when it comes to base line payouts as well. While the Freddy Krueger symbol pays up to 2,500 coins, five Wild icons on any active payline award cool 10,000 credits or up to $100,000, which is definitely not too shabby.

Symbols and Extra Features

The main villain of many horror stories and movies alike appears in various shapes and forms on the reels of the 888 slot game, with Nancy Holbrook, Jesse Braun, Quentin Smith and Kris Fowles characters populating the reels as well. There's no reason to be afraid of Freddy Krueger though seeing that his appearance improves your winning chances. Getting Freddy Krueger Wild symbols anywhere on reels I and V at the same time trigger the Pick Me feature, where you get to reveal one of the icons for an instant cash prize. Three Bonus symbols occurring anywhere unlock the Never Sleep Again bonus. Try not to fall asleep and ensure some excellent payouts. Obtain three, four or five Scatters in any position to get 10, 20 and 30 free spins respectively. The 888 title comes equipped with not one but two progressive jackpots, with Nightmare on Elm Street jackpot and Freddy Krueger jackpot both striking completely at random. There is no special bet value required to trigger the two prizes, but the bigger your bets the higher chances you have of unlocking them. Nightmare on Elm Street is also available on mobile, and chances are you will be impressed by the HTML5 version. While changing the main layout, 888 still managed to squeeze several important icons in the main screen without making it look too crowded, with graphics and sound effects just as impressive as on desktop.

Our Opinion

While the remake of the original movie was far from impressive, 888 has done well to give it a new lease on life with their very good slot game. Nightmare on Elm Street boasts very good visuals and amazing soundtrack that creates a eerie atmosphere on the reels, especially with Freddy Krueger making his appearance on regular basis. Add to that two progressive jackpots and another three bonus features and you will see what the hype is all about.
