You may shortly be planning a visit to Las Vegas, Atlantic City or some other gambling holiday destination, or simply planning on giving a slot machine or pokie game a try online or on your mobile phone.
If you are however into horror films, there are now quite a number of gaming machines which have such themes available these days.
With that in mind I have taken a look at just which slot machines are the most popular ones with players that have such a theme, many of which you can play in both land based venues and online or on any type of mobile device too.
Keep in mind though when playing any type of gambling game, there is of course always an element of risk attached to them, and the ones that are going to be offering you the best chances of winning, or at least getting plenty of play time for your money, are those that have payout percentages higher than 96%!
The Walking Dead is of course one of the most watched TV shows of all time, and that has led to many slot machine designers launching a range of slots that have some sort of Zombie theme attached to them.
In fact, Aristocrat who are a slot game developer based in Australia, but who also have offices across the globe managed to acquire the rights and licenses to launch two fully themed slot machines that are themed completely around that TV show, those being their Walking Dead and Walking Dead II slots.
Those two pokies have become firm favourites with slot players across the globe, and there is always a very good chance you will find them available to you when you wander into most land based casino venues in the USA.
Microgaming, who specialize in the design and supply of online and mobile slot games are another slot game developer that has chosen to launch plenty of horror themed slots over the years, in fact their Lost Vegas slot is one many players do enjoy playing, thanks mostly to its zombie related theme.
In fact Net Entertainment who are best famed for their instant play, no download pokies and slots have also launched an “in your face” zombie themed slot that will certainly appeal to fans of the un-dead, that being their aptly named Zombies slot.
However, you will find all manner of other horror related slots, including but not limited to the Times of Darkness series of slots, the Immortal Romance slot and also both the Full Moon Fortunes and Hand of the Devil slot, most of which by the way boast a Vampire related theme.
Some Horror Themed Slots May Get Banned
One aspect of the design of slot machines that are available to UK players that is going to have to be taken into account moving forward is that both the UK Gambling Commission and the Advertising Standards Authority in the UK are worried that some slot and pokie machines are way too appealing to children.
They have decided that slot games that do boast a cartoon or childlike theme must no longer be on offer or advertised at online and mobile casino sites as they could be too appealing to children who may be enticed into playing them online or on their mobile devices.
That does of course mean that some slots that are currently available which do come with a horror related theme that children could find attractive such as the Boogie Monsters slot or the So Many Monster slot games could get banned in the very near future.
