Doomier, gloomier, and better! House of Doom 2 is a direct sequel and upgrade to Play’n Go’s heavy metal success of the same name. Featuring Expanding Wilds, weighty multipliers, and a maxed-out jackpot of 6,000x the stake, House of Doom 2 is a head-banging treat for moshers everywhere.
Betting Options and Bonus Features
Much like the original slot, House of Doom 2 plays on a 5x3 grid with 20 paylines. The game contains everything doom-metal related. From dingy crypts and spikey skulls to women dressed in dark Gothic outfits, there is no end to the visual pleasure one can experience on this walk through the halls of the dead. Music makes up the rest of the game, with scores of doom metal increasing in intensity with every win, singing the forever symphony of destruction.
House of Doom 2 has an RTP of 96.25% and a volatility rated at a 7/10, so players can expect smaller wins more frequently.
The slot features 4 types of Wilds which appear randomly at various points in the game. They substitute for every symbol except a Scatter while also paying 25x the bet for 5 in a line. The Spirit Gate will drop at random in the game. When the Wilds land on a Spirit Gate, they expand and cover their entire reel and give one respin. Furthermore, Wilds also have a unique interaction with the Spirit Gates:
- Queen of the Damned: Adds Spirit Gates to all reels in the respin.
- Fire Mistress: Awards a random multiplier of 2x, 3x, 5x, or 10x to the respin wins.
- Metal Priestess: All relic symbols upgrade into the highest-paying Skull symbol.
Players gain access to the Crypt Spins Bonus Round when they land three normal Crypt Scatters simultaneously on reels 1, 3, and 5. In the bonus round, it is possible for more than one active Spirit Gate to appear, making it much easier to trigger the features above. Additionally, Crypt Scatters that land in an active Spirit Gate gains an upgrade to the Flaming Crypt Scatter.
By landing 3 Flaming Crypt Scatters during the bonus round, players will receive 8 Free Spins. Players can trigger this event infinitely, leading to possible endless free spins. Spirit of Unity Wild, the ultimate wild symbol exclusive to the bonus round, may appear randomly. Whenever it lands on a spirit gate, the game rewards players with Queen of the Damned, Fire Mistress, and Metal Priestess powers all at once.
There is a lot to say about the House of Doom 2 slot. One thing is for sure, it's an improvement from the first game in every way. Although the first game is a classic, the second one took the cake for me. The game provides plenty of action with Expanding Wilds, juicy multipliers, and that sweet sweet Spirit Gate that can turn the most boring time into one of the most bountiful harvest seasons of your life. As much as I enjoy waiting for the Spirit of Unity to appear, it can be boring waiting for it. But once it does appear, you'd better open up your bags because it will certainly pour. Overall, House of Doom 2 is a game I’d come back to from time to time.
