House of Doom Pokie
House of Doom Pokie BackgroundHouse of Doom is an unlikely collaboration between software developer Play’n Go, and legendary Swedish heavy metal band, Candlemass. The band, founded in 1984, are one of the originators of the “Doom Metal” sub-genre, which was particularly influenced by the music of Ozzy Osbourne’s Black Sabbath. In just the past few years, Candlemass were voted the greatest Swedish hard rock band of all time. To have such quality in charge of the pokie’s musical arrangement elevates House of Doom above the average new pokie release. The thumping beats and wailing electric guitars give the pokie an energy and an artistic cohesiveness that is completed by the thrilling graphic design. If there was one word to describe the game, it would be “pulsating.” One could see House of Doom as merely an imitative response to NetEnt’s series of rocking pokies; Guns ‘n’ Roses, Motorhead, and Jimi Hendrix. That may have been the original idea. However, Play’n Go have arguably produced something even more original, as the sound and visuals come together to create something entirely unique.
Pokie FeaturesHouse of Doom is a 5-reel video pokie that has 10 pay lines. The minimum bet is $0.10 and the maximum bet is $100 a spin. Apart from the audio-visual treat that players receive playing this pokie, they will be equally bowled over by the slew of features, free spins, and bonus games that are integral to the pokie’s universe. The first such feature in the base game is Hellgate. Any one of the five reels will highlight on a spin. If a wild symbol happens to land on that reel, then it will expand to cover all 3 symbols. The wild symbols in the base game is the Seer, a blue, witch-like figure. In the free spins game, 2-5 reels become highlighted by the Hellgate. Both the Seer and the HoD symbol expand in the Doom Spins game. Doom Spins & the Wild House of Doom: If on the base game, you get 3 House of Doom symbols, then you will immediately activate the free spins feature, Doom Spins. Players receive 10 free spins. However, when the House of Doom symbol appears in the free spins game, they become wild and substitute for any other symbol. What’s more, if you get three or more during one free spin, then you’ll receive even more free spins at one per symbol. The free spins round is accompanied by vocals from Candlemass, who sing the lyrics “House of Doom” over and over again until you are suitably terrified and exhilarated. Skulls of Abyss: When a player receives 3 skull scatter symbols in the base game, the Skulls of Abyss bonus game is unleashed. Read more in the Bonus Rounds section.

Special Bonus Features
The House of Doom pokie bonus round is known as Skulls of Abyss. As we have mentioned, you activate this game by getting three skull scatter symbols in the base game. Once you get there, you’ll see 15 skulls hovering in a hellish nether-zone. All you have to do is select skulls. Behind the skulls are either cash prizes or a chance to play the Doom Spins free spins feature. There are six different possibilities behind the skulls which are split up into End Symbols, which close the bonus game, or Pick Again symbols. These are as follows:
End Symbols: House of Doom (Opens Doom Spins feature), 20x (bet), 5x (bet).
Pick Again Symbols: 3x (bet), 2x (bet), 1x (bet).
The cash prizes are added together at the end of the bonus round.
