Overview

Have you ever listed to The Crypt? Sequels aren’t very common in music. Metallica managed it with Unforgiven and Unforgiven 2 and even completed the trilogy when Death Magnetic came around. But that’s the exception.

So, what happens when you create an epic slot based on a song that doesn’t have a sequel? The answer is that you make it about another band! Such is the case with House of Doom 2, a sequel to the originally Candlemass-inspired Play’n Go slot machine that focuses on The Crypt.

House of Doom 2: The Crypt Features

House of Doom 2: The Crypt uses a similar gothic aesthetic as the original title and also has a metal soundtrack, but this time it’s The Crypt that takes center stage. You’ll hear tracks like Mistress of Fire, Into the Crypt, Metal Priestess, and I Love the Darkness as the reels spin, and these songs are punctuated by ambient slot sound effects.

There are 20 paylines on this slot (twice as many as the original) and it also has 4 Wild symbols. As you might expect, these symbols form a significant part of the overall gameplay, and it all begins with the Spirit Gate.

The Spirit Gate is an outline that appears at random on one of the game reels. If one of the Wild symbols lands in this outline, it will trigger a respin with a modifier. Each Wild has its own unique modifier, so look out for the following symbols:

Fire Mistress:

Awards a multiplier of 2x, 3x, 5x, or 10x. This multiplier is added to the stake to provide a payout.

Metal Priestess:

The game’s high-paying symbols are converted into the Skull symbol, which rewards the biggest payouts of all.

Queen of the Damned:

A Spirit Gate is added to all of the reels, increasing the chances of additional modifiers and payouts.

There is also a Spirit of Unity Wild, and it’s the biggest of all as it combines all of the features above. However, it is only available during the Crypt Spins feature, the game’s standout bonus.

To unlock Crypt Spins, you must reveal three Upgraded Scatter symbols. These only appear when a standard Scatter lands in the Spirit Gate. During Crypt Spins, one or more Spirit Gates will appear on the reels and a new one will be added to the game when the feature ends.

A standard Free Spins feature is available if those three Scatters are not upgraded. This also activates at least 1 Spirit Gate and can also lead to the Crypt Spins.

Verdict: For the fan of all-things-dark

If you have yet to be introduced to The Crypt, this slot is the perfect chance to get acquainted with the band’s music. It’s heavy, it’s dark, and it serves as a fantastic soundtrack to this beautifully-designed slot machine. The band is nowhere near as well known as Candlemass, but it has plenty of time to make its mark and this slot gives it a huge head start.

The standard symbols have all been given satanic designs worthy of the pounding doom metal soundtrack, and the addition of the modifiers in the guise of Wild symbols adds an extra dimension. Keep your eyes peeled for those Crypt Spins and the corresponding Spirit of Unity Wild, as this combination can lead you toward the slot’s biggest payout of 6,000x.
