Dare Your Play the Paranormal Activity Pokies?

Halloween is almost upon us and if you are sick of carving pumpkins, we have the perfect scary pokies machine. Paranormal Activity is an iSoftbet creation featuring the name of the 2007 Hollywood movie. The movie is the most profitable in terms of return on investment having returned $193 million from a $15,000 budget.

Paranormal Activity, the film edition, centres on a young couple who are haunted by a demonic presence in their home. It is filmed in a similar style to The Blair Witch Project as it utilises found-footage. While the first Paranormal Activity was scary enough to make your blood run cold, later editions are not so much. Thankfully, iSoftBet has created a horror pokie that is worthy of the Paranormal Activity name.

Paranormal Activity Visuals

Many horror pokies have cartoon-like graphics but Paranormal Activity bucks this trend. The graphics are quite scary and add to the atmosphere like no other pokie we’ve seen.

Traditional J, 10, Q, K, and A are the low paying symbols. There are also high paying symbols including a Ouija board, video camera, ghosts and more. A possessed girl represents the two of the wilds with a skull with glowing eyes being the third. Hit the bloodied hand for the scatter.

The graphics are eerie and you can see plenty of effort has been put into them. This is the perfect horror pokie for Halloween, that is for certain.

How To Hit The Bigger Wins

While the top payout is 750 coins, Paranormal Activity gives you more than enough chances to win. Land 3,4 or 5 scatters anywhere on the reels to win three, 10, or 25 times your stake. Trigger the bonus round by landing the bonus symbols on reels 1, 3, and 5 on the same spin. Opening the bonus round randomly rewards one of three bonus features or gives you an instant cash win.

Paranormal Free Spins continues giving free spins until you’ve enjoyed five wins. Each win comes with an increasing multiplier, meaning this could be a profitable feature.

The second feature is the Possessed Free Spins. You receive 10 free spins in this round with extra stacked wilds added to reels after each free spins.

Feature number three is Demon Free Spins. Here, you bank 15 free spins. The wild Demon sometimes appears on any free spin and transforms other symbols into wilds.

All the biggest wins stem from the Paranormal Event feature. This is rare but fantastic when triggered. Paranormal Events are hit randomly at the beginning of any spins in the base game. Up to five wild symbols are added to the reels, making big wins possible.

None of the Paranormal Activity features is particularly innovative, but each can be great for your bankroll. Our favourite was the standard Paranormal Free Spins because each multiplies your wins. The multiplier is 5x by the time you hit your fifth win, and we were able to lock up sizeable wins.


Paranormal Activity was a decent film in its time and has a cult following. We can see this pokies machine enjoying the same. The visuals are excellent and the sounds quite chilling. This iSoftBet pokies machines won’t win any awards for massive jackpots, but it gives enough back to make it worthy of your time.

Horror pokies become more popular during Halloween so if you enjoy Paranormal Activity give these games a try. Halloween Treasures, Psycho Online, Blood Suckers I, or Dark Hearts. Just make sure you play them with the lights on!
