October has arrived and as we begin the countdown to Halloween, we have several spooky slot games lined up for you to try this month. The Autumn and winter months are usually the busiest times where online slots sites in the UK are concerned, so we are delighted to showcase to you some excellent online slot games which will be released in October 2022.

A reminder that October 2022 is also Safer Gambling Week. The initiative sees casino operators across the UK promote safer gambling practices. The promotion will run from 17 – 23 October.

October 2022 will see the release of the usual Halloween inspired and themed UK slot games. We will come to these soon enough and also discuss which of them we think is the best Halloween slot. But first, to Play N’ Go as they continue their rock music slots series.

Dio Killing the Dragon is an impressive addition to the Play N’ Go rock slots series. There are lots of premium features in this slot including wild multiplier and numerous free spins levels. Like most rock slots, they usually only appeal to fans of the bands, and this one doesn’t seem like it will be any different. Which is a shame, as its a very well put together online slot.

We are happy to inform you that this month will see the release of another Megaways slot in the form of El Brujo Megaways by MGA Games. This is certainly a game for the adults as this slot stars an adult film star! Whether or not this slot machine makes its way tot he UK market remains to be seen, but it certainly seems like a game which is likely to receive lots of publicity. El Brujo Megaways has a release date of 11 October.

Netent slots games are usually on the money when it comes to player satisfaction, so we are looking forward to their upcoming Super Stars slot which will be released on October 27. It seems that NetEnt have gone for a classic look to this game. Retro slot themes are common as developers look to mix retro graphics with modern features and slot characteristics. It is expected that Super Stars will come with an above average RTP, so fingers crossed for that one and we will let you know further details when we find out some more information from NetEnt.

Of course, October is the perfect month for playing spooky and scary slots due to Halloween. You will be pleased to discover that there will be dozens of newly released Halloween themed slots this month, we have picked out the best ones for you. Undead Fortune from Hacksaw Gaming looks to have been designed around zombies. The graphics on this game are fantastic and very modern and we expect plenty of innovative features.

However, our pick of the Halloween themed slots has to be Count Cashtacular which will be released on Halloween. Vampire themed slots are always fun and Count Cashtacular will come with a maximum potential payout of over 10,000x, making it one of the best Halloween themed payout slots. Developed by RTG, Count Cashtacular should be available at the majority of UKGC licensed online casinos.


Although not a slot game, I’ve always been a fan of both scary things and poker. Zombie Hold’em mixes the two together and I will certainly be trying out this Playtech game once it is released.
