The recent release of Microgaming’s online casino games is exactly just in time with upcoming Halloween holiday. The ‘Johnny Specter’ video slot game invokes ghosts to speak. The classic 80’s movie ‘Ghost Busters’ is a well-know hit of past years, and after all sorts of merchandise and media, including a cartoon and television series, ‘Johnny Specter’ will be remembered and bring out some memories of old, great movie like ‘Ghost Busters’. By bringing the features of an expanding wild, free spins and bonus game multipliers it has become a classic American / Australian video slot combined together.

This game also offers a wild, scatter, bonus game and a unique gamble feature of five reels and thirty pay-lines of fast-paced bowling action.
