Graphics and Sounds:

This classic movie-themed slot is chockablock full of eerie sounds and graphics. As you play, a creepy, suspenseful string music plays. Land a Wild, Scatter or Win and get a flash of lightning and more edgy tunes. At some point, you’ll be surprised by a shadowy figure behind the shower curtain (which acts as the background to the reel grid) as suddenly, with a burst of music, the knife-wielding slasher figure appears. Except for the Ace through 10, all symbols are carefully designed and based on the movie, making gameplay all the more suspenseful.


If you’d like to add a little more edge to your gameplay, the Universal Psycho Slot from NextGen Gaming might just be the slot for you. From the uncanny music to the random flashes of lightning (seriously, we might’ve jumped in our seats a time or two) to the unique Gamble Feature… this game will keep you on your toes and creeping around for more chances to win.
