With Halloween just around the corner, it’s a great time to talk a little more about NetEnt’s upcoming release, which is sure to send a chill down your spine! A Universal Monsters: The Phantom’s Curse casino game is the latest in a series of slots that celebrate the monsters brought to life by movie magic.
What is the Phantom’s Curse?
This is one of those titles that elicit a healthy bit of speculation. A good place to start is by looking at what other titles NetEnt has released within this same series.
Players will remember games by the names of Frankenstein, Dracula, The Invisible Man and Creature from the Black Lagoon. All these slots are based on films and indeed, were created in partnership with Universal Studios.
Horror fans will recognize these titles – they are some of the most beloved names in the horror film cannon – and they continue to appeal to casino players in general too. NetEnt’s high standards for game production means they remain popular slots, years after their release.
So, what can we expect from this new slot? There are plenty of ghosts, ghouls, phantoms and other miscellaneous haunting characters from the movies so it might be difficult to pin this down. It could be about a poltergeist or even a disgruntled spirit from Ancient Egypt.
Could it be Moaning Myrtle from the Harry Potter books? Or maybe even the titular presence from Phantom of the Opera? Casper the friendly ghost? At this point, it could be anyone!
Phantom’s Curse launch date
Universal Monsters: Phantom’s Curse is due to drop on the 24th January 2018. This gives slots fans plenty of time to develop their own theories as to who the ghost may be and why it’s so intent on cursing people!
