How to Game on Halloween Without Playing Horror Titles

game on halloween

During Halloween, one of the most popular suggestions for having fun is to play horror video games. Based on the iconic sci-fi movie series, there’s Alien: Isolation which puts players, stranded, on a spaceship or terrifying asymmetrical multiplayer game, Friday the 13th: The Game.

But what if you’re one of those people who is easily scared by that sort of thing? You’ve surely heard all of the arguments and that might be why you hate horror media; your friends have told you that what they’re watching isn’t scary at all, or that it’s not gory in the slightest! Even so, you still want to avoid horror. So with that in mind, here’s a better way to game on Halloween without scaring yourself.

Play Something That Suits Your Actual Interests

You don’t want to play a horror game, but what do you actually want to play? Positively, when it comes to casino games (and especially slot games), there’s tons of choice on offer and there’s something to suit everyone’s interests. Are you interested in animals, adventure and exploring the world? Then Mega Moolah’s list of features will appeal to you, with its reels decorated with exotic animals such as lions, giraffes, and elephants. Is it scary? Not unless you’re frightened by the sight of an elephant’s tusks. Will it appeal to your horror-loving friends? Not at all. But if it entertains you and you have fun, then that’s what counts.

Take Advantage of Offers

Over Halloween, your friends will be enjoying half-price horror titles and discounted gory games. But, just because you don’t like gore, guts and gruesome action, that doesn’t mean that you have to miss out on the Halloween gaming deals. Even though your gaming interests aren’t scary, you can still get some strong deals on the games that you do actually want to play. Deals are localized too so there are free spins (no deposit) in Canada as Canadian gamers specifically get to enjoy welcome bonuses just for signing up. There are different free spin and welcome offers available in different regions though, just in case you don’t happen to be based in North America.

It just goes to show that there are more ways to have fun on Halloween than playing horrifying horror games. You don’t need to give yourself a sleepless night just to enjoy the holiday.
