The annual monster hunt turned out to be a mixed bag for participants this year. Kevin Dale, a contributor on Egamingmonitor, took a close look at the casino charts to determine the top Halloween titles of the year. The top title for October was Play’n Go’s Book Of Dead, which, while not classified as a Halloween title, still managed to take the top spot on the main casino charts. Reactoonz, a sister product featuring little aliens, also saw a boost in popularity with the pre-marketing spin for its spin-off, Gargantoonz.
The top 20 games by distribution included a newcomer, Pragmatic Play’s Big Bass Halloween. Despite its late launch, it managed to take first place, beating out old favorites like NetEnt’s Blood Suckers, Microgaming’s Immortal Romance, and Play’n GO’s Count Jokula. The list was rounded out by titles that featured Day of the Dead festival themes, as well as Voodoo Magic.
In addition to the top 20 list, Egamingmonitor shared the best new Halloween games of the year. Among the new titles released in 2023, Spinomenal once again stood out as a top horror game developer. Nolimit City also had a strong showing with several dark-themed game releases.
Looking ahead, the article hinted at the upcoming Christmas charts and a Q3 review packed with data on studio and game performances, games per studio and per operator, and more. The interactive games chart provided by Egamingmonitor updates monthly and includes rankings determined by the number of game appearances on the casino homepages of over 2,500 sites.
Overall, the article highlighted the growing variety of Halloween-themed games and the continued success of the top game developers and studios in delivering unique and engaging gaming experiences.
