Game Review – Michigan Lottery’s Halloween Legends

Quick Review

Summer’s gone, can’t deny it.  Time to get ready for Halloween.

And the Michigan Lottery is on point with the release of its Halloween inspired online instant game Halloween Legends.

The Michigan Lottery’s Halloween Legends Game

Halloween Legends is similar to the long popular Mayan Legends game.  There are multiple ways to win (see below), but the core of the game involves rolling dice to remove masks from the board, over five rolls your goal is to remove enough masks to collect a metered prize.

Halloween Legends sports some nice upgrades over Mayan Legends: new graphics, a bonus game, and an improved payback – Nice!

The White Dice corresponds to the vertical axis, and the Black Dice to the horizontal axis.  The game piece where those two number cross (that grid location) gets collected and removed.

For the roll above (white 5, black 4) the arrows indicate the piece that will be removed.

Player Strategy

As a game of luck, I don’t know of a system to increase your winning percentage.

But you do have control over the ticket price, so you can increase your ticket price to go bigger or decrease your ticket price to slow things down.

Hopefully Halloween Legends brings you more treat than trick this October.

Good Luck!
