How to Play Ghostbusters

Ghostbusters is quite simple to understand. Follow these steps to play the game. 

  1. You cannot adjust the coin sizes. The game is fixed to play 50 coins, and all 30 paylines are active. So, you are only betting a fixed number of coins on every spin.
  2. Click on the “Coins” tab at the bottom of the screen to indicate the number of active paylines during the game. During the Free Spins Bonus round, the regular 30 paylines increases to 40 active paylines.
  3. You can adjust the coin size by clicking on the “Coin Value” tab. The denominations of available coins include $1, $2, $3, $5, and $10 coins. The maximum bet is $500 per spin. Make sure to confirm this before starting the game.
  4. Click on the “Spin” button to start the game.
  5. You can check the total bet by clicking on the “Total Bet” tab.
  6. The “Win” tab is displayed boldly at the right of the “Spin” tab, and you can find the total of all your winnings from your last spin.
  7. A “Balance” tab at the lower right of the screen displays the amount of money with which you must wager.
  8. By clicking on the “Autospin” button, you can set the reels to spin automatically. Select your preferred number of spins from 10, 20, 30, 40, or 50 spins. To stop the reels from spinning automatically, click on the “Spin Button” again.

Ghostbusters Visuals and Sounds

Ghostbusters is audibly and visibly brilliant, stating the least. All the widely known characters from the movie; Raymond Stantz, Egon Spengler, Winston Zeddmore, Louis Tully, and Peter Venkman, all appear on the reels when playing the game. The proton stream, Slimer icon, Marshmallow icon, Ghost Trap, Ecto Goggles, and Ecto Trap, which are all present in the original movie, can also be seen in the game.

The backdrop is arranged against an abandoned factory, and the life-like animation of the green ghost is frightening enough to immerse you in the game. Ghostbusters features unique symbols which transform once the free spin is in progress. The soundscape is one of the most notable features of the game. Each time you spin the reels, you can hear the famous phrase “Who you gonna call?” adapted from the original movie. The game also features the voices of Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd Ernie Hudson, and other members of the Ghostbusters team.

Special Features

Ghostbusters offers several bonus features to help players increase their payouts.

Ballroom Busters

This bonus round is activated by one Slimer bonus symbol and 2 Ghostbuster symbols. Here, players are transported from the reels to a ballroom. Ghosts are hiding inside several items throughout the room, and the goal is to eliminate them.

Players are provided with 5 proton beams to fire at highlighted objects such as paintings and chandeliers. You are awarded a prize once you fire at any target hiding a ghost. Some ghosts have multipliers that can increase your winning by 2x or 5x.

Stay Puft Free Spins

The highlight of the “Ghostbuster” movie and probably the most popular feature of the game, the Stay Puft Free Spins feature is activated by two Ghostbuster symbols and one Stay Puft Bonus symbol. This feature transports you to a different screen while playing dramatic music adapted from the movie.

The reels feature the Stay Puft mascot, animations of the members of the Ghostbuster team, and several Ghosttbuster tools immersed in whitish marshmallow fuzz. During this round, you can win up to 8 free spins. Also, the paylines are increased from 30 to 40 active paylines at the same rate.

Once each spin is completed, the marshmallows falling from the sky may either drop into your prize box as a winning or transform into a sealed Wild Symbol. The game returns to the regular reel once you have used up all your free spins.

Paranormal Pick

This bonus round allows players to select from scary green clouds to stand a chance to win a progressive jackpot. You only have to follow Slimer and choose one out of five options. No matter what you choose, you still stand a chance to win otherworldly progressives. Once you place the maximum bet, you can surely expect a reward. Line up three Ghostbuster icons at the center to stand a chance to win a progressive. 


Ghostbusters is an entertaining slot game for players; it doesn’t matter if you are a fan of the movie. Even though the payouts are not exactly huge, winning is quite simple as you stand a chance to enjoy a fun, spooky experience while earning cool prizes at the same time.
