5 Ghosts is an online slot developed by Aspect Gaming. This game has a long-term average RTP of 94.13% and low volatility to provide engaging and rewarding gameplay.


5 Ghosts is a five-reel, four-row slot machine from Aspect Gaming. This online slot game has 50 fixed paylines, which are on during every spin. The top prize on a payline is 500x the line stake, whilst the bonus feature can unlock a suite of free spins.

Symbols include ceremonial vases, shakers, masks, scrolls and teapots. Watch out for the eponymous 5 Ghosts scatter symbol, as this is key to accessing the bonus free spins feature.

As with many online slot games, it is possible to spin the reels for free, thanks to the Aspect Gaming free play slots feature. It is always recommended to have a go at the game for free before staking any real money at the reels, as this gives players the opportunity to sample the gameplay and bonus features before playing for real.

Theme, Graphics & Soundtrack

5 Ghosts is set in a traditional Chinese temple, with symbols used in the game reflecting this. The background is a tranquil environment featuring water cascading down a mountainside.

This tranquil colour scheme of the normal game is in marked contrast to the twilight in the village that is displayed during free spins, where the bright sunshine gives way to a gorgeous dusk. Similarly, the reels move from a white background to a striking black background, which certainly makes the symbols pop out of the screen. It is a shame that this colour scheme is only visible during free spins, as it looks fantastic.

Graphics are unfussy, if a little simplistic, but this helps to make the reels and symbols clear, no matter how the size of the screen used to play 5 Ghosts. Winning symbols animate slightly and have a gold border around them to make it clear what has brought you the win. Likewise, if two or more scatter symbols appear in the first reels, there is a little more monument to the final reels as the anticipation builds towards opening the free spins.

There is no real soundtrack to speak of, with sound effects being the main order of the day here: during spins, there are effects to mimic the sound of actual reels spinning and coming to a stop, with a scale sounding as the reels land. There is a pleasing jingle when a win is achieved, adding to the sense of occasion.

5 Ghosts RTP & Volatility

5 Ghosts has a long-term average RTP of 94.13%, which is slightly low for a game of this style. Conversely, 5 Ghosts has low volatility, which means that low-value wins are fairly commonly achieved, but waiting for higher-value victories will still need patience.

How to Play 5 Ghosts

1. It is always wise with a new online slot game to take a look at the paytable before spinning the reels. This can be accessed by clicking on the cog icon at the left hand side of the reels. Once the menu has been accessed, the paytable is found by clicking the question mark on the bottom menu. The paytable shows firstly, and perhaps most importantly, the value of each symbol when it appears in winning combinations. Also present in this menu are general rules about the game and information about the paylines.

2. The size of bet can be adjusted by clicking the plus or minus buttons to the left and right of the bet per line amount. It is important to recognise that the total stake per spin is the bet per line multiplied by the 50 lines in play.

3. Sound can be toggled on or off within the main menu, which is accessed through the cog on the left hand side of the screen.

4. 5 Ghosts has an autoplay feature which can be accessed by pressing the autoplay button directly below the manual spin button. Autoplay can run for up to 100 spins, with the option to stop after any spin manually or when a certain amount has been won or lost.

5. If you are happy with the size of your bet, it is possible to spin the reels manually by pressing the spin button on the right hand side of the screen.

6. Please play 5 Ghosts responsibly by setting a budget for each play session and sticking to it. When the fun stops, stop playing.

Bet Sizes & Paytable Wins

The minimum line bet in for a spin in 5 Ghosts is 0.01, making the total bet per spin 0.50.

The maximum line bet is 1.20, for a spin bet of 60.00

Matching five of the ghost masks is the object of the game, with these five symbols each bringing home the jackpot of 500x the line bet.

5 Ghosts Bonus Features

The main bonus feature in 5 Ghosts is the free spin bonus, which is triggered by matching three or more of the five Ghosts scatter symbols across the reels. These can appear on any location and do not have to appear on a payline.

This triggers 15 free spins, which can be retriggered by matching three or more scatter symbols during the free spins. During free spins, all wins are doubled.

Overall Review Our Verdict

This is a great game to play, with its low volatility meaning that low-value wins are never too far away.
