Ghostbusters Spectral Search

As the nights grow longer and the shadows deepen, there is no better time grab your proton pack and bust some ghosts! Ghostbusters is an iconic comedy series, and Ghostbusters Spectral Search captures all the most memorable aspects in its Ghost Trap.

When you play Ghostbusters Spectral Search you're helping the Ghostbusters team test their new Spectral Processing Optical Operation Kit, by scanning for spooks in some iconic locations from the films. You can search the hotel ballroom that's the site of one of the team's first, destructive public outings, the library where they first encounter a real ghost and even the tower top where Gozer threatened to invade the world at the end of the first film, and many more.

You choose how much your ticket costs at the beginning of the game, and the size of this wager governs how much you stand to win by catching ghosts.

You can win low amounts by capturing small numbers of less threatening ghosts and huge jackpots if you manage to scan and capture four versions of the famous Stay Puft Marshmallow Man.

When you play Ghostbusters Spectral Search online you've got the chance to score an instant win if you can find Slimer, perhaps the most iconic ghost in the whole Ghostbusters franchise. As you work your way through the game you will choose and search two locations. The SPOOK unit will give you an indication of which ghosts proliferate in which location, so if you're trying to track down the last one you need to score a win you'll have the information you need to boost your chances.

Every win, from matching ghosts to finding Slimer, is captured in your ghost trap to be released at the end of the game. You have five chances to match in each location, so you have every chance to fill our ghost trap with winnings!

You can access Ghostbusters Spectral Search online through all your devices so when there's something strange in your neighbourhood, you don't have call the Ghostbusters: you can leap into action yourself, and turn back the ghosts while racking up your jackpot!
