Ghostbusters Slots Retiring

It’s slime time! Ghostbuster Slots is headed off into the sunset, but not before we throw a retirement party!

Call on the Ghostbusters until August 31, or try some other fan favorites like Wheel of Fortune Slots and Jackpot Boogie Slots.

Update: I know a few people asked why, so I’ll reply here rather than to each post. I’m sad the game is leaving GSN too. Unfortunately there isn’t much we can do, as our partnership with the Ghostbusters team is concluding. – GSN Angel

  1. NOOOO!!!! I love this game!! You guys always get rid of the good games. Instead, why don’t you all get rid of all of those crappy games like Gypsy whatever, Puppy Love, Mad Scientist, etc that don’t work most the time & hardly ever pay out anything.

  2. NOOOO!!! that game is FUN . I LOVE the ghost bonus and being slimmed . Slimmer is fun to watch . I wish you would return this game with the new cast and story . Please get rid of other stupid games no one plays and give us some new ones . Thanks

  3. Oh gee, It’s a beautiful game and such fun to play. i agree with Leanne. why not get rid of some of those other games she mentioned. i have some guesses as to why, but what’s the point. Ghostbusters will be missed. Will it still be available at GSN mobile casino?

  4. DEAR ANGEL,
    PLEASE EXPLAIN THE REASON FOR THIS RETIREMENT? ARE THERE NOT ENOUGH PEOPLE PLAYING THE GAME? I PLAY DAILY; ACTUALLY SEVERAL TIMES DAILY AS A RULE, AND HAVE ONLY EXPERIENCED A GLITCH HERE AND THERE THAT DON’T COMPARE WITH THE KIND OF PROBLEMS WITH OTHER GAMES. THEY MADE THIS POPULAR WHEN THEY RESPONDED TO THE PLEA’S FOR REDUCING THE LOWEST BID TO 150 TOKENS, BUT NOW I WOULD EVEN DISPENSE WITH THAT IN ORDER TO KEEP THE GAME RUNNING AS IT’S PROVEN ITSELF TO BE A TRULY WORTHWHILE GAME IN ALL RESPECTS!! SO, GOODNESS, OF ALL THE GAMES TO CHOOSE FROM TO GET RID OF, WHY ON EARTH GHOSTBUSTERS??? THERE IS OBVIOUSLY A REASON AND I BELIEVE WE WHO LOVE THIS GAME DESERVE AN EXPLANATION AT THE VERY LEAST. AND FOR HEAVEN’S SAKE BE HONEST ABOUT IT. WE ALL KNOW THIS IS A BUSINESS AND IF THIS HAS CEASED BEING GOOD FOR BUSINESS BECAUSE IT DOESN’T BRING IN ENOUGH PLAYERS, SAY SO. PEOPLE CAN UNDERSTAND AND RESPECT HONEST REASONS MORE THAN THEY CAN MADE UP GOBBLEDIGOOP. SO HOW ABOUT IT ANGEL, CAN YOU FIND OUT WHAT’S GOING ON AND WHY? WILL BE ANXIOUSLY AWAITING YOUR REPLY. MANY THANKS,
    PAM AND MANY OTHERS! (not all listed here)

  5. We got slimed! I liked it too, even just to hear the theme song once in awhile. But I think the team will come out with some new games soon, Looking forward to seeing what they will be!

  6. My favorite game too! What are they thinking??? The new Ghostbuster’s movie is due out soon. I would think that would make this slots game even more popular. Wondering if they will revamp it and bring it back when the movie comes out. I certainly hope so.

    • That is probably why the partnership ended. Just like the Deal or No Deal game that was on here. Least we still have somewhat of a game with the slots if your lucky to get the suitcases for the bonus game.

  7. i will miss this game so much! it was my go to game whenever it said play a casino game of your choice. will miss trying to guess where the ghost is was never good at it but really had fun thanks for having it as long as you did!

  8. Is there any chance we will see Willy Wonka slots in the near future? I loved them when I went to Laughlin NV a few months ago. Thanks !!

  9. Please don’t remove Ghostbusters!! It’s one of the better ones!! You’ve added so many junky ones of late that it’s good games like this that make it worth while to play here. Please reconsider!!!?

  10. Agree with every one about Ghost buster get rid of puppy love gypsy and all those other dumb slots that nobody plays please keep the good games who ever is in charge of this what are they thinking

  11. My first comment here…GHOSTBUSTERS Slots is one of the BEST games at GSN. Why would you want to get rid of it? If you must lose a game, get rid of one of the Bingo games, they take much too long to play and rarely pay out much. Better yet, don’t get rid of anything and just add some more games.

  12. Why take off one of the more fun games on the site? I would rather they retire Tiki Island Slots and Pirate’s Fortune Slots; they are so boring. Only played those a few times since becoming a player over 2 years ago. I hope they reconsider this decision.
    Not Happy!

    • I like those two games! I can play those. Most of the new games are worthless if you can’t play them. Don’t know if it is because I use AOL.

      • I’m going to guess AOL is the problem if that’s how you’re getting to GSN. Perhaps try a separate browser like IE or Chrome not attached to AOL?

  13. I agree with everyone DON T TAKE GHOSTBUSTERS
    IT S THE BEST get rid of puppy love or the pirate slot game that game you never win anything and it dumb I can t stand the parrot
    GHOSTBUSTERS is THE BEST ! ! !

    • He/she can get annoying but at first it is kinda cute and funny. I like that game but not a lot of the newer games because I can’t play them.

  14. My husband and I both love this game. Great audio and visuals. So much better than all the rest. Halloween won’t be the same for me this year, even though I play it all year long. Reconsider GSN.

  15. Sounds like a petition going on to keep the Ghosts!. Who we gonna call now? Not ghostbusters.
    If they have to go then let the retirement party include a big ole promotion to see them off in style. Including a collectable to remember them by. Sad day to learn they are leaving.

  16. You’re going to have alot of unhappy customers if you take Ghostbusters away. Why does it have to retire? Do you have a good reason that might make us reconsider our rants? No need to retire old games to add new ones, is there? But if you must, definitely take Puppy Love, Mad Scientist, and even Bingo Bash, the most complicated game I have ever seen.

  17. Ghostbusters is the slots version played most often, has the best graphics, and most fun factor. Why kill it? Why doesn’t GSN simply run a favorites survey of its members and eliminate the games rarely played and least liked that clutter up the menu?

  18. IF THIS IS A “FAN FAVORITE”…..WHY IS GSN GETTING RID OF IT???? IS GSN GETTING RID OF ALL THE “FAN FAVORITES”?? JUST LIKE WORLDWINNER.COM…..WHO GOT RID OF OVER HALF ITS GAMES “TO MAKE ROOM FOR NEW GAMES”…..HOW MANY MONTH AGO WAS THAT??? THE NEW SLOTS GSN ADDED (PUPPY LOVE, ETC.) HAVE WAY TOO MANY PROBLEMS AND NO AUTOPLAY!!!! GHOSTBUSTERS WORKED AND WAS FAST ENOUGH SO YOU DIDN’T FALL ASLEEP WAITING TO SPIN!!!

    • I agree with your comments. I found some of the World Winner games on MSN games and realized that GSN and World Winner probably had contractural agreements with other sites and found that when the contract expired that either the price got jacked up too high or that the other party to the contract refused to renew. In the case of Ghostbusters the fact that a new movie is coming out could be the whole reason for it’s demise. Its still sad to see good games go.

  19. Its probably quite simple! I maybe wrong but the games like puppy love and all the related games are not gsn but give gsn loads of money! Its never about us customers nowadays on GSN, is it?

      • Perfectly said!! Since I didn’t get a response to what I wrote directly above you…..guess the “FAN FAVORITES” they are retiring are not making enough money for GSN!! (That’s because you actually win tokens on them, not like the ones they added that don’t even work half the time!!)

      • half the time nowadays I cant even load bingo or jackpot boogie. FUNNY it says check your internet connection YET all the ads videos are up and running full speed. No more to say is there?

  20. I agree with everyone else here. Why get rid of another popular game? You changed my favorite game Diamond Royal and made it a high roller game only, ensuring the rest of us will never be able to play it again. So sad! Now they want to get rid of another good game, probably to add another one of those awful games like Puppy Love that I never play. There are so many other games here that no one likes that could be replaced. Why not give us all a vote on which ones should go? Just a thought.

  21. Just tried to play GHOSTBUSTERS for the first time, before it is retired and it would not bring up a video to watch like the other casino games. Why is this?

    • I’m sorry you’re having difficulties. If you have not already, please contact Player Services for assistance so they can investigate. To contact them click on GSN Help at the top of the main http://www.gsn.com page, then look for the green “contact support” button at the top of the help page. I’d recommend logging into your player name before contacting them so there is a record from your account you can access later if need be.

  22. Well I guess I will rant with the rest of you and ask that GSN get rid of “stupid” games like Wheel of Fortune in all versions of the game,I don’t like so that must mean no one else does ,I don’t play Ghostbusters, so I guess that one will end up being sved like all those WOF games..Alas

    • Just because you don’t like any of the Wheel of Fortune games doesn’t mean the rest of us don’t! I personally like the original WOF game that has the autospins on it. You don’t like Ghostbusters…ok. so why are you even commenting, or as you call it “rant”ing?!? IF you read GSN’s post above, you would know they are getting rid of Ghostbusters….not saving it!!

      • If you can understand sarcasm. .every one else’s comments on the retirement of Ghostbusters wants GSN to get rid of games they find “stupid ” or “silly” others do still play those games. Every one likes different things

      • Way too often..so many other games to play..like all those mentioned above that people dislike ..that have auto spin

  23. Ladyo222 and I totally have something in common. Not only is Ghostbusters one of my favorite games, but so is Diamond Royal, which is impossible to play now. These and Deal of Fortune are my ONLY GSN games. I am so sick of playing Wheel of Fortune!

  24. We are not real happy about loosing the Ghosts “And the people have spoken”
    It might make the blow a little easier to take if we just knew why. Why retire Ghostbusters? If you need to make room for a new game take one of those like Puppy love or Mongo Bingo or even Bingo Bash which isnt even supported by GSN.
    .

  25. NO! NO! Don’t take away the Ghostbusters! I understand there is another Ghostbusters movie in the works…… There are other games that deserve the boot!!! Did you take a players vote on their 5 LEAST favorite games? How about you temporarily retire it and bring it back bigger & better!!!!!!!!!

  26. I agree that Ghostbusters should be left on. There are so many others that should go but NOT GHOSTBUSTERS!!!! PLEASE, PLEASE RECONSIDER………..

  27. I was hoping to see an announcement this morning to celebrate the retirement, but no such luck. We get a bingo promo instead .Bring on the party!!! Or I am calling Ghostbusters on you.

  28. Okay Angel, here goes…Who makes the decisions on what games are going to be retired? Why doesn’t GSN take a player survey before making these decisions? Lastly, you can see so many of us are not happy about Ghostbusters being retired, so are you passing our comments on to the person(s) who made this decision? As i said before, there are some boring games on here that could go and i think it’s a dumb move getting rid of a fun game; they could possibly lose players because of that.

    • Hi 2jellybeans, the decisions are made on a corporate level, and often involve the legal team. Many times with these decisions it’s not a matter of surveying people to see what games can stay – there are legalities involved which our games team cannot control. We like the game too and are sad to see it go. And yes, all comments are passed on as always! 🙂

  29. I took the partnership with the Ghostbusters team hint to mean some contractual things are ending. That is not surprising in themed games where GSN does not have copyrights. We just have to enjoy them while they’re here, and it has been here for a good while.

    Remember we come here for both fun AND prizes. Sometimes partnerships will end so newer games and more & better prizes can come. GB had awesome animations which I will miss more than the actual theme itself because I was never really all that sentimental for the movie or song. There are so many other themes in today’s real-life casinos GSN could be considering that I’m more curious than disappointed! 🙂

    • bunbun71, You are the only one that has offered a reasonable explanation. If I didn’t know better I would think you might be a part of the legal team. Regardless, I appreciate your input.

    • HELLO BUNBUN71,
      AFTER VOICING MY DISAPPOINTMENT (TO THE HILT!) AND ASKING (AND WAITING) FOR AN EXPLANATION, WHICH ANGEL FINALLY NOTED AT THE TOP OF THE PAGE, I WAS FINALLY PLACATED. HOWEVER, I WOULD HAVE BEEN MORE SO HAD THE EXPLANATION BEEN AS SUCCINCT AND AS CALMING AS THE THOUGHTS YOU JUST SHARED WITH US! IT WAS REALLY UNNECESSARY FOR THIS TO HAVE GOTTEN INTO “PETITION” MODE WITH ALL OF US CRYING TO BRING GHOSTBUSTERS BACK WHEN THE INFORMATION FOR ITS INEVITABLE DEMISE WAS AVAILABLE FROM THE ONSET!
      YOUR INSIGHT, UNDERSTANDING, THOUGHTS AND CLARITY OF THE SITUATION WAS BOTH ENLIGHTENING AND VERY MUCH APPRECIATED!! I REALLY WISH YOU WOULD POST IT ON THE FACE BOOK PAGE FOR THE OTHER PLAYERS TO READ AND PONDER! I HAVE NO DOUBT THAT THEY WOULD ALL APPRECIATE IT AS MUCH AS I DO! THANK YOU AGAIN MY GSN FRIEND!
      WARMEST WISHES AND THE BEST OF LUCK! 🙂

  30. There is problems with boogie nights does not want to give any winners and grinds when it tries to start again,I don’t knowifbthis is the right place but I have lost a lot of tokens on this game.Linda Collins.

  31. I wondered if it didn’t have something to do with it being a TM game. Perhaps a contract was up and a cost had to be re-negotiated?

  32. Where is the retirement party?!?! I figured there would have been a big promo this weekend. Was disappointed to see another bingo rally instead.

  33. What exactly is the retirement party for ghostbusters slots? Don’t retirement parties normally have gifts? I am really sorry that the powers to be have decided to end their contract. I will miss this game – mostly because I love to watch slimer push that button. It really does amuse me – I always have to smile – however down I feel. I really hope they can renegotiate and bring it back.

  34. I just played bingo bash and completed the 50/50 and did not receive my 1000
    balls or my tear offs? can you tell me why ?

  35. Did I miss the party? I waited all week for the retirement party to start and now the Ghosts are gone. What happened to the party we were suppose to have?

      • I dont know about that Angel. Seems like there was mention of a party. The announcement reads: “t’s slime time! Ghostbuster Slots is headed off into the sunset, but not before we throw a retirement party!” So I guess GSN forgot to throw the retirement party?

  36. Would have been nice if you had said “through Aug. 30”. I came back to play again today and realized the wording is until Aug. 31. Seems more appropriate to run it through the end of the month. What a disappointment to not have that last day.
