For your trusty slots reviewer, vampire-themed slots are like buses: you wait ages for one, then two come along to review at the same time. And while Aristocrat’s Lucky Count saw a popular land-based slot transported to a new online home, keeping its bricks ‘n’ mortar charms, innovative slot developer NetEnt’s Transylvanian take, Blood Suckers, is purely for the online junkies.
On the Reels…
A 5-reel, 25-payline online slot from the kings of slick slots, Net Ent’s game has all the customary accoutrements of a well-regarded game, including a bonus game to sink your teeth into.
(Super)naturally, the symbols all relate to our blood-sucking friends, with the reels full of stakes, vampires, glasses overflowing with the red stuff, garlic and holy water to ward off the menaces, a trusty Bible, and, of course, the damsel in distress.
This is a NetEnt production, so expect plenty of blood-curdling animation and noises whenever a winning combo comes off.
Meanwhile, friendly betting kicks off at just $0.01, and there is a bloody tasty jackpot of $15,000.
Dracula’s Gone Wild!
The Dracula symbol acts as the Wild and substitutes for all symbols other than the Scatter. Three or more Scattered vampire icons, meanwhile, awards you 10 free spins. Wins coming from the freebies will be tripled.
Slay Vampires to Win Prizes
So far, so Hammer Horror B-flick – but what else is on offer other than a damsel in distress’s neck to dive into?
Well, look out for the coffin and hammer symbol, as it triggers the game’s main bonus feature. Simply get three or more bonus icons on the reels and you’ll be off to play a familiar ‘Pick the Box’ style game, where you have to choose from 12 unopened caskets.
If a vampire appears you can drive a stake into its heart and win a prize. Some contain bats, however, meaning that the evil bloodsucker gets away and your go ends.
If this is your kind of thing, even months away from Halloween, you’ll probably get a kick out of it.
And if it’s put you in the mood for more horror action, make sure you check out Microgaming’s grim and undead-themed slot, Alaxe in Zombieland, or the Twilight-inspired Immortal Romance from the same developer.
