Here’s a game that really has some bite to it. It’s also one in which the stake isn’t just what you’re gambling on each spin of the reels. It’s vampire time and this is a really creepy game that’s you’re really going to love, well unless you’re a vampire who’s getting a stake through his heart that is.
‘Bloodsuckers’ is an excellent game from NetEnt who keep on releasing some great slot machines for us to play. It’s a five-reel game that has three rows of symbols and 25 paylines for you to try and win some cash on. In the background we see a bleak scene that has a bloody handprint on a wall. Obviously this theme isn’t a joyful one!
The minimum stake in this game is just a penny and the maximum £100. That’s a wide range so there shouldn’t be a problem in finding a level that you can gamble at. A game with this theme needs some great symbols and that is the case here. We get garlic, a bible (not the vampire’s favourite bedtime reading), a bow and arrow and a test tube. The wild symbol is a vampire biting a girl’s neck and this can substitute for other symbols to get you some winning combinations. It doesn’t substitute for the scatter symbol in this game which is the scary bride, nor can it replace the bonus symbol of the hammer and stake.
Down in the bottom left hand corner of the screen are some useful control buttons. These include the paytable and rules, always handy to read through and learn as much as you can about the game. Enjoying some free games will also help you prepare for this battle against the vampire. There’s also an autoplay feature allowing you to set between 10 and 1000 automated spins. You can also use the advanced feature to set a more precise number of automated spins. This can include stopping the spins when your balance reaches a certain level (good or bad) and after a big win you want to protect.
If you can get three of the bonus symbols on a winning payline this takes you to a second screen game. It’s a dark and dingy room and there are 12 unopened coffins on the floor. There’s nothing worse than an untidy undertaker isn’t there? Your task is to click on the coffins and reveal their contents. If you’re lucky there’s a vampire inside ready for you to kill with a stake through the heart for a cash bonus. If the coffins opens and some vampire bats fly out then that ends the round.
To get ten free spins you simply need to get three or more of the bride scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. That’s important because it means you don’t have to be activating all the paylines in order to be in with the chance of activating this. During the free spins all wins are tripled and it’s possible to retrigger the free spins via more scatters appearing.
An entertaining game for sure that won’t drive you bats. The theme is a good one and it’s well adhered to both in terms of symbols and the second screen bonus game. Definitely recommended.
