Here’s a slot game that really has some bite to it. Dracula is back and it’ll be fangs for the memories after you get some great wins in this entertaining game from NetEnt.
The spooky feel to the game starts right from the introduction. A woman is being chased through a village by a load of bats. The poor girl thinks she’s avoided them but it’s clear there are more horrors awaiting her. A great way to start the game.
When you start playing the actual game there’s a rather moody looking Count Dracula on the left of the reels. He definitely doesn’t have the Christopher Lee look, more the miserable guy in your local pub you steer clear of. Dracula sits in his chair occasionally tapping his fingers but it’s not his fingers I’d be worried about. To the right of the reels is a pretty young girl called Mina who’ll also steer clear of Dracula if she has any sense or luck.
‘Dracula’ is a five-reel game that has four rows of symbols. There are 20 fixed paylines offering you potential wins and you simply have to decide how much to stake on each spin of the reels. The range goes from £0.20 all the way up to £200 so that’s wide enough to allow you to find a level you should be comfortable with and high rollers will be pleased too. When you spin the reels there are a load of bats flying out.
Symbols include Dracula which is a stacked symbol as is Mina. There’s also a plump women dressed in furs, a seaman with a wine bottle and a young boy who is holding some money. When they create winning combinations these symbols they turn a bit demonic and that really upsets Dracula, even more than putting garlic bread on the menu.
The wild in this game is simply a symbol with the letter ‘W’ on it. A little bit disappointing considering the work that has been put into the rest of the game. Other symbols are the Jack to Ace symbols.
If you want some time away from the screen you can set an autoplay. This can be between ten and 1000 or you can set an advanced selection allowing you to stop the spins when a certain balance is reached or a specific win achieved. This isn’t the most complex game out there, but a look through the paytable and some free games will also help you get used to how the game runs.
The Bat Feature is awarded randomly. Dracula transforms into a swarm of bats (nice trick if you can do it) and these then fly over the reels and turn a random number of symbols into matching ones. The reels are then re-evaluated and the wins added to your account balance. When Dracula turns into the bats it really is quite spectacular.
If you want some free spins then you need to get a complete stack of Dracula symbols on reel two and the Lady on the fourth reels. This awards you a total of ten free spins and there’s an additional symbol added to the third reel. This has both Dracula and his potential female victim and if it turns up then you get two more free spins.
This is a great little game from NetEnt. The look to it is really impressive, especially that bat feature. The bonus game can bring you some good wins so this is definitely recommended.
