Dracula Slot Overview
When it comes to mythical, creepy monsters, vampires have been a long popular choice. One of the few folklores of Eastern Europe that have become prevalent in western societies, the idea of the dead rising in the night, feasting on the blood on the living, and generally being difficult to murder without the aid of special methods, have certainly kept up the creepiness factor throughout the years. After all, a hard to kill machine of death and destruction coming at you without a need to sleep, with only the light of day keeping it at bay? It’d make anyone dread nightfall. Dracula slot machine powered by NetEnt comes with a 5×4 playing field and 40 pay lines for gamblers to try their luck on. After feeding our bloodthirsty vampire, you may eventually be permitted to join him for a free spins special feature, as well as indulging in Stacked Wilds and a random Bat feature.
New Age, New Dracula
When it comes to an infamous vampire whose brutality made him internationally famous, you’re never sure what you can expect. But finding Dracula himself laid back in a chair with very much so modern clothing was not something we envisioned the first time we booted up the Dracula slot. That said, from the general design of everything, it looks like the Count has moved into the Industrial era of Britain, and has developed a taste for older, fat women, drunks and beggars who litter the street. But his heart is set for a lovely Lady, and it’s up to you to help them get together.
On the gameplay front, this NetEnt release is certainly favoured towards the high variance and the chase of special features. Getting to the free spins takes a long time, but there’s always a lucrative prize waiting at the end of them, especially if you get lucky with how the stacked Wilds turn out. There’s little in terms of base gameplay mechanic that can really change things up. The Bat bonus is also decent, but is not a guaranteed win, as, in a bout of bad luck, we’ve ended up triggering it and not getting a win out of it.
May We Have This Dance?
To trigger the free spins bonus, you have to get an expanded Dracula Wild on the second reel at the same time as an expanded Lady Wild is present on the fourth. This is a lot more difficult than you might expect. You receive 10 free spins for your troubles, but you can get more by getting another expanded Wild on the third reel, this one portraying Dracula and the Lady dancing.
On top of this, there is a Bat bonus. In it, Dracula, who sits on the left side of the reels, will disappear and transform into a swarm of bats, which will pre-set some icons on the reels. This isn’t a guaranteed win, but it can be good in a pinch.
Our overall verdict for the Dracula slot is a positive one. You should keep in mind it is a high variance title, so you need to plan accordingly and bring enough cash. That said, the bonuses are more than worth the wait, and with everything from the graphics to the prizes being amazing, you owe it to yourself to try this NetEnt slot game.
