Some myths will stay for ever with us, even in internet slot games. Netent, a renowned developer of casino games and systems for the world wide web, has recently released a new slot game with Count Dracula as its central character. When I first read the news, I admit I felt a little worn out about blood suckers and thought “Oh, another vampire themed slot game…”.
You should know that I am quite a fan of those stories in fiction, but maybe another slot game was too much, having already enjoyed good experiences with “Blood suckers” and “Immortal romance”. However, I put my prejudices aside and gave a try to the newly released Dracula slot game. I was not disappointed. The game offers enough excitement even for the most demanding users. It has 40 fixed bet lines, five reels and four rows. Enough options to enjoy different variations. After all, if it were for avoiding repetition in some themes, other great vampire novels such as Robert Matheson’s “I am legend” or George R Martin’s “Fevre Dream” would have never been written because of Bram Stoker’s ground breaking “Dracula”.
Back to the game description, though. I was more used to open bet lines and not fixed as is the case in Dracula. So every spin of the reels includes always the forty different lines. The variations in the game can be made by changing the coin value and the bet level. Coin value varies from 0.01 to 1.00 with seven different value options in between, including these two ends. On the other hand, there are 10 bet levels. These game choices can be set in the game control panel at the bottom of the reels, the bet level option is to the left of the spin button in the middle of the screen, and the coin level tool is found on its right. Combining these options, you will be able to set the level of your bets according to your convenience, with $0.20 as the lowest possible bet and $200 as the maximum bet.
Game features and special symbols
Dracula slot game has Wild symbols that will add to your chances of winning great prizes. A simple red W is the Wild symbol in this case, which may appear on reels 2, 3 or 4, and can substitute any other symbol in the game and will pay the highest possible winning combination on a bet line.
Also, you should pay attention to the two stacked symbols in the game, where the great excitement starts. A stacked symbol is made of three different “pieces” on a single reel. One of them has the image of Dracula and the other one is Lady symbol. When any part of a stacked symbol appears on a winning bet line, you will get higher payments than the average with the other game symbols. However, when you get the whole stacked Dracula figure and the whole Lady symbol, in reels 2 and 4 respectively, the free spins feature will be launched, awarding you 10 free spins. Within free spins only, a third stacked symbol might appear in reel three depicting Dracula and the Lady looking closely to each other. This symbol will give you two extra free spins.
One of the highlights of Dracula slot game by Netent is the bat feature, which adds to the game originality. Randomly during the game, a lot of bats will fly across the screen “between” you face and the game reels, almost wholly covering the reels. This cloud of bats will finally land on the spinning reels forming different clusters, and when they do, they will turn into one same symbol, which can include the Wild symbol. Thus, you will get more chances of winning. In the free spins feature, the bat feature will be activated on every spin. Apart from giving you the chance for extra wins, the bat feature really add a realistic feel to the game, which will make you feel glad that you are only seeing them on your screen.
All this gameplay is all the time accompanied by a sitting Dracula to the left of the reels, every now and then startling you by shifting on his seat with sudden grunts and movements. The background music will add the necessary chilliness for every vampire story setting, providing you a great game experience and revisiting of the eerie atmospheres that are usual in these kind of myths. Once again, Netent has delivered a well designed and exciting game, which you can already try out right now in Betmotion.
