This superb Net Ent design is based on the Universal Studios version of the Dracula fable. This standard five reel, three row slot really is a superb depiction of the blood thirsty Count, with the reel format being about the only thing that is conventional on this stunning conversion. The reels are set in front of a gloomy, foggy backdrop, with a creepy modern incarnation of Count Dracula himself slouching in a chair, breathing heavily and tapping his fingers impatiently to the left of the reels. Meanwhile, the portentous, brooding movie score runs in the background, punctuated by the occasional spooky growl, creak and evil laugh. This game can be played on any device, and indeed it does look good on even the most compact mobile or tablet. But this is a game that truly comes into its own on the larger screen. Preferably with some decent speakers and a sound bar too! The reel characters are Count Dracula, his Lady in waiting, and a trio of alternative spooky looking characters. These are supplemented by a few gothic looking playing cards values. With the scene truly set, it’s time to spin those reels.
With up to forty potential winning lines, you can set your stake level at various amounts between 20p all the way up to £200 per spin. Pressing or tapping the game’s spin button not only sets the reels in motion, but also disturbs a swarm of bats which flutter away into the distance as the reels come to a shuddering halt. The Wild symbol is a blood coloured “W”. This can substitute for all the other characters, and can appear on the central three reels. Any win stirs the recumbent Dracula into action. A small prize results in a gentle satisfied roar. But be warned, the bigger the win, the more animated the Count becomes. Win big, and he almost jumps out of the screen at you! Ten free spins can be activated by achieving two stacked symbols on reels two and four. You need to get Count Dracula himself on the left central reel, while his lady must appear on the right central reel. During your free spins, stacked Wilds can appear on the central reel. If they do – you get two further free goes.
Ass if this gargantuan gothic game was not scary enough, you also get to experience the Bat feature. In the main game, this can be randomly activated at any time. Count Dracula, who is sat staring at you at all times during your spins, suddenly roars into action, disintegrating into a fearsome cloud of bats. These fly off and land in a swarm on your reels, turning a cluster of characters into the same random symbol, increasing your chances of achieving a winning combination. During your free spins, this feature is activated on every spin.
This is a truly enthralling game, but not for the faint-hearted. The brooding atmosphere is set from the start of the trailer to through the main game and into your free spins. The blood thirsty Count has his eye on you at all times. Never have wins been more thrilling… The expected Return to Player rate (RTP) for this tile is over 96%.
