The intro shows a young girl being chased through the village streets by…well who knows what? Now I’m one that would normally skip past the intro and head straight for the action but stick with this one as it has great visual and audio effects and as you would expect from NetEnt these effects are carried on throughout the game which makes for a very atmospheric and spooky experience.
Dracula Slot Basics
Dracula is a 5 reel 4 row 40 line slot with free spins, wild substitutions, stacked symbols, stacked wilds and a bat feature. The game is played with 40 bet lines (these are fixed and cannot be changed) 1-10 bet levels with varying coin sizes that range from 1p to £1 which gives a minimum bet of 20p and the maximum of £200, catering well for all levels of bankrolls.
The reels are made up from a mix of profile pictures of the characters within the story ranging from Dracula and a beautiful lady to a rather plump lady with a lamp!; there is also the now standard J Q K A symbols that come in the form of a shield.
Wild symbols can appear anywhere on reels 2, 3 and 4 in only the main game and substitute for all symbols.
If you want those big wins…and yes we do! You will need to hit 5 of the Dracula or Bride symbols, this will leave you screaming with delight as this is the largest of the pay-outs at 200, I did find with this slot that you do tend to get a lot more of the smaller wins, don’t let this put you off however as this is more than made up for with excellent Bat Feature
Dracula Slot Bonus Rounds
The main screen shows your reels and a rather dark menacing looking chap sitting on a chair, yes it’s Dracula and believe me you want to see him angry as this activates the Bat Feature. Watch as Dracula disappears only to be replaced by bats that fly across the reels randomly landing on between 4-12 reels, all the bats in the cluster turn into the same randomly activated symbol, including the Wild symbol which can result in some very impressive wins.
Free spins are activated when a fully visible stacked Dracula symbol appears on reel 2, and a fully visible stacked Lady symbol appearing simultaneously on reel 4, during the main game, activating 10 free spins.
A further 2 extra free spins can also be gained when a fully visible stacked Wild symbol appears on reel 3.
As an added bonus and what makes the free spins really lucrative is that the Bat Feature appears on every single free spin, the number of bats also increase from 4-12 in the main game to an impressive 4-20 during free spins.
Dracula Slot - Conclusion and Next Steps
I really enjoyed playing Dracula slot, with its gothic overtones and great visual effects coupled with a seriously creepy sound track this looks set to be a huge hit for NetEnt. The gameplay is slick and flawless, watch as Dracula starts to hiss and show his fangs in displeasure as you hit a winning spin, or watch a hoard of bats fly at the reels when hitting the spin button, these are nice touches that add to the drama and suspense without becoming annoying.
Dracula should be considered a low variance slot with smaller wins occurring on a regular basis, the larger wins mostly appearing in the free spins bonus round.
