Bram Stocker’s novel of the same name served as a starting point for Dracula video slot, although the game developers also needed to acquire a license from Universal Studios as Dracula is part of their monsters collection of horror films.
Net Entertainment has clearly done an excellent job as the finished product looks even better than we have expected, as outstanding visuals, great animations and incredibly realistic sound effects create a one-of-a-kind atmosphere on the reels.
Net Entertainment rolled out Dracula on desktop and mobile in April 2015 as one of their flagship titles and chances are that the game will go on to become one of their favourite slot titles ever.
That is not to say that previous NetEnt games are not of high quality, but this one does impress on so many levels. The well known software provider has launched quite a few premium titles over the last couple of years and Dracula definitely falls into said category.
How to Play
With clusters of bats depicted in the background on also flying to the reels from time to time, the game screen may seem a bit crowded, but the bottom panel is easy to spot and it contains all the necessary bet options.
Players can simply choose coin value from $0.01 to 1 as well as select desired bet level (1-10), whereas the game is played at fixed 40 paylines, but default wager is just 20 credits. This is wet another perk that should not be taken for granted.
Obtain Stacked Dracula symbol on reel II and Stacked Lady symbol on reel IV at the same time, and 10 free spins will be activated. Any Stacked Wild fully visible on reel III awards extra 2 free spins, and you are likely to get at least two or three of these during the feature. You will be glad to hear that the total amount won the first time the Free Spins round was activated was over 75x total bet.
Bat Feature is active throughout the Free Spins. At the beginning of each spin, a cluster of bats will land on the reels before all turning into the same symbol. This will usually result in big wins. It is important to note that Bat Feature can strike randomly in the main game.
Dracula video slot doesn’t have such an impressive maximum payout since 80,000 coins is the maximum you can win per single spin, but it is the game’s overall winning potential that is much more important looking from player’s perspective.
And this is where we have some great news. Four rows of symbols and forty paylines ensure that main game wins appear quite frequently and if you get the Bat Feature to strike every once in a while, you will have a very good opportunity to make a decent profit.
You should know by now that we usually restrain for overhyping video slots, but we have to give credit where credit is due. Dracula is quite simply one of the best slot games we have reviewed and we seriously doubt you will have any objections.
The NetEnt title quickly lures you in with engaging storyline and expert animations, but the best thing about it is that it actually gives players a chance to earn some money.
