The Monkey Summary
Those fine slot purveyors NetEnt have teamed up with Universal Pictures to create their version of the blood thirsty horror of the famous Count in the Dracula Slot!
This game is right up there with a high scare value and loaded with bonus fun too.
The graphics are off the scale on this game- it’s like something Q might have dreamt up. Fire it up next to a more traditional game like Agent Jane Blonde and you’ll see what we mean! The soundtrack is pretty menacing too, it reminds me a bit of Psycho.
Dracula’s base game boasts a rewarding Bat feature, free spins bonus game with a 400x your stake (get it?) win up for grabs.
These graphics wouldn’t look out of place on the big screen. Dracula is a visual feast, even if you’re feasting on something rather pretty! It’s got that dark atmospheric feel about it like our Kaiju slot game, but then I guess we are talking vampires here.
You won’t be able to ignore the short teaser clip before the game begins which nearly had my eyebrow up in terror before I’d even spun a reel. It’s worth watching to set the scene and the game’s menacing feel.
The reels are set in an atmospheric mist, the perfect hunting ground for the beastly central character, Dracula, to seek out his victims in. To the left of the reels sits the animated count himself, looking like he missed breakfast. He’s ready to pounce alright, don’t let that calm demeanor fool you. To the right of the reels is an anxious maiden who looks a tad concerned for her safety! This is no Red Riding Hood slot my chums, although there is quite a bit of red in it.
Dracula Slot Play
The Dracula Slot is a 5 reel, 4 row and 40 pay-line adventure into the dark side, and we are not talking Darth Vader and his chums.
The highest value icons of the game are three nasty looking characters, a woman and two men who look like they’re up to no good. The lower value icons are the Ace through Jack of the card deck in old fashioned lettering.
The game’s Wild is appropriately a blood red letter “W” but this sanguine symbol only appears on reels 2, 3 and 4. Keep your eyes open for the wicked Count himself and his potential victim, a beautiful maiden, which can appear fully stacked on reels 2 and 4 respectively. These characters are the key to unlocking the main feature.
As you’d expect from a night stalker with flying pets, the base game has a Bat Feature that is triggered at random. Suddenly and rather spectacularly, the Prince of Darkness will turn into a cloud of flying bats landing on the reels and usefully changes symbols on the reels into matching icons, including the Wild, to make you some hard cash. Now that’s “bloody” useful, excuse my French.
You need to simultaneously land Dracula and his intended victim on their respective reels, 2 and 4, to start the free spins coming. The feature begins with a respectable 10 free spins and while those spins take place, horrid swarms of bats cluster over the reels lucratively changing symbols. Oh yes, my chums, that lovely Bat feature is active here too.
Watch out for a special icon that shows a softer side to the Count (you big softie you) when a romantic looking Count and his Maiden appear in a shared image. If you land this on the middle reel you will net yourself a welcome two additional spins. Maybe there’s more to this calculating killer than meets the eye!
The Dracula Slot is a low to medium variance slot, and can be pretty rewarding if your luck is in. This primate found that it was relatively easy to trigger the bonus features. NetEnt and Universal must be pretty pleased with themselves creating a game that looks terrifyingly good with enough distractions and cash making fun to have you coming back for more daunting drama.
This is one of the best looking slots we have seen out there.
