Based on the movie from the 1930s and Bram Stoker’s gothic novel, NetEnt- the people behind classics such as Pyramid Quest for Immortality– have really pushed the boat out with the Dracula slot.
It has a stunning design (along with the Drive Slot it’s one of our favourite Net Ent games) with sharp animations and a genuinely scary soundtrack, plus some really cool game play features to enhance your wins.
It’s got that creepy Victorian feel about it like the Steam Tower slot (also by NetEnt). Watch out for those bat swarms my friends! Let’s take a look…
Look and Feel
As you’d expect from something developed in partnership with Universal Studios, the Dracula slot feels more like a movie than a game.
From the very beginning during the creepy intro (a girl is chased through dark and moody streets by an unseen terror), you know it’s going to be a good ‘un.
Well, Dracula’s almost certainly a wrong ‘un, but the game we mean- that’s a good ‘un.
Top Dracula Design
The Lord of the Vampires is a handsome fella with big old muscles who’s sporting a tight singlet… But ladies beware, this hottie might look the part, but he’ll go for your jugular quicker than you can say, ‘where’s my ruddy crucifix?’
Our bloodsucking host watches over your spins to the left of the reels and comes to life with creepy fanged hiss when you get a win, but he’s not all bad, as it turns out he’s in love with the beautiful damsel that acts a Stacked Wild (more on that later).
All the symbols are 3D animated, and design touches such the swarming bats on each spin, render this game the most sophisticated we’ve seen in a while. Along with the atmospheric background music, Dracula slot really does give this Wombat the heeby jeebies.
Dracula Slot Game Play
There are 5-reels with 4 rows and 40-pay-lines in this bloodsucking slot. The high value symbols are made up of Dracula himself, and 3 other characters who we’re not sure are his victims or accomplices.
Either way they are; a boozy-looking fella, the rich plump woman with a tiny dog, a bloke with a handful of coins and a mysteriously beautiful woman.
The J, Q, K and A represent the lower values, while your Wild symbol is the big, bloody ‘W’ which appears on reels 2,3, and 4.
This little extra took us by surprise, but we love it! When the Bat Feature is randomly triggered, Dracula suddenly turns himself into a plague of bats and swoops anywhere onto the reels in a cluster formation!
These fanged beauties cover the screen with a specific symbol to give you more chances for big wins.
Stacked Wilds and Free Spins
Get the two Stacked Wild symbols – Dracula or the Lady – at the same time on reels 2 and 4 respectively, and it’s 10 Free Spins time for you.
During this bonus, each spin triggers off the Bat Feature, plus a new symbol appears on reel 3 – the Vampire and his leading lady in an embrace.
This symbol only becomes properly visible if it’s part of a winning combo, and if it is, the couple will cover the entire reel while you’ll pick up an extra 2 spins!
The Dracula slot is one of NetEnt’s best. It’s jam-packed with features and has super-cool graphics. Best of all, we LOVE it when the Vampire Lord turns into a bat and randomly changes the symbols on the reels.
This a one truly scary game with its chilling theme, terrifying soundtrack, and creepy animations… Grab your garlic and holy water and give this one a spin.
Mobile Dracula Slot
There’s nowhere to hide. This slot plays just as well on your mobile or your tablet. Watch those bats swarm!
Wombat Score: 5/5
A fantastic slot. Top marks for the man with the fangs.
Dracula Slot FAQs
- What happens in the Bat Feature?
Well, this is triggered randomly and is pretty cool, I must say. A swarm of bats land on the reels and turn symbols wild.
- How do I trigger the Free Spins in the Dracula slot?
You need to land the two Stacked Wild symbols – Dracula and the Lady – at the same time on reels 2 and 4 respectively. Then it’s 10 Free Spins time for you.
- Is Dracula the best Vampire slot out there?
You know what? We reckon it is. Well, maybe Immortal Romance gives it a run for its money on game play, but not visually.
