With Halloween just a fortnight away, it’s the ideal time to enjoy some classic Gothic horror and Iron Dog Studio is offering just that care of its latest release, Blood Queen. It’s a 5 reel, 30 payline game that takes place in a moonlit graveyard and comes with creepy sound and visuals and an entertaining Free Spins feature.
Visually, Blood Queen impresses – the lower value symbols are set within gem-encrusted pendants and are joined by elephant tusks, demons and rubies. The most rewarding symbols are the dandyish Van Hell and the Blood Queen herself. Helping your winning chances is the grotesque-looking gargoyle – land 1 of these in the top position of a reel and it will drop down to turn the whole of the reel wild.
The main feature offering in Blood Queen is the Free Spins feature – once triggered, you can look forward to 20, 30 or 50 free spins. You’ll then be offered the choice of 2 rounds. Opt for the Van Hell free spins and you’ll receive spreading Holy Water Wilds that move around the reels for the 4 free spins after they hit. Choose the Blood Queen free spins and Blood Potion Wilds are in play – these can turn any of the middle 3 reels wild when they hit before shifting 1 reel to the left with each free spin that follows.
It might not boast the widest range of bonus features you’ll see but the stacked wilds and 2 free spin rounds offer some very decent potential. Land more than 1 stacked gargoyle wild on the same spin and the results can be anything but ugly.
Design wise, Blood Queen pushes all the right buttons. There’s a Hammer House of Horror quality to the soundtrack which gives the game a definite eerie edge. The visuals aren’t bad either. Variance wise, it’s high with potential payouts of up to 4,000 times your total stake on each spin!
If you’re looking for a game to get you in the mood for the spookiest time of the year then an audience with the Blood Queen is well worth undertaking – check out the Blood Queen slot review for more details.
