The beginning of spring isn’t the most obvious time to launch a horror-themed slot but bgo Casino is doing precisely that with Vampire Princess of Darkness which has just gone live.
Created by Playtech, it’s a simple 5 reel, 5 payline game that comes with creepy design and a potentially exciting multi-stage pick me bonus round where some big prizes can be won.
All the ingredients for a classic horror are present and correct in Vampire Princess of Darkness. The reels are set against a brooding backdrop that’s dominated by a castle and woodlands and flanked by skulls and peering eyes.
The ghoulish theme is maintained on the reels themselves which include blood red A and K symbols alongside garlic, a crucifix, a goblet full of wine (or is it blood?) and an upside-down bat. The best symbol is the haunted castle which offers payouts of 1,500 times your bet if you manage to land 5 on a payline.
The range of extras isn’t wide here but the Graveyard Bonus feature can still deliver a pretty tasty payout punch. It’s triggered by landing gravestone scatters on reels 1, 3 and 5 on the same spin. You’ll then head to a moonlit graveyard where you’ll be offered a selection 6 headstones.
Choose 1 to reveal a cash prize. You’ll also progress to the next level where 5 stones are offered. Again, finding a cash amount moves you along a level where the number of stones in play is reduced and the prizes on offer increase. Keep on going until you pick a collect or you’ve successfully navigated all 5 stages.
We triggered the Graveyard Bonus feature at regular intervals and were pleasantly surprised at the possible results a good run of picks can deliver.
It’s not the flashiest game you’ll see either in terms of design or range of features. It’s a perfectly sturdy all-rounder though and the picks round can provide plenty of action. If you manage to fill the reels with haunted castles, prepare yourself for a frightening 7,500 times bet win!
If you’re a fan of the horror genre then a visit to the Vampire Princess of Darkness, even in the not so spooky month of March, is recommended.
