As you’d expect given the title, Bloodlines is a vampire themed slot, this time about a woman finding some dark secrets hidden among her ancestors. Created by Genesis Gaming it’s a blood curdling 5 reel, 100 payline affair that comes with a free spins feature where the coffin symbols are stacked wilds and wins receive a 3x multiplier. Play from between £1 and £100 per spin.

Bloodlines is a pretty gruesome looking slot – symbols include a vampire in various threatening poses, including sinking his teeth into the neck of some poor unfortunate. There’s also a victim in chains – light-hearted comic horror this ain’t. They’re joined by playing card symbols from A to 9.
The reels are set against a dark, black backdrop with the action playing out to a guitar heavy, rock horror soundtrack – the symbols aren’t the clearest you’ll find but they match the dark theme rather well.

There is just 1 bonus feature on offer in Bloodlines but it’s a good one – find 3 or more scatters and you’ll win between 5 and 50 times your total stake. You’ll also trigger the Vampire Free Spin feature and be awarded 15 free spins.

There are goodies galore on offer during the feature – first and foremost, every winning spin will benefit from a 3x multiplier with all winning payouts trebled. Look out too for the coffin symbol – this will appear as a stacked wild and really give your winning chances a boost. Finally watch for the scatters – 3 of them during the feature and you can look forward to 15 more free spins (taking your total to 30), complete with the multiplier and stacked wilds.

Playing all 100 paylines may be a little expensive for micro stakes players – the paylines are easily adjusted though thanks to the meter to the side of the reels, if you want to opt for something cheaper.

Many vampire-themed slots have a comic feel but that’s not the case in Bloodlines which is proper horror fare as there’s plenty for chiller fans to enjoy here. Even if you don’t particularly like this genre, the bonus feature makes it worth playing where the 3x multiplier complete with stacked wilds can deliver some impressive results. If you like horror themed slots, I highly recommend the high variance Blood Suckers by NetEnt and the iconic Immortal Romance by Microgaming.
