Dracula Slot Review
Dracula is a Net Entertainment-powered video slot with 5 reels, 4 rows and 40 paylines. It’s based on the 1931 vampire horror film which was loosely based on the Bram Stoker Dracula Novel. NetEnt have produced this slot in cooperation with Universal Studios and follow in the footsteps on slots like The Invisible Man, Creature from the Black Lagoon and Frankenstein. Anyway, Dracula is playable from just 20p a spin to as much as £200 a spin.
The game has an innovative Bat feature, Free Spins feature, stacked symbols, stacked wilds and normal wilds. You will notice Dracula is to the left of the reels with superb graphics, brilliant animations and spine-chilling sounds which really add to the atmosphere of the game.
In the base game, the Bat feature can be triggered at random – you will see bats fly across the reels in a cluster formation transforming all the bats into the same random symbol (including the wild). This can lead to big wins especially if the symbols are high value ones.
Then you have the Free Spins feature which is triggered when both the stacked Dracula symbol appears on the second reel and the stacked Lady symbol appears on the fourth reel simultaneously. You will then be rewarded with 10 free spins.
The bats will descend dramatically onto the reels for every single free spins which creates anticipation and excitement – this is because bats fly onto the reels and transform symbols. If 20 bats swoop onto the reels, the reels will be filled completely with bats! You are also rewarded with 2 extra free spins when the stacked wild symbol appears on the middle reels (during the feature).
Dracula is a little different layout wise to other NetEnt slots but, as usual and as expected, the graphics, animations and sound effects are brilliant. I have found that most of the bigger wins will come in the Free Spins feature despite big wins potential arising from the Bat feature.
The maximum amount that can be won is 400 times your stake which doesn’t sound very high but it’s decent. I consider Dracula to be a low to medium variance slot which I typically don’t like – saying that, I quite like Dracula. Wins are quite frequent in the base game and a lot more frequent in the free spins feature but there’s something about this game which will appease slot lovers. However, if you’re looking for higher volatility from NetEnt, you should try the superb Blood Suckers or the branded The Invisible Man.
