Blood Lore Vampire Clan is a 5 reel, 20 payline from NextGen Gaming. Playable from 20p to £500 per spin across desktop, mobile and tablet devices, it has a vampire theme. It’s all about the Free Games feature where you can benefit from a multiplier up to 6x.

Visually, Blood Lore Vampire Clan won’t win any prizes – it looks a little dated and doesn’t feature high definition graphics. The soundtrack is a horror/rock tune which can be a little irritating truth be told. Symbols on the reels include vampires, churches, guns and potions and lower value playing cards (A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9).

The vampire queen (the redhead with blood dripping from her mouth) is the wild symbol – she is also the most valuable symbol as she will reward you with 250times your stake if you manage to get 5 on a payline. She also substitutes for all symbols except the scatter and doubles wins when part of a winning combination.

However, Blood Lore Vampire Clan is all about the Free Games feature which is triggered by getting 3 or more scattered moon symbols anywhere on the reels – 3 will give you 12 free spins whilst 4 will give you 16 free spins. If you manage to get 5, you will be rewarded with 20 free spins. All wins are subject to a 3x multiplier

Now, the Queen Vampire wild symbol is all important as it doubles wins when part of a win – this means that all wins involving a wild symbol will be subject to a 6x multiplier. Furthermore, you can retrigger the feature by getting 3 or more Moons during a free spin – this means you can benefit from up to 40 free spins in total (with a potential 6x multiplier).

Blood Lore Vampire Clan is a very simple slot and visually it’s not the best NextGen Gaming has produced by any stretch of the imagination – for some reason though, it has its charm. The Free Games feature is very good due to the 6x multiplier possible on each free spin.

I consider it to be a medium to high variance game and one which I would play around Halloween – there are better NextGen Gaming titles available such as the volatile 300 Shields and the mythical Great Wild Elk.
