Based on the comic book featuring a meta-morphing soldier, Blood Shot is a 5 reel, 40 payline slot from Pariplay. It comes with randomly added wilds and a bonus wheel that awards multiplier prizes or 1 of 2 free spin rounds. Play from between 40p and £40 per spin.

For those unfamiliar with the source material, Blood Shot centres on a former soldier who can re-generate thanks to the special nanites that are injected into his blood. The design here stays true to the comic book roots and has a noir feel.

Symbols include armour, grenades and an assortment of weaponry. They are joined by a quartet of characters from the comic book. The most rewarding of these is boss man Don Gino Canelli. Land 3, 4 or 5 of these and you’ll pocket 60, 140 or 1,500 coins.

There’s also a wild that can land anywhere on the reels and replace all other symbols bar the bonus. Landing 3, 4 or 5 reels on a payline awards 100, 250 or 2,500 coins. The wilds are also central to the most regularly hitting feature.

Wild Nanites Random Wilds feature – on any spin, a nanite can roll onto the reels and in the process, drop a random collection of extra wilds onto the reels. These will then be in play on the spin that follows.

Bloodshot himself is the game’s bonus symbol – land 3, 4 or 5 of these anywhere on the reels on the same spin and you’ll trigger the Bonus Wheel feature. Here you get to spin a wheel. Depending on where the pointer lands, you’ll receive a multiplier prize which is applied to your total bet or 1 of the 2 free spins features.

Wild Nanites Free Games feature – here you’ll be awarded 3 free spins. A nanite will appear on each free spin, transforming up to 5 reels into wild wilds.

Blood Shot Attack Free Spins feature – 7 free spins are on offer here. On each free spin, a wild will hit which will then be frozen for the duration of the feature.

Blood Shot is a terrific looking slot – the imagery is well drawn and the bass heavy backing track gives the game a really menacing feel. We landed the nanite random wilds regularly and they delivered a steady stream of lower level base game wins. The free spins were much harder to come by but they delivered some strong rewards when they did thanks to the extra wilds.

This slot will appeal to comic book fans. The extra features make it worth a look even if you’ve never set eyes on the Blood Shot comic book before. If you like comic book themed slots, iSoftBet’s Heavy Metal Warriors is worth playing. I would also recommend you try 1 of Pariplay’s other branded titles, Sharknado.
