There is death in the air with the bone chilling 5-reel and 1-9 variable paylines slot Dracula's Blood Bank by 1x2 Gaming. This tale from the crypt offers you a chance at winning up to 400 coins per payline, but beware the undead!
For whom the bell tolls
Just about every symbol in this slot is designed with the undead theme in mind and so there are no annoying poker symbols to distract you. What you will find are coffins, tombstones, crucifixes, the hero Van Helsing and symbols including a male and female vampire and phantom amongst others. All the ingredients are there for a spooky game. The symbols are cartoon-like with a dark graveyard background revealed only by the shining light of a full moon. The sound of a cold wind ominously blows in the background and so too the screeching and screaming of a young virgin. The sound effects and music do a great job of reinforcing the theme, which is not without an amusing side to it that includes one-liners that are so bad that they are funny.
Going bat wild and free spins blood 'splatter'
To add to the experience, the developers have included a bat wild symbol, which can appear on any reel, and substitute for any symbol except the free spins scatter symbol. Next, you have the free spins splatter symbol... um we meant scatter symbol! This symbol can appear on any reel with 3, 4 or 5 awarding you with 5, 10 or 15 free spins. When this feature is active, all winnings have a 2x multiplier. If you have the fortune of drawing a win line containing only phantoms, male or female vampires you win a 150x prize. The feature cannot be re-triggered until the feature has finished.
The final word
Dracula's Blood Bank lets you control the size of your bet with amounts of as low as €0.01 to as high as €22.50. You control both the number of paylines from 1 to 9, the number of coins per payline of 1 to 5 and the coin value which can go from €0.01 to €0.50. The game has what is likely a medium variance, as most wins tend to be smaller or infrequent. With a maximum of nine paylines, this game would have benefited from some more generous features such as stacked wilds. The game does offer line wins with as little as 2 symbols as a pose to the more usual 3 symbols. With prizes of up to 400 coins, this is definitely not one of the higher paying slots out there but if you enjoy the theme, then this might be a game you want to try.
