Count Dracula and his collection of female vampires form the theme to this horror-themed online slot from Elk Studios which offers intrepid players the chance to win free spins, respins and stacked symbols on the reels; it’s called Blood Lust and you can find out how it works below.
Blood Lust is a five reel slot with three rows and ninety nine fixed paylines; there’s a suitably gloomy atmosphere to the gameplay which takes place on gold-rimmed reels against a backdrop of dead Transylvanian trees and spooky castles.
The four higher value symbols are Dracula and his three groupie vampires we can differentiate by hair colour – red, blue and green; playing card symbols in red, blue, green and purple make up the lower values. The golden ‘Wild’ is wild and it will replace all standard symbols to help form winning combinations; the special icons are the Respin and Bonus symbols.
Landing at least three of the Bonus symbols anywhere in view will trigger the free spins and the number awarded is calculated by creating a rectangle around the positions where those Bonus symbols are; for example if the symbols were in three of the corners of the reels the rectangle would encompass the entire reel set and fifteen spins would be awarded.
When the spins start your task is to collect four instances of each vampire which will then turn into Dracula – the more Dracula symbols in view, the more higher value symbols there are to form profitable combos.
This is triggered by landing the Respin symbol on reel five and one symbol in view will be randomly selected; this symbol and any bonus symbols are locked in place for one respin to try and create a winning combo or even trigger the free spins.
We always like to see something a little different in a slot and Blood Lust gives us a clever (and actually quite obvious) way to calculate the number of free spins awarded – why has no one done this before? As a vampire-themed slot it’s up with the the best of this genre.
