Come with us now as we journey into the realms of the bloodsuckers in this online slot machine from Barcrest; it’s called Vampire Desire and it offers clever features like Lock It Link, Mighty Reels, the Vamp It Up option and up to one hundred paylines in the main bonus.
Vampire Desire is a five reel slot with five rows and fifty paylines in the base game; those reels spin on a set of gates providing an entrance through huge walls into the vampire’s castle behind.
The six higher value symbols are an assortment of theme-related objects such as roses, skulls, blood, bats and gargoyles while playing card symbols represent the lower values.
The swarm of bats is wild, it can appear stacked on the reels and it will replace all standard symbols to help create winning matches; the red heart is the bonus symbol.
Landing a wild symbol fully in view will trigger this feature in which the gates behind the reels will creak open and the number of paylines in use will be doubled to one hundred.
Vamp It Up
If your stake is at least £2.00 per spin you have the option to click the Vamp It Up button in the top right hand corner; after this any win worth at least 2.5x the stake will spin the bonus wheel and award up to a 5x win multiplier or instant access to the Lock It Link feature.
Lock It Link
This is triggered by landing three red hearts on the same row or via the Vamp It Up bonus wheel; to begin with each heart will be upgraded to a gold one and annotated with a multiplier of up to 10x. They will also slide together and three spins will be awarded with each symbol position spinning individually. Only blue and red hearts are active (the others symbols are blanked out) during this feature and each time they land they’ll lock in place with multiplier values attached; three or more hearts of a similar colour grouped horizontally or vertically will become gold hearts, as will any heart which lands adjacent to these groups. Spin with a new link created will increase all gold multipliers by 0.5x.
But there’s more still – any red heart linking to locked hearts will reset the number of spins to three while any blue hearts linking will activate Mighty Reels and reset the number of spins to four. When the spins end the total win is multiplied by the total multiplier values in view.
Barcrest clearly enjoy a complex bonus feature but this one works well and it can prove to be a big winner once all those multipliers are added up and extra spins are awarded; Vampire Desire is an enjoyable horror-themed slot which should not just be played on Halloween.
