Those pesky bloodsuckers have occupied our collective imaginations for several centuries now so it’s no surprise that in the age of online gaming we find ourselves playing slots themed on these nightwalkers; Vampires is the name of this particular game, it’s developed by Merkur Gaming and you can find out how it all works below.
Vampires is a five reel slot with three rows and twenty fixed paylines and those reels spin within a frame consisting of stone pillars topped with gargoyles; it’s a gloomy night in the background with the bare branches of creaking trees silhouetted in the moonlight.
The higher value symbols include a young woman with a tasty-looking neck, a creepy castle, a drinking vessel and a sword; 10, J, Q, K and A make up the lower values.
The vampire represents both the wild and the scatter symbols and he will substitute for all others to form winning combinations.
This is triggered by landing three or more of the vampire wild/scatter symbols anywhere in view and the first bit of good news is that you will receive fifteen free spins.
When the spins are underway any win with a wild symbol involved is important because those winning symbols will change into wilds for the rest of the round. The more winning combinations you make, the more wilds there’ll be somewhere on the reels for the next spin so by the last few spins you should be looking forward to some big wins.
Each win can be gambled and there are two options here:
- Card Gamble – bet on the colour of the next card drawn to double your winnings up to a maximum of £140.00.
- Ladder Gamble – work your way up a fruit machine-style ladder, again the maximum win is £140.00.
Vampires is quite a basic game somewhat rescued by the enhanced free spins round and some cartoonish symbol animations when a winning combo is formed; check it out if you like vampires but don’t hang about too long. It comes with an RTP of 96.00%.
