Dracula has been a theme common to the media since its most popular incarnation in Bram Stoker’s classic novel. The theme is also widely used in the entertainment and casino industry, and Net Entertainment is no stranger.
Their edition of Dracula, a video slots game featuring five reels, four rows, and forty pay lines, offers players an enhanced gaming experience with numerous special and bonus features, such as wild symbols, stacked wilds, free spins, and a bonus game. The game itself has been released by Net Entertainment in agreement with Universal Studios, and it is based on the Dracula motion picture franchise.
Hitting the Jackpot
Players will receive a pay out when they land a winning combination on an active pay line. A winning combination is formed when three matching symbols appear next to each other, from left to right. Before game play commences, players will need to select their bet levels, adjusted according to coin denomination, number of active pay lines, and coins to be bet per pay line. Thereafter, they can begin playing the game by hitting the spin button and wait for winning combinations to be landed.
The Wild, Substituting Others
The wild symbol in NetEnt’s Dracula video slots game is represented by the ‘W’ symbol, fittingly depicted in a blood red colour. The wild symbol in this game can appear on any of the reels and it may appear during the base game and during the free spins feature. The wild symbol may be used to substitute any of the other symbols to form the best possible winning combination with the highest payout.
The Dracula Bat Feature
The bat feature is the randomly-triggered special bonus feature of the Dracula video slots game. In this feature, the figure of Dracula, who generally sits next to the reels, will transform into a bunch of bats and fly over the reels. These bats will land somewhere on the reels and turn a randomly selected number of symbols into one also randomly chosen symbol. This includes the wild symbol. Having any or all of the reels transform into one symbol will increase a player’s chances of hitting winning combinations. While the bat feature is randomly triggered in the base game, it is a standard addition to the free spins rounds, where the bats will fly out over the reels after every spin.
The Free Spins Feature
If players land stacked wilds on the second and fourth reels simultaneously, this will trigger the game’s free spins feature. Players will instantly be rewarded with ten free spins. Once the free spins feature has been activated, the bat feature will come into play after every spin. In addition, stacked wilds can now also appear on the third reel to substitute other symbols to create winning combinations. Having these appear will also grant players an additional two free spins, which will be added to the already received free spins. Free spins are played according to the same bet level as was active in the spin that first triggered the free spins feature.
