There’s no doubt about it; when it comes to BIG names in the online gaming industry, Netent is one of the most well-known. Way back in 2013, the company released the timeless classic Blood Suckers. But, just like the ageless and immortal vampires that this blood-splattered game represents, this slot is still as popular nearly ten years later, even after the more recent release of the sequel, Blood Suckers II.
We’ll have a look at each in turn, so you can decide for yourself which one you want to sink your teeth into.
Blood Suckers (the original)
The original Blood Suckers slot is played on a 5 x 3 reel configuration and has 25 pay lines. The top prize is up to x 7,500 your stake, plus there are three bonus rounds.
So, as with any slot game, firstly, you need to select your bet amount, and once you are happy with that, it’s time to start spinning by clicking the green spin button in the centre of the game’s control panel. You also have the option of Autoplay by selecting how many spins you want to do by clicking the Autoplay button.
The actual gameplay is smooth on Blood Suckers, and if you love vampires and other scary stuff, then its downright creepy interface really does make this the perfect online slot for you.
Jam-packed with gory characters and slot symbols including vampires, garlic and potions, Blood Suckers has been illustrated superbly and is bought to life by the amazing animations.
Wilds symbols – the icons of which shows a beautiful blonde being bitten by a vampire – are incredibly useful on Blood Suckers, substituting for any symbol (except for Bonus and Scatter symbols) to create winning paylines.
The two main bonus features that are available on Blood Suckers are the Scatter Free Spins and Vampire Slaying Bonus Game.
Scatter Free Spins
When two or more vampire bride Scatter symbols are discovered on the reels, your winnings are multiplied for that spin. Two Scatter symbols will give you a x2 multiplier, three Scatters gives you a x4 multiplier plus an additional bonus of 10 free spins, with four Scatters will get you a stonking x25 multiplier plus your ten free spins, and five Scatters will again give you ten free spins but will also uncover a massive x100 multiplier.
Vampire Slayer Bonus Game
When three or more bonus symbols drop in from left to right, then you’ll unlock the phenomenal vampire-slaying bonus game. This bonus lets you open up coffins and kill the vampires inside.
You just need to click on any coffin and slay the vampire if there is one inside. You are awarded a coin for each vampire that you slay until you open one without a vampire, which is when the bonus game comes to an end.
If you love horror and vampires, this game really is perfect for you – especially the gory vampire-slaying bonus rounds.
Blood Suckers II
The long-anticipated sequel to Blood Suckers has rolled its way onto our screens in the online slots game Blood Suckers II. The whole game, which you can find in the slots section of most online casinos, has been enhanced to give you a much-improved vampiric experience.
Blood Suckers II can literally be summed up in just two words… dark and creepy!
The Victorian-Age looking vampires have not changed much, although in Blood Suckers II, they are a little more romanticized rather than scary and gruesome. The villains are the same, although the graphics are a lot better and have been modernized and bought up to date.
Miss Amelia Van Helsing is our heroine and appears beside the reels, ready to shoot any creepy vampire that gets in her way.
The goose-bump and hair-raising demonic background sounds, along with the eerie tunes, combine well to keep you on your toes whilst playing this game, and if you scare easily, we suggest you don’t play it in the dark.
As with the original game, Blood Suckers II has 25 paylines and is played over five reels. Before you start playing, select the amount you want to bet, then hit the button to get your reels spinning. Autoplay is also an option.
When it comes to gameplay and bonus features, this is where the game truly excels, as there are special features available to keep you entertained by the vampires.
Amelia can come to your rescue at random moments in the game by firing an extra Scatter for you when only two drop in – so that the free spin feature triggers.
Three or more scatter symbols in any position will win you 10 Blood Rose free spins. There is also a re-trigger which can happen when you get another three scatter symbols drop in whilst you are playing your free spins.
Hidden Treasure Bonus
This bonus game is a five-level bonus that gives you more than one way of winning.
The bonus round is triggered by three or more Bonus icons dropping in whilst you are playing, or alternatively, this bonus round can also be triggered by four or five Scatter symbols landing, which gives you a x2 or x3 multiplier.
Clicking on various coffins and treasure chests, you have the chance to win Scatters, Keys or Instant Cash Prizes. The game ends when you open a coffin or chest, and there is a demon inside.
Blood Suckers II is a distinct advance on the popular Blood Suckers slot. It’s suited to anyone seeking to have a go on a chilling slot, especially if you enjoy the feeling of being scared after just a few spins.
