Is your room light on? Don't read this in the dark. There might be something behind you..quick...turn around and have a look now! No Dracula behind you hah? Thank god! Hahaha. Just to get you in a scary mood for my review on this scary game. Nah, I'm not afraid, but I know of a few people who do get goose bumps whenever they play this game, like the dreaded Dracula is right in front of them. Well, he is! The game I mean. Hehehe.
That fanged guy doesn't look like a Dracula, does he? More like a vampire to me, but what the heck, they are both the same. But does that sweet Lady knows that her guy is a vampire? Hmm, I guess she doesn't. Makes this game a little bit like Immortal Romance, the vampire bit, not the 'Troy-bites-the-girl' bit. Whatever it is, both Dracula and the Lady pays a very low 200x the line bet for 5 of them, both can be a Stacked symbol, Dracula on reel 2 and the Lady on reel 4, get both of them fully stacked and you get 10 free spins, but without any win multiplier. Now that is what I call a really cheap skate offer! Just 10 free spins with nothing more! Sheesh! There is also one more Stacked symbol, which is Dracula with the Lady, appearing only on reel 3, and only in the Free Spins game. Getting this Stacked symbol awards 2 more free spins, it can appear a few times during the Free Spins game, but it must appear fully stacked in order to award that 2 extra free spins. Appearing partly awards nothing. Another cheap skate excuse! Sheesh!
The red 'W' is the Wild symbol, a true blue dumb Wild as I would call it, can only substitute for other symbols to create a win, and can appear on reels 2, 3 and 4 in the main game only. Does that make it a doubly dumb Wild? Hmm. All 'figure' symbols pay a flat 60x the line bet, and all other symbols pay a flat 40x the line bet. Makes me wanna fall to the floor flat! What a blardy poor paytable!
A Bat Feature can be randomly activated in the main game, whereby a cluster of symbols get transformed into one same symbol. This cluster always happen on reels 2, 3 and 4 most of the time, but it doesn't always award a win! In the Free Spins game, this Bat Feature occurs for each and every spin, but, doesn't always end up with a win either! That's 2 more cheap skate moves as far as I'm concerned.
Playing Dracula was like playing the game with him sitting right in front of me. Not the scary bit, but scaring-away-all-the-wins bit! What I always get are dumb clusters that pay nothing most of the time! But when they do pay, it was mostly peanuts. This Dracula thing thinks I'm a monkey or what? I want nice cash wins, not peanuts! Sheesh!
Once in awhile, NetEnt would go dumb and release some bummers, probably on purpose, for a purpose. If you enjoy playing this game, all I can say is "hmm". With such a ridiculously low paytable, with a 5-reels 4-rows play area, big wins are totally seasonal and rare! I cannot even get any 50x total bet win in any of my sessions on this game, and Dracula has since fallen into my deep deep freezer, forever!
