Blood Suckers by Net Entertainment
The Blood Suckers slot machines was created by one the more innovative game designers, Net Entertainment. This is a 5-reel and 25 pay line video slot machine with a thoroughly creative, if slightly sinister theme. The game features the NetEnt Skill Stop feature, a rewarding Free Spin Bonus game, a Vampire-Slaying Bonus aspect, and the usual Scatter and Wild symbols.
Net Entertainment have a proud reputation within the industry or creating games with very different themes and inordinately good and detailed graphics. Blood Suckers most assuredly falls into both categories. This slot game is all about vampires as portrayed in the classic literature, and is suitably dark and menacing in graphic representations, background, animations and the music. This game was first unveiled in 2009, and has been instrumental in establishing NetEnts’ reputation as well as their overall and enduring popularity.
Game Settings to Suit All and Sundry
The Blood Suckers video slot machine game is available at NetEnt associated casino sites, and can therefore be played for free or for real money. The coin denomination options in the game range from 0.01 up to 0.50, and players can stake up to 4 coins per pay line. This practically means that the smallest bet on Blood Suckers slot is 0.01 coins, and the maximum bet per spin is 50 coins. The top jackpot in the Blood Suckers base game is 7 500 coins.
In keeping with NetEnt game characteristics, symbols generally pay left to right in consecutive order except for the Vampire Bride scatter symbols, which pay any direction. The theoretical average return to player is an exceptionally high 98.0%, and with the pay lines not being fixed, winnings are paid only on activated pay lines, and it is a game where players should know that their winning odds are at a premium when all pay lines are activated.
The Symbols to Look Out For
The highly noticeable Vampire Bite symbol is the Wild symbol in Blood Suckers slot game. This particularly creepy symbol behaves like a standard wild symbol and acts to substitute for other symbols to complete winning combinations. The Vampire Bite Wild symbol does, however, not substitute for the Vampire Bride Scatter symbol, nor the Wooden Stake Bonus symbol in triggering the Vampire Slaying game.
The Vampire Bride and the Wooden Stake Bonus symbol as mentioned, may be particularly ominous in looks, but function as the Scatter symbols. This means that neither of these symbols need to appear along an activated pay line. They can appear anywhere on the five reels to complete winning combinations. Three or more Vampire Bride Scatter symbols trigger the Free Spin Bonus game.
The Bonus Features in Blood Suckers
The Free Spins Bonus game, when activated, provides players with ten free spins, and all winning combinations achieved during the game are multiplied by 3. The Free Spins Bonus game is played at the game activating wager and stake, and players will be delighted to know that the free spins can be re-triggered.
Another feature game in Blood Suckers slots is activated by three or more Wooden Stake Bonus Scatter symbols, and this is the Vampire Slaying Bonus Feature game. Players are taken to a menacing vampire setting with a range of coffins. Selecting a coffin reveals a vampire, which is slain for large bonus rewards. The Vampire Slaying Bonus game ends when an empty coffin, with only bats inside, is erroneously selected.
Blood Suckers may not be for the faint-hearted but the possibility of winning on this game is statistically very high, and the entertainment value is immense.
