The Blood Suckers slot doesn’t disappoint in providing an eerie, blood-laced video slot experience. It has 5 reels and 25 paylines and has been designed with a high payout ratio that appeals especially to younger players. No doubt gamers will also appreciate the slot’s compatibility with Windows, Mac, and Linux laptop and computer operating systems.
The unique, vampire-slaying bonus game adds a fun-if somewhat gruesome-element to the Blood Suckers slot machine, which is overall very visually appealing with its throwback to Victorian illustrations of horror film characters.
In case you haven’t been paying attention vampires are hot right now. TV shows such as HBO’s True Blood and the Vampire Diaries continue to draw huge numbers of viewers, while movie series such as Twilight enjoy ongoing popularity.
Every symbol in the Blood Suckers slot game is reflective of the Victorian vampire genre. Illustrations are very detailed, somewhere between cartoonish and fine art, with lots of shading and colorful accents against a dark background. There aren’t any playing card symbols in this game; instead, every icon is an illustration of something vampire-related. Symbols include a clove of garlic, a blue potion vial, a bible with a silver cross atop it and the final one features an antique pistol, bow and bloodied arrow. Characters in the Blood Suckers slot include a winged female vampire and three male vampires, one of whom is a handsome man holding a goblet of blood. The other two vampires are a bit creepier to look at. One has very gray skin, long black hair and a red jeweled turban, while the other is green-skinned, bald and has frightfully long pointy ears and fingers. Haunting, wind-blowing sounds make up the background noise and a dramatic organ chord plays when you land on a winning combination.
Scatter wins, free spins, wild substitutes and a vampire-slaying bonus game make up the Blood Suckers slot playing experience. The Wild symbol features a ghastly vampire biting a lovely maiden’s neck and substitutes for all symbols except for the Bonus and Scatter symbols. Three or more Scatter symbols across any of the reels gifts you with 10 free spins and your winnings are tripled while playing in free spins mode.
Hone your vampire-slaying skills when you activate the Bonus game by lining up three or more successive Bonus symbols across an active bet line. These Bonus symbols are marked by a bloodied hammer and stake. The game carries you deep into a dark, stone burial chamber filled with antique coffins. Spooky violin music begins to play, highlighted by the haunting thud of doors slamming and a grandfather clock chiming. When you open a coffin containing a vampire, a wooden stake appears and stabs the vampire in the heart, spraying blood on the ground around the coffin. The game ends when you click on one of three empty coffins. These are instead filled with bats that fly out when the lid is opened. Once you click on an empty coffin, all the remaining closed coffin lids slide open and your total bonus score is revealed.
