Game of the Week – Dracula
Dracula is the king of classic horror movie monsters. There have been multiple reimaginings of the classic tale from Bram Stoker. There are also multiple online slot games featuring the dark lord. Stakelogic recently released their own spin on the tale, releasing Dracula slots.
The game features a modernized spin on the legend along with the potential to win massive prizes. Let’s learn more about this game and the bonus features it offers.
Dracula The Latest Retelling of the Classic Vampire Novel
Whether you’ve read Bram Stoker’s original novel or you’ve watched one of the dozens of movies about Dracula, you’re familiar with the tale. Dracula from Stakelogic is a 5-Reel, 25 payline slot game featuring primary characters from the story.
Pay symbols for this game include Royals, Renfield, Lucy, Van Helsing, and Dracula himself. Whether the female vampire is Lucy or Mina is up for you to decide, but she looks a lot like Alexa Bliss from the WWE, which makes me think it is Lucy.
The Wild symbol substitutes for all symbols except the scatter and bonus symbols. It also is a paying symbol on two or more on a payline.
In almost all cases, you will only turn a profit on a single-line win with four of a kind or better. Otherwise, you will need multi-line wins. Fortunately, there are a couple of features that can help you increase your odds of scoring a big win.
The Bonus symbol is the first of two scatters. To trigger the bonus game, you must land the Bonus symbol on Reels 1, 2, and 3. When this happens, you’ll trigger the Bonus feature.
In the feature, you’ll pick one of 12 chests. The first chest will always contain a prize. Afterward, you’ll continue to pick chests to try and win additional prizes. This will continue until you find an empty chest.
Note that if you trigger the feature with four or five Bonus symbols, you’ll get a multiplier. Four Bonus symbols gives you a 1.5x multiplier while five gives you a 2x multiplier.
I was able to trigger this once and won about 11x my initial bet. Not too shabby.
Free Spins Game
The vampire skull is the scatter for this game. Get three or more scatters to get 10 free spins. During the free spins round, all wins are tripled. The Bonus game can be triggered during free spins and free spins are re-triggerable. Also, the scatter is a paying symbol on two or more on a payline.
I triggered this feature once as well and won about 14.5x my initial bet. That’s not the greatest of wins, particularly considering it took a while to trigger the feature.
The Super Stake side bet gives you a chance to activate an extra feature at random. To take advantage of this, click the Super Stake button. This will double your bet.
The bonus feature this activates is Random Wilds. When triggered, wilds will be added to a losing spin. You’ll get from 1 to 10 wilds. It triggers about once in every 29 spins on average. The first time I hit this I only received about a 20x winner. The second time I hit this, it paid about 53 times my total bet.
Overall, this feature seems to pay off a lot better than the others, so if you don’t mind the extra variance, it could be worth trying out.
Dracula a True Medium Variance Slot Game
Dracula from Stakelogic has an RTP of 95.6%, right about average. Stakelogic lists the game as Low-Medium variance and I can concur. I tested this game extensively and in the end, I finished up less than half of a bet. If not for the mega win in Super Stake, I would have probably lost money.
Dracula is a fun game for those that like the classic vampire tale. However, don’t expect to walk away a massive winner. With that said, you won’t lose a ton of money either. You can find Dracula at Slotto Cash, Casino Max, or all real money online casinos offering Stakelogic slots.
