Enjoy some high “stakes” action in NetEnt’s Blood Suckers, a devilishly addictive title that has long-since established itself as one of the most popular video slots released by the studio. Featuring a vampire-based theme that sees all manner of ghoulish creatures appear on its reels, the slot benefits from a blood-spattered bonus feature and a special free spins mode in which players can earn an unlimited number of bonus games. With a top base game award of 7,500x up for grabs and up to 25 active paylines also available, the slot really has established itself as an (oc)cult classic.
Given its slightly macabre name, it should come as no huge surprise that Blood Suckers is a game that is littered with vampire references. The slot is set in front of an eerie looking backdrop where a bloody handprint appears on a nearby wall, while the symbols to feature on the reels include all manner of undead beings and associated paraphernalia including garlic, crosses, holy water and crossbows. The game’s background ambience includes howling winds, creaks and distant footsteps to create a chilling user experience, while the bonus feature actually sees players lift the lids on multiple coffins in order to drive a stake through the hearts of the various vampires lurking within.
The two main selling points in Blood Suckers are a free spins feature in which players can sink their teeth into 10 free games initially and a pick-and-click bonus which takes place on an entirely new screen. Dealing with them in order, the free spins are activated whenever three or more vampire bride scatter symbols appear anywhere on the reels, with this awarding players with an instant cash prize and 10 bonus games. Free spins can be retriggered indefinitely by landing three more scatter symbols and all winnings will also be subject to a 3x prize multiplier for the duration of this feature. The pick-and-click bonus round, meanwhile, is activated whenever three or more stake and hammer symbols appear anywhere on the reels, with this transporting players to a creepy mausoleum where they must open coffins to stake vampires. Every vampire they uncover will award a cash amount, while opening an empty coffin will return players to the base game reels.
One of the older NetEnt titles, Blood Suckers features a slightly different user interface from some of the studio’s more modern games, but it is nevertheless one that is very easy to get to grips with. Clearly labelled buttons are used to control players’ bet level from 1-4, their coin value from £0.01-£0.50 and their number of active paylines from 1-25. These three factors combined make the game playable from anywhere between £0.01 and £50.00 and all pays are visible under the paytable tab.
If you’re looking for a video slot with plenty of bite, you’ll love NetEnt’s Blood Suckers. Undoubtedly one of the most successful games ever released by the studio, the slot certainly won’t drain your bankroll thanks to its free spins and awesome bonus feature, while the eerie atmosphere and chilling sounds make it a must-play title for any would-be vampire hunters out there.
