Blood Suckers II

178

The original Blood Suckers slot is one of the most popular games NetEnt have ever created, and has been enjoyed by huge numbers of online gamblers throughout the world. It therefore only makes sense for them to follow it up with a sequel, and they’ve done this with the rather unoriginally named Blood Suckers II. Fans of the previous game should love the additions NetEnt have made to the slot, and should eventually find themselves playing the second version, while consigning the first incarnation to history.

But what can you expect from the newest version of this slot? Well, the first thing is this: fantastic graphics, which maintain the atmosphere of the previous title, but that also offer something a little different. Graphically, Blood Suckers II is a massive step-up from the original and has a drab looking chamber in the Vampire Castle which acts as a backdrop to the reels- overseeing things is Amilia. It has a superb animation and an eerie feel and soundtrack to it. Four vampires join the lower value heart, club, diamond and spade symbols. The good looking chap in red is the best of the four vampires and offers a 500-coin payout for landing 5-in-a-row combination. The vampire to the side of the reels is a constant presence (she’s called Amilia, and is looking for the hidden treasure lost by her ancestors), often moving as you play, while all the symbols have been created with stylishness in mind. The music isn’t too bad either, and only adds to the atmosphere of this slightly spooky online slot. If you don’t like it, you can always mute the music though.

This is a slot with five reels and three symbols per reel, meaning that it follows the standard layout for a video slot. There are 25 fixed paylines at this slot, meaning that you have to play all 25 on every spin. 25 paylines might not seem like many to some players, who are used to playing slots with hundreds of ways to win, however it should still satisfy most players, and leads to plenty of action on the reels.

The symbols at this slot feature a whole host of different vampires, as you might expect from a game of this name. The other symbols are based on the different suits found in a pack of cards, and aren’t that inspiring. Couldn’t NetEnt have come up with some more original symbols instead, just to ensure this slot is really different to the rest? The highest paying symbol is the wild symbol, while the card suits represent the symbols with the lowest payouts.

But what about the prizes on offer at this slot? Well, as previously mentioned, the highest paying symbol is the wild symbol, followed by the scatter symbol, however all the vampires also offer high prizes. The biggest prizes are found during the bonus games though, with the free spins offering a huge prize worth 1,298x your stake on every spin. You’ll be able to find out about the bonus features further down this page.

The last thing to mention in this section is the stakes. The minimum that can be bet per spin at Blood Suckers II is 25p, which is quite high when compared to some other slots. This means that this slot might not be suitable for players looking to play at the lowest stakes. The maximum bet amount is £250, and this should be more than enough to satisfy the high-rollers at online casinos. Changing the bet amount is pretty easy – just adjust the level and coin value sections to alter the amount you stake per spin. Divide your total bet amount by 25 to determine how much you’re betting per payline. Wins are then calculated by multiplying the bet per payline by the figure shown on the paytable.

Bonus Features

There are a few bonus features to mention at Blood Suckers II, as you’d expect from a new slot created by NetEnt. The first is the wild symbol, which is pretty easy to spot, and can spin in on the reels and substitute for most other symbols, thus meaning that it can create some nice winning combinations. No special features are attached to this wild symbol, however it is also the jackpot symbol, so it’s a pretty important symbol overall!

The scatter symbol is also an important one, and players will win a cash prize whenever they get two or more of this symbol anywhere on the reels. What’s more, they’ll also receive free spins if they get three or more of this symbol on the reels. This feature, called Blood Rose Free Spins, is a pretty simple one, but can lead to some huge prizes. Players will get ten free spins initially, however they can be retriggered by getting a further three or more scatters on the reels on a free spin. All wins during free spins have a 3x multiplier added to them. So essentially in landing two scatters on the reel brings Amilia into life and she then fires her crossbow and adds another scatter to the screen to trigger the Blood Rose Free Spins feature with 10 free spins. The medium level wins symbols here give between 10 and 100 coins when you get them on the reels.

You’ll also notice a Bonus symbol on the reels, and getting three or more of this symbol on consecutive reels will start the Hidden Treasure Bonus Game. The more symbols used to activate the feature, the higher the multiplier will be. So, players activating the feature with three symbols get no multiplier added to cash prizes, players spinning in four Bonus symbols receive a 2x multiplier, and players activating the feature with five symbols get a 3x multiplier. The Hidden Treasure bonus feature is randomly activated via base game extra and can add an overlay Bonus symbol to reels 1, 2 or 3, getting you a step closer to activating this impressive feature.

When the game starts, you’ll need to choose from three coffins. If you reveal a scatter symbol, it will be collected. If you manage to collect three over the course of the game, the free spins round will be activated. You could also reveal a key, which will take you to the next level of the game, where larger prizes are earned. A cash prize could also be revealed. The game ends when you reveal the Demon.

The range of features are also very impressive as both the free spins and pick’em rounds to offer decent winning potentials. Taking all of these features in one piece and you get a wholly impressive game, and with the original Blood Suckers being a widely popular game, there’s no reason to imagine that the Blood Suckers II won’t achieve an equal level of popularity.

Finally, there are a couple of random features to mention, and the first is the Scatter Shot feature. This sees an extra scatter symbol added to the reels, which could cause the free spins to be activated, plus all medium win symbols on the reels award a cash prize, each of which can be worth 100x your bet per payline. The other random feature is the Bonus Shot feature, and this sees an extra overlay bonus added to reel one, two or three.
