Dracula is a game inspired by the famous novel written by Bram Stoker in 1897. NetEnt developed the game and launched it in April 2015. Like most NetEnt games, Dracula quickly became a hit amongst players just a few days after its release.
Dracula is an HTML 5 game, which means you can play it on both mobile and desktop. The game has 40 pay lines, 10 bet levels, 5 reels and 4 rows. The minimum bet is £0.20, and the maximum bet is £200 per spin. The highest amount you can win is 80,000 coins.
When you first launch Dracula, you will be transported to medieval Transylvania. Because of the name one could think it would be a terrifying game to play. But it’s quite the opposite, since the storyline is the romance between the Count and his beloved Mina.
The game symbols are Dracula, Mina, three different villagers, and the standard symbols of A, K, Q and J. The Wild symbol is a red W on a grey background. The Scatter is an interesting one, as it is a combination of 2 symbols – Mina and Dracula.
There are two main features in this game.
The first feature is the Bat one, and it is possibly the main reason behind Dracula’s success. The Bat feature can be activated both in the base game and in the free spins mode. Randomly, Dracula will turn himself into bats that will land on the reel and create a winning cluster of symbols. This feature is triggered very often and can substitute for any symbols,and it can also lead to some particularly large prizes.
The free spins feature is activated when a stacked Dracula lands on the second reel and a stacked Mina lands on the fourth reel. When this happens, you will receive 10 free spins. It is possible to earn more free spins by hitting the same combination or by hitting a Super Stack Wild of Mina and Dracula in the free spins round.
A good strategy when playing Dracula is to increase your bets gradually. Some players have noticed that the free spins round is triggered after around 180 spins and a big win happens after 230 spins. Dracula is a medium to high volatility game and suits both male and female players.
Some players have noticed a lag in the base game when the Bat feature is activated while playing on Chrome on a desktop. For this reason, it is best to use Firefox or to reduce the quality of the graphics and remove the game sounds if Chrome is your preferred browser. Doing so will drastically improve the game performance and will still make it very enjoyable to play.
