Dracula video slot machine by Net Entertainment

Net EntertainmentSwedish casino software developer Net Entertainment has worked with Universal Studios for a long time. The deal between the two companies has resulted in a series of high quality video slots adapting classic horror movies to our modern day gambling needs: The Creature from the Black Lagoon, The Invisible Man, and many others. The latest title to be released in the developer’s Universal Monsters series is based one of the archetypal monsters of history, one that has spawned countless adaptations both modern and old: Dracula.

There are several video slot machines based on the idea of vampirism and vampires, waiting for play euro palace mobile casino games among others, but few have adapted the original Dracula story, the characters and names in the same way. Apparently the brand is heavily guarded by Universal. Luckily their deal with Net Entertainment has allowed the Swedish developer to work with it – the result was worth the wait.

Dracula is a five reel, three row video slot machine with 40 win lines. The game starts with an elaborate intro, showing a scared woman (a maid?) running from something really threatening on the streets of the Victorian London (most likely) but is overtaken by an unstoppable force. In the next frame we see the Count sitting on the right of the screen, dressed in a more modern way, waiting for the reels to start rolling. The character is not the classic Dracula you are used to – the face looks more like the actor playing in the latest Dracula movie (Dracula Untold). The Count will randomly disappear from his chair, turning into a cloud of bats that land on the reels, turning into a series of matching symbols. The game has lots of bats, by the way.

The Dracula slot machine combines several features known from NetEnt’s previous titles. The symbols representing the two main characters of the story – Dracula and Mina – are featured on the reels both in single and stacked form (on reels 2 and 4 only). When the two stacked symbols are both on the screen (Dracula on reel 2 and Mina on reel 4) the free spins feature of the game is triggered, rewarding the player with 10 spins. During the free spins – which present the two on a date – a symbol that represents them can land on reel 3, acting as a stacked wild and adding two free spins to the total. Also, during the free spins, Dracula will turn into a cloud of bats after every spin. The bats land on the reels, just like in the main game, turning into a series of matching symbols, maximizing the possible wins for every spin.

Dracula is the latest in a series of excellent video slot machines released by Net Entertainment. The games were available for players outside the US until now, but the company is awaiting for its New Jersey gambling license, meaning that it’s possible for US players to be able to try their luck with the game in the near future.
