Netent’s latest collaboration with Universal Studios brings us Dracula, a 40 pay line pokie extravaganza filled to the brim with stacked wilds, minigames, free spins and unique features. Pokie lovers will love the gorgeous graphics, surprise animations and frequent bonus games.
In the intro, we get a glimpse of the troubles that haunt our main character, Dracula. This poor, tormented villain is forever trying to hook up with a new love of his life. The fact that he tries to drink her blood every time they meet doesn’t really help in the romantic department. So she does what any woman in the same situation would do. She runs.
The base game is played on a 5 x 4 grid, with 40 pay lines. Symbols are stacked and this includes the triggering symbol for the bonus games. Minimum bet is low at only $0,20, but heavy players can push their bets up to $200 a spin if they wish.
Dracula plays smoothly and is an extremely polished pokie, as we have come to expect from Netent. There are two bonus features, one mini-feature (the Bat Feature) and one free spins bonus (the aptly named “Free Spins Bonus”).
Bonus features Dracula
The “Bat Feature” mini bonus is triggered at random. Dracula will get into some kind of trance and transforms himself into a swarm of bats. These winged friends will land in formation on the reels and turn into a random symbol (including wilds).
The more bats you land and the higher paying the symbol, the bigger your win. Even more so if the bats land in strategically desired spots (on the first, second and third reels). The Bat Feature triggers very frequently and can really bring in some nice wins. Of course, you will get the occasional dead spin as well, but that is to be expected.
You are awarded 10 free spins where every spin is a Bat Feature spin. During the free spins, you can earn extra free spins although it is rare to earn more than a few extra spins per feature. The Free Spins bonus is a great feature: fun, exciting and it has serious potential for some great wins.
Dracula Pokie: our verdict
Netent’s Dracula is an amazing pokie: fun, very polished and with some great and innovative features. Bonus features come fast and frequent and will often award you with some very nice wins. One of Netent’s better pokies.
