Dracula is the latest horror themed video slot that has been released by Net Entertainment. The 5 reel, 40 payline video slot is the result of a licensing deal between Net Entertainment and Universal Pictures and follows up on other slots based on Universal horror films such as Frankenstein, Creature from the Black Lagoon, and The Invisible Man.
Much like the above mentioned games (save for Frankenstein), Dracula features a cartoonish looking theme that moves away from the 1931 film on which the game is based. For those unaware of the film, Dracula was a horror movie that starred Bela Lugosi, and was well received by critics. In fact it was reported at the time that numerous viewers at showings in theatres passed out from shock. Today the film has grown into becoming a classic staple of vintage Hollywood, and Lugosi's Dracula is considered to be an iconic film role.
The game itself is an interesting take on the film franchise, and sees players spinning the reels while a 3D Dracula sits next to the reels, scaring you as he gnashes his fangs at the screen when you hit a win. The game contains stacked symbols as well as characters that you will recognise from the film. Poker symbols are also prevalent on the reels, although they are less flashy than the rest of the symbols in the game.
Features include wild symbols, stacked wilds, free spins, and a Bat Bonus that turns random symbols wild. By themselves these features wouldn't seem to be that great, but the fact that Dracula allows the features to run alongside each other does give players a chance to hit some truly impressive wins.
If you are a player who has an affinity for horror films, Dracula by Net Entertainment definitely has a charm that you're sure to appreciate. Good luck, and cover up that neck!
