There are plenty of vampire-themed games around these days, catering for the long-standing fascination the public has with these mysterious, not-quite-human creatures. Bloodthirsty they may be, but they are also perfectly cast as romantic heroes and sexily sinister bad gals. Blood Eternal is an exciting and cleverly designed slot from Betsoft that is ready to deliver all things vampire to diehard fans and the mildly curious alike. Read our full review below.
Step inside, dearThe best games draw you in with their visuals and sounds and Betsoft's Blood Eternal excels at both. The creepy yet haunting background music is a perfect match for the dark, gothic interior of an isolated mansion where nobody visits twice. The black backdrop showcases the richly coloured images that were heavily influenced by gothic design features, and the larger-than-usual 3 x 6 screen gives you even more opportunity to enjoy the game.
Who and what to watch out forThere are plenty of themed symbols to spot during play, ranging from holy water in a pretty blue bottle and a vial of rich red blood to a jewel-studded cross and stone gargoyle. Of course, the standard playing card symbols are there sporting a stunning gothic design influence and jewels to boot. The other six icons all play a special role in the game. The male and female human figures, which only ever appear on reel 3 and 4, play a key part in a bonus game, as do the male and female vampires who pop up on reels 2 and 5. The latter mainly appear on the reels in the guise of their animal form: the bat. One is labeled x2, and it counts as two regular bats. This benefits players during regular spins when x2 bats make reaching the number needed for a good payout much easier, and those who get the maximum of 12 in one spin are rewarded with the mega bonus of 50.000 credits!
Chasing the payoutsThe most lucrative rewards come from matching six symbols during a regular spin, although the lower amounts paid for fewer matches are more likely and can quickly add up. Here there are three main tiers of prize credits. The highest payers for five or six matches are the haunted house, cross and gargoyle, with figures ranging from 2,500 to 1,500 for six and 1,000 to 600 for five. The blood and holy water pay around 700 and 300 respectively, and the playing cards, as usual, offer regular wins with small rewards of 50 to 150.
Extra helpingsThe ultimate fun comes from landing a human-vampire side-by-side appearance as this triggers a blood-soaked attack and eight free spins that splatter the red stuff onto surrounding icons, turning them into wilds. Manage a second match during this Vampire Free Spins section and the whole process is repeated. Less exciting but potentially lucrative is the double-up bonus option available after every regular play win. It may be the standard 50-50 game, but the heads/tails coin toss is a great way to chance your arm and cash in. Play this game for free on our site, or check out the hundreds of other slots we offer.
