Society's thirst for vampire tales is arguably as intense as a vampire’s thirst for blood, and far from diminishing. The developers at Irondog have tapped into the conventions of the Gothic genre, creating Blood Queen - an online slot game that will leave players enthralled. Read our full review below

Graphically GothicIrondog's Blood Queen is an incredibly well-designed slot, with the developers successfully creating an eerie ambiance through both its visuals and sound. The Gothic theme echoes throughout out all elements of the game, with the action taking place in a graveyard delicately illuminated by the moonlight.
Love at First a BiteBlood Queen consists of five reels and 30 paylines. Players must match three or more symbols in a row, from left to right, to create winning combinations and receive payouts. You can choose the Max Bet option to go all in and the Autoplay button to allow the reels to spin freely, enhancing the speed of the game. The lower0value icons that will award players with modest payouts come in the form of the classic playing cards, ranging from Jack to Ace. The Gothic-themed symbols offer more generous prizes and include demons, crystals and stakes. The two main icons of Van Hell, the vampire hunter and the vampire seductress, offer substantially greater payouts. Van Hell awards players 800 coins, while the Blood Queen can gift up to 1,000 coins if players are lucky enough to land five of her.
Fangs-givingThe wild comes in the form of a gargoyle. It will transform a whole reel into wilds if it appears on the top position of a reel and expands. Furthermore, players can also enjoy multiple stacked wilds on a single spin, resulting in some handsome payouts. The game also has a Free Spins feature triggered when players land three or more scatter symbols (a Van Hell and the Blood Queen framed in a heart), giving 20, 30 or 50 free spins. Prior to beginning the game, you’ll be offered the choice of two rounds to play them. Firstly, you can choose Van Hell’s holy water wilds that can move vertically and then horizontally. When they appear, they’ll spread for the four free spins prior to disappearing. The other option available is the Blood Queen free spins, where you’ll have the blood potion wilds that can expand to turn a whole reel wild. After that, the wild reel will then move one position to the left on each spin until it exits the screen.
Bloodsucking FunThe game follows the traditions of both the vampire genre and free online slot games, and it is great fun to play. Players will enjoy the spectacular graphics as well as the special features of the game. It is available to play for free here, along with hundreds of other free slot games. Blood Queen just goes to show playing with vampires doesn’t have to suck.
