Our developers bring to your attention to the mutual work of NetEnt and Universal Studio - Dracula pokie. At this time, the basis for the bloody plot is taken from the famous film of the last century about Count Dracula. The RTP (return to player percentage is 96.6%), and it has the potential of the big winning with the Bat feature. Below we will consider this pokie and its functions in more details.
Personal testers opinion about Dracula pokie
While I was playing for real money, I managed to win about €7000 via small bet for a few spins (the symbol of Dracula dropped out 2/3 reels). During testing, approximately 25-26 spins out of 100 brought the winning (any hit). The pokie is paying out 79% during the usual spins, and the rest is saved for the bonus free spins feature which is triggering following the statistic, every 161st spin (0.62%). It keeps a balance well, so you can complete the bonus requirements (rating is 6.08 from 10). Usually, this pokie clearly shows its mood from the beginning. Try to focus on the frequency of the Bat feature. The more times it is activated during the usual spins (with the positive result) - the warmer the pokie is.
Review and the recommendations from the testers team
This is an exciting pokie with good graphics (at the time of release) and gameplay, but it is too clumsy, as most of the pokies of this provider. In most cases, when Dracula gives a good combination, starting from the second reel, it puts completely different symbols on the first one; this creates quite negative feelings. Also, there are some sessions where the pokie gives a full screen of Wild symbols
- The triggering of bonus games (free spins feature) is not impressive; it is quite rare and portioned, which is extremely disappointing when it comes to the small payouts.
- In my opinion, like the pokie Invisible Man, this one was created more for giving entertaining pleasure than giving a huge win. During a successful game session, it was not possible to increase the balance by more than 200x total bets, and this happened only once in many game sessions; in most sessions, it was either not possible at all to increase, or it was of a small amount (40x - 80x of total bet).
The pokie is good for playing with bonus money. The recommended bet balance is from 150 bets, and the strategy, to try 50-80 bets and to end the session if no bonus was triggered. If a bonus is triggered, continue the game. If you catch that the pokie is in a mood for bonuses, you can expect a bonus feature after another 20-40 spins.

The Free Spins feature
Now we will stop in this section on the most interesting - the bonus features of Dracula pokie.
- Free Spins. This feature is triggered when, at the same time, you have Dracula symbol placed on the second reel, and the fourth is the same symbol of his lady. After that, you get at your disposal 10 free spins. Also, you can get two extra spins if you put a sticky image of the embracing main symbols on the 3rd reel (gives +2 spins). The highest chance of the top winning is provided by Bats feature, which triggers during each free spin.
- Bat feature. It is such a cool and original solution from the developers. From time to time this feature will launch randomly during the usual spins. Dracula turns into a flock of bats and descends from the cave to the reels of the pokie to any place. They can turn into ordinary identical images and become wild symbols. Thanks to this innovative solution, bats will be able to bring you the winning from which your blood will boil, it is a joke, but you will have the adrenalin.
Dracula pokie is slightly different from others which are released by NetEnt. As we expected, we cannot have any claims and pretension to the graphic, animation and musical accompaniment. Everything is just great, and a lot of punters are satisfied with it. Most of the significant winnings come during free spins in conjunction with Bat feature.
