Our developers bring to your attention to the mutual work of NetEnt and Universal Studio - Dracula slot. 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 96.58%), and it has the potential of the big winning with the Bat feature. Below we will consider this video slot and its functions in more details.
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 slot is paying out 79% during the usual spins, and the rest is saved for the bonus free spins feature. The free spins feature is triggering by the statistic, every 161st spin (0.62%). The slot machine keeps a balance, so you can complete the bonus requirements (rating is 6.08 from 10). Usually, this machine 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 is slot machine is.
Review and the recommendations from the testers team
Quite an interesting slot from NetEnt, with not bad graphics and functionality (at the release time).
- In my opinion, like most NetEnt slots, it is too clumsy. In most cases, when Dracula gives a good combination starting with the 2nd reel, the first reel gets completely different symbols, which gives the impression of a fixed slot that is there to scam you, and you just have negative emotions about it. In fairness, it should be noted that there were game sessions when Dracula gave away a full screen of Wild symbols.
- The frequency of bonus games (free spins) does not impress at all, they are quite rare and are given in batches, which is extremely distressing if speaking of small payouts for the combinations, and thus it is quite bad in keeping the balance up.
In my opinion, the slot is similar to the Invisible Man, created rather for an aesthetic pleasure than for getting a big win. During a good gaming session, I did not manage to get a bigger win than 200 bets, and it happened just once in the many game sessions I had, while the most game sessions were quite awful, I had not winnings at all or they were too low, of about 40-80 bets.
- In my opinion, this slot is not the best for both, bonus and real money. It has a recommended x150. The recommended game strategy: 50-80 bets per slot, if there is no bonus game, do not spend too much time on it, move to another slot. If you get a bonus game, you should not leave right after it ends, regardless of the result. Given that the slot offers bonus games in waves, make another 20-40 spins, there is a high chance you will get another bonus game.
- Ps: Note that providers regularly change the slot scripts, which may lead to a different slot behaviour. The BNC team will do its best to keep you updated on the changes made! Remember that these are just some of the schemes and examples, you could find a completely different slot behaviour!

Symbols and payment
Unfortunately, to be honest with you, the pay-table in our opinion is the weakest point in the slot. If we look at the coefficients in it, then it will be complicated to count on serious success without the help of additional features. Even for a pay combination of four symbols, pay too little.
- The smallest winnings will bring icons with the image of the playing cards.
- All pictures depicting vampires except for Dracula and his lover will bring you the winning of 60 coins.
- The most valuable and desired symbols in the game are Count Dracula and his lady. Each of them can increase your winnings by 200 coins.
- The wild symbol in the game is the letter W of red colour on a white background. It will not bring you a payout by itself, but it will help to complete the pay combination at a convenient opportunity. Wild symbol appears only on 2, 3 and four reels.
- Stacked Wild. This symbol is represented in two faces. The simultaneous appearance of the stacked Count Dracula on the 2nd reel and his lady on the 3 triggers the free spins feature. If during the free spins on the 3rd reel drops out the picture of the count and the lady standing together player gets +2 additional spins.
The Free Spins feature
Now we will stop in this section on the most interesting - the bonus opportunities of Dracula.
- Free Spins. This function 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 video slot 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 machine is slightly different from other slots 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 gamblers are satisfied with it. Most of the significant winnings come during free spins in conjunction with Bat function.
