Show your bravery and join the Vampire Hunters on the slot from 1×2 Gaming. Will garlic and a wooden cross or a silver dagger your weapon of choice? Either way, wild substitutions, a pick-and-click bonus game and a free spins round can reward your bravery with up to 800 times your bet on a single spin.
Vampire Hunters is a video slot with five reels, four rows and 25 fixed pay lines. Wins are awarded for three to five matching symbols on a line from left to right only. You can face the bloodthirsty creatures on desktop or mobile from 0.25 to 100 credits per spin. The game has medium volatility and an RTP of 96%.
Opening the game will see you enter a chamber in the vampire castle, sparsely lit by candles and an open coffin with a vampiress in the background. Night has fallen, the right time for her to wake to search for the next innocent should she can quench her bloodthirst from. A sinister soundtrack adds to the spooky atmosphere.
The pay symbols start at the low end with red, black and blue gemstones, awarding 1x to 2x your bet for a single five of a kind. They are followed on the medium level by golden chalices, bibles, and wooden crosses. Hit five on a line to win 2x to 10x your stake. The premium symbols are three vampire hunters – a villager with a wooden pitchfork, a huntress with a crossbow and a hunter with a silver sword.
A male vampire is the wild symbol, substituting for all regular pay symbols. A vampiress acts as the scatter while a closed coffin is the bonus symbol.
A proper vampire-themed slot must have coffins somehow integrated into the gameplay. On this 1×2 creation, there are not one but five of them appearing in the Bonus Game. Triggered when three or more bonus symbols land anywhere on the reels, it will lead you to a room with five coffins where you can make picks to reveal coin wins and multipliers. Expect to win anything from 10x to 100x your bet.
The second feature on the Vampire Hunters slot is the Free Spins round. Three, four or five scatters anywhere on the reels in one spin will get you 10, 14 and 18 free spins respectively. During the feature, the same arrangement will add 4, 6 and 8 free spins, no limits. The wild can appear stacked on any reel while the bonus round is in progress.
While Vampire Hunters conveys the theme perfectly, it lacks a serious punch that is needed to not only overcome one of the bloodthirsty vampires but also walk away with a serious reward aka big win. The slot play well and the features seem to trigger frequently enough to avoid boredom but the average wins are medium at best. Especially the free spins round is lacking some additional modifier or multiplier to make it worth waiting for, simply adding stacked wilds won’t do much to your win potential.
