Brace for an encounter with blood-sucking vampires on the slot from Amatic. The immortal creatures have a special place in the world of video slots, appearing regularly on creations from many game providers. Amatic’s take is a rather simple slot with wild substitutions and a free spins round where one regular symbol is selected to act as an additional wild symbol. The maximum win potential in one spin is 1,000 times your bet.
Vampires is a video slot with five reels, four rows and 50 fixed pay lines. Wins are awarded for three to five matching symbols on a line from left to right. You encounter with the vampires on desktop or mobile starts at 0.50 and peaks at 100 credits per spin. The RTP of this medium variance game is set at a flat 96%.
A dark colour scheme underlines the harrowing theme while typical things associated with vampires populate the reels. A female and a male vampire appear in four-symbol high stacks at all times. As usual with Amatic slots, there is little to no soundtrack.
The pay symbols start at the low end with the card royals from 10 through to A, awarding 2x your bet for a five of a kind. They are followed by white wolves, castles as well as the female and the male vampire. Pays for a five of a kind range from 3x to 20x your stake. A sparkling icon with diamonds in the form of an eye is the wild symbol, appearing stacked at all times, while a steel rose with a red blossom is the scatter.
While the maximum win of 1,000 time the bet can be hit in the base game due to the top symbol appearing stacked, it will be easier to score in the free spins. Three or more scatters will trigger seven free spins which can be retriggered indefinitely. Before the round starts, one regular symbol is randomly selected to turn into an additional wild symbol for the duration of the feature. The round ends when you run out of free spins.
The Vampires slot is one of the more elaborate creations from Amatic, who his better known for its rudimentary designs. While graphics and animations are acceptable on this slot, the soundtrack has not changed in decades. Might be not a bad thing for Amatic fans but I prefer to have a distinct soundtrack for every slot. Nevertheless, it plays quite well and can lead to good wins on a lucky day.
