Bloodsuckers II Slot
Bloodsuckers II is a 5-reel, fixed 25-pay line online slot by NetEnt. This slot is the long-awaited sequel to one of NetEnt's most popular games, Blood Suckers. Blood Suckers is something of a legend within the realm of online slots, as it had one of the highest RTPs (return-to-player – the percentage of cash expected as a return over an extended play period) of any slots game, ever – 98%! That's such a high RTP that many online casinos banned the original game from contributing towards bonus wagering requirements. Sad to say Bloodsuckers II does not have such a high RTP, but at 96.94% it's still respectably high.
As you may have gathered, Bloodsuckers II (as with the original game) concerns people for whom life is all about being a pain in the neck, i.e. vampires. A young vampiress named Amilia has arrived at the vampire castle in order to find the hidden treasure that her ancestors have left there. Unfortunately, Amilia's extended family were hunted down and slain many years ago. She's gone all 'Daryl from The Walking Dead' and armed herself with a crossbow, and bids to recover her booty from the demonic horders! Yikes!
In more mundane matters this slot has twenty-five pay lines and that's a fixed number. You can select your coin size (from 0.01 to 1.00) and your bet level from one to ten. Your bet per spin is your bet level multiplied by your coin size multiplied by twenty-five. When you're ready to get nibbling on some necks, then hit that spin button.
Payout & bonus rounds
The lowest-paying symbols in this game are the club and diamond (card playing suits) symbols. Landing three on a pay line in sequence from the left will win you two coins. The top prize of a staggering ten thousand coins can be won with five wild symbols.
The wild symbol also substitutes for all other symbols aside from the scatter and bonus symbols.
Three red roses make up the scatter. Land only two anywhere in the main game or free spins and you are awarded a coin payout. With three or more scatters you earn ten 'Blood Rose' free spins. Free spins can be re-triggered. During free spins ALL wins are multiplied by three.
If you land at least three bonus symbols in sequence from the left you earn yourself entry into the 'Hidden Treasure Bonus Game'. Choose from five coffins and treasure chests to uncover coin wins, a key symbol, a scatter symbol or the dreaded demon. Note if four bonuses symbols activated this feature all wins are doubled, and if five triggered it then all wins are tripled.
If you collect three scatters during the bonus game then you earn ten 'Blood Rose' free spins.
A key symbol will advance you to the next level of the bonus game and five brand new chests and coffins will appear. If you uncover a key on the final level you are awarded one thousand coins and the game ends.
You can keep collecting bonuses from this feature until the demon pops his ugly head out of a chest or coffin.
Occasionally Amilia will take a crossbow pot shot at the reels. She will turn a symbol into a scatter or bonus symbol to increase your chances of triggering a feature. All non-playing card symbols will award you a win of between ten and one hundred coins.
Complete with a creepy sound effects track, this game reminds us more of Microgaming's excellent 'Immortal Romance' than the original blood suckers game. The graphics are exceptional and there's certainly enough variety with the features here to keep even immortals entertained for a very long time. Another triumph for NetEnt – just don't play when you've eaten garlic!
