“The Vampires” is named after the featured beings that, mythologically, are the living dead who nourish themselves with the blood of the living people. Two symbols (the “scatter” blood-sucking vampire and the “wild” vampire bat) require two, three, four, or five winning combinations. Eight symbols (lone male vampire, three female vampires, temple fabric banner, revolver, Gothic Bible, and “holy water” jar) require three, four, or five winning combinations.
The Vampires Game Characteristics
The Vampires has a partitioned gray 5X3 grid that is embedded on a Gothic window whose tracery has carvings of skulls and hooded ritualists. The 25 adjustable paylines are numbered on either side of the grid; there are eleven symbols, seven coin denominations, six bets per line, 1050 bet sizes, free spins, a side game, a multiplier, a bonus game, and the regular payouts range from $0.02 to $75000.00.
The Vampires has three special symbols and eight ordinary symbols. Special symbols: a golden “bonus” chalice of blood below drawn red drapes; a substituting gray “wild” vampire bat on a round Gothic frame silhouetted against a full moon; and a free games-offering “scatter” vampire sucking blood straight from a woman’s neck.
Ordinary symbols: a Nicolas Cage-like male vampire in a Gothic frame; a gray-haired female vampire dressed in red; a red-haired female vampire dressed in black; a blonde female vampire dressed in black; a temple fabric banner secured attached to a hammer and a stake; a gray revolver on a red steel target plate; a Gothic Bible with a cross necklace; and a “holy water” jar.
The Vampires coin denominations: $0.01, $0.02, $0.05, $0.1, $0.2, $0.5, and $1. The Vampires bets per line: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 10. Minimum bet: $0.01. Maximum bet: $250.00.
Betting $250.00 attracts these The Vampires payouts. Two, three, four, and five: blood-sucking vampires pay $500.00, $1000.00, $6250.00, and $25000.00; and the “wild” vampire bat pays $50.00, $2000.00, $20000.00, and $75000.00.
Three, four, and five: lone male vampires pay $500.00, $1000.00, and $5000.00; gray-haired female vampires, or red-haired female vampires pay $150.00, $750.00, and $2500.00; blonde female vampires pay $100.00, $500.00, and $1250.00; temple fabric banners pay $50.00, $500.00, and $1000.00; revolvers pay $50.00, $250.00, and $1000.00; and Gothic Bibles, or holy water jars pay $20.00, $150.00, and $750.00.
More than three “scatter” blood-sucking vampires offer ten free spins, a mode whose winnings are subject to X3 win multipliers. Three, four, and five “bonus” chalices offer three, four, and five necropolis bonus games. Set in an extensive elaborately designed graveyard, the necropolis bonus games prompt players to instigate vampires from their graves; players tap and pour blood on tombstones, luring prize-giving things such as stiff decomposed hands. Winnings unlock the “TAKE WIN” or “TAKE RISK” side game. Pressing “TAKE RISK” redirects to a card game with four face down playing cards and one face up card; players guess which among the face down cards may be superior to the face up, wherein wrong predictions nullify the current win while correct predictions double the current win. The Vampires’ non-progressive jackpot is $75000.00.
The Vampires does not support mobile users. However, its good software features include a self-adjusting paytable, session statistics, and 10-999 customizable autospins. There is spooky ambient music and tense sound effects. The ghostly animated 3D graphics include vampires baring their teeth, glowing eyes, splattering blood, fluttering bats, spinning skulls, billowing mist, and reanimated corpses.
