Dracula’s Castle Game Characteristics
Dracula’s Castle’s partitioned 5X3 grid is set on a fancy wrought iron gate that is silhouetted against a dark teal sky. It has an appearing and disappearing banner ad on top of the grid.

Dracula’s Castle has one special symbol and eleven ordinary symbols. Special symbol: the substitute is a dark-haired, white-faced and blood-drooling “wild” Lord Dracula who is dressed in white and black, stepping on a skull, ensconced in a royal chair, and staring casually as bats flutter around him.
Ordinary symbols: an open-mouthed red-headed female vampire; a red-eyed and white-faced blonde female vampire; a medieval stone keep castle silhouetted against a full moon and a cyan lightning bolt; a white “RIP” tombstone with skull and crossbones; a vampire bat in flight silhouetted against a full moon; and chipped playing card values—old grunge parchment letters A and K; lilac letters Q and J; and turquoise letters 10 and 9.

After a winning round, players can claim the payout instantly or opt for a seven-round side game: a color-guessing side game (ticked “cards gambling only” icon), or a goblet-selecting side game (unticked “cards gambling only” icon). Side game one: players predict the color of a face down card by pressing a red/black gem-embedded goblet, prompting the card to flip to reveal its color. Wrong predictions nullify, while correct predictions double the current payout. Side game two: players predict which of the two goblets on the red-headed vampire’s hands contains blood. The clicked goblet pours its content: water nullifies, while blood doubles the current win.
Win multipliers for left-to-right walls: a three-of-a-kind wall pays X3; a four-of-a-kind wall pays X4; and five-of-a-kind wall pays X5. Dracula’s Castle’s non-progressive jackpot is X1000, which (1000X100) is $100000.00.
