Blood Suckers (NetEnt)
Blood Suckers is one of the most popular NetEnt slots and a star of any NetEnt casino. This vampire-themed slot was released in 2009 that has been a firm player favorite ever since. It’s one of the slots with the best payout, and is a good choice for all casual players, particularly those who like vampires.
There are eight symbols in the game, all with artwork, so there’s no card symbols here. From worst- to best-paying they are: Garlic, Crossbow, Bible, Holy Water, Female Vampire, and three Male Vampires. The game has a paying Wild that is actually the best-paying symbol in the game, and two Scatters, one for the free spins game and one for the bonus game. All the symbols are nicely designed in a casual cartoonish style, and the animations are adequate as well.
The bonus game gets triggered when you land three Bonus Scatter symbols, but they aren’t true Scatters, they must be part of a winning payline to count. That means you’ll be disappointed many times when you see three Bonus symbols on your reels and the bonus game doesn’t get triggered. When it finally does, you’ll trigger the pick-a-prize game in shape of opening vampire coffins to kill them with a wooden stake. You’ll get to open coffins until you pick the empty one which ends the game.
The true Scatter, which triggers free spins, is very rarely seen on your reels. When you land at least three you’ll trigger the free spins game with 10, 20 or 30 free spins for 3, 4 or 5 Scatters respectively. All wins are tripled during the free spins game, which may sound exciting but it actually is not, as the game doesn’t pay often so the free spins feature is a disappointment. It doesn’t produce big wins, unless you’re lucky.
Despite the poor free spins game, Blood Suckers actually has theoretical return to player (RTP) of whopping 98.00%, placing it among the highest-paying slots which casinos don’t allow you to bet your bonus on. That’s how good Blood Suckers is. This is the best thing about this game that constantly delivers small and medium wins, and is one of the reasons for its popularity, particularly with the casual audience which feels this game doesn’t rob them of their money.
Strategy and Tips
Blood Suckers is meant to be played casually, and it’s unlikely you’ll either win or lose a large amount of money as the game doesn’t really deliver big wins that often, and the high RTP means you won’t be hemorraging money either. This means you can handle a bigger bet. And, if you happen to win big, that’s your cue to stop playing, as big wins aren’t frequent so when you do get one it’s time to collect and walk away. If you can. Blood Suckers is one of those slots which just ask for another spin!
