Look & Feel
The first thing as you enter the game, you hear this eerie music that puts you in the right mood for this slot. The slot design is amazing, along with the charismatic vampire characters. The reels are transparent and set against a dark and gothic ceremonial chamber background. The setting resembles something between Van Helsing and Underworld.
Symbols that appear on the reels vary from a demon to different vampires each with their own cash prizes, to the standard card icons such as Hearts, Spades, Diamonds, and Clubs. The highest paying vampire symbol is the red vampire, which kind of looks like Vlad Tepes, and pays up to 500 coins for 5 hits of the same symbol. The remaining vampires pay up to 200 for 5 of a kind. The “Wild” symbol offers the highest win. For the jackpot of 10,000 coins, you need to hit 5 of them on an active pay line at the highest bet. The scatter icon, at top bet plays, offers the second biggest cash prize, 2,500 coins, and can be triggered by hitting 5 of them.
Symbols & Bonus Features
By substituting all other symbols except for the scatters and bonus icons, the “Wild” symbol completes your winning combination. For 400x your own stake, you have to hit the 5 “Wilds” symbols.
During the main game, there are 2 bonus features that are triggered randomly. “Scatter Shot” is the first one, adding one extra scatter to the reels which trigger the Blood Rose Free spins mode awarding you 10 free spins. In this bonus feature, up to 100 coins can be won. The second feature is the ‘Bonus Shot’, on reels 1, 2 and 3, awarding you with an overlay Bonus symbol boosting wins.
Hidden Treasure Bonus & Free Spins
The bonus round is activated when you land 3 or more bonus symbols at any point on consecutive reels. In the event 4 Bonus symbols pitch your wins will be doubled. If you should get 5, your wins will be tripled! A new screen opens up showing various coffins and your job here is to pick chests and coffins. Each one of these coffins or chests reveal a cash prize, scatter, a demon and a key.
Solely by picking them up can you progress to the next stage of the game. Should you choose the demon, the bonus round will end. However, if 3 scatters pop up the ‘Blood Rose Free Spins’ feature is triggered, you are awarded 10 free spins with multipliers of 3x. While the free spins are active, and another 3 or more scatters appear, then, you’ll receive another 10 free spins, making it 20 in total. The maximum potential win on each free spin is 1,300x your stake.
With the addition of two-flaming-hot bonus modes during the base game, it makes for a better and more entertaining successor to the previous game. Low rollers can play this slot and not feel like their bankroll is under any threat or danger. Due to the medium to high variance slots, sensible play and caution are still advised. Enjoy the hunt!
