Vampire Fortunes Slot
A game that will mix vampires and treasures might not sound like a terribly unique title for the slots category, but given the quality at which Vampire Fortunes has been crafted, I’d say that GreenTube / Novomatic did an excellent job with it. It’s going to have much more than just pretty graphics to show off on those reels, so definitely give this one a chance.
In a game area which has 5x3 reels, they’ve used the All Pay system, which delivers 243 ways to win for that kind of size. There will be several ways in which you can get paid, with either progressive jackpots or the game’s own fixed payouts of up to 5832x the stake being on the line. As for its major features, the list will include scatter symbols, wilds with multipliers and free spins.
Betting and Prizes
The bets are selected for the entire game area, and they will start from a minimum of $0.50, and reach a maximum value of $5. It looks like a game for players with smaller budgets in that regard.
Payout wise, we get here a slot that will deliver as much as 12x the stake for its best winning combinations, but there will also be wilds present that can double that amount. Considering the 243 ways to win that are present in Vampire Fortunes, there is actually potential for a big prize to be paid here, perhaps even one of 5832x the stake, unless the amount has been capped by the developer.
An alternative, and a decent one, could be the progressive jackpots which the slot will pay. The best one, the Grand Jackpot, is seeded at an initial value of $5,000, and it can go only up from there.
The disappointing part is the Return to Player, which has been announced at 95%. It’s below average, and with a huge number of slots doing a lot better than that, it takes away many of the reasons you could have to play this game.
Vampire Fortunes Slot Features
Two types of wilds are used, one colored in blue which is present on reels 2 and 4, while the red version gets to appear on the 3rd reel only. The advantage of the latter, is that it also applies a 2x multiplier to wins it substitutes for. The appearance of one or more wilds, will also give you a chance at triggering a jackpot bonus feature.
To gain access to the free spins feature, you need the Bonus icons appearing on three or more reels, though they have to be consecutive ones. You get 10 free spins in exchange, where only picture symbols are present. Low symbols, the Royals, get removed from the reels for this feature, so you’re guaranteed to form only high paying combinations.
Theme & Design
It’s not some unique theme that hasn’t been seen before, but the vampire story, with a focus on treasures, was well crafted in this particular case. You’re looking at a slot machine with treasure chests, jewelry, potions and goblets of blood used as the main symbols, the ones paying more. You get a couple of logos for the wilds, a scatter, plus Royals which are the least interesting icons you will see here.
Vampire Fortunes manages to look fairly interesting, even with this common theme, and it’s mostly thanks to its features and potential rewards that it manages this.
