If you’re in the market for a very special classic, then it doesn’t get any better than Dr. Acula, a Rival Gaming slot machine which has a vampire theme and whose title plays on the Dracula name, turning him into a creepy doctor that’s going to take some of your blood.
Dr. Acula features 3x3 reels, and on them it offers 5 paylines. Each of those lines is capable of paying up to $5,000, so the highest potential for a single round is going to be $25,000. About the only feature that you should expect from this game is a simple wild, but even without too many extras, I think that its theme and graphics manage to make it an excellent choice, particularly if Halloween is nearby.
Betting and Prizes
The bets that you get to place in Dr. Acula are designed to cover up to 5 lines, with 1 to 3 coins in each case. On top of that, you also get the option of the coin’s denomination, which varies from $0.01 to $5. That way, you may spend up to $15 per line, and at most $75 per spin. The reels will start spinning even in exchange for a very small bet, of just $0.03.
As with many other slots of classic design, Dr. Acula will offer payouts which are a little bit better in the case of the jackpot, if you’re using the maximum number of coins. A single coin will pay 250 coins back at most per line, while two coins pay 500 coins, and three coins can pay 1,000 coins. Those extra 250 coins are offered only for the top jackpot, all other wins pay the same amount per wagered coin. Depending on the coin value that you used, a reward of up to $5,000 could be yours for each combo formed, and up to $25,000 total for all lines.
Dr. Acula Slot Features
Don’t let the pretty graphics fool you, Dr. Acula is a true classic slot machine if you look at its gameplay and the features which are offered. The only one available is a simple wild, there is nothing else.
As for the wild, it’s the role that Dr. Acula gets. We see this bald creepy man, dressed as a doctor and holding a syringe filled with blood. This is your wild symbol, and at the same time it’s also the one that delivers the jackpot when forming a combo. Three Dr. Acula symbols on a line will offer the jackpot, while with one or two you can form combinations based on the other symbols found next to them.
Blood related icons can mix together and get you paid, just as the different 7s can also do. That’s about it for the feature list though.
Theme & Design
It’s clearly a Dracula themed slot machine, but with a twist. Dracula seems to be posing as a doctor here, and his name is Dr. Acula. He has a vampire nurse to assist him, three different 7s colored in orange, purple and green, along with images of a syringe, a blood pouch and vials, all three being filled with the red liquid. I loved the design in Dr. Acula, it really helps make it an attractive choice for Halloween, though I’d play it the rest of the year as well. There aren’t that many good looking 3-reel slots out there, but this is definitely one of them.
Dr. Acula has only 3 reels, but it’s based on Dracula’s story, turned into a doctor here. It’s a fun game thanks to its graphics, but expect simple action otherwise.
