Dracula™ is one of the many branded slots developed by NetEnt. This time, it’s Universal™ NetEnt worked together with.
It is not the first time that the two entertainment companies partnered up. But the combination of a leading software developer in iGaming and one of the world’s largest American film studios never worked out so well as with Dracula™.
That doesn’t mean they didn’t do a marvellous job creating Creature from the Black Lagoon™ and The Invisible Man™. They did for sure! However, the two entertainment companies definitely brought the development of slots to a whole new level in the Dracula™ slot.

While Dracula’s history might go even further back in time, it was John William Polidori who wrote a short work of prose fiction known as The Vampyre.
As far as I can find, it was Polidori’s story that introduced vampirism. It was during a summer spent with Frankenstein creator Mary Shelley in 1816.
The character Dracula was introduced by Irish author Bram Stoker with the publishing of the Gothic horror novel Dracula in 1897. It tells the story about world’s most famous bloodsucker and his attempt to move from Transylvania to England looking for new blood while spreading “the undead curse”.
But despite the fact that Bram Stoker’s Dracula is often seen as the one and only Dracula, it does seem Dracula has been partly inspired by Sheridan Le Fanu’s “Carmilla” from 1871. And by Varney the Vampire. The latter is a lengthy penny dreadful serial from the mid-Victorian period by James Malcolm Rymer.
The moment you open the Dracula™ slot, Dracula broods menacingly next to the reels, waiting for some action. Never before did I feel intimidated by a NetEnt character.
NetEnt’s Dracula shows an appearance as never before and that makes the Dracula™ slot interesting. I have seen friendlier looking vampires.
At the same time, I’m also very impressed. It’s because of the way this vampire is created by NetEnt’s most talented developers. They certainly have eye for detail.
If you take away the 5 reels, you would think you watch a Disney™ film instead of playing an online slot. That’s how detailed NetEnt’s Dracula is.
Watching him turning into a cluster of bats is just one big spectacle. So is the Bat feature, a perfect combination of 3D animations and an innovative slot feature.
Seven coin values and 10 bet levels give you enough variety when it comes to the betting options. No matter if you prefer the careful way, or you’re one of the so-called high rollers.
Go careful with a minimum bet of 0.20. It’s a high enough bet to come to great wins. But if you lose, you won’t lose big! If you can afford to lose a few pennies, you can choose to play with bets of up to 200.00.
Of course, there are numerous options in between the minimum and maximum bet. This makes the Dracula™ slot perfect for all types of players.
Dracula™ slot features
The way NetEnt added dramatic 3D animations to the reels, including a darkly brooding Dracula at the side of the reels, is simply amazing. The same goes for the spine-chilling Dracula™ slot features.
First, there is the Bat feature, an incredible innovative “hair-raising” slot feature. It definitely adds to the excitement of the game. This incredible slot feature is supported by Free Spins, Stacked symbols, Stacked Wilds, and regular Wild symbols.
When a NetEnt releases a new video slot, the chance a Wild feature is involved is rather big. The same goes for the Dracula™ slot.
Actually, there are two Wilds available in this branded slot. Both, the regular Wild and Stacked Wild, substitute for the highest possible winning combination on a bet line.
During Free Spins, a Wild can becomes Stacked. This means it takes over the entire reel. Since a Stacked Wild will appear on reel 3 only, the entire middle reel becomes Wild.
The Bat feature activates randomly. Once it does, Dracula transforms himself into a cluster of bats. The spectacular transformation involves amazing 3D animations. Bats fly all around, landing anywhere on the spinning reels. They form a cluster, turning all selected symbols into the same random symbol, including the Wild symbol.
And even though you can’t win Free Spins during the Bat feature, it does make a comeback with every single spin during Free Spins.
The moment you activate Free Spins, you are about to see Dracula’s gentle side. It’s a side you would not expect to see after enjoying the main game. I guess that’s what the Dracula™ slot is all about, a surprisingly innovative design and exciting slot features.
Love is finding its way in this NetEnt slot. You see the stacked Dracula appearing on reel 2, then hoping for his true love to appear on reel 4.
They both look rather sad. But when they appear at the same time on reels 2 and 4, they seem to bring warmth into each other’s hearts.
The story continues and somewhere across the mountains, a lady waits patiently. Meanwhile, Dracula makes sure he looks as handsome as possible. Dating a vampire doesn’t seem easy and the proof can be found during the 10 Free Spins activated. As a pioneer in developing online casino games, NetEnt keeps on delivering proof too, the proof the company is a genius when it comes to the slot features.
During Free Spins Bats swoop dramatically onto the reels on every single spin, with incredible 3D animations as a result. Although the lady has to miss her ‘prince’ for a little while, this specific feature will bring you loads of excitement.
The moment Dracula turns into a swarm of bats, you can only guess how many bats will fly onto the reels and transform symbols. There’s a chance all 20 bats will swoop onto the reels changing all symbols available into the same symbol creating an explosion of winnings. The Bat feature will be activated every single spin while two additional Free Spins will be added when the Stacked Wild symbol appears on reel 3.
The Free Spins feature ends with what starts as a romantic dance…
