In recent years the vampire theme has increased in popularity and this could be down to television programs such as The Vampire Diaries and True Blood, alternatively though the increased interest could be driven by the hit box office Twilight Saga movies. Whatever the reason there are many successful slots such as Dracula from the developers at NetEnt and Immortal Romance by Microgaming, with many developers beginning to stake their reputation by producing replica styled slots. Nucleus Gaming has a portfolio and table games of about 80 different offerings as they continue to grow. The designers and artists are all extremely talented and specialize in the high-quality graphics and smooth animation that make most slots look almost futuristic and the smooth game play that players have come to expect. All the slots from Nucleus Gaming are created to work on most platforms including mobile smartphones, desktop PC’s and tablet computers. All their slots also appear to offer high return to player percentages.
This 6-reel slot sees symbols being arranged over three rows and players win when they land matching rows in an unbroken sequence across any of the 30 pay lines starting from left to right. The dramatic symbols are complemented with the reels that have been designed so that they look as though they are created from a dull substance such as lead, there are also candles and roses which are strewn below the reels to create a real and creepy picture. Playing card symbols feature in most slots, but players prefer for them to be styled in such a way that they enhance the slot, and Moon Bitten is no exception as the Jack through to Ace are designed in a way that truly add to the entire ambience of the slot.
The Jack and Queen each reward players with x2 up to x20 the line stake when they form a sequence, whilst the King and Ace are worth x3 up to x30. The blood vials pay out between x8 up to x120 depending on how much of a pay line they cover, whilst the horrid green liquid in the bottle awards prizes of x8 to x150 of the stake bet. The gargoyle with its menacing smile pays from 10x to 300x, the beautifully gold cross returns up to 400x and the castle covered with green-hued castle is worth up to 500x the line bet.
There are 6-reels of fun on offer and players will love collecting winnings and landing wins is made so much easier thanks to a blood soaked gothic styled wild as this rewards between 20x and 750x and can also substitute for all other symbols except the free spins character symbol. There are single and double bat symbols with the double symbols counting as two normal symbols meaning that players can have as many as 12 bats across their reels for huge prizes. There are also male and female human symbols and make and female vampires and players are rewarded with 8 free spins when they land a vampire and human next to each other. The animation is superb particularly when the two symbols become one and the vampire devours the human!
These symbols stay locked in place throughout the entire feature. When it comes to the free spins players will watch in awe as the reels become splattered with blood turning anything from 1 to 8 symbols into additional wilds, and even better the feature can be reactivated by landing more humans next to the vampires. Nucleus Gaming claims that it is possible for players to win up to 965,620 coins in a free spin if the perfect combination of symbols appears, however this is not something we have validated.
