Do you fear the things which go bump in the night? Do you fear the dark corner of your room, or leaving your wardrobe open after turning the lights off, in fear that something will escape from it? Some foolish people might call you a coward, but we know better here.
Because all sorts of dangerous creatures lurk in the world, and humans are their prey. Some want your soul, others simply want to destroy you. But today, we tackle a threat everyone has heard of – vampires. So make sure to bring your stake with you, or you may find your blood feeding the enemy.
Reel Blood is another Bovada platform exclusive, and as such, you will not find it available at any other casino. We are not certain exactly when the slot was released, but looking at the graphics, we would place it somewhere in early to mid-2010. A flat background image which is simply one same pattern repeating over and over, some awkward 3D human models that do not look bad, but still feel dated, and absence of any interesting animations all point to it being at least five years old by now.
That said, it does still have things we like – particularly the blood flowing down the icon which is part of the winning combination. The user interface is quite easy to navigate and use, but it does suffer from putting key elements of the layout in menus. You know you went too far when you have to go into a menu to change your total bet. There is no official information on the game’s volatility.
Reel Blood is played on a 5×3 playing field with 243 ways to win, forgoing traditional paylines. That means players cannot choose to turn some or all paylines on and off in order to adjust their total bet. There is no official information available on the title’s RTP, which immediately set off red flags for us, and because of that, we recommend being cautious if you choose to play this Bovada release. Gamblers can change their total bet directly, without the need to meddle with coins or active paylines. Simply choose a bet between $0.25 up to $125, and start spinning!
The Autoplay settings are available for players who do not want to constantly press the spin button in order to enjoy the slot. Once again, you have to go into the menu to turn it on. Select the number of auto spins you want to play, up to 100, and choose if you want it to pause on any feature activations or any cash prizes being won. No win and loss limits, sadly!
Payouts for all symbols are awarded when you connect three or more identical symbols from left to right on all adjacent positions. Scatters are exempt from this rule, and can grant their cash prize from any position. In fact, Scatters are also the most valuable symbol, followed by a bottle and a glass full of blood, then the silver-haired and dark-haired male vampires, the blonde sleeping woman, the letter A, then K, Q, and J, then 10 and 9 as the lowest paying icons. A silver, bloodstained shield is the Wild and can substitute for all symbols except for Scatters. Wilds only appear on the second, third and fourth reel.
Pros & Cons
Sink Your Teeth In
On top of rewarding a cash prize, three or more Scatters will also trigger the Blood Bar bonus. In it, gamblers pick between fifteen bottles on a bar wall. Each bottle can contain a cash prize, Win All, or Collect. Drawing a cash prize simply adds the money into the amount you have won. Win All will reward all cash prizes on that bar, and take you to the next level, where another fifteen bottles await you. Drawing Collect ends the bonus and pays out all the cash prizes you have collected.
