It took us a moment to realize why the title of this new slot game doesn’t bode well for Dr Acula’s patients. Yep – check out that name again. Maybe say it out loud. Does it sound familiar? Suffice to say this doc doesn’t sound like one you’d be happy to see!
Rival Gaming has come up with the title and the idea, which does indeed take you into the depths of what looks like a dungeon to play the game. If, that is, you are brave enough to venture there…
The game brings us three reels, but each of these can show three icons. That delivers enough room to accommodate five paylines.
Each line can take up to three coins. The prizes for each are shown in the paytable, which you will find to the left of the reels. There are several different coin values to use as well.
The most special one of all is Dr Acula himself. Not only does he play the role of the wild, he also acts as the jackpot symbol. This must appear three times on a paid line to unlock the jackpot. The amount you would win depends on the number of coins played. One, two, or three would deliver prizes worth 250, 500, or 1,000 coins. These amounts are lower than you might see in other games, but would still be nice to win, don’t you think?
No – since this is a three-reel slot, there isn’t much room for bonuses here. However, Dr Acula does offer you plenty of horror-filled icons to see. These include his alarming nurse (not someone we’d ordinarily want to see), some bags of blood, and some blood-filled test tubes. Yes, things can get quite alarming here, but if you line up enough matching symbols you may not mind.
This game is set to perk up this Halloween, thanks to the quirky take on the theme. We’ve all seen vampires before – in slot games, at least – but now we have the chance to enjoy Dr Acula too. Will he give us a warm welcome? Will he pop up as a wild in more ways than one? Try it today and see.
