It honestly seems like October is the busiest month in the internet gambling world and that batches of online slots are released every day. There must be a lot of people out there who love being scared while spinning and now two new games have arrived to feast on, with one being a little more traditional than the other.
First is a sequel to one of NetEnt’s wildly popular Halloween-themed games, Blood Suckers II, which has participants chasing down all sorts of creatures of the night. There is definitely a “classic vampire” theme here that will harken memories of Tom Cruise in Interview with the Vampire, with puffy shirts and petticoats being the style du jour. The dark mood is intensified by evil symbols and characters who look at the screen with disdain whilst being mesmerized by 25 paylines.
The graphics in Blood Suckers II Slots are absolutely insane with demonic locks and treasure chests glistening in bonus rounds, starring a sexy vamp who is more skilled with a crossbow than Daryl from The Walking Dead. Some who know the original version will be sad to learn that NetEnt reduced the Return to Player percentage (RTP) from 98% to 96.9%, but that’s still a lot better than other machines. Payouts are helped by a 3x multiplier during free spins mode and special symbols falling throughout the action to double or triple winnings.
Next is a milder release from the bizarrely-named software company, Yggdrasil. It’s a 20 payline creation called Pumpkin Smash Slots starring a bunch of creepy looking, hollowed out jack-o’-lanterns that will leave players feeling extremely uneasy. They must have been designed to be unsettling because there’s just something about the dopey look on their swollen orange faces.
This scary endeavor has a generous RTP of 96.2% buoyed by a free spins round that can issue up to 16 games, random 2x to 7x multipliers, and awards of up to 875x risk amounts. Additionally, a cool feature allows protecting larger multipliers gathered throughout the action to pad balances. Anyone living in Canada or England can check either of these out by signing up for a new account at VideoSlots today.
