Blood Suckers is a classic real money online casino slot from NetEnt, one that can be found on the highest rated NetEnt casinos out there (including Bet365) and one that has won over many fans in the last few years. There is even a sequel, and those are rare on games anything short of extraordinary.
But does this slot fall into that category or is it a letdown?

Firstly, this is a classic title not a new one. NetEnt tend to produce two types of games, typically dependent on when they were created. In the old days, they created games that were simple and didn’t have the best graphics. These days they create games that have full 3D graphics and are a joy to look at and play.
Blood Suckers is in the former category, but that doesn’t mean it looks bad, it just means it doesn't look as good as some of the newer NetEnt titles out there.
There are 5 reels and 25 paylines and there is also a wild symbol, which comes in the form of a blood sucking vampire chowing-down on a blonde girl.
There is a noir, vampiric feel throughout, looking like a comic cross between Interview with a Vampire and an old-school Dracula film. You can bet as little as 0.01 coins and as much as 50 and it is available both on desktop and on mobile.
There is a free spins round on Blood Suckers that is unlocked when you land three or more of the bonus symbols. This comes with a jackpot of 7,500 coins and gives you extra chances to win by unlocking several more wilds and a 3x multiplier. It is the multiplier that really kicks this bonus round into life, but unlike many similar features that we have played, you won’t be stuck taking spin after spin without winning, so it’s much less frustrating.
There are 10 free spins in total and while it doesn’t sound like much, it is quite generous overall and the feature appears quite often as well. We probably got very lucky in unlocking this feature several times in our first 50 spins, but even when we returned at a later date it still came along quite frequently.
We love NetEnt. In our mind, you can’t be a top rated online casino without some NetEnt slots because they are the biggest and best developer out there right now, on par with BetSoft in terms of quality and with Playtech in terms of the amount of great games they produce.
Blood Suckers, being one of their earlier titles, is not quite as good as games like South Park and Reels of Chaos. It has some high points and the NetEnt style is definitely there, but it doesn’t have those big graphics, those random features and that huge bonus round that we have come to expect from NetEnt casino titles.
Worth a play indeed, but nothing to write home about. Maybe the sequel will be better.
