Game of the Week – Dracula’s Gems

Movies such as Twilight have introduced us to the “Tweenpire,” a watered-down version of vampires that are angsty and more suitable for romance novels than a horror movie. Dracula’s Gems is a new video pokie game from Mr. Slotty that taps into this tweenpire vibe, but don’t let that prevent you from playing it.

Dracula’s Gems is a solid 5-Reel, 10 payline video pokie that features generous paylines and great graphics. The free games features is nothing special, but you do get a reasonable number of free spins.

Great Graphics and Sound

You can quickly tell by glancing at this game that Mr. Slotty was shooting for the Twilight crowd with this game, but they put a lot of effort in designing it. The background is an eerie backdrop of Dracula’s castle at the full moon. The background music is an eerie theme that you would associate with classic horror movies.

The symbol graphics are also high quality and very appropriate for the theme. When you spin the reels, it sounds like your moving a lid off a concrete crypt. The video graphics are not overly impressive with some slight animation of the symbols, but we’ve seen worse.

Dracula's Gems Main Game

High Paying Symbols

This game is great for all bankrolls. Not only can you bet between .01 and $2.50 per line, but you can actually choose to bet between one and ten lines. Many multi-line games nowadays force you to play multiple lines.

One thing we like about this game is that when you land at least three winning symbols, you make a profit regardless of the symbols. The lowest paying symbols will still generate a profit. The two higher paying symbols only pay out on four or five symbols.

Below are the payouts of each symbol based on three, four, or five on a payline:

  • Red and Black Rose- 13, 36, 66
  • Full Moon – 36, 66, 113
  • Raven – 66, 113, 166
  • Bats – 113, 166, 313
  • Howling Wolf – 666 or 1,313
  • Dracula – 1,313 or 1,666

The blue gem amulet is the wild for this game. It substitutes for all symbols except for the scatter. If you land five on a payline, you get 6,666x your bet.

Free Spins Game

The set of female vampire lips are the scatter for this game. If you land three or more scatters, you get 13 free spins. There’s nothing special about the free spin rounds outside of the spins.

We were pretty lucky with this game and hit the free spins feature in our first 10 spins. We ended up hitting a nice win of about 300 credits during the spins.

Dracula’s Gems a Great Game With High RTP

Dracula’s Gems is a bit different from many online pokie games at online casinos in Australia. First, when you hit a winning payline, you actually turn a profit regardless of the symbol you hit. Next, the game gives you more freedom to control how much you play each spin. For those with a smaller bankroll, this is a perfect game to play.

While the free spins game doesn’t have a ton of extra features, you do get a modest number of free spins. With many games wanting to handcuff you to six or eight free spins, 13 free spins make this bonus potentially more lucrative.

Another great thing about this game is that it has an RTP of 97%. This is much higher than many Australian online pokies, meaning you have a greater chance of walking away a winner.

While some may not like the Twilight vibe of this game, the high payouts outs and bankroll-friendly features of this game make it one worth playing. You can find this game at casinos such as PlayAmo or any casino offering Mr. Slotty games.
