Vampires vs Wolves Slot from Pragmatic Play
tue 3 sep 2019
Not so Scary as it Sounds
There are plenty of online slot games which feature a mythological creature or tradition, but there are far fewer that bring two such creatures together and explore what happens when they confront each other head-to-head. Vampires vs Wolves
from Pragmatic Play
is one of the few that do, and this recently released title executes the idea in great style.
Why Vampires and Wolves?
Whilst both vampires and werewolves have been written about for centuries and inspired a huge number of movies in the horror and supernatural genres, they didn’t have much of a rivalry until fairly recently. In fact, until the late 20th century, vampires and wolves were mostly viewed as being on the same side. It was only when horror novelists started portraying them as adversaries that their animosity towards each other became apparent, and when the teenage Twilight trilogy was published and later adapted for the big screen, the rivalry between vampires and wolves was sealed.
Two Games in One
The Vampires vs Wolves online slot from Pragmatic Play feels like two games in one. The title has five reels and ten pay lines
, and the action takes place on the streets of an old village. The game is set at night, but there is a full moon, which is probably why the vampires aren’t the only creatures around.
Symbols on the reels include the playing card suits of spades, hearts, clubs and diamonds, six characters (three vampires and three werewolves in their human state), a Wild and two different scatters
– one portraying the castle of the vampires and the other showing a wolf howling at the moon. All of the symbols are illustrated in the same kind of style that you would expect to see in a mature graphic novel, and there are some great animations to enjoy from time to time, so do look out for those.
As far as audio content is concerned, the game has an atmospheric soundtrack
, complete with choral and other flourishes, and that does a great job in helping to immerse you in the world of the story. The sound effects when you win a prize are a little more generic, and have more of a Vegas slot feel to them, but not in a way that will detract from your enjoyment of the game.
Choose Your Side for Free Spins
The scatter symbols are three rows high and only appear on the first and fifth reels. When you get both scatter symbols showing fully on their reels at the same time, you will trigger a Free Spins round
, and here you must choose to take Wolf Free Spins or Vampire Free Spins.
Choose Wolf Free Spins and you will receive 14 free spins
. In this mode, the human werewolves are transformed into their lupine counterparts, and will all serve as wilds, in addition to the Wild symbol itself. This allows all werewolves to connect with each other and fill the reels with their presence. The Wolf Free Spins mode is described as being of low volatility, making it a suitable choice for those who like to win modest prizes more often.
Choose Vampire Free Spins and you will receive 8 free spins
. In this mode, the appearance of a vampire symbol means that it can randomly become a wild. If that happens the new wild will stick in place for the remainder of the free spins. Again, this means that it is possible to fill the reels with winning symbols, but this mode is described as being of high volatility, making it suitable for those who prefer to win less often with a chance of winning bigger prizes.
