Special Features

The first feature to highlight is the all-important Wild symbol. This symbol is represented by an image of the house sigil of Amilia and it substitutes for all other symbols on screen except the Scatter and Bonus symbols to help form winning combinations on the reels. It is the highest paying symbol in the game as if you land 5 of these symbols on an active payline then you’ll bag yourself a whopping 400X your original stake!

The Scatter symbol is illustrated by a bunch of red roses with the word ‘Scatter’ below them. Land 3 or more of these symbols on the reels and you will activate the Blood Rose Free Spins feature. Here you will be given 10 Free Spins that are subject to a wonderful 3X multiplier. If you land 3 or more Scatter symbols while on a Free Spin then you will receive 10 more Free Spins. Free Spins are highly lucrative as it is possible to win up to 1,298X your wager on each Free Spin!

Blood Suckers II also has 2 randomly triggered features which occur in the main game. When the Bonus Shot feature is triggered, an extra overlay Bonus symbol will appear on reel 1, 2, or 3. If the Scatter Shot feature is activated then an additional Scatter Symbol is awarded to help trigger the Blood Rose Free Spins game and all medium win symbols on the reels award coin wins of 10 to 100 times the bet level.

The final feature to discuss is the Hidden Treasure Bonus Game. To trigger this feature you need to land 3 or more Bonus symbols anywhere on consecutive reels starting from reel 1. The Bonus symbol is denoted by a picture of a door opening with a bright blue light inside of it. If you land 4 Bonus symbols then all coin wins are doubled in the bonus game but if you trigger the feature with 5 Bonus symbols then all coins wins are nicely tripled! In this exciting mini-game, you need to pick coffins to reveal coin prizes. If the Scatter symbol is revealed then it is collected and if you gather 3 of these symbols then you will trigger the Blood Rose Free Spins feature. If the Key symbol is revealed then you will advance to the next level and if it is revealed on the last level then you will be awarded the Great Treasure Win of 1,000 coins multiplied by the bet level! Try to avoid picking the Demon symbol as if you reveal this symbol then the bonus game will end.

Theme and Graphics

The game is visually stunning to look at as it is set deep inside an ancient crypt where no doubt some of Amilia’s ancestors live. Speaking of the vampiress Amilia, she stands next to the reels pointing her crossbow at you from time to time and takes part in the action whenever a feature is activated or a win occurs. The symbols are nicely detailed and consist of a bunch of menacing vampires and some Heart, Diamond, Club, Spade icons. The animations are fantastic as Amilia closely watches the actions on the reels and symbols burst into life and disappear in a cloud of red mist whenever they contribute to a win.

The music is dark, moody, and atmospheric. It matches the Vampire theme of the game perfectly.

Win lines, Payouts and Jackpots

The game has 25 paylines, an excellent RTP of 96.94%, and a healthy jackpot of 10,000 coins.

Below is a summary taken from the PayOut Table from the game. The amount won for each combination depends on the value of the bet when you spin the reels.

Our Verdict on Blood Suckers II

This game is produced by NetEnt and it is a fantastic sequel to a cult classic. It is really simple to play, contains a nice range of amazing bonus features, and a very enticing jackpot of 10,000 coins! The Blood Rose Free Spins is the most rewarding feature in this game since you can win an incredible 1,298X your wager on each Free Spin. I found this game to be of high variance so you will need to be a bit patient before you land a big enough win on the reels. In closing, I am happy to say that for once the sequel is actually better than the original which is no mean feat when you consider how good the first game really was.
