On a dark misty night in an unknown city, vampires and werewolves square up to see which one is more loved by players. Vampires vs Wolves is an online slot game by Pragmatic Play that embraces minimalism - aiming for the 'less is more' spirit.
Betting Options and Bonus Features
The base game for Vampires vs Wolves is as straightforward as it gets. Pragmatic Play really dials it back with this one, evident by the traditional 5 reels, 3 rows, and only 10 paylines. Along with a 3.5/5 volatility, you get a slot game very suitable for beginners, although the max win isn't the most ideal: x1000.
The human symbols in this game look a little too similar, but the top symbol is easy to spot with his distinct white hair, which will reward you 80 times the stakes when collected all 5. However, the highest prize one could hope for in the base game is to land 5 wilds, granting a solid 100x the stakes.
There are 2 types of scatters in the slot: the Wolf scatter only appears on the first reel, and the Vampire scatter is strictly found on the last. Players have to land both scatters, each one completely covering the reels (the scatters are 3 times the size of normal symbols) to trigger the free spins feature.
The bonus round presents a dilemma between the werewolves and the vampires, which is basically choosing between high and low risk:
- Wolf Free Spins = less volatile: get 14 free spins and all 3 humans in blue frame symbols turn into werewolves, which means they are now the same symbol. Not only that, their value increases to that of wild symbols. Bonus spins cannot be re-triggered.
- Vampire Free Spins = more volatile: a major drawback is that you only get 8 free spins instead of 14. However, whenever any of the 3 humans in red frame land on the reel, they become vampire symbols and stay locked in as sticky wilds for the remaining period. Bonus spins cannot be re-triggered.
Vampires vs Wolves is a simple, chill slot best played at midnight! This game offers such a fun free spins round (I always play vampires, sorry wolves) and they happen quite often, too. But that's not to say the slot is without its flaws.
People talk about the plain gameplay and boring graphics but it's really the max win that's holding Vampire vs Wolves back: 1000x isn't impressive at all in this current casino games market. What's more, nothing is as frustrating as landing both scatters and they don't cover the whole reels so they just end up consuming useless spots.
