As usual, the Playson development team deserve a pat on the back for creating another stunning looking slot. Set in a creepy looking room in a Transylvanian castle, the reels feature cartoon versions of Dracula's family - even the lower value playing card symbols have been given a ghoulish makeover. Mr and Mrs Dracula are the top paying standard symbols offering payouts of 450 times your line bet for a 5 symbol combination.
Dracula's twin sons feature on the wild symbol - it only appears on reel 5 but when it lands it will transform 2 whole reels into stacked wilds.
The Dracula's Family Logo is the scatter - land 3 of these anywhere on the reels to receive a payout of 5 times your total stake. You'll also trigger the Free Spins feature where there are 4 free spin rounds.
First up is the Mad Multiplier feature where you'll receive 15 free spins with all wins boosted by a fixed 5x multiplier – look out for 3 scatters which will give you an additional 15 free spins (taking your total to 30).
After you've triggered the Mad Multiplier feature 3 times, you'll unlock the Eternal Love feature which once again offers 15 free spins. During this feature, the Mom and Daddy symbol are combined offering boosted payouts of 100, 700 or 1,750 times your line bet if you land 3, 4 or 5 of them on a payline. You can also earn an extra 15 free spins for 3 scatters.
The Wild Whistle-Heads feature becomes unlocked after you've played the Eternal Love feature 3 times. Once again, 15 free spins are on offer with a further 15 earned when you get 3 scatters. When you get a wild on the 5th reel, it will transform all symbols of 3 reels into wilds giving you 3 fully wild reels!
Finally, there is the Delirious Reels feature which becomes available after activating the Wild Whistle-Heads 3 times - it too offers 15 free spins with an additional 15 free spins for 3 scatters on a spin. After every winning spin, the panel will shift 1 reel to the right as well as boosting a multiplier. This starts at 1x and goes up to 2x, 4x and finally 7x!
Dracula's Family is a volatile slot so you'll need plenty of patience and a decent bankroll to play it to its full potential - superbly designed and featuring a creepy, harpsichord heavy soundtrack, Dracula's Family is a joy to play. It's not just an entertainer too. Get lucky with the free spins feature and this Transylvanian trip can certainly deliver.
It’s definitely one of my favourite Playson titles due to the range of features within the free spins modes – I have had my biggest wins from the Wild Whistle-Heads feature with 3 wild reels giving me huge wins of over 1,000 times my stake in the 15 free spins. If you like the theme, Immortal Romance by Microgaming is highly recommended as to is Full Moon Fortunes by Ash Gaming (and both high variance).
