The brand new game by
continues the story of the vampire hunting game Blood Suckers. The first part of the series was acclaimed for combining a horror theme and great gameplay, with high winning chances. Let’s open the gates to the vampire castle and begin our journey!
The game starts with the animation of the castle gates opening, and with the background drawn in detailed 3D. The improvement of graphics in comparison to the first Blood Suckers becomes apparent immediately. The background however is not the same scary catacombs-like scenario, but instead a fantasy inspired room. The 3D vampire huntress left of the reels gives the game a modern feel, as the first part of the game did using 2D only.
The symbols are less interesting than the ones of the first game, however – coloured playing card symbols, as well as fantasy inspired creatures. These do not fit with the theme that well; the garlic, the bible and cross from the first game were more directly related to the scenario – a vampire game.
The music has also shifted towards a more mystical feel, which together with the different symbols fails to deliver the same spooky ambience that Blood Suckers 1 celebrated so successfully.
This second version of Blood Suckers has adopted the 25 payline concept of the first game, but fails to have the same high return to player rate. With only 96.94 % compared to 98% in the first version, the winning chances in this game are surely not an incentive to play Blood Suckers 2.
The bet range is considerably higher than in the first game, though: anything from 25 to 250 is possible! An auto play function and a max bet button are included again for increased comfort. With 670 times your stake, the win potential is also smaller than the one in the first game.
What make Blood Suckers 2 interesting are the various bonus games:
The blood rose scatter activates 10 free spins as soon as 3 or more of these show up anywhere on the reels. And then another 10 free spins can be triggered in the same way. Additionally, all bet line and scatter wins are multiplied by 3.
3 or more bonus symbols open a chamber full of treasures. The different coffins reveal coin wins, a key, a scatter symbol or the demon. But beware; the demon ends the hidden treasure bonus game!
The key is another vital feature of this game – it opens up the next level. Once at level 5, an amazing treasure awaits: 1000 coins multiplied by the bet level.
These features together make Blood Suckers 2 entertaining; however the game misses out on the things that made Blood Suckers so awesome: the super scary theme, the vampire themed symbols and the high RTP. Even though Blood Suckers 2 is a good game, it cannot live up to the standards set by the original.
