Intro: Game Theme
If it isn’t obvious from the title, Blood Suckers II is the sequel to NetEnt’s Blood Suckers slot, an iconic vampire-themed machine which is still very popular, even when it has to compete with its updated and graphically-improved successor. Blood Suckers II continues to tell the vampire story but now focuses on a fictional character, a brave vampiress Amilia who is very skilled with the crossbow.
The game’s load screen shows Amilia in front of the castle in which the hidden treasure left behind by her ancestors, killed by vampire hunters countless years ago, is kept and well-guarded by the creatures of the night. Determined to go inside and battle the hominus nocturna to finally retrieve the fortunes of her family, the vampire warrior enters the fortress and appears on the side of the reels with her weapon, ready to shoot demons on sight and without mercy. Blood Suckers II has been available at NetEnt-powered online casinos since 2017 and it features superb 3D graphics and exhilarating animations.

How it Works
Blood Suckers II is a 5-reel, 3-row video slot with 25 win lines, fixed on every spin. This means that any stake you set will be valid for 25 lines at all time. That’s why NetEnt has made sure that you can adjust your bet according to your possibilities and ambitions. The game has up to 10 bet levels and offers coin sizes from 0.1-1. In practice, players can choose their wager in the range from £0.25 to £250 per spin. The Max Bet button immediately increases all the values to their maximum limits and the Autoplay button provides the opportunity to activate up to 1,000 consecutive spins without interruption or manual control.
What’s the situation with the paytable? The symbols go from low-value playing card suits shaped as jewels (diamonds, clubs, hearts and spades) to high-value character symbols which make a comeback, as they appear in the original Blood Sucker slot. The lady vampire with wings pays 200x the stake for 5 on a line. She is followed by Nosferatu, Lestat and Vlad Dracula, who brings a payout worth 500x the stake in ideal conditions. Land 5 Wilds and you will receive a payout of 10,000x the stake, whereas Scatters pay somewhat less for the 5-icon combination – 2,500x the bet.
To make things less scary and more exciting, NetEnt has incorporated two random special features into Blood Suckers II, a Blood Rose Free Spins round and a Hidden Treasure Bonus Game. In other words, you get four bonuses for the price of one game. The two random features are Scatter Shot and Bonus Shot. Any spin that has 2 Scatters landing can be the one to activate the Scatter Shot during which Amilia will shot her crossbow in an attempt to locate the third Scatter symbol necessary to trigger Blood Rose Free Spins. If this does not work, all character symbols will award a cash prize worth between 10 and 100x bet.
The Bonus symbol is the treasury door, and if there are only two on a spin, it may happen that a third overlay Bonus symbol appears on reels 1, 2 or 3 in the Bonus Shot feature.
Blood Rose Free Spins are triggered by three Scatters. The players get 10 freebies in the round and if additional 2 -5 Scatters appear, coin wins of 2 – 100x bet will also be awarded. All free spins played at the same bet level the round is triggered with and with a 3x win multiplier. If you manage to restart the round, you will get another 10 free spins and again and again with no limits.
Three or more Bonus symbols landing on consecutive reels will initiate the Hidden Treasure Bonus Game, a levelled picking mini-game. There are five levels, each one bringing five chests and coffins to pick from. The options you may pick include a cash win, a key symbol, a Scatter or the demon. If you start the round with 4 Bonus icons, all the cash wins are doubled, whereas if 5 Bonus symbols trigger the feature all cash wins are tripled. Reveal Scatters and you will collect them to trigger the free spins. The key symbol advances you to the next level, whereas the demon ends the round.
Blood Suckers II is a low-variance slot, but it has a firm bite – when it grabs you, it does not let go! There’s so much going on in this game and each spin is suspenseful. The RTP is comfortable and the wins can be really otherworldly, especially during the special features. It is a gorgeous-looking video slot and certainly one of NetEnt’s best creations in recent years.
