Barcrest's Ooh Aah Dracula can be played for Real Money at the following sites:
Released many years ago was the classic land based fruit machine "Ooh Aah Dracula", a few years on the sequel to the game known as "Vamp It Up" also became a popular hit amongst fruit machine players featuring the fun blue and red trail concept. Now Barcrest has decided to reinstate Ooh Aah Dracula into the modern world of gambling with this visually pleasing and great playing video slot game.
The graphics and sounds on the online video slot "Ooh Aah Dracula" really are quite superb and the more you play this game, the more you notice the attention to detail and appreciate the many long hours that the designers and developers have put into making this fantastic slot. In terms of visual appeal we give this game a 10 out of 10, the same score goes with the sounds and music.
In terms of game play and payout Ooh Aah Dracula does not disappoint, we played the game for a few hours mixing up between the normal spins and trying out the Hi Roller mode, there is never a dull moment when playing this slot and most importantly there are many ways to win big.
There are two different ways to play Ooh Aah Dracula, by spinning in normal mode which has a generous long term RTP of 96% when playing using best strategy or in Hi Roller mode for the customer that has a much bigger bankroll and enjoys the thrill of a larger stake gamble. The long term RTP percentage when playing Hi Roller mode is a whopping 99%!! which is practically unheard of in terms of slot games.
When playing normal spins you have the ability to land many paytable wins on the 5 reels and 10 paylines just like in any other slot game, the highest paying symbols being 5 of a kind Dracula's Castles, 5 of a kind Dracula himself or 5 "Ooh Aah Dracula" symbols which awards a very nice prize of x5000 your line bet, there are also wild symbols to help you achieve these wins.
Now onto the more exciting element of the game which is the free spins bonus. The free spins bonus can be triggered by landing 3 or more scattered hearts on the base game. 3 scatter hearts will award 15 free spins only with one of the award symbols on the payout table automatically chosen to become wild. 4 scatter hearts will award the stake it or leave it free spins which can be played after the first set of free spins, this is where player involvement comes into play as you must choose to either collect the prize after the first 15 free spins or continue to play the stake it or leave it free spins. The stake it or leave it free spins consists of 10 free games, this time with two automatically chosen wild symbols. Now what happens if you land 5 scatter hearts? You will play the two free spins round as mentioned above assuming you haven't already collected a prize and you are now awarded just 5 free spins but with three payout symbols now wild. You may think that achieving 5 scatters is rather difficult however the heart attack bonus will help you with this, upon landing 3 or 4 hearts on the base game, the five reels will transform for one spin containing only blank invisible symbols and hearts for that extra chance to win big.
Hi Roller mode: Designed for players with very high bankrolls, this game can be played using the Hi Roller mode which has an increased long term RTP of 99%! Hi Roller mode plays exactly the same as explained above with the added benefit of a generous bonus game which is played after the free spins should they be triggered. During the Graveyard bonus one Grave is selected and a ghost is revealed to award extra cash. Hi Roller spins if you are unfamiliar can be played at £20 (activates Graveyard bonus after free spins) or £30 (activates Super Graveyard bonus after free spins). Each Hi Roller game awards 5 spins only with the chance to trigger the free spins more than once.
Something which will help your decisions along the way if you are offered more than one free spins round is the best strategy indicator. After a free spins round the best strategy indicator (in the form of a skeleton arm and hand) will reveal what is statistically the best decision long term (to collect the win or play the next round), if the hand leans to the left the best strategy is to collect. If the hand leans to the right then the best strategy is to continue. The best strategy indicated however does not guarantee the outcome in any individual game so use it wisely!
