Blood Suckers Megaways Review
Red Tiger Gaming has a reputation for making somewhat strange maths model decisions in many of their games, but they don’t disappoint when they need to perform well. They have shown to be capable of boosting NetEnt classics with the Megaways mechanism and Blood Suckers Megaways is yet another example of what they’re made of. The graphics look more like the original (2013) than NetEnt’s own Blood Suckers 2 (2017), and Red Tiger Gaming has also brought the existing features to a whole new level.

Review Blood Suckers Megaways
Also impressive, when you consider what Red Tiger Gaming usually puts out there when it comes to the RTP, is the 97.66% RTP this game comes with. This is awfully close to the classic 98% you get in the 2013 game, and now you’ve got an excellent 20,521x potential to trigger as well. The base game awards 4 random modifiers, and you will need to pick from 4 modifiers before the bonus round gets relevant. Players who loved the original title will not be disappointed, and we expect this part to welcome plenty of newbies as well.
How to Play
Playing Blood Suckers Megaways is fairly easy. Pressing the yellow button with two dark cursors on the right, will start to play a single round in the Blood Suckers Megaways pokie.
- You can see the 6 reels with up to 7 rows of this release spin a few times before revealing new icons. If the spins seem slow to you, then make use of the fast-forward sign as this will speed up the game.
- The auto button on the left will lead you to the auto-play feature which comes with up to 100 auto-spins and gives users the opportunity to set various limits too.
- With the Stake icon, you can change your current bet. There are 7 betting limits, set at $0.2 to $4 per spin.
- There are two options to check the paytable and game rules. Both the pay and help signs in the lower-left part of the screen can be used to do so.
- In addition, you can also press the triple lines diagonally. Lastly, the square will make you adjust the screen size, whilst the speaker symbol will regulate the sound.
On the reels of the game, you will see garlic, crossbows, daggers, holy bibles and holy water as the low values. The high values are displayed by a female vampire, Succubus (the female demon), Nosferatu, an aristocrat and Vlad the Impaler (a 15th-century warlord). Vlad is also the most valuable symbol with 0.8, 1.2, 1.7 or 3x the total stake awarded for combos of 3, 4, 5 or 6. Those familiar with the original pokie game will enjoy that the symbols are almost the same as in the 2013 pokie. Furthermore, the Blood Suckers Megaways pokie comes with different wild symbols. You have the Animated Vampire Bite Wild as well 2 different Super Wilds. As expected, wilds substitutes for pay symbols. There is a Vampire Bride scatter symbol with +3 activating the free spins.
|Symbol||Payout for 3||Payout for 4||Payout for 5||Payout for 6|
|Vlad the Impaler||0.8||1.2||1.7||3|
|Vampire Bite Wild||Substitutes for Paying symbols (1×1 in size)|
|Super Wilds||Wild reels with multipliers between 2-7x|
|Vampire Bride Scatter||3+ activates free spins feature|
The Blood Suckers Megaways pokie comes with a whopping total of 7 bonus features. This includes chain reactions/cascades and 4 base game features which randomly award Super Wild reels with multipliers up to 7x, multipliers up to 5x, random wilds, and extra scatters. Then there is also the Free Spins feature. Here is what the features do:
Chain Reaction Feature (Avalanche/Cascade)
When a winning combo is created by landing 3+ matching symbols on successive reels beginning from reel 1), the Chain Reaction feature will help you form better combinations. In this case, winning symbols will disappear to make way for new symbols that can form new wins. This continues until no more new wins are created.
Random Base Game Features
Coffins can randomly appear on any base game spin. Make sure to open the heavy, skull-engraved stone top of the coffin as this reveals a sleeping vampire who is enveloped in red velvet cushions. If you manage to kill the vampire inside the coffin, you will activate the respective bonus feature which we’ll dive into below:
- Random Wilds feature: between 2 and 10 random wilds will land on the reels 2, 3, 4 and/or 5. These wilds substitute for all other symbols in the game.
- Bonus Scatters feature: 2, 3 or 4 Vampire Bride Scatters are added to the reels of the game which will increase your chances of activating the Free Spins feature.
- Super Wilds feature: up to 2 Super Wilds can land on reels 2, 3, 4 and/or 5. Super Wilds are wild reels and come with multipliers, somewhere between 2x and 7x.
- Wins Multiplier feature: a random multiplier of 2x, 3x or 5x is applied to all wins in the spin. This feature can only be activated on a non-winning base game spin. When this happens, the multiplier will reset for the next spin.
Free Spins Feature
The Free Spins feature is triggered by landing 3+ Vampire Bride Scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. With 5 free spins awarded, each scatter gives you one pick in the picker before the free spins begin. As a rule of thumb: 3, 4 or 5 scatters will therefore reward you with 3, 4 or 5 picks respectively which should be easy to remember. Once you’ve found your way to the picker, you’ll come across 10 closed coffins. When you pick a coffin and the vampire inside is slain, a random feature is activated for the rest of the free spins.
Buy Bonus Feature
Available to New Zealanders, there is also a Bonus Buy feature. With 4 options available in total, you can buy a coffin for a random base game feature or entry to the Free Spins feature with 3, 4 or 5 coffin picks. Conveniently, the RTP rises to 97.73% when you make use of the bonus buy feature. Here is what you can choose from:
|Feature Coffin + 1 random base game feature||10x the stake|
|3 coffin picks in the Free Spins feature||150x the stake|
|4 coffin picks in the Free Spins feature||500x the stake|
|5 coffin picks in the Free Spins feature||1,000x the stake|
The RTP Blood Suckers Megaways is set at 97.66% which is very high for an online pokie game. Most other pokies by Red Tiger Gaming offer RTP’s around 95.6% so this is very high for this provider. The good thing about it is that they have not failed to stay true to the original Blood Suckers pokie which has a 98% RTP. As for the variance of the game, it is set at very high which means you will need to analyse your bankroll before you make your first bet. Regarding the game’s win potential, the Blood Suckers Megaways pokie offers max wins of 20,521x your total stake. The biggest payouts will come in the free spins feature where there are various extras like extra wilds and even an increased multiplier.
From a graphical point of view, Blood Suckers Megaways pays tribute to the Blood Suckers pokie but with better graphics and a marvellous soundtrack, especially notable during the free spins. Graphically, it’s more Blood Suckers than its part II. As for the overall gameplay, we very much like that there are 4 randomly activated base game features awarding random wilds, extra scatters, super wild reels with multipliers and multipliers up to 5x. These features come into play in the free spins feature. The free spins feature is one of the in total 7 features waiting to be triggered in the Megaways edition.
On top of all the excitement, the RTP of Blood Suckers Megaways is set at an amazing 97.66%. This makes this the online pokie with one of the best RTP out there. The original Blood Suckers pokie came with a 98% RTP rate so it’s good to see Red Tiger Gaming has not forgotten about one of the main reasons for its worldwide popularity, including NZ online casinos. All in all, the Blood Suckers Megaways pokie even manages to outperform the original Blood Suckers. It boasts more bonus features, gives us better graphics, more immersive audio, and much higher win potential coupled with a great RTP rate. We sincerely believe that Red Tiger has delivered one of the best Megaways pokies out there and have given it the maximum score.
