Update 23/04/2015: Head over to Vera&John mobile casino now to start playing this Dracula Touch slot for yourself »
We've got the video and, as we usually do, we break down every last tiny little bit of information we got about the brand new NetEnt Dracula Slot, coming out on April 23rd.
And as usual, we make wild suppositions about the new mobile slot game, what to expect and whether it’s going to be any good.
To be honest, this Dracula slot has a good amount of competition.
Can Dracula compete against these behemoth? Or will it just pass by in the monthly release of games, doomed to be ignored, much like the poor Steam Tower slot machine?
Seen it? Watched it? Understood it?
Of course you did. Who, by now, couldn’t recount the tale of that famous vampire count who falls in love with the virginal English Mina.
What you might not know is that this is done in partnership with Universal Studios. The same studios who teamed up with NetEnt to give you the likes of The Invisible Man and Creature from the Black Lagoon.

And whilst at least those two releases had something of a feel for the original movies, this ‘re-invention’ of Dracula is as far removed from the original 1931 Dracula Universal film as we are from apes.
Because whilst the original was all “I vill sohk yur blaohd!! Mwahahahaha!”, NetEnt’s Dracula is brooding, tall, dark, and looks as dangerous as any apex predator should.
Though handsome he most certainly is not.
Here’s where we write about the features and what we can deduce from the video.
Don’t worry, our wildly bloodthirsty judgement is coming in a second.
So what does all this amount to?
We don’t want to be the one to burst anyone’s excitement bubble but… actually, we do want to be that person. It’s more fun.
Basically, Dracula looks like, more or less, a fancy-ass version of the new Spinata Grande slot game.
Which, in NetEnt’s pros, we rated very highly. The full 5 stars in fact.
10 free spins on Jack & the Beanstalk + 100% up to £$€500 in cash at Vera&John.
And no, it’s not just because the Dracula slot is the only other NetEnt game to have 40 paylines and 5×4 reels.
Though that was our first clue, admittedly.
In Spinata you get symbols that stretch across 2×2 or 3×3 square space. It makes larger wins across all those paylines a little more exciting.
So tell us; what’s the real difference between that and simply… having some bats fly into the screen to add stacked symbols in slightly more imaginative patterns?
Patterns which, we’d argue, are no different to some of the big wins we saw ourselves when playing Spinata.
It’s made all the more obvious when you see the Dracula mobile slot video.
It removes the cool bat graphics, and simply makes the ‘stacked’ symbols roll onto the screen, as you would on any other spin, in any other slot.
We never saw the kind of wins in Spinata as we did in that video of Dracula, that’s for sure.
Equally, this Vampire slot doesn’t have the mini-slot-instant win machine, instead relying on that dramatic romance of the expanded wilds of the count and Mina reaching for each other, to trigger the free spins.
And the way they’ve made it so the stacked symbols can fall anywhere on the board does make it a dash more appealing – at least on the online slot if not the mobile and tablet version.

Alright, let’s get back in to that excitement bubble and say that, if at worse, Dracula ends up being just a darker, creepier version of the light and festive Spinata Grande… that’s ok in our books.
NetEntertainment slots rarely copy each other, and if they must do it, might as well copy a brand new formula that’s exciting.
And damn if this Dracula Touch slot isn’t wonderfully ghoulish. Enough to make you jump that first time he hisses at you from the side of the screen.
Exactly what we’d want from one of mythologies scariest monsters.
If you want to try your hand at some Mexican piñata bashing, in wait and preparation for the vampire coming on April 23rd 2015, then we’d thoroughly recommend the great and wonderful Guts casino.
They give you 15 free spin on Twin Spin just for registering as you’re a LuckyMobileSlots.com reader. You’ll have to login and open up the game to get it.
Then, once you are ready, you’ll get three deposit bonuses equally 300 in cash, and 100 free spins on top. All free spins, by the by, come with no wagering requirements at all.
