If you’re looking to have some fun as well, not just try out for a big jackpot, Ooh Aah Dracula might just be a slot that’s worth looking into. Released by Barcrest, the game is going to turn the dangerous Dracula into a cool character, by using cartoon-style graphics, but it has a Hi Roller mode as well, for those that are interested in a big payday.
The game area is of the usual size, 5×3 reels, but the number of lines is fixed at 10, so it’s not making use of that space to its fullest. You have the Hi Roller mode to keep you entertained, along with a wild symbol, a scatter and three types of free spins which get extra features. There are some exciting wins to be had in Ooh Aah Dracula, a game whose best combinations could pay $250,000.
Look at the bottom row of options, in the left corner, to find the only bet option that you have control over. It’s called Stake/Line and it lets you pick the line bet. Whatever amount you choose there, it gets multiplied by 10, so that it can activate all the lines of the slot. The range of your options will be $0.01 to $50, which allows for the total bet to be $0.10 to $500.
Ooh Aah Dracula Jackpot
Like all slot machines from Barcrest that I’ve seen, this one is also capped at a maximum jackpot of $250,000 from a single spin. It’s a shame, especially since a single winning combination can pay that much if you’re using the maximum bet. The Ooh Aah Dracula logo will do that, offering 5,000 coins when it occupies all five positions of an active line.
Besides other things that I found enjoyable about Ooh Aah Dracula, like its graphics, the RTP is also quite high for a Barcrest slot. Using the regular game mode, you can reach 96% if you use the best possible strategy at all times. With the Hi Roller game used, the RTP could get to 99%, which is the most impressive part about this slot machine.
While some of the features involved in Ooh Aah Dracula are found in other slots as well, there are some unique aspects inside as well, and they make the game worth playing.
You will have these at your disposal, to use them in the formation of all types of regular combinations. They don’t give you rewards directly, so they’re usable only as substitutes. They also don’t do anything in regards to the scatters.
Hi Roller Games
These are groups of 5 spins that you pay extra for, in exchange for additional advantages in the game. The bet values are fixed at $20 or $30. The cheaper one gets you the Graveyard Bonus when the free spins are triggered, while the $30 option activates the Super Graveyard Bonus in the same situation.
Three types of free spins can be triggered, and it all depends on the number of scatter symbols you have in view. Either that, or it can also depend on the Hi Roller spins that you’ve activated.
With 3 scatter symbols, you get the regular 15 free spins. One symbol is turned into a wild, at the start of the free spins.
4 scatter symbols give you a version of the free spins called Stake It Or Leave It. You get one or two rounds of free spins, the first one with 15 free spins which get one extra wild, the second with 10 spins where you have two extra wild symbols. At the end of the first round of 15 free spins, you can collect the winnings and end the feature, or you can reject them and trigger the second round, in which case you get the payout from those 10 rounds. You don’t get the winnings from both, unfortunately.
With 5 scatters, the reward will be a Super Stake It Or Leave It version of the free spins. In this case, you get up to three rounds of free games. It works the same way, only with three rounds of free spins, which offer 15, 10 or 5 spins and 1 to 3 extra wilds. As before, you get the win from only one round, not from all three.
To help you navigate these choices that you have to make, a Best Strategy Indicator is present and it tells you which option gives you the best winnings, statistically. It’s while using this best strategy that you can reach an RTP of up to 99%, during Hi Roller spins.
Ooh Aah Dracula is obviously a vampire themed game, and many of the symbols you will see inside will take that into account. You’re getting images of Dracula, of his dark castle, a female victim with big cleavage, a werewolf, but also various Royals with a darker design that is somewhat appropriate. Several logos and the Heart with the wooden stake in it will give you the most bang for your buck.
Ooh Aah Dracula is an impressive game, and with its promises of an RTP of up to 99% it should be worth looking into, particularly if you stick to the Hi Roller spins.
