Microgaming is recognised as one of the best casino software platforms in the world, and its slots games are especially renowned.
You’re guaranteed a good time whenever you spin a set of Microgaming reels, but the titles below come especially recommended. They are favourites of players around the world, and they are all themed on vampires and related ideas – such a common and enjoyable theme in popular culture.
Disco Night Fright
Disco Fright Night is based on werewolves, also an important part of the world of vampires. It has 5 reels and Microgaming’s now-famous 243 ways to win payline structure. This really boosts your chances of winning since, as long as the symbols appear on the reels in consecutive order, you will win something. They can run from left to right and right to left.
The combination of werewolves and disco imagery adds energy and fun to the slot. Icons on the reels include a mirror ball, a disco floor and a werewolf, with playing card symbols in a 1970s-style font making up the lower-value symbols. The reels are set in front of bright lights that evoke the feeling of a retro nightclub even more.
The mirror ball is the wild symbol, standing in for any regular icon to create even more potential payouts. The scatter symbol is the game logo, and is the only image that the wild can’t substitute for. Landing 3 or more scatters anywhere on the reels triggers 10 free spins, in which disco dancers become disco werewolves to take the theme even further. Landing 5 of these during the free spins round gets you an incredible 7500 coins.
Along similar lines to a vampire theme, but with a slightly more general horror motif, Halloweenies has 5 reels and 20 paylines. Symbols on the reels include Frankenstein’s monster, a witch, a wolf and different candies that are collected on Halloween. The top jackpot in the base game is 13000x your total stake, which should be enough to appeal to all players.
The cartoonish graphics give this game a more light-hearted feel than it might have otherwise. The Pick A Pumpkin bonus will immerse players further into the game, and requires them to choose different pumpkins to reveal cash prizes. There’s also a free spins bonus round, triggered by landing 3 or more pink rabbit scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. The number of free spins you get when this happens? Why, 13, of course!
Immortal Romance is Microgaming’s best-known and most beloved vampire-themed slot, and rightfully so. Its gorgeous graphics and detailed theme will immerse you in a gothic world of romance from the moment you start to play. It also features the 243 ways to win payline structure over 5 reels, with a top jackpot of 1500x the total stake.
The reels are set in an ornate casing, and their lower-value playing card symbols are embellished in similar designs. The 4 main icons are the 4 characters in the game – Michael, Sarah, Amber and Troy. You also see a huge, old mansion on the reels, where the action presumably takes place, and an old manuscript. The game logo is the wild symbol, and an old doorknocker is the scatter symbol.
The randomly-triggered Wild Desire bonus feature can turn up to 5 reels wild at once, delivering a whole fresh wave of wins. It is the Chamber of Spins bonus round, however, that really brings the game’s theme to life as you win even more. As you trigger it again while playing for longer, you’ll be able to choose from different bonus rounds. They are all named after one of the main characters, so first you will only be able to play Amber’s bonus round, and then Troy’s, Michael’s and Sarah’s will be added to your list of options in that order.
Each bonus spins round has a different amount of turns and other special features, with its own challenges and benefits, listed below:
- Amber – 10 free spins all with a 5x multiplier.
- Troy – 15 free spins with vampire bats randomly swarming over reels. When the bats are seen 2x or 3x multipliers are applied.
- Michael – 20 free spins with rolling reels; each time you land a win the symbols involved will change; if you spin another winning combo the multiplier will increase 1x to a 5x maximum.
- Sarah – A whopping 25 free spins! Also, if you land a wild vine symbol on the third reel it will turn a random amount of other symbols into wilds. Landing 2, 3, 4 or 5 scatter symbols will win 1, 2, 3 or 4 more free spins.
