Introducing Vegans vs Vampires
Vegan vs Vampires is the latest slot from the development team at Gluck Games and offers up the most monumental showdown of 2020s Helloween. Who will immerse as the victor is down to you as you get to choose your side and then lead them to victory to be rewarded with some top prizes.
Helloween always sees a glut of developers churning out their seasonal offerings which are inspired by all things spooky and stories of fantasy creatures and beyond. However, the great thing about this slot is that it is one of the most original and certainly stands out amongst the competition with its unique concept. It is more amusing than scary with cartoon graphics and a totally whacky theme, but it does provide some much-needed diversity amongst the endless boring Helloween styled slots.
The developers have not just created a quirky theme they have also managed to offer some engaging and unique game play. The action unfolds on a dynamic set of reels which can expand at random times during the base and bonus games. The default size is 5x5 and offers 25 ways to play, although at the beginning of every spin it can expand to 6x5 or 7x5 which then increases the pay lines to 35 – 45, respectively.
Although the slot has been designed to be played on a smartphone it can be played just as well on any device however unfortunately the statistics are not quite as impressive. You can bet from a minimum of $0.05 per spin to a maximum of $150 per spin so a range that will appeal to a variety of players. Whilst there is no information currently regarding the volatility level but based upon my testing, I would rate it as medium. Unfortunately, with a lower than average return to player which sits at 95% you will not be showered with gifts. The maximum potential from a single spin is 500x your bet.
As the title suggests the symbols are split into two different categories, these being vampire and vegan. The vegans are armed with deadly weapons including carrot stakes, crossed corns, garlic missiles, onion potions whereas on the vampire side there are male and female vampires, skulls, candles, and a bear trap complete with veggie bait.
Landing at least three of the same symbols side by side on the same pay line will reward you with a win, and both vegan and vampire symbols will reward from 2x to 3x your bet when you land combinations of 5 of a kind. The wild is also on hand to create winning combinations as it can substitute for the regular symbols as well as paying 10x for landing a full combination. All symbols can also appear stacked and as so full grids are possible to achieve.
There are no surprises that the features in this slot have appeared in other slots, but they do the job that they need to whilst also adding some excitement to the game play. You can expect to come across free spins, the bonus reel, and the bonus game.
The key to success in the features is the wheel bonus feature and this is activated by landing three of the scatter symbols on your 1st, 3rd, and 5th, reels. You are then provided with one spin from which your prize will be determined. The fortune wheel has 19 sections, 17 of which have cash prizes of up to 500x your bet and the other two will lead you to either the Vegan Free Spins or Vampire Tower features.
If you land the wheel pointer on the Vegan Free Spins you are rewarded with 10 free spins just for starters. Like the “Book of” slots this slot offers a special symbol that is chosen before the action begins, and it becomes an expanding symbol for the duration of the bonus. Once the regular pay outs are calculated the expanded symbols award further prizes. The best thing with this must be that the symbols do not have to be adjacent to provide a win combination.
Once you have laded the pointer on the Vampire Tower feature section you are then taken to a tower with 5 floors, where you begin from the bottom with the aim to make it to the top. Every floor has several windows, and it is down to you to choose and the windows reveal the following prizes.
The bats will reward you with a cash prize, a vegan provides a cash prize, and you can proceed to the next floor and the crossed carrots provide you with a cash prize and a retrigger. You pick the windows one at a time until they either provide you with the advance or the trigger symbol, and you have one final chance to uncover the Advance symbol and if not the bonus game comes to an end, all wins are calculated and paid at the end of the bonus round.
The best way I can describe this slot is fun and exciting that has been carefully crafted with a bizarre yet humorous theme as well as offering good bonus features and a relatively good return rate. I believe Vegans vs Vampires will certainly appeal to a wide audience due to the original design although the 500x maximum win is not quite what players will expect from a modern game.
I really enjoyed playing Vegans vs Vampires it is an action-packed slot and makes a great alternative to the seasonal slots currently available. Whether I would play it all year round with all the other competitor slots around but if you are a fan of the theme there will be no stopping you!
