Dr Acula Slot

The dark world of zombies, beasts, vampires, ghosts and all those things that make up what we call ‘supernatural’ has been very comprehensively represented by almost every leading online casino software developer through an assortment of slots. This is Halloween month and we have already seen providers talk of developing new games to suit the mood. Rival Gaming is one well-known provider that has contributed to the growing number of games in this arena with its latest video slot – Dr. Acula.

Dr. Acula is a 3-reel slot from Rival Gaming that comes with 5 flexible paylines. The name itself is a play on that legendary vampire, Dracula. The theme may be dark but the game itself is a whole lot of fun. The grey wall in the background against which the reels are set is the perfect place to start off on this adventure into the heart of Dracula’s castle. All the symbols reflect the theme with stunning clarity as well.

The highlight of Dr. Acula is its simplicity. There are no complex features, bonus rounds and other such elements to help you win big. You win big just by landing the right symbols on the right places. Helping you along are amazing graphics and an equally haunting sound track.

Ever since its release on 15th October, 2018, Dr. Acula has been fetching the casinos it is available at a steady inflow of footfalls, from beginners as well as veterans. These include South African players as well because of the availability of the game at casinos that accept these players. The top 3 South African Rival casinos offering this exciting game currently are SlotsCapital, Desert Nights Casino and Da Vinci’s Gold.

While the game looks and plays great, at its core is a very critical non-core related element that makes it so appealing: simplicity. The graphics are phenomenal, as are the animations. The little bats flying around as the reels start spinning is a sight to behold. The layout itself is different from what you get usually in Rival slots: the paytable elements are all listed out directly on the game screen to save you the hassle of searching for them.

There are other things that help this casino stand apart. One of them is the ability to form wins not just by landing 3 of the same symbols across the reels but also by landing different symbols that have similar elements and features together in a winning combination across the reels.

All the symbols are completely in sync with the theme, which is of Dr. Acula using the help of his zombie nursing attendant to work on humans and provide them with blood transfusions. Other symbols in the game include test tube racks with blood in the tubes, plasma packets, and syringes with blood. There is also the number 7 in 3 different shades.

The wild symbol in the game is Dr. Acura himself. He replaces all the other symbols and gives you cool wins. Dr. Acura is also the sole symbol responsible for giving you the fixed static 1000-coin jackpot: you trigger this jackpot by landing 3 Dr. Acura symbols anywhere across the reels.

Playing the game is not difficult at all. You can play the game by clicking the game icon to load it on the device you are using – desktop, laptop, mobile smartphone or tablet. If you are using a mobile device ensure that it is compatible with at least any of the following platforms Android, iOS, Windows Phone or BlackBerry devices.

Once the game loads on your device screen, you will need to place your wager. There are 5 paylines and you can pay a minimum of 0.09 for 1 paylines to a maximum of 75.00 across the 5 paylines. This gives you a minimum-maximum deposit range of 0.09 to 75.00. You can increase or decrease the bet size by clicking the ‘-‘ and ‘+’ buttons respectively. Once your bets are placed click the Spin button to get your game underway – it is as easy as that!

One thing about Dr. Acula that you may find interesting is the fact that there is no separate bonus round or free spins offered. All wins come with the symbols forming winning combinations directly or in collaboration with each other. This may sound like a big limitation to some but it actually makes things that much easier: you know there is no jackpot and are therefore free to work out your betting carefully to ensure maximum wins at minimum risk.
