Nobody really enjoys going to the doctor, do they? But if take another look at the name of this doctor once more you might realise… that’s right, this Dr is even worse. We’re not entirely sure we’d want such a doctor to be taking our blood tests, but as another one of Rival Gaming’s three-reel slot products, how does Dr. Acula (Dracula, see?) live up to others of this ilk?
Well, for a start, Rival has added some dark dramatic graphics into it. The first of the game’s symbols comes in the form of the vampire nurse, which is followed on by a syringe filled with blood. There’s also a symbol of a pair of blood bags on the reels, plus a symbol of several test tubes that are also filled with blood. Moving to the higher end of the scale, the three different version of the number 7 operate as the game’s highest paying standard additions. You’re able to receive up to 225 coins from the orange number 7.
The setup of this slot is made up of three reels and three rows, which is a traditional slot game layout. Alongside this, Rival Gaming has added a set of five pay lines into it. You can reduce the number of these that are in action per spin just by using the “Select Lines” button. Afterwards, you have the possibility of customising your wager as well. Dr. Acula allows you to adjust the value of a single coin up to £5 and bring between one and three of these into action per line. This means that the maximum wager in the game stands at £75 per spin.
Classic slot games don’t often incorporate special features, and Dr. Acula falls pretty much in line with this. Other than the addition of a wild symbol, it doesn’t provide you with any extra specialities. It is, of course, Dracula himself (or Dr. Acula as he’s known in this Rival slot) who works as the wild symbol.
Being a wild, he can show up on the reels and substitute for all of the other standard symbols of the game. This means that he can participate in one or more winning combinations, essentially making it easier for you to form them. Three of the wild Dr. Acula symbols forming a win will reward you with up to 1,000 coins as a win.
Dr. Acula may only be a three-reel offering from Rival, but that doesn’t stop it from being entertaining in its own right. The graphics are very atmospheric, while the selection of symbols is much more interesting than what is usually found in slots of this type. The addition of the wild symbol also ensures that there’s something more to enjoy about it. Granted, we may want a lot more from a slot with the vampire theme behind it, but for a traditional slot offering Dr. Acula makes for a nice option to try.
