Vampires vs Wolves Slot Review

Vampire vs Wolves is a video slot from Pragmatic Play with 5 reels and 10 paylines. Released in July 2019, this game can be played at online casinos such as Guts, Mr Green or LeoVegas.

Theme and basic information

Vampires are a popular theme in online casinos slots. Wolves as well, though rarely werewolves such as in this case. But a combination of both is rare indeed and Pragmatic Play does a decent job of giving us a good-looking slot.

The enmity between vampires and werewolves is well-established and it’s about time we get a video slot that explores this theme. We get a bunch of good-looking werewolves (framed in blue) and elegant-looking vampires (framed in red).

The scene is set in what might very well be Victorian England and the soundtrack is dark and spooky, adding nicely to the atmosphere.

The white-haired werewolf and the highest-value vampire are both worth 80x our stake for 5 on a payline. The two females are worth each 30x our stake for 5 of a kind and the low-value vampire and wolf are worth 18x our stake for such a win.

The wild is the most valuable of all symbols, though, giving us 100x our stake for 5 on a payline. The remaining symbols are the card suit symbols looking like precious gems.

You can play this game for 0.10 per spin up to 50.00 per spin.

Waiting for the free spins

The base game does not offer a single feature. You’ll be spinning away, hoping for the odd win in this relatively volatile game and waiting for the two scatters to land on reels 1 and 5. The howling wolf is found on reel 1 and the mansion on reel 5. Landing fully stacked on each reel, they will trigger the free spins.

Now you get to choose to play either on the side of the werewolves or on the side of the vampires:

  • Vampire Spins – Whenever a vampire lands on the reels there’s a chance that it becomes a wild and stays on the reels for the remainder of your spins. This is the more volatile option that promises bigger wins. You get 8 free spins.
  • Werewolf Spins – The werewolf symbols transform into wolves during this feature and can connect to form winning combinations. Along with the wild symbol, these symbols substitute for each other, making wins more likely. This is the less volatile option which offers smaller wins more frequently. You get 14 free spins.

It is not possible to retrigger the free spin feature.

Conclusion: A cool theme but without the action we would have hoped for

The theoretical RTP (Return to Player) for Vampire vs Wolves is 96.49%, which is well above average and actually pretty good. This game is quite volatile for the most part, however. And since there’s very little action in the base game, you’ll be waiting to hit the free spins most of the time.

That’s a bit of a shame because this is a good-looking slot with a cool theme. But with two such formidable enemies you’d expect more features and more action, which is never forthcoming, not even in the free spins. Overall, it is possible to win 1,000x your stake in this slot if you hit the free spins and manage to collect tons of wilds in the Vampire Spins. But unless you manage to hit the bonus round soon, this slot can become quite the drain on your wallet, and you may find yourself looking elsewhere for more rewarding adventures. If only the base game had something more to offer…
