Blueprint Gaming are having a bit of a laugh with this slot machine, bringing back one of the 80s and early 90s most loved cartoon characters as a big-money slot machine game. Count Duckula allows you to relive your childhood (if you were watching it as a child, that is) over 5 reels and 40 paylines of action. Players can stake anything from a floor of 20p per spin up to a ceiling of £500 per spin on this slot machine, whilst trying to compete to win a non-progressive jackpot which is capped at around 500x your total stake.
The stake through the heart (a rather violent symbol for a child’s cartoon) is the wild symbol in this slot machine game. Wilds can substitute for all other symbols in the game, but you’ll have no luck getting them to replace Count Duckula himself, who acts a bonus icon.
Those Count Duckula bonus icons can trigger a Wall of Fame bonus, which can dish out one of six special features.
There are also in-game bonuses to be had. At any point in the game, Duckula, the Nanny or Igor may offer you added perks. Duckula can turn random symbols into wilds, whilst Igor can drop mystery potions onto symbols, changing their status. Nanny can deliver 3×3 colossal wilds onto the reels, whilst Duckula can also use bats to dish out a jackpot cash prize to players.
Players who trigger the Wall of Fame feature will win one of 6 bonuses. A Tombstone Bonus offers an instant win cash prize, whilst the Ancestor Bonus offers multipliers and potentially a Super Bonus round. Dr Von Goosewing’s Free Spins Bonus can see players enjoy 10 free games with sticky wilds, whilst Wild Heart Free Spins promise 10 games on a 4×5 reel structure, with 20 lines, and redistributed heart wilds. The Duckula Big Money Bonus is essentially a Wheel of Fortune game, whilst the Rapid Fire Cashpot feature allows players to win a cash prize by filling up metres with tomato ketchup.
If you remember the show, that’s incentive enough to play Count Duckula. Even if you don’t, the volume of special features and combination of cheap bets and a decent RTP rate makes Count Duckula well worth a look.
