Halloween is just around the corner and luckily there seems to be an abundance of new, horror-themed online slots games designed to entertain and spook us. Many of the latest creepy slots are zombie-themed, but this new one from NYX Gaming is called Dark Thirst and features a fascinating, intense vampire theme. The 5 reels of Dark Thirst are set in front of a full moon that lights up a vast and spooky landscape. There are bats flapping across the screen, spiders’ webs and a couple of haunted towers in the distance. Couple the eerie landscape with the atmospheric, classical music and fabulous sound effects and the result is a superbly-themed game. There are 25 pay lines on offer on the reels of Dark Thirst, a free spins game and a bonus round. If all this has you thirsty for more, simply read on for more details on this haunting and intriguing game.
As you’d expect, the reel symbols of Dark Thirst are totally in keeping with the vampire theme. The highest value symbols are vampires. There’s also vampire teeth, a bat, a flute of blood, a bible, a vial and some garlic.
There’s a female vampire wild symbol – she doesn’t look like someone you’d be happy about meeting in a dark alley – and she will substitute all other symbols but the scatter and bonus. The scatter is yet another vampire, and there is also an RIP gravestone bonus symbol in play.
- Free spins – land 3 or more vampire scatter symbols to trigger a very bloody, intense and atmospheric 10 free spins. The free spins game is great, and as an added bonus, all prizes are subject to a 3x multiplier!
- Bonus Game – landing 3 or more graveyard bonus symbols on an active pay line will trigger this game. You’ll be presented with 12 graves and your job is to find vampires hiding within the graves. Click and discover vampires for prizes, but find an innocent body and your bonus game ends.
We love creepy games that successfully manage to pull of the spooky effect and this is undoubtedly one of them. In addition to an impressive design, theme and effects, Dark Thirst offers a truly engaging game with a brilliant free spins round and something a little different within the bonus game. There’s an RTP of 95% too. This is a ‘must-play’, whether you love vampires or not, it’s not to be missed.
