The 19th Century Gothic horror stories from writers such as Bram Stoker and Mary Shelley provide the inspiration for the latest slot creation by 1X2 Gaming, Dark Thirst.  Dark Thirst is a slot game that has followed the recent popularity of books like Twilight and TV shows such as True Blood and decided to take advantage of their popularity and create a slot which follows a similar style.  Dark Thirst is a five-reel slot; it has three rows and players can choose to play with up to twenty-five paylines, allowing you to choose a bet per spin of between 5p and £270.

Our Verdict:

Dark Thirst is a creepy and at times spine-chilling slot game, however, if you are a fan of horrors then this game will be right up your street.  The game has some truly awesome graphics and high-quality animations, and this is all set beneath a haunting giant moon ideal for vampires to hunt.  As you play, you will need to be prepared for plenty of moments which will make you jump thanks to the creepy sound effects that accompany the gameplay, but they give the slot that extra edge.  Players will also really enjoy the two different, but equally rewarding, bonus features.

Wild Symbol:

On Dark Thirst you have three special symbols, two of these symbols – the scatter and bonus – are the triggers for the bonus features, and the other special symbol is the wild symbol.  The wild symbol on Dark Thirst is a pale female vampire symbol wild, and she is special symbol because she has the ability to substitute for all the standard symbols – not any of the special symbols – to help create winning combinations.  The wild female vampire symbol can also act like normal symbols and create her own winning combinations when three or more land on a single payline.

Free Spins:

The first of the two bonus features on Dark Thirst is the Free Spin bonus feature.  This feature is triggered by the scatter symbol, the symbol with a pale looking male vampire, if enough land.  If you land three, four or five of male vampire scatters anywhere on the reels, you will receive ten free spins.   The spins will start automatically, and during the spins, there will be no multiplier, however, you will be able to re-trigger the free spins if you land at least three more male vampire scatters in a single spin.

Grave Bonus Game:

The second bonus feature on Dark Thirst is the Grave bonus game.  This feature is triggered by the bonus symbol, which is the symbol with a gravestone on it and "RIP" written across the front of it.  To activate the feature simply land three, four or five of these RIP bonus symbols on an active payline.  You will now be taken to a screen displaying graves.  Click the graves to uncover who is buried beneath.  Each inhabitant is worth a prize, but find the skeleton, and the bonus round will end and your prize pot calculated.
