Van Helsing’s Book of the Undead is a 5 reel slot, with 3 symbol spaces in each reel. The slot uses traditional paylines, with 10 in total, playing from left to right.
Theme – This slot has a gothic horror theme. Van Helsing is a character from Bram Stoker’s “Dracula”, famed within the novel for being a vampire hunter.
Book of the Undead – The Book of the Undead symbol is both Wild and Scatter. This means that it will substitute for other symbols and that if you can land 3 or more of them anywhere on the reels you will trigger the Free Spin feature. It can also pay out in combinations of 3 or more, anywhere on the reels.
Free Spins – 3, 4 or 5 Scatters will award 10 Free Spins but the instant cash amount paid out for landing the 3 Scatters will obviously increase as you land more Scatters. A symbol will be chosen at random to expand every time it lands on the reels. You can retrigger the feature in the same way that you triggered it in the first place, but the expanding symbol will remain the same.
Van Helsing’s Book of the Undead is a well-designed slot that likes to keep things simple. You get Wilds and you get Free Spins and those Free Spins can be retriggered. The Free Spins also come with a modifier, but other than that there isn’t a whole lot left for me to mention. The house edge could be better.
