Wild Blood 2 – what you need to know
Players who remember the original Wild Blood slot will instantly notice that Wild Blood is much bigger. With six reels instead of five, and four rows instead of three, the number of symbols is increased by over 50%!
Stats-wise, this is a medium volatility slot (5 out of 10), with 576 ways to win, and a 96.18% return to player ratio.
Low symbols are playing card values (10, J, Q, K, and A). High symbols are a Dagger (apparently stuck into a photo), a Skull (topped by a burning candle), and the three lovely ladies of our story: Laura, Margaret, and Rebecca.
The Wild is a handsome male vampire with a plunging neckline and lots of mascara. This symbol appears as normal on reels 2, 3, 4, or 5. It only appears on reel 6 as a Stacked Wild, and when it does it triggers a great feature called a Vampire Bat Re-spin.
The Vampire Bat Re-spin
We quite liked this feature during our demo play (see video below). This was partly because it occurred fairly regularly, and partly because the graphics of this feature are particularly satisfying.
As stated above, this feature is triggered by a Stacked Wild, which can only occur on Reel 6. When it lands, the vampire transforms into a colony of bats which then flies over the reels and lands on Reel 1 before turning back into a Stacked Wild. While this is going on, a free re-spin is underway, and as Reel 1 is now a Stacked Wild the chance of a win is significant.
Bloodlust Free Spins
The Wild Blood 2 bonus game is triggered when three or more Scatters land on a single spin. Fittingly (although rather unusually) the Scatter symbol is what appears to be a vial of blood. Which is kind of gross.
LAURA: choose this blonde beauty and each Wild during the free spins will spread up and down one symbol in either direction. If a Vampire Bat Re-spin is triggered during the Free Spins, Laura symbols appearing on reels 2, 3, 4, or 5 on the respin will turn into Wilds.
MARGARET: this ravishing redhead collects Wilds. When she collects 4 the multiplier is increased by 1 (up to a maximum of 5x) and two additional respins are added to the bonus game. Like Laura, Margaret will turn into a Wild on Vampire Bat Re-spins if she lands on reels 2, 3, 4, or 5. No scatters appear during the bonus game if a player chooses Margaret, so rely on collecting Wilds to extend the bonus game.
REBECCA: choosing the girl with the raven hair will cause Wilds to have 2x or 3x multipliers, which add up cumulatively when multiple Wilds land (up to a maximum 81x). Like the others, Rebecca will turn into a Wild on reels 2, 3, 4, or 5 during a Vampire Bat Re-spin.
Why we love Wild Blood 2
This is a classic slot done well. The format and mechanics are familiar enough for it to be easy to understand, but different enough to keep players interest. The Vampire Bat Re-spins are a great feature, and happen a LOT in our experience!
We really struggled to get the Scatters to land to trigger the free spins game (we got it just once in roughly 600 spins), which is surprising for a medium-volatility slot, but that was probably just bad luck. Having three different features during the free spins game is great, and ensures that there is something new to try even during a long session.
Another reason to love this slot? It is made by Play’n Go. We like their slots, as do our readers, and for good reason.
