Vampire Senpai Slot Machine Game Overview
Quickspin is one of those lovely unpredictable developers that keep surprising us with almost every release. The title might be a bit confusing to the western audience (at least those of us that are not manga/anime freaks), but Senpai traditionally means teacher or mentor, or at least someone you’re trying to get affection from.
Why would you want affection from a vampire, you might ask? Well, it’s probably because the vampire wilds are extremely helpful in this game, but we’ll get more into that after we’ve covered some basics.
- Vampire Wild. This symbol works as a normal wild, substituting for all of the above symbols in a winning combination, while also having an extra use in the free spins bonus as we’ll soon see. Furthermore, it converts any surrounding people’s symbols into the corresponding turned wild symbols. These also convert any surrounding people’s symbols into turned wilds.
- Talisman Wild. This wild works just like the vampire wild, even in the free spins bonus. However, there’s also a chance on any random spin that 3-9 of these symbols can appear on reels 1-4.
- Turned Wild. This substitutes for all other symbols apart from the vampire, talisman, and bonus scatter symbols.
- Free Spins. The free spins round of the Vampire Senpai online slot is fittingly named the Reanimated Free Spins round. To trigger this, you need to spin three or more of the bonus symbols into view anywhere on the 5×5 grid. Up to 12 free spins will be granted to you when this happens, dependent upon how many scattered bonus symbols are in view.
Any vampire wild symbol appearing during the round will stay in action for the remainder of the free spins given to you. They proceed to hop to a random reel position at the beginning of each spin. Any talisman wild symbol landing will go on to lock into place for the remainder of free spins. Plus, both the vampire wild and talisman wild will add an extra free spin to your total every time they appear.
Reanimated Free Spins Bonus feature:
Vampire Senpai focuses on the Reanimated Free Spins Bonus feature. This is triggered by landing 3 or more bell bonus scatter symbols on the reels. The more you see, the more free spins you begin with:
- 3 bonus scatters = 7 free spins
- 4 bonus scatters = 9 free spins
- 5 bonus scatters = 12 free spins
- Wild vampire – Pays 20x (40x in free spins mode) for 5 on a payline
- Lady – Pays 10x for 5 on a payline
- Green guy – Pays 10x for 5 on a payline
- Purple guy – Pays 10x for 5 on a payline
- Royal symbols – Pay either 2x or 1x for 5 on a payline
Vampire Senpai is a typically cool-looking slot from Quickspin. To our knowledge, this is a totally original theme (don’t think anyone’s covered Chinese folklore zombies before!). It uses Wilds to good effect and the Transforming feature can set off some pretty decent win sequences when the symbols line upright for you.
The only drawback may be that those Wilds are pretty much all the features you get here, with small enhancements in the bonus round. So things could get a little repetitive. Nevertheless, with the regular maths model and decent potential, we anticipate this one keeping us interested for a good few sessions. If you want to give it a try too, be responsible, and have fun.
