Blood Eternal is a vampire-themed slot game developed by Betsoft that tells the story of a dramatic romance featuring vampires and their victims. For some reason, vampires always seem to be rich in these stories. So, maybe that’s why developers seem to think this a great theme for a slot game?
More likely, Betsoft saw the success that Microgaming had with Immortal Romance and decided to give the genre their own spin. (Pun not intended.) But how does it stack up?
Blood Eternal has a return-to-player percentage of 95.03%, which is lower than most other Betsoft slots. The volatility is also set at medium, so don’t expect to win too easily – well, that’s what we learned from our experience. Perhaps this is just coincidental, but this is the first game we played and only registered a handful of wins in a long time.
We can’t even say that the jackpot prize makes up for the volatility and slightly reduced RTP. At 50,000 coins, it’s a big prize, but certainly also lower than some of the other games the software developer is pushing.
When you play a Betsoft game, you expect great 3D graphics because this is how the software developer has positioned themselves throughout their existence. Unfortunately, Blood Eternal falls short of this visual expectation. The images look badly rendered, which is annoying because we expect more from such an esteemed publisher.
Outside of looks, this is a 6×3 game with 30 paylines. The extra reel adds more chances to win and lose. Depending on what sort of player you are, it could be a pro or a con.
Betsoft games often have a lot going on in them. So, here is all you need to know about Blood Eternal’s features:
Blood Eternal’s symbols include theme-related images and traditional card symbols. If you have ever watched a traditional vampire film before, you’d probably be able to guess a few of the themed-images outright.
But, we’ll take the suspense factor out of it by saying the themed-symbols you can expect to see zooming across the reels include: a castle in a suspect land (probably, Transylvania), a bat, a crucifix, a gargoyle, a blue vial that we assume is holy water, a red vile that we assume is blood, a vampire man, a vampire woman, a mortal man, and a mortal woman.
The game features a few different wilds. The main wild is a simple golden logo. However, the vampire and human symbols can also act as dual wilds and scatters. Land a human and vampire together on the board, and you will trigger the free spins feature.
The bats in the game work as multipliers. You can multiply your winnings up to three times for a substantial prize.
The bet range in Blood Eternal is quite huge, which is pretty standard for Betsoft games. The minimum bet starts at 0.01c per line, making for a minimum bet of 0.30c per spin with all reels active.
The maximum per line is $1. This makes for a maximum bet of $150 per line when you have increased the bet per line to five.
The only real bonus feature in Blood Eternal is the free spins mode. You can activate this feature by landing a vampire and human symbol together on the reels, as mentioned above. When you activate it, you get eight free spins.
When the feature starts, the vampire and human symbols will stick the reels and act as wilds, completing wins. So, you are basically guaranteed to walk away with something after the free spins mode.
Blood Eternal Final Rating
Blood Eternal isn’t a bad game, but it isn’t a great one either. We think that Betsoft has done a lot better in the past, which is why we may also be looking at this game so harshly. Overall, it’s fun to play, but it is temperamental with its rewards. We didn’t like the extra reel, but at least they tried something.
Overall, we’re going to rate Blood Eternal 7 out of 10. It may not play to our tastes, but it’s not a bad game. There is a chance you could enjoy it immensely.
