Bitten Video Slot review
Bitten is an IGT-powered video slot with 5 reels and 20 paylines – it’s almost identical to the popular Cleopatra II slot except the theme is a vampire one rather than an Egyptian one. You can play away from 20p a spin to as much as £10 a spin – you can also find this game in land based casinos.
The Bitten symbol is the wild in the game and, as with Cleopatra II, gives you double the reward when 2 form part of winning combination. Like with Cleopatra II, it has a great free spins feature – named the Crypt Free Spins Bonus feature. 3 or more the Crypt Bonus symbol will activate the feature – you need to choose from 3 coffins to determine the number of free you will get initially (between 5 and 20 free spins):
- 3 the Crypt Bonus symbols – between 5 and 14 free spins (plus 3 times your stake)
- 4 the Crypt Bonus symbols – between 8 and 17 free spins (plus 10 times your stake)
- 5 the Crypt Bonus symbols – between 10 and 20 free spins (plus 200 times your stake)
Furthermore, you will begin with a 1x multiplier and this increases by 1 for every single free spin. If you get 20 free spins initially for example, the last free spin will be subject to a 20x multiplier. There’s more – you can retrigger more free spins (by getting 3 or more the Crypt Bonus symbols) – there’s up to 50 free spins to be won which means up to a massive 50x multiplier!
Bitten is identical to Cleopatra II in gameplay but different in theme. Despite my preferring the Egyptian version, Bitten is a very good slot game due to the free spins feature. It’s quite a medium to high variance game so be careful. As with Cleopatra II, you can win up to 50,000 times your stake if you’re lucky! Saying that, if you like vampire themes, you can’t go wrong with Microgaming’s Immortal Romance.
