Extra Bite for Dracula
March 5, 2009 (InfoPowa News) — IGT subsidiary Million-2-1 and the UK Barcrest Group have released the quaintly branded Ooh Aah Dracula R.I.Peater, the third of a series of popular land-based slots that have been converted to mobile gambling use. Hi-5 and Elvis Top 20, the two previous games introduced to the mobile platform, are apparently proving popular and have already been downloaded by tens of thousands of players.
In Ooh Aah Dracula players who win three times their initial stake will enter the repeater bonus game with a 50/50 chance of doubling their money. Players have the chance to pick one of four Draculas; two conceal a cash prize and two conceal the word 'stop'. If a cash prize is chosen this is added to the winning total and the bonus round continues until a ‘stop’ Dracula is chosen.
The game features three reels and five win lines and a selection of stakes can be placed, ranging from 20p to £5, with a maximum win of £1,250 from one spin on a £5 stake.
There is also the option for players to compete for prizes in Tournament Mode. Players pay a small stake for a set number of credits and attempt to climb to the top of the live leaderboard to win items such as TVs, laptops and games consoles. As an added incentive, when any of Million-2-1’s slots games are downloaded for the first time, each player is awarded £3 worth of free tournament credits.
Chris Sheffield, Director of Remote Gaming at IGT-UK Group, said: "We are delighted with Ooh Aah Dracula and think it makes a welcome addition to our expanding portfolio of games. The unique repeater bonus on this game makes it exciting for experienced and new gamers alike. Ooh Aah Dracula is a much loved land-based title faithfully reproduced for the mobile phone and a large potential new audience.
Each branded mobile slots game in the Million-2-1 portfolio contains individual qualities, from the number of reels to varying bonus features. Rainbow Riches, Cleopatra and a suite of table games are just some of the future launches planned for the U.K. mobile market, which is currently the largest single market for mobile gambling services.
