Bitten Slots

BittenIn Bitten, you will find one of the many vampire themed slot machines that were created by software companies in the last decade or so, all trying to take advantage of the attention that these creatures have gotten from Hollywood. Though Hollywood has been the engine that has helped this trend explode, video games, books and slot machines helped in their own way. You’re going to find in Bitten a game with dated graphics, which I guess means that it’s one of their older titles, but despite that it manages to put forward a design that looks scary and bloody, so it’s not the kind of game where vampires look like fashion models.

This game from IGT gets you 20 paylines to wager on, all of them arranged on just 5 reels. You will notice that you can get paid up to $25,000 while playing this title, with the features you find inside consisting in scatter symbols, multipliers and wilds.

Features of Bitten

You’re getting a couple of interesting wilds ands scatters in Bitten, along with some free spins and multipliers which you will enjoy taking advantage of.

The Bitten wild symbol and its substitution powers require only one of these symbols to be on the reels, but more of them can help with the same combination. They only substitute for regular symbols, so the bonus icon doesn’t benefit from their presence. The image that gets the role has a brunette lady on it, the victim of the vampire.

A scatter symbol is also present, with the same lady that is the victim appearing in it, but with the word Bonus written on the image. As a scatter, it gets to appear anywhere it wants, and it will manage to trigger the free spins bonus round, plus it will give out some prizes. Three to five scatter symbols will offer the player 3x to 200x the bet, plus a number of free spins.


Free Games Feature

With three scatter symbols, the number of spins varies between 5 and 14. Four scatters award 8 to 17 free spins. The maximum number of contributing scatter symbols is five, with 10 to 20 free spins awarded by them.

You find out the exact number of spins that you’ve won by looking in one of the boxes displayed on the screen. A bonus multiplier is offered for all the free spins, starting at 1x in the first round, and then going up by 1x for each spin that follows. If you have the maximum number of free spins, which is 20, the multiplier would go up to 20x by the time you would be done with them.


Betting options and jackpots

The $100 maximum wager of Bitten uses 100 coins of $1 each. The denomination is fixed, at $1, but you can play with the number of coins you use for each line, or with the number of lines itself. Select 1 to 20 lines, with 1 to 5 coins each, and you can get a wager that is anywhere between $1 and $100.

Your reward, should you choose to pursue it, is a 5,000x line wager multiple, with up to $25,000 being the value associated with it, while the smallest value is at $5,000.

Design and symbols

The design aims to be somewhat scary, and it manages to do that, but it doesn’t succeed at making it a good looking slot machine. It’s an older design style that they use inside, especially when the characters are being drawn, so you’re not going to find it appealing. There is plenty of blood and creepy graphics everywhere you look, so you’re not going to miss those things, but the overall design just doesn’t feel like it’s well made.


Symbols: Bitten Logo (wild, 250x the triggering bet), The Crypt Bonus (scatter, 200x the bet), Silver Broach (500x), Candelabra (400x), Glass of blood (300x), Ace (100x), King (90x), Queen (75x), Jack (60x) and 10 (50x).


Is It Worth Playing?

The fan of the horror genre and of vampires will enjoy the game, but you’d have to be a fan to have fun with these old style graphics. They might look retro, but not the good kind of retro, so the features and the prizes are the ones that the slot relies on most.

You will find Bitten at any online casino which chooses to use software from IGT, playable either for free or for real money.
