There are two kinds of people in this world: those who love fairytale movies with happy endings, and those who enjoy nothing more than a good old-fashioned brutal horror film. There’s nothing wrong with enjoying a bit of Hollywood violence every now and then.
If you’re a big fan of all things horror, Dark Thirst by 1×2 Gaming is just the slot game for you. Spin your way through a slew of bats, vampires, and bloodthirsty images. And if you’re brave enough to step into the macabre world of Dark Thirst, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to win scary big rewards.
As if the awesome theme and plethora of great rewards weren’t enough, Dark Thirst comes equipped with all sorts of great features, including full bet customization, detailed instructions, and a sweet 3D intro that sets the spooky mood for what’s to come.
Dark Thirst is a 5-reel, 3-row slot game with a total of 25 paylines that give you tons of opportunities to win. You can toggle the number of active paylines at any time by clicking the numbers on either side of the reels or using the “Lines” setting in the bottom-left corner of the game. In addition to setting your bet amount and the number of active paylines, you can also set the coin value, allowing you to place a more precise bet.
The symbols in Dark Thirst are all vampire-related images. Unlike many of 1×2 Gaming’s slot games, all of the symbols in this game—except the wild and scatter—only pay out when you land 3 or more. In order from least to most valuable, these are the symbols: garlic, holy water, coffin, goblet of blood, bat, vampire teeth, female vampire, male vampire. The highest reward from these symbols is 500 coins.
In addition to the regular symbols, there are three special symbols in this game. The wild symbol can substitute for any symbol (except the bonus and scatter symbols) on the same payline to create a win. The scatter symbol awards you with 10 free spins when you land 3 or more of them anywhere on the board. If you get 3 or more of the bonus symbols on a regular payline from left to right, you’ll trigger the bonus game. In this game, you choose the order in which you want to dig up the gravestones; dig them up in the optimal order and you’ll get a huge reward.
For more information on the symbols and rules in Dark Thirst, click the “Paytable” button in the bottom-right corner of the game.
1×2 Gaming does a really good job of making sure all of their slot games are available on their website. You can easily play Dark Thirst for free online by going to 1x2gaming.com, going to the “Products” section, and finding Dark Thirst in the list of slot games. You will not, however, be able to play for real cash through their website.
Unfortunately, the one problem 1×2 Gaming has with their slot games is mobile availability. Because they use Adobe Flash Player for their free online slot games, you can’t play them on your phone. Not only that, there’s no downloadable mobile version of any of their slot games available.
Whether you can’t get enough of all things vampires or you’re just looking for a fun new slot game to play, you should definitely give Dark Thirst a shot. It plays like any 5-reel 3-row slot game for the most part, but it’s packed full of great features that make it a really fun game.
The full suite of symbols was nice to see as some games don’t bother win bonus/free spins symbols. And when you do trigger the bonus game, it’s a fun one that actually gives you some really good win opportunities.
Having full bet customization is another nice feature. By allowing you to set the coin value as well as your bet amount and the number of active paylines, this game lets you place a wider range of bets. This is helpful when trying to find a bet amount that works for you.
