Look and Feel
Vampire Senpai is an online slot released in July 2020 and created by Quickspin. This slot has five reels, five rows and 40 paylines. Here, we get a mixture of Eastern Europe and Eastern Asia. Vampires are very much a myth of European folklore, but a ‘Senpai’ is a Japanese word you use to show respect to someone who has more wisdom that you in your chosen field, usually a teacher or coach. We are not sure what a Vampire Senpai could teach you – in fact we think being taught by one would qualify as a real pain in the neck! Read on to discover whether we think this online slot from Quickspin has any bite, or if we’ll be saying ‘fangs for nothing’ to them instead.
It is a real pain in the neck that this game does not come with any kind of progressive jackpot. Sizeable wins are still a possibility though, with the maximum win being 8,800 times your total stake.
Play for Real Money
You will not be able to play Vampire Senpai for free or for play money in the UK, because of those blood-suckers … er, lovely folks at the UKGC. There are plenty of places that carry Quickspin’s games though, including Guts Casino. This site really meets with our approval, and has both cracking titles and superb offers, so why not pay them a visit?
As we mentioned in our introduction, this slot has five rows and five columns. You may think it’s a cluster pays slot, but it isn’t. It has paylines just like 5×3 slots, and there are forty of them. Wins are secured in the normal way too – three identical symbols on a payline from the left-hand reel onwards.
To start this slot off you just need to select your total bet, which can be anything from £0.10 to £50.00. Each spin costs ten coins.
Wins are paid as coins in line with the table below.
|Symbol||3 on a payline||4 on a payline||5 on a payline|
*if you land five wilds, or five vampire senpai during free spins, then you win 400 coins.
This game has a ‘Turning Wild’ feature. Any Vampire Senpai wild symbol that lands on the reels next to a character (not playing card) symbol will turn the symbol into a ‘Turned Wild’ symbol. In turn, any Turned Wild symbol will then go and change any character symbol next to it into a Turned Wild symbol as well. All wilds substitute for all other symbols aside from the bonus scatter.
There is the ‘Talisman Mystery Wilds’ feature to look out for as well. Here you’ve the chance of turning between three and nine symbols into Talisman Wilds, but only on the first four reels. You will not find Talisman Wilds during the base game.
In keeping with the vampire theme of this slot there is also the Reanimated Free Spins Bonus. The bonus symbol is a golden bell, and if you land three of them anywhere on the reels then you will be awarded seven free spins. Landing four will grant you nine free spins, and five will award you a dozen free spins.
During free spins Vampire Wilds that land will remain on the reels for the remainder of your freebies. At the start of each spin they will hop to a new random reel position. Talisman Wilds that land are locked into position for all remaining free spins. All Wilds (Vampire or Talisman) will award you one extra free spin.
Graphics and Sounds
We always happy to see a Quickspin slot as, graphically, they usually look very good indeed and Vampire Senpai is no exception. What’s most impressive about this game is when the Vampire Senpai symbol lands next to a character symbol, the character gives a little scream and look of horror as they are transformed into a Wild symbol themselves. The characters also smile when they are involved in a win. We always like to see little touches like this.
The music chosen has an ambient, Eastern theme that is pitched perfectly in that it doesn’t become so annoying when you play that you have to punch the mute button. The rest of the stings and stabs fit in very nicely too.
It’s sad that Quickspin only release one slot per month, but at least this means they produce high quality slots as Vampire Senpai shows. It’s really an odd mix – Japan has no vampire folklore – but when it’s the theme of an online slots game it works very well.
We are not out for your blood – we are just out to persuade you to try Vampire Senpai or other new online slots for 2020 at one of our many recommended online casino sites!
A. We don’t know about that, but they have made in the past some very fine games indeed. Among the other classic games that Quickspin have made in recent months, you could try Arcane Gems, Diamond Duke or Nero’s Fortune. For classic Quickspin games, try Hall of the Mountain King, Divine Dreams or Spinions Beach Party.
A. Guts Casino has countless games from many, many developers. It also has casino games, a live casino, a sports book and even a dedicated poker room! When it comes to online casino play they are a bit of an all-rounder.
