Blade & Fangs Features

Both of Blade & Fangs simultaneously spinning game areas are 5x3, and they occasionally merge with 243 win ways possible. The low pays are the standard 10 to Ace royals, and the high pays are symbols containing animals that you would associate with the horror genre—snakes, bats and the like. To hit a win, starting from the leftmost reel, all you need to do is land matching symbols on adjacent reels. A low-pay 5-of-a-kind will win you up to 1.5x the stake, whereas a high-pay 5-of-a-kind will pocket you between 2x and 10x the stake. There are no Wilds, mind. 

There are, however, multipliers! If a purple rose with a knife sticking out of it lands on reel 1 of the top game area, it’ll multiply your win by 1x. A red rose that’s suffered a similar fate landing on reel 5 of the bottom grid will grant you 2x. If you land both types at the same time, the two game areas merge and you get a respin. During the respin, if another 1x multiplier falls, the general multiplier increases by that amount, whereas if a 2x multiplier falls, then the general multiplier is multiplied by 2x.

Bonus Games

The game’s Flaming Skull Scatter symbols don’t just grant access to the Free Spins round; they serve as pay symbols, too. You only need 3 to land on reels 2, 3 or 4 on any of the 2 grids, and you’ll move to the Free Spins round. Land 6 instead, however, and you’ll pocket an immediate 500x win before the round has even started! 

The Bonus itself consists of the 2 game areas merging and 8 free spins. You also get a multiplier of 1x. Equal to when the grids merge in the Base game, this general multiplier is always active, and whenever further multipliers land, the general multiplier increases in the same way.

Players outside the UK should be able to buy instant access to Free Spins for 100x the stake.

Blade & Fangs - Multipliers & Merging Reels

Multipliers & Merging Reels

Blade & Fangs has a 1x multiplier and a 2x multiplier. If you land both simultaneously, the 2 grids will merge to form a 6x5 grid and you’ll be granted a respin. Any further multipliers that drop will increase the general multiplier by either +1x or 2x!

Blade & Fangs - Free Spins

Free Spins

Landing at least 3 Scatter symbols merges the 2 game areas and gives you 8 free spins. You also start off with a general multiplier of 1x. Every time you land a multiplier, the general multiplier increases. Also, hitting 3 or more Scatters during play will give you 4 more free spins.

Blade & Fangs Review

Howl at the moon, dust off those worn, tight leather pants and try in vain to squeeze back into them. Pragmatic Play seems to be somewhat impervious to all the festive cheer that currently surrounds us! Horror and death metal are the order of the day in Blade & Fangs, a highly volatile slot that makes me wonder what on earth they're going to release for Easter.

Design

The setting is a lazily candlelit but otherwise darkened Church with skulls on the floor. The music, when listened to in conjunction with the metal-on-metal sound effects, sounds like Trent Reznor’s Nine Inch Nails holding a jam session after sinking one too many bloody marys. In the Free Spins round, the tempo increases, and you’re hammered in the face with some thrash metal. Both Base game and Bonus round audio tracks are interspersed with the sound of ghosts wooing and the odd scream. What’s most arresting about this game, though, is the fact that there are not 1 but 2 5x3 game areas, which are played simultaneously. It made me think of those double guitars from the days of glam rock. 

Gameplay

The Base game is kept fresh by the fact that your wins can be increased by random multiplier symbols. Plus, the two game areas, which merge at times, go a long way toward keeping players engaged, especially given how these grid mergers can be triggered by both Scatters and by simultaneously falling multipliers.

Win Potential

5,000x is a pretty low max win for a game with high volatility; however, you’ve got a respectable RTP of 96.05%. There are plenty of ways to win across these 2 game areas and don't forget that non-UK players might also be able to buy directly into the Bonus game.

My Verdict

If you’re into metal and or the horror genre in general, you’ll definitely find the audiovisuals appealing. On top of that, you’ve got good gameplay and a decent range of features. The max win isn’t massive, but given the multipliers, pay scatter symbols and double and merging game areas, there’s still plenty of potential for big wins in Blade & Fangs.

Paul spent plenty of time in arcades up and down the UK discovering all of the best fruit machines and watching them grow into the incredible online slots we see today. He still loves the basic format but also has a soft spot for games with big bonus rounds that progress as you play. Immortal Romance is one of his favourite slots of all time.
