IGT Gaming’s Bitten Online Slot Game Reviewed

Bitten is a five reel online slot game from IGT with a theme based around vampires. The vampire influence echoes throughout the game from the graphics and sound to the reel symbols and bonus games. The online slot has a look and feel of an old B Grade horror film.

Twenty pay lines are spread across the five reels and are fully selectable in increments of five; ten; fifteen or twenty. The bets per pay line are adjustable with the number of coins per pay line starting at one and going up to the maximum of five.

The Regular Bitten Reel Symbols

The regular Bitten online slot symbols include high valued playing card icons including ten; jack; queen; king and ace icons dripping in blood. These are the lower valued Bitten symbols while a female vampire; a candelabra; a blood filled goblet and a heart shaped pendent pay out the higher prize amounts.

The biggest possible jackpot prize is 250 000 which is only won when the maximum bet of 100 is in play and five of the heart pendent symbols appear on an active pay line. Betting the maximum amount can be done automatically by using the max bet button found below the reels.

The Bitten Wild Symbol and Scatter Wins

The Bitten wild symbol is the online slot game’s logo. When a wild symbol is used to form a winning combination, the winning amount is doubled up like in various games selected and played here. Apart from acting as a substitute to create a winning combination, the wild symbol also functions as a scatter symbol.

As a scatter symbol, the slot game’s logo symbol must land on a pay line in order to pay out. When the maximum bet is in play the highest award for a logo symbol is 250x the total bet for five in a row on a pay line. Four, three or two of these symbols will yield multipliers of 10x, 5x or 2x.

The Crypt Free Spins Bonus Feature

In order to gain entry into the crypt free spins bonus round feature, three or more of the Bitten crypt symbols need to appear in any position on the reels. If three of the crypt symbols are present 5 to 14 free spins are given with a 3x multiplier. Four crypt symbols will award 8 to 17 free spins with a 10x multiplier while five crypt symbols award 10 to 20 free spins with a 200x multiplier.

Before the free spins bonus round feature begins one of three displayed coffins needs to be picked. The picked coffin will then reveal the precise amount of free spins awarded. The free spins are played on a separate reel set to the one played in the Bitten base game and bet values are set at the same as the activating spin. An option to cover all of the pay lines is however available.

Up to 50 free spins can be re-triggered during the round and with each free spins comes an increase in a multiplier in increments of 1x. This means a multiplier of up to 50x is possible.
