Vampire Senpai (Quickspin) slot review
Hopefully, it's not the vampires who are having a good time here, as these bloodsuckers are the ones you prefer to stay away from! Thank goodness that these vampires can transform into lucrative wilds! By the way, the green vampire reminds me more of the Ghostbusters film in the '80s.Play Now

Vampire Senpai slot – gameplay and features
Vampire Senpai has 5 reels with 5 symbols each. There are 40 fixed paylines.
The vampires (red, green, and purple) are the three premium symbols and yield a 10x win for 5-of-a-kind.
The A, K, Q, and J are the low-paying symbols.
This slot is all about the wilds. Five wilds on a payline are good for a win of 20x.
There are no less than three types of wilds.
- Vampire Wild (a blue vampire with red shoes, Chinese golden hat, and shiny golden teeth)
- Turned Wild (a blue vampire with a label where “wild” is written)
- Talisman Wild (a gold label where “wild” is written)
These wilds replace all symbols, except the other wilds and the Bonus Scatter symbols.
Turning Wild Feature and the Talisman Mystery Wild Feature
There are two powerful features in the main game.
We have the:
Turning Wild Feature: If you spin The Vampire Wild and have an adjacent (horizontal, vertical or diagonal) vampire symbol, it transforms into a Turned Wild.
The resulting Turned Wilds can also convert other adjacent vampire symbols into Turned Wilds.
Talisman Mystery Wilds Feature: At any given moment, a kind of whirlwind appears on the screen.
It drops at least three and at most nine Talisman Wild symbols. These land anywhere on reels 1 to 4.
How do you activate the reanimated free spins?
You get 7 free spins if you manage to spin 3 Bonus Scatter symbols.
If you manage to land 4 or 5, you get 9 and 12 free spins, respectively.
Each Vampire Wild or Talisman Wild that you spin during the free spins awards one extra free spin.
Reanimated Free Spins Bonus – wilds, wilds, and more wilds
The reanimated free spins are (in terms of gameplay) the same as the main game.
So also here, you benefit from the Turning Wild Feature and the Talisman Mystery Wilds Feature.
There are, however, three crucial differences:
1) Once a Vampire Wild has landed, it stays on the screen for the remainder of the free spins.
It walks from one place to another and allows you to enjoy the Turning Wild Feature much more often.
2) When a Talisman Wild appears on the screen, it becomes sticky for the remaining free spins.
3) A winning combo of 5 wilds yields a win of 40x (in the main game, it’s 20x).
If everything goes your way, you’ll have an incredible amount of wilds at the beginning of the free spins that also become sticky.
In that case, your balance can go sky-high!
Payout percentage (RTP)
The payout percentage of Vampire Senpai is 96.19%.
It’s around the average of online slots.
The variance (volatility) of Vampire Senpai is medium to high.
Quickspin’s is not transparent about it. I expect the slot to have a medium to high variance, though.
The highest win is a whopping 8.800x, and the number of wilds (of which many can be sticky) can be enormous.
Based on that, I expect that most top wins will be around 500x to 1,000x.
Time will tell!
Pros and cons
- The slot has something magical. Probably because of the vampires that transform into wilds.
- Graphically it looks stunning.
- The free spins are exciting.
- The features with all the wilds are original.
- I can’t put my finger on it, but it feels like something is missing for Vampire Sensai to be a top-class slot.
- Perhaps the theme is a bit blunt.
- A ghostbusters theme would have taken that feeling away from me. But hey, that’s only my opinion!
So, who’ll like the slot? And who won’t?
Players who appreciate good-looking slots with sound gameplay will enjoy this one.
The slot is innovative.
It would be best if you preferred to take risks.
The slot is pretty volatile.
3 out of 5 stars.
