Pragmatic Play launches gothic adventure-themed new slot Blade & Fangs


iGaming content supplier Pragmatic Play has launched its latest slot, the gothic-themed online title Blade & Fangs, which promises players “an adventurous gaming experience.”

Set in a candlelit mansion in the dead of night, players will encounter a variety of fanged beasts as they explore two sets of 5×3 reels, which can merge into one, on their quest for the 5,000x maximum multiplier win. The game is played across these adjacent grids, each featuring 243 ways to win along with bats, snakes, werewolves, and other creatures.

Two special multiplier symbols (+1x and 2x), taking the shape of roses and daggers, transform the base game when they land on the same spin, merging both sets of reels into a single 6×5 grid and awarding a respin with 2x multiplier. If the +1x or 2x symbol lands during the respin, the win multiplier increases to 3x or 4x respectively – or 6x if both hit.

The arrival of three or more fiery scatters on a single spin in the base game awards 8 free spins. During the free spins round, which is played on the merged 6×5 grid, a multiplier starting at 1x is applied to all wins. This multiplier increases by one each time the +1x symbol lands and doubles whenever the 2x symbol hits. The feature can be retriggered with four additional free spins if three or more scatters land at the same time during the round.

Blade & Fangs follows the December releases of Gates of Olympus 1000 and Candy Jar Clusters.

“Pragmatic Play is set to raise a few hairs with Blade & Fangs, which includes two separate 5×3 game grids that can combine to award multiplier wins up to 5,000x! Our first Slot release of 2024 pairs novel mechanics with a thrilling theme and epic win potential,” Irina Cornides, Chief Operating Officer at Pragmatic Play, said.

Pragmatic Play currently produces up to eight new slot titles a month, while also delivering Live Casino and Bingo games as part of its multi-product portfolio, available through a single API.
