The A Dark Matter slots game can be found at Microgaming casinos. Microgaming as a standard now publish the slots house edge information of all their games at any online casino that holds a UKGC license (this is a requirement for all UKGC licensed casinos). As such we can say that the House Edge of A Dark Matter is 3.82%. When playing at any venue that does not hold a UKGC license and does not specifically publish the Return to Player information for their game, this information should be used as a guideline only as we cannot confirm whether or not this game is configurable.
A Dark Matter is a 5 reel game that is 3 symbols high. The game uses traditional paylines, with 5 in total playing from left to right and right to left.
Wild – The “A Dark Matter Logo” is the Wild symbol, which will substitute for all other symbols other than Scatters. Wild symbols have no individual value, meaning they can only form wins in combination with other symbols. Wilds only appear on reels 2, 3 and 4, and Wilds are stacked on reels 2 and 4 in the base game and super-stacked on the same reels during the Free Spins.
Scatter – The “Circles” symbol is a Scatter, meaning it will pay out regardless of paylines, but only in combinations of 3. The Scatter symbol will also trigger the Free Spins feature when you land 3 of them on a single spin. Scatters only appear on reels 2, 3 and 4.
Invading Wilds – A fully stacked set of Wilds on reels 2 or 4 will turn a set of adjacent reels completely Wild. A fully stacked set of Wilds on reels 2 and 4 will turn reel 3 fully Wild during the base game. During the Free Spins, this will turn the third reel fully Wild and it will also be worth x2 the bet.
Free Spins – If you trigger the feature you will be given 12 Free Spins. Each time you land a Scatter during the Free Spins you will be given one additional spin.
I have to admit to expecting a bit more from this slot. You get Free Spins and you get expanding Wilds, plus and invading Wild feature but that really is all that this slot has for me to mention. The house edge is offering decent value for money but I suspect this won’t be one you return to all that often.
