Dark King: Forbidden Riches is a 5 reeled slot and each reel is 3 symbols high. The slot uses traditional paylines, with 20 in total, playing from left to right.
Theme – As Halloween nears it is no surprise that this slot has a gothic horror theme. This is a world of the undead, one that the Dark King resides over.
Wild – The “Blue Orb” is the Wild symbol, meaning they will substitute for all symbols other than Scatters. The Wilds also come with a multiplier. The multiplier is equal to the number of Wild on the reels, raging from 1x the bet to 5x the bet. That multiplier can be applied to any payline win that lands at the same time.
Scatter – The Scatter symbol is the “Ruby”. 3 or more of them anywhere on the reels will trigger the Free Spins.
Free Spins – 3, 4 or 5 Scatter symbols will trigger 10, 12 or 15 Free Spins, respectively. During the Free Spins there is a Cross that is 3 symbols high on the middle reels and 3 symbols wide, starting on reel 2 and ending on reel 4. This is known as the Hot Spot and any time a Wild symbol lands in this area during the Free Spins it will stick in place for the remainder of the spins and award an additional Free Spin.
Dark King: Forbidden Riches is a decent enough looking slot but it is not the one that will live long in the memory. There are only really 2 features and, whilst this isn’t always a bad thing, in this instance those features are fairly basic. You get Free Spins and they come with a modifier that allows for sticky Wilds and you get Wilds that come with multipliers. The house edge is a little higher than I would like it be and as such I can’t help but be a little disappointed by this slot.
