The Dark Queen slots game can be found at casinos offering EGT software. EGT are primarily an offline slots terminal producer but have recently moved into the online market. As a standard EGT do not publish the RTP/House Edge information for their slots games within the game help file or paytables. However as part of the UKGC license requirements many UKGC licensed operators have started to publish this information for all of their games. As such we can tell from Jetbull’s site that the House Edge of Dark Queen is 3.96%.
Don’t eat the apple!
Dark Queen is a 5 reel game with 20 paylines and you can bet up to 20 coins on each payline.
The ‘Magic Mirror’ symbol is Wild.
There are two bonus features when playing Dark Queen. The first bonus feature is activated when you receive the ‘Poisoned Apple’ symbol anywhere on reel 1. The Poisoned Apple symbol is Wild and turns all J, Q, K and A symbols into Wild symbols.
The second bonus feature is activated randomly at the end of any playing round. When this happens you will be taken to a new screen showing 12 face down cards. Select the cards one at a time to reveal one of the 4 suit symbols. When you’ve revealed 3 matching suit symbols the bonus round ends and you are awarded the progressive jackpot associated with that suit of cards.
Dark Queen offers the chance to play for a Progressive Jackpot at what is actually a pretty reasonable House Edge. Even if the only other bonus feature is a basic complimentary spins feature, this is pretty good value for money. However you can get the same features and Progressive Jackpots for less if you’re smart about your selection of EGT games.
