Dark King: Forbidden Riches is a game of dark gothic horror, and if that’s what you’re into then this one has the best credentials around. With skulls lining up on those reels like death metal symbols, it will be quite hard to take your eyes off of them for long enough to focus on anything else in the background.
This slot was developed by prolific designers Netent who have also brought us great games such as Starburst and Gonzo’s Quest. We will take a deeper look at the game below in our full review.
The Dark King: Forbidden Riches slot game is a tantalizing, immersive experience that even manages to look amazing in spite of its foreboding imagery. The graphics are so realistic and the quality on display here rivals video games themselves! The ominous soundtrack heightens your tension and we have to hand it to the designers for the amount of detail that has gone into this slot.
The symbols on the reels are creative and engaging. The low-value symbols of 9 through A, given a scary gothic makeover have an elegant simplicity that is contrasted by high value, grotesque characters including a dark knight wielding his whip with mastery while atop horseback or using it to pull souls from their bodies for eternal torture in hell. The animations in this game are nothing short of spectacular. Ghost hands and jets fire across the screen while thick mists envelope the reels, all accompanied with a terrifying soundtrack.
With a sizeable maximum bet of £/€/$400 you can hit some big wins if you are prepared to ride of the wave. The maximum win from standard symbols is pretty low at 25x your bet for five Dark King images. There’s an orb symbol that multiplies your wins by 25x and substitutes for other symbols to make wins! With a 96.06% RTP we feel this slot will give you chances to make some decent wins.
Another great thing about these lower-tier prizes is that they rely heavily on “sticky” Wild symbols in order to take things up a notch during both rounds of play, this is an opportunity to pick up some wins. You can get multipliers for landing more than two wilds on the screen, maxing out at five times your score if you get lucky and manage to land all of them. If you’re lucky enough to land five of the red crystal scatters, then 15 free games will be activated during which time a cross shape will appear on your reels. Land your wilds and they’ll stick there for the rest of free spins! That’s not all. Your multiplier stays in place too, so you can land a pretty large total overall if the slots are favoring you.
Dark King: Forbidden Riches is a slot game that combines gorgeous graphics and an extraordinary setting with some cool bonus features. There are still those awesome wilds to think about, but this is definitely one for fans of the horror genre!
