The slot machine with a dark touch

Here we have a dark and exciting slot machine. Where the Min.bet is 0.20, Max.bet is a high 400 and the number of paylines is 20. This play comes without a bonus but with free spins that can deliver a lot of tasty winnings. You play on a slot machine with 5-reel and 3-row where the volatility is medium / high. Your maximum win can be up to 2000 X the amount you bet, each round you play. With an RTP of 96.06%, which is slightly above average, with that percentage in combination with medium / high volatility and a maximum winning chance of 2000 X, you have a great chance of winning a lot on each spinning round.

This game takes you into the world of the Dark king, where there are a lot of forbidden riches. Why they are just forbidden riches is not told in this story, but after seeing what the Dark king himself looks like, it does not feel so tempting to ask him about the origin of this wealth either. It is known that there is much to be gained from this king's kingdom

NetEnt is back with a slot machine again, and this time they have chosen a slightly darker and scarier path. Known for delivering both quality and quantity when it comes slots. Although this time they choose a game without a bonus, the details that the game includes are spot on. NetEnt itself has been around since 1996 with roots from previous Cherryföretagen. Throughout all of these years, they have really made a name for themselves. Therefore, it is always just as exciting when a new release takes place. Let's dive into the features of this game.

A dark king with a shiny fortune

In this dark, mysterious atmosphere you get to meet the dark king. A king reminiscent of Sauron in Lord of the Rings or for the nostalgic player, this king is perhaps even more like Lich king in the Warcraft saga. Many parables can be drawn, but they are all very dignified and express how cool the king actually is. Once you start the game, you see the dark lord himself standing to the left with his sword and around the background / menu you see a lot of skulls. Which gives the feeling that this is not some king you want to sit down for a cup of coffee with, but you want to get there and make an attempt to seize the riches. The game has a lot of cool effects that appear during the game, where the dark lord often draws his sword and moves at larger wins. The background music and sound effects really make the game stand out another notch. It contributes to a great empathy and sitting with headphones is really recommended during the game.

Glittering scatter rubies are great to collect

This game comes with a number of different symbols that you can get, where with smaller wins consist of 10, J, Q, K and A. Then there are 5 different more detailed symbols, in the form of Dark King himself and his servants. There is also a blue orb that replaces all symbols except the scatter, where this blue orb has the same value as the Dark king symbol. So, since there is no bonus, it is in the base game that you want to succeed in picking up the big win and you can do that by getting Sticky wilds and Multipliers. To successfully land a multiplier, you need to get 2 or more Wilds. The number of these Wilds you get then determines how big your multiplier will be. The maximum is 5X and the multiplier is then added to the summed win.

To activate free spins, you need to get 3 or more scatter symbols anywhere on the reels of the main game. These delightful scatter rubies provide the following:

3 Scatter symbols = 10 freespins

4 Scatter symbols = 12 freespins

5 Scatter symbols = 15 freespins

Once free spins have been obtained, it comes with Sticky wild hotspots. This is a fixed area in the shape of a cross, with 5 spots on reels 2, 3 and 4. What is so special about this cross then? Every wild symbol that lands inside it turns into a sticky wild symbol. You get an extra free spin for each sticky wild symbol and it stays on there until your free spins are over.

Got courage to enter the Dark king's cave?

Here we have a game with fine features in the form of effects when winning and evocative music. Just like NetEnt's games tend to be, this slot machine also has an extremely good user interface. As the game lacks bonus games, you instead have to look for other opportunities to get bigger wins and that could be achieved with the help of Sticky wilds and Multipliers. This results in that each spin can give a good payout, all the way up to 2000X the amount you bet with a little luck. Light a torch and head down into Dark King's scary cave.
