Dark King: Forbidden Riches Bitcoin Slot Review
With the October 2020 release of Dark King: Forbidden Riches from Netent slots, the days leading up to Halloween are sure to be frightening. Something wicked is coming, and if you can survive the Dark King, then you may find his forbidden riches of up to 2,000x bet. Armed with wilds, wild multipliers, free spins, sticky wild hotspots and sticky wilds – can you come out alive?
There’s no doubt that the timing of Dark King: Forbidden Riches’ release around Halloween was no coincidence. Netent pulled out all the punches with the detailed artwork, designed to reinforce a theme of horror. The King (think Sauron from Lord of the Rings) stands with sword in hand to the left of the reels. To the right, is a wall of skulls of the tortured souls trapped by his evil. There are a total of 10 regular symbols, divided into 5 upper-paying symbols. It begins with the Dark King himself, but he’s followed by four of his demonic minions. Five (5) royal flush poker symbols make up the lower-paying end of the paytable. The sounds effects are chilling, as you can hear the Dark King’s whispers echoing throughout his lair.
Dark King: Forbidden Riches has an RTP of 96.06%, and you can vary the bets from 0.20 to 400. If you like the feeling of being scared, then may we also suggest Dark Vortex or Baron Samedi both from Yggdrasil.
As we peer into the Dark King’s layer, we find beacons of hope in the form of special symbols beginning with wilds that may appear on any of the reels. By participating in a win, a multiplier equivalent to all the wilds (up to 5x) on the reels applies. Wilds substitute for all symbols except the scatters and you can find them both in the main game and free spins.
The jewel scatter is another beacon of light in the King’s dark layer that will trigger 10, 12 or 15 free spins with 3, 4 or 5 of them, respectively. This feature comes with an area labelled a hot spot, occupying 5 spaces in the form of a cross on reels 2-4. Wilds landing here become sticky for the rest of the feature and increase your free spin total by 1, up to a maximum of 5 extra free spins.
Dark King: Forbidden Riches Bitcoin slot is tablet, mobile and desktop computer-ready. You only need an Android or iOS when you’re away from home.
