and unchain his dark majesty’s heart –
a fortune will unveil its disguise,
scoring riches the dark art”?
How To Play Dark King: Forbidden Riches
Look to the fabled paytable for knowledge of your winnings – its amount will indicate how much you win on a bet line for either cash or coins. Any applicable multipliers will multiply the amount gained. If you score in succession from the leftmost reel to the rightmost then the betline will pay. Only the highest win per bet line is paid. In the dark tomes of the game’s information section you can find examples of the winning combinations, if you dare!
It would not be a game of fate and destiny without an arcane symbol of monetary delight! Hidden within the reels is an area in the shape of a cross that covers 5 spots and sits on reels 2, 3 and 4. This immensely powerful area is known as a… Sticky Wild Hotspot. Wild symbols that land within this area will be blessed, transforming into Sticky Wild symbols. These Sticky Wild symbols are your friends and allies in the chambers of the Dark King – A sticky wild symbol awards 1 Extra Free Spin and remains on the reels until Free Spins end.
On the subject of Free Spins… let’s find out what alien treasures the Dark King has in store…
Free Spins And Bonuses
Joy to those blessed by the dark one and his sacred symbols of scattering! Three or more Scatter symbols appearing anywhere on the reels activate Free Spins. However you can activate more by getting more scatter symbols:
3 Scatter symbols = 10 Free Spins
4 Scatter symbols = 12 Free Spins
5 Scatter symbols = 15 Free Spins
Remember that Free Spins come with Sticky Wild hotspots, (the fixed area in the shape of a cross). Any Wild symbol landing on these Sticky Wild hotspots transforms into a Sticky Wild symbol and awards one Extra Free Spin. The maximum number of Extra Free Spins awarded during a session is 5.
Dark King: Forbidden Riches Verdict
A dark and destiny driven addition to the NetEnt library but a quirky and well put together one at that, roll your bones with the devil, and see what riches there are awaiting you!
An excellent tip would be to land three Scatter symbols to get into Free Spins. This will set you up to land a few Wilds in the hotspot zone and around the reels. This will enhance the multiplier, gifting you with extra spins and added treasures from the Dark Kings troves…
Take your destiny into your own hands and be the player that fulfils the prophecy of the Dark King and his dastardly slots!
