Dark King Forbidden Riches™ video slot sets the tone for Halloween 2020
As if we need a scary feast to make 2020 more interesting, it’s happening anyway! We can all dress up as white balls with red spikes on it as it scares the hell out of people this year. Of course, NetEnt doesn’t let Halloween 2020 pass by without a new horror-themed video slot. This year the honour goes to the Dark King Forbidden Riches™ video slot which is now available at the NetEnt Casinos.
NetEnt’s Halloween slots
The past years, it became a habit from NetEnt to launch horror-themed slot right before Halloween. We saw The Wolf’s Bane™ video slot launched last year and 2018 brought Halloween Jack™ to the NetEnt Casinos. Of course, players already had a good choice of Halloween slots with Blood Sucker™, Blood Sucker 2™, and more. As a desktop game, but also as a NetEnt Touch® game.
Each Halloween slot created by NetEnt brings a bit of horror to the reels. More often do we see a bloodsucker, but also ghosts, skulls, a full moon, black cats, and so on. This year, you meet the Dark King! He’ll be waiting for you next to the reel while the horror mood is set by a horror soundtrack as well that can be experienced as euphoric.
The strong part in the Dark King Forbidden Riches™ video slot is the cross during Free Spins. Obviously, NetEnt did a great job when it comes to the graphics. Therefore, this new horror slot is perfect to get into the Halloween mood. However, it’s great to play through the year, full moon or not. This is thanks to the great gameplay which includes Free Spins, Sticky Wild Hotspots, and Sticky Wild Symbols.
Dark King Forbidden Riches™ video slot features
As mentioned before, it’s the Free Spins feature you’re looking out for. This is video slot feature will make your slot heart beat faster when the cross spreads itself over three reels. It’ll take possession of 5 immensely powerful hotspots on reels 2, 3 and 4. The spots are better known as Sticky Wild Hotspots. The fact that these spots can create Sticky Wilds is exactly what makes the Dark King Forbidden Riches™ video slot worth playing.
We’ve seen Sticky Wilds in games such as Creature of the Black Lagoon™, Stickers™, Red Riding Hood™, and Lucky Angler™. However, it’s mainly Dead or Alive™ that caused the Sticky Wild to become popular.
Now the Sticky Wild is back in the Dark King Forbidden Riches™ to substitute for any other symbol. But more important, to remain there for the rest of the Free Spins feature. It’s the cross that’ll turn a standard Wild into a Sticky Wild in the first place.
To get to the Free Spins feature, you need 3 or more Scatters:
3 Scatters= 10 Free Spins
4 Scatters= 12 Free Spins
5 Scatters= 15 Free Spins
What other features is Dark King Forbidden Riches™ offering?
While this dark-themed slot brings an exciting Free Spins feature with a high win potential, it’s not only the Free Spins feature that offers a Wild symbol. They also appear anywhere on the reels in the main while wins can be multiplied by a Wild Multiplier.
This Wild Multiplier is equal to the number of Wild symbols on the reels. That means that if three Wilds appear, a x3 Multiplier activates. The maximum Wild Multiplier is x5 in both the main game and during Free Spins.
