The latest game created by developer Microgaming is based on a cautionary story that teaches children not to talk to strangers; Dark Red Slots is a 5-reel, 25-payline slot with a wide ranging betting system and multiple bonus features that many players will enjoy. The win potential for this title is considerable with Wandering Reels and a paying scatter that can trigger one of two bonus games that can both be quite lucrative.
While slot spinners will not find Grandma on the reels of this slot, they will see Red, the Wolf and the Woodsman. Bettors will also find pocket watch, Bag of Gold and Candle with Parchment symbols on the reels. The game uses only a small playing card system for the lower paying symbols with just A, K. Q and J. The Dark Red symbol is wild and can replace any of the other symbols in the game except the Full Moon Scatter that triggers the bonus features in this slot. Players should also be on the lookout for the wolf and axe symbols during the bonus rounds, as they can have a considerable effect on the bonus rounds.
This title has 25 paylines and bettors can choose to wager up to eight coins on each of the title’s 25 playlines. Coin sizes range from $0.01 to $1, giving the slot a maximum wager of $200 per spin; this is more than enough for all but the largest bettors. No matter the size of the wager, Dark Red is a great value pick with multiple bonus features. Slot spinners get a great game with a lot of potential with Dark Red Slots.
At first glance, it appears that Dark Red Slots has a single bonus feature that is triggered by the Full Moon symbol but this scatter hold much more potential than most symbols. The three scatter symbols on a single spin trigger the Wolf Wheel bonus game, where the player can collect cash prizes until one of the two main bonus features of Dark Red is triggered. When a player is awarded free spins or the Forest of Fortune Pick bonus game, the bettor advances into the second half of bonus play. The Forest of Fortune bonus game allows the player to choose from a group of bags; most have a cash prize but there can also be an axe or wolf symbol. The round ends when 10 bags have been opened or the wolf symbol appears, unless the bettor has received an axe in a previous bag.
The game also features the intriguing Wandering Reels feature that creates 3X3 giant symbol that can fall on the left side of the playing area or in the center or on the right side of the 5-reel play area. This feature can quickly make Dark Red a lucrative betting wager, especially if the Wandering Reel falls on the left side of the play area. Dark Red Slots is a well-developed game with gorgeous animations, multiple bonus features and great potential for a big win on every spin of the reels.
