Dark King: Forbidden Riches uses 20 lines on 5 reels each 3 symbols high. It uses a a fantasy theme.
The game also comes with wild and scatter symbols on all reels.
The game features wild symbols on all reels. These wild symbols also increase the multiplier depending on how much wild symbols appear on the reels.
2, 3, 4 or 5 wild symbols on-screen will award a x2, x3, x4 and a maximum of x5 respectively.
Getting 3, 4 or 5 scatter symbols will award 10, 12 or 15 free spins respectively.
During free spins a special Hot Spot pattern will be added in the form of a cross on reels 2, 3 and 4.
Wild symbols landing in this hot spot will award 1 extra free spins and become sticky wilds until the end of the free spins feature.
Of course the Wild Multiplier will also stay active, so during free spins it’s easier to collect a couple of wilds to increase that multiplier.
Scatter symbols don’t appear during free spins.
Dark King: Forbidden Riches comes with a pretty dark fantasy theme. I think there are groups that love that and groups that hate that. I like it. I am happy that it’s not a theme that’s been used over and over again. And this feels new.
The gameplay during base game is OK, you can get some decent wins if you collect enough wild symbols. But it’s the free spins feature that you want.
During those free spins the bonuses double up, you will get those sticky wilds on top of those multipliers, so during free spins you are able to get wins of 2000 times your bet theoretically. Most of the time though wins vary between 100 and 300 times bet.
The free spins feature feels a bit like Lucky Angler, A Snowy Catch, which is an older NetEnt game which is no longer available. Except this new game offers multipliers, which the other game didn’t.
I think Dark King: Forbidden Riches is a fine game and I do enjoy it. It’s not a game that really makes a big impression and I am not sure it will be popular in a year time, but I do suggest giving it a try. Play Dark King: Forbidden Riches at any top NetEnt casino.
