The action is set inside the Dark King’s liar that resembles Frey’s hall room in Game of Thrones. The background shows a metal structure of warriors. There are evil creatures with a lot of ornaments and details in and around the grid. There is a knight in his armour and plenty of skulls to the left of the grid. The reels are dark green and frameless. The card royals from 10 to Ace have medieval gothic style and are in gold colour. There are 4 other evil and fierce-looking warriors as well as the faceless Dark King as the premiums.
The soundtrack is a dramatic, orchestral piece that makes the rounds more thrilling. You can land watery swirl wilds and red gem scatters. A lot of gold is used for the images, which are all made of metal structures. The free spins play with a cross-shaped highlighted in a fluorescent light blue zone. The game is dramatic and intense. Its superb graphics and soundtrack ensure immersive rounds.
Dark King: Forbidden Riches Gameplay
The pay-table includes the 10, J, Q, K and A cards at the low end, which pay from 2.50 to 5 times the stake for 5 of a kind on a pay-line. The premium symbols include 4 battle minions and their leader the Dark King. Their payouts are from 12.50 to 25 times the bet for 5 of a kind combinations. The Dark King is the most valuable symbol and it pays 1, 7.50 and 25 times the stake for 3, 4 or 5 on a line.
The swirling aqua orb is the wild and it has the same payout as the most rewarding symbol of the King. The wild substitutes for all other symbols except for the scatter. The scatter is the red gem and it triggers the free spins.
Dark King: Forbidden Riches Features / Bonuses
The path to profuse wins is led by sticky wilds and multipliers. If you are lucky enough, you can have them both at the same time.
In the base game, when you land 2 or more wilds in a spin, you activate the Wild Multiplier feature. The value of the multiplier is equal to the number of the landed wilds as follows:
2 wilds give you x2 multiplier;
3 wilds give you x3 multiplier;
4 wilds give you x4 multiplier;
5 wilds give you x5 multiplier, which is the maximal you can win from in the game;
These multipliers are active in the base game and free spins.
Getting 3, 4 or 5 red gem scatters anywhere on the reels on the same spin triggers 10, 12 or 15 Free Spins. These rounds play with a hot spot pattern inside on reels 2, 3 and 4 in the shape of a cross. This is the Hotspot Zone. When wild symbols land inside the zone during free spins, they become sticky wild symbols.
Each sticky wild symbol you get also adds +1 more free spin to the tally. The sticky wilds will remain on their places until the end of the feature. You will also win from the Multiplier Wild feature. It is active for any 2 normal wilds and sticky wilds on the reels. Its maximal value is x5 as in the base game.
During free spins, with the help of the multiplier and sticky wilds, you can win the max win per spin. Normally it is 500x stake from a full screen of Dark King symbols. This boosted with the x5 multiplier gives you 2,500 times your bet per spin.
Dark Knight: Forbidden Riches offers wins up to 2,500 times the stake. This is possible from a combination of features and the Dark Knight symbols. The rounds are in the fantasy theme with creepy graphics and soundtrack. If you like games such as Hades: Gigablox by Yggdrasil and Immortal Romance, this one is for you!
