Microgaming’s A Dark Matter Video Slot Review

Take a trip to Wraith Manor, an English stately home that’s the scene of some mysterious happenings, in A Dark Matter. This Victorian era drama is played using a 5 reel, 5 payline game engine and comes with some potentially explosive extras. Look out for stacked wilds that can invade and turn an adjoining reel wild too. Trigger the feature and you’ll receive free spins with super stacked wilds and 2x multipliers. Play this high variance video slot on your computer, tablet or mobile from between 5p and £50 per spin.

There’s a dark, oppressive feel to the design here. The visuals could come straight out of a classic TV drama. With the dimly lit Wraith Manor in the background you’ll see A to 10 playing card values as well as members of the Wraith clan. The Lord of the Manor pays 240 times your bet for 5 in combination.

The wild can land on the middle 3 reels only. Land a full stack of wilds on reels 2 or 4 and they invade the adjoining reel and turn that wild too. This is called the Invading Wilds feature and applies in the Free Spins feature described below.

Landing 3 scatters on the same spin triggers the Free Spins feature. You’ll then head inside Wraith Manor where you’ll play out 12 free spins. There are even more wild opportunities on offer in this round. The wilds on reels 2 and 4 appear in super stacked formation – this can lead to the Invading Wilds feature for 3 wild reels per free spin.

You can land even bigger rewards during the feature too courtesy of a 2x multiplier which becomes live if you manage to trigger an invading wild on reel 3. A block of 9 wilds plus a doubling multiplier can really get things moving. Each time a scatter lands during the feature, 1 extra free spin is added to your total.

If you like high variance action, then you won’t be disappointed with A Dark Matter. This is a volatile, high risk, high reward video slot. There are potentially big rewards on offer with maximum payouts of 1,200 times your total bet in the base game and 2,400 times your bet in the feature (due to the potential 2x multiplier).

The design here is top class. The gameplay is pretty simple but the stacked wilds can really spice things up. That’s certainly the case in the Free Spins feature where the 2x multiplier is in play. This theme won’t be for everyone. If you like volatile gameplay and brooding, Victorian atmosphere, then it’s well worth investigating the mysteries of A Dark Matter.
