With summer being over and Halloween approaching, Microgaming is preparing for a festive season. Another amazing slot is coming our way by this top tier provider and this time with an interesting fairytale theme where nothing is what it seems at first sight.

Created by Microgaming’s own Triple Edge Studios, Wicked Tales: Dark Red will make every day feel like Halloween adding more mystery and wins to your gameplay.

Wicked Tales: Dark Red

After a string of thrilling slot releases like Poke the Guy, Fortunium, Robin of Sherwood and Cashoccino, Microgaming has prepared few titles to warm us up for fall including Sidewinder, Rainbrew and Exotic Cats.

But what caught out attention the most is Wicked Tales: Dark Red based on a traditional fairy-tale of Red Riding Hood but with a few quirks to make it appealing to adult audience. Expect a gorgeous female character dressed in red, fighting her fearsome foe, the wolf in the imaginary forest of Ravenmire.

This 5-reel, 25-payline video slot can be played on all devices starting from €0.25, and the maximum bet is kept at €200, making it suitable for high rollers. Immerse yourself in the world of wolves, red candles, gold coins, pendants and flame-torch bearing man while a sexy hooded femme fatale is the most lucrative symbol giving players 80 times their stake for five of the kind.

Dark Red logo is the Wild and replaces all symbols except the Scatter. The slot has Wandering Reels feature with jumbo blocks of the same symbols for even higher chances of winning.

Wolf’s Bonus Wheel Feature

When three Full Moon scatters appear on the reels, Wolf’s Wheel Bonus feature is triggered.

Once you enter this feature, you are guaranteed to trigger another one. You spin the wheel where you can win cash prizes of up to 20 times your stake. But if you land on the Treasure Chest, you get to play the Forest of Fortunes Pick Bonus feature.

In this feature, you make picks for even more cash prizes and here the multiplier increases after each prize. The feature also has a stopper which ends the feature but also immunities to stop the feature ending.  The feature can bring you huge prizes especially if you have a 10x multiplier applied.

Landing on any of the high value symbols will trigger the respective Free Spins feature with 9 free spins. So if you land on the girl in red, all high value symbol in the Free Spins feature will be replaced by her and the chance for making winning combination drastically increases.

You could end up winning 5,000x you stake. Not bad for a bedtime story.
