Build by Triple Edge Studios exclusively for Microgaming operated casinos, the Wicked Tales: Dark Red slot is a collaboration product revolving around a familiar and universally loved topic. This game is basically a modern-day story of the Little Red Riding Hood, with a particularly dark twist intended to appeal to a more mature audience.
Wicked Tales: Dark Red video slot takes you to the imaginary forest of Ravenmire where a dynamic reel set of 5 with 25 paylines is divided into a 3-3-4-4-4 box. Powered by the Wandering Reels mechanics, this game will allow the four-row section to move left and right.
This game is available for not more than €0.25 per spin with wagering options going all the way to €200 to accommodate a wide playing base. It is filled with exciting features which will make most of your playing time and potentially reward you with lucrative payouts, going all the way up to 200,000 coins.SHOW MORESHOW MORESHOW LESS
A game like any other out there when it comes to the actual playing mode, Wicked Tales: Dark Red will see players lining up combinations of at least three matching symbols on a payline. When it comes to symbols, there are 10 regular ones included in the game with pendants, wolves, torch men and Red Riding Hood being the high-value denominations. Blue Moon is the Scatter, whereas the Dark Red logo is the game’s Wild, replacing any other symbols – except the Scatter – on the reels to help you create better winning combinations.
The action starts with a tap on the blue arrow spin button but before you set the reels in motion make sure to adjust your bet values and select coin size in order to optimize the gameplay. Microgaming deserves a thumbs-up for creating a dynamic game with Wicked Tales: Dark Red.
Powered by the Wondering Reels feature – first introduced in the Halloween slot – this game will have groups of 3 reels by 4 rows spinning together in one of three available positions – on the far left, in the middle and top right. Wondering Reels are also acting as a frame for jumbo blocks of symbols which are basically giant-sized versions of actual symbols, intended to boost your winning potential.
Microgaming and Triple Edge Studios created a daring title and should be complimented for having the guts to go with a familiar theme such as the Red Riding Hood. A touch of horror and nuances of the wicked spirits prevail to give players a truly unique playing experience. The abundance of special features only improves the overall appeal.
Wolf’s Wheel Bonus – is triggered once players land three Blue Moon Scatters on the reels. This particular bonus guarantees that a player will trigger a feature to benefit from. A wheel will appear for you to spin, with cash prizes going up to 20x your bet line.
Forest of Fortunes Pick Bonus – landing on the treasure chest on the Wolf’s Wheel Bonus will take you into the Forest of Fortunes pick bonus where you make additional picks – from bag, axe or wolf symbols – to win some more cash prizes. Each prize you get will increase the multiplier by one. The feature ends once you discover all 10 cash prizes – which obviously carry a 10x multiplier – or if you find a stopper before that. This feature also offers immunities that will prevent the game from stopping, which is a neat detail.
Free Spins – landing on high symbols on the wheel – Red Riding Hood, Wolf, Torch Man or a Magic Pendant – will launch a Free Spins bonus with nine complimentary rounds of the reels awarded to you. The chosen high-value symbol will replace all other symbols of high value in the Free Spins which automatically increases your chances of winning.
One could argue that Microgaming lacked vision and ideas for the autumn season but there is nothing wrong with revisiting concepts that worked so well in the past and incorporating them again in a new game.
Halloween’s Wondering Reels have been given a wicked twist at the brink of Ravenmire with giant blocks of up to 3×4 increasing your chances of winning up to mind-boggling 200,000 coins in this medium variance game.
The extra winning potential in Wicked Tales: Dark Red has been complemented by several highly exciting features such as Free Spins, Forest of Fortunes Pick Bonus, both originating from Wolf’s Wheel Bonus to keep you on the edge of your seat throughout.
