Some slots are far more atmospheric than others. We’d count Wicked Tales: Dark Red among that group, thanks to the forest setting, the cottage with smoke coming from the chimney, and the feeling of unease it sets into your mind.
Does that make Wicked Tales: Dark Red a game to be avoided? Not so – very much the opposite, in fact. Check our review of this new Microgaming title to discover more. If you’re brave enough.
There are five reels here, but they look different to how you might expect. There are three icons on reels one and two, while we get four icons on the remaining three. Despite this, we will see just 25 lines in action in this game.
A quarter is good enough to get you started here. This Little Red Riding Hood-themed slots also features a huge $200 as the top bet amount available.
Can you spot the Dark Red message on an icon? If so, you have seen the wild in play. Only the moon, coming into play here as a scatter symbol, cannot be replaced by the Dark Red logo.
It does, and we think it is an appealing one. Your task here is to find three of those moon scatters in a spin of the reels in the base game. If you manage this, you’ll see a Wheel of Fortune in front of you – a wheel you are invited to spin. Cash prizes and features are available here. If you do not land on a feature at the first spin, you continue until you do.
The first possibility is the Forest of Fortunes bonus. You will see several bags and you must try and find cash prizes. Discover an ax and you’ll get another life and a chance to continue picking. Evade the wolf if you can, as it ends the feature.
The second possibility is to win nine free games. This is achieved by finding a high-value icon on the Wheel of Fortune. That icon then stands in for all the high-value icons during those spins.
There’s a lot to thank Microgaming for if you play this game. It’s certainly not a wicked title to play!
