Dark Vortex online slot is all about the dark forces of the universe which have, for some reason, decided to take on living forms of demons and ugly creatures and invade Earth. Whatever may be lurking around the corner, you can bring all the top features from the shadows and into the light. Letting the demons loose will only make the gameplay all the more suspenseful and every spin more thrilling. The key is to unlock as many ways to win as possible and win up to 7,000 times your bet. This Yggdrasil slot RTP ranges from 96.5% to 97%.
Entering the Dark Vortex, you will find yourself in a strange cave with a stone gateway covered in symbols. There are 5 columns and 3 rows of symbols and the game starts with 243 winning lines, or better said, ways to win. Here, the developer does not offer paylines. Instead, each combination of three or more adjacent symbols issues a payout. Low-paying symbols are ancient books of spells, whereas the high-paying symbols are strange beasts and monsters – a red demon, a purple imp, a green spirit-like creature, a monster with a Medusa-like head and some sort of a zombie dog.
Pink Orbs and Blue Orbs are special symbols which influence the number of free spins in the bonus round and the size of the stacked Wilds. As for base gameplay, the bettors are to adjust the coin value and by doing so they will set the cash bet for each spin. The bet range goes from ₹10 to ₹5,000. Added features include Autoplay and Max Bet.
To open the vortex, you need to collect Vortex Relics symbols. Every time at least two of them land on adjacent reels you will open the gates to the darkness, start the Vortex Reels feature and get 3 Vortex spins. Additional perks are awarded with Pink and Blue Orbs which expand the size of Wild Stacks and appear only on reels 1 and 5 (Pink Orb) and increase the free spins number for the Free Spins feature by appearing on the three middle reels (Blue Orb).
Covering all the reels with extra Vortex Relics symbols you will activate the Free Spins mode and you will get to play with 3,125 ways to win. As explained, the number of freebies and the size of the stacked Wilds added to the reels will be determined by the previously awarded Pink and Blue Orbs. As it won’t be easy to trigger the Free Spins feature, the game allows for the bonus to be bought. Players can pay the price and play a mini-game to determine the size of the stacked Wilds and the number of free spins.
Indian casino players who tend to scare easily might want to look for a different kind of slot. Dark Vortex is suitable during Halloween season and all year round for players who are horror fans. There are bonuses aplenty, from free spins to stacked Wilds and more ways to win that one can count. The design, although scary, is brilliant, and the game looks just as terrifying on mobile screens. You can step into the vortex of darkness to test your luck, or gamble a few rupees more to experience the Free Spins feature without waiting for more monster to come after you, it’s your choice.
