In order to get in the big wins from this slot, you will need to keep a lookout for the Wild Multiplier feature. The wild symbol of the game is the blue orb and while it functions as a traditional wild by replacing all regular symbols, it also has some other functions.

This magical blue orb will bring a multiplier into play when more than 1 lands on the reels. The value of the multiplier you receive will be equal to the number of wilds on the reel set. This feature can be triggered both in the main game as well as the Free Spins feature.

  • 2 wilds – x2 multiplier
  • 3 wilds – x3 multiplier
  • 4 wilds – x4 multiplier
  • 5 wilds – x5 multiplier

Special Features

Free Spins feature

In addition to the wilds, which play a big role in this game, there is also the Free Spins feature. Trigger this by landing 3 or more scatters on the same spin. For 3, 4 or 5 scatters you will receive 10, 12 or 15 free spins respectively. Wilds will also play a role in the feature. During the free spins, you will be seeing a number of symbols on the reels 2, 3 and 4 that are highlighted, this is called the Hotspot Zone.

When you land a wild in this Hotspot Zone, it will be transformed into a sticky wild which means that position will remain wild for the rest of the free spins. For each sticky wild landing on the reels, you will also see 1 more free spin added to your total.

Look and Feel of Dark King: Forbidden Riches

There is no doubt that this is a dark and gloomy slot from beginning to end. Once the game has loaded you will find yourself in the lair of the Dark King himself, looking like a dungeon of some sorts. On the left side of the reel set, you will see the Dark King standing with his sword in hand while on the other side there is a wall of skulls, perhaps a collection of his previous victims. Gargoyles, burning candles and even more skulls also surround the reel set.

The symbols of the game consist of a bunch of low value symbols, being the classic 10 to A symbols designed in a medieval style. In addition to these, you will also see 5 different skeleton warriors with the Dark King himself being of highest value of course.
