A fairytale with a twist

Microgaming recently released Wicked Tales: Dark Red slot which can be played on all desktop, tablet and mobile devices. The slot has an interesting theme where not everything in the fairytale is what it seems. The best part is that it can make every day feel like Halloween adding more mystery and wins to your gameplay.

Wicked Tales: Dark Red is a 5 reels and 25 paylines video slot created by Microgaming’s own Triple Edge Studios. The game comes with heaps of fun bonus features and a chance to win up to 5,000 times your stake. You can take a spin from as little as 0.25 to a maximum of 200. The game is based on the tale of red riding hood but features a sexy hooded femme fatale that breaks away from the red riding hood you used to know.

As always you can expect amazing graphics and a very fitting soundtrack that enhances the mood. The slot is set in the forests of Ravenmire and you’ll find symbols of red candles, gold coins, pendants, wolves and of course men with flame torches.

One thing that immediately captures your attention in this slot is the unusual reel layout. If you’re wondering why it’s because of the wandering reels setup. Basically groups of 3 reels spin together and the Wandering Reels stop in 1 of 3 positions namely the first, middle or last 3 reels.

Bonus features to expect

The wild of the slot is the Dark Red logo and it substitutes for all other symbols on the reels apart from the scatter. Landing five of these on a payline could result in a win of up to 80 times your stake.

The slot has a Wolf’s Wheel Bonus feature which is triggered when three or more of the full moon scatters appear on the reels. With this feature you get to spin the wheel which can award you cash prizes of up to 20 times your stake. Landing on a treasure chest could unlock the Forest of Fortunes Pick Bonus where your picks lead to even more cash prizes. With each prize you find the multiplier will increase by 1. The feature stops when you find a stopper or you’ve found 10 prizes.

Of course there are also free spins which can be triggered if you land on any of the high symbols on the wheel. You will get 9 free spins during which even bigger wins become possible especially if Red Riding Hood is your symbol. She will replace all other high value symbols on the reels during this feature.

Make sure you are among the first to play Wicked Tales: Dark Red at any of the top Microgaming online casinos.
