Dark King: Forbidden Riches Slot Review

Put on your armor and get ready to search through the dark valleys and mysterious forests to uncover the forbidden riches your king wants so much. Will you return with what you find or keep the treasure for yourself? Spin the reels and let’s find out!

The game takes place in an atmospheric hall, at the left of which you can see the dark king himself, yielding his razor-sharp sword, while at the right you can make out a wall built with human skulls. The reels are placed in the center of the interface, with a small row of multiplier indicators found below them.

As for the mechanics, the game mostly works like other slots. That is, the reels start spinning altogether and come to stop individually in consecutive order, with the winning symbols becoming animated and triggering a short audio effect.

The closest game theme-wise we could think of is Robin Hood Shifting Riches also provided by NetEnt but featuring a different art style. Still, a fairly good game if you’re looking for more knight-themed stuff. Now, let’s take a look at how the game looks and works.

How to Play Dark King: Forbidden Riches

The game has 3 rows and 5 reels with 20 fixed paylines. Players can use the controls located below the reels to adjust the bet size, enable the autoplay or quickspin features, check the paytable, or simply spin. Further customization options are accessible through the in-game menu.

Bets start as low as $0.20 and go up to $400 per spin which is significantly high for a NetEnt slot. Dark King: Forbidden Riches is a medium volatility slot with a 96.06% RTP meaning that your chances of getting small and larger wins are somewhat equal. That said, the most you can win in this game is 2,500x your bet size so there is potential for a million-dollar win!

Symbols-wise, the game features 5 low paying and 5 high paying symbols. The first are represented by card values 10-A while the latter come in the form of a skeleton rider, a plague doctor, a chain-yielding knight, a two-horned knight, and the dark king.

The slot’s special symbols are:

  • Wild – Represented by a blue orb, the wild symbol substitutes for all other symbols except for the scatter.
  • Scatter – Represented by a red gemstone, 3 or more of these trigger the free spins feature.

Game Rules

Dark King: Forbidden Riches Features

The game has a medium variance factor and the max win available on the main game are good enough for it to be considered great just from the vanilla experience. However, the game does offer some pretty intuitive features so without further ado, let’s check them out.

Wild Symbol and Wild Multiplier

When 1 or more wild symbols appear anywhere on the reels during a spin in the main game or the free spins, all wins are multiplied by a wild multiplier equal to the number of wild symbols on the reels. The minimum multiplier is 1x and can increase up to a maximum of 5x.

Free Spins

Getting 3, 4, or 5 scatter symbols will activate the feature awarding 10, 12, or 15 free spins accordingly. During the free spins, a 5-spot cross outline will be placed on top of the reels. 

Any wild symbols that land anywhere in that area will transform into a sticky wild symbol. This also awards an additional free spin and remains on the reels until the end of the feature.

The total wild multiplier during the feature is equal to the number of simultaneously appearing wild and sticky wild symbols on the reels.
