About the Game

Wicked Tales: Dark Red looks well designed and it’s intriguing to see what the developers have waiting for us with the promise of a wicked twist on a classic fairytale. Here punters will go on a quest through the Ravenmire forests. Game symbols include A, K, Q and J royals, pendants, gold coins, wolves and a man holding a flame-torch.

The main symbol is a sexy hooded femme fatale who pays the highest payout of 80x your stake when you land 5 on a payline.

  • Wild symbol - The Dark Red logo acts as the wild symbol and substitutes all the other symbols except the scatter. It pays the same value as the main character.
  • Wandering Reels feature- This feature includes a group of 3 reels that spin at the same time and stop in 1 of 3 positions namely the first 3 reels, 3 middle reels or the last 3 reels. These reels contain jumbo blocks where they display bigger versions of the symbols therefore providing higher chances of winning.

After each prize, the multiplier increases by 1 level and the feature ends once you find a stopper or find all the 10 cash prizes. You can also find ways of keeping the feature from ending. This feature can get you big prizes especially if the 10x multiplier come into play.
  • Free Spins feature- The high symbols on the wheel will help you activate the Free spins feature which starts off with 9 free spins.
