Victorian murder mystery slots are commonplace across the internet, but not all of them are worth their salt. When a good, fun and impressive one does appear, it takes quite a bit of beating. Microgaming’s A Dark Matter fits the bill and sets the bar incredibly high for other games to follow.
A Dark Matter has an air of Cluedo about it, but also Agatha Christie and other murder mystery inspirations. The game looks the business and comes with a handful of nifty features, even if its payline structure is surprisingly minimalistic.
Just 5 Lines to Bet On
There are just 5 paylines for players to wager money on in the Dark Matter slot. On the upside, this will keep the cost of stakes down, with bets costing anything from 0.05 per spin and no more than 50.00 a spin. With a spot of luck, players will be able to bag as much as 1,200x their total bet with a successful spin on A Dark Matter.
Features Are Included
Despite the lack of paylines, there are a handful of special features you can take advantage of. For starters, there is a wild symbol which appears as the game’s title logo. On top of that, it can appear stacked on the three central reels.
Whenever a stack of wilds appears on the second or fourth reel, it will trigger an Invading Wilds bonus. This can see wilds spread to the next adjacent reel. You could end up with all three central reels acting as wilds with this bonus.
A free spin round is also present. This occurs when scatters pop up on the three central reels. In this round, a total of 12 spins are dished out, with extra spins awarded when scatters appear. Wilds appear super stacked on the second and fourth reels of the round, while a 2x multiplier will double whatever you win in the feature.
A Dark Matter Is Now Playable Online
A Dark Matter was released earlier this month and should now be available to play at all leading casinos known to dish out Microgaming slots. Keep an eye out for it at casino sites which run Microgaming’s Quickfire platform, too, and it is very likely to appear at those sites to boot. If you like murder mystery games, A Dark Matter could very well be for you.
