Microgaming ventures on a mysterious quest in A Dark Matter, developed exclusively by Slingshot Studios.
A growing sense of dread has fallen over the quaint English town of Stonehurst after a series of unexplained disappearances plague the once sleepy village. Might these events have something to do with the eerie Wraith Manor?
Uncover the mysteries of A Dark Matter in this five-reel, high-volatility slot featuring Invading Wilds™, bidirectional paylines and an enigmatic cast of characters.
Players join Nathan Highmore, Scotland Yard’s paranormal investigator, as he searches the reels for the Manor’s secrets. Set to a ghostly original score, the game begins its tale at the gates of Wraith Manor, a home shrouded in mystery and menace.
Invading Wilds unleash their supernatural power as they land on reels two or four, spreading to adjacent reels to create a substantial block of six wilds. When stacked wilds land on reels two and four during the same spin, they combine to invade the middle reel, creating a block of nine wilds with extensive win potential.
A Dark Matter’s thrilling free spins are triggered when three doorknocker scatter symbols are uncovered in the base game, granting entrance to the Manor’s lounge and awarding an initial 12 free spins. Players are awarded one extra spin for each additional scatter symbol landing during the feature. The haunting score intensifies in intrigue and excitement when Invading Wilds encase the three middle reels, unearthing a 2x multiplier and incredible win potential.
