You may think you're familiar with the classic story - but after a few minutes of playing Triple Edge Studios' latest release, you'll quickly realize that you haven't seen anything yet. Wicked Tales: Dark Red is a game that instantly transports you to a world filled with magic, danger, excitement and one of the most fun slot games to come along in quite some time.
Every spin of this 5 reel, 25 bet line game gives you a chance to score up to three bonus symbols. Should the Wolf's Wheel Bonus symbol ultimately reveal itself, you'll get not one but FOUR free spins and will also have an opportunity to enter the incredibly wealthy Forest of Fortunes.
But that's not all - with a backdrop filled with plentiful wins, magical encounters and the impressive nightmare that is the Wandering Werewolf, you'll soon come to find that Wicked Tales is a journey well worth taking.
The centrepiece of the game - the Wandering Reels - are made up of a group of three visually distinct reels that all spin together. They contain Jumbo Blocks, which are distinctively large "high" symbols that span all three of the reels. "High" symbols on the Wolf's Wheel will trigger nine free spins and all lines are determined by the Wandering Reels.
On each Base Game spin, the position of the reels is chosen randomly. The starting position in Free Spins will typically be the same position from the Base Game when that feature was triggered. During the Free Spins portion, all of the reels shift to each position in order from left-to-right - giving you more opportunities to win than ever before.
The feature that will really keep players coming back for more is no doubt the Wolf's Wheel Bonus, which itself is triggered by three bonus symbols. Each cash prize then multiplies by the bet staked up to 20 times depending on the situation.
During the Wolf's Wheel Bonus, if you see the Treasure Chest symbol, this will lead to the Forest of Fortunes Pick Bonus. Landing on any of the "High" symbols during this period will trigger a series of up to nine additional free spins. Players can then collect ALL cash prizes until either the Forest of Fortunes or the Free Spins is won.
But that's certainly not all. During the Forest of Fortunes Pick Bonus, the player picks to reveal cash prizes, which are also combined with the aforementioned multiplier! That multiplier will increase by one after a cash prize is revealed and finding all ten cash prizes ends the Pick Bonus.
With a visually distinct design that instantly offers a unique experience among popular modern day slot games, as well as a huge number of chances to win cash prizes, its truly easy to see why Wicked Tales: Dark Red has become so popular in such a short amount of time.
