Microgaming’s A Dark Matter Slot Review

A Dark Matter is a 5 reel, 5 payline slot from Microgaming and has a Victorian mystery theme. Available to play on all devices from 5p to £50 per spin, it comes with Invading Wilds which can lead to a block of 3 wild reels. This also applies in the Free Spins feature where you will get a 2x multiplier and lots of extra free spins.

A Dark Matter Theme/Symbols

Visually, A Dark Matter is superb – set in Stonehurst (a small English town), unexplained disappearances have led Wraith Manor to the outskirts of town. It’s all very dark and eerie. Symbols include A, K, Q, J and 10 royals – you’ll also see a few characters on the reels.

The moustached Lord of the Manor is the most rewarding with 5 on a payline giving you 240 times your stake. The A Dark Matter logo is the wild which substitutes for all symbols for all symbols bar the scatter – it appears on the 3 middle reels only and appears stacked.

Invading Wilds feature

When a full wild stack appears on reels 2 or 4, it will invade an adjacent reel and turn it wild. A full wild stack on reels 2 and 4 will turn reel 3 fully wild – this is known as the Invading Wilds feature.

Free Spins feature

The main attraction is the Free Spins feature – this is played when you get 3 scatters on reels 2, 3 and 4. The doors to Wraith Manor and opened and you’ll begin with 12 free spins. Any scatter symbol landing during the feature will reward you with 1 extra free spin – with no limits. To help you win more, wilds are super stacked on both reels 2 and 4. There’s also a 2x multiplier applied to all wins.

2,400 x stake wins

A Dark Matter is beautifully designed and has good bonus features. Highly volatile, you can win up to 1,200 times your stake on each base game spin. With the 2x multiplier in the Free Spins feature, you can pocket a cool 2,400 times your stake on each free spin.

Overall, a very good slot from Microgaming in my opinion – looks great and has good win potential in both the base game and Free Spins feature. If you like high variance slots from Microgaming, Immortal Romance cannot be topped in my opinion.
