Tales of Darkness: Break of Dawn is powered by Novomatic and has 5 reels and 50 to 100 fixed paylines. Playable from 50p to £100 a spin on all devices, you are taken to the realm of the undead. It comes with a Free Games feature where the Break of Dawn Bonus feature comes into play and gives you moving wild reels as well as 100 paylines.
Visually, Tales of Darkness: Break of Dawn looks fantastic – set in the realm of the undead, it has a mystical feel to it and is set against a graveyard. Set at night-time, symbols on the reels include A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9 royals as well as 3 different coloured chandeliers and black horses – the latter is the most rewarding symbol giving you just 3 times your stake.
Tales of Darkness: Break of Dawn comes with a caped wild which substitutes for all symbols bar the scatter. There’s also male and female vampire wilds which replace all symbols bar the scatter.
The scatter is the moon and bats symbol with 3, 4 or 5 giving you 1, 5 or 20 times your stake as well as triggering the Free Games feature with 15 free spins. The Break of Dawn Bonus feature then comes into play. You’ve got the combined male and female vampire wild symbol that only appears on the middle reel (reel 3). It then splits and moves along in both directions during the next 2 free spins – you’ll also get 2 additional free spins.
The male vampire or female vampire symbol can also appear on reel 3 which then spread to cover the whole reel and moves along in 1 direction to neighbouring reel positions on the next 2 free spins. The male vampire wild moves to the right with the female vampire symbol to the left – you’ll also get 2 more free spins. Furthermore, the number of paylines doubles to 100 and you can land more scatters to win even more free spins.
Variance wise, Tales of Darkness: Break of Dawn is high but only has a top payout of 1,500 times your stake if you manage to fill the reels with horses and wilds in the Free Games feature (with 100 paylines). I really like the Tales of Darkness series from Novomatic and Tales of Darkness: Break of Dawn is another good addition – I do recommend you try Tales of Darkness: Lunar Eclipse which is just as good.
