Head to a haunted house and visit the Lord of Darkness in this 5 reel, 25 payline, horror-themed slot from Stake Logic. Featuring excellent visuals and a deliciously creepy backing track, it comes with a free spins round that awards up to 25 free spins (initially) with stacked wilds reels. Play, on all devices, from between 25p and £50 per spin.

The design in Lord of Darkness is excellent – the grounds of a dark and dingy haunted house form the backdrop to the reels. Those reels are watched over by male and female characters who turn into animated werewolves and vampires.

The same top end visuals are on display on the reels themselves. The lower value playing cards are embellished with splatters of blood, axes and skulls. They’re joined by gravestones, bottles of red and green potions, male and female characters and a devil. Land 3, 4 or 5 of the devil for a payout of 250, 500 or 2,500 coins.

There’s also a wild that replaces all other symbols apart the scatter. There is also a Random Extra Wild feature which is triggered randomly. Basically, additional wilds can land on any spin. When triggered, the man turns into a werewolf and the woman into a vampire – both of these new symbols are wilds are can appear on any of the 5 reels.

The flaming coffin is the scatter – land 3 or more of these on the same spin to trigger the Free Spins Bonus feature. 3 or 4 scatters will get you 8, 10 or 15 free spins. Land 5 scatters and you’ll be awarded 8, 10, 15 or 25 free spins. These free spins are played out on a new set of reels with fewer symbols on show.

The Lord of Darkness is wild here – it expands to fill the whole the reel. It can land on multiple reels on the same free spin to offer some fine winning opportunities. The top award remains at 2,500 coins per payline if you land 5 of the man or woman in combination. Look out too for the Free Spins Bonus symbol during the feature – every time 1 of these lands anywhere on the reels, it will add 1 more free spin to your total.

We very much enjoyed Lord of Darkness – it’s 1 of the best-looking slots we’ve seen, especially within the horror genre. The art design is from the top drawer and the soundtrack is a perfect addition. The range of features isn’t wide but the free spins round is a good one thanks to the stacked wilds.

Get lucky with those and the Lord of Darkness can serve up come devilishly hot action – with over 816 times your stake on each spin. I also recommend you try Football Gladiators by Stake Logic which is their flagship title.
