Yggdrasil Gaming‘s eerie new slot, Dark Vortex, launches in good time for operators’ Halloween campaigns today (Wednesday) and is the developer’s first slot to offer the new ‘Buy Bonus’ feature
In Dark Vortex, players aim to open a portal to the netherworld and enter a land with reward opportunity. When the Vortex is fully open, the stacked wilds and 3125 ways to win running from both left and right mean that players could win more than 7000x bet size with any spin. Players can open the Vortex either reel-by-reel in base-play or buy straight into the feature.
In base play players can open an ancient vortex with taller reels, more high pays and stacked wilds by hitting two bonus symbols on adjacent reels. Every additional adjacent bonus symbol will grow the portal and give additional Vortex spins. Expanding the Vortex to cover all reels starts Free Spins with wild stacks up to 10 symbols tall.
The new feature introduced with this game also offers a third way into Free Spins – by sacrificing 80x bet players can activate the ‘Buy Bonus’ feature and immediately enter the Free Spins round. This option is perfect for players who prefer fast-paced, high risk-high reward action instead of grinding out wins slowly within the base game.
Yggdrasil head of slots, Jonas Strandman, said Wednesday: “Our humorous take on the Lovecraftian universe is no joke – the more than 7000x max bet win is the third highest for any Yggdrasil game.
“Add to this the the innovative Vortex reels and the chance to buy straight into the Free Spins, and we’ve got a game that we know will be highly appreciated by seasoned slots spinners, while at the same time being a great gateway to the reels for new players.”
