This twisted slot comes with an RTP of 97% and high-volatility. It also comes with a rather interesting feature - players can use the Buy-a-Bonus button to, well, buy a bonus that costs 80x the stake. So if you’re impatient, you can just pay your way into the free spins. And if you don’t feel like spinning those monstrous reels manually, Yggdrasil Gaming offered this slot an Autoplay feature to set a number of 10 - 1000 automatic spins.

The symbols on the reels include a series of 5 colored books along with some monsters. However, you might want to look out for the red horned beast, seeing as this is the highest-paying symbol, offering you 6 times your stake for 5 on a payline. And, of course, there’s also the Wild symbol, a slot game classic that is bound to spice your gambling experience by bringing you memorable wins.


  • Vortex Reels Feature. Another important symbol in this slot is the Vortex which opens up the Vortex Reels feature which, in turn, awards you with Vortex Spins. This game mode comes with more ways to win, more high-paying symbols and more orbs. But first, you’ll have to trigger this feature and you can do so by landing 2 Vortex Symbols on adjacent reels. 
  • Free Spins Feature. Dark Vortex couldn’t miss the free spins feature. To trigger this one, you’ll have to open up 5 Vortex reels. If you want to get more free spins, you’ll have to keep collecting orbs.
  • Expanding the Vortex Feature. You’ll get the opportunity to expand the reels and the further you expand the Vortex, the higher your win potential gets. And if you open up all 5 Vortex reels before you run out of moves, you will also trigger the free spins feature. 
  • Collect the Orbs. As we mentioned above, the orbs will award you extra free spins during that gameplay mode. They’re split by colors (pink and blue), the bonuses depending on the color and number of the orbs you’ve collected.
