October 24th, 2018 / Game Launch Press Release
Yggdrasil’s Dark Vortex is a gateway to monster wins
Dark Vortex will be game provider’s first slot to offer ‘Buy Bonus’ feature.
Yggdrasil’s eerie new slot, Dark Vortex, delivers unique features and launches just in time for operators’ Halloween campaigns.
In Dark Vortex, players aim to open a portal to the netherworld and enter a land full of monstrous wins. 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 over 7000x bet size with any spin. Players can open the Vortex either reel-by-reel in the 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 the 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 – with a simple sacrifice of 80x bet the player can activate the “Buy Bonus” feature and get straight into the Free Spins. This option is perfect for players who prefer fast-paced high risk, high reward action to grinding wins out slowly in the base game.
Yggdrasil Head of Slots, Jonas Strandman, said:
“Our humorous take on the lovecraftian universe is no joke – the over 7000x max bet win is third highest for any Yggdrasil game ever! Add to this the excitement of innovative Vortex reels and 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. The operators already seem to share this sentiment as many of our clients have chosen to run their Halloween campaigns on our seasonably suitable dark little gem. Put all that together and what we have here is the makings of a(n oc)cult classic!”
