How to Play

Reminding us of the spooky intro of NetEnt’s epic Dracula slot, this title will immerse you from the very first cinematic scenes. Once you enter the manor the screen transforms into the reelset, with foggy woods looming in the background. With the mysterious scene now set you can concentrate on getting to grips with the buttons – which are super easy. The spin button is in the centre right – you can’t miss it. Above all when we play slots is easy betting interfaces, and A Dark Matter provides that with options for you to change your bets and check the in-game menu above and below the spin button. That’s all you need to then carry on exploring the Wraith Manor and meeting the various characters such as Lady Eleanor Wraith and Nathan Highmore, the protagonist who will help you discover 2,400 times your stake.


The card values 10 to Ace appear as the low value symbols but the real intrigue lies with the high payers. That’s because they’re based on the characters that help push the narrative along. Silas Brewer, Molly Perkins, Bertram Lynch, Eleanor Wraith and Nathan Highmore all appear as the main symbols, with Highmore rewarding you 600 times your stake for five of a kind. There’s also a Wild symbol which substitutes other symbols to create more wins, and a Scatter which triggers the Free Spins.


With so much mystery and intrigue going on in the manor, you’d expect a few more bonuses to help along the way. However, you do get the chance to land 2,400 times your stake on each spin, so that more than makes up for it.
