Dare you open the Dark Vortex mobile slot machine and let loose the demons within these five reels that promise big wins, but also big danger?
Dark Vortex is a video slot with 5 reels and 3 rows full of dark symbols and demons out of the imagination of Lovecraft. If you are after some Halloween spins, this is certainly a good place to start, with sounds and animations to match the creepy yet (strangely enough) light monster theme.
This is a Win all Ways game, which starts with 243 ways to win, but unlocks up to 3,125 ways to win during the free spins. It’s not for slot beginners and it’s not simple – if that’s what you are after, maybe Halloween Jack by NetEnt is more your style.
For a 243 ways to win video slot, this Dark Vortex game has a low minimum bet of only 0.10 a spin, going all the way up to 50 a spin.
The reason we mention it is because you’ll want to balance that budget carefully as this game as, much like it’s predecessor the Wolf Hunters slot, it can take its sweet time to get started.
That’s because you need to trigger the Vortex, and increase the size of the reels from 3 to 5 rows, to get any momentum going. Then you need to collect symbols within these mini vortexes to have half a chance of getting any decent payouts from the bonus games.
If you are wondering why you should play this mobile slot gane, that statement right there is probably the one reason you need to play Dark Vortex on mobile or online.
It’s an incredible amount, and when you do hit the free spins bonus games, certainly feels possible as you get up to 10 high stacks of wilds added to what is now 3,125 ways to win online slot.
Add that these five reels pay from left to right and right to left, and you’ll be amazed by what these demons will happily give you in return for your patience in letting them loose in this world. Certainly, more than you’ll ever find on Berryburst Max slot game by NetEnt.
It’s not an easy journey, but then again what is?

We should probably add a word of warning to anyone wanting to play this Dark Vortex slot game which is that you can buy the free spin bonus feature for 80 times your bet.
We've only hit that much once, most of the time a lot less, so we would stick with doing it the hard way and waiting for that Vortex to open using hard work and hard spins.
And yeah, something this Yggdrasil machine can feel like hard work, but it's got some serious rewards for anyone willing to pay the toll to Cthulhu or whatever monster is lurking behind these fantastical reels.
If you're not sure you are ready to tackle such a beast of a casino game, we'd perhaps recommend you start on an easier journey - the Orient Express phone slot perhaps? You'll still experience the wonders of this gaming studio, but perhaps with all the dark dangerous edges.
