This Tales of Darkness mobile slot comes with 6 reels and 10 paylines full of dark magic and lots of sexy Vampire seductions.
The full title is the Tales of Darkness Lunar Eclipse slot machine, but that’s a mouthful, so let’s call it by its proper name; Tales of Darkness by Novomatic.
And it’s well named, with the mistress of Darkness and her jewels littering the reels as the high paying symbols and Ace to 10 symbols as the low paying ones.
The slot’s theme isn’t particularly grandiose or even as good as Blood Suckers 2 by NetEnt. But it has a lovely charm, even if the sounds lack drama.
6 reel video slot has both an advantage and a problem. The advantage is that you have even more chances at bigger wins because you have 6 of a kind symbol wins – like the Book of Ra Deluxe 6 slot.
On the other hand, it can mean that getting those bigger wins is even harder to hit because if getting a 5 of a kind win is hard enough in any gambling fruit machine, 6 of a kind always feel a little out of reach.
And they are, mostly. Especially as you only get one or two wild symbols at any one point during the base game.
If the base game can be a little slow and frustrating, the Lunar Eclypse free spins go into overdrive, mostly thanks to the fact that one of the symbols will randomly be chosen to appear stacked on reels 2 and 5.
Why is that special? Because these symbols now expand to the left and to the right. So land a stack of symbols on reels 2, and you’ll get stacks of symbols on reel 1 and 3.
Plus, these symbols now pay from left to right AND from right to left. So you almost get a pay both way reel slot machine.
Almost, but not quite. That’s the problem with this Tale of Darkness slot game. You get a lot of almost, but not quite big enough wins.
Still, get one of the high paying symbols as the high paying one, and you might start playing this over the Book of Ra Deluxe 6 game.

Wild Scatters: The Scatter is also the wild symbol. When it shows up it will be used to replace all other symbols to create a win on any of the 10 pay lines.
It also triggers the bonus games.
Lunar Eclipse Bonus: 3 Scatter symbols trigger 10 free spins. One random symbol will be chosen as the 'special symbols' and appear stacked on reels 2 and 5.
This special symbol expands horizontally on all adjacent positions and will also now pay left to right AND right to left - except for 6 of a kind which only pays once.
Gamble Feature: After any win, you can choose to gamble your win and double or quadruple it by choosing the right scenario.
The Tales of Darkness slot machine is one of those Novomatic games that promises big wins but doesn't always deliver.
Mostly because the free games take a while to trigger and are your one big chance to get the really big wins.
Even then, you better hope you have one of the high paying symbols because otherwise even this feature can suck you dry rather than shower you with jewels.
There's a lot to love about this 10 payline slot machine, but only if you have a little patience to charm this seductive vampire.
