Dark Vortex

All fantasy horror fans need to have a spin with Dark Vortex! There may be no dungeons or dragons here but Yggdrasil Gaming has given every plucky player the chance to win big with some amazing spins. Get sucked into the Vortex today at Rocket Slots!


We can expect an Yggdrasil game to have detail everywhere and this certainly does not disappoint. The various monsters featured on the symbols have all been wonderfully designed while the reels themselves are housed in a peculiar stone structure covered in demonic carvings.

Of the symbols, each monster featured makes a high paying symbol and it has its own low-paying symbol in the form of a book elsewhere on the reels. There is a green slime monster, a light blue Beholder-type creature, a dark blue and toothy beast, a flaming female demon, a purple tentacle creature. Their respective books all resemble them in some way.

The game also features a number of scatters. The scatter which appears in the regular base game is the Vortex symbol. In the free spins, there is a golden free spins scatter and two orb scatters with their own benefits; one in pink and one in blue.

How to Play

Everything you need to tackle Dark Vortex can be found underneath the reels. In the centre, the purple buttons are the spin, autospin, and max bet; 3 important buttons to help you remain in full control of the game. If you are wanting to play with a smaller bet, you can use the plus or minus keys on the left to select the exact level you want.

Clicking the plus button on the very left of the game screen will open up a small menu with some settings and the paytable. Head here if you want more information about the win conditions or special features.

Game Features

The standout feature of Dark Vortex is the Vortex itself. Activated when you land 2 or more adjacent Vortex symbols, watch as the existing symbols are wrenched away into the Vortex to make room for new reels. You then have 3 Vortex Spins to try to earn as much as you can and expand the Vortex. Expansion takes place when you land another Vortex symbol in the reel adjacent to the Vortex. If you manage to expand the Vortex to cover all the reels, you will unlock some free spins!

The free spins also feature stacked Wilds and the chance for you to earn some big wins. You can see counters to either side of the reels which detail how many spins you have and how many Stacked Wilds you have. The pink orbs let you know how many Stacked Wilds are while the blue orbs are the spins.

If you don’t want to wait for the free spins to land, you can also buy yourself a ticket in. Just hit the buy bonus button on the left and play the random chance game to determine how many pink and blue orbs you receive before you play.

We loved playing Dark Vortex and we think it is the perfect game to fall into. If you are searching for an unusually themed game with some fantastic spin mechanics, you should definitely give this a go!
