As the month’s long-awaited holiday of pumpkins, ghouls and trick-or-treating approaches, Microgaming decides it’s time to make another grand slot premiere and presents its latest release, A Dark Matter.
Players are invited to join this eerie quest developed exclusively by Slingshot Studios and uncover the mysteries behind unexplained disappearances in a once sleepy village.
They will be accompanied by Nathan Highmore, Scotland Yard’s paranormal investigator, who is well-familiar with characters shrouded in mystery and menace.
Invading Wilds and Bidirectional Paylines
The story takes us to a quaint English town of Stonehurst, where a series of enigmatic events around the Wraith Manor had just happened, including several people gone missing.
To help them uncover the truth behind these obscure circumstances, the video slot will provide players a five-reel, high-volatility configuration, supported by a collection of unparalleled features such as Invading Wilds and bidirectional betways.
Right upon entering the gates, this thrilling investigation from Slingshot Studios is accompanied by a ghostly original score, giving players heightened feelings of suspense, excitement and anticipation.
After landing the Invading Wilds on reels two or four, Mr. Highmore will be able to unleash their supernatural powers and create a considerable block, consisted of six wilds. However, when stacked wilds land on the exact same reels during the same spin, a block of nine wilds with extensive win potential will emerge.
In addition, players can activate the free spin round when three doorknocker scatter symbols appear in the base game, providing access to the Manor’s lounge. This mode enables 12 free games, where one extra spin is awarded for each extra scatter that lands in this stage. There is also a 2x multiplier involved, when Invading Wilds encase the three middle reels.
Halloween Thrills & Chills
The two developers have already brought a couple of highly illustrated and innovative slot titles to the iGaming sector, including Cash of Kingdoms, Zombie Hoard as well as Banana Odyssey.
The independent software production company was founded in 2016, with an aim to create great design solutions and highly entertaining products just for Microgaming. Their latest arrival is available to all partner operators from Tuesday, October 22nd.
“We are very excited about A Dark Matter’s release! The entire team has invested a lot in crafting a rich world for players to enjoy. They have created something beautiful, with arresting character portrayals and a musical score as lavish as Wraith Manor itself. Our aim was to create a truly theatrical experience coupled with high-volatility gameplay, establishing enough intrigue to whet players’ appetites without revealing too much early on. We can’t wait for players to explore A Dark Matter,” said Richard Vermaak, head of studio.
Director of global operations at the privately held and Isle of Man-based technology firm commented:
“Slingshot Studios have successfully created a high volatility slot experience with an engaging storyline, intricate artwork and atmospheric sounds. The addition of Invading Wilds and bidirectional paylines offer an exciting and rewarding gameplay experience, with win potential of up to 2,400x the player’s bet during free spins.”
The company’s upcoming release, Treasures of Lion City, is developed in collaboration with Pulse 8 Gaming, creators of Relic Seekers, and it is scheduled for the next week.

I remember, back in the old days around and just after the turn of the century, when online gaming was new and novel, how microgaming software was king.

I remember, back in the old days around and just after the turn of the century, when online gaming was new and novel, how microgaming software was king. Entire online casinos had only microgaming software, there are still some of these around. But nowadays the market is so diverse there are so many new software providers and interesting new games that one could spend a lifetime or several lifetimes trying out all the games that are out there on the market. This game sounds like it could be fun and engaging, but I am anticipating the next stage in the evolution of online gaming, which I think will be three dimensional virtual reality casinos. I have heard there are one or two out there even now, but not yet available everywhere like in my country, sadly. But the future is bright.Show more
