A Dark Matter Slot Review – Slingshot Studios/ Microgaming

Microgaming has been collaborating with many smaller studios now. There is a big list of studios the game creators have worked with so far. This list is still growing and includes studios from all over the world. Microgaming has decided to collaborate with smaller studio ‘Slingshot Studios’. This is a new independent game studio located on the Isle Of Man. The game studio will be developing exclusive content for Microgaming. Their last collaboration game I reviewed was ‘9 Masks Of Fire‘, with Gameburger Studios. Now the next game is titled ‘A Dark Matter‘, which is available to play now on Casumo and other sites.

This game has spooky visuals that remind me of a horror film. In the background, it is dark with trees and old buildings. Lights are barely visible and the soundtrack, while you spin, is nerve-wracking. The visuals are well made and show great detail. The reel set has a simple silver border and overall the look of the game is something more unique. This is released right near Halloween but isn’t a typical Halloween game with skeletons and jack o lanterns.

A Dark Matter has a classic setup of 5 reels by 3 rows, this includes 5 set pay lines. This game is a medium variance due to the max win capped at 2,400x and set RTP of 96.18%. You can bet from £0.05-£50.

A Dark Matter Slot Review Paytable & Symbols

This game has 12 symbols in total, this includes 5 low paying symbols. These are represented by 10, J, Q, K, And A.There are also 5 premium symbols, these are represented by 5 different characters. There is also a scatter symbol and a dark matter wild. The most valuable symbol is the gold-framed premium character symbol, which pays 600x for 5 across a pay line. The wild symbol substitutes for all paying symbols and only appears on reels 2,3 and 4. Wilds are stacked on reels 2 and 4 in the base game. Wilds are also super stacked on reels 2 and 4 in the free spins feature.

A Dark Matter Slot Review Features

Central to this game is the free spins feature. This is activated when you land a scatter symbol on reels 2,3 and 4 during the same spin. This will award 12 free spins, during these spins wilds are super stacked on reels 2 and 4. Having a full wild stack on reels 2 and 4 will turn reel 3 wild and double your wins. For each scatter that lands during these spins will award +1 extra spin.


Overall, I think this is a great game creation by both studios. However, it feels like something is missing from this slot. The release date is perfect with halloween coming up. I just think something needs to be added, like many other features or even the max win to be increased. Be sure to try the game for yourself and check out our exclusive casino offers.
