Groundbreaking new slots bonus feature on Felix Gaming’s Dark Mystic Slot.
Felix Gaming is a small digital slots developer with big ideas for the future of interactive gambling. They’re so new, in fact, that their website is still under development. Maybe that’s because they’re too busy pioneering innovative slots designs to worry about marketing just yet?
Whatever the case, their groundbreaking new title, Dark Mystic, is making headlines following today’s launch. The game is endowed with sharp graphics and a mythical dragon theme, but the real kicker is the slots bonus feature that requests an element of skill from its players.
Let’s take a quick look at Felix Gaming’s latest creation, and why it’s demanding so much attention.
Dark Mystic Mobile Slots
Dark Mystic is a 5×3 reel video slot with 10 paylines. It has a smokey, midnight sky backdrop and foreboding soundtrack that perfectly compliment the theme and graphics. Developed in HTML5, the game is fully compatible with all major operating systems, both desktop and mobile.
Its symbols include a gorgeously rendered, fire breathing dragon, gleaming treasure chest, a pair of mystic sorceresses – brunette and red head – a dragon’s eye, and a blazing sword. Playing card values of 10, J, Q, K and A round out the lower-paying variety.
Drag Win Slots Bonus Feature
The most alluring feature of the Dark Mystic Slot is as unique slots bonus feature. It gives players some control over the game and their winnings. It’s a skill-based function, and one that the most fastidious of gamblers can take lucrative advantage of.
Felix Gaming calls it the Drag Win feature. It involves the game’s Wild symbol, represented by the Dragon, and can occur randomly throughout game play. The dragon may suddenly appear following any spin of the reels. When it does, players will need to act very quickly.
The Drag Win is an expanding wild, and players can choose its position anywhere on the reels.. The only catch is that players are given just 2 seconds to decide its placement. Pick the right spot, and it could be worth a huge payout.
If the player does not select a position for the Drag Win Wild before time runs out, the wild will automatically position itself in a random spot. But that’s not necessarily a bad thing.
When the wild is automatically placed, should it fail to produce a winning combination, it will trigger a free respin of the reels, called the Reel Refill. If the players chooses the position within the 2 second time limit, and a winning combination is not produced, then no respin will take place.
Complex Skill-Based Bonus Months in the Making
It took developers of the new Dark Mystic slots many months to work out all the mathematics behind this unique slots bonus feature. As many of you know, skill-based slot machines must still fall within a specific payback percentage. Felix Gaming CEO Bilyan Balinov was especially proud of what the FG team was able to produce.
“The Drag Wins feature is something special and is the result a lot of hard work under the hood and on the math and mechanics of the slot,” he said.
“It is and industry-first bonus feature, giving players greater control over their wins. This, in turn, helps to ramp up anticipation and excitement, driving engagement levels higher than any other game feature on the market,” extolled Balinov.
