Wicked Tales: Dark Red
Triple Edge Studios are the creative force that, in partnership with Microgaming, have brought us Playboy™ Gold and the super-thrilling Halloween® online video pokie. Now, the duo has released a third game, and their newest creation, Wicked Tales: Dark Red promises to boldly go where no Halloween-themed pokie has dared go before. It’s a classic scary story, but completely re-imagined, and players are going to love it!

Gaming Innovation At Its Best

The scene is set on 5 reels and 25 paylines, and players are transported on a journey through the Ravenmire forests, where all sorts of spooky adventures are to be had. From a functional point of view, the game has been kitted with Triple Edge’s unique Wandering Reels feature, which consists of a trilogy of wheels spinning simultaneously, creating massive wins whenever the Jumbo Blocks feature kicks into motion.

The bonus round has been aptly named the Wolf’s Wheel Bonus, and from here on out, the winning action really intensifies. Cash prizes, free spins and multipliers – its all there for everyone’s enjoyment.

Gorgeous graphics, a spooky soundtrack and easy navigation make this game all the more appealing, and it can be played on desktop or mobile.

A New Approach To Design

Triple Edge Studios is what is known as an independent design studio, which basically means that they are more likely to go against the grain. In the iGaming industry, going against the grain is the best type of going that there is, as this approach to software development ensures that the end product is fresh and innovative.

Microgaming has been the first of the large software development houses to incorporate the dedicated independent design studio concept, and so far, it’s been changing the way we do gaming. The teams working on the projects are not the typical humdrum “doing it this way because we’ve always done it this way” kind of clans. What they are essentially doing is something that the global iGaming industry desperately needs: they are breathing new life into creative concepts, and especially video pokies.

Microgaming has always been at the forefront of development expertise, and they certainly aren’t showing any signs of slowing down anytime soon. Wicked Tales: Dark Red is proof of this, and pokies fans are going to be waiting in anticipation to see what comes next!
