Those who are scared of spiders have no fear, Black Widow references the menacing female protagonist. She’s fierce, mean and takes no prisoners. This dark and mysterious game is set to send shivers down your spine.
Five reels, forty paylines and plenty of bonuses
With a gloomy and somewhat gothic feel, Black Widow is not for the faint hearted. Generally we expect slot games to be bright and cheerful, much like the Kitty Glitter or Golden Goddess slots, but this game takes a whole new angle completely. With spider webs looming in the corner, along with décor you would find in Dracula, all these elements really set the scene.
Black Widow tells the story of an unnamed protagonist who lures men into love and takes them for everything they’ve got. The slot symbols tell this story with her rich and wealthy victims starring as their own symbol, alongside the black widow herself. Joining these symbols you have the generic card values, from 10 to ace.
In regards to scatters, you have the general wild symbol, which is the black widow logo, where if you create a combination of five you win 1000x your stake. Furthermore, you have the green potion vial, which the widow uses to pick off her victims – this is the free spins bonus symbol. In this game you get more than just free spins, which we’ll go through in the next section.
Overall, it’s a really nice looking game if you’re into gothic themes, but if you’re not, have no fear, as the potential to win big is always looming.
Bonus features and more with Black Widow
As mentioned before, the green poison bonus symbol triggers the free spins if they land on reels 2, 3 and 4. Not your regular scatter symbol, they must fill up the reels completely, otherwise the bonus will not start. Once you have though, you’ll be rewarded with 7 free spins.
Triggering the bonus is only the start, once you’re spinning for free the web capture bonus will start. Here you’ll have to capture men spinning around the reels, and once you do so your wins will be multiplied and applied to the line bet. If you manage to land the female who’s spinning around (the black widow herself), you’ll get all the combined multipliers on the screen.
Black Widow is most definitely a creepy, yet satisfying slot with a lot to offer. So, what are you waiting for, have a go if you dare.
