Why isn’t punctuality an issue in the afterlife? Because everyone is already late! This is one of the jokes you’ll hear repeated over and over if you leave the Hades Gigablox slot open whilst you take break from it. An October 2020 release from Yggdrasil Gaming, Hades Gigablox follows up from their Lucky Neko slot with a much more sinister theme. However, is the slot as lame as the jokes it spits out, read our full review to see exactly what we made of the game.
Sound and Graphics
Hades Gigablox is a brilliant new slot game. The Gigablox dynamic works excellently and is exciting to watch, also making for some nice sized potential wins when you see it expanding to 4×4 or more. The graphics are superb and the music fits very well too. The commentary could possibly be annoying but if it is you can just turn it off in the settings. Overall it is certainly worth trying out and has the potential be one of 2020’s most popular slots. Hopefully we’ll see more Gigabox type slots in the near future!
- Superb Graphics and Sound
- Thrilling Gigablox Dynamic
- Decent Max Win Potential at 11,219x
- More Bonus Features Might Be Nice To See
Hades Gigablox Slot Stats
How it Pays and Plays
Hades Gigablox is set on a 6 reel, 6 row grid. The reels can combine to make 2×2, 3×3, 4×4, 5×5 and even 6×6 blocks to cover the entire grid. When reels combine they all contain the same symbol, so the bigger the better and you want it to start from left to right to ensure winning combos. This is the Gigablox function which is really pretty cool, and a feature of the slot which breathes some life into the slot, or death, as it may be!
You have a 96% RTP which is basically standard these days, nothing to get excited about but fair enough.
There are 50 paylines available with betting ranging from 10p/cents up to a pretty big max of $/£/€100.
You get medium volatility with a still very appealing maximum win potential of 11,219x.
There is a free spins bonus round and also a base game modifier called “Hades Wild Hunt” which can see various symbols turn into Wilds.
Symbols and Graphics
There are 4 low paying symbols which are playing card suits, then your premium symbols are various underworld monsters which pay up to a maximum of 8x for 6 of a kind.
The slot is set on the background of the underworld with the grid enclosed in a tower of skulls and dragon statues. Hades is standing to the right and is ready to spring into action for the Hades Wild Hunt.
The Scatter symbols say “Free Spins”on them. Land 5 to trigger the bonus.
Wild symbols will say “Wild” on them in gold writing.
There’s no issues with the graphics here, they look absolutely top notch and when the reels spin and you see the Gigablox expand it’s pretty exciting as you hope they keep expanding.
There is also commentary and some jokes added into the Hades Gigablox slot. Whether or not this suits you you’ll have to see for yourself, if you don’t like it you can simply head to the settings and turn it off.
Hades Wild Hunt Feature
During the base game this feature can spin in randomly. Here, Hades will jump into the slot reels and fight any of the monsters showing on premium symbols which are in view. Each monster which he defeats will turn into a Wild.
Free Spins Bonus
You need to land a minimum of 5 Scatters to trigger the free spins bonus round, each extra Scatter you land during the free spins bonus will add one extra free spin. Here you’ll see that the Hades Wild Hunt is added to each spin. This not only increases the chance of a winning combo being formed but it also helps to increase the win multiplier by collecting as many Wilds as possible. This goes as follows:
10 Successful Wild Hunt Wilds = 2x Multiplier + 2 Extra Free Spins
15 Successful Wild Hunt Wilds = 3x Multiplier + 2 Extra Free Spins
20 Successful Wild Hunt Wilds = 5x Multiplier + 2 Extra Free Spins
25 Successful Wild Hunt Wilds = 10x Multiplier + 2 Extra Free Spins
