Explore the Dark Arts in Voodoo Hex Slot
I love Peter & Sons slots. They’re just a step ahead of everyone else. They don’t release often but when they do, you can see their absence has been filled with long nights of hard work. I am very excited to take a look at the latest addition to their body of work, the three-reel Voodoo Hex slot.
Like many Peter & Sons games, this one pursues myth and legend. In this case, it brings the dark arts of Voodoo to life. So, does it live up to the very high standards set by previous games from the provider?
You don’t need a doll to win
Let’s start with Mystery Stack respins, the slot’s most interesting and complex bonus feature. It’s triggered by the appearance of two complete reels of the same symbol. Once it is, the two triggering rows will transform into mystery symbols and the remaining symbols will be spun. After the spin, the mystery symbols will transform to reveal a single symbol type. The mystery symbol stack then moves down one place with the process repeating until all mystery symbols fall out the bottom. Additionally, when Mystery Stack respins are triggered, a 1x progressive multiplier is activated. The multiplier will increase by 1x with each winning combination that occurs during a round of respins.
Coins are the easiest way to win When one of these symbols appears on the reels, it will award an immediate prize whether it is involved in a winning combination or not. Coin symbols can appear as the reveal of a set of mystery symbols for multiple instant prize wins.
If you’re looking to experiment with the dark art of free spins, you’ll need to wait until a voodoo head scatter lands in the middle of the reels. That’s right, just one. Once this occurs, you’ll first trigger a sort of jackpot wheel for free spins that uses bones instead of a wheel and awards 7, 9, 12, or 15 free spins.
Like Mystery Stack respins, the Voodoo Hex slot free spins start with a 1x progressive jackpot that will increase by 1x. However, unlike Mystery Stack respins you don’t need to win to increase the multiplier. Instead, a 1x multiplier will be added to the progressive multiplier total with each and every spin or respin during your round of free spins.
If you’re not keen on waiting around to learn the way of the dark arts from a creepy old priest, you can select to purchase a round of free spins. The slot’s buy bonus feature gives you the option to purchase 7 or 15 free spins, or a spin on the “bonus wheel” that could award 7, 9, 12, or 15 free spins.
Is Voodoo Hex slot dangerous or downright awesome?
I get excited for slot releases from three providers: Nolimit City, Yggdrasil, and Peter & Sons. The three are not equal, though. Nolimit City slots are always outrageous and one out of every two is great. Yggdrasil is slightly more hit-and-miss with maybe one in every three being a hit. Peter & Sons have not made a slot that I haven’t loved. There is always so much care put into their slots. Each one is an astonishing feat of hard work and creativity. And Voodoo Hex slot is no exception.
The slot is astonishing in its detail. There are so many elements of the slot to enjoy that it was days before I had stopped finding fun new details. And the bonus features aren’t like anything they’ve done before, something that so many slot providers suffer from. It’s just a great slot.
Perfection, as you know, comes with a price. In the case of Voodoo Hex slot, this price is surprisingly low. The slot does have a fairly average RTP of 96%, but that’s really nothing to turn my nose at. The slot also has medium to high volatility. However, the latter mostly applies when you decide to purchase a round of free spins. If you play the slot the old-fashioned way, you’re looking at medium volatility giving you a nice balance between consistent wins and big wins.
Talking about big wins. Voodoo Hex slot offers a very attractive 9,800x max multiplier. This gives you a shot at playing for the €245,000 max win at €25 a spin. That’s not the lowest max bet I’ve ever seen but with a 9,800x max multiplier, you can push your bet down below €10 a spin and still enjoy some healthy wins.
If you’re looking for a few other solid gold slots from Peter & Sons, you can literally try any one of the slot providers’ games, and you won’t be disappointed. However, if you’re interested in my favorites, I would go with Xibalba and Hammer of Gods. Xibalba specifically is possibly my favorite slot game of all time.
