3x3 Hell Spin Slot Review
Kids, and most probably their parents, too, are becoming progressively whiney and oversensitive as the years plod on. Not only do young ones wanna identify as a shrub or a piece of lint these days, but they’re now being “protected” from their own names.
OK, one name in particular.
In 2017, the Icelandic Naming Committee ruled that parents couldn’t name their child Hel. That’s because it’s the moniker of a Norse deity that presides over the Underworld and, god forbid, the brat might suffer “significant distress and trouble as it grows up.”
Let’s pause a minute to take that all in. So, you’re gonna tell me – the person who contributed a bunch of DNA and 30 seconds of my life towards bringing said sniveling ankle-biter into existence – not to call it something? Yeah, right. Get a life, people.
This is 3x3 Hell Spin slot from Gamzix.
You wouldn’t know it from my avatar, but I’m a freak: a tattooed, metalhead weirdo whose black heart goes all a-flutter when October rolls around. And that’s because it’s that time of year when game studios start releasing spooky games in anticipation of Halloween.
The name of this slot speaks to the 3x3-reel grid, which is enormous and looks spectacular on a mobile phone. Strangely, there’s no haunting soundtrack here – the only noise comes from the sound of the reels landing in place.
The symbols are the usual fruity suspects (albeit you’ll see double of each), with the 7s being the highest-paying, followed by the silver stars, the bells, watermelon and grapes, with the plums, oranges, and cherries being the lowest.
There are 5 fixed paylines here, and the RTP is a decent 96.10%. Gamezix has set the volatility rate to medium, but the max win is nowhere near the amount I expected at just €14,000. I mean, whaaaat? Seriously?
You can bet using either fiat currency or crypto, so at least there’s that.
Unlike many other fruit slots, this one offers a Bonus game, and it’ll be triggered when you land 3 Hell Coins on the central reel.
The triggering symbols carry a multiplier which gets added to the counter above the grid (the amount will pay out at the end of the round), and Bonus symbols become sticky and stay where they’re at until the feature is over.
You’ll be given 3 spins at the start of the Bonus round, and each new Hell Coin will reset that counter. Lastly, the value of all the landed Hell Coins will be added to the total prize once the round is done.
This is a mechanism you might have seen in other games and is offered after the Bonus round. It works like this: you’ll have to choose between 4 face-down cards, and your bet is instantly doubled if your card beats the dealers.
You can do your thing 10 times in a row but if, at any stage, the dealer beats you, that’ll mean the loss of however much you’ve accumulated until then. You can abandon ship whenever you’re ready by hitting the piggy bank symbol on the SPIN button.
Draw with the dealer and your round will be pushed (in other words, you’ll just start again). It’s worth noting that Jokers beat all other cards and the dealer can never draw a Joker. The RTP for the Double round is 86%
I’m happy to announce that 3x3 Hell Spins slot performed flawlessly on my phone and laptop. There was no buffering nor were there loading issues on either Safari or Chrome, so go ahead and pick whichever browser you prefer.
If you’re still reading this review, then it probably means the pathetic €14,000 max win hasn’t put you off. The multiplier is a measly 700x, which means the max bet is capped at €20 (with the minimal bet you can place being €0.20).
I quite enjoyed 3x3 Hell Spin slot so it’s a real pity that the max win is only 14 grand and you don’t get Free Spins.
Look, those things might not bother you if you’re a casual player or someone who is new to slots. In that case, it might be worth checking out.
For more hardcore players, 3x3 Hell Spins slot probably won’t cut the mustard. And I say this also because there are loads of fruit slots floating around, and this one doesn’t offer enough to set itself apart from the competition.
