With a voodoo theme based on black magic, the Hex slot is a five reel, three row game with 243 ways to win in the base mode. Featuring skulls and potions, this plays a little like Voodoo Magic from a different developer. This title was released by Relax Gaming, and during it the game’s grid will grow to four rows and 1,024 paylines when in the free spins bonus round. Wins occur when at least three matching symbols line up in a combination on adjacent reels from left to right starting on the first reel. Wins as high as 25,000 X the bet are possible in this game.
The soundtrack is as eerie and creepy sounding, with sprinkles in a touch of magic as you hit the spin button. Play takes place in a room full of potions, bones and books and there are candles burning away in the foreground. On the reels you will find lower paying bottles of potions in the colours of blue, green, purple, orange and red. Then we have a chicken’s foot, fortune cards, snakes, voodoo dolls, and a goat skull. The goat skull is the most rewarding symbol and pays 2 X, 4 X or 10 X your stake for three, four or five in combination.
The wild, which has a fanged, horned skull on it, only pays if five of them land, but when they do they can pay 20 X your stake. These can also substitute for all other symbols. There is a scatter symbol which is a book and is the key to triggering the free spins bonus round. Finally, there are two sorceress symbols – gold and silver – and the first of these will convert marked symbols into the same randomly selected paying symbol, while the second will convert marked symbols into the Wild symbol.

How To Play Hex
How to Set Your Stake
In order to set your desired stake size, you can use the plus and minus buttons that are located on the left side of the black bar that runs across the bottom of the screen. Bet sizing options range from a minimum of 10p to a maximum of £30 per spin.
How to Spin the Reels
The key to making the reels spin can also be found on the bottom black bar. In the centre of the bar, there is a circle button with an arrow on it. This is your spinner, and one hit will set the reels in motion.
Hex Bonus Features
This game comes with a Mystery Reveal feature. Here, you will find Sorceress symbols on the fifth reel. These will convert any symbol that’s inside a blue frame into the same symbol. The game also has a free spins feature which is triggered by landing three or more scatters on the reels. Three scatters will deliver seven spins, four will bring 10 free spins and five scatters will award fifteen free spins.
Before the bonus round gets underway, the reels will expand to create an additional row, meaning that you will now be playing with four rows and 1,024 ways to win. Any converted symbols will stay marked for the duration of the bonus round which means that the reels can progressively fill with marked positions. One additional free spin will be awarded for each scatter symbol that lands during the Free Spins feature.
21.co.uk Review Of Hex
The Hex slot game has a lot of potential and, with its dark themes of black magic and voodoo, isn’t one you’ll come across very often. It’s not everyday that you will be spinning for goat skulls on the reels. In the Free Spins feature an extra row comes into play to give you 1,024 ways to win, while the potential arrival of the sorceresses adds to the excitement by transforming symbols to make for possibly bigger wins. If you like this type of theme, or just the chance to spin for prizes of 25,000 X your stake, then this could be the game for you.
