Welcome to the underworld, a fiery inferno where Hades fights hellish monsters and transforms them into gold. This is Yggdrasil’s second online casino game featuring the Gigablox™ mechanic, which is designed to create huge blocks and combos with any spin. The Gigablox™ come in sizes from 2×2 to a massive 6×6. The maximum potential in this game is an impressive 11,129x your original bet. With high-quality animations, fierce and captivating Greek mythological creatures and a thrilling variety of bonus features, this is a top-quality game.
You can play either manually or set up the automated spin computer. The game is played on a 6×6 grid with standard controls situated at the bottom, including spin, max bet and autoplay. The excellent gameplay includes Hades turning monster symbols into extra wilds, as well as multipliers up to 10x base value.
Graphics and Theme
When it comes to the design, animation and background for this game, Yggdrasil has outdone themselves. The main character in the game is Hades, who is portrayed on the right of the screen holding a blue plume of fire. Throughout the game he cracks a few underworld related jokes and dives into the grid at random, blowing up the tiles in a fiery explosion. The backing music is a kind of low-key rock riff, which fits nicely with the overall hellscape theme. The monster symbols are decorated with highly detailed images of some of the classic Greek mythological creatures, such as The Hydra, Cyclops and Minitour. Another nice touch is that the control panel at the bottom of the screen is gently smouldering like the depths of hell.
Throughout the game, Hades, as mentioned, jumps into the grid and transforms a random number of tiles into wild symbols, which then have the potential to create a win. Thanks to the Gigablox™ feature grid type, the tiles he can turn into wilds can be massive and count for multiple tiles, giving greater odds for a big win.
Free spins are especially important in this game as they fill up the Cerberus Multiplier, while also adding two extra free spins each time this happens. To achieve larger multipliers, you need 10, 15, 20 and then 25 Wild Hunts to succeed. These, in turn, grant you the corresponding multipliers of 2x, 3x, 5x, and 10x.
In addition to the wilds, there are also various scatters which can trigger Wild Hunt Free Spins. Look out for images of Cerberus especially, as any five or more images of the three-headed hell dog on the six reels of the Hades: Gigablox slot machine, launch a free spins round.
The Hades Wild Hunt feature is the most exciting bonus though, with a rising multiplier activated after a set number of monster transformations. Once ten monster symbols transform into wilds, wins double in value, and then they triple after 15 successful hunts. If Hades defeats 25 or more monsters before the games cease, the maximum 10x multiplier applies to any further wins in the feature.
Game How to Play
To play the game is simple enough once you are set up. At the start of each game, you will choose the coin value and then place a bet from 0.10 to 100 coins per spin. The controls are fairly intuitive, with the spin button in the centre, the max bet button next to that as well as autoplay controls on the same line.
Once underway, you will need at least three matching symbols across a pay line to win. However, since this game uses the Gigablox™ feature, any monster symbols can be from 1×1 to 6×6.
