As if to dispel myths about popular omens for bad-luck, International Games Technology (IGT) released Hexbreaker 2, sequel to the online version of IGT’s hex-themed video slot. Presented in a 5-reel, 3-column frame, the new IGT Hexbreaker 2 game offers 720 Multiway Xtra pay ways. Such an attribute enables players to achieve more wins, by considering three or more like symbol combinations whether originating from the leftmost reel going to the right, or vice versa.
Hexbreaker 2 video slot has two sets of high-paying symbols, one for the base game, and the other set for the Free-Spins Bonus Game. The base game makes use of bad luck omens, such as the black cat, the number 13, a broken mirror, and a crow. Despite their dark presage, they bring generous coin rewards. The Black Cat pays as many as 500 coins while the Number 13 pays up to 300 coins.
Players can engage in the game by placing 50 coins as bet on all 720 paylines. Coin values range from 1.00 up to 1500.00. A minimum bet therefore, would be equivalent to 50.00 per spin (50 coins x 1.00), while the maximum bet allowable is up to 75,000 (50 coins x 1500.00).
Hexbreaker 2 Video Slot Pay-Boosting Features
The Free-Spins Round uses objects regarded as bringers of good luck or good fortune, such as the white cat, the lucky number seven (7) and the four-leaf clover. The white cat and the Lucky Number 7 pay 300 and 200 respectively, at the most.
Even the Scatter Symbol in the base game and in the Free-Spins round is dissimilar. The base game uses the JINX word as Scatter symbol, yet pays generously whenever three, four, or five symbols emerge as spin outcomes. In the Free-Spins Game, the word KARMA, pose as the symbol that brings around the same Scatter Pays. The Scatter rewards are in the form of 3x, 20x, and 100x multipliers, awarded to a bonus player based on the number of Scatters that appeared as outcomes of a spin. The equivalent value of the Scatter payout is determined by the value multiplier, times the most recent amount placed as bet for each spin.
Moreover, the Free-Spins Bonus Game, which awards ten bet-free spins, can be activated by five (5) Silver Horseshoe symbols appearing as outcomes of a base game spin. In the set of ten bet-free spins, the Silver Horseshoe symbol in play becomes a Gold Horseshoe. If a spin returns with five (5) Gold Horseshoe symbols, another round of Free-Spins Bonus Game will be launched. Spins can be retriggered several times, with which a player can have as many as 260 extra spins per session.
The Hexbreaker 2 Logo is a regular symbol but it has the highest payout equivalent of 5,000 coins for every five-of-a-kind symbols.
The wild icon is simply labeled as WILD, and emerges only in Reels, 2,3, and 4. The WILD’s substitution functionality is enhanced by its ability to appear in stacked formation. There is also a possibility of landing on reel outcomes that contain more than one set of Stacked WILDs.
