Hexbreaker 2 is another 5 reel, 720 ways to win from IGT which uses the MultiWay Xtra wagering engine. Playable from 50p to £200 a spin, the game is available on desktop (laptop/PC), mobile and tablet devices. It has a ‘banish your bad luck’ theme as there’s no superstitious hocus pocus. The symbols on the reels show black cats, horseshoes, Jinx, black crows and broken mirrors amongst others reinforcing the luck theme.
You can make your own luck in Hexbreaker 2 by going on a winning streak. This is possible with the hexagonal structure where you will get paid for matching symbols in any position in adjacent columns. More importantly, you can win both left to right and right to left. The same symbol in the same column will multiply awards too.
You will also see wild symbols on the 3 middle reels for even bigger wins which substitute for all other symbols except the Jinx scatter. 3 of these will give you 3 times your stake, 4 of them will give you 20 times your stake and 5 will reward you with 100 times your total bet!
Look out for the Horseshoe logo symbol as this is the scatter – one of these on 5 consecutive reels will instantly bring you luck and activate the Free Spins Bonus feature. Here you are rewarded with 10 free spins but there are richer reels on offer leading to a bigger win potential.
A Bonus symbol on any 5 consecutive reels instantly changes your fortunes and triggers 10 free spins in the Free Spins Bonus, which offers reels even richer than in the base game. During the feature, the Horseshoe symbol is turned upside down with a different colouring – 5 of them will reward you with an additional 10 free spins. There’s up to 260 free spins on offer too! Look out for the Karma symbol during the feature too as you can get 100 times your stake if you get 5 of them.
Hexbreaker 2 is an odd game – well, the game engine has been used a lot by IGT with this version being medium variance. I am referring to the theme which is a little weird. I much prefer Pacific Paradise which has a more pleasant and soothing theme as well as being highly volatile. I’d also recommend Siberian Storm which also has a better theme.
