Devils is an impishly entertaining fruit machine re-boot from Stake Logic. Played using a 5 reel, 10 payline game engine, it comes with expanding wilds, re-spins and multipliers that can boost payouts by up to 8x. Play from 10p to 40p and £50 to £200 per spin.
The design here is simple but nicely done – the reels include cherries, lemons and oranges which award up to 20 coins per payline followed by the plums, grapes and strawberries which award up to 75 coins. Next comes the lucky red 7 which pays up to 150 coins and the neon devil mask which is the best of the standard symbols. Land 3, 4 or 5 of these in a line and you’ll pocket 60, 200 or 300 coins. Winning combinations can be created from right to left as well as left to right.
The devilish-looking bell is the wild – it appears on the middle 3 reels only. When it hits, it will expand and fill the whole of that reel – you’ll also trigger the Random Wild Multiplier feature. You’ll also be awarded a free re-spin with the stacked wild or wilds locked in place.
When firing up Devils, you’ll need to decide whether to increase your bet level and in the process, bring the wild multipliers into play:
- Bet Level 1 – this is the standard bet and there are no wild multipliers in play.
- Bet Level 2 – this costs double the standard bet. Wins including a wild can be boosted by 1x, 2x, 3x or 4x multipliers.
- Bet Level 3 – this is treble the standard bet. In return, wild wins benefit from multipliers of 3x, 4x, 5x or 6x.
- Bet Level 4 – spins cost 4 times the standard bet. The wild multipliers on offer increase to 5x, 6x, 7x or 8x.
Devils is a simple game – the main action comes from the expanding wilds. These can deliver ample rewards, especially if you’re playing at 1 of the higher bet levels. We managed to land the best part of 200 times our stake after hitting stacked wilds on consecutive spins then boosting the payout with a 5x multiplier. It’s a medium to high variance game with potential wins of 2,400 times your bet on every spin.
We enjoyed Devils – the visuals are neat and crisp, there’s a suitably demonic backing track and there’s plenty of action on offer from the gameplay. Developers are always looking to breathe new life into the humble fruity. Stake Logic’s attempt to do just that is an impressive one and well worth a spin. I also recommend you take a look at some of their other offerings with Football Gladiators and King Bam Bam worth trying.
