Hades: Gigablox Slot RTP, Details & Wager Limits

The Hades: Gigablox slot is played on 6 reel, 6 row grid with 50 paylines. All winning combinations pay from left to right, starting from reel 1, and required 3 to 6 matching symbols.

Stakes range from 10p to £100 per spin. There’s an Autoplay function where you can select between 10 and 1,000 autospins. There’s also an infinity option. In the Settings tab, you can choose the volume level and whether you have sound effects, ambience sound and voice overs or not. You can also determine the spin speed and stop autoplay via balance increase/decreases, when you activate the Free Spins feature or on a single win limit.

Variance wise, Hades: Gigablox is a highly volatile slot. With most wins coming in the base game, the bigger wins will come in the Free Spins feature due to the multipliers on offer. With an RTP of 96%, the hit frequency is 20.5% meaning just over 1 in 5 spins will result in a winning combination. It’s high risk but this trip to the Underworld is worth undertaking as the max win is 11,129 x stake per free spin.

Theme – Audio & Design Features – join the patron god of the Underworld

Hades Gigablox slot base game

The Hades: Gigablox slot is set in the Underworld which is the supernatural world of the dead. You join Hades, the king of the Underworld, in this Greek mythology themed adventure. Dark and with a sinister feel, the high definition graphics show Hades to the side of the reels.

The soundtrack is intense and adds to the dark atmosphere. Surrounding the reels are skulls and skeletons wrapped with gold snakes. You’ll also hear Hades commenting as you spin the reels – you’ll either love it or hate it.

On the reels you will come across low value diamond, spade, club and heart symbols.  You’ll also see various monsters as the high value symbols. The Chimera symbol is the most rewarding giving you 0.6, 1.6, 3.2 or 8 x your total stake for 3, 4, 5 or 6 in combination.

There is also a gold Chimera wild symbol which substitutes for all regular symbols. However, it can only be rewarded in the Hades Wild Hunts feature (more details below).

As you’d expect, the Hades: Gigablox slot can be played on desktop, mobile and tablet devices. It’s a real feast for the sense even on smartphone screens.

Bonus Features in Hades: Gigablox

The Hades: Gigablox slot comes with 4 bonus features. With symbols appearing in blocks up to 6x6 in size, Hades can randomly battle monsters to transform them into wilds. This applies on each free spin where this fillers the Cerberus Multiplier meter. This can lead to 10x multipliers on every free spin.

This game is the second slot to use the Gigablox feature/mechanic. This block feature randomises the size of symbol blocks appearing on the reels. The blocks can appear as 2x2 up to 6x6 in size. The bigger the block, the bigger the potential wins.

Hades Wild Hunt feature

Hades Gigablox slot Hades Wild Hunt feature

During any base game spin, the Hades Wild Hunt can trigger randomly. The reels then go dark and reels land. Hades then jumps into the reels and fights with the high value monster symbols. If Hades wins the fight against a monster, that monster symbol transforms into a wild symbol. This also applies to blocks of monster symbols.

Wild Hunt Free Spins feature

In order to trigger the Wild Hunt Free Spins feature, you need to land 5 or more free spins scatters. With scatters also appears in blocks, you could land a 6x6 scatter block which would result in 36 free spins. The minimum you’ll begin with is 5 free spins (for 5 scatters). During the feature, each scatter landing will add 1 more free spin to your tally, with no limits.

Cerberus Multiplier feature

Every fight Hades wins adds points to the Cerberus Multiplier meter. If Hades fights a 2x2 block for example and wins, the block will count as single symbols (so 4 symbols).

Known as the Cerberus Multiplier feature, this increases the win multiplier on each free spin up to 10x. For every multiplier level you reach, 2 more free spins are won:

Successful Wild Hunts Multiplier Extra Free Spins
10 2x +2
15 3x +2
20 5x +2
25 10x +2

Hades: Gigablox Review Summary – superb Underworld action from Yggdrasil Gaming

Yggdrasil Gaming debuted the Gigablox mechanic/feature with the Lucky Neko: Gigablox slot. Hades: Gigablox is visually much better and has more bonus features. With the Greek mythology theme proving very popular amongst slot players, this game will surely be more appealing.

With max wins of 11,129 x stake per free spin, this dark trip to the Underworld is a highly risky one. It will take approximately 400 spins to trigger the Wild Hunt Free Spins feature. The rewards can be worth it though.

If you want Greek mythology action, Playtech’s Age of the Gods slot has plenty of bonus features, big win potential as well as 4 progressive jackpots.
