When we gamble we all want to get lucky and take home the big prize. IGT's Hexbreaker 2 slot is hoping that you will use a bit of bad luck to cash in on a big slot win. The game features a lot of bad omens, and a dark overall theme which when combined with an interesting reel layout gives players a reason to check out theis creepy title.
Hexbreaker 2 is a 5 reel, 720 ways to win, video slot that has some standard slot features combined with icons that punters would associate with bad luck. These include crows, upside down horseshoes, broken mirrors, black cats, and the number 13. These are joined by Jacks, Queens, and Kings, as well as a game title symbol, the word 'Jinx', and a wild symbol that reads 'Wild'. Aside from paying on every possible 720 way combination, this game employs IGT's MultiWay Xtra system that also pays winning combinations from right to left in addition to the normal left to right.
Features in the game include the above mentioned wild symbol, scatters, free spins, and win multipliers. Triggering the 10 free spins mode requires you to land an upside down horseshoe on all five reels. If you do this, your luck turns and you're granted symbols that include a 7, white kitten, ladybug, four leaf clover, and a right way round horseshoe that can trigger more free spins. This gives the game more depth and makes it much more interesting to look at.
I have to say that despite the cool theme that I'm not really a fan of Hexbreaker or this sequel. The game is a little boring and plays almost exactly like similar games such as Fire Horse. Still, there are a bunch of people who enjoyed this slot at land casinos, and I suspect this online version of the game is directed at them. For my taste though, I'd prefer to hit some of the other great IGT slots like the branded Monopoly or Wheel of Fortune titles. If you don't enjoy this game, maybe give those slots a shot.
