Pragmatic Play is never short of ideas regarding releasing innovative online slots. This time, the company has invited its players to a scary but entertaining trip to hell, where the devil-like creature (Hellvis) is the leading entertainer with rock and roll tunes. Pragmatic Play says players should prepare to “raise hell” in this spectacular show.
That short introduction aside, the music concert happens on a standard 5×3 podium with 243 winning ways. This means players only need to match symbols on adjacent reels to receive their performance reward.
As expected, the J-A card royals are the low-value icons, rewarding players with 0.1x to 0.75x the stake. They are joined by other high-paying symbols like microphones, studded bracelets, guitar picks, and the hand symbol. Matching at least three of these devilish symbols can reward you with a 0.15x to 2x payout. Remember that the hand symbol can pay out if you match only two.
Meanwhile, players can up the ante of this game by landing the wild symbols anywhere on the reels. This symbol substitutes the other paying icons except for the scatter and golden wild, helping gamers form even bigger wins. Even better, the wild comes with a 10x multiplier whenever players find five of them on the game board.
The game also has a golden wild symbol which can replace all icons except the scatter when it lands. Once it settles on the reels, it will nudge down by a single position at the bottom of the game board. With each nudge, the multiplier will increase by 1x, and players continue to respin the reels until the golden wild icon reaches the reel’s bottom.
Pragmatic Play also added the free spins mode in this music-themed slot machine. Players can receive 7, 11, or 15 free spins after landing 3, 4, or 5 scatter icons, respectively. If you land a similar number of scatters during the bonus rounds, you’ll receive the same number of respins, boosting your winning chances even further.
During the bonus rounds, any nudging multipliers that players land will stay locked on top of the reels while incrementally rising with each additional wild that lands. Players can quickly accumulate many progressive multipliers, increasing the possibility of significant winnings.
In some jurisdictions (UK excluded), online casino players can access the game’s bonus buy feature. You can pay 100x the original stake to go straight to the free spins round, where you’re sure of landing scatter symbols. The game also has the ante bet feature for increasing your chances of activating the free spins mode.
Irina Cornides, Pragmatic Play’s Chief Operating Officer, commented: “Hellvis Wild strikes the perfect chord for fans of nudging wild multipliers, which can steadily increase the win potential in both the base game and free spins. With a slick rock and roll aesthetic combined with the star power of scatters and respins, Hellvis Wild showcases a rocking combo of entertaining features that players can jam along to.”
