The underworld beckons as you hunt monsters who come in all sizes – as single reels or able to cover all 6 reels at once. Dare you enter the Hades Gigablox slot?
Yggdrasil knows how to create a good slot game theme, and this Ancient Greek God is both classic and a little rock n roll. Cocky and covered in blue flames, Hades sits by the side of the reels giving you little comments of encouragements and jokes.
Because who doesn’t love having characters on screen?
The low paying symbols are simply card-based suits, but the high paying ones are where someone went really creative with their nightmares. Some of these monsters look like they could have been spawned nowhere else but in hell, and you’ll be glad when Hades hunts them down for big wild wins.
This isn’t the first Yggdrasil game with the Gigablox mechanics – as we write in the Lucky Neko slot review who did it first, it’s a clever twist on the conjoined reels of the Twin Spin Deluxe slot machine.
At any point anything from 2 to 6 reels join up, but instead of the same symbols, you spin mega symbols – symbols that are anything from 2×2 to 6×6 size.
Now we’ve played for hours, and never seen a 6×6 mega symbol, but that’s to be expected. Genuinely, getting a 3×3 Gigablox symbols is exciting enough as with 6 reels it’s how you’ll land the bigger wins.
You don’t have traditional wild symbols, but every once in a while Hades will jump on screen and fight the high paying symbols and turn them wild. Sometimes. It’s fun to watch.
At the end of the day, what you are looking for is the Hades Gigablox slot free spins. Because when you catch 5 or more scatters, you’ll get one free spin for every scatter.
Then Hades goes on the hunt on every spin and tries to give you as many wilds as you can. Transform 10 symbols and you’ll get a 2x multiplier. Continue to transform high paying symbols into wilds and you might get up to 10x multipliers.
That’s how you get the top win of over 11,000x your bet, but the problem comes with the fact that 5 spins aren’t quite enough to get you there, and the bonus games don’t come quite often enough.
But even without the multipliers, getting 1,000x your bet is well within your range, especially if this Hades Gigablox slot gives you a whole load of wilds over all 50 paylines. You’ll need patience, but this trip to hell isn’t one for the faint of heart.

Gigablox: Reels can join up and blocks of 2x2, 3x3, 4x4, 5x5 and 6x6 symbols will spin and land on the reels. The bigger the blocks and the bigger the wins.
Wild Hunt: During any spin in the base game, Hades can fight all high paying symbol to try and convert them into wilds. If he wins, that symbol will turn wild for that turn.
Scatters and Free Spins: Land 5 or more scatter symbols to trigger free spins. Each scatter you get on the reels adds +1 additional free spin. During the bonus games, Hades fights the symbols on each spin and every time a symbol turns wilds it will potentially increase the multiplier counter.
Here's how many multipliers you'll get depending on converted symbols:
Gigablox that are converted into wilds are counted by their size - so a 2x2 gigablox will count as 4 symbols towards the counter. The maximum multiplier is 10x.
We like how Gigablox slots work, and so we had no problem playing on this volatile game which has a top win of 11,129x your bet.
Watching those reel spin those big symbols and then having the god of the underworld sitting by cheering and jeering, does create a little thrill that is hard to beat.
The Hades Gigablox slot can be a little frustrating, mostly because the free spins hit so rarely - maybe once in 400 spins, and even when they do, it doesn't mean you'll get much more than in the base game.
Still, the good news is that all the main features are found in the base game, meaning big wins can happen at any point, just not quite as big as with the rare free spin multipliers.
