We love getting news that famous IGT slot machines will be making it's way from Vegas to our favourite online and mobile casinos. And this one is a doozy.
Not everyone will be familiar with the Hexbreaker 2 slot. And that’s ok.
Because, to be honest, we weren’t either. Hey, we can’t try every single slot in the world, despite our best efforts.
What we were familiar with is the slot that inspired Hexbreaker 2 (a good one), and the fact that it has one of the most unusual themes in gaming.
If all of that doesn’t encourage you to read on, then how about the fact that this continue’s IGT fail safe tradition of giving you exactly what you want?
Have we got your attention now?
Hexbreaker, the first, was a hugely popular simple slot machine. But it was a huge gamble to begin with.

Why, because of the theme. Someone, somewhere, at IGT said “hey, you know what would make a really good theme? bad luck symbols!”
And apparently, someone else agreed, because what you got was black cats, broken mirrors, upside down horse shoes… and players love it!
Still, as time went on, so did newer more interesting games and Hexbreaker was left at the back for those who were feeling nostalgic.
One of the said ‘new’ games that everyone loved was the Fire Opals. Building up from the success of the Siberian Storm online slot, Fire Opals changed the format a little, whilst keeping the quick succession of wins and stacked wilds.
It was so popular in fact, that IGT decided to try something new. Put together the mechanics of Fire Opals, with the odd theme from the original Hexbreaker.
And so, the Hexbreaker 2 slot was born. It was an instant hit.
“Hexbreaker 2 incorporates symbols and art that are typically representative of bad luck, but has the unique reputation of being the game to play when players want to turn around their fortunes.” IGT statement.
Partly it’s because of the gameplay. Hexbreaker 2 is one of the friendlier IGT games, meaning it’s a well balanced machine.
But mostly it’s because gamblers (us included) have a way of turning bad luck into a bad day, and good luck into legends.
And over the years, the fact that this slot machine has ‘broken’ streaks of bad luck has been passed down through whispers and youtube videos, giving this machine an almost mythical reputation.
Do we believe it in our sensible heads? No, probably not.
Are we now glad that come the 29th of October we will get a chance to see if, on a bad day, Hexbreaker 2 can turn our luck around when playing on mobile casinos? Hell yes.
Whaaat? We are only human.
Ultimately, if we take the reputation aside, what we are getting is a copy of the Fire Opals online slot.
So what’s the excitement all about if we, technically, already have this casino game?
The fact that Fire Opals is online only. We don’t have a version to play on mobile. Except now, on the 29th of October, we will.
Even online, it simply means you now get two games that you can use to break a bad streak of luck. And if one isn’t working, you can always jump to the other.
No. What’s wrong with you?
Ok yes, we have gotten quite a few 720 ways to win slot games over the course of the year. But you forget we’ve gotten just as many totally different and wonderful games that aren’t.
But, we’ve got to be honest, some of our favourite 2015 IGT slots have been 720 ways to win with the MultyWay Extra feature.
And it doesn’t make them all the same. Each have their own unique features that make them fun in their own way, even if sometimes that’s just a different theme.
Most of the good IGT casinos will get this one out as soon as possible on the 29th of October.
Our recommendation would be Casumo casino. Partly because they put out new games as soon as they are out, but mostly because they have a huge £€1,200 + 200 free spins welcome package that will help you play on all those big IGT, WMS and NetEnt games.
However, if you are looking to experience all that a 720 ways to win slot has to offer before the end of the month, then we’d got a secret recommendation.
It’s not well known, it’s not even a Vegas slot. In fact IGT made it especially for mobile phone casinos only, and it’s the brilliant Sushi Yum Yum Extra Wasabi slot machine.
