Breaking the tradition of slot appearance, Cubes from Hacksaw Gaming provides a visually simplistic design with innovative gameplay. Bizarre out of the box, Cubes will turn many heads with its playability and the reward of 3,167x the bet.

Betting Options and Bonus Features

Many players will find Cubes resemble an odd hybrid of Rubik's aesthetics and Tetris’s matching color gameplay, which isn’t far off the mark. Starting on a humble 5x5 grid, Cubes utilizes the cluster mechanic, where players can land at least five similar symbols vertically or horizontally to begin reaping the rewards. With every win, the entire board shuffles, increasing the size to 6x6, 7x7, and eventually to 11x11 - the Cubes’ final form. All symbols pay the same, capping at 40x the bet for a 25+ symbols cluster.

Regarding the math model, Cubes provides an RTP of 96.35%, which is way higher than the average standard. What is even more intriguing is its medium volatility, which stands to make things easier on the way to reaching the jackpot of 3,167x the bet.

Despite its uncomplicated appearance, Cubes provides three unique features to retain players’ interest far past expectations. The first feature is the Middle Multiplier. The “X” takes a permanent spot in the middle of the grid. Whenever it takes part in a winning combination, it reveals a multiplier that is applied immediately. Furthermore, the number of cubes gets added to the total multiplier value, up to a maximum of 22x the wager.

To activate the Free Spin feature, players can land five different combinations of colors, for which the game will reward players with 10 Free Spins. The color combinations used to access the bonus round will appear highlighted on the screen. Subsequent cubes of the same colors will become sticky during the Free Spin round. Additionally, the grid size does not reset.

The Colour Blast feature, exclusive to the Free Spin bonus round, provides a simple cube-collecting mechanic where players can gather 70 cubes in the bonus round for the reward of 2,500x the bet.

Roshtein’s Take

There is something magical about games with simple design but outstanding gameplay mechanics. The Cubes’ features play so well together and create a smooth gameplay experience. It is satisfying and pleasing to line up cubes for a win, waking the nostalgic feeling related to the classic game of Tetris. The only drawback I found was the humble jackpot. Apart from that, Cubes is a fun, chill slot  and a perfect choice for those who want something very different from classic slot standards.
