Hex slot by Relax Gaming is pretty typical of their recent fayre to be honest. A volatile game, unspectacular in graphics and theme but playable with big potential rewards. So yes, you have maths here like that of Volatile Vikings slot or the more humorous Top Dawgs slot and this pair, along with Spirit of the Beast slot seem to have been made with streamers and big wins in mind. So reasonable artwork that's not childish, creepy music and sound effects and a witch's study behind the reels is what we get here. So can these potions grow our bankroll here or will it be hexed for evermore?
On the reels...
So we have 5 reels and 3 rows with 243-ways to win on Hex slot. The symbols can appear stacked with the single Wild Skull on reels the best 5-of-a-kind pay at 20x bet then Ram Skull 10x, Doll 5x, Snake 3x, Tarot Cards or Chicken Claw 2x with five Potion Vials at 1.2 down to 0.5x for each full way. You do get a couple of modifiers here by way of a Silver or Gold Sorceress which can land on reel 5 only. You will notice that on each spin a random number of symbols will land in a blue frame. If Silver Sorceress lands, these all transform to the same random symbol, if Gold Sorceress lands, they all go Wild.
You need 3, 4 or 5 or more Spell Book scatters to earn 7, 10 or 15 spins respectively. No retriggers but you will earn +1 spin for each scatter during the round. Now any highlighted symbol positions activated by the Sorceresses will turn sticky throughout and not only that, you play on 4-rows and thus 1024-ways! So your Silver and especially Gold Sorceress become really important - 25,000x is the win cap here. You can buy the round in some jurisdictions for 100x bet.
Hex slot has a good 96.43% RTP but using the bonus buys only raises this to 96.58%. The game is pleasant to watch, quite good regarding the sounds and music but your decent base game hits will require a Sorceress if the truth be told. The bonus is not too difficult to land but is very volatile, yields of 10-40x are very common and it would take several bonuses to hit over 100x in my experience. This is because the game reserves some huge pays if you're lucky in the free spins and the poor ones pay for them! So as long as you accept the maths of the Hex game and prepare yourself for this fact, you may find yourself falling under its spell too...
