Cubes 2 Review
The infamous Cubes returns but with an even bigger impact this time. Developed by Hacksaw Gaming, Cubes 2 is a high volatility slot that plays on a grid of 5x5 with the Cluster Pays mechanic. Each time you land a win, the grid expands and even sticks during the free spins.
There's an impressive maximum win of 10,500x your stake in this slot which can be obtained through the free spins and Multi-Colour Free Spins. Join in the fun with this retro/gaming hybrid slot that you'll only find with Hacksaw Gaming.
Just like the original slot, this sequel features geometric shapes in the background but they are actually animated in and move with the slot in this one. As for the cubes, they are exactly the same in terms of design but they are more polished in this slot.
Unlike the first game, the music in this one is more towards a soft beat that you would expect to hear as a pre-recorded track on a keyboard. It's still relaxing but it's more of an urban beat this time. The xylophone returns for free spins but combined with the soft beat making it more exciting. Overall, the design of this slot is better than the original, but not by much.
As mentioned, this slot contains the Cluster Pays mechanic which matches up 5 or more symbols to form a win. These clusters actually climb and expand the grid when they do - but they don't stick unless it's during free spins.
In true Hacksaw Gaming style, all the menus are at the bottom of the screen with the spin button, autospin and bet level just at the right. If you need any more settings, then you can find them to the left of the bar with the paytable and further settings.
Cubes 2 is a high volatility slot with a solid RTP of 96.30%. In terms of the maximum win, you can see wins of up to 10,500x your stake but only during the free spins round with multipliers.
Throughout our gameplay, we found that it was fairly common to trigger wins, but we did struggle with the free spins mode. It took us over 300 spins to trigger it, which is something to bear in mind.
There's no denying that Cubes 2 is a definite improvement on the original slot, but there wasn't anything wrong with the original. We do wish that they would've perhaps incorporated a new type of feature other than free spins, but the new addition of Multi-Colour Free Spins is welcomed.
The only downside with the original slot was the low maximum payout, but this definitely improves on that. If you are going to try out one of the Cubes slot, then check out Cubes 2 and it's better in every way.
