Voodoo Hex

Voodoo Hex

Voodoo Hex is probably one of the most innovative online slots we’ve reviewed in a while. It’s not everyday when players (and us) are transported to 1921 New Orleans where a priest in a Voodoo Shop is casting spells towards people celebrating Mardi Gras. I mean come on - who comes up with a game like this?

The answer to that question is of course Peter & Sons. Their talented team is always thinking outside the box and players are pampered with versatile and interesting slots. In addition to having a great story, Voodoo Hex is also beautifully designed and has very intriguing special features.

Once you open the game, you will immediately sense the vibe. We are definitely not standing on the main street (instead this seems to be a very spooky alley away from the party) and there is definitely something strange going on. The mystical French quarters is a perfect setting to this game and the atmosphere is just increased with the background music and sound effects.

How it Works?

Voodoo Hex comes with a 3x3 game screen and 5 paylines. There are always nine symbols on the reels and you are looking to score three similar symbols on at least one payline. The wins are paid from the left to the right. In Voodoo Hex the minimum bet while playing is $0,10 and the maximum bet is $50.

The highest paying symbols are the different characters: the masked woman, snake, the scary looking head and the old doll. When three symbols appear on the same payline, you can win up to 5x your bet. The low paying symbols on the other hand include four different tarot cards. In addition to these basic symbols, you will also discover a wild symbol (potion) and scatter (the priest himself).

The maximum win is 9800x your bet size. This means that if you are spinning with the maximum bet, you claim a whopping $490,000.

Voodoo Hex also comes with a bonus buy feature that allows you to buy yourself a direct entry to the free spins round. The cost for 7 spins is 52x your bet, for 15 spins 111x your bet and for random amount 70x your bet size.

Voodoo Hex RTP% (Return-to-Player)

Voodoo Hex comes with a pretty standard Peter & Sons RTP: 96%. It’s not their best one since we have seen slots with up to 97% RTP but still good and fair enough. Even though the average RTP in online slots is 95% - we still thing any self-respecting game needs to have at least a 96% return to player percentage. So points for that!

Voodoo Hex is a medium-high volatility slot. This means that the wins are slightly larger than average but you might need to wait a little bit for them to emerge. It is quite rare to see low volatility games anymore since that usually translates to boring. So again, Peter & Sons is doing a great job.

Special Features

Voodoo Hex Free Spins

Let’s dive in to find out what kind of special features Voodoo Hex has. Of course you will find traditional wilds that will substitute for any other symbol and therefore create bigger wins. In addition to this, both the base game and free spins round have a feature called Mystery Stack respin.

When ever two reels are filled with the same symbol, the feature activates. All the symbols used triggering the feature will turn into mystery stack and the player is awarded with a respin. Once the spin ends, the all the mystery stacks reveal symbols that might be anything from the standard symbols to coins and multipliers. And if the respin results in a win, you will get another set of mystery stacks. You will also claim a +1x multiplier for the next round. The Mystery Stack feature goes on as long as the spin does not result in a win anymore.

Voodoo Hex also has a a Free Spins Game that triggers when one scatter symbols lands in the center of the grid. After that, you are randomly rewarded with either 7, 15 or a random number of spins. During the Free Spins Game the Mystery Stack feature actives more often and the multipliers are rewarded after every round.


We are really impressed with Voodoo Hex. Despite the fact that the game grid is slightly smaller than usual, the slot is still capable of handing out massive wins. Sometimes these 3x3 slots can be a little boring but not this one! There is some much action going during both the base game and the Free Spins Game that no one will get bored while playing this slot.

Our absolutely favorite feature is the Mystery Stack respin that activates pretty often and can last for quite some time - and produce nice wins. It is also very hard to criticize a game with a maximum win of $490,000.

But the best part of Voodoo Hex is still the overall design. The game looks so finished and cool and it is clear that a lot of people have spent a lot of time creating it. It is the perfect game for cold and dark autumn nights.
