Devour the Weak Slot Review 2023
Devour the Weak from Yggdrasil Gaming shows us the demonic wrath of dark magic in what looks to be a highly volatile and rather exciting instalment.
As the name suggests, Devour the Weak is all about swallowing up low symbols from the reels, and Hexed Symbols add to Devour the Weaks appeal further with Wilds to amp up the excitement.
Devour the Weak isn’t for the faint of heart. Can you handle the heat?
Devour the Weak – The Base Game and Features
Devour the Weak is a 5 reel slot with up to 243 ways to win.
To form a win, you’ll need to connect at least 3 of any symbol from left to right on adjacent reels, starting from the leftmost reel. After every winning combination, all winning symbols are destroyed alongside symbols of equal or lesser value to the winning ones.
New symbols fill the empty spaces, which gives you another chance to win.
To enhance gameplay comes the Multiplier feature. Destroying 6 symbols earns a bigger multiplier.
Every regular symbol in the game has a special Hexed variant. When the hexed version of the symbol is destroyed, it leaves a Wild in its place.
If 6 Hexed Symbols are destroyed, then 10 Free Spins are awarded.
Devour the Weak – Free Spins
As mentioned, 6 destroyed Hexed Symbols grant entry into Free Spins with 10 Free Spins as standard.
Each Hexed Symbol collected above the sixth in a single cascade will award an additional +1 Free Spin.
During Free Spins, if a Hexed Symbol lands in the middle three reels, it will turn into a Wild. A special symbol may also land on the 5th reel, granting +1 Free Spin. More than one of these may land at once.
Activating the Golden Bet Feature gives players an additional 1 out of 6 Hexed Symbols towards Free Spins and provides a higher chance of landing Hexed Symbols.
Activating this costs 1.5x the regular bet.

Devour the Weak – Our Verdict
Devour the Weak is hellish in all of the right ways. It can chew you up and spit you into the forgotten depths of the underworld, or you can arise as the biggest demon there is with unholy wins to accompany your imposing underworld position.
Not everybody loves the satanic theme, but you can’t argue that it makes a statement, and it draws you closer. To us, it just stands out from the fluffy and light-hearted themes, but does Devour the Weak have more than just impressive visuals to further its appeal?
Those impressed with the game so far will be pleased to know that it performed consistently well for us. It’s not absolutely packed with features, but the Multiplier and Hexed Symbols are more than enough to get the blood pumping. It could be said that Devour the Weak is effective minimalism at its finest. There are no grandiose bells and whistles and the features that it does have certainly aren’t unique to Devour the Weak, but it just feels very solid, very capable and always on the brink of excitement.
At its best, Devour the Weak can spew out molten hot wins of up to 10,000x. We’d have liked to have seen it a little higher, but it’s certainly not low.
Overall, Devour the Weak stands out to us as one to watch as a deadly slot in all the right ways.
