Ante Bet

Before you can begin spinning, you will be given the option to activate the Ante Bet feature. Choosing to activate this feature will increase your current bet by 50%.

Once active, more Scatters appear on the reels, meaning that your chances of triggering the Free Spins round are naturally higher. (RTP 96.05%)

Golden Wilds

During both the base game and Free Spins round, Golden Wilds in the form of records can land across the reels.

Each time a Golden Wild lands in view, it will reveal a Multiplier of x1, triggering a Respin mode. All Golden Wilds will remain in view during this time, nudging down 1 position towards the bottom of the reel.

With each nudge, the Multiplier on the Golden Wild will increase by +x1, paying out wins in between Repsins. Respins will end when the Golden Wild symbol reaches the bottom position on its respective reel.

If more than 1 Golden Wild is involved in the same winning combination, both their Multipliers will be added together and applied.

Hellvis Wild Free Spins

Landing 3, 4, or 5 Scatters across the reels during the base game triggers the Free Spins round, awarding 7, 11, and 15 Free Spins respectively.

During Free Spins, Golden Wilds will appear with a Multiplier value according to a progressive feature above each reel. Each time a Golden Wild nudges down, the Multiplier above its respective reel will increase by +x1 for the remainder of the Free Spins round.

Landing 3, 4, or 5 Scatters during this time will award an additional +7, +11, and +15 Free Spins respectively.

Hellvis Wild: Our Verdict

Hellvis Wild blew our minds (and our eardrums), and not just with his skills on the guitar. Tapping into their darker side, Pragmatic Play has done a brilliant job with the graphics, rocking sound effects, and overall design, but did they pull out all the stops in gameplay?

The Golden Wilds feature is not quite as desirable in the base game as we had liked, but this quickly changes in Free Spins. Although a simple feature, Golden Wilds can deliver a certain amount of potential in the base game if multiple Golden Wilds land at the same time, but they would need to start higher up the reels if you are to see any action.

The Free Spins round amplifies the Golden Wilds feature. Each time a Golden Wild lands in view, the reels will collect their Multiplier values so that the next time they hit, they will pack an even bigger punch than the time before.

It seems that Pragmatic Play didn’t venture too far into the darkness, sticking firmly to their safety net of 5,000x for the max win cap. All in all, Hellvis Wild is a great game to rock out to from time to time, but if it’s potential you’re after, you may want to change your tune and look elsewhere.
