Xpander Slot Review – Hacksaw Gaming
It has been a while since my last Hacksaw Gaming slot review, the last was for the game titled ‘Hop ‘N’ Pop‘. Which has a max win capped at 12,500x and a Free Spins feature with multipliers included. Today we are learning all about ‘Xpander’, which is available to play now across all sites.
This game is part of the Pocketz Series, which has many games included now. Visually this slot is very simplistic, with a city skyline for the background artwork and unique style. Symbols are represented by different fruits for low-paying and valuables such as diamonds as premium symbols.
Xpander has a setup of 7 reels by 7 rows, this includes cluster pays of 5 or more matching symbols. This slot is high variance with a set RTP of 96.25% and a max win capped at 10,000x. You can bet from £0.20 – £100.
Xpander Pay Table & Symbols
There are 13 symbols in total, this includes 4 low-paying symbols. These are represented by cherries, lemons, grapes, and watermelons. There are also 4 premium symbols, these are represented by bells, horseshoes, red sevens, and diamonds. In addition to these regular symbols is Free Spins scatter, wild, double up, grow, and 1up symbols. The wild symbol substitutes for all symbols except the Free Spins scatter. Double Up symbols will increase the size and value of the multiplier.
When the game starts there will be a multiplier on a random position on the reel set. Between each spin, this multiplier will move to a new position. If this multiplier overlaps with a winning cluster, the multiplier value will be multiplied by the win amount. All symbols part of winning clusters are removed and new symbols will fall in place to replace any empty spaces. Collect grow and double up symbols to expand the multiplier to 4×4 with a 128x value. Each time the multiplier grows in size a respin is awarded.
Landing 3 or more Free Spins scatter symbols during a base game spin will trigger the Free Spins feature. The maximum value for the multiplier is 4×4 with a value of 128x. You are awarded 5 Free Spins, landing 1up symbols will award additional spins. Double up and grow symbols work the way from the base game.
Overall, I think this slot is a well-made simplistic slot release and part of the popular pocketz series. With a max win capped at 10,000x and a range of unique symbols seen in both the base game & Free Spins feature.
