Enter the Spooky Voodoo Shop
The action is set back in time, in 1921, in the middle of Mardi Gras celebrations, straight into the French Quarters in New Orleans. At the end of a dark and twisted street lies the spooky Voodoo Shop. There, a former priest is busy casting his magic spells towards the Mardi Gras celebrations. His goal? To bewitch the musicians and transform the busy streets with a magic ritual never seen before.
Yggdrasil’s head of product and programs Stuart McCarthy expressed the company’s delight regarding the new partnership with Peter & Sons, describing the fresh slot as “another fantastic creation.” He added that while the theme of the new slot may fall outside regular Yggdrasil content, the move was meant to introduce fresh concepts to the standard library, while sweeping players off their feet with “the immersive location.”
Peter & Sons business development manager Yann Bautista also called Voodoo Hex “a spooky creation” that is prone to present a “new side to our thrilling games portfolio” developed together via Yggdrasil’s popular YG Masters program. Peter & Sons joined the program in October 2020.
Mystery Stack Respins and Free Spins
The game features wild symbols that can randomly pop up on all reels. When a pair of full reels is entirely stacked with the same symbol, layers get to experience Mystery Stack Respins. These respins will be triggered until there are no more mystery symbols left. The respins also feature a progressive multiplier that starts at 1x. With each new win, the progressive multiplier will go up by one unit.
Players can also benefit from Free Spins triggered whenever a scatter symbol lands in the middle of a reel. Voodoo Hex also comes with immediate prizes once coin symbols are revealed. This occurs no matter if the Coin symbols are located on a payline or outside of it.
During the Free Spins bonus round, Mystery Stacks are triggered at a higher frequency. At the same time, the increasing multiplier will not reset for the duration.
In some jurisdictions, players will get the chance to jump into Free Spins mode using the dedicated Bonus Buy feature.
