Cubes 2 Slot (Hacksaw Gaming)

Cubes 2 Slot (Hacksaw Gaming)With the release of the first sequel, developer Hacksaw Gaming is slowly but surely extending its portfolio.  Cubes 2 is the sequel to the extremely popular Cubes slot, which proved to be a big and successful hit for the developer.

There are no reels in Cubes and Cubes 2, instead, they're more like a cross between a grid slot and a Rubik's Cube combined with Tetris. 

However, as I later found out, this slot has a lot going on in it. I will share my review of Cube 2 below:

Game Set-Up

Hacksaw Gaming uses a 5x5 grid on a majority of their slots, and it is the same case with Cubes 2.

There are 11 pay-lines, and the slot offers several features that include Extra Spins, Increasing Multiplier, Pick Bonus, Sticky Symbols, Free spins bonus, Buy Feature, Cluster Pays, Colour Blast, and Expanding Reels.

Betting and Prizes

Cubes 2 offers a betting range of between $0.20 and $200 per spin. I love this range as it allows every level of player to enjoy the slot for real money.

I find it to be an extremely volatile slot but considering that it offers a fair RTP of between 96.35% and 96.33%, many players are comfortable tackling it.

The maximum amount that you can expect from this title is 11000x the stake per spin.

Cubes 2 Features

Cubes 2 accomplishes everything that the first title provided, but it does it in a far larger quantity. The objective is to connect at least five matching symbols of the same colour anywhere on the grid, which is the fundamental purpose of the game.

If a winning combination is achieved. the game area expands by one cube per direction, resulting in a 7 by 7 grid.

Repeated hits result in the grid expanding to its maximum size of 11x11 until the expansion stops. When no new winning combinations are formed, the grid is reset to its default size of 5x5 for the following spin.

Corner multipliers are the other great feature that I got to work with on this slot. A winning cluster containing one of the cubes ('X') is generated, and some icons in the winning cluster are represented by the letter 'X' in the winning cluster.

The final win is multiplied by this number, and the result is the total win. If a winning cluster is connected to more than one 'X,' the multipliers are multiplied together before being applied to the winning cluster.

Cubes 2's free spins feature is activated when five cluster wins consisting of different colours appear in a single spin sequence.

Initially, five free spins are granted, but before they can be played, several cubes display on the screen for players to choose from and then the bonus begins.

The disclosed numbers award free spins until the colour of your choice is revealed, at which point the picking game is completed and the free spins are triggered.

In the second bonus game, multi-Colour free spins, which is activated when all four corners of the grid are the same colour on the first spin, you will be awarded 15 free spins.

Once again, players must select cubes before the feature begins to determine the number of free spins awarded as well as the colours of the blocks that will be sticky.

Theme and Design

It’s a puzzle-themed slot and there are no many symbols apart from the 6 plain square tiles.


It may have seemed unlikely that Cubes would get a sequel, but after playing the second instalment, it becomes clear that the choice was made in the best interests of the game's fans. It’s a great title suitable for all levels of players.
