The theme of the Hand of the Devil slot game, as suggested by the title, is a trip to the underworld and playing a game with the Devil. The background of the game is a mix of black and red, the backdrop behind the reels is full of flames leaping up from the depths of hell, and a bat flies occasionally across the screen.
The word Hand in the title refers to a hand of cards, and the game is based around the symbols and numbers in a deck of cards, and the devil’s tail is wrapped around five playing cards forming a Royal Flush. The symbols of each suit in the deck are dressed up in devil related accessories. The Diamonds symbol has a pair of horns and a tail, the Heart has wings holding two devil’s forks. The sound effects in the background are fitting, being a drumming sound together with a commentary provided by the devil.
Hand of the Devil Launched for Halloween
Hand of the Devil has five reels and thirty pay lines, and is a game produced by the developer Bally Technologies. You have to land consecutive symbols from left to right on an active pay line, and to achieve a win you will have to find three of the same symbol on that pay line. The biggest wins are obtained by finding five of the same symbol together in a row. The suit symbols, Diamonds, Hearts, Spades and Clubs are the most valuable symbols in Hand of the Devil, and the Ace and King are the next most valuable symbols. Symbols with the lowest value are the Nine, Ten, Jack and Queen.
Wilds and Scatters in Flames
The Wild symbol in Hand of the Devil is very obvious, as it is the word WILD set against a backdrop of flames. The Wild can become stacked, and take up an entire reel. The Wild can substitute for any other symbol in a winning combination, but only appears on reels 2, 3 , 4 and 5.
The Scatter symbol is the Hand of the Devil Logo, and it can appear anywhere. It will pay out a prize for two or more landing on a pay line, but if you get five Scatters on a pay line you will be awarded a really big win. This symbol also activates the free spins bonus feature if you find three or more appearing across any of the reels.
When this bonus feature starts, you will see five sets of playing cards in different colours, each set showing a different multiplier, between 1 and 5. The Devil himself will choose one of these suits at random, and this will be set as the Wild symbol for the entire free spins round. You will be granted ten free spins, but if the Wild symbol appears on the reels during any of the free spins, it will stay in place for the entire round. As this Wild is also stacked, you could win a good number of payouts. Each win that you get in this round using a Wild symbol, will be multiplied by the amount that was selected in the beginning.
There is an autoplay feature in this game. The Hand of the Devil will give you lots of entertainment, and the chance of some good wins.
