An introduction

Hacksaw Gaming's Cubes is a Pocketz Series game. The goal of this cluster-win game is to land shapes that consist of five or more colours. Whenever you win, the grid expands, which can create even bigger clusters. Players have the chance to win free games in the bonus feature, and the top win is x3000!

Graphics & Theme

Similar to Tetris, this simple cube game features brightly-coloured blocks of smaller cubes in a 5x5 format. It is possible to extend this layout up to 11x11. There are four different colours of cubes, including yellow, green, blue and purple. Against the black and anthracite background is a wallpaper featuring piles of cubes. There are times when a light animation flows across the background, highlighting the edges of the cubes. There is a staccato soundtrack accompanying the game.

Top Wins + Minimum & Maximum Bets

Minimum total wager: 0.20

Maximum total wager: 100.00

Top Wins: any colour cluster multiplied by total bet:

-25+ Matching Cubes = x 40

-20 - 24 = x 32

-15 - 19 = x 24

-12 - 14 = x 9

-10 - 11 = x 4

Grid that expands

Every time the cubes spin, they are jumbled up and land in a different order. It is a win if five or more cubes of the same colour are connected in a cluster; additionally, it triggers two lines and two columns of cubes. When that happens for the first time, the grid becomes 7x7 instead of 5x5. In the event that this increases the size of the cluster, the grid will expand again, up to a maximum of 11x11 or until the cluster stops growing. Once the cluster size is determined, the player is awarded the win.

Multiplier in the middle

It will always display a multiplier symbol in the center of the cube. Therefore, clusters that include this central cube will have multiplied wins. Multipliers are determined by the number of cubes in a cluster (for example, five cubes for a x5 multiplier), with a maximum multiplier of x22. During free spins, this does not apply.

Spins for free

In order to trigger the free spins feature, five different-coloured clusters must appear on the reels. One letter from the word CUBES will be highlighted for each cluster. The game will continue until the grid has reached its maximum size and a new game has begun. A free spins feature will be activated if all five letters of the word CUBES are highlighted. In advance of the game, players choose from six boxes with question marks on a bonus pick-screen. In addition to revealing the number of free spins (up to ten), this will also reveal the color that will be sticky during the feature. As soon as the feature begins, the background turns green in various shades. If there are any 'Sticky' colour cubes, they will stay in place for the duration of the feature. Additionally, the grid will remain the same size for the remainder of the feature if it enlarges. In addition to winning free spins, free spins also include the Colour Burst feature, which pays out x2500 for a cluster of 70 cubes.

The Verdict

This retro-style game in the popular Pocketz Series isn't your typical slot machine. In fact, there are no reels and no paylines. We love the atypical format of the game whereby wins come from landing clusters of coloured blocks. The myriad of bonus features include an Expanding Grid, Middle Multiplier, Sticky Cubes and Free Spins to ensure an almost non-stop run of action. A top win of x3000 is pretty decent.

You can enjoy the game for free here at Slots Temple, where we host thousands of slot games in demo mode. This includes a good choice of other Hacksaw Gaming demo slots. If you like the setup of Cubes, why not give the Strolling Stax slot a try? It's another light-hearted nostalgia-inducing game.
