Everyone has tried their luck with solving a Rubik’s Cube at some point in their lives. The puzzle has captivated many people, to different degrees. Some have tried it a few times and moved on to other matters. Others have mastered the puzzle, and they are able to solve it with their eyes closed. No matter what group you belong to, Playtech’s Rubik’s Cube gives you an equal shot at solving its prize.
You should not expect a visual powerhouse from this slot. The animations are smooth, and the background is plain and clean. It is kept simple on purpose, using cubes as its theme. Rather fitting, given that it is all about a Rubik’s Cube. Still, we quite liked some details in the background image. For example, the fact the whole this is happening on an elevated platform with stage lights.
Symbol designs follow a similar theme of plain and simple. They consist of coloured cubes and playing card royals. While they are not very interesting visually, how they interact with the Rubik’s Cube above the reels is fascinating. There is no dedicated Wild icon. A partially solved cube puzzle is the Scatter, and can only appear on reels one and five.
A Rubik’s Cube can be seen above the reels. This is not just for show – it has an actual impact on the game. Every spin, the cube will reveal a different combination of colours. The middle three reels match up to the Rubik’s Cube above the board. If the colours on the cube and the second, third and fourth reel match up, that symbol will turn Wild. It is a rather interesting special feature and one we have not seen yet at Indian Casino Club.
What happens if the Rubik’s Cube is solved – that is, all nine positions on the cube show the same colour? In that case, that same colour on the middle three reels will become a multiplier Wild. The multiplier value depends on the value of the colour. White is the least valuable colour, and so only comes with a 2x multiplier. Meanwhile, red as the most valuable colour has the highest multiplier, which is 7x.
Finally, land two Scatters on reels one and five at the same time to win free spins. This will lead you to a separate screen, where you can choose one of six free spins rounds. You can choose between more spins and less valuable Wild multiplier, or fewer spins and more valuable Wild multipliers. Your options are as follows.
Your chosen sticky multiplier Wilds will remain active for the duration of free spins.
This Playtech release comes with a five-reel, three-row playing field with 25 fixed paylines. The top prize you can win in Rubik’s Cube is 2,275x your total stake, which fits well with its medium-high variance. The RTP for this slot is 96.1%, which is just slightly above average when compared to other slots.
Interesting special features are the primary reason we think you should try this game out. We thought we would get bored of the gimmick eventually, but we never got to that point. Instead, it kept providing occasional Wilds, which led to some cool wins here and there. Once you add free spins and multiplier Wilds, it becomes even more exciting. If you like interesting slot special features, this title should 100% be on your radar!
