Devour the Weak Features and Gameplay
Wins are formed by landing three or more matching symbols on adjacent reels, starting from the leftmost reel on a dynamic 5×3 grid with 243 paylines.

A combination of five low-value symbols awards 0.3x to 1x, which increases to 1.5x to 2.5x a player’s bet for a combination of five high-value bonus symbols.Additional symbols include the Wild, represented by a golden skull, and purple orbs that can appear on symbols during any spins, indicating hexed symbols.The game features very high volatility, a maximum win of up to 10,000x a player’s bet, with a default RTP of 96%.Slot features:Dropdown – This feature is triggered after a winning combination, as mentioned earlier.
