Hand of the Devil Introduction
Fancy your chances against the king of Hell? Then take a look at Hand of the Devil, a pokie from Bally which sees you matched against Lucifer himself for a game of five-card draw. Bally are one of the leading manufacturers of land-based casino games as well as online pokies, and their name on a game is really a mark of quality for experienced gamers, total beginners and everyone in between.
As with many of Bally’s other games, Hand of the Devil is available to play for free at Online Pokies 4 U, just like the hundreds of other free pokies we have on the site.
You might be playing a pokie, but poker is the name of the game here as the devil himself challenges you to a hand. The reels are set against a glowing red background which evokes your potential fiery doom, and bats occasionally fly across the screen ominously. Funky guitar riffs accompany each spin, and when winning combinations are hit, the symbols that are included are highlighted by a flaming border.
The symbols bring out both the card game and the setting, as 9, 10, J, Q, K and A are used for the low-value symbols, and devilish representations of the four suit symbols make up the higher value icons - for example, the heart comes complete with demonic wings and two tridents, while the diamond is furnished with horns and a pointed tail.
Hand of the Devil is a five-reel pokie with three rows and 30 paylines, with betting starting at just $0.01 per line and ranging all the way up to $10 per line. The game also adds on an extra bonus bet of ten times your bet per line, meaning that your maximum total stake here is actually $400. In this game, you’ll find both a wild symbol and a scatter symbol to enhance your spins.
The wild symbol is a fiery “wild” logo which can appear stacked on the reels and substitute for any other symbols, apart from the scatter, to help you make up winning combinations. The scatter symbol is represented by the Hand of the Devil logo, and it can trigger both the bonus feature of the game and a big jackpot. If you’re lucky enough to land five of a kind of these scatter logos, you’ll win a huge prize of ten times your total stake.
Three or more of the scattered Hand of the Devil logos will trigger this bonus feature, in which you’ll be awarded ten free spins as well as the normal winnings that number of scatter symbols would have triggered. Before the free spins begin, the devil randomly selects a multiplier that the bonus round will be subject to.
New symbols of five-card draw hands will also appear on the reels, acting as the wild symbol in the bonus round and adding in new multipliers. If you land any of these, they will lock in place, giving you more opportunities for big wins.
