Hardwell, an Electric New Slot from Novomatic

Written by Daniel Wilson

Hardwell is one of the most famous electro house DJs in the world, and this slot is made to honour his work, as well as the culture of electro music parties in general. The game opens with a long intro of Hardwell rocking the crowd with his upbeat house remixes, and these remain the most dominant musical element of the slot. Let your hips move to the music as you spin this neon-coloured beauty!

It is a simple 5×3 slot with 25 playlines made by Novomatic. It offers some neat bonuses and an ultra-lucrative super spin feature.


In addition from putting Hardwell as the central figure of the game, the theme also incorporates all the elements of the contemporary electro house parties, from the sound system to the manic crowd!

Gameplay and Layout

The reels softly glow with colourful neon lights, and all the symbols inside are edged with neon. The slot sits up on the stage behind the DJ decks, with the crowd dancing in the background. There is smoke going off beside the slot, and your spins add a dynamic and exciting element to the party – especially when you hit a winning combination!

The minimum bet for this game is $0.25 and the maximum is $50. The biggest possible win in coins is 125,000, and the quoted RTP is 96%, which is pretty good.

Special Features

Super Spins

Start the “Lock and Spin” game by activating the Super Spin Feature. During this game, the symbols will start locking one by one, and if you manage to lock 8 to 15 Golden Discs, the spinning stops and they’ll all convert into one of the regular symbols: that’s a big payout just waiting to happen!

Bonus Symbols

Bonus Symbols are located on the reels 1, 3, and 5. If you land 2 or 3 during a single spin, you’ll activate the free spins and Reel Upgrade feature! Free spins can be retriggered, but the original reward is as follows:

  • 1 Bonus symbol – 5 free spins, 1 reel upgrade
  • 2 Bonus symbols – 10 free spins, 2 reel upgrades
  • 3 Bonus symbols – 20 free spins, 3 reel upgrades

Reel Upgrades Feature

Before starting your free spins, you can choose one of the 4 mystery icons offered and unlock one of the following reel upgrades:

  • Upgrade 1 – Multiplier (2x, 3x, 4x, 5x or 10x)
  • Upgrade 2 – Win both ways
  • Upgrade 3 – Random wild symbol appears on the third reel
  • Upgrade 4 – Wild symbols expand

Our Verdict

Hardwell is obviously targeted at electro house music fans, particularly Hardwell lovers, but it works for all audiences. The music is catchy and upbeat, while the Reel Upgrades make for a very interesting player experience. Two thumbs up from us!
