September will live long in the memory for all at Hacksaw. The month saw the long-awaited release of Chaos Crew II - the sequel to our flagship 2020 creation featuring an electrifying bonus round, punk-flavored attitude, and epic soundtrack.
But before the ‘sequel of the year’ rolled off, we also found time to drop a mystical creation packing Hacksaw feature favorites and wrapped in some truly mesmerizing artwork.
Let’s delve into each in a little detail…
Let Densho Whisk you to an Idyllic Japanese Paradise
Released on the 7th day of the month, players were treated to a truly spectacular Asian adventure steeped in mysticism to kick off September in style.
Meaning ‘legacy’ in Japanese, Densho
comes with a 10,000x max win
and a familiar-looking 5-reel, 4-row setup, with expanding wild reels central to the action. Landing one of three Densho symbols - the Common, Rare, or Legendary, expands the reel where it landed if in doing so would create a win across one of the 10 paylines in play.
Densho symbols also come with multiplier values worth between 2x and 100x depending on the particular Densho that lands, which get applied to the wins they’re part of. Whenever multiple Densho symbols share the same winning payline, their values are added together first.
The action hots up in the Free Spins bonus round, which sees the introduction of Progression Trackers located above each reel. These indicate the quality of Densho symbol able to land on that reel. Progression Trackers get more powerful still in Super Free Spins, where they begin at level 2 - meaning players can expect Rare Densho symbols at the very least.

Cranky and Sketchy Return for More Multiplying Mayhem
Months, even years in the making, the sequel that the casino world had been talking about landed amid much fanfare on September 28th
, incorporating a wealth of new features while retaining the DNA of the much-loved original. Everything, from the paylines offered, to max payout, and bonus action, has been made bigger and better for this follow-up.
Now all grown up sporting full-length bodies and even Hacksaw swag, Chaos Crew II
’s pair of oddball protagonists - a frenzied feline named Cranky and a freakish skull known as Sketchy, are pivotal to much of the action. Flanking either side of the 5x5 game matrix, the duo show up throughout the game to boost your wins all the way up to 20,000x the bet
- Hacksaw’s BIGGEST EVER MAX WIN
and double that of the original. Also look out for the Epic Drop
triggering at random in the base game, which sees upwards of 5 special symbols drop in an instant, in a bite-sized version of the bonus game.
To the delight of slot fanatics, Hacksaw made the wise move to bring back the legendary bonus round from Chaos Crew the original, swelling the potential with the inclusion of sticky Cranky and Sketchies!
Beginning with 3 refilling lives, the aim is to land multiplying Cranky symbols with values up to 20x and adding Sketchy symbols that carry values worth a max 100x. When any of these types of symbols land (4 of each), their respective reel receives a multiplier boost, and your lives get reset to 3. Once your 3 lives have run out, the round is over, and the values atop each reel are totted up before they're multiplied by your stake to determine your eventual payout.
Saving the best for the last, Chaos Crew II’s Super Bonus comes with an industry-first ‘Best of Bonus
’ feature set to shake up the slot landscape. Kick off with an Epic Drop, and take three bites of the cherry, with your three results displayed on a leaderboard and your best one applied to your stake.
Also making a return for Chaos Crew II is the banging audio from the original that proved so popular it even prompted us to add the soundtrack to our Spotify account!
And as always, there’s a menu of Bonus Buy options on offer for players looking to dive head-first into the best of the action.
Chaos Crew II has already proved a smash hit across the community, and you can find out more about this blockbuster of a neon-soaked, gritty, back-street sequel here
