Hook’s Heroes is a quirky new take on Captain Hook, and the tale of Peter Pan. This cartoony, incredibly designed slot is certainly original and creative, but how does it hold up in terms of gameplay? Net Entertainment have gone out of their way to make Hook’s Heroes’ gameplay structure quite different from the other games, and it really pays off. Bonuses are plentiful, and there’s a broad wagering range in this game.
Speaking of the gaming structure, Hook’s Heroes features a total of 5 reels, as you would expect. There are only 20 paylines on those reels, though, and you cannot adjust them. From a graphics perspective, the imagery is terrific, with plenty of stereotypical, and less conventional pirates littering the reels, alongside appropriately designed high playing card icons.
Coins Range:0.01 - 2.00
Free Spins/Multiplier Better:Yes
Hook’s Heroes isn’t going to cost you a bomb to play. Nor is it too cheap for you to win anything of significance. You can’t adjust the number of lines you play with, but coin denominations of 0.01 up to 1.00 can be selected. You can also bet as many as 20 coins per line in this game. If you’re on a budget, expect to pay at least 0.20 per spin on this slot. If you’ve got more cash to splash, Hook’s Heroes can cost you as much as 200.00 per spin, if you wish.
Hook’s Heroes is a non-progressive jackpot slot, and a fairly medium-low variance one at that. The bonus rounds in the game can see you win 45x, or even 180x your total bet. Net Entertainment have advertised the fact that you can win as much as 194,800 coins in total on this slot, though.
Hook’s Heroes features a handful of special features worked into its design. These are all triggered in the bonus round, though. Players can trigger the bonus round by landing 3 scatter icons in any position on the reels.
There are three bonus features in total. If you land 3 scatters, you can pick one of the features to use in your bonus round. Should you land 4 scatters on the reels, you’ll get to make 2 picks. If you land all five scatters, you can pick three times from the available bonus features. Now, let’s take a look at what you can choose from.
If you land the crocodile boy (which acts as another scatter), then you will automatically be given a single free spin, with one of the features mentioned below, randomly assigned to you.
The Fairy Feature is the first of the three bonus features you could pick. It allows you to play with between 2 and 5 random wild symbols, which is always going to be fun.
The second feature is the Mermaid Feature. This bonus allows you to pocket a 2x multiplier on all of your winnings, and if your winnings contain 1 or more wild symbols, this will increase your bonus multipliers to 4x their normal rate of pay.
Last, but certainly not least, is the Pirate Feature. This is the best bonus the game has to offer. Players won’t pocket wins via the symbols appearing on paylines, but by the number of symbols appearing on the reels. For instance, instead of pocketing a win for 3 pirates on a payline, you’ll bag wins for 8 pirates all over the screen.
Hook’s Heroes has been designed with mobile gameplay in mind. The slot is a part of the Net Ent Touch range, and can be played on virtually all iOS and Android compatible portable gaming devices.
Hook’s Heroes is a wonderfully tight ship. The symbols are very well-designed, the wagering range benefits all players. There is the potential to win vast sums of cash in this game, and it is mobile friendly. There are a surplus of bonus features, and you can select which ones you want to enjoy, based on how well you’ve done. When everything is weighed up in the Hook’s Heroes video slot, there is nothing that really disappoints. A few more wild symbols would perhaps be appreciated, but that is hardly a reason not to play this slot.
