Hook's Heroes Review

5 / 5
Maximum Jackpot: 2,600

Overview

We haven’t seen a poor release yet from the seemingly all-mighty NetEnt. Hook’s Heroes is their September release that is based around a pirate theme, but in a rather weird way. Although it has a cartoon design the characters don’t appear to be cute, instead they portray features that one could find in some of Disney’s villains for example. But these pirates are not real ones, in fact they are just part of a school play. They may not be the prettiest looking characters, but they will surely make your day. The background scenery changes as you hit different features of the game. That makes it look dynamic and it can be quite difficult to follow each and every segment of the video animations. To spice up the childish pirate theme during some parts of the game there’s a child making annoying sounds in the background. NetEnt really made an effort to include any every possible situation a player would expect from a slot game based around this theme.

Data

Hook’s Heroes has 5 fast spinning reels and when they are not spinning you can see 3 rows of symbols. It offers a maximum of 20 paylines, but you can reduce the number of activated lines if you will. You can adjust the coin value as well between the standard NetEnt range of 0.01 and 1.00. Once you set the coin value you can decide how many of them you’re going to place per activated payline. In terms of currency the minimum bet a player can place is €0.20 and the maximum is €200 per one single spin. 

Features

All symbols show an animation whenever they’re part of a winning line. There are both Scatters and Wilds that are not only rewarding, but are funny in the same time. The Scatter symbol is represented with the child with crocodile suit on. Once you hit 3, 4 or 5 of them you are rewarded with an adequate number of Free Spins. The Wild Symbol is none other but “Captain Hook” himself. It substitutes for any other symbol except the scatter. It is also a crucial element of one of the special features that can be found in the game.

Special Features

Few new features were brought to the scene with the introduction of Hook’s Heroes. The names depict objects/creatures that could be found along sea coasts like the mystic mermaids, fairies and pirates as well. We start off with the Mermaid Feature which multiplies your winnings by a factor of 2, or if a Wild Symbol is part of the winning combination the winnings become multiplied by 4. The Fairy Feature places 2 to 5 randomly placed Wild Symbols. Getting few of this in line can take you to huge prizes. Last but by all means not least is the Pirate Feature. It turns all symbols into Scatter Symbols and you can win a significant number of Free Spins. It doesn’t matter if the Scatters are placed on an activated payline or not.

Conclusion

Hook’s Heroes is another amazing slot delivered by the well-established NetEnt. Once again they outdid themselves and pushed the boundaries of our expectations. To enjoy in this marvelous creation visit some of NetEnt’s casinos and claim some of the bonuses. Maybe you will find some Free Spins for this slot game in particular.
