Avast, me hearties! Join Captain Hook and his terrible crew, set sail on the seven seas and get ready for all the booty in the world! That’s right, NetEnt’s brand new slot, Hook’s Heroes, is pirate themed! Well, not as much Pirates of the Caribbean as pirate-themed kid’s birthday party, but still, we had to go a little scallywag there. But yeah, the game is more jolly roger than the Black Pearl.
Now, the game is a 5 reel, 3 row, 20 line video slot, so we are more back to basics in that sense. The higher symbols depicts pirate kids and the lower symbols are 10, J, Q, K and A. There’s also a Wild symbol, depicting Captain Hook himself and a corny looking free spin symbol that you will learn to love.
So what makes Hook’s Heroes unique, apart from the jolly pirate theme? You know how frustrating it can be when you hit just 2 scatters? Some slots gives you your bet back or even doubles your bet, but you still don’t get any free spins. Frustrating at length to say the least.
Hook’s Heroes seek to change that, not going all Wish Master on us, but rewarding you with a taste of free spins if you hit 2 scatters. You get 1 Feature Spin with one of three random bonus features. In the Pirate Feature (Arrrg!), wins are calculated by the number of visible symbols on the reels, no lines as such apply! Only downside: No wilds on the reels in this feature. Now, the Mermaid Feature will multiply all wins by 2, unless there’s a wild symbol in your winning combination, which will multiply your wins by 4! The Fairy Feature is perhaps our favourite though, giving you between 2 and 5 overlaying wilds randomly placed!
3 free spin symbols gives you a bunch of free spins. You’ll have to make the choice between the 3 different features. 7 free spins with the Fairy Feature, 10 free spins with the Mermaid Feature and 15 free spins with the Pirate Feature. If you manage to get 4 or even 5 scatters, you’ll get to choose 2 or 3 features. Note that you’ll have to finish 1 round of free spins before choosing the next.
