Where to play?
Net Entertainment brings you one of its latest 3D slots releases: Hook’s Heroes. This non-progressive video slots is loosely based on Captain Hook and Peter Pan. What makes it even more special is that it has a pirate theme. Well me hearties, if your inner Peter Pan is dying to come out an adventure of a life time awaits you.
I had a chuckle when I played the game for the first time since it’s outright comical with even more comical characters. It has loads of twists and turns: 3 distinct bonus rounds, a fairy and mermaid feature, scatters, wild substitutes and multipliers. Hooks Heroes has 5 reels and 20 paylines. The total jackpot payout is 194,800 coins. The average return to the player is 96%. When it comes to innovative new slots machines, NetEnt keeps on raising the bar. To play this game for free or real money just visit one of the casinos above in the “Where to play” section.
Hook’s Heroes is a perfect fit for low, medium and high rollers. Bets can be made from as little as £$0.2 up to £$200 per spin. The coin betting range starts off with $0.01 up to $1 per spin.
Once again NetEnt veered away from its usual slots. What makes Hook’s Heroes unique in more ways than one is its unique 3 bonus rounds. Yes you heard me right, three! The scatter symbol is the boy with the crocodile head. When two scatters symbols appear anywhere across the reels, one free spin is awarded. You can win as much as 45 times your stake in the base game. But, it’s the free spins feature that carries the day. Here you win as much as 180 times your initial stake.
Free Spins (Bonus Round)
When three scatter symbols materialize any place across the reels the free spins bonus round is activated. I might add it offers a bit of a twist. Well, not really but it certainly took me by surprise. Each features triggers 3 different bonus rounds:
- 7 Free spins is triggered by the Fairy Feature
- 10 free spins by the Mermaid Feature and
- 15 free spins by the Pirate Feature
During the base game, when 4 or 5 scatters symbols appear any where on the reels, 2 or 3 free spins are awarded. The wild symbol is Captain Hook.
With a coin bet value of $0.02 and $0.80 per spin I landed 3 scatters and unlocked the Mermaid feature. During my 10 free spins I managed a nice win of £150. All wins are multiplied by a multiplier of 2x. When a winning combination has 1 or more wilds the multiplier can be as high as four times. In the Mermaid feature wins are multiplied by 2.
When the Mermaid feature is triggered in the base game, one free spins is awarded. The mermaid pops up, offers a multiplier on your winnings plus an additional multiplier if you manage a win with a wild during the spin.
Fairy Feature: Each spins benefits from 2 to 5 wild symbols randomly distributed across the reels.
Pirate Feature: Is slightly different than the other two bonus rounds. Wins are calculated based on the amount of visible symbols on the reels. When 2 of the same symbols land any place on the reels, it pays out as if you have 2 of the same symbols on a payline.
Hook’s Heroes is a smashing little slots that offers loads of twist and turns albeit in a good way. It certainly stands out from the other fair tale slots and a definite crowd pleaser.
