There’s definitely some connections to slot gaming and pirates. There’s the quest dimension, progress, treasure hunting… So, NetEnt has decided to pay a tribute to these unsong villains with the Hooks Heroes slot.
Theme, graphics and sound
The slot intro will take you right in the middle of a Pirate Theater. Behind the curtains, the main starts are the Hooks Heroes slot special features!
You’ll find yourself in the middle of the sea, surrounded by boats and a lonely island. In front of you, you’ll see the road to treasure: the beautifully-designed reels!
The symbols are in wooden crates. So, absolutely everything about this video slot is in sync with the grand theme of pirates.
Hooks Heroes Slot Gameplay
This video slot is played on 5 reels and 3 rows.
In total, there are 10 different symbols that appear in the game. Five of these are pirate characters (higher-paying) and five are A, K, Q, J, and 10 (lower-paying).
Free Spins and Special Features
Without a doubt, bonus features are the best thing about the Hooks Heroes slot. Within the Free Spins bonus, you can activate three different special features:
- Pirate Feature
- Mermaid Feature
- Fairy Feature
During the Pirate Free Spins Feature, the structure of a game changes. It’s no longer necessary for symbols to form a winning combination in a horizontal or vertical line. Rather, wins are calculated according to the total number of identical symbols that appear on the screen.
The Mermaid Free Spins feature triggers a multiplier. All winning combos instantly get multiplied by 2. If a winning combination contains a Wild symbol as well, it’s multiplied by 4.
During the Fairy Free Spins feature, each spin will contain 2 to 5 overlay Wilds. They will scatter randomly all over the screen.
You can win these features by receiving 3 Scatter symbols. If you receive 2, you’ll also trigger the Free Spins feature, but with only 1 Spin.
