Peter Pan may have been the main protagonist in the fairytale, however Captain Hook appears to have had enough and has decided it’s his turn to take the limelight in this fun-themed slot game.
Net Entertainment, who are also known around the industry as NetEnt, have produced Hook’s Heroes with a cartoon theme and have provided the game with a rather interesting soundtrack and a rather unique background.
Our Hook’s Heroes slot review found that this game was extremely light-hearted and simply a bit of fun, with the addition of a bonus feature making it even better. Read further to see what we thought of a number of key bits of information required to play the game effectively and efficiently.
Hook’s Heroes is a five reel, 20 payline video slot game that is playable from just 0.20¢ per spin. However, for those bettors that like playing with larger wagers, they are able to place bets as high as $200 per spin by altering the coin level to 1. These can be altered in the ‘Coin Value’ section. The ‘Level’ tab will allow players to set the number of coins per line, whilst ‘Bet Max’ will do exactly as it suggests.
‘Spin’ and ‘Autoplay’ are both available as well, with both buttons being rather self-explanatory.
You can assemble the staff in any order, and you can start winning prizes from the first spin. Recruiting Patchy can win up to 250 coins, recruiting Goofy can win up to 300 coins, Speccy can win up to 500 coins, Tom-Boy can win up to 700 coins, and Voodoo can win up to 900 coins.
Be careful with Captain Hook, because he likes to go a little Wild, although the good news is that he will be happy to cheer for one of the other pirates and make additional win paylines for you. Also, pay attention to Peter Pan wearing a crocodile costume, because this is a very valuable scatter symbol in the game.
There are a number of Hook’s Heroes bonus features that are available within the game, which certainly continue to add to the fun that can be experienced with this NetEnt slot game.
Like many other slot games, the bonus feature is triggered by landing three or more scatter symbols, with Hook’s Heroes providing players with a Free Spins feature. This feature will then allow for players to choose from a further three features in the bonus round.
Players can choose 7 Free Spins in the Fair feature in which 2 to 5 wilds will stick on the reels, or choose the 10 Free Spins in the Mermaid feature, which sees all prizes doubled, whereas winning combinations made with the wild symbols are quadrupled.
The final feature is the 15 Free Spins in the Pirate feature, which gives players prizes that are awarded on the number of matching symbols on the reels. If the Free Spins round is triggered by four scatters, then two of the three rounds can be chosen, whereas five scatters will see all three rounds played!
