Hooks Heroes is another NetEnt’s non-progressive video slot but only inspired by the Captain Hook’s character in Peter Pan.
Theme and Subject
Although it is a 3D slot with a 2D cartoonish theme. The graphics is pretty clear and sharp but characters do not look like 3D cartoon characters. The view behind the reels is a stormy sea floating a ship with white clouds and trees. In another mode, the background is different with a calm field with white clouds as well. Here the reels are on what looks like a brown wooden floor.
In appearance, Hooks Heroes looks like just another themed video slot promising nothing new but a different set of characters and symbols to offer. We are here to let you know there is more to discover about this slot machine and it has nothing in common with other slots when it comes to bonus features. How the bonus rounds and free spins work is totally a fresh idea put together by NetEnt’s developer team. We will talk about all there is to know about these particular attributes but let’s walk you through the icons on the screen and how they work.
With 5 reels and 3 rows, this slot presents a simple layout where you are able to keep up with everything happening during your spins. Also, it has a decent amount of 20 pay lines. All the reels and rows are displayed on a paper painting hanging with the aid of four swinging ropes. Below the hanging reels, game settings are arranged, the payline and coin regulators, spin and max bet icons and two different bars that show the pay line you chose and the coins you’ve earned. Hooks and Heroes bet lines allows you to bet as little as 0.20 value coin and a max of 200. The jackpot is 900 coins which is of medium range compared to what some slot offer.
Symbols and Subjects
There 5 human character symbols and they have the same value. The number 10 and letters A, J, K, Q have the lowest values. The main character, Captain Hook with a hat that has ‘wild’ written on it represents the wild symbol that has the ability to replace all symbols present on the screen when it is active. Another character wearing a crocodile costume is the scatter symbol, this character does not respond to the wild effect.
Three types of free spins are available in this slot title and it allows you to activate your preferred type of free spin feature. When you get at least three scatter symbols on any rows on the reels, you are offered three free spin options. You get to choose from:
- 7 free spins + 2 to 5 wilds that will be included into random places on the reels. (Also known as the Fairy Feature)
- 10 free spins + 2x your total wins or 4x your wins if there is a wild symbol in your combo. (Also known as the Mermaid Feature)
- 15 free spins + a feature that turns all symbols to wilds. (Also known as the Pirate Feature)
If this bonus round is activated by more than three scatters, you will be rewarded with two or three of these features and you always get to choose which of the options you want. When you match up two or three scatters on any of the reels or rows, you will get a free spin with all these options to choose from. All the bonus rounds will always allow you to choose how you want your free spins. This is quite interesting because it makes you actively participate in the process of getting your wins.
