NetEnt's latest online slots release - 'Hook's Heroes' - is now available to play at online casinos.
The hero of this slot is a boy pirate named Hook. Whether he has anything to do with the Captain James Hook of Peter Pan fame is never revealed - perhaps on purpose as in the original tale by J. M. Barrie it was Pan who sliced off Captain Hook's hand. Would seem unfortunate to model a slot based on a mutilated little 'un. We think in this game Hook and his buddies are only playing at being pirates, and you can play along with them.
The game starts with a very brief animated intro before you can get down to business. Hook and his heroes are on hand to hopefully win you plunder-a-plenty with three unique game features:
- Fairy Feature - every spin has between two and five overlay wild symbols placed on the reels randomly
- Mermaid Feature - all wins are doubled unless the winning symbols contain at least one wild symbol, in which case they are quadrupled
- Pirate Feature - all wins are calculated on the number of symbols on the reels, and not if they appear on an active payline - in effect ALL symbols become scatters
The features are available when 'crocodile' scatter symbols land on the reels. Two scatters awards a random single feature spin, but three awards at least seven free spins with a choice of features. Choose the mermaid feature for another three free spins, and the pirate feature for eight more bonus spins.
Four scatters means you can pick two feature spin bonuses, and five means you can pick all three!
