Hitman is a crime-flavoured 5 reel, 15 payline slot from Microgaming that's based on the series of games for Playstation and XBox of the same name. The story in the original game concerned the mysterious and deadly 'Agent 47' who was a cloned assassin for hire with a completely flawless hit record. Basically if you caught view of Agent 47 in your peripheral vision, the next thing you were likely to see was probably the pearly gates (or the gates of hell, more likely).
Here the Hitman has a choice of five nasty-looking targets to choose from, none of whom you'd like to bump into in a floodlit alley, never mind a dark one. Select your target and your prize, and then see how much of an assassin you actually are.
The symbols in this slot are all Agent 47's tools of the trade – guns, knives, syringes and sniper rifles. You can choose your coin size in this game from 0.01 to 0.25, the number of lines you want in play from 1 to 15, and the number of coins you want to risk on each spin from 1 to 20. Your final bet size is all these three values multiplied together. When you're ready to start sniping, hit the 'Spin' button.
Payout & bonus rounds
The lowest payout is for three garrote wire symbols at 4x your bet-per-line. The top payout in normal play is for five of Agent 47 about to take a pot shot. This will win you 4,000x your line bet.
The shiny-bonced Agent 47 clutching a pair of revolvers is an expanding wild. It appears on the central three reels and expands to fill the entire reel when it lands. It substitutes for all other symbols except for the scatter symbol.
You win up to 6,000 coins with the insignia bonus. This is triggered when the insignia symbol lands on reels one, two and three. Select one of the symbols to reveal a cash multiplier.
An '18' symbol can win you a free spins bonus. If you land at least three of them anywhere on the reels you win yourself 18 free spins in which all wins are doubled.
The contract bonus game is awarded when you land the 'bonus' symbol on reels three, four and five. Choose your target and complete your mission. Select correctly and your reward could be up to 270,000 coins.
Hitman has awesome graphics and a very atmospheric soundtrack which makes for a very entertaining game. The bonus features are very good, and help make this an enjoyable slot. Just be careful if you win a fortune though – you might make someone jealous and end up on the hitman's list yourself!
