Offering five reels with 20 Paylines, Hook’s Heroes is a relatively new video slot powered by NetEnt software. It’s quirky, cartoonish design lends an almost puppet show-like feel, and the game takes the themes of Peter Pan and Captain Hook.
Set sail on a choppy high-seas adventure in which your job is to put together a pirate crew with whom you can exact revenge on that pesky kid Peter Pan. Each young pirate recruit earns you a prize.
With a bewitching theme and some brilliant bonus games, Hook’s Heroes is certainly worthy of your attention. The colourful graphics are further enhanced by a Caribbean-style soundtrack.
How to play
Play Hook’s Heroes on desktop or mobile, from around 20p a spin, or up to £200 if you’re feeling lucky. Coin sizes vary between a penny and £1.
Candidates for your crew could include Patchy (250 coins; oddly he wears an eye patch!), Goofy (300 coins; identifiable thanks to his large front teeth), Speccy (500 coins; a glasses wearer) and Tom-Boy (700 coins; a young female pirate).
Finally, Voodoo has a slightly scary painted face but could earn you a cool 900 coins.
Captain Hook himself is the Wild symbol in this game, and as usual, he replaces all other icons apart from the Scatter.
The Scatter is none other than the eternally young Peter Pan in a crocodile get-up. Land at least two of these anywhere on the reels to trigger the free spins feature described below.
Hook’s Heroes special features
Bonus games on offer in Hook’s Heroes include the mermaid, pirate and fairy features.
There are two modes – Feature and Free Spins. Any three Scatter symbols will launch the latter.
Choose from the following:
- The Fairy Feature gives players seven free spins plus two to five Wilds which will be added randomly to the reels, where they will stick. If you only land a couple of Wilds, one will be placed on one of Reels 1-3.
- In the Mermaid Feature, players get 10 free spins with an x2 multiplier for all wins, plus an x4 multiplier if a Wild forms part of a winning combo.
- Finally, the Pirate Feature gives 15 free spins while every symbol acts as a Scatter. Win prizes based on the number of matching icons anywhere on the reels, rather than having them calculated according to Paylines.
Get four Scatters to choose to play two of these three features, five to get to play all three.
This is triggered when players hit two or more scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. It awards one free feature spin with a randomly chosen feature.
Return to Player (RTP)
