Hook’s Heroes Slots

Hook's-HeroesHook’s Heroes is a very special slot machine, thanks mainly to its design but to which the features manage to contribute as well. It’s a game that was created by the guys from Net Entertainment, where pirates are the inspiration for it. The implementation of the theme is not the standard one, using kids for the main characters, instead of the adults that are usually part of these games in the main roles.

In Hook’s Heroes, the player will find 5 reels and on them a standard number of 20 paylines. There are also feature and free spins, scatter symbols and wilds, quite an interesting spread overall. The jackpot of $9,000 gives you the other reason you need to play this game.

Features of Hook’s Heroes

The features in Hook’s Heroes give you a mix of both regular (wilds, scatters, free spins) and special options (the different types of features which come with the free spins mode).

A wild symbol is probably the most common feature which a slot machine will offer these days, and it’s true even of the classic titles. Probably about 99% of the modern games offer it, and Hook’s Heroes is no exception. The Pirate Captain is the one that gets this role in Hook’s Heroes. Acting as a substitute, the Captain can take the place of all other symbols, but not of scatters.


Free Games Feature

The Alligator costumed boy is the scatter symbol in this game. The result of its appearance depends on the number of scatters which are on the reels. Three of these scatters get you one pick from the three types of free spins available. Four or five symbols will give you 2 or 3 picks, respectively. You can make different choices, or you can choose the same type of free spins in each case.

You can pick the Fairy Feature, which has 7 free spins, the Mermaid Feature, which has 10 spins, or the Pirate Feature, which gives you 15 spins for free.


If you picked the Fairy, your 7 free spins will come with a minimum of two and a maximum of five overlay wilds, which will be placed on the reels in random spots.

With the Mermaid Feature being chosen, the wins you obtain get a 2x multiplier. With wilds helping out, the multiplier applied is 4x.


The Pirate Feature is the third and final possible choice. 15 free spins are given by it, where all symbols act as scatters, paying based on their total number, not on the positions they occupy on paylines. These spins don’t have wild symbols.


Feature Spins

If you don’t get the 3+ scatters needed for the free spins, but you have two of them, you get one Feature Spin for free. This spin comes with one of the three types of features active, chosen at random.


Betting options and jackpots

The game lets you use between 20 and 200 coins each round. You always bet on 20 lines, the number of coins varying from 1 to 10. There is also the coin denomination to decide on, the range here being from $0.01 to $1. You can spend a maximum of $10 per line, or $200 total.

A regular symbol offers the best payout, being at 900x the line bet, or $9,000 cash.

Design and symbols

Hook’s Heroes is a pirate themed game, so that’s exactly what you will see when you look at its reels or at the background image. However, the style in which the design was made is highly unusual, the pirates being kids in this case, while the background with its pirate ship looks more like props which are part of some school play. The school play angle makes the game quite different and attractive, especially since it’s a modern title.


Symbols: Pirate Captain (wild), Alligator Costume (scatter), Black Pirate (900x), Girl Pirate (700x), Curly Pirate (500x), Redneck Pirate (350x), Eye Patch Pirate (250x), Ace (200x), King (150x), Queen (120x), Jack (100x) and 10 (100x).


Is It Worth Playing?

The pirate angle, mixed with a children’s school play theme, gives you a fun slot machine which has some great features to offer, but not the biggest prizes.

The Hook’s Heroes slot machine is offered through the Net Entertainment platform, so if you want to play it for real or just to practice, look out for casinos that use it.
