Hook’s Heroes Theme and Gameplay

Hook’s Heroes is yet another creative and fun slot by Netent, who never seem to disappoint with the quality of their products. The game is set on a pirate island with Captain Hook and his companions taking center stage. All the characters are played by children in costumes and the music is reminiscent of our favorite cartoons.

The game offers the possibility to adjust the bet options and customize your wagers according to your preference. You can select a bet level between 1 and 10 and a coin denomination ranging from 0.01 to 1.00. The bet level multiplies the coin value to increase your bet size. The minimum you can wager is 0.20 euro and the maximum is 200 euro. The game is optimized for all devices – desktop, mobile, and tablet.

The low-value symbols include the 10, J, Q, K, and A that look as if they’re made out of colorful paper. Higher value symbols feature the main characters from the story with the red bandana pirate offering the best reward of up to 900 coins. Hook’s Heroes Slot has a return to player percentage (RTR) of 96.82%.

Hook’s Heroes Symbols and Features

Hook’s Heroes offers a variety of special features, so you certainly won’t get bored. The Notorious Captain Cook is the Wild symbol in the game substituting for all other symbols except the Scatters. Wilds can land on any reel and any position at any point of the game, except when free spins in the Pirate Feature are activated.

There are two different scatter symbols depicting kids in crocodile costumes. If you get 2 Scatter symbols anywhere on the reels, you’ll activate 1 free Feature spin with a randomly chosen feature. 3 Scatter symbols appearing anywhere on the reels award multiple Free Spins. There are 3 different features you can select from – the Fairy Feature, the Mermaid Feature and the Pirate feature. Each of them activates a different number of free spins.

  • Fairy feature awards 7 free spins. In addition to that each spin will have between 2 and 5 Wilds placed in random positions, as an overlay.
  • Mermaid Feature activates 10 free spins. Also, during this feature all wins will be multiplied by 2, and if a Wild symbol was part of the winning combination, they will be multiplied by 4.
  • Pirate feature awards 15 free spins. Wins are not calculated based on winning paylines and symbols appearing on adjacent reels, instead, you win if you get 3 or more identical symbols anywhere on the reels. No Wild will appear during Pirate feature round.

In case 4 or 5 Scatters have appeared simultaneously during the main game, you can select a free spins feature 2 or 3 times respectively. If you wish, you can choose the same one every time.

Our Verdict

Hook’s Heroes is definitely a fun ride and you might get your hands on a real pirate treasure. The main goal is to get to the feature round, especially the Pirate feature where you could get multiple winning combinations at the same time and they will be paid out.
