Hockey Hero – Online Slot Review
Enjoy “all things hockey” playing RTG’s latest video slot release… Hockey Hero.
One of the newest RTG real series slots features two random jackpots (a minor and major), a wild symbol, scatter symbol and free spin feature as well. Play this 25 line, 5-reel video slot for as little as twenty-five cents per spin up to $25.00 per spin.
There are a total of ten symbols during regular play of the game. Only two on a payline of the rhino-style mask, goalie, ref and gold trophy are needed to be awarded a win. The remaining six symbols each require a minimum of three on a payline to be awarded a win. The highest paying symbol of the game is the rhino-like mask and will award you 10,000 coins if five appear on a payline. If a wild symbol helps you complete a win, you’ll be awarded an amazing 20,000 coins!
The wild symbol of the game is a hockey player and is found on reels two and four only. A crow claps when the hockey player is used to complete a winning combination for you. All wins using a wild symbol are doubled.
The penalty box is the scatter of the game and will award you even money on your triggering bet if two appear anywhere on your screen. If three or more scatters appear anywhere on your screen, you’ll be awarded eighteen free spins.
During free spin play, the peanuts symbol is removed from all reels as of the first free spin of the game and a clock is added to reel number one. Every three games another symbol is removed and a clock added. The feature ends when eighteen games are played or when two or more clocks appear anywhere in the same game. The feature cannot be re-triggered.
I began with $47.00 and bet $1.00 per spin on this game. Within a total of 90 spins, the wild symbol completed a total of twenty-five winning combinations for me and the scatter paid me even money on my triggering bet six times. The free spin feature never triggered.
Potentially there is money to be won on this slot, but it certainly didn’t happen for me. I found this slot boring to play and was disappointed that the free spin feature never triggered within 90 spins. I didn’t really care for the graphics… even the highest paying symbol of regular play is a guess on my part as to what it really is! Not a slot I would play again anytime soon.
