Hockey Hero Slot Machine Review

Hockey Hero is a 25 line video slot with an Ice Hockey theme. It has a max bet of 25 coins and coin sizes that start at 0.01. The game has a unique style of free games as well as a random progressive that starts at $1,000 and can hit at any time.

The Player symbol is wild but only appears on reel 2 and 4. While you cannot get five wilds the wild is still a very important symbol as it doubles any win it is a part of. The player substitutes for everything but the scattered Penalty Box and the Clock symbols that only appear during the free games.

Top line win on Hockey Hero is 20,000 coins for five of the Emblems with at least one wild as part of the combination. Getting the five emblems without a wild pays 10,000 coins. The game has some great mid level pays as well with Goal Keepers and a wild paying 10,000 coins and five Referee symbols with a wild paying 5,000 coins.

Its good to see that RTG decided not to use the now common A, K, Q and J type symbols and instead went for all symbols that relate to the theme. In our opinion this really makes the difference when it comes to creating a good theme slot.

The Penalty Box symbols are scattered and activate the games unique free spins bonus when you get three or more anywhere on the screen. You win a maximum of 18 free spins although you will more often than not win less games due to the way the feature works.

For the first spin the Peanut symbols are removed from the reels and a Clock is added to reel one. After every three free spins another low paying symbol is added to the penalty box. This means that as the spins progress you are left with more and more high paying symbols as the lower paying ones are removed.

The catch is that every time a symbol is removed a clock is added to another reel. The free games end when you either reach 18 free games or if two Clocks appear anywhere on the screen. While this can result in a small amount of free games if you are unlucky it also means the reels are stacked with good symbols if you can avoid the Clocks.

The free spins cannot be re-triggered and there is no multiplier for the free spins. We're not usually fans of having no multiplier during free spins but the fact that the chances of getting the games highest pay are increased as the spins progress makes up for this.

If you do happen to get unlucky on the free games, Hockey Hero comes to the rescue with the Win Win Feature. This bonus is activated if you win less than 10X your total bet during the free spins and were betting on all 25 lines. The Win Win Feature pays between 5X and 200X your bet depending on how badly the free spins paid.

RTG have done a great job with Hockey Hero. They have captured the NHL theme really well with both the symbols and sounds. The unique style of free games keeps things exciting and the random jackpot can be won at any time.
