Hook’s Heroes Video Slot Game Tutorial
Video slot Hook’s Heroes is built out of 5 separate reels, with 3 rows and 20 fixed win lines. The bet level and coin value in this game are adjustable so you can play around with your stake. Choose a bet level from 1 to 10 and coin value from € 0.01 up to € 1.00. Winning combinations are created when identical symbols appear on a payline and on adjacent reels, on this game calculated from left to the right. Video slot Hook’s Heroes has various special game features, including symbol substituting Wilds, Scatter symbols that activate Free Spins and special Feature Spins; the Pirate Feature, the Mermaid Feature and the Fairy Feature.
Wild symbols (depicted as Captain Hook himself) substitute for all other symbols (except for Scatter symbols) to help create the highest paying winning combinations. Wilds can appear on any reel, on any position and at any moment in the game (except for during spins with the Pirate Feature activated).
Video slot Hook’s Heroes Features
In video slot Hook’s Heroes 3 different ‘Features’ can be activated, each with their own functions. These features are triggered by Scatter symbols and come as either a ‘Feature Spin’ (= a free re-spin) or as the special game feature applied to a certain amount of Free Spins that are granted (see below). The Features are the following:
- The Pirate Feature: when the Pirate Feature is activated winning combinations are formed by 3 or more identical symbols anywhere on the reels instead of only on the win lines of the game and on adjacent reels. In game rounds with the Pirate Feature mode activated no Wild symbols will appear.
- The Fairy Feature: with the Fairy Feature prompted during the game round(s) 2 to 5 symbol substituting Wild symbols will be randomly placed (as an ‘overlay’) on any reel and on any position.
- The Mermaid Feature: when the Mermaid Feature is turned on all winnings will be paid out double (x 2). If a winning combination is formed with help of one or more Wild symbols the winnings will be paid multiplied by 4 (x 4).
Scatters and Feature Spins
When in the main game 2 Scatter symbols appear anywhere on the reels randomly, either the Pirate, Fairy, or Mermaid Feature as described above is applied on the free ‘Feature Spin’ (= re-spin) that follows.
Scatters and Free Spins
When 3 or more Scatter symbols appear anywhere on the reels the Free Spins mode of video slot Hook’s Heroes is activated. In that case, the player needs to choose which of the 3 Features he wants to activate during the Free Spins game rounds. Each feature will grant a different amount of Free Spins:
- The Pirate Feature rewards 15 Free Spins
- The Mermaid Feature comes with 10 Free Spins
- The Fairy Feature will grant 7 Free Spins
In case during the main game 4 or 5 Scatter symbols simultaneously have appeared the player gets respectively 2 or 3 times to choose a Free Spins Feature. This choice might be 2 or 3 times the same Feature or each time different. Free Spins game rounds are always played with the same coin value and on the same bet level as was played within the spin that activated the Free Spins mode. During Free Spins no new Free Spins can be won.

Pay Table / Win Plan
To find out how you can win, and what combinations you need to see on the reels, as well as how much each symbol will bring you, you can view the paytable, which NetEnt attaches to every single one of their games. A winning combination is created when 3 (or more!) identical symbol appear on the set pay lines, of which there are 20. Remember, the pay lines are read from left to right to create wins. In Hook’s Heroes, wins can be created differently during the Pirate Feature, giving you a lot more chances to win! It’s possible to receive more than one winning combination on the reels at any one time and when this happens, all the combinations will be paid!
