Microgaming brings back a superhero like no other in this Hellboy mobile slot.
We should point out, as we write this, we can see every single Hellboy DarkHorse comic book sitting on our shelves.
We are not impartial to this Microgaming slot theme, is what we are trying to admit.
On the other had, the fact that we were so predisposed to love this Hellboy slot might make you wonder why we only gave it a 3 star slot review, right?
Needless to say, the graphics look amazing. Taking the theme straight out of the pages of the Mike Magnolia books, this has little to do with the hollywood films, like the likes of Bridesmaids or Jurassic World slots.
But who cares? Even if you’ve got no idea what this is about, just enjoy a game that tells the tale of a demon and his paranormal friends, all working for a bureau made to combat the supernatural.
Once you’ve got your head around that you’ll start enjoying 20 paylines and 5 reels full of comic book fun.
And by full, we mean decent 5 of a kind wins and a 2x multiplier on the Hellboy wild symbol.
Here’s the reason why we didn’t give this mobile casino game more than 3 stars.
Because unless you have a whole load of luck, or happen to like reviewing slot games so you got to keep playing till the bonus games…
You might wonder if this Hellboy slot game has any bonus games at all.
Because by god can they take their sweet ass time to come, by which point you might have given up ever finding the monster wins.
Isn’t that what we want? To hunt down a win that could be as much as 1,841 times your bet?
Because that’s what hiding in this Hellboy casino game. Except you have to wait for the randomly triggered free spins, or at the very least, get a top up or two from the awesome click me game.
This is a medium volatility slot machine that is old fashioned to say the least. You literally get a fun enough base game, with the occasional chance at a big thrill bonus game.
But that’s part of the appeal of this Hellboy slot machine. It harks back to the days of Wolf Run slot, where you put your money in, cross your fingers, and get everything or nothing.

Wild: The HellBoy slot logo is the wild symbol and will replace all other symbols on screen, except the bonus scatter. It will also double any wins you get if you use it.
Supermode Free Spin Bonus: This feature will be randomly triggered after any spin - so there nothing to look for, you've just got to cross your fingers and hope.
Hopefully it will trigger, at which point you'll get 10 free spins where up to 3 wild symbols can stay sticky on screen - a little like the Cazino Zepellin slot by Yggdrasil.
Scatter and the Click Me Bonus: 3 or more of Hellboy's fist symbols anywhere on screen trigger a visually stunning click me bonus.
Here you get four levels, with progressively bigger prizes. Find monsters and you'll get cash prizes. Find Hellboy's companions, and you'll win all the prizes on screen.
Find a blocked tunnel, and the click me bonus ends.
It's not a particularly innovative bonus game, but you know what? It can be very rewarding and as much fun as similar features in games like Sherlock Holmes the Hunt for Blackwood.
It pains us to say it, but this is not the best Microgaming branded game in their portfolio.
With the likes of Tomb Raider slot and Jurassic Park taking those top spots, this comic book game just manages to catch your heart with a hint of nostalgia.
That's not to say that this Hellboy slot on mobile isn't any good. In fact, with those doubling wilds, and big 5 of a kind wins, it can be fun even if you don't manage to hit the bonus games.
Which you probably won't. But if you do, then you'll automatically add another 2 stars to this video slot game review, that we promise.
