Come little children, let us fly away to a land where mermaids have fangs and you’ll have all the cand.. bonuses you could want in the Hook’s Heroes slot.
If that sounded a little creepy, that’s because, honestly, that’s how we felt about the Hook’s Heroes mobile slot when we first started playing.
Not when we opened it up, mind you. Then we were like “Oh cool! It’s like a stage play of Peter Pan made by a bunch of… adorable?… children”.
Except they are not adorable. They’re sinister. The main pirate captain looks like he’ll grow up to be the next American psycho, the kid with glasses is one wedgie away from keeping your body parts in his basement freezer, and the fat kid is going to grow up to be some kind of sexual offender.
And that’s just the highlights.
Creepy, creepy, creepy…
So we didn’t fall in love with the theme of this NetEnt mobile slot. Perhaps we are simple not ‘kid’ people, you know? Maybe, if you think of this as a Halloween game, you can enjoy the macabre effects?
In which case, what you have here is a fairly pleasant, nicely balanced machine. The Hook’s Heroes slot game might not keep you at the edge of your seat like Jack Hammer 2 might, but as you get one of 3 bonus features every time only 2 scatters show up, it’s pretty lively.
It only lasts for one spin, but they show up often, and each time you get a glimmer of hope that one of the slots bonus features will get you something decent.
Mostly it’s not much of anything, maybe 2 or 5 times your bet, but every once in a while, a sweet 20x to 40x your bet win will light up your screen.
Those three features you witness with the 2 scatters, are your choice during the free spins. We write more about them below, but needless to say, our favourite was the captain pirate feature.
It turns every single symbol into scatters, meaning you get a win just by having three or more of the same symbols show up on screen – and pretty much guarantees you a decent pot by the end of it.
Risk takers will no doubt be drawn to the black-eyed mermaid who gives you a possible 4x multiplier, and a possible 180 times your bet… on just a single line win.
All in all, The Hooks Heroes Touch video slot is a solid, if creepy, mid variance game that gives you some decent chances, and keeps the action coming.

Wild: The Captain is the wild symbol and replaces all other symbols except scatter.
Scatters and Free Spins: The scatter is the goofy kid in the crocodile costume.
If you get 2 scatters, you'll get 1 free re-spin, where one of the three bonus features will be randomly allocated.
Things get more interesting when you get 3 scatters, as you now have a choice of free spins, and which of the three features you want to try out.
4 scatters let's you pick from the 3 features twice, whilst 5 scatters let's you pick 3 times. You can pick the same feature over and over again, or try all three.
The features are:
If you actually like the fact that you are going to have nightmares of small children murdering you in your sleep, add one star to this Hook's Heroes mobile slot review.
It doesn't have the big win potential of the Piggy Riches slot game, but your odds of getting a decent payout are not impossible, and feel like they could make you happy after any spin - especially as just 2 scatters is all you need to get a truly great win.
