Come on Son! Get involved in this Hooligan Hustle slot for some big wins of 10,000x your bet, up to 248,832 ways to win, and a high RTP of 96.27%.
There’s no charming bobby, no posh queen, and no cups of tea anywhere in-sight in this British-themed game set right bang in the middle of a post-football match riot.
Hooligan Hustle is a 5-reel video slot game with 243 payways that pay respect to the part of UK cultures that love to drink a pint, fling bricks at windows, and listen to the Sex Pistol in pure anarchy liberation.
We loved it. You have to appreciate the tongue-in-cheek mockery of having 4 hooligans in mid-fight as the high-paying symbols and then 5 various weapons as low-paying.
The traffic cone as the Wild is brilliant. Who doesn’t come home with one of those after a night of drunken brawling?
Play’n GO’s answer to Megaway slots is simple; just randomly split one of the symbols on the reel. It can happen at any time, but it simply increases the ways to win, without having to change rows or complicate gameplay.
This slot mechanic co-exists beautifully with each of the reels above has a special place for modifiers. These pop along frequently, sometimes all five, more often than not just one or two at a time.
The modifiers include a wild reel, syncing two or more reels together, or just a 2x multiplier on any wins that pass that reel. Add them together and we’ve seen wins of over 300x our bet.
The big question will come when you trigger the Hooligan Hustle free spins bonus: will you choose 10, 5, or just 1 bonus spin? The answer may seem simple but bear in mind that you’ll be guaranteed 2, 3, or 4 reel modifiers depending on your choice.
Do you go hell for leather and go for one free spin that has 4 features and (with enough splits) could give you that coveted 10,000x your bet max win?
Personally, we are not quite so brave, and found the Riot Free Spins (5 spins with 3 features) was thrilling enough to satisfy.
This Hooligan Hustle mobile slot is volatile and asks you to be very brave because the noise and stand-off can last longer than the actual fight and make this very frustrating. If you want something a little more tame and traditional, you are better off playing on the Best of British slot.
But if you want something as crazy and anarchic as the brilliant punk song playing in the background, this has far more to offer even the biggest anglophile.

Split Symbols: On random spins, any of the symbols can randomly choose to split into two. All instances of that symbol will then split, allowing you to catch 5 of a kind wins on fewer symbols. Because of the split symbols, you can open up to 248,832 ways to win.
Mystery Symbols: These are boxes that will open up to reveal one and the same symbol. They will never reveal the scatter.
Rumble Row Reel Modifier: Above the reels are 5 empty cases that may sometimes spin and land any of the following modifiers onto the singular reels below:
You can get multiple of the same kind of modifier on any of the 5 reels.
Scatters and Free Spins: 3 or more scatters trigger the free spins. You can then choose between:
Splitting and Mystery Symbols can also be found in the Hooligan Hustle free spin bonus.
We feel like this Hooligan Hustle slot was made with a whole load of love by someone who both understands and is able to mock this UK subculture.
Ultimately we gave this video slot review 4 stars because we think it would have worked a little bit better at lower volatility. You want to get those features triggered often. You want to hit the free spins and go on a riot. But it feels like hard work getting there.
That said, if you are willing to go into a fight, the top win of 10,000x your bet does feel like it could be reached with just one bright molotov cocktails of a spin.
And whilst a lower top win and more hits would have improved this Play'n GO video slot, as it stands it's a beautifully crafted machine with fun mechanics and an unusual slot theme.
