Slot Name: Hockey Hero
USA Players: Accepted
Hockey Hero is a hockey-themed game which was created by developers from RTG. The slot’s theme will show you what happens during a hockey game, and its symbols are a collection of items that players would wear or use, along with foods that the spectators in the stands would enjoy (beer included). The slot’s 5 reels get a maximum of 25 pay lines and can offer you payouts of up to $100,000.
The game is available in the US, players from this country having access to it thanks to RTG’s policy not to ban them from their casinos.
Betting & Jackpots
The rewards can be great in this slot, but there are also considerable wagers to be made if you want to get there. You can spend up to $125 on one spin of Hockey Hero if you choose to maximize the coin value to $5 and to use all 25 pay lines available to you. The minimum denomination is at only $0.01, so players with smaller budgets can also try it out.
Payouts of up to 10,000 coins are given away inside, with the wild’s multiplier being able to take it up to 20,000 coins, or $100,000 cash.
The Player symbol is the slot’s wild, reserved for the reels 2 and 4 and capable of taking the place of other icons, as long as it appears in a position where it can be useful. If this happens, and a new combo forms thanks to it, a 2x multiplier is applied to its value. Wilds can’t replace scatter symbols.
Speaking of scatter symbols, the Penalty Box icon is one of them, so you can expect to get paid by it whenever these symbols are present in at least two locations. Payouts start at the value of the bet, but with five scatters you can reach values of 200x.
At the same time, you can get free spins to trigger as well, the requirement being for 3+ Penalty Box icons to be present anywhere in the game. You can win a maximum of 18 free spins, at the start of which Peanut icons are taken out of the game, while a Clock symbol is placed on the 1st reel. For every 3 free spins that you go through, another regular symbol is removed from the reels, while another reel gets the Clock icon. The free spins end in one of two ways. You either get to 18 free spins, or you have 2+ Clocks present on the reels during the same spin.
It’s not a bad design for this kind of theme, all of them in a style which reminds me of video games from the 90s, especially the players and the referee. The rest of the symbols have sports trophies, hockey pucks, masks, tickets, popcorn and beer, all of them part of the hockey experience.
It’s a no-brainer if you love hockey, but even if you’re not a fan of the sport you will appreciate the top payouts of 10,000x to 20,000x which you can take home, with the value going as high as $100,000.
