Hook's Heroes is a charming desktop and mobile slot by NetEnt that's based on the Peter Pan book by J. M. Barrie. However, you won't find Peter or Wendy on its reels as it focuses its attention on the novel's villain, Captain Hook and the crew of his ship, the Jolly Roger.
There's another twist in the tale as NetEnt has designed the Hook's Heroes slot to appear as though it's being performed in a theatre by a group of schoolchildren. Consequently, there are some adorable animations such as children's hands holding up pieces of wobbly scenery and a particularly sulky female pirate who looks like she'd rather be at home watching TV than putting on a theatrical performance.
This five-reel slot uses twenty pay-lines and boasts a top jackpot of 36,000 coins. There's also a plentiful bounty of bonus features that can make a huge difference to your account balance by delivering win-upon-win.
When you join the cast of Hook's Heroes on the high seas, you'll be treated to a Caribbean theme tune and a view of sunny skies and tropical islands. The scenery of moving waves gives you the feeling of being onboard the Jolly Roger. Various characters and objects can appear on the reels while you're playing this highly amusing NetEnt slot, such as kids in crocodile costumes, a miniature Captain Hook wild, a candy skull pirate, a buccaneer with braces, and a little lad who's balancing a rubber duck on his blindfolded head.
The minimum and maximum bets are 20p and £200 respectively, which makes it suitable for all types of players.
The wild symbol is played by Captain Hook, and it can replace all symbols except the Crocodile Boy scatter.
As we've just mentioned, the scatter is the Crocodile Boy, and he awards one re-spin using one of the game's three bonus features whenever he appears twice on the reels. If he lands in three positions or four positions simultaneously, you'll get to pick two or three times from the bonus features.
The three options you'll come across in Hook's Heroes are the Mermaid, the Fairy, and the Pirate feature.
With the Fairy feature, you'll benefit from two, three, four or five wilds in random positions during your re-spin.
The Mermaid feature multiplies the value of all wins by x2 unless the winning combo contains one or more wilds, in which case your wins are multiplied by x4.
In the Pirate feature, the need to land matching symbols on adjacent reels goes out of the window, and you'll be rewarded for the number of identical symbols that appear on the reels instead.
Relive your childhood with the Hook's Heroes slot by NetEnt, and you could fill up your pockets with bags of pirate plunder!
