Hitman reviewBy Gambit | August 19th, 2009 | Category: Featured, Top Games | Comments Off
Following on from the success that is Tomb Raider Secret of the Sword, I was eager to try out Hitman Slot. Once again it was based on the popular video game, and I eagerly fired it up. Overall – the game is pretty good; but Tomb Raider Secret of the Sword Slot hands it a beating. Still, a review is needed, and the game is decent – if not on the same level.
Lets’ get down to brass tacks. The game is a 5 reel slots, 15 payline video slot; with coins ranging from 0.01 to 0.25; and allowing up to 20 coins per line. That means you can wager between 0.01 and a whopping 75 of your currency per spin.
This might have been one of the first times they introduced animations for special symbols on a video slot. The wild symbols are the biggest animation; as they act like a scatter (so don’t have to line up to count as a winning symbol) and if they make a difference to the payout will animate beautifully. I must admit it’s a little cinematic treat when it happens – particularly two symbols side by side. But after the tenth or so time it happens you find yourself clicking through them very quickly.
There are 3 features in the slot, activated by three sets of symbols; all of which act as scatters, thankfully because if I had to line them up as well I may never have experienced the features.
- The first game is a pickem – but without bumping you to a different screen. Reels 1,2 and 3 will all have the same symbol on in different spots; and all you have to do is click on one of them. This will reveal the amount of coins you win. It’s a nice feature and will come up quite often.
- The second is the, by now, standard free spins feature. The spins were pretty cool – but nothing different from other slots. Still, I always enjoy getting them.
- The last one is the bonus game. Well – I waited ages for this one. The bonuses only appear on reels 3, 4 and 5; and you need all three to trigger the game. That said – the wait was well worth it. The game is a double pickem game – first you pick a target to eliminate (gives you a range of coins); then you choose a weapon (a multiplier for those coins). I’m not sure if you can make any difference to the outcome of the second choice – but you do have to choose when to administer the chosen weapon; which might have an effect. Either way it was a brilliant game, and rewarding. I managed to get 90,000 coins on my first shot. Wow!
I also played for a few hours with very little change to the bank balance – which is both a good and a bad thing. I didn’t win anything really, but had a few hours of entertainment at very little cost. So – all in all, I was a little disappointed, but it’s worth a shot at Platinum Play Online Casino.
