Ice Hockey is perhaps the fastest sport around and it’s certainly very exciting; we’ve reviewed a number of games themed on this sport over the years and now there’s one more to add to the list – it’s called Hockey Hero, it’s developed by Push Gaming and you can find out how it all works below.
Hockey Hero is a five reel slot with four rows and forty fixed paylines; the silver-framed reels spins against a backdrop of a huge ice hockey stadium with flags of various nations draped above the seats.
The three highest value symbols are three stacked players of different colours – red, blue and green, and these are joined by a helmet, a pair of stakes and a puck; lower values are the icy-looking J, Q, K and A.
The wild symbol seems to be a gold trophy similar to the Stanley Cup, it can appears stacked on the reels and it will replace all others to form winning symbols except the goal scatter icon.
Hold & Respin
This is triggered whenever all positions on reel one are filled with a player symbol; all matching players and wilds are now held in place for a free respin. Any new wilds or matching players landing will freeze in place and award one more spin – this process continues until no more required symbols land or all positions are full.
This is triggered by landing three of the goal scatter symbols anywhere in view for which you will receive five free spins; only one of the players will be on the reels for these spins and each win is assigned a random multiplier value.
Hockey Hero is ranks well not just against other ice hockey slots but against sports games in general; it’s of a really high quality and the bonus features complement the gameplay well. It comes with an RTP of 96.53% and it highly recommended. For an alternative try Playtech’s Ice Hockey and Microgaming’s Break Away.
