Hook’s Heroes is a slot machine inspired by J.M. Barries famous early 20th century novels about Peter Pan, but the game is focused not on Peter but on his arch adversary Captain Hook and his pirate crew.
This is a great slot if you like free spins rounds with special features, because it comes with three of those + a chance to get a re-spin with a special feature.
Hook’s Heroes works well both on desktops and touch-screens.

The theme for Hook’s Heroes is Captain Hook and his merry men, but with a twist – everything is set at the theatre. When you start your gaming session, you will get to see an introduction to get in the right mood. The curtain is opened and the lights are turned on – everything is ready for the play.
- Select coin value. There are seven different ones to chose from, to fit all budgets.
- Select how many coins to bet per payline, from 1 coin to 10 coins.
You always play with all 20 paylines active. Thus, the smallest possible bet is 1 coin x 20 paylines = 20 coins. The largest possible bet is 10 coins x 20 paylines = 200 coins.
Captain Hook is the wild symbol and can substitute for any of the regular symbols (but not for the scatter).
The scatter symbol is the key to re-spins and free spins
The scatter symbol has two jobs in this game:
- Activate re-spins (here called Feature Spins)
- Activate the Free Spins bonus round
If you get just two scatter symbols, anywhere on the reels, you get a re-spin with one special feature to help you.
If you get at least three scatter symbols, anywhere on the reels, a second gaming area will appear on top of the reels. Your task is now to select among of three special feature modes: Pirate Feature mode, Fairy Feature mode or Mermaid Feature mode.
Three scatters = you get to select one special feature mode
Four scatters = you can mix and match using two special feature modes
Five scatters = you can mix and match using all three special feature modes
Pirate Feature mode
15 free spins where it doesn’t matter where the symbols appear – it is the number of identical symbols that determine your win
Fairy Feature mode
7 free spins with at least two frozen wilds
Mermaid Feature mode
10 free spins with 2x win multiplier
If a wild symbol helps you form a winning combo, the win will be multiplied by 4 instead of 2
