While there are countless films that have been turned into popular and high-selling computer and console games, there have not been too many that have taken the opposite path. Hitman is a hugely successful game that transferred to the silver screen and it can now also be enjoyed in slot format.
Microgaming picked up the licence for Hitman in 2007 and they have created an engaging 5 reel, 15 payline slot that captures the nature and essence of the original game. There are bonus rounds, free spins and scatters to look out for; so, just like a good hitman, you will need to have great surveillance and observational skills.
Even if you have never played the game or seen the movie, the title tells you all you need to know. You are the star of the game, taking out people for money and fleeing the scene of the crime while leaving no trace of your presence. The game accepts coin values from 0.01 to 0.25 and the maximum amount of coins is 300. There is no progressive jackpot but the standard jackpot stands at 4,000 and there is an additional 2,000 jackpot.
If you are keen to find the biggest jackpots, there will be more rewarding slots than Hitman but when it comes to finding a slot that offers plenty of ways to play, a great range of bonuses and an all-encompassing game, you will find that this hits its target. The audio and visual elements are perfectly tied into the theme of the game and you will find yourself being drawn into your character’s role in a way that few other slots can offer.
To find the wild symbol, you need to be on the lookout for Agent 47, the lead character in the video game. He can land on reels 2, 3 and 4 and will expand to complete any possible wins. This is also available during the freespins bonus.
The Wild will not substitute for any of the Scatter bonus symbols
The Insignia Bonus Game is started by finding the Insignia symbol, and it can net you up to 6,000 coins.
This round will trigger when you land the symbol on reels 1, 2 and 3, at which point you will need to select one of the insignia’s. The win that is shown will then be multiplied by the total stake of that spin.
If you’re the sort of player that finds value in free spins, uncovering three ’18’ symbols will provide you with 18 free spins with a 2x multiplier.
You can land 3, 4 or 5 of them to trigger the freespins, and while in the round bonus features and expanding wilds can still occur, which is great news. However, freespins cannot be re-triggered.
As an assassin, contracts are essential to making money, and as such, this is the most lucrative bonus game with the potential to win 270,000 coins.
Landing the laptop symbol on reels 3, 4 and 5 is your key to entry, and once inside you will have to choose from one of the available ‘targets’, with each one having a range of bonus values which have been multiplied by the amount staked. A mystery value within that range is chosen once a target is selected, and after that you will have to select a weapon and a random multiplier will be awarded.
The total win will be the original target value multiplied by the random multiplier.
