Play Hellboy

Hellboy Game Information

Hellboy is a hellishly-good 5-reel, 20-pay line slot from Microgaming. You’ve probably seen one of the two Hellboy films that have been made, both starring Ron Perlman as the red-skinned, hammer-fisted other-worldly demon. Thankfully in both films Hellboy was on our side.

Originally, Hellboy was a comic-book character created by artist-writer Mike Mignola. Born of a witch and a demon in 1617, Hellboy was summoned to our dimension as a child in 1944 following some unpleasant Nazi trans-dimensional experiments, where he was captured and then brought up by Professor Trevor “Broom” Bruttenholm. Eventually Hellboy ended up working for the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense, thwarting inter-dimensional baddies who threatened Earth’s safety. He also liked cats, chocolate and beer, but not necessarily in that order.

Hellboy Gameplay and Symbols

The symbols in this game are based on the comic-book version of Hellboy as opposed to the movies. The playing card values ten to ace are joined on the reels by Hellboy himself of course, Professor Bruttenholm, the amphibious Abe Sapien, the ectoplasmic Johann Kraus, and fire-wielding Liz Sherman.

There are twenty possible pay lines, and you can select how many you want in play for any particular spin by clicking the appropriate number at the side of the reels. You can select your coin size from 0.01 to 0.25, and the number of coins you want to risk per spin from one to ten. This gives you a range of bets from 0.01 all the way up to 50.00.

When you’re all set, hit the ‘Spin’ button. To trigger a win you need to land at least three identical symbols in sequence on an active pay line from the left-hand reel.

The lowest pay out is for three tens or jacks at 5x your bet-per-line, up to a devilish 10,000x for five ‘Hellboy’ logo symbols. You can gamble any win by clicking the ‘Gamble’ button. You can select the colour (to double your win) or the suit (to quadruple your win) of a face-down card. If you are correct when the card is flipped, then you’re in the money. If you’re wrong, however, then you lose your payout.

Hellboy Bonus Features

Wild Symbol: The Hellboy logo acts as the wild symbol, and substitutes for all other symbols aside from the scatter. All wins that contain a wild symbol are automatically doubled.

Scatter Symbol: The scatter symbol is Hellboy’s ‘Right Hand of Doom’, and landing at least two anywhere on the reels lands a prize. The total prize is your bet multiplied by the multiplier that’s awarded.

Underworld Bonus: If you land at least three scatter symbols you are through to the Underworld Bonus game. Your object in this game is to locate and secure the hidden ‘Relic of Power’ which unfortunately is guarded by some pretty nasty beasties. You must locate members of your team and avoid blocked tunnels as you make your way through the game’s four levels. The more successful you are, the more cash you will pick up.

Supermode Feature:
This feature is triggered randomly and awards ten extra free spins. As an extra bonus, Hellboy himself will pop up and turn three symbols randomly into wilds. These wilds then stay in place until all ten free spins have been played. Supermode cannot be re-triggered during free spins.

Hellboy Conclusion

If you’ve seen either of the Hellboy movies, or read any of the Hellboy comic books, then you’ll understand that it’s a very good job than the larger-than-life (and twice as ugly) Hellboy is on our side. It’s also a good thing that he’s on your side when you play this colourful-looking slot from Microgaming.

This slot is for those who prefer simpler slots, as there are only really the most basic of features. The Underworld game is a lot of fun though, and plays out with a sort of retro-gaming feel that should appeal to players of a ‘certain’ age. Hellboy is game that truly deserves its place in slots heaven.
