Be prepared to help Agent 47 hunt down some wins as you play this Hitman slot machine online, or on your mobile.
A Microgaming game that is based on the original console game by Eidos, this Hitman slot provides you with a dark and sinister platform, but with bonus games and free spins to liven the reels.
Because, let’s be honest, assassin slots aren’t meant to be jolly. What you’ll find here are knives, pistols, sniper rifles, poisonous syringes, garrottes, envelopes of money, and the main man himself in various action poses.
That said, don’t expect fast action paced slot chases of wins or big wins here. This is for those who are fans of the original game and like their video slots graphical yet stealthy. No good assassination was ever rushed.
And by that we mean that generally these 5×3 reels and 15 paylines are hard to tame. The wins in the base game barely cover your bets, and even the bonus features can leave you cold inside with only 20x your bet on average. But patience is the key to this slot game.
That said, if you are looking for some faster paced action, then try Playtech’s Thor or the Microgaming slot Hot As Hades. Both fun and full of bonus game action.
The wild symbol across all the reels is the white backed Hitman with his two pistols, and will expand on reels 2, 3 and 4 to create more possible winning combinations.
A feature that shows up often, and although not always with a win, generally will reward you more often than not, even if it’s just a friendly top up.
What’s great is that this slot bonus feature comes in handy in the free spin games too. Simply find three of the red and white 18 rating symbol on reel 3, 4 and 5 and you’ll trigger 18 free spins with a 2x multiplier.
Find three expanded wilds at this stage, and you might start to understand why someone might want to become a genetically engineered perfect assassin. It pays.
What’s good here is that even though you can’t re-trigger the free spins, you can trigger the other two bonus games which we are about to talk about in a moment.
Word of warning, you will have to budget for a decent 100 – 150 spin to hit these, so budget accordingly.
There are two very different cash bonuses to trigger here. The first is a simple pick me bonus which instantly rewards you with around 5 – 10x your bet and is called the Insignia bonus.
Simply find three of the golden fiery insignias on reel 1, 2 and 3, and you get to pick one to find out your reward. Quick, simple, and the most common of the two to trigger.
The second is still essentially a pick me bonus but is a little more involved, with a storyline and skilled assassination contracts.
So it’s not in the free spins, but in the contract bonus that you’ll find the big wins in the Hitman video slot. Find three of the green computer bonus symbols on reels 3, 4 and 5, and you’ll be given a mission to complete.
Pick from a set of 5 different targets each with their own story and varying win ranges. Once you’ve picked your target you’ll see a value of your win, then it’s time to pick your weapon.
Once your weapon has been chosen, a 2x up to 6x multiplier will randomly be selected and multiply your win from your first pick, giving you your total overall bonus win.
We like to play it risky and go for the bigger wins, but then again, we’ve always been a fan of higher risk games like the Playboy slot machine.
There’s no denying that this is one of the older Microgaming games, the game play might be a little slow for some, but with a decent betting range of 0.15 up to 75, it can appeal to those on limited budgets.
The return to player rate of 95% – 96% might look good but we found our bank rolls slowly fading away to black more often than not.
However, the multiple slot bonus games, multiplying free spins and expanding wilds still add a some thrill to an otherwise fairly simple slot machine.
And the nice thing is, you can play it on your iPad, iPhone or Android phone or tablet. Play on the go whenever you want a few deadly spins and see if you can make a killing on this Hitman video slot.
