Hellboy is a superhero created by Dark Horse Comics. He was further popularised through a series of movies. Microgaming has created a branded online pokie titled Hellboy. Fans of the superhero obviously play this game a lot, but it finds favour with the larger Australian online casino players segment as well. Hellboy video pokie is live at Microgaming powered online casinos like Casino Mate and Royal Vegas.
The game logo is the wild symbol with a 2x multiplier property. It also awards the highest line payouts with a five-of-a-kind combination paying 10,000 times the line bet. The high paying symbols are characters from the sagas and include Hellboy, Professor Trevor Bruttenholm, Johann Krause, Abe Sapien and Liz Sherman. The low paying symbols are the playing card icons. The huge and famous fist of Hellboy is the scatter symbol that awards payouts multiplied by the total bet. The symbols are styled in the manner they are represented in Hellboy comics. The high tempo background music and some win animations add to the thematic experience.
There are plenty of features in Hellboy. The most attractive one is the Underworld Bonus feature on the second screen triggered by landing three or more scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. This is a multi-level thematic bonus game in which the objective is to obtain the hidden relic of power guarded by ferocious beasts. You have to negotiate four levels of underground tunnels. If you happen to rescue team members you will earn award bonus points. But if you find that a tunnel is blocked then the feature will end. Players who complete all four levels will reach the Chamber of Fire and claim the Relic of Power and win additional bonuses.
Hellboy also has a free spins feature that is randomly triggered and called the Supermode bonus. You are awarded 10 free spins in which three wild symbols are randomly located on the reels and held fixed for the free spins. The branded video pokie also includes the standard Microgaming Gamble Game. After any winning spin you have the option to try to double or to quadruple the payout by guessing the colour or suit of the card. But if you guess incorrectly then you will lose the staked amount. Hellboy has twenty selectable paylines. The top total bet per spin is AU$50. High rollers may not find this attractive enough. The online pokie has all the Microgaming functionalities including an Auto Play feature.
