European football (soccer) has long been a favorite theme for video slot game developers throughout the years. The one international sport that seems to have been forgotten is ice hockey. Well, Playtech remedied that problem with its release of the Ice Hockey slot game. Hockey fans will enjoy this game as it fits very well in the sports genre. The graphics are terrific and the player caricatures are sure to draw a smile. The video and audio features are both appropriate and amusing, making the game as much fun to watch as it is to play. The game would most likely be considered a high variance slot.
Game-play begins with the player choosing a left-side team (USA, Russia, Sweden, etc.) versus a right-side team (same choices). The teams are necessary because they are used to determine both left-to-right and right-to-left player payouts. The game is played with five reels and 15 pay lines that pay in either direction. The required minimum wager is $.01 per line up to a maximum of $100.00 per line, making the game ideally suited for high-rollers. The standard symbols are represented by playing card numbers 9-A and different players from each team. The hockey goal acts as the wild that substitutes for any of the standard symbols. Other special symbols include the "Ice Hockey" logo (scatter), "Free Games," and the puck (bonus). The best payout is provided by five wilds, which comes back with 10,000 coins.
Special Bonus Features
As far as bonus games are concerned, the game doesn't have one that requires the player to complete as task. However, there are a couple of exciting bonus spin features.
Free Games Flag - If the "free games" flag for either team appears on both reels one and five, the player is awarded 12 free spins. During free spins, only players representing the free games flag will appear on the reels along with the other standard symbols and some of the special symbols. Free spins cannot be re-triggered.
Pass the Puck - This is an interesting feature. If the puck appears on reel two, a bonus is paid if a player from the left-side team is adjacent to it. The puck is then passed to any other players from that same team until all those players have passed it and a goal is scored, resulting in a total payout based on how many players were involved. The same process is repeated for the team on the right-side if the puck appears on reel four.
Summary: - A nice ice hockey themed game was well overdue. Even though the game lacks depth, it doesn't seem to matter because of the game's theme, graphics and the "pass the Puck" feature, which is enough to keep most hockey fans excited.
