Hat Trick Hero is a very simple online slot to play. The game has a fun, almost arcade-like, design and it wastes no time in throwing you into the action. To get started, you will need to choose your stake. The minimum on offer here is a very low €0.20, while the maximum you can bet on one spin is also low at €12, making this an ideal slot for those operating on a smaller budget. The slot itself has a very basic set-up, with the action taking place across five reels and three rows, with 25 active paylines. There is also a standard auto-spin feature that you can use to take up to 100 spins for you while you watch the fun unfold.
All of the symbols in the Hat Trick Hero tie in with the game’s football theme. The highest paying symbol is the trophy, which pays out a slightly random 37.5x your stake if you manage to land five on a pay line. The rest of the premium symbols on the board are other items you would expect to find at a football match including a shirt, goalkeeper gloves, and a golden ball trophy.
The lower paying symbols in the game are the card symbols which range from 10-A. 10 and J are the two lowest paying symbols, with them both paying out 5x your stake for a combination of five, and 0.5x your stake if you only manage to land three.
There is a small but fun selection of Hat Trick Hero bonus features available here for players to take advantage of. The first one you are likely to encounter is the Power Shot wilds. These are really just standard wild symbols that the slot has given a more elaborate name to. Scoring three of these, however, will help you trigger the game’s main bonus round - the Hat Trick Hero Event.
When this happens, players will be rewarded with some Hat Trick Hero free spins. As long as there are wild symbols on the reels, free spins will continue to be rewarded. After each spin, the wilds will move across one reel to the left until they leave the grid. When they leave the grid, you will be rewarded with one point. If you manage to get to 15 points before the free spins run out, then you will be rewarded with a very generous payout of 1,000x your stake.
The Hat Trick Hero RTP is listed as 96.23% by Betsoft. The company doesn’t list any volatility information regarding the volatility of the slot. When playing the slot, we found the demo version to reward the bonus rounds on a fairly regular basis.
