Hitman Slot Machine Review (Microgaming)

Hitman Online Slot Machine

OK…I confess, I love Hitman. I didn’t think I’d see a day where Microgaming came up with a slot that dragged me away from Thunderstruck on a regular basis, but I was wrong. It took 3 years, but finally they did it. That said, it’s had a mixed opinion on the forums – seems like Hitman is a “love it or hate it” slot, but no points for guessing where I lie. It’s medium-high variance, which suits medium/high rollers better, but that’s why I love it: lots of big win potential among the lean spells.

Hitman is a 5-reel, 15-payline slot with three seperate bonus rounds. Two of those are “pick ’em” style bonuses, which normally I find boring but not so in this instance. The third bonus is a “free-spins” bonus awarding 18 free spins at 2x multiplier for 3 scattered “18” symbols anywhere in view. Unusually, it’s not the free spins that provide the big rewards, it’s the “Green Calculator” bonus. More of that in a bit.

The graphics on the Hitman slot are amazing. The expanding wild symbols appear on reels 2, 3 and 4 and expand to cover all 15 paylines doubling each win in the process. Get all 3 with a decent matching symbol on reels 1 and 5 and you’re quids in, though it’s fairly rare. Some of the other symbols also go into overdrive when you win with them, running small but effective animations with great sound effects. The game is based on Eidos’s Hitman PC Shoot-em-up and does a good job of recreating the atmosphere too.

Although getting 3 or more “18” scatters doesn’t pay anything in itself, the 18 free spins can turn up some surprises, although I’m finding the average return is around 15-20x the total stake – not huge. The first pick-em bonus is fairly uneventful, occurring when you get three Hitman symbols adjacent on reels 1,2 and 3. You pick one and reveal a small win of up to about 15x bet max. However, the final “calculator” bonus is the one (see screenshot below). You can win up to 270,000 coins on this bonus round and it is very nicely created, giving you a bit of an adrenaline rush at times.

The Calculator bonus, unsurprisingly, is the hardest to hit, but it’s where the real rewards are. On the odd occasion, I’ve had over £1,500 from a £2.25 stake and that’s a buzz. All you need to do then is know when to cashout! Doesn’t happen a lot, but when it does…!

Hitman Bonus Slot

If you haven’t tried Hitman yet, give it a whirl. It may seem slow to play after a while, but if you go to “Options” and check “quickspin”, it will speed up gameplay and cut down on the animations. Similarly, if you click on the reels anytime it’s running a graphic sequence or a win count, it will skip to the end. An excellent slot IMO. Note that Hitman is not available in the Flash casinos, only the download versions.
