Hellboy is a fictional character of the Dark Horse Comics series created by the genius writer Mike Mignola. It is a demon summoned to Earth by evil Nazis; whom he turned against and now spends his time battling as “the world’s greatest paranormal investigator.”
The pokies machine named after him is stuffed with bonus features. The big mixture of wilds, scatters, and free spin chances along with plenty of multipliers; and the standard Microgaming gamble feature means Hellboy has plenty of replay value; and can be really lucrative if you have a little luck on the reels.
You can wager between $0.01 and $0.25 per coin; and up to 20 lines at once, making your bet range anywhere from one penny up to $5 per spin. With a top jackpot of 10,000 coins, Hellboy’s non-bonus payouts can be worth as much as $50,000.
The Hellboy pokies machine has 38 different ways to win; featuring symbols familiar to fans of the comic book; such as Hellboy’s stone fist, the red-lettered Hell Boy game logo, and images of the original characters of the book series like Professor Trevor Brutenholm, Johann Krause, Abe Sapien, Liz Sherman, and a few playing card symbols thrown in for good measure.
This title includes a free spins mode, known as Supermode and can reward you with some free playtime. The game also has a bonus game called Underworld. Even better, if you manage to trigger both Supermode and Underworld at the same time, you’ll win even more multipliers and free spins.
Supermode gets randomly triggered, so there’s no way to predict when you’ll get to play this side game. While playing, you can win as many as 10 free spins. The Underworld bonus game is the highlight of the Hellboy pokies bonus title from Microgaming. When this is triggered by the presence of three or more stone fist symbols, a new screen will pop up and you’ll be playing an entirely different game.
The Underworld game is actually made up of four different levels. You play the game by avoiding blocked-off tunnels while you hunt for your friends in an underground torture chamber. Along the way, you will find free spins, cash prizes, and other rewards, also encountering monsters which you can defeat for even more prizes.
Top Prize $84,000
Rarely, you’ll complete all four levels of the dungeon and reach what Microgaming calls the Chamber of Fire, where you’ll play yet another side game to try and collect the Relic of Power. If you collect the Relic of Power, you’ll automatically win the game’s top prize: $84,000 of cold hard cash.
The Hell Boy wild symbol substitutes for all other symbols to form winning combos. Also pay attention to the stone fist image, which is the game’s scatter symbol. Spin more than one stone fist and you’ll get a few free spins, a cash prize or two, and the Underworld bonus game.
Hellboy contain a special gamble feature that gives you a chance to double your winnings on some payouts by picking either black or red–select the correct color and your payout is quadrupled. But you win even if you select the wrong color when this random bonus pops up–a double of your win, which may not be as nice as a quadruple, but is still a sweet bonus for nothing. Hellboy is stuffed with side games and extra goodies.
