The Hitman slot is a 5 reel, 15 payline action-filled casino game from Microgaming. There’s plenty of exciting features to trigger here, as you take on the identity of Agent 47, a cloned contract killer who sets out to assassinate some bad guys. The game is based on the video game and movie with the same name, so if you’re familiar with them, you will feel right at home playing this slot.
And there is plenty of help waiting for you on the reels, everything from expanding wilds to pick-and-win features and three different bonuses. So, take on the contracts of Agent 47 and spin to win up to 270,000 coins in this Hitman slot.
The video slot follows the standard payline mechanic, and there are 15 paylines on the game. This is a game that offers a lot of different options when it comes to betting. You can choose the bet amount, coin value and number of active paylines by activating the Expert mode, which is a tiny, button that’s rather hard to see, under the Max bet button. The usability of the game is not its strong suit, but the features are.
There are 9 paying symbols, one wild that substitutes for all paying symbols and it also expands, into three different bonus symbols!
The look of the game is dark and suggestive, just like one would expect a casino game based on a hitman franchise would look. Symbols and buttons feel a bit outdated, even if the design adds to the feeling of being a super-secret assassin agent. Some symbols come with animation, such as the wild.
There’s a short soundtrack that is looped throughout the game, and the reels, buttons and different settings all use the standard slot machine sound effects. Animations also have some dedicated sound effects that will play when triggered, but all in all, there’s nothing too exciting happening in regards to sound in this game.
There are three different special features in this game title, the Contract Bonus, Insignia Bonus, and the Free Spins Bonus.
Contract: Triggers when three laptop symbols land on reels 3, 4 and 5. You get to choose a target and a weapon, after which a mystery value and a multiplier is selected.
Insignia: Three Insignia symbols on reel 1, 2 and 3 triggers this feature. You get to choose one of the three insignias and the win shown will be multiplied by the total bet staked.
Free Spins: 3, 4 or 5 18-age logo symbols triggers 18 Free Spins at a 2x multiplier where expanding wilds are in play.
If you can disregard the somewhat confusing use of buttons and settings of Regular or Expert (after you’ve actually managed to locate them), the game is still one that delivers quite a lot of entertainment thanks to its features. Sure, the RTP is under 96%, which, to our standards, is a bit low, but it does still allow for winnings of up to 270,000 coins from a single spin, and the bet range is also extensive.
Are there better slots out there? Yes, but there are no other slots that take on the Hitman concept like this one.
