Popular Microgaming slot, “Hitman” has been released to the Flash version ofÂ several onlineÂ casinos includingÂ Jackpot City and Royal Vegas.Â Many players will know this slot – it’s proved very popular since it’s arrival in mid-2007 and has arguably the best graphics, sounds and gameplay of any online slot, yet alone those on the Microgaming platform.
For those that have yet to try Hitman, it’s a really cool themed slot game withÂ expanding wilds and three different bonus features, including free spins (18 a 2x). While the graphics on the Flash version are a little slower, and not quite as rich as the version of Hitman in the download version, the gameplay is identical and the general look and feel is the same. Hitman’s appeal, graphics and sounds aside, is in the gameplay. As you’d expect, one of these is a free spins bonusÂ which awards 18 free spind with all wins doubled, however the really lucrative bonus is the “Green Calculator” bonus (see screenshot above).
The latter bonus round is hit when the Calculator symbol appears anywhere on reels 3, 4 and 5. It’s a pick ’em style bonus but with more to it than other similar styled bonus rounds. You select a character from the Hitman game (as in the famousÂ Eidos PC game) and are awarded a number of coins. Then you are prompted to select a weapon for the hitman to use and this acts as a multiplier between 2x and 6x. The total award at max bet gives you up to 270,000 coins.
I have had some huge hits on the Hitman slot – well over 1,000x before now – but it should be pointed out it’s a high variance slot, meaning the risk is high and you will suffer some long mean streaks. But the occassional whopper of a payout gives you something to aim for. If you are the sort of player who likes to aim at a very occassional monster hit, this slot will be right up your street. There is also an expanding wild symbol on reels 2, 3 and 4 which, when they hit together can also provide some meaty wins.
