Enter the cold and mysterious universe of Agent 47 thanks to the Hitman slot machine adapted from the eponymous video game series. The result is quite impressive: a high-octane game with interesting game mechanics. Unfortunately, some minor defects downgrade the overall effect, but nothing serious, not to worry. Prepare to let the hitman in you express itself with this slot machine developped by MicroGaming.
A Good Adaptation With Weak Graphics
This slot machine is a good adaptation of the video games edited by Eidos Interactive. We recognise the same sound effects and musical themes as in the series. There are also a few good artworks of Agent 47. The symbols go well with the dark atmosphere. Knife, gun, syringe, strangling rope, sniper gun, the perfect hitman’s accessories are represented. You’ll also find banknotes, the not-suitable-for-under-18s logo (because of violence) and the hero in different poses. To put it shortly, an adaptation which lives up to the series’ name. On the other hand, everything is quite unrefined: the buttons are ugly, the colours of payment lines clash and the background of this slot machine is bland to look at. Fortunately, these limits do not hurt the game too much, but a bit more effort would have been nice. A shame.
Even if the quality of graphics could be better, the atmosphere does not suffer from it since MicroGaming has inserted many animated sequences during the game. Some symbols, when in a winning combination, offer a short animation taken from the video game. We can then see Agent 47 at work: leaving an empty room, picking up money or planning some dirty deed in a church. These animations are definitely a bonus.
5 reels and 15 payment lines are on offer in the Hitman one-armed bandit. Since the value of the coins are comprised between 0,01 and 0,25 $/£/€ and that you can bet anything up to 20 coins per line, you can bet the huge maximum of 300 coins, or 75 $/£/€. This slot machine has a Wild and a Scatter symbol, 2 bonus games and free spins. There is no progressive jackpot. The fixed jackpot allows you to win 60 000 coins in a normal game and 67 500 during bonus games. The variance of this slot machine is average/high.
Wild and Scatter
The Hitman symbol on a white background is wild and can treplace any other item except the scatter symbol. When it appears on screen, it transforms itself to take up all the squares on the reel. An animation starts and makes you plunge entirely in the action and atmosphere. It is also extracted from the video game, which is an added pleasure for fans. The 18 in a red circle is the scatter symbol in this slot machine. If you get 3 or more of them anywhere on the screen, you get no less than 18 free spins. Buttons then disappear and free spins automatically start, with their countdown at the top of the screen.
There are two bonus games in the Hitman slot machine. The most basic one starts when you obtain an Insignia logo on reels 1, 2 and 3. You then obtain winnings picked at randoms in front of your eyes, with their values reeling past on the symbols. The main bonus game starts when you get a micro-computer symbol on reels 3, 4 and 5. The reels then disappear and a woman, with a very sexy British accent, contacts you. In front of you, 5 profiles of people to kill appear. You need to choose one which will give you money. Then, select the weapon you want to use to kill them. A new screen appears, on which you will find the multiplier to apply to the amount of money you have just pocketed. Full of excitment, this bonus game will make you think you are a hitman and earn money thanks to your evil actions. It’s great and sticks to the theme of the game.
Despite its disappointing graphics, the Hitman slot machine is a success. Its atmosphere is excellent, with numerous animated sequences which will introduce you to a cold universe of mystery. It has fun game mechanics and an immersive bonus game. On top of that, fans of the series will recognise different elements borrowed directly from the video game. This slot machine is an excellent adaptation and simply a great casino game. If you appreciate Eidos Interactive, you might be interested in knowing that MicroGaming has adapted other video games by the same developer.
