About Hooligan Hustle
Play‘n Go is a titan in the Canadian iGaming industry and is known for its dedication to creating high-quality slots with unique themes and storylines, while simultaneously making sure the gameplay is out of this world.
Fortunately, all this is still true with their latest release Hooligan Hustle. The slot features 4 crazy hooligans who you wouldn’t want to meet after a game. Join John, Dazza, Steve or Gary in this high action, humorous, hooligan-filled slot.
This high-quality game is a 5 reel x 3 row slot, which provides 243 ways to win. The stakes range from CA$0.10 to CA$100 per spin, and there are plenty of additional features that add to the excitement of the gameplay.
Themes, Symbols, and Paytable
Obviously, the theme of the slot is soccer hooliganism. This is definitely a unique take on a soccer-styled slot, and as always Play’n GO has put their own spin on it.
The game itself is brash, chaotic, and taps into that mindless craziness that represents hooliganism in all its glory. Let’s just be clear though, we’re not advocating real-life soccer hooliganism in any way shape or form – the violence that can erupt at soccer games can seriously intimidate and harm innocent bystanders.
But Play’n GO’s Hooligan Hustle bypasses any controversy by its sheer cartoonish display of its hooligans, who are aptly named after friends we can all probably remember coming across in school.
The paytable consists of plenty of hooligan-esque symbols like homemade weapons, some pints of lager, knuckle dusters, and the 4 hooligan characters themselves. The lower paying symbols are worth up to 0.3 to 0.5 times the initial stake, whereas the premium symbols are worth 1.4 to 2 times the stake for a 5-of a kind win.
RTP and Volatility
Like a rowdy soccer match, this slot can get highly volatile. Play’n GO have created a high variance math model with this slot – rating it as 7 out of 10. While RTP’s are often variable, the default version of the game features an RTP of 96.27% which considering its volatility is pretty generous.
Gameplay and Features
There are plenty of additional features to keep you entertained and the hooligans at bay for a time! Some of these features include a Free Spins bonus round, Mystery Symbols, Split Symbols, and a Rumble Row tracker
If you land 3 scatter symbols it will trigger the Free Spins bonus round! Players then get 3 choices for their Free Spins. They can either choose Lairy! (offers 10 free spins with 2+ guaranteed Rumble Row modifiers active), Riot! (offers 5 free spins with 3+ guaranteed Rumble Row modifiers active), or Anarchy! (offers 1 free spin with 4+ guaranteed Rumble Row modifiers active). Each package has its own strengths and weaknesses so choose wisely!
Mystery Symbols are able to transform into any matching symbols on the reels.
During a players’ spin, any symbol can be chosen at random to split. When this happens, it can increase the number of ways to win up to a maximum of 248,832!
The Rumble Row tracker sits along the top of the reels and can randomly activate on any spin, awarding modifiers to the reel below. These modifiers can provide Wild Reels, Multipliers, and more.
Overall, here at The Slot Buzz Canada, we were seriously impressed with this slot. The quality of the visuals is amazing, like all Play’n GO slot games, and the theme is extremely unique and hilarious. While the theme might not be to everyone’s taste, you’ve got to hand it to them for taking a step outside the box. There are also plenty of additional features and gameplay mechanics that provide endless hours of entertainment, and give players the possibility to win up 10,000x their initial bet. And it offers a pretty generous RTP considering its volatility.
Hooligan Hustle is a brash, no fuss slot that takes no prisoners and offers no apologies – and that’s why we like it. Players should definitely give it a go this January!
