Created by Dark Horse Comics, the Hellboy series is one of the first major indie comic books to make it to the big screen, kick-starting a trend that gave DC and Marvel plenty of competition.
Hoping to cash-in on some of that success, Microgaming released a pokie version of this unlikely superhero in 2010, which you can find on Spin Palace.
Although Hellboy has a basic aesthetic, it works very well and matches the visuals from the comic book. Whilst most people know this character from the films, it is definitely the comic book that inspired this particular pokie.
The highest paying symbols include Johann Kraus and other humanoid characters, with the standard letters and numbers paying very little.
The minimum bet on Hellboy is $0.01 per line and the maximum is $1. There are 20 paylines in total, so to get the most out of this game then you will be looking at a minimum of $0.20 and a maximum of $20, which should please a wide scope of players.
There are two bonus rounds on this pokie. The first of these is a free spins round, triggering 10 free spins completely at random. The main bonus round is unlocked via the scatter symbols and sends you on an adventure, and one where your goal is to make it through 4 levels and to get to the Chamber of Fire. If you manage to do this then you’ll be in for a sizeable reward. This round pays much more on average than the free spins round, although it depends entirely on your luck.
A simple pokie with some basic aesthetics, Hellboy has plenty of features to draw even the most hardened gamblers. These include high paying symbols, big bonus rounds and free spins, making this a winning pokie.
