Of all the sports in the world, Ice Hockey is one of the most popular ones, at least in the Western hemisphere of the World. Touted as the most important sport in North America and Canada, hockey really brings a lot of attention by the fans worldwide, so it figures that Push Gaming decided to combine online slots and the most popular sports in the US.
Hockey Hero is an online slot that takes place in a huge Ice rink, in the middle of a stadium that s packed and ready to see a great world- championship takes place. In the background of this beautifully, cartoony-style online slot we can clearly see the flags of all of the nations that participate in the competition, and the player’s jersey’s also reflect that pretty clearly.
The lowest-paying symbols in the game, the playing cards, that are restricted here to just the 4 ‘’big-ones’’, J, Q, K, and A, are represented by a background of cracked and ‘’used’’ ice. All of the other main equipment pieces are not missing also, as you can clearly see the puck, the goal, the blades, and the helmet as being part of the higher-paying repertoire of symbols.
The structure is pretty clear-cut and follows a good pattern that seems to be followed by more and more online pokie developers in the last few years. A 5×3 base game structure with 40 paylines may seem unusual at first. While the RTP and variance of the online pokie is not standard in the industry by any means, it still means that this online pokie is quite special and can release some important prizes if you make the correct combinations. The sticky hold and respin feature from Meerkats are also a prevalent feature here.
Push Gaming is widely known for the fact that it releases games with high-end graphics all around, and Hockey Hero doesn’t take acceptance to this, following the same pattern. NetEnt, Betsoft and iSoftBet, the most known competitors of Push Gaming might represent bigger names, but in no way can they compete with them when it comes to graphics and rendering. Another great feature that has become a must in the last few decades with online gaming is the fact that Push Gaming, and Hockey Hero, in turn, provide a bevy of solutions when it comes to the device you re playing on, or with.
One of the most common criticisms that Push Gaming has been struggling within the last few years is the fact that many competitors claim that the incredible-looking graphics may come at the cost of gameplay features and bonus possibilities.
That is not the case with Hockey Hero, an online slot that has a lot of useful features and bonuses that all types of players can enjoy, beginners and veterans alike.
