Easy to Understand (10)
Hellboy is easy to understand. The pay table is self explanatory. The bonus features are explained in detail. In case players need further information they can access the help files.
Graphics & Sounds (9)
The graphics are sharp and colorful. The background music is adequate. The animation in the two main symbols is interesting. The drawback is that the other symbols are not animated.
Theme and Concept (9)
Hellboy is a very popular character from Dark Horse comics who has been represented in movies and other media as well. The slot game replicates the atmosphere of the comics perfectly through well chosen characters. The animation in the Fist symbol and the Underground Bonus feature complement the theme. There is an opportunity lost by using high value card symbols when symbols from the comic book could have been used.
Game Features (10)
Hellboy provides excellent game features. The wild symbol doubles payouts. The scatter symbol triggers the Underground Bonus feature. This feature has four levels and is sufficiently complicated so as to be interesting. Supermode, the free spins feature, is randomly triggered and has three held wild symbols. There is a Gamble Game as well.
Betting Options (8)
All three betting options can be adjusted, which is a good thing. However the options are such that the maximum total bet per spin is only 50.00 credits, which is not likely to attract high rollers, at least not those who are not Hellboy fans.
There is no progressive jackpot. But this is made up for by attractive fixed jackpots. The highest fixed jackpot pays out 10,000 coins, which at maximum bet amounts to 25,000 credits. The second highest jackpot will also pay out 10,000 coins if made with the help of a wild symbol.
