Hooked Slot Review

Wear your boots and ready your fishing pole because it is time to go fishing. Booming Games has created a fishing-themed slot good enough to help you reel those wins in. Are you up to the challenge? Spin to find out!

Starting with the visuals you’ll immediately notice that a lot is going on. As expected, the “story” takes place deep underwater which you can easily tell by the corals and reefs visible on the corners of the interface. On the left side, you’ll see a fishing net with a scale attached to it. The reel set occupies most of the screen and the reels are divided by columns of air bubbles while the logo of the game sits on top.

Moving on to the mechanics, the slot features the classic slot model as all the reels start spinning at the same time and come to rest individually in consecutive order. The gameplay is enhanced by the addition of multiple bonus modes but more on this later on.

As we’ve said in reviews of similar games, fishing-themed slots aren’t that popular but they do have a good following. So, if you are interested in checking out some more titles then we recommend you try Big Bass Bonanza by Pragmatic Play as well as Perfect Catch by SthlmGaming. Now, let’s see what Hooked has in store for you!

How to Play Hooked

The game consists of 3 rows and 5 reels with 25 fixed paylines. Different from usual, the controls can be found stacked at the right side of the screen allowing players to set the preferred bet size, enable the autoplay and max bet functions, enter the in-game menu, or simply spin.

Regarding the stakes, you can bet as little as $0.25 or as much as $500 per spin. Hooked is a highly volatile title which means that winning spins won’t occur that often but the chances of them being bigger are much higher than usual. The maximum exposure is a bit low at 1,000x your stake while the RTP is average at 95.49%.

Hooked features 5 low paying and 3 high paying symbols. The first come in the form of different colored fishing tackles followed by a big bass, a swordfish, and a lobster.

The slot’s special symbols are:

  • Wild – Represented by the rusted sign, the wild will substitute for all other symbols except for the scatter to form or improve winning combinations.
  • Scatter – Represented by the fishing floats, getting 3 or more of these symbols will trigger the free spins feature.

Game Rules

Hooked Features

This slot game didn’t look like much at first but after a while it got us hooked. Well, this wasn’t a very good pun but you know what’s really good? The special features we are going to talk about right now!

Fish On!

At random points throughout the session, may that be during the base game or the free spins feature, one of the 3 high paying fish can pass by the reels. If you’re lucky enough you will succeed in catching them thus triggering the Fish On! feature.

The feature is played on a different reel set where only the caught fish can land on. Each “caught” fish will be collected in the fishing net and increase the weight on the scale. The number of fish you caught corresponds to a bet multiplier. However, managing to fill all 15 positions will award 250x, 500x, and 1,000x the stake for the bass, swordfish, and lobster accordingly.

Free Spins

Getting 3 scatter symbols will trigger the feature awarding 5 free spins. Getting 4 or 5 scatters will award 10 and 15 free spins respectively. Unfortunately, the free spins can’t be retriggered during the feature so you’ll have to limit yourself to the initial trigger.

However, keep in mind that the Fish On! feature can be triggered throughout the free spins session. In fact, we were lucky enough to trigger it twice on the same free spins feature trigger. The number of the current free spin is always shown in the free spin counter and after the feature has ended, the associated banner will display your total win.
