Not all heroes wear capes. Some, as it turns out, wear trench coats, have bad-ass moustaches and wear their goggles on top of their top hats. In an alternate universe steampunk London, this Habanero release follows one esteemed gentleman’s hunt for the biggest prey a hunter can put down – a fierce and dangerous dinosaur. With symbols that reaffirm the Britishness of our hero and the steampunk nature of the setting, London Hunter is an all-around great slot.
The background image shows a heavy, industrial zone with smog and cloudy skies mixing together to create that wonderfully drab British weather we all love so dearly. Despite being entirely static, it sets the tone for this different world wonderfully. The game offers players a 5x3 playing field with 25 fixed paylines. That means gamblers cannot turn paylines on and off to adjust their total bets. The title offers four fixed jackpots, Wild expansion, a multiplier tied to the two meters and free spins.
The most valuable symbol is the hunter, followed by his esteemed bulldog, a sniper rifle, goggles and a tobacco pipe. Playing card icons A, K, Q, and J as the lowers paying icon. The large dinosaur is Wild, but it only appears on the first and fifth reel. He is also used to activate free spins, alongside the hunter and the sniper rifle symbols.
This is a 5-reel, 3-row slot with 25 fixed paylines. All important UI elements are beneath the reels, like the Spin button, Autoplay, bet level, coin value and maximum bet. Above the reels, you can see your current multiplier and the four fixed jackpots that swap between each other. Wins are awarded starting from the leftmost reel following the 25 active paylines across which you should collect three or more identical icons.
On each spin, the left or right meter will fill up slightly. The right meter allows Wild Expansion to take place, while the left meter increases a multiplier to 3x.
Wild Expansion triggers when a dinosaur symbol appears at the same time as the hunter. That transforms the dinosaur into a 2x2 symbol. A maximum of two expansions can occur for a single meter.
The multiplier is boosted up to 3x when the left meter is filled. It is deactivated when any winning combination happens.
Players get 10 free spins if they land the hunter on the first, his rifle on the second and the dinosaur on the fifth reel. After two to six spins, both meters will fill up during free spins. The game starts with a 3x multiplier if the left meter was full and two more free spins are granted if the right meter was filled entirely.
London Hunter is available for both desktop and mobile, letting gamblers choose what platform suits them best. You can play seated at your computer or on the go with your phone or tablet.
