Hitman is based on the computer game series of the same name, the first instalment of which appeared in 2000. There was also a film adaptation in 2007, the same year that this online pokie game first appeared. This pokies game is elaborate both in concept and design and features very lucrative bonus features with a range of high payouts
How to Play
Hitman is a 5-reel, 15 payline game where wins pay in different positions on the reels. It’s a coin-based game where credits are converted to coins – all payouts are multiples of the number of coins you’re playing, so wagering the maximum number is the best approach. Coin sizes range from $0.01 – $0.25 with the maximum bet on any spin being 300x coins – so the cost of playing the maximum coins on the maximum paylines is between $3.00 – $75.0
Game Symbols and Paylines
- Hitman (holding two pistols) is an expanding wild symbol on reels 2, 3 and 4 and completes any possible wins
- 18 symbol is a scatter symbol and 3x, 4x or 5x triggers the 18x free spin feature
- Insignia symbol on reels 1, 2 and 3 triggers the Insignia bonus feature
- Laptop symbol on reels 3, 4 and 5 triggers Contract bonus feature
18x free spin feature: During the 18x free spin feature, triggered when 3x, 4x or 5x scatter symbol appears anywhere on the reels, all wins are doubled.
Insignia bonus: This feature is triggered when the Insignia symbol appears anywhere on reels 1, 2 and 3 and requires you to select one of the three Insignia symbols, which then reveals a multiplier. You can win between 600x and 6000x coins up to $1250 on this bonus round
Contract bonus: This feature is elaborate in both its scope and its payouts. It’s triggered when the laptop symbol appears anywhere on reels 3, 4 and 5 taking you to a series of additional screens all offering a variety of different gameplay and payouts
Graphics and Sounds
Like Tomb Raider this is a pokie machine designed with very much with the Playstation generation in mind, with menacing CGI graphics, a dark colour scheme and a host of violent imagery. The Hitman himself is the most common symbol and he is animated after any win. The Contract bonus feature plays just like a computer game with brief bios and mugshots of the assassination targets, and voice-over instructions to guide you. Overall, the game is reminiscent of a high-tech movie thriller, with ominous choral music underscored by a throbbing electronic beat (which can, however, be muted).
The maximum jackpot available on Hitman is 270,000x coins, so it’s possible to win a payout of $67,500 in the Contract bonus feature, while the jackpot in the Insignia bonus ranges from 600x – 6000x coins (a maximum payout of $1250).
The game offers a number of other very sizeable payouts in addition to the lucrative bonus features e.g. 5x Hitman with a telescopic sight symbol wins 4000x number of coins played
Hitman is a game that offers a number of special features including expanding wild symbol which completes all wins, two bonus features, with maximum payouts of $1,200 and $67,500, 18x free spin feature where all wins are doubled and the special insiginia and contract bonus rounds.
