Hockey League Wild Match Introduction
If you’re a big NHL fan, you’re going to recognise some of your stars here. It’s the big game day and they’re on the ice fighting for the League Cup, which looks an awful lot like the Stanley Cup. There are some great ambient crowd noises, and the special symbols get their own sound effects. Although it’s quite simple in game play, Hockey League Wild Match is really dynamic to look at and the card symbols look fully integrated into the game .
Up for the Cup
There are 5 reels and 9 paylines available in Hockey League Wild Match, with 5 coin values from 0.01 to 0.5 credits and a maximum 10 bets per line, for a max bet per spin of 45 credits. This should suit the high rollers out there quite nicely.
Paytable plays and wins
Here’s how the paytable looks in Hockey League Wild Match with a bet of 1 credit paying out on a full house. All wins are paid in credits: Q: 15 J: 20 K: 25 A: 30 Player (Green background): 35 Player (Blue background): 70 Player (Red background): 100 Referee: 200 We like the way the reels behave differently when you might be about to score a big win, speeding up or spinning side by side when you land some stacked wilds.
It’s just different enough to keep your visual interest and get the adrenalin pumping!
League Cup crazy
The League cup is the wild in this game, and you’ll go wild when you see 5 of them right to left or left to right across the reels. This pays out 5,000 credits in addition to substituting for any symbol except the scatter. It’s classic pokie play, and from our test spins, it produces some fairly frequent winning combinations.
You’ll also get random stacked wilds, where reels 2, 3 and 4 are covered in wilds for even more winning combinations. This feature triggers randomly before the completion of any spin. The Hockey Puck is the scatter symbol. It rewards you with some free spins and multipliers, with 10, 15 or 25 free spins for 3, 4 or 5 on the reels. Every free spin win gets a 3x multiplier, so there are plenty of decent payouts to pick up from the puck!
Even though there are no fancy bonus rounds or mini games, the free spins are generous enough and the random stacked wilds feature is enough to keep any pokie player spinning. We like the look and feel of this game. It’s clean and dynamic and manages to capture something of the spirit of the sport, so we’re not calling hooking but going straight for goal!
