The Isle of Man-based Online Gambling software provider Microgaming Casinos today launches its latest flagship video slot, HELLBOY.

Licensed from Dark Horse Comics, the game introduces the iconic action hero to the world of online slots. Created by Mike Mignola, Hellboy is popular with fans, appearing in comic books, DVDs and on the big screen.

The theme has been faithfully translated into a new five reel, 20 pay-line video slot, with a comic book style of presentation. The game features original characters such as Professor Trevor Brutenholm, Johann Krause, Abe Sapien, Liz Sherman and a host of others, all led by the stone-fisted and de-horned red demon, Hellboy.

Roger Raatgever, Microgaming CEO, says: "At Microgaming we believe in coupling appropriate branded content with high-quality, original games. We continually introduce pioneering, state of the art games to our customers and Hellboy is no exception. We're sure that players will enjoy the rich visuals and comic book style action, combined with Microgaming's innovative game play. We are delighted to be announcing the launch of this iconic branded game."

Anita Nelson, Vice President of Sales, Marketing and Licensing at Dark Horse, commented: "We are thrilled to be associated with Microgaming, a top quality gaming company. Hellboy has a legion of loyal fans and the new slot game faithfully recreates the Hellboy world that they know and love. Hellboy is one of our most popular brands and we know that the players will appreciate this cutting edge game. "

Hellboy features as the Wild, helping players to win rewarding combinations by substituting other symbols; whilst his oversized stone fist is the Scatter, which triggers the thoroughly entertaining Underworld Bonus. This is a four-level, second screen bonus feature where players have to avoid blocked tunnels in the search for other team members and rewards, encountering beasts along the way.

Players who complete all four levels and reach the Chamber of Fire get the added rewards of the Relic of Power. This exciting feature can also be triggered in Supermode, a randomly awarded Free Spin bonus of ten spins which carry up to three held Wilds.

There is also a Gamble feature where wins can be doubled or quadrupled if the correct card suit or colour is predicted. The betting range on Hellboy offers something for every player, ranging from 0.01 to 0.25 with a maximum bet of 50.00, which can generate rewards of up to 25,000.00 in the base game, the same on Free Spins and 8,400.00 on bonuses.
