This slot is a very strange product for me because there are really great features the slot offers but somehow playing the game and seeing these kind of mentioned extras in work I still don’t feel that Head Hunter would be a real great rewarding slot and sadly never felt that I would some really big prizes here.
I’m starting with one of the most important symbol with Wild. This Aboriginal(s) figure replaces others in winning combinations but doesn’t have own paying ability and sadly it just appears only on the third reel but what makes it a very intriguing icon is the fact it can multiply wins from x1 up to x5. This multiplier value is not selected randomly and have more imaginative working scheme as the multiplier depends on how many Aboriginals can be seen on the Wild pictogram. I like this little uncommon solution but I love to see if the Wild would extend its functionality to other reels too.
The top prize of Scatter is quite good as it can award up to 200 times of total bet prize but this Adventurer symbol becomes very interesting when it fulfills its secondary job and activate free spin feature. Every time when 3 or more Adventurer appear anywhere on the reels 7 free games are awarded which can be re-triggered during bonus and this is a very important and practical attribute at this slot. During extra games every single appearing Scatter takes us closer to gain another series of free spins as we have to collect 5 such symbols to re-activate this bonus session. Every new free spin sequence brings increased multiplier number and it can be repeated 5 times (6 if I count the original 7 spins) and at the end the last 7 spins are played with a great and promising x7 multiplier.
It sounds very great and this kind of game rule is really working and once I had luck to witness it when I could go through all of phases till the end. Getting 42 extra games and working with x2-x7 multipliers should be a really memorable session but in my case it wasn’t. I was really excited as I was seeing additional bunch of free spins were coming and coming but sadly the better line wins avoided me and the last 7 spins which would have brought the possible best results just came by without giving any wins. I still could collect around $110 for my $1 bet and perhaps because of my greediness but I couldn’t be really happy about it because I expected more from the session and thought ‘If I don’t win big here then when can I?’
Anyway, maybe it was just a bad run or something like this but the game holds some potential in it and has some other useful features. The slot provides the common Jackpots (Mini, Minor, Major) which are triggered randomly but the game own top prizes are also decent as the best paying symbol (Lion) can award up to 7500 coins if at least one Wild from the best kind is a member of that combination and the game also uses the well-known Feature Guarantee extra which triggers free spins in a special determined spins.
Generally, I think this is a great game and I like to think that my not so remarkable free spin run was the exception and the game has the ability to be more rewarding than that. Anyway, I like this slot and its funny environment and during normal games the winning combinations and the payouts are acceptable and behave as they should but the free spins should be a little bit more open-handed and I get to this conclusion not just because of my mentioned run but I think it must be generally more rewarding. I think I can say at the end that this is a pleasant slot with decent qualities and I like to play here.
