So how does the Hulkamania slot fare? Well, “lemme tell ya, Mean Gene,” as the Hulkster himself might have begun in his WWE days, it’s not bad but excitement is low until the bonus features kick in.
In regular gameplay, symbols include signs of wealth (though isn’t Hogan himself running into financial problems; thought we’d heard that on TMZ or somewhere), Hogan himself in various showy poses and the letters H-U-L-K.
The “Golden Wild” – it’s a standard substituting-wild symbol really, just gold in color – landing in the center reel triggers the like-named feature. Actually this is not so much a feature, but a one-time shot at having four game symbols replaced with wilds for a big payout on an otherwise losing spin.
The scatter symbol is a championship bet, of which Hogan wore with the WWF/WWE for four years. With three of these, the “Big Fight Bonus” round is launched. In this round, Hulk returns to the ring; the player chooses moves for him to execute for the pin and prizes.
Finally, the arm-wrestling icon can also trigger a special round, namely the “Arm Wrestling Bonus” when three of these bad boys land. This one’s a pick ‘em round leading to 15 free spins.
