When the game loads, the first thing that you’re certain to notice is that this is by no means an ordinary game when it comes to betting options and win lines. Instead, Quasar Gaming has decided to include the AllPay system, which is the same as 243 ways to win and ensures that any symbol that appears adjacently to another in a winning combination will pay. This affects your betting options by requiring 0.50 to activate the reels in full ‘ 0.10 for each reel as opposed to a set number of lines. The total spin amount can be adjusted as always using the plus and minus buttons, but the multiples are already decided for you.
When making this choice, you can refer to the pay table to see what Hoff and all of the other symbols are worth based on your chosen stake. When you’ve settled on a bet, it is time to get the reels rolling and the choices continue as you can opt either to spin the reels manually using the start button, or opt instead to make use of auto play. The latter eliminates the possibility of the gamble game, which is covered in more detail below, but will keep the reels rolling and the prizes stacking up until you hit the bonus feature.
Speaking of bonus features, Quasar Gaming always likes to throw in a good bonus or two on any of its branded slots and Hoffmania is absolutely no different. The symbol to keep an eye out for when looking to trigger the round is the Golden David Hasselhoff icon and it certainly helps that it is a scatter symbol. You need three or more in order to trigger the round and they can appear absolutely anywhere on the reels, even if they’re not adjacent. The basic element of the bonus round entails five free spins. Things get even better based on the number of scatters in view, with an additional one or two spins, plus an increased multiplier for every one in view above three. The spins then play out automatically with any relevant multiplier applied to prizes and you can scoop even more free spins within the round itself whenever you land three or more additional Golden Hasselhoff symbols.
Hoffmania also packs in the trusty gamble game, which has long been the source of turning modest wins into bigger ones. Basically, as long as you’re spinning the reels manually, a winning spin will offer the option to gamble. In that game, you put your prize up against the house on a game of chance. Guess the outcome of the next game correctly and you pick up double the prize value, alongside the opportunity to gamble the full amount once again.
