Hobo’s Hoard seems to be a classic five-reel slot until you actually start playing it. The theme of the games is a bit unusual. You will find yourself in the streets in the company of your new hobo friend trying to make your living. Most of you wonder if there is any chance to make money in the streets. Picking weird goodies along the pavements or rummaging through the dumpster full of trash seems anything but profitable. But you will be surprised when you learn how much money you could possibly get.
What do you need to know about the slot and how to spin it? The basic rules are quite ordinary. To win, you have to land a combo of at least three identical symbols on the line. The first paysymbol of the combination should land on the leftmost reel as all the wins are paid left to right. Only the highest win per line is paid, in case you hit several. The situation with scatter wins is a bit different. They are paid any way. And the bonus wins are added to the line ones. All the wins are multiplied by the coins stakes per line, except for the scatter wins.
All the paysymbols of the slot represent some weird stuff that you could find in a trash bin. Regular paysymbols are all sorts of food: cherries, lemons, pineapples, oranges and apples. They are relatively low paid. For five Cherries your line stake will be multiplied 75 times. For five Lemons your line bet will be multiplied 80 times. Five Apples will make you line stake 100 times grander, whereas five Oranges will multiply it 125 times. For five Pineapples your initial bet will rise 150 times. Shopping Cart symbol, if you hit five of those, will rise you line bet 250 times. The win will be the same if you hit a Nap-sack on the pole. The highest paid symbols of the slot are the Cardboard Box and Harry the Hobo himself. For the combination of five Boxes your initial bet will rise 500 times. For five Harries it will be multiplied 750 times.
Hobo’s Hoard is loaded with special features and bonuses. One of the special symbols of the slot is the Wild. It looks like a Trash bin. As usual, the Wild replaces a wining symbol in a combination. The only symbol it can’t replace is a scatter. But the Wild still is a paysymbol itself, so if you hit a combo of five Wilds, you will be rewarded with 7,500x of your initial line bet.
The Pop Can is the Free Spin scatter. If you hit a combo of at least three of those, you will receive ten free spins. The Free Spins’ mode comes with a 3x multiplier, so all your free spin wins are to be tripled. But Pop Can symbol is not only about free spins, it comes with a win. Hit a combination of five symbols, and you spin stake will be multiplied 50 times.
There is one more scatter symbol — the People Symbol. The combination of at least three People paysymbols initiates the Bonus Round. This symbol also comes with a win, a combination of five is worth 50 times your stake.
As for the slot’s interface, it’s so easy you’ll master it in no time. Select Lines button will help you to choose the lines you want out of the 15 available lines. Or you may choose all the 15. Also, you may select playlines by hitting the corresponding numbers on the side bars of the reels screen. The Select Coins button allows you to choose the number of coins staked per line. You may choose anything from one coin to five of them per line. The coins value is selected with the help of the + and – buttons. The lowest value is 0.1, and the highest is 1.
Slot’s spinning may work in a manual or auto mode. If you choose the manual mode, be ready to hit the Spin button yourself. In the Auto mode you wouldn’t have to do this. There, the spinning will go on nonstop until you either change your mind or run out of money. There is also a Bet max button, hit it and the maximum coins bet per all available lines will be placed automatically. All you would have to do is choose the coin value. In case of any questions, take a look into the Paytable section of the menu. It features all the rules and basic information about the slot.
