What is “Hoffmania” mobile slot about?
Hoffmania from Greentube, a gaming provider owned by the Novomatic group, is a 5 reel, 3 row mobile video slot which doesn’t use paylines. Instead, winnings are based on 3 matching symbols being next to each other. The betting range is 0.4 to 40 coins, with a possible fixed jackpot of 200,000. Plenty of free spins are available, with a multiplier, in the bonus round, the Hoff himself is a wild symbol, and the game is designed to work smoothly on iPhones, Android smartphones, and tablets.
Look & Feel
Hoffmania mobile is bright and simple. A vivid background in sunset colours is the home of a set of reels which are lightly flaming. The symbols are basic but varied – with letters and numbers in block font and bold colours resting on plain black backgrounds, pretty ladies in t-shirts, golden Hoff statues, and the grinning man himself all featuring. This keeps gameplay simple and swift.
Game and Winnings
This slot does not utilize the usual system of paylines. Instead, if 3 matching symbols land next to each other, the player wins a payout. These payouts are calculated in the usual way, based on the value of the symbol. The total possible combinations mean that there are, in effect, 243 ways to win in this game.
When the golden Hoff scatter symbol appears 3 or more times across the reels it appears on (2, 3, and 4), the free spins bonus round starts. Initially, at least 5 free spins are awarded, and a multiplier of 2x bet. Then, for every scatter symbol that appears during the free spins, another 1 or 2 free spins or an increase in multiplier are awarded – there doesn’t seem to be a fixed upper limit on the values these can reach and what happens here is random. A larger number of free spins can also be retriggered if 3 scatters line up during the bonus round – this will add at least another 5 free spins.
The Hoffmania slot logo is the wild symbol in this game, and can substitute for any other symbol except the scatter to create the required 3 matching symbols. It is also the highest paying symbol in the game, with 5 of them in a row paying the 200,000 coin highest win.
This game features a “Gamble” button, which allows the player to play double or nothing with their winnings. It is in no way compulsory, as players can choose instead to simply “Bank” their winnings and continue normal gameplay.
