Happy Hooves slot REVIEW

Happy Hooves ReviewA lot of people have a thing for horses, and Happy Hooves will be right up your alley if you are one of them. The visual presentation is realistic and cartoonish, and this is the 3rd PowerNudge installment from Pragmatic Play. The mechanic is usually tweaked a bit between releases, and this is the case this time as well.

Grouping symbols and wilds into 4 different colors is unusual, and the base game revolves around the Mystery Symbols that trigger PowerNudge Respins. Mystery symbols reveal wilds, scatters or multipliers, and the PowerNudge Respins bonus round starts you off with at least 8 mystery symbols. Nudge Up symbols can prolong the feature, and this can lead to payouts up to 5,000x your stake.

Happy Hooves Slot Features

The pay symbols are split into 4 different-colored groups, and each group comes with a low and high value symbol. The 4 high-value horse symbols pay between 1.875 and 3.75 x your stake for 5 of a kind wins, and you also have 4 different-colored Wild Symbols. These are blue, purple, green and red wilds, and they step in for pay symbols of the same color to help complete wins.

You can land Mystery Symbols on any reel, and these trigger the PowerNudge feature when they appear. The mystery symbols will reveal either a golden symbol or one of the colored wilds in the base game, and golden symbols spin to reveal either a scatter or a multiplier. All reels with mystery symbols nudge down one step per respin, and the process repeats until all mystery symbols are gone.

You trigger the PowerNudge Respin Bonus Round when you land 3+ scatters anywhere in sight, and you get at least 8 mystery symbols across 2 reels as the bonus round starts. The mystery symbols will then do their thing, and nudge like in the base game. The bonus round is over when no more mystery symbols are in view.

However, mystery symbols can reveal Nudge Up symbols during the bonus round only, and this nudges the mystery symbols upwards. You get the same amount of upward nudges as there are Nudge Up symbols in view. A win multiplier increases by +1 per nudge/respin as well, and non-UK players can purchase the bonus round for 100x the stake.

Happy Hooves Slot - PowerNudge Respin Bonus Round

Review Summary

We’re not really sure about the whole colored group of symbols concept, and it can be annoying when you get wilds that don’t match the colors. It’s unique at least, and some players may like it, but it doesn’t seem like a concept that will go mainstream anytime soon. The visual presentation is kind of bland and generic, but horse lovers get plenty of specimens to behold.

The PowerNudge Mystery symbols feature is lifted from Push Gaming’s popular Razor Shark, but Happy Hooves lack teeth and punch in comparison. Still, the feature and the bonus round does contain a certain amount of unpredictable entertainment value, but it’s hard to compete with the original when the max win is “only” 5,000x your stake.

If you enjoy Happy Hooves Slot you should also try:

Razor Shark - is the popular Push Gaming release that’s also famous for smashing its own win cap. It comes with a razor reveal multiplier that can go as high as x2,500, and you get nudging mystery stacks in the base game and in the bonus round. This can lead to payouts up to 85,000x your stake.

Bronco Spirit - is a Pragmatic Play installment in the spin cycles genre, and wilds are collected and released every 10 spins. This keeps the base game more interesting, and you get multiple bonus round options. The feature comes with roaming wilds, and you can win up to 1,472x your stake.

Buffalo Stack 'n' Sync - is a western animal slot from Hacksaw, and the stack ‘n’ sync respins feature can generate full-screen wins. The win can be boosted by stampede reels multipliers, and there are 2 unique bonus rounds to look forward to as well. The max win is a very decent 10,000x your stake.
