Down on your luck? Wandering the streets in search of a lucky break? Hoping that the kindness of a passing pedestrian will get you through another day? The world of Hobo’s Hoard follows a hard luck vagrant with dreams of making it big as he passes by a crowd of wealthy citizens waiting in line.
As the name suggests, Hobo’s Hoard is a hobo-themed slot game featuring up to five reels and fifteen pay lines. The games symbols include: a hobo, a hobo’s house, a soda can (scatter symbol), a crowd of people (bonus symbol), a trash can (wild symbol), a bindle, a shopping cart, a pineapple, an orange, an apple, a lemon, and a cherry. You can bet up to five coins per line with a maximum bet of $75 per spin. All wins pay from left to right only, except for scatters, which pay out for any line, and all bonus wins are added directly to payline wins.
The game features a number of unique characteristics to improve gameplay and increase chances of winning. The “soda can” and “crowd of people” symbols are both scattered, paying out 1, 2 or 50 times your total bet depending on the frequency of their occurrence. Players revealing three or more scattered soda cans win ten free spins with a three times multiplier.
Perhaps the game’s most distinctive feature is when a player spins for three or more “crowd of people” symbols on the reel, revealing the Hobo’s Hoard bonus game. The bonus game displays a crowd of five people: a middle-aged balding man, a hip teenager, a savvy businesswoman, an old grandmother and a sharp businessman. The player must select one of the five individuals displayed on the screen, each holding a distinct prize.
The game’s wild symbol is a “trash can”, which can be substituted for any symbol other than the “crowd of people” scatter symbol. As the game’s highest playing symbol, the “trash can” provides a player with the opportunity to win the 7,500 coin jackpot if they reveal five in-a-row on any of the selected pay lines.
Hobo’s Hoard provides smooth gameplay with an array of unique special features, interactive bonus games and a distinctive theme. The graphics, sound and presentation, coupled with the great top payout provide players looking for a new and exciting slot game with hours of entertainment.
