How good are you at kicking a ball around on a football field? You can find out without leaving your computer or mobile device behind by checking out the Hat Trick Hero online slot game right here.
We’ve already had an opportunity to play this game, so we thought we’d share what we learned about it with you here. Are you ready to see if you can score some prizes by tackling the reels of this slot game?
Are we in the hands of a good developer?
Absolutely, thanks to the developer being Betsoft. No doubt you’re aware of many of their other top slots already.
Can you play a demo?
Yes, Betsoft never lets us down in this respect. They’ve launched this game with a demo available too.
You’ve already got the theme…
Yes, it’s football, as you’ll see from the first image – and way beyond.
How many marks does the design get?
We would need to give it 10/10 here. We might guess that would be true of any Betsoft game release, but the grass on show in the opening image alone is so real, we felt the need to give it a quick trim!
Let’s check out the basics for Hat Trick Hero slots
This is a five-reel game, with three football-themed or standard symbols appearing on each of those reels. The Power Shot icon, showing a footballer kicking a ball, is the wild symbol. The game doesn’t have a scatter, nor does it offer any progressive jackpot amounts.
How many paylines are there?
This footballing game has 25 lines available. They’re fixed, meaning you just need to choose a wager to cover them all.
What are the bets like?
This isn’t a penny slot as the smallest coin amount is four cents. That means you’ve got to wager a dollar per spin at least.

This explains more about the features and icons in the game. It’s ideal to read before you play, although we found we learned more from the demo game too.
Look out for the Hat Trick Hero bonus round
If you find three or more Power Shot wilds on the reels in one spin, you’ll unlock this bonus. The more goals you make with a Power Shot, the higher the score goes on the Score Meter. You must fill the meter to achieve a payout.
The round starts with a respin, before all wilds on the reels advance to the left, where the goal sits outside the reel set. This carries on until there are no more Power Shot icons in view. You won’t pay for any of the respins that occur in this game. The aim is to reach 15 goals to win the amount shown in the score box. If you run out of Power Shots to reach that total, it resets to zero and you return to the base game.
Are there any free spins here?
No – although you have got the respins in the feature above.
The game offers a decent RTP
It reaches 96.23%, which is quite good, we think.
Our rating for the Hat Trick Hero game
We doubt this is going to appeal to players who don’t love football, and there are plenty of football-themed slots around already. However, we have a different spin on things here, with the Power Shot feature standing out as something different. It’s a good 7.5 out of 10 game.
How big is the top prize?
According to Betsoft, the biggest single prize is 1,260x the maximum bet amount. Of course, there are many other prizes available, as you’ll see in the paytable.
Check out the game in demo mode
Yes, don’t forget you can learn more about it by playing the practice version. There is no need to risk a cent until you’re ready to bet for real.
Are you going to play some footie for real?
Well, not for real… but at least on the reels of this game. Check that budget, think about the spin wagers, and see whether Hat Trick Hero is worth it.
Superb on mobile too
Hat Trick Hero isn’t just for computers. It’s ideal for iOS and Android platforms too, whether on smartphones or tablets.
