Hooligan Hustle Slot Review 2021

Get ready for an away game with the firm and don’t forget to bring the knuckleduster in Hooligan Hustle from Play’n GO!

Hooligan Hustle has us taking to the streets where we’ll come to blows with the rival team fans on the mean streets of the UK. We’ve all sat in front of the TV to films like The Football Factory or Away Days, and as Football fans and Englishmen ourselves we enjoyed them, and now we get to live it in a slot!

Some may say that football hooliganism is very British, but it’s probably not a ‘tradition’ that we can be that proud of. Football hooliganism is basically violence perpetrated by spectators of each team at a football match. Gangs or ‘firms’ as they’ve come to be known often seek out conflict from their long standing rivals, which results in anarchic chaos with sometimes deadly consequences.

In all honesty, you’d have to be some sort of idiot to be a real football hooligan. The concept of justifiable violence between people with a different team preference baffles us, but we’d be lying if we said we wasn’t excited to pretend.

In real life we’re humble and well behaved spectators, but in Hooligan Hustle the ‘Fruity Firm’ are out to cause harm. We’ve got plenty of molotovs, fireworks and flares and we’re ready to cause chaos in the latest from Play’n GO.

Come and have a go if you think you’re hard enough.

Hooligan Hustle Base Game

Hooligan Hustle Theme

Play’n GO has done a stellar job at bringing Hooliganism to life in Hooligan Hustle, a glorious job in fact.

Either side of the reels you’ll notice opposing gangs who are ready to ‘ave it’, and in front of them are wrecked police cars, in an alleyway that could only be described as a total ****hole. Where Hoolgan Hustle really shines is the sounds, music and commnentry.

The indie music really gives Hooligan Hustle an upbeat feel, and the commentary from the cockney hooligan chanting various quips really does make you laugh.

Hooligan Hustle really won’t paint the fair people of the UK in a good light, but we love it. It’s amusing, and it’s not something that has been done before. Hooligan Hustle really grabs your attention, we’d dare anyone to load up Hooligan Hustle and not give it a spin, because it really is intriguing in the weirdest kind of way.

Hooligan Hustle Our Verdict

Hooligan Hustle is an eccentric and over the top portrayal of hooliganism where unrest, chaos and anarchy come out to play.

It really grabs your attention as something that seems pretty unique. Hooligan Hustle makes even the most placid of Football Fans crazy enough to pick up some rebar and march onwards into an away day scuffle with amazing music, brilliant graphics and plenty of different features thanks to the Rumble Row features.

Hooligan Hustle Free Spins

Hooligan Hustle really shiens when you get to Free Spins, which we found was surprisingly hard to get for a Play’n GO title. It may well be a misconception on our part, but we’ve always found Play’n GO games more forgiving in this aspect. Play’n GO always comes to mind when you’re looking for a quick bonus, but that doesn’t seem to be the case in Hooligan Hustle. Sometimes, hundreds of spins came and went without so much as a tease, but when you do eventually get there you’ll have an important choice to make.

How mad you go when you get Free Spins is up to you. Go for the Lairy bonus to make your presence known, go for the Riot bonus if you think you’re hard enough or go for the Anarchy bonus if you’re completely unhinged! The choice is yours.

Hoolgain Hustle looks pretty good statistically with 10,000x win potential and an RTP of 96.27%…in some cases anyway. Play’n GO are the main offenders when it comes to variable RTP, so watch out for the 94.27%, 91.25% or the downright unbelievable 87.27% or 84.24% variants.

Overall, we were thoroughly impressed with Hooligan Hustle. It’s stupid in the best sense of the word, entertaining, rough and hilarious.
