Cheesy retro goodness with the official David Hasselhoff slot from Novomatic
Hoffmania™ from Novomatic, is the official David Hasselhoff online slot, and is a fantastic dose of 80’s and 90’s cheese. Without doubt, ‘The Hoff’ is an international legend, and whether you remember him as Dr. Snapper Foster in The Young and the Restless, Michael Knight in Knight Rider or Mitch Buchannon in Baywatch, his face will bring on a surge of nostalgia! Of course, in more recent years, Hasselhoff has also been a judge on Britain’s Got Talent and starred in the sitcom Hoff the Record. And, let’s not forget his mysterious godlike status in Germany and Austria! So, it comes as no shock to learn that Hoffmania™ is a popular title at EnergyCasino.
In terms of layout, Hoffmania™ is presented in a typical 5-reel, 3-row, 5-payline layout. Three or more of the ‘golden Hoff’ Scatter symbols trigger five free games with the Hoffmania feature – where getting another ‘golden Hoff’ symbol during the free games awards either one or two further free spins and increases the multiplier by one (max. 5x). The free games are played with the current bet. Additionally, the Hoffmania symbol serves as a Wild, substituting all symbols except for the Scatter.
Other symbols consist of David Hasselhoff himself (worth up to 4,000), blonde and dark-haired Hoff groupies (worth up to 3,000 each), ‘The Hoff’s’ autograph (worth up to 2,000), and ‘A’ (worth up to 1,000), ‘K’, ‘Q’ and ‘J’ (worth up to 600 each), and ’10’ and ‘9’ (worth up to 400 each).
Not just for fans of ‘The Hoff’ – pure slot escapism with a great vibe and lots of free spins
Stylistically, Hoffmania™ has that late eighties or early nineties feel, with bright neon pinks, purples, red and yellow, and airbrush-style images. When there is a winning combination, the symbols are animated, with the portrait of David Hasselhoff even turning into a large video of him. The game also features official sound bites from ‘The Hoff’ for wins etc., and free games are accompanied by one of his pop hits, adding to the overall upbeat mood of this shamelessly cheesy slot. In true Novomatic style, the reels are equipped with retro electronic sound effects, giving the feel of a land-based slot.
Hoffmania™ was obviously designed with David Hasselhoff fans in mind, and it is very retro cheesy, but that is exactly what makes it so much fun. Even if you have no idea who ‘The Hoff’ is, you will still quickly find yourself engaged by the authentic upbeat atmosphere, and will be pleasantly surprised by the depth of gameplay – especially during the free games, that have a tendency to get extended, and extended by winning more and more free spins. All in all, Hoffmania™ is a very well-produced game, with a fun theme and excellent gameplay, typical of the Novomatic family, and it is sure to remain a popular title at EnergyCasino.
