Hellboy Action Hero Arrives At Virgin Games

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM–(Marketwire – Oct. 21, 2010) – Virgin Casino, part of the leading online gaming company – Virgin Games, has today announced the launch of Hellboy, a brand new slot from leading online game developer, Microgaming. Hailing from Mike Mignola’s most coveted imaginative comic action hero of the nineties, ‘Hellboy’, this latest game is a featured slot with 5 reels and 20 playlines.

Licensed from Dark Horse Comics, the slot features many of the iconic characters from the original comic book, such as Prof. Trevor Bruttenholm, Johann Krause, Abe Sapien, Liz Sherman and all the others, led by the stone-fisted and de-horned red demon-for-good himself.

Warren Eloff, Head of Products at Virgin Games, commented: “Hellboy is a complete package – it offers fantastic rewards and is action packed to keep players on their toes. Our customers are sure to become big fans of this action hero slot in no time.”

Hellboy is the Wild in this game, helping players to win profitable combinations by substituting for other symbols, whilst his oversized stone fist is the Scatter, more importantly triggering the thoroughly entertaining Underworld Bonus. Most exciting is its four level Underworld Bonus round, where players have to search for superhero team members throughout a tunnel network, winning bounces all the way along.

Founded in 2004, Virgin Games has over 1,000,000 players and over 200 games on its site. Through the introduction of a custom built Virgin Games platform in 2008, Virgin Games seeks to provide its players with the widest possible choice of casino games. A growing selection of games can be found at Virgin Games from a number of producers including Microgaming, WagerWorks, Cryptologic, Freemantle and Ash Gaming.
