Play Pool Shark online: Check out our slot review below

Pool Shark Introduction

“Pool shark” refers to a great pool player involved in hustling. However, if pool billiards is not your thing, you might first leap to a conclusion that we are talking about a swimming pool full of sharks. Habanero’s cool slot Pool Shark combines both, as you have a rather menacing-looking shark playing pool on watery reels full of bubbles. Surely the shark is in his element in water, and whether you play pool or not, you can also be in your element while spinning the five reels on three rows, picking up your prizes on 1 – 25 pay lines according to your choice. Get splashing and read on to know what this entertaining slot has in store for you!

Pool Shark Game Features

As in several other Habanero titles, also in Pool Shark you have the possibility to gamble your winnings after each winning spin. By clicking the illuminated Gamble button, you get to try to beat the dealer by choosing a playing card of a higher value than that of the dealer’s. If you are successful, you double your winnings and have the chance to either gamble again or take your winnings and return to the base game. In case the dealer wins, you lose your prize and return to the base game. 

Befittingly for one of the most notorious predators in the world, the shark symbol is the Wild symbol. The shark can only attack the reels 2, 3 or 4 and when he makes his appearance, he substitutes for all other symbols, apart from the Scatter symbol. That is not all, as the shark also doubles your prize when he forms part of a winning combination! 

The black eight-ball is the Scatter symbol which pays out in any position on the reels. The scatter wins are added to line wins and multiplied by the total bet. What is more, the Scatter symbols also trigger the Free Game Feature – more on that in the next paragraph!

Pool Shark Free Spins and Bonuses

When three or more of the Scatter symbols, the eight-balls, roll on to the reels, 12 Free Games are awarded. What makes this feature particularly thrilling is that during the first three Free Games your prizes are doubled, tripled in the next three, quadrupled in the following three Free Games and multiplied by five in all the rest rounds! The Free Game feature can even be retriggered up to four times if three or more Scatter symbols appear anywhere on the reels during the feature. 

Similarly to most Habanero titles, also Pool Shark features three Progressive Jackpots which are triggered at random and may be won at any point in the game. You can keep your eye on the prize while playing as the different Jackpot sums – Minor, Major and Grand - are displayed above the reels at all times. Progressive Jackpot wins are added to other wins. 

Pool Shark Payouts

You can choose to use 1 – 25 pay lines. All symbols pay left to right, with the notable exception of the Scatter symbols which pay in any position. 

The highest-paying symbols award prizes when you land at least two of them on an active pay line. These include the shark’s pool-playing mate with a cigarette in his mouth, the waiter who is a red lobster, as well as the delicious-looking cocktail, the triangular rack, and the cue chalk. Of the lower-paying playing card symbols you need to land minimum three on an active pay line to win.

Pool Shark Graphics and Sound

The slot can only be described as bright-coloured and very entertaining, with bubbles floating upwards on the watery reels that are filled with colourful characters. All the clever little details match the theme perfectly, such as the triangular rack that has some sea vegetation growing from it, as well as the cue chalk that is also obviously in the bottom of the sea surrounded by sea vegetation. Of course, one cannot forget the amusing pool-playing shark! Also the soundtrack of the game, that embraces both the underwater-world and the noisy pool bars, suits the theme – while spinning the reels you just hear mysterious bubbling sounds as if underwater, but when landing big a win or playing the Free Games Feature you get to listen to some rock’n’roll!

The control panel can be easily located below the reels. This is where you can easily adjust your bet by choosing the coin value, the number of pay lines in use as well as the bet lever. If you wish to use the AutoPlay function, simply click the AutoPlay button and choose the number of automatic spins up to 500. You may also choose the stop the automatic spins if your balance decreases by a certain amount or if a single win exceeds a certain limit. Should you wish to check out the paytable or game rules, simply click on the information button on far left. 

Pool Shark Conclusion

If you have been looking for a fun and entertaining slot with thrilling features and a possibility to snatch a Progressive Jackpot, look no further – Habanero’s Pool Shark has it all!
