Join the mighty Hercules, the son of Zeus, as he uses his miraculous strength and power to defeat various monsters on his adventures. Uplifting music plays in the background to keep everyone in good spirits, and you’ll get to spin the reel in order to meet all of the main monsters that Hercules needs to defeat on his adventures.
Hercules High and Mighty is developed by Barcrest, and can be played on both a desktop and using a mobile phone. It’s quite unique in comparison to other slot games designed by Barcrest. You definitely won’t find another game like this one.
When deciding to join Hercules’ on his adventures, you can expect the symbols in this 5 by 5 reel grid slot game to fit the theme. There’s Zeus, Hercules’ father, Alcmene, the mortal mother, Pegasus, the Nemean Lion, the Lernean Hydra and Cerberus. The Lernean Hydra is the 3-headed snake and Cerberus is the 3-headed wolf. There are also 4 low value symbols, which consist of a spade, a clover, a diamond and a heart. Hercules is the wild symbol in this game. It can be used to fill in for any other symbol.
Zeus, who is the mightiest god in the myth, is the highest paying symbol. When there are 5 Zeus symbols in an active payline, Zeus will use his powers to net you 500 times your line bet. Although Alcmene has no powers, 5 of these symbols in a row can win you 200 times your line bet. All wins pay from left to right.
Hercules has a lot of monsters to face. To take a spin on Hercules High and Mighty, you’re going to have to place a bet on as many as 50 lines. The more lines that you bet on, the more bonus lines you get on the Mighty Reel Bonus. You can bet anywhere from $0.01 to $5.00 on each line. High rollers can bet as much as $250.00 on each spin. That’s if you bet a maximum of $5.00 on all 50 lines.
An interesting feature of this game is that the return to player (RTP) changes depending on the bet amount. If you place a total bet that is under $2.00 or 2.00 in game credits, you can expect a RTP of 94.00%. The RTP raises to 96.00% if you bet anything more than that.
If you ever get a full Hercules symbol on any reel, the MIghty Reel Bonus will be triggered. This will give you additional bonus lines. The amount of bonus lines you’ll be rewarded will be double the amount of lines that you played. For example, if you bet on 10 lines, you’ll get 20 lines in the Mighty Reel Bonus. On the other hand, if you bet on 50 lines, you’ll get 100 lines in the MIghty Reel Bonus.
With each spin, you have a chance of collecting gold coins. The gold coin symbols are scatter symbols. Collecting 3 of them will win you 8 free spins. 4 gold coin symbols will win you 12 free spins, and 5 gold coins symbols will win you 20 free spins. An additional gold coin during the bonus round will reward you with an additional free spin.
The free spins will play the same number of lines and at the same line bet and total bet as the game that triggered the free spins. The free spins begin with the chains down on the reel and without the mighty reels. Any wild symbols that appear on the reel during this time will also expand.
Take a bigger risk by playing the Big Bet Games. You’ll be given the option of betting either $20.00, $30.00 or $50.00 when playing with real money or 20.00, 30.00 or 50.00 in game credits. Any of these options will give you 5 spins. During the Big Bet Games, it’s possible to trigger the free spins. In addition, the same paytable is used and the wins are all paid out at the end of this feature.
With the $20.00 or 20.00 in game credits option, you’ll only enjoy getting the wild symbols to expand if they appear on the reel. If you take a bigger risk by betting more than that, all of the low value symbols, which include the spades, the clovers, the diamonds and the hearts, will be removed from the board as well, so that you’ll only be playing with high value symbols.
One of the main benefits of the Big Bet Games is that they offer a higher RTP of 98.00%. This is extremely high as far as slot games go, and you’ll have an incredibly good chance of landing a winning combination from any spin.
