Hercules High and Mighty
Hercules: High and Mighty is a 5-reel, 100-line slot, and it is one which is considerably more expressive and inventive in terms of its gaming structure than other Barcrest developed slots we have seen. The game comes with a Big Bet Mode, too, which can certainly spice things up a bit. This Greek mythology themed slot dishes out maximum wagers which stretch from 50p per spin, right up to £500 a spin. That’s not a bad wagering range at all for a Barcrest slot and is one which even high-rollers may wish to get onboard with. In terms of jackpots, though, Hercules: High and Mighty is a little on the light side, at just 250x your total bet.
There are two sets of reels in Hercules: High and Mighty. The main set is located below the others and suspended by chains. This 5×5 reel set is where all the action takes place, with the free spins taking place in the reel set above them. Wild symbols take the shape of Hercules and aren’t that special in and of themselves.
Hercules: High and Mighty’s free games feature is only triggered when players can land 3 of the golden coin scatter icons anywhere on the reels. Players will be rewarded with a total of 8, 12 or 20 free spins for locating 3, 4 or 5 scatters during the base game.
In the free spins bonus round, players will get to prosper from Mighty Reels. They are triggered when an expanding wild icon appears on the reels. The number of paylines double in this feature and the expanding wilds play an important part in dishing out wins as they grow in stature. The Big Bet Mode which can be activated in the base game can make the Mighty Reels easier to trigger for 5 Big Bet Spins, so this may be something you are interested in looking at.
Hercules: High and Mighty isn’t a bad little effort for Barcrest. One cannot help but think that the casino software developers have somewhat overcomplicated things with their twin-reel and Mighty Reels structure, though. Sometimes with slots, simpler is better.
