Hercules: Son of Zeus Slot Features
Among the features that were considered for Hercules Son of Zeus, you will discover the wild, the symbol that is so often used in slot machines and rightly so. The wild is useful because it can be combined with any regular symbol and it can form a combination with them. That way, it can act as a replacement for a symbol that is missing and without which the combo couldn’t form. Wilds can’t act as replacements for scatters though. The image shown on these symbols has a temple’s entrance in it.
The Zeus Coin is the scatter of the game and it shall be present on the reels 2, 3 and 4. Having three scatter symbols appear during a single round can result in a round with 6 free spins. At the same time, the scatters will offer a small reward of 2x your bet. The reels which are used in the free spins are special, so you don’t get the same odds as in the base game. The middle three reels get one wild placed on them, at the start of each spin. These wilds are going to be locked in their position for the remainder of the free spins. Each scatter that you get at this point will add a single free spin to the total. There is no limit to the number of free spins that can be won.
Theme & Design
Hercules himself is going to inspire the action in this slot machine, and so the reels are filled with images of creatures that he encountered in his travels. From the three headed dog Cerberus, to the Minotaur and to creatures that look like boars, rams or eagles, the images are clearly taken from the Ancient Greece stories. The temple and the Zeus coin are the two feature symbols. There are a couple of card logos as well, with a bit of a Greek style inserted in their design.
Hercules: Son of Zeus is going to give you a proper Ancient Greece theme, with a couple of regular features added to it. It’s not a game that will stand out too much from the crowd.
