Story Of Hercules Expanded Edition Online Slot Review
Progressive Jackpot: No
This game is the expanded version of the Story of Hercules slot. Instead of the usual 5x3 reels that you get from the original, this expanded version features 6x3 reels. The game still has the same number of active paylines, which is 50. It also has the same atmosphere and game container design as the original. The background however has been enhanced with more greenery and more majestic skies in purple, blue, pink, and white.
As with the original, the game’s container is a Roman temple. It still has the elaborate columns, intricate scrollwork, and golden buttons. The Spin button is still located in the middle of the control panel and is still a distinct circle in gold.The Auto Play button is still on the right of the Spin button and on the other side is the Buy Feature button. All of these are in gold.
Increase or decrease your bet by clicking on the buttons with the plus and minus symbols on them. Lowest possible bet is .01 while the highest is 10. Each bet is multiplied by 50 active lines, so a bet of 10 means you are spending 500 on each spin. You can see your total bet under the Per Line field. Your balance is found directly opposite this, on the right side of the screen.
Just like the original, this game revolves around Hercules and his battles. Low paying-symbols are card numbers 10, J, Q, K, and A stylized to fit the game’s theme. High-paying symbols in this game are still the creatures that Hercules fights in his story. He is also part of the high-paying symbols on the reels. On the reels, you will see the Cretan bull, the Nemean lion, Stymphlaian birds, and the Lernean hydra.
The golden spinning sun is still the Free Spins symbol while the Wild symbol is still represented by the two gold shields. Multipliers on the reels are still represented by golden apples.
The same features that you get from the original game are still present here. These include the four different free spins that you can play one at a time. There is a new feature here though, which is the Unlock Free Spins feature.
Free Spins – Launched by the appearance of three or more of the Free Spins suns, you will find yourself travelling the Free Spins Journey map. The start of Hercules’ journey is with the hydra, followed by the bull, then the lion. The last is the birds.
Lernean Hydra Free Spins – For this round, you get 10 free spins. You also get a nudge function where a win launches a sideway nudge. When a winning combination appears after the nudge, a respin is awarded. If after each nudge, you get a win, you will be given another free respin. Respins will only stop when a nudge doesn’t result in a winning combination.
Cretan Bull Free Spins – The second free spins round awards you with 5 free spins. When the game starts, you get the entire bull on the first reel. This symbol moves down the reels until it gets to the end of the machine.
Nemean Lion Free Spins – This round rewards you with 10 free spins. The game’s special feature is an expanding lion symbol. If a part of this symbol appears on the reel, it is either expanded down or up.
Stymphlaian Birds Free Spins – This las free spins round on the map awards you 10 free spins. For this round, birds fly and crash on the reels, randomly creating extra Wilds.
