Hercules High & Mighty Video Slot: Expanding Hercules Wild Triggers 10 x 5 Mighty Reels
Hercules High & Mighty is a 100-payline online slot from Barcrest, deployed via the SG Interactive Gaming Platform. This online casino offering, features a 3-tier heap of Wild Symbols that tends to expand into a towering and powerful 10-tier Stack of Wilds. The Wild Expansion causes all other reels to expand and transform the board into a 10 x 5 grid called the Mighty Reels.
The Mighty Reels furnish players with more paylines and symbols at no additional costs. However, the paylines available as win-patterns across the Mighty Reels are also based on the Bet currently at stake. In a normal course of reel-spinning events, only 5 rows and 5 columns of symbols are in play. Paylines become available once the grid expands. The numbers of which depend on the current Bet Level and/or Betting Option taken in activating the reels.
Hercules High & Mighty Online Slot: Wild Symbol
The image of Hercules, the Roman adaptation of the Greek divine strongman Heracles, represents the Wild Symbol of the game. In ordinary base game outcomes, only a full display of the 3-tier Hercules Wild expands into a 10-tier stack of icons along with the Mighty Reels.
During the Free-Spins Round, and if the game is running on Big Bet mode, a full or partial display of the Hercules Wild Stacked Symbols triggers the Hercules Wild and Might Reels expansion.
Hercules High & Mighty Online Slot: Bonus Game Symbol and Free-Spins Round
The Gold Coin image poses as the Bonus Game triggering symbol, whilst emerging in any row or reel. Whenever three, four, or five Gold Coins land as simultaneous outcomes of a base game spin, 8, 12, or 20 bet-free games will be awarded correspondingly. If another set of Gold Coin trigger-combination occurs after a bonus spin, the round resets and re-activates the corresponding bonus spin rewards.
Here, the Hercules Wild and the Mighty Reels expand even if only a portion of the 3-tier Hercules icon is in view.
