Ready for a compelling, exciting slots game about Greek mythology which promises huge jackpot payouts and exciting bonus features? Well, to be honest, you might look beyond the Hercule Son of Zeus slots game. Hell (or Hades or the Underworld, if you like) if we know. As the 21st century marches on, the institutionalized fascination with ancient mythologies seems ever more bizarre. Often told are the tales of Greek and Roman gods and seemingly increasingly frequently those of Viking and Egyptian deities. And if the conquistadors had not so thoroughly destroyed Mesoamerican cultures in the 16th century, mightn’t schoolkids be taught Aztec and Incan lore?
Yet, aside from the occasional animated film or box office bomb, these mythologies fail to capture the imagination like the modern myths of, likesay, superheroes and galaxy-spanning starship captains. We’d wager that few very few North Americans and Western Europeans clamor for more stories about Apollo and whatnot. The interesting exception? Slot machines, of course. To this sub-genre may we add the Hercules Son of Zeus slot.
For backstory, the Hercules Son of Zeus slots game is themed on the old “Labors of Hercules” stories featuring the superhuman tasks that our mythological hero must undertake.
In terms of gameplay, the Hercules Son of Zeus slot has a 5x4 gameboard 50 paylines. You’ll be paying for all those paylines, however, fixed as they are. The very flaky-looking Hercules (What the hell is that thing on his head?) is naturally the highest-paying symbol.
The symbol marked WILD is the wild; imagine that. The oversized and quite ugly Zeus medallion is the scatter: This appears on reels 2, 3 and 4, i.e. the middle three, only. Landing three on a spin awards the player with a scanty eight free spins.
The minimum wager in Hercules Son of Zeus is 50¢, in the traditional penny slots fashion – as though one had a choice to bet less. Max bet would be $250.
If playing at max coinage, a $40,000 payout may be won in the Hercules Son of Zeus slots game. Otherwise, the top single-spin jackpot win in this Hercules slot would be 800x the payline bet. These payouts are won when five Flaky Hercules symbols land on one of the 50 paylines.
Okay, here goes: Folks, there just isn’t much here. No bonus multipliers anywhere, no video bonus round and a max payout of just 800x? IN addition, it’s hard to believe this game was released after, likesay, 2009 in terms of free spins. Seriously, *eight* free spins only with, again, no bonus multiplier? Not to mention no retriggering of free spins nor bonus features in said free spins round? And of course there’s absolutely no retriggering going on, either.
We’re not sure whether the casino game software developers behind Hercules Son of Zeus felt safe enough in the popularity of the Hercules myth as well as this imaginary fanbase’s depth of knowledge
