New Slot Stars Hercules and Pegasus
Those of you with a soft spot for Greek mythology will definitely want to take a look at the latest slot from Pragmatic Play because it stars both Hercules and Pegasus. That’s actually the name of the game, too, so you should have no trouble finding it in the lobby of your favourite venue, and you can then settle down to enjoy some of the greatest myth-based action to be released this year.
About Hercules and Pegasus
If there is anyone out there who isn’t familiar with Hercules and Pegasus, allow us to bring you up to speed in the briefest time possible. Hercules is said to be the son of Zeus, and is famous for his many and varied feats of strength, which include the slaying of the nine-headed Hydra and capturing the three-headed Cerberus, more commonly known as the Hound of Hades. Pegasus, on the other hand, is a winged horse, and although there isn’t much of a relationship between Pegasus and Hercules in classical mythology, he is said to have served Zeus, so it doesn’t take too much artistic licence to suggest that he might have assisted Hercules from time to time.
Stunning Art in a Cartoon Style
Hercules and Pegasus is a five-reel slot which – like the Hercules movie released by Disney in 1997 – does a great job of imagining how these two big names of Greek myth might have worked together. Whilst this game has a proud cartoon style, the artwork it contains is beautifully intricate, and most of the action takes place against a sweeping view of Olympus. Symbols on the reels include the playing card ranks of 10, J, Q, K and A, a vase, a harp, a temple, a Hercules and Pegasus logo, a wild and three bonus symbols.
The soundtrack of this game is as epic as the events it portrays, combining pleasingly synthesised choral voices with a majestic rhythm, and the event-triggered sound effects stand out nicely from the main theme without being jarring.
As you are playing the main game, it is possible for three scrolls to drop down. This is a random event, and when it takes place you will have to choose one of the scrolls. When you have chosen, one of three features will be revealed:
Hercules Wilds will randomly add Hercules Wild symbols to the reels for the next spin. Another respin can also be triggered with random wilds being added
Pegasus Wilds will randomly add Pegasus Wild symbols to the reels for the next spin. If any of those symbols help you to win, your prize could also be doubled
Bolts of Zeus will add stacked Zeus symbols to the reels. When you have spun the reels, any stacked Zeus symbols will transform into a randomly selected symbol.
Three Types of Free Spins
You can trigger three types of Free Spins rounds in this game, and the type you trigger will depend on the combination of bonus symbols that you get, as follows:
Hercules Free Spins are triggered by getting a Gold Bonus symbol on the first and third reels, as well as a Hercules Bonus symbol on the fifth reel. You will be given an unlimited number of spins, and when an orange bottle symbol appears on the fifth reel, additional Hercules Bonus symbols will be added to the reels. The feature ends when five bottles have been collected.
Pegasus Free Spins are triggered by getting a Gold Bonus symbol on the first and third reels, as well as a Pegasus Bonus symbol on the fifth reel. An unlimited number of spins will be given, and every time a blue bottle symbol appears on the fifth reel, a multiplier value will increase by x1. The multiplier maxes out at x5 and the feature ends when you have collected five bottles.
