Hercules & Pegasus
Hercules & Pegasus is a 20 payline, 5 reel and 3 row, medium to high variance video slot powered by Pragmatic Play. The visual fidelity of the slots is seriously good! Come to think of it, it is more akin to watching a Disney animation film unfold before your eyes than playing a slot machine.
If we peel away the layers, we see that it has a Greek mythology theme and a winning potential (non-progressive jackpot) of 2,500x (£$250,000) your stake on a single spin. Furthermore, built into its mechanic are Hercules and Pegasus wilds with 2x multipliers, transforming Zeus symbols and 3 Free Spins features with multipliers that can reach as high as 5x. As you can see, it’s quite a busy slots!
The action starts with £$0.20 up to £$100 per spin, and it is playable on Android, iOS and tablet devices. Pragmatic Play’s Aladdin and the Sorcerer is equally impressive and chockablock with free spins and multipliers. Should you have some extra cash lying around, take a peek at it. The game can now be played at all our leading UK online casinos.
Hercules & Pegasus has an epic feel about it. Theme wise it’s based on Hercules, the son of Zeus, and his mythical horse Pegasus. Mount Olympus serves as the backdrop for the reels. Symbols on them are cards from 10 to Ace, the golden harp, amphorae pot, Hercules & Pegasus, Hercules, Pegasus Wild and the Bonus Logo. Hercules & Pegasus has an average return to player percentage (RTP) of 96.5%. When 5 Bonus logo symbols appear on any position on the reels, you’ll receive a payout of 20x your stake.
You’ll notice that 3 wilds pop up sporadically. They are the Hercules, standard wild and the Pegasus wild. When they appear, they form winning combinations by substituting symbols adjacent to them. The Hercules and Pegasus wild also offers a cash prize of 25x your stake when 5 of them appear.
The base gameplay is further enhanced when 3 scrolls appear. They hover above the reels, offering one of the following randomly triggered features:
• Hercules Wild: On your next spin, a bunch of Hercules wilds appear across the reels.
• Pegasus Wild: On your next spin, Pegasus wilds are sprinkled across the reels. During winning combinations, a multiplier of 2x also kicks in.
• Bolt of Zeus: A certain amount of stacked Zeus reels are randomly picked, and when the reels stop on it, they become random symbols.
Hercules Free Spins
When we looked at the paytable, especially at the role of the Bonus symbol, it confused us a bit. We came to the conclusion that the Bonus symbol acts in an alliance with the Pegasus and Hercules Bonus symbols. When the Hercules Bonus and the Golden Bonus symbols appear on the 1st and 3rd reels respectively, the Pegasus Free Spins feature is initiated.
The good news is that an unlimited amount of free spins can be awarded. Plus, for every red potion bottle that pitches, extra wilds are awarded which carries win multipliers from 1x to 5x. But, when the red potion bottle appears on reel 5, the free spins feature ends.
Pegasus Free Spins
When the Bonus symbol pops up in reels 1 and 3 as well as the Pegasus Bonus on reel 5, you’ll trigger the Pegasus Free Spins bonus. When a group of blue potion bottle symbols appear on the 5th reel, an unlimited amount of free spins will be awarded. For every blue bottle potion symbols that pitches, the multiplier increases by 1x up to a maximum of 5x. The free spins feature ends when the 5th blue potion bottle appears.
Hercules and Pegasus Free Spins
When the Bonus symbol emerges on reels 1 and 3 in conjunction with the Hercules and Pegasus symbols on reel 5, you will initiate the Hercules and Pegasus Free Spins feature. Once again, an infinite amount of free spins are up for grabs.
Keep an eye on the red potion bottle. When it appears, extra Hercules wilds are added. The blue potion bottle is also responsible for increasing the multiplier from 1x to 5x every time it appears. When the blue potion bottle appeared for the 5th time, the free spins feature ends.
Hercules and Pegasus is another cracking 3D slots from Pragmatic Play. Don’t underestimate it just because it’s a pretty face. Beneath its sharp exterior is a high variance slots that will tame any reckless play. On the bright side, if you strike a fistful of wilds during the free spins, not only will you unlock the maximum win multiplier of 5x, but you’ll also win the jackpot of 2,500x your stake. If you enjoyed the game, we recommend NetEnt’s Arcane Reel Chaos.
How Many Bonus Rounds Does It Have?
The main game has 4 bonus modes that can be triggered on any random spin. They include Hercules and Pegasus wilds with 2x multipliers, transforming Zeus symbols and three Free Spins features where an unlimited amount of free spins with wilds can be gained with a top multiplier of 5x.
Can I Play The Game On My Mobile Phone?
Yes, you can. Certain Android Casinos will prompt you to download their app at the Google Play store first while others allow you to play the game in your phone’s browser.
Is There a Winning Strategy I Can Use To Win?
Unfortunately, there is no winning strategy because each spin is governed by a random number generator (RNG). You can improve your chances at winning by accepting the casino’s welcome bonus, setting a bankroll aside and grinding until you trigger the Free Spins. Obviously, all this must be done within the ambit of sensible play and within the confines of your bankroll.
Do I Need a Specific Budget Before I Can Play Hercules & Pegasus?
No, you don’t because the minimum bet per spin starts with a mere £$0.20 up to a maximum of £$100. The higher your average bet per spin, obviously your bankroll must be more significant than that. Therefore, if your bankroll is £$100, your average bet should be in the vicinity of £$0.50 to £$1.50 per spin.
