Relax Gaming guides players up Mount Olympus to tell the mythological tale of Hercules in its latest jackpot-spinning slot release, Hercules Unleashed Dream Drop.
Hercules Unleashed Dream Drop is a 5×5 reel slot with 259-ways to win and a maximum win of up to x10,000 the player’s wager.
94 per cent
Low value symbols are represented by playing card royals, with Jacks, Queens, Kings and Aces available. These symbols can offer between x0.2 and x0.5 the player’s bet, depending on the number of identical symbols that land on a winning payline.
Meanwhile, blue lions, green bulls, purple hydras, a fiery red Cerberus and Hercules himself depict the high value symbols, offering between x0.3 and x4 the chosen bet.
Bonus text scatters can also appear, providing access to the bonus game mode when three or more land on the same spin.
When five identical high value symbols appear in the first reel during the base game, a respin feature is activated. This causes the symbols and any identical symbols appearing on other reels across the board to become sticky, while a free respin occurs around them.
If another identical symbol lands on the board due to this respin, the feature will be repeated. This allows the chance for a large number of paying combinations to be formed with the respin symbol.
Special lightning symbols can appear during these respins, causing the board to expand by one row each time they drop into play. A maximum board size of 10×5 can be achieved with this symbol.
Moreover, the identical symbols that appear during the respin can appear with multipliers of x2, x3, x4 or x5, which will be applied to any payline wins that are formed with those symbols during the respin.
Once a respin occurs with no identical symbols or lightning symbols dropping into play, the feature will end and all payline wins that have been formed will payout their prizes.
For the bonus game mode, this respin feature is enhanced, as three spins are allocated to the player instead of just one.
The game mode starts with the lowest-paying high value symbol – the blue lion – appearing as a full stack in the first reel, but this symbol can be upgraded as the game mode plays out.
Special shields can appear in this game mode, with values of one, two or three. These values will be collected in a meter beside the reels. Once this meter reaches a value of 10, the symbol will be upgraded to the next-highest paying high value symbol.
As in the base game respins, symbols can appear with multiplier values of x2, x3, x4 or x5 that will be applied to any wins formed using said symbols.
Furthermore, Relax Gaming’s Dream Drop jackpot function is available in this game.
Randomly triggered jackpot spins can occur in the base game, and when five DD symbols land on the reels in this feature, players will be taken to the Dream Drop bonus.
Five varying jackpot reels appear in this jackpot feature, while special shields appear beneath them on each spin. Each of these shields will present a number that will be used to fill the space on the shield’s respective jackpot reel.
Once a jackpot reel is filled by the shields, it will award its respective prize. Five jackpot prizes are available, with players hoping to be lucky enough to claim the millionaire mega jackpot.
