Hercules High & Mighty is a 5 reel, 100 payline slot which is powered by Barcrest – the game can be played from 50p to £500 per spin and is all about the son of Zeus (Hercules) in all his glory. Aesthetically grand and beautiful, it benefits from expanding and persistent expanding wilds, free spins and the Big Bet mode.

Looks wise, it will remind you of WMS Gaming’s Zeus which is created by Scientific Games who also owns Barcrest now. Set afoot of a temple, symbols on the reels include Zeus, Hera, Pegasus, Lion, Hydra and Cerberus. Zeus is the highest paying symbol giving you 250 times your line stake for 5 on a payline. They are all joined by 4 low value symbols (heart, spade, club and diamond).

The first thing you’ll notice about Hercules High & Mighty is the unusual reel layout – you have both the main game reels (at the bottom) and the Free Spin reels at the top. When it comes to the wild symbol, this is represented by Hercules himself.

The game is all about the Free Spins feature which is played when you find 3 or more gold coin scatters anywhere on the reels – 3 will give you 8 free spins, 4 will give you 12 free spins and 5 will reward you with 20 free spins. Now, the free spins use different sets of reels-bands as the Mighty Reels become active when any part of an Expanding Wild lands in view.

When a 3-symbol high Expanding Wild symbol lands fully in view, it triggers the Mighty Reels feature – the upper reel window opens with the number of paylines doubled. The wild then expands to fill the whole reel window! The good news is that 3 or more scatters during the free spins will retrigger the feature and give you up to 20 additional free spins taking your total to 40 potentially.

As with other Barcrest slots, there’s a Big Bet mode – you then have 3 options. The £20 Big Bet gives you 5 Big Bet spins where the Mighty Reels feature becomes active when an expanding wild lands in view. The £30 Big Bet also gives you 5 Big Bet spins with the Mighty Reels becoming active when an expanding wild shows up – the extra here is that low value symbols are removed.

Finally, the £50 Big Bet gives you 5 Big Bet spins when Mighty Reels becoming active when an expanding wild appears – this time it’s locked until you get a winning combination. All lower value symbols are also removed from the reels.

Hercules High & Mighty combines technology from both WMS and Barcrest with a unique and appealing mix – it’s all about the Free Spins feature where the expanding wilds really come into their own. I found it to be a medium to high variance offering with wins of up to 500 times your stake available on each spin.
