Hercules & Pegasus Theme/Symbols

The Hercules & Pegasus slot game looks terrific (as do all Pragmatic Play slots). Based on son of Zeus (Hercules) who is famous for his strength and the mythical winged divine horse, the game an epic feel to it as you’re taken high up to Mount Olympus.

Symbols include A, K, Q, J and 10 royals as well as vases, gold harps, ancient Greek temples and the Hercules & Pegasus logo – the latter is the most rewarding with 2, 3, 4 or 5 in combination giving you 0.1, 2, 10 or 20 times your stake. Hercules and Pegasus appearing together is the wild symbol and replaces all symbols bar the Hercules, Pegasus and bonus symbols – 2, 3, 4 or 5 will give you 0.1, 2, 10 or 25 times your stake.

Random Spin features

In the base game, a choice of 3 scrolls can randomly appear – you then choose 1 of the scrolls to trigger a random feature. They offer the following:

  • Hercules Wilds feature – Hercules wilds are added to the screen in random positions. There is a chance that a respin will follow with random Hercules wilds appearing.
  • Pegasus Wilds feature – Pegasus wilds are added randomly on the reels. There is a chance that your winnings will be subject to a 2x multiplier.
  • Bolts of Zeus feature – during a spin, stacked Zeus symbols are added to the reel strips. Once the spin ends, al stacked Zeus symbols transform into a randomly chosen symbol.
  • Bonus feature – guarantees that bonus symbols land so you can play 1 of the free spins features.

Hercules Free Spins feature

The Hercules Free Spins feature is triggered when a bonus symbol lands on reels 1 and 3 alongside a Hercules bonus symbol on reel 5 – then an unlimited number of free spins are awarded. During the feature, the red potion bottle symbol can hit on reel 5. When it lands, more Hercules wilds symbols are added to the reel strips. Once you land 5 potion bottle symbols, the feature ends.

Pegasus Free Spins feature

The Pegasus Free Spins feature is played when the bonus symbol appears on reels 1 and 3 as well as the Pegasus bonus symbol on reel 5. With an infinite number of free spins awarded, blue potion bottle symbols appear on reel 5. Each time it lands, the multiplier increases by 1 up to a maximum of 5x. The feature ends once you’ve seen 5 blue potion symbols appear.

Hercules and Pegasus Free Spins feature

Finally, you have the Hercules and Pegasus Free Spins feature which is activated when the bonus symbol lands on reels 1 and 3 alongside both the Hercules and Pegasus symbols on reel 5 (all simultaneously). With unlimited free spins on offer, the red potion bottle can land on reel which adds more Hercules wilds to the reels.

The blue potion bottle can also land on reel 5 – each time is lands, the multiplier increases by 1 up to 5x. With either potion bottle lands 5 times, the feature ends.

High variance – 2,500 x stake wins

The Hercules & Pegasus slot is an entertaining one which is packed full of features. Well designed, I like the random features in the base game. However, it’s all about the 3 free spins features as this is where the bigger payouts will come from.

The 5x multiplier in the Pegasus Free Spins feature and Hercules and Pegasus Free Spins feature can result in payouts of up to 2,500 times your stake on each free spin (with the 5x multiplier). With an RTP of 96.5%, Hercules & Pegasus is another good online slot from Pragmatic Play.

If you like the Greek mythology theme, Playtech’s Age of the Gods would be my choice as it comes with plenty of Greek gods, bonus features, huge potential wins and progressive jackpots.
