About the Manufacturer
Back in the 1980s and 90s, Barcrest was a well-known name in UK pubs and amusement arcades due to its profusion of popular fruit machines and one-arm bandits. In keeping with the times, Barcrest started creating desktop and mobile slots in the early 2000s when the company was acquired by IGT, and in 2011, it became part of Scientific Games.
Barcrest's most popular mobile slots include Rainbow Riches, Monopoly Big Event, and Crown Jewels.
Appearance and Sound Effects
The Hercules High and Mighty mobile slot is designed to look like the entrance to a towering Greek temple, and in the background, you can see blue skies, fields, and trees.
Hanging from the roof of the temple are six metal chains which partially obscure and effectively lock the upper half of the reels. The lower half of the reel set consists of five columns, each of which is five symbols high, and on it appear famous figures from Greek mythology such as Zeus, Pegasus, Cerberus, the Hydra, Alcmene, and Hercules.
The slot uses a simple electronic tune as you spin the reels, and more dramatic noises when significant events occur such as the chains being raised and lowered or the Bonus symbols landing on the reels.
A significant but optional part of the gameplay in Hercules High and Mighty is the Big Bet Feature, which gives you a range of benefits with the Free Spins Bonus. Each Big Bet that you place gives you five spins and comes with three betting choices: £20 lets Hercules become an expanding wild; £30 removes low-value symbols from the reels and adds expanding wilds, and £50 includes everything you get with the £30 Big Bet Feature as well as sticky wilds.
The Hercules wild can replace all symbols except the scatter in all game modes, but if you place a Big Bet, each time the wild appears on the screen, it expands to fill its respective reel and temporarily doubles the number of active paylines by raising the chains covering the top half of the reel set.
The Gold Coin scatter unlocks the Free Spins Bonus when it lands anywhere on the reels three times, and it gives you between eight and twenty free games depending on how many scatters activated the Bonus. As well as the potential to win more free games with extra scatter symbols, the Free Spins Bonus gives you access to the entire reel set for the duration of your free games once the stacked Hercules symbol appears.
All line pay symbols must appear on an active payline and on consecutive reels, beginning with the far-left reel.
