According to the myth, Hercules was the son of Zeus who loved to demonstrate his extraordinary strength; he traveled from one world to another, defeating all kinds of mythological creatures and overcoming all sorts of obstacles. A half-man, half-God, Hercules had the heart of a real hero.
Hercules is one of the biggest heroes of Greek mythology. H5G picked him to be the protagonist of their video slot Tales of Hercules, a 5-reel, 40-payline slot with attractive graphics and a fabulous selection of bonus features.
In Tales of Hercules, the demi-god is one of the highest paying symbols, along with a golden apple, a goddess, a lion and a stag (the Golden Stag of Artemis). The rest of the paytable consists of regular playing card symbols A, K, O, J and 10. Here’s where the twist in the tales is revealed: all of the high-value symbols can appear as regular icons or split/double symbols. For example, the double stag will replace two regular icons by occupying only one reel position instead of two. The same applies to double Hercules, double lion, etcetera. The apple can appear in form of a triple symbol and replace three of the single ones; apple only appears on reels 1 and 4, as well as the stag. Hercules appears exclusively on reels 2 and 5. The goddess lands on reels 1 and 4 only. The lion lands on reels 2 and 5.
The game also comes with a Wild symbol and a Free Games symbol. You will be able to see double and triple Wilds replacing all regular base game symbols and substituting for single Wilds, increasing the winning potential substantially.
Hitting three Scatter symbols is enough to activate the Free Spins feature, but they have to land on reels 2, 3 and 4. The reward is 6 spins free of charge on an alternative set of reels to spice things up. You can’t win any additional spins, unfortunately, but the Wilds make up for it. Any Wild symbol you collect during free games will remain in position for the rest of the round. On the following spin it will double itself and then triple itself, boosting your wins until the end of the feature.
Tales of Hercules has a maximum potential of 1,000x your stake which can be achieved in several different ways: 15 Wilds or golden apples, 14 Hercules symbols, 14 lions or 14 stags, for example. High 5 Games made Tales of Hercules a medium variance slot, which means it may take a while to trigger free spins and long winning combos.
If you’re having trouble understanding how Wilds work in Tales of Hercules we recommend trying it for free before you stake real money on it. Once you place actual bets, the best way to return your cash and profit is to wait for the free spins and collect as many double and triple symbols as you can. Tales of Hercules is available on mobile, too, in case you feel like treating yourself with a bit of Greek fun on the go.
