New Relax Online Slot Game: Heroes Hunt Megaways
Relax Gaming is on a roll this month with new online casino games. On top of very recently releasing TNT Tumble, Relax developers prepared another new video slot for its debut.
Heroes Hunt is a result of the new Silver Bullet partnership with Fantasma Games, bringing a truly unique and exciting experience to the Relax Gaming games library.
Fantasma and Relax = Heroes Hunt
First, we should explain the Silver Bullet program at Relax Gaming. It is an offering that partners the expertise and distribution of Relax with new partners. These partners can then focus on creating new and innovative games to the online casino world while Relax does the rest.
One of those partners is Fantasma Games, a game studio based in Stockholm and just founded in 2017. Fantasma’s vision is to “create slots beyond gambling,” new games that take players to new worlds.
Heroes Hunt does just that, making animals into kings and heroes. King Sasha the sixteenth rules the kingdom on Dreadmaw Mountain, but he faces a demon who spreads fear after waking from 60 years of slumber. King Sasha offers a generous ransom – and any treasures found in the process – to anyone who can slay the dragon.
The typical fantasy good-versus-evil game experience has a bit of a cartoon edge and many more features than usual in Heroes Hunt.
Relax officially released it on April 7, 2020.
General Information and Payouts for Heroes Hunt
The game opens with a purple haze creating a background for the cave castle. Players are then asked to choose one of three heroes with various skills to play the game.
- Wizard (crow with purple orb) = explosion feature (explosion removes its square and all non-winning regular symbols around it in 2×2 or 3×3 areas
- Warrior (lion with gold sword) = expanding wilds (wild covers the entire reel and adds a multiplier between 1x and 6x)
- Archer (squirrel with green arrows) = respins (respin symbol removes itself and 6-12 non-winning symbols around it for a respin)
Above the 6×6 grid, the chosen fighter is highlighted and ready to go.
Heroes Hunt Megaways offers 46,656 paylines with a maximum payout of 26,000x the bet. The RTP (theoretical return-to-player) is 96.26% to 96.65%.
The lowest bet possible is $0.20, and the options increase incrementally up to a max bet of $80.00 per spin. There is also a free-play option on most Aussie online casino sites that gives players a chance to play for free before wagering money on each spin.
Payouts occur when three or more identical symbols line up from left to right. The massive number of 46,656 paylines comes into play because of the “destroy blocker” symbols that continually increase the number of paylines possible.
As for the symbols, when playing the minimum bet of $0.20 and hitting six symbols on a payline, this demonstrates the worth of all of the symbols:
- Dragon = $4.00
- Warrior lion = $2.00
- Wizard crow = $1.60
- Archer squirrel = $1.20
- Crown = $0.80
- Gold coin = $0.80
- Green crystal – $0.50
- Purple crystal = $0.40
- Light blue crystal = $0.25
- Dark blue crystal = $0.20
All payouts in a particular spin are listed on the left side of the grid.
Heroes Hunt Features and Gameplay
There are special symbols that players should recognize for their ability to offer features.
- Blocker = empty gray stone
- Chest = awards hero points (EXP or experience points) or “mimic free spins” (base game only)
- Key = collect three to activate “dragon free spins” (appears only if all 3 heroes are unlocked)
An avalanche can happen, during which all winning combinations pay out and then disappear. There are no blockers or chest symbols in an avalanche.
A special avalanche follows explosions. During this feature, only identical regular symbols fall into place, and wins accumulate until no new combinations appear, at which time the entire feature pays out.
As for the heroes, the player chooses one with which to begin the game, but all three can be unlocked with EXP (experience points) from chest symbols. Three EXP unlocks another hero.
The journey to accumulating EXP is tracked in the circle to the right of the grid.
The chests have many powers. First, it can open up 10 “mimic free spins.” During that special bonus round, all three heroes are unlocked, and mimic wilds can appear on the second through fifth reels. They are actually called “mimic” wilds because they appear as regular symbols until they land, at which point them reveal themselves as wilds.
When all of the heroes are unlocked, players can collect key symbols. Three of them trigger 10 “dragon free spins.” Dragon symbols can appear on any reel during this bonus round, and each dragon destroyed by an explosion, expanding wild, or respin awards the payout plus an addition free spin. Dragons can also be destroyed during an avalanche.
When the “dragon free spins” round concludes, the game restarts. Players choose a new starting hero and work from the beginning to achieve the ultimate dragon round again.
