New Wazdan Online Casino Game: Reel Hero
In this chaotic time in the world, people often want to escape. Many people joke about going to outer space, where the problems just float out into infinity.
Game developer Wazdan has a solution. Join four superheroes with super money-making powers in Reel Hero. They take players into outer space on a journey filled with features and excitement. It is the perfect escape from real-world problems.
Unlimited Potential in Space
The latest online slot game release from Wazdan is Reel Hero, just released this month.
Less than two months ago, Wazdan wowed online casino players with its latest pokie product called Black Horse Deluxe. It took players into the Wild West for new adventures amidst brilliant colors and new features.
Reel Hero will do the same but in outer space and alongside four heroes. The background shows the limitless sky behind the planet, filled with spectacular pinks and purples. The grid blocks out the beaming sun as it prepares to set behind the mountains.
The soft techno is a soothing background noise, punctuated by the sounds of laser guns and other sound effects, as well as the soft female computer voice alerting players to features when they are activated. Those technology-based sounds match perfectly with the futuristic grid and its symbols.
This latest Wazdan release is a five-reel game with a 96.22% RTP (return to player) average.
Reel Hero Overview & Payouts
With 20 paylines, Reel Hero is one that also delivers a story with characters, in addition to a highly visual and audio-driven game.
The volatility is whatever the customer wants it to be. By clicking on the activity meter just to the left of the spin button, players can select low, standard, or high volatility. The low offers more frequent wins, high rarer but bigger wins, and standard falls in the middle.
Players can also choose the speed of the spins with the small button to the right of the spin button. The choices are normal speed, fast, and ultra-fast spins.
The lowest bet is $0.20 per spin, and the options go up sharply from there to $1, $5, $10, $20, $50, $100, $1,000, and $10,000.
As for payouts, with the bet set at $0.20 per spin, these are the payouts for five of each symbol on a payline:
- Wild = $10.00
- Scatter = $2.00 (plus free spins)
- Diamond = $5.00
- Gold star = $3.00
- Number 7 = $2.00
- Blue bell = $1.00
- Letter A = $0.50
- Letter K = $0.30
- Letter Q = $0.20
- Letter J = $0.10
Reel Hero Gameplay & Features
With four superheroes on hand to help players win more money, one of them is always just around the corner. Let’s meet the four of them and find out what powers they possess.
- Rich (male with mohawk hairdo) = Any wilds expand to the whole reel, and wilds lock on the reels for a free re-spin.
- Victoria (female wearing sunglasses) = Winning combination without a scatter moves one reel to the right, and new symbols appear on the first reel.
- Altiera (female with facial scar) = On a non-winning spin, random wilds (4, 5, or 6) overlay other symbols to create a win.
- Jax (male wearing gas mask) = Winning combination without a scatter replaces winning symbols with new ones to possibly create another win.
The heroes use their weapons and lasers to launch the features.
Note that the heroes do not appear at random during regular gameplay. As their photos appear as symbols on regular spins, their meter increases above the reels. (Each hero has his or her own meter.) Five appearances bring that hero into action for the next spin.
Three scatter symbols on a spin trigger the bonus round of 10 free spins. As those free spins are happening, players can trigger three extra spins every time the +3FS symbol appears. Additionally, two random heroes accompany the player to the bonus round to lend their powers and create larger wins.
Buy & Gamble
Wazdan offers some extra ways to spice up the game.
First, the “Buy” feature allows the player to click the shopping cart just to the right of the account balance bar. Prices are listed for each feature, typically Rich being the cheapest, then Victoria, Altiera, and then Jax. A round of free spins costs the most.
Then there is the biggest gamble in the game. Players can choose to “double or nothing” their winning amount of money by clicking the x2 button to the left of the win bar immediately after the win. This will then show the current winning amount of money and the double-up amount. Players can pick the red or blue car to win the race.
There are seven rounds of the gamble, so players can continue to double…or lose it all.
To simply take a win in Reel Hero, click on the hand with the dollar sign on it. If the player happens to click on the x2 by mistake, he or she can simply click on the hand in the middle of that screen and take their original win amount.
Where to Play Reel Hero
Players can test out the game on the Wazdan website for free. With so many features and unique options, players can get a feel for everything by competing for play money. This is also a good opportunity to test out the various volatility levels.
When the player is comfortable enough to play for real money, he or she should head to Joka Room and King Johnnie Casino, Kahuna Casino or Playamo Casino, all of which offer Reel Hero for Aussie players.
