Hercules High and Mighty Bonus
The special features that come with the Hercules High and Mighty slot game are;
- Free spins are triggered when three or more golden coins fall onto your active paylines. Three coins gives 8 free spins, four coins gives 12 free spins and five coins gives the maximum of 20 free spins. A different set of reels come into action when you trigger the free spins and the Mighty Reels are active during this feature, if you can spin in an expanding wild anywhere on your reels. Free spins can be re-triggered. You can get up to 20 free spins on top of your current free spins if you can find 3 or more scatter symbols on the reels whilst playing your free spins, or you can increase them via the gamble, but it is possible to lose them all.
- Big Bet – this feature is famous with all Barcrest slots and allows you to choose between three betting options; £20 awards five Big Bet spins with Mighty Reels coming into play when an expanding wild lands on the reels, £30 also offers 5 Big Bet spins and the Mighty Reels are triggered with an expanding wild spins onto the reels – but not only that, the low paying symbols on your reels are removed. Finally, the £50 Big Bet options offers the features of the £20 and £30 bets with expanding wilds being locked in place until you spin in a win.
- Mighty Reel feature is triggered when an expanding wild 3-symbol high positions itself fully in view on your reels. Now, this is where the fun starts because the top set of reels becomes active and the number of your paylines doubles – giving even more chances to win, especially when the wild expands to cover the whole reel.
When the Hercules High and Mighty slot game loads on your screen, Hercules stands between two pillars as if to welcome you to his kingdom. The reels are set between the two pillars and there are chains keeping the reels in place. Look beyond those chains and you will notice more reels and more symbols which come into play when you trigger the Mighty Reel feature.
There’s a demo version of Hercules High and Mighty, which allows you to get used to its features without spending real money. Probably a wise decision to have a practice, as the Big Bet feature can be quite overwhelming to newbies. The free play link is above.

There’s plenty of chances to win and you can access this slot game via your desktop, mobile or tablet devices.
