There's a little mixed mythology going on with this online slots game from Pragmatic Play. Hercules was not the son of Zeus. Hercules doesn't even appear in Greek mythology - he's a figure of Roman legend, and his parents were Jupiter and Alcmene. We think that when Pragmatic Play was putting this slot together back in 2017, they were thinking of Heracles. Heracles is a very similar figure in terms of who he is and what he represents, and he was indeed the son of Zeus. We guess 'Heracles: Son of Zeus' just didn't have the same ring to it. Anyway, now that bit of historical accuracy is out of the way, let's get on with looking at the slot!

Hercules Son of Zeus Developer - Pragmatic Play

Pragmatic Play has been a big name in the world of slots for some time now, but they've never had a year as great as they did in 2018. It was a marquee year for the company, who took home a bevy of prizes from the gaming industry's annual awards ceremonies. Their animal-themed slot Wolf Gold, in particular, got an excellent reception from players and critics alike; for many of them, it was the best slot which came out all year.

You never have to wait long for Pragmatic Play to follow up on a success; as they average between two and three new online slots each month, they tread over familiar ground as often as they come up with new ideas. Wolf Gold already has a sequel of sorts in the shape of Mustang Gold, and you’ll also find connections between their extensive list of Oriental-themed slots. Greek history isn’t the only type that the provider finds interesting either; they’ve used Ancient Egypt UK Slot as an inspiration before too, as demonstrated by Egyptian Fortunes Online Slot.

Malta is home for the company, who released their first slot in 2007. Before they were even ten years old, they’d published more than one hundred online slots, and they’re on target to pass 200 somewhere in the early 2020s. Beyond that, the sky seems to be the limit for them as they consistently find ways to delight both traditional and modern slot fans.

Despite the confusion in the title, Greek myth is definitely the source of inspiration for this slot, with heavy use of the theme in both the visuals and the background music. As is always the case with Pragmatic Play slots, there’s a strong visual style to the slot, with solid colors and dramatic graphics. The deep blue reels are framed against the giant, imposing columns of a Greek temple, with a cloudy sky barely visible to either side. The majority of the room on screen is given over to the reels, and with good reason - they’re an expanded set, consisting of five reels and four rows. Within that structure, we have fifty fixed paylines, and so there are plenty of chances to win.

Despite the large number of positions on the reels, we have a surprisingly low number of symbols to deal with - there are only six base game symbols in total! All of them are taken from Greek legend, and so you may have to forgive our lack of expertise in the subject as we attempt to describe them to you. The least valuable of them is a purple bird which we think might be a griffin. After that, there's a ram, a green creature with tusks that we can't even take a guess at, a blue bull, and the three-headed dog Cerberus, who according to Greek lore guards the gates of Hades and stops any sinners from escaping after they've been condemned to spend eternity there. Sitting above all of them is, of course, Hercules, who for some reason is wearing a lion's head as a hat. We guess he's had a busy day.

Hercules: Son of Zeus also had a wild symbol, which comes in the form of a large silver coin, and can be used to substitute for all other base game symbols to create winning combinations. The exception to that rule is the scatter symbol, which is a large silver coin with the word 'ZEUS' stamped on it. Perhaps it's pocket money from Hercules' dad? As well as working as a scatter, it also holds the key to accessing the one bonus feature which Pragmatic Play have included in this slot.

Hercules Son of Zeus Slot Bonus Features

As a rule of thumb, online slots players shouldn't expect too much out of Pragmatic Play when it comes to including bonus features in their slots. It's not their usual method of putting slots together. As they focus on the end of the market who just like to load up a slot and start spinning the reels, they keep things simple by generally only including one. That's never a worry, though - it tends to be a good one!

The one they’ve decided to include in Hercules: Son of Zeus is a Free Spins feature, which can be triggered by landing three scatters. The silver coins can only be found on the middle three reels, so triggering the feature means grabbing all three of them in one go. Your reward is six free spins, which may sound like a low number, but it gets better.

Before each of your free spins, one extra wild symbol will be added to one of the middle three reels, and will remain on that reel until your spins are over, meaning your chances of winning improve on each spin. Not only that, but finding just one more scatter symbol awards you an extra spin. It might take a while to find three at once to trigger the feature, but single or even double scatters turn up semi-regularly. Unless you’re very unlucky, you should be assured of considerably more than six free spins by the time all is said and done. Once you’ve won ten or more, the reels are packed with wild symbols, and wins should happen big and often.

Hercules: Son of Zeus isn't cutting edge or revolutionary, but nor does it pretend to be. It's a well-put-together slot with a great free spins feature, and should be a welcome addition to your list of favorites if you enjoy the Greek theme. You'll just have to forgive Pragmatic Play for getting the name of the slot's hero wrong!
