Hercules & Pegasus Slot Review – Pragmatic Play
Pragmatic Play is one provider who has been on the rise in the casino industry this year. The studio has made an astonishingly long list of games this year. Along with experimenting with new mechanics and thinking outside the box. The provider released multiple releases each month. The last game I reviewed was ‘Honey Honey Honey‘, which is full of exciting features. However, the low max win of 400x per spin is a letdown.
There is news of the provider’s Christmas game for 2019. This game is titled ‘Sweet Bonanza Xmas’ set to release 28th November. Which is a previously released game ‘Sweet Bonanza‘ with new Christmas inspired artwork. This is slightly disappointing, however, some people are big fans of this game. Then one more release is scheduled 2 weeks after this Christmas release. Next from the provider is a new game titled ‘Hercules & Pegasus‘, which is available across all sites now.
Like stated in the game title, this slot is based on Hercules and pegasus. Hercules is the son of Zeus and most of us will recognize the name thanks to the Disney animated movie. Pegasus served Hercules, given as aid by goddess Athena.
Instead of another Disney remake, today we have Pragmatic Plays version as a slot. In the background is a beautiful realm in the sky of clouds. Visuals are inspired by Greek history and have a nice design. The character symbols have a more cartoon design, compared to the design of the background. Overall, visuals are well made, maybe the characters being seen more like in the background would be a nice addition.
Hercules & Pegasus has a classic setup of 5 reels by 3 rows, this includes 20 set pay lines. This game is medium variance due to the max win capped at 2,500x per spin and set RTP of 96.5%. You can bet from £0.20 – £100.
Hercules & Pegasus Slot Review Paytable & Symbols

There are also 4 premium symbols, these are represented by vases, golden harps, temples, and the game logo. There is also a wild symbol and 3 different scatter symbols. Hercules, pegasus and golden scatters for 3 different bonuses. The highest paying symbol is the wild symbol, which pays 25x for 5 across a pay line.
Hercules & Pegasus Slot Review Features
In the base game, while spinning, 3 scrolls can randomly appear on any spin. You will then need to pick 1 of the 3 scrolls to reveal a mini-feature. The 4 possible features are;
Hercules Wilds – Wilds are added to random positions. After an initial spin, a re-spin is possible with more wilds added to the reel set.
Pegasus Wilds – Wilds are added to random positions. There is a chance the win is multiplied by x2.
Bolts Of Zeus – Stacked Zeus symbols are added. At the end of the spin, all stacked Zeus symbols will transform into a random symbol. (Excludes wilds and bonus scatters).
Bonus – Guarantees the bonus symbols hit to win one of the free spin features.
There are 3 different free spins features in this game. Each is triggered in a different way and is unique from one another. The 3 bonus features are;
Hercules Free Spins
This feature is awarded when you land a golden scatter on reels 1 and 3. Alongside a Hercules scatter on reel 5. An unlimited number of spins are awarded. During this feature when a potion symbol lands on reel 5 more wilds are added to the reels. Only one potion symbol can hit every spin for this to happen. When the potion symbol lands a 5th time the feature will end.
Pegasus Free Spins
This feature is awarded when you land a golden scatter on reels 1 and 3. Alongside a pegasus scatter on reel 5. An unlimited number of spins are awarded. During spins when a potion symbol lands on reel 5, the multiplier will increase by 1x. The potion can only land once per spin for this to happen. When you land this symbol 5 times the feature will land, with the multiplier maxed at 5x.
Hercules And Pegasus Free Spins
This feature is awarded when you land a golden scatter on reels 1 and 3. Alongside a Hercules and pegasus symbol both on reel 5. This will award an unlimited number of spins. During the feature, landing a gold potion on reel 5 will add more wilds to the reels. Also landing a blue potion on reel 5 will increase the multiplier by 1x. Only one of the potion symbols can land each spin. The feature will end when you land 5 of either potion symbols.
Overall, this game is full of features and free spins. However, I think the volatility is a little disappointing and there is just so much going on in this game. There is no need for 3 different free spins features, along with 3 base game features. It just seems like too much for one game.
