Reel Hero Introduction 

Welcome to the future! Specifically, the future according to Malta-based developer Wazdan, whose vision is very much influenced by the aesthetic and mood of the 1980s. This is the neon-lit setting of Reel Hero, a 5-reel, 3-row slot centering around 4 superheroes on a quest to save the world. Each one of these futuristic characters - the gun-wielding Altiera, the hacker Rich, the cyborg Jax and the laser glasses-wearing Victoria - has the ability to bring unique modifiers to the reels, so long you collect their associated symbols! 

Reel Hero Game Features

The shiny and chrome Reel Hero slot offers 5 reels, 3 rows and 20 fixed paylines. The aim is to hit 3 or more matching symbols across adjacent reels, starting from reel 1 and moving from left to right. Despite the futuristic theme the symbols on offer are of the familiar fruit machine variety, with an airbrushed look. Diamonds, sevens, bells and stars make the high pays, while A, K, Q and J royals take the low-paying role. The orange and silver wild can substitute any symbol on a payline other than the scatter, which portrays the 4 protagonists of the Reel Hero saga. Hit 3 or more scatters anywhere on the reels to earn free spins! Each hero also has an own symbol on the reels. You cannot form paylines with these guys. Instead you need to collect them during play, and when you manage to fill the respective counter you will trigger their unique Hero Bonus feature. 

Reel Hero Free Spins and bonuses

Earning free spins in Reel Hero is a case of hitting 3 or more scatters anywhere on the reels. This earns you 10 free spins in a round complete with 2 random Hero Bonus features. These features will be active until the end of the free spins round to potentially increase your winnings. A +3FS symbol might also appear on the reels during the free spins. Hit one anywhere on the reels to earn 3 additional free spins. 

Reel Hero's biggest draw is, of course, the titular heroes and their bonus feature. Note how the top of the slot carries a counter for each hero? This is filled by hitting the respective character's symbols on the reels. Once the counter is filled, the Hero Bonus feature is activated. Rich hacks the reels to expand any wilds present to cover the entire reel, before locking it for a free respin, while Victoria shifts the reels in order to create new paylines. Altiera shoots 4-6 wilds on the reels to bring about an additional win and the cyborg Jax destroys all winning symbols from the reels. This results in a cascade with new symbols falling in the empty space, leading to new payines. 

Reel Hero Payouts

The diamond is the highest paying of the regular symbols in Reel Hero, with a full payline of 5 bringing you 500x your initial stake. Of the remaining high pays, the star is worth up to 300x, the seven 200x and the bell 100x of your bet. Moving on to the low pay, the A can bring up to 50x your stake, the K 30x, the Q 20x and the J 10x. Look out for the wilds, as filling all 15 positions on the reels will earn you no less than 1,000x your total stake!

Reel Hero Graphics and Sound 

Wazdan's vision of the future involves a lot of neon blue and purples! The background is a blue grid, behind which you can spot the jagged peaks of a glowing polygonal mountain range. There is also a glowing starfield in shades of purple and pink, and sometimes you will spot the occasional streaking meteor. The reels themselves are bordered in blue chrome, while the symbols are rendered in a shiny airbrushed style. Then there are the heroes, who will come to animated life whenever their bonus feature is activated! Topping the Reel Hero package is suitably synth-based 80s soundtrack and dramatic audio effects.
