The grandiosity of this game is balanced by a simple setup. There are five reels, three rows, and 10 fixed paylines. The betting range is straightforward as well. You can wager €0.10 to €100 with each spin. This range is suitable for most players, both newbies and established veterans. When choosing your bet, keep in mind that all win multipliers will be applied to your total bet.
This game comes with quite a few options for customization. To begin with, you can control the music and sound effects separately, or turn them off altogether. You have the option to turn off background animation, which is especially useful for players with limited internet connection and data. Turbospin is available for faster gamerounds. Finally, Autoplay can be set from five to 100 spins at a time. There are optional win limits, required loss limits, as well as the option to stop Autoplay when a feature is triggered.
All prizes in this game are applied to your total bet and pay from left to right. The lower-paying symbols are colorful icons of 10, J, Q, K, and A. Land five aces to win 15x your total bet. Next, there are Hermes’s mythological symbols – his winged sandals, his staff, and his helmet. Finally, there’s the face of Hermes and a wild symbol surrounded by lightning. Hermes and the wild symbol share the biggest prize in the game. Landing five of either will award 65x your total bet.
A wild can replace any normal symbol in the game, and the appearance of any wild triggers the Walking Wild Respin feature. Each wild moves one reel to the left with every spin. When the last wild falls off of the leftmost reel, you will have one more respin before the feature concludes. Wilds also provide win multipliers that are equal to the number of wilds on screen. For example, a single wild has a 1x multiplier. Two wilds will each have a 2x multiplier.
The final symbol to keep an eye out for is the scatter. It’s represented by jewels on a red flag and can appear in stacks of three. There is no direct payout for scatters, but they do trigger the bonus feature.
The Wings of Hermes bonus feature combines free spins, walking wilds, and win multipliers for extra excitement. To trigger the free games, you need to land seven jewel scatters. The scatters you earn are tracked to the left of the reels on an enlarged version of Hermes’s staff, the caduceus. The tracker is emptied of all jewels if it’s not filled during one paid spin. It takes quite a bit of luck to land all seven scatters on one spin – but you don’t have to. All jewels remain in the tracker during respins. It’s much easier to land a wild and collect seven scatters over the course of four or five spins.
The bonus feature begins with a minimum of seven free games. You may collect more than seven jewels when the feature is triggered. If so, each extra jewel awards an additional free spin. After your initial spins are totaled your winnings are added together. Walking Wild Respins and multipliers are also present in the feature. You can even refill the caduceus with seven more scatters and if the final level is reached 3 extra free games are awarded when 7 additional scatters are collected.
The Wings of Hermes RTP is set to 95.36%. This is slightly above average for similar video slots. It’s unlikely this will hold much sway over whether or not you decide to play, though the free spins feature certainly may. The volatility of this game has not yet been released.
