Hercules Unleashed Dream Drop Review
Hercules had a complicated life what with all his half-mortal problems and everything. Thankfully, Hercules Unleashed Dream Drop knows exactly what it is, and that is a simple game with a beast of a payout.
I thought we were in an ornate fountain until I took stock of the scenery—a rocky cove seems to be the destination. Quite what a marble sculpture is doing out here, is another question. The heavy stone reels crash their way through the centre of the screen and all around us are reminders of ancient Greece and temples that devote themselves to such fantastical stories. Looking for an epic soundtrack? You've got it! And for mobile gamers, all of this is available on smaller screens too.
My main concern with Hercules Unleashed Dream Drop is the lack of distinction between the two bonus areas. It feels like more could have been done to set them apart but the benefit is that you get to see some of the good stuff without needing all of the Scatter symbols to get you there in the first place. Some players outside the UK may have the option to head directly to the bonus game, but don't expect any direct access to the Dream Drop jackpot, obviously!
One of the downsides of playing a progressive jackpot title is the RTP figure. This one stands at 94%, which is pretty good and includes a 12% jackpot contribution—everybody needs to help push those prizes skywards! In the regular part of the game, 10,000x is the max payout but the Dream Drop jackpots could run into millions of pounds, and regularly do. The volatility might be extremely high but you will see regular action thanks to the 40.61% hit frequency.
If Hercules can't battle his way to great riches, then the rest of us have no chance! With its stacked symbols, respins, multipliers and DD jackpots, Hercules Unleashed Dream Drop could be an extremely interesting prospect for those searching for decent wins. Perhaps it won't satisfy those looking for the most modern features and intricate math models, but then again, most people don't pick up a progressive jackpot slot for that reason, do they?
