Key Facts

The Heroes Hunt Megaways slot is played on a grid of 6 reels and 6 rows with 46,566 ways to win. It is something of a misnomer to describe these as ‘reels’. The space where the game’s action takes place is more like a grid on which the symbols slide into place. The maximum size prize that you can claim from the game is 26,000x your stake. The bet sizes on offer range from 20p per spin right up to £100 per spin.

What is the RTP of the Heroes Hunt Megaways Slot?

The RTP for the Heroes Hunt Megaways slot is 96.65%, though this figure can range between 96.26% and 96.86% depending upon which feature you are playing. You can check how each bonus feature affects the RTP by clicking on the game’s info tab, which is a square filled with horizontal lines in the bottom right corner of the screen.

That type of RTP figure isn’t unremarkable for a slot like this. Other Fantasma slots with a similar RTP include Chicken Storm (96.45%), Medallion Megaways (96.20%), and The Grid (96.67%).

The Heroes Hunt Megaways slot has high variance, and also makes use of the Megaways concept. This means that winning symbols cascade off the reels to be replaced by new symbols. New wins can result from this, and the process continues until no new winning combinations appear.

It does differ slightly from other Megaways slots, though, in that ‘blocker’ symbols appear on the reels. These can be removed at random during the game. You can find a paytable by clicking on the tab filled with horizontal lines in the bottom right corner of the screen. There is an autoplay button and this can be set to run for a specific number of spins.

A Richly Immersive Adventure

When the Heroes Hunt Megaways slot opens, you are taken to a scene in a tunnel beneath a mountain. If you have played any kind of fantasy game, you’ll recognise the setting as typical. Indeed, it looks not dissimilar to Moria from The Lord of the Rings. This realm is apparently under threat from the Fiend of Dreadmaw, and our heroes must quest to remove this shadow.

Before the action in the Heroes Hunt Megaways slot begins, you are asked to select one of the 3 heroes. You can choose the Wizard, Warrior or Archer. Each of them is a different anthropomorphic animal, and each can help you in your quest for prizes in a different way. We’ll look at the specific ways they act and the benefits they bring later on.

The lower value symbols on the reels are gemstones of various colours. The higher value symbols are all associated with the heroes' quest in some way. So you will see the dragon, the wizard, the warrior, the archer, a crown and a coin. The symbols slide around in a very slick way, helping this game to exude class.

An Interesting Mixture of Magical Bonuses

One aspect of this immersive game that we particularly enjoyed was the depth and quality of the bonus features on offer. The Heroes Hunt Megaways slot certainly offers more complexity in the range of its bonus features than many other similar slots. We’ll tell you all about them here.

Avalanche Symbols

As it uses the Megaways concept, winning combinations that slide in on the reels in the Heroes Hunt Megaways slot will disappear to be replaced by new symbols. While a win is not guaranteed as part of this process, it does increase your chances of taking home more prizes.

The Heroes Hunt

Each of the 3 heroes in the Heroes Hunt Megaways slot is a different animal. They also offer different types of assistance to you. Although you can only choose one hero at the start of the game, you can unlock others as you collect experience points. You can find out the details of how they help here:

  • Wizard. The purple robed wizard is a bird. This character helps you with her magical purple explosion symbol. When this symbol appears on the reels, it destroys the symbols in a 2×2 or 3×3 area around itself. This will create new avalanches in which all the symbols will be matching.
  • Warrior. The golden warrior character is a lion. He can help by giving you an expanding wild symbol in the shape of a dagger. This can cover an entire reel and also gives you a win multiplier of up to x6.
  • Archer. The archer, dressed in green like Robin Hood, is a squirrel. He can help you by removing blocking symbols when he shoots his arrows onto the reels. This happens when his green arrow symbol appears anywhere in view. His arrows can remove between 6 and 12 blocking symbols. When he does this, the reels will cascade and new wins can appear on the reels for you.

Free Spins

There are 2 types of free spins bonus in the Heroes Hunt Megaways slot. Here are the details about both of them.

  • Mimic Free Spins
    These are triggered when a treasure chest appears on the reels
    . You are awarded 10 free spins and all the heroes are unlocked for the duration of the spins. Extra wilds are also added to the reels, helping you to win more often.
  • Dragon Free Spins
    Once you have collected sufficient experience points by wins spinning in to unlock all 3 heroes, you can unlock the Dragon Free Spins feature. If 3 keys land in view you will receive 10 free spins. Dragon symbols can appear during these spins. When they do, they can be destroyed by avalanches, respins, expanding wilds or explosions. If this occurs, you’ll receive an extra free spin. After these free spins, the heroes are reset to their original settings as they were when you started the game.

Slot Verdict: An Intriguing Quest for Gold

We enjoyed this game, so we’ll end this Heroes Hunt Megaways slot review on a high note. The game does seem a little complex when you get started, but this is ultimately part of its charm.
