A new classic pokie 108 Heroes will shortly go live at Australian online casinos powered by Microgaming. It will use content from the original 108 Heroes video pokie superimposed on a popular 3 reels slots engine. For those players not familiar with this video pokie, a brief review follows. You can play both versions of 1108 Heroes at Microgaming online casinos like Royal Vegas and All Slots.
108 Heroes is based on a popular Chinese legend that is taken from the epic Water Margin. This is considered as one of the four great classic novels from Chinese literature. The legend is about 108 demonic overlords that had been banished by the Taoist sage Shangdi for their misdeeds. After repenting, they are reborn as the 108 Stars of Destiny who unite to fight injustice, evil and corruption.
The legendary story has been given an epic background setting with ornate artwork and pulsating music. Five of the 108 heroes appear as the high paying symbols on the reels. Players that are familiar with the legend would be able to identify them from their distinct appearances. But this really does not matter. Sit back and enjoy the action packed win animations of the heroes. The low paying symbols are the usual playing card icons The 108 Heroes logo is the wild symbol. In the win animations it displays a setting from the epic tale. This symbol also awards the top line payouts. The payout for a combination of five symbols is 15,000 times the line bet. The next highest payout is only 500 times the line bet. The video slot has high variance and will require persistent wagering in order to get returns.
There are two special symbols in the video slot. The treasure chest is the bonus symbol. When three or more symbols land an active payline from left to right the King’s Treasure Bonus Game is triggered. The legend features an evil king who has amassed ill-gotten gold. As he is transferring it to his vaults, the heroes besiege the coach and distribute the wealth to the poor. This is the theme of the bonus game on the second screen. You have to pick up to five treasure chests from the 12 displayed on the second screen. Each pick awards a bonus payout. The second special symbol awards payouts multiplied by the total bet. Three or more scatter symbols also award 10 free spins with tripled payouts. The free spins can be retriggered.
