108 Heroes slot was created by Microgaming, and it is a slot machine with a Chinese theme. That in itself is not unusual, there are a lot of them offered by slot developers, and even Microgaming has a number of them. The game has a certain angle to its theme though, being focused on heroes of the Chinese, though it’s not clear to me whether they show real people from their history, or imaginary ones. The symbols have generals, emperors and warriors among them, but they have enough basic poker cards as well. Expect a slot machine which offers 5 reels, has up to 15 active lines, and which relies on free spins, on scatter symbols, a King’s Treasure bonus, along with wild symbols. The big payout is worth $37,500.
Betting and Prizes
You will discover that a wager placed in 108 Heroes will allow you to cover anywhere from 1 to 15 lines, rendering them active at the same time. In the case of each line, you have between 1 and 5 coins that you may use, where the size will start from $0.01 and can be taken up to $1. The maximum wager per line is $5, while per spin can go to $75 for all the lines.
A $37,500 top prize is advertised, for players that decided to use the maximum bet, and then managed to land a combo of five wild symbols on one of the 15 lines available. That’s a 7,500x multiple of a line bet.
108 Heroes Slot Features
A popular feature in most slots, the wild is included among the symbols of 108 Heroes as well. It’s represented on the reels by a logo of the game, and depending on their number on the same line, and their arrangement, you can get them to pay you directly, as much as $37,500. Otherwise, it’s going to act as a replacement when it is in the right position for it, but this will not happen where scatters are concerned.
One of the two other feature symbols that the game uses will show you the image of some rocks, with a Chinese writing next to it, and with a green border going around them. The scatter symbol pays by being in sufficient random locations, but in view. With 2 to 5 such symbols, you get paid 2x to 400x the wager. At the same time, you will trigger 10 free spins, with the possibility of retriggering them. All the wins pay triple the regular amount.
Second, we have a Treasure Chest symbol, which you will be able to use when it is present on one of the active lines, forming a combo of 3+ icons. The new screen will take you to a dozen treasure chests, where you get to pick 3 to 5. With the maximum bet in place, the most you can win from a pick is $500, so up to $2,500 can be won in this bonus game.
Theme & Design
It’s an attractive design, for the most part anyway, since the poker cards don’t do much to help it. Otherwise, you have multiple Chinese heroes, warriors and generals among them, as well as things like treasure chests or landscapes. Beautiful images of cherry blossoms are in the background.
108 Heroes should appeal to enough players, doing its best to pay well and to have nice graphics and lots of features.
