We are all about to take a journey into the 14th century far east of the Orient, in this slot from Microgaming. Boku Slots always find an enjoyment from oriental themed slots and 108 Heroes gives us just that.
108 Heroes is a 5-reel, 15 fixed pay line slot that offers an RTP of 97%, that should blow the leaves of the cherry blossoms. Set against a backdrop of lucky red and framed in an oriental gilt of gold, the reels look promising. Pipe and drum music filters through the background lending an almost realistic sound to the game itself.
Bet Amounts – Betting begins at 15p per spin at the lowest levels and can be increased to a maximum of £75 per spin. By adjusting the coin level and coin value, you can easily switch between the minimum and maximum according to your needs at the time of play.
Wild Symbol – The 108 Heroes logo is your wild symbol and it will substitute for all other symbols except the scatter and bonus. It is also your highest paying symbol within the game and offers a win of 75 coins for landing 5 wilds on a winning line.
Scatter Symbol – A symbol showing Chinese script is your scatter and by landing 3 or more of these anywhere in view, you will trigger the bonus spins. Scatter wins can also be awarded if you land 2 or more anywhere on the reels, these are paid as well as your line win. 5 scatters will award a win of 60 coins on top of your line win for instance.
Bonus Spins Feature – 3 or more scatter symbols will trigger the bonus spins for you. You will be allocated 10 spins to play through, during the round all wins are tripled. Not only that but you can retrigger the bonus spins again and again by landing more scatter symbols in view, and the chest bonus can be triggered here as well.
Chest Bonus Feature – 108 Heroes has an additional game that can be triggered by landing 3 or more chest symbols. On doing this you will be taken to a new screen and shown 12 chests, you will have the choice of picking 3, 4 or 5 of these chests. A variety of coin wins will be inside each chest, once you have picked your allotted amount your prizes are accumulated and added to your balance. You can trigger the bonus spins from within this feature, by landing three or more scatter symbols on the reels.
With a distinctive theme we expected a little more feature wise with regards to 108 Heroes. Initially we were enjoying the game, but, the features didn’t trigger very often so it got very monotonous as we waited for those special symbols to land. Wins did come fairly often on the base game and once the features triggered the big money landed. But the wait between that happening seemed to last a lifetime. If you are looking for a quick game with fast returns, then this isn’t for you. If, however you have plenty of time on your hands then 108 Heroes should pay off eventually.
