Heroic – Eye of the Dragon is a slot set in some sort of mythical world. I’m not sure whether its trying to be a take on dungeons and dragons or lord of the rings, but you get the idea. As you spin the reels different characters appear and if they complete a winning line they come alive with a simple animation. In the background you have rolling hills and mountains with waterfalls. It all looks very nice, and as with most nektan slots it plays great on a mobile. I did try it on both a mobile and desktop and definitely preferred the mobile version. Again, like other slots developed by nektan heroic is pretty much a no frills affair. There are no video bonus rounds or extra games to play. There is a wild symbol and free spins and they’re the only bonuses you’re going to get. But for some reason despite the lack of ‘fun features’ I actually enjoyed playing this one. Yes its more of a time killer than anything else, and after a short period you’re likely to end up bored, but I liked it. Triggering the free spins creates a dramatic change to the background as the flowing water is changed to flowing hot lava. But this is all just gimmicks and adds absolutely zero to the game play. This is a 5 reel 3 line slot so it is as basic as they come these days.
Heroic is a 20 line slot and has a minimum stake of 0.01p per line. So for those on a budget you can play 20 lines for just 0.20p. If you happen to be someone who likes to spend a little more in the hope of winning a bit more then the maximum stake is £20.00. But in truth I can’t see this being one for the high rollers as there just aren’t enough features to keep you occupied for long enough.
Its handy having a wild symbol to help complete winning lines. But this will not substitute the free reels symbol so don’t get too excited. Regarding the free spins, depending how many symbols you have appear will depend on how many free spins you are awarded with. You can get 3, 4 or 5 different symbols and you’ll be awarded 10, 20 or 40 free spins respectively. I’m told that you can win more free spins while in the free spin mode but can’t really comment as that never actually happened with me.
To summarise this heroic slot review. Nektan has tried to push the boundaries a bit here. There are animations when you get a winning symbol, changes in background and other small little things that happen while spinning the reels. In terms of mobile slots, I guess it’s quite advanced. But if you want the truth, I doubt this one you’ll spend hours and hours playing. Compared to some of the other slots games available out there this is unlikely to be more than just a time filler.
