Helios’ Fury Slot Review
Casumo Casino has added the latest greek mythology themed Helios’ Fury slot from Relax Gaming to their casino, the game set sail for general release on the 6th of October 2021.
The setting for this machine takes you back to ancient times, tasked with defending Rhodes from an attack of warships with the help of Helios in defending this small island. The Ancient Greek god Helius is regarded as the personification of the Sun in ancient Greek religion and myth (source).
The visual design may seem somewhat muted and understated compared to previous Relax Gaming releases such as Dead Man’s Trail. You can rest assured that this rather simplistic but ingenious slot packs a punch too.
Capped max wins of 50,000x stake, a 5/5 volatility rating and some very clever walking wild mechanics at play that turn out to create an exciting bonus feature that you might just on first impressions!
We have included the free to play demo slot version above. We recommend testing out the bonus buy feature to learn how all the features of the Helios Fury slot work.
Helios Fury Base Gameplay
The base gameplay in Helios Fury takes place on a standard 5×3 reel layout. The payline structure uses “Connected Ways“, which are essentially any connected matching symbols from left to right to award wins. In the base game, this results in 99 ways to win.
With a mix of regular and high paying suitably themed symbols such as Helmet, Shield, Sword and Horn, the main focus in the base game is the Ship Wild symbols which act as “walking wilds” when forming wins and are also the critical symbols required to trigger the bonus round.
Hot Spot Reel
The 5th reel on this slot is the key to triggering the main bonus feature. The Fury Free Spins are triggered by getting a walking wild ship all the way across to these reels and then scoring a win (5 of a kind) that uses this symbol whilst it’s on the 5th reel.
These wild symbols will continue to advance across the reels, provided new wins are formed using them, and multiple ship wilds can appear on the reels at any one time, making these wins much easier to land.
While this may sound somewhat confusing and difficult to achieve, factor in that with multiple walking wilds and the 99 connected ways, this is reasonably achievable and gives you great insight into how the bonus round will work.
If this all sounds like too much hassle, there is a bonus buy option in countries where permitted, allowing you to skip straight into the main Fury Free Spins round.
Wild Re-Spin Feature
The Wild Re-Spin feature is triggered every time the Wild symbol forms part of a win, the symbol will move one position to the right, and a re-spin of the reels occurs.
The re-spins keep occurring if new wins, including this wild symbol, are made or until the wild symbol has reached the 5th highlighted reel (Helios Crown).
If you inspect the screenshot below, the ship wild is on the 5th reel, along with a 5 of a kind win that uses it (highlighted flames around the edges of the symbols).
This combination signals the start of the Fury Free Spins round, where things get very interesting!
