Hyper Strike Slot Free Play
Hyper Strike relies on classic symbols, yes, but it also adds a more modern style to the slot’s design, and it doesn’t end up looking all that bad. It’s certainly good enough to play it, it’s not dated, so for most players it should be good enough.
On its list of symbols, the developers have used several logos (Free Spins, Wild, Hyper Strike), along with three variants for the Lucky 7 (7, 77 and 777), Dollar Sign, Bell, Bar logo and Cherries.
Launched by Microgaming to hundreds of their operators, the slot machine was crafted by Gameburger Studios, and it’s an exclusive title. Features are borrowed from other slots that Microgaming released in the past, and the Hyper Strike jackpot in particular has been implemented plenty of times before.
How To Play It
Select the bet, even if it’s as low as $0.20, and the reels will spin for you. Should the budget and strategy allow it, bets of up to $60 are also possible.
Whatever the wager that you’re using, there will be the same 20 active lines present, for a setup with 5×3 reels. It’s incredibly common for slot machines, probably the easiest layout to find, but that’s because it works well. You form winning combinations when 3 or more symbols match on the same active line, starting from the leftmost reel.
The Wild logo, placed against a gold star outline, is the symbol that you get to use in the substitute’s role. Not only that, but it can also be used for the best paying combinations that this slot has to offer. Get up to 5 in new combinations, and a prize of 125x the stake will be paid. The downside with these symbols, is that they can’t also be used as replacements for scatters.
Now, moving on to scatters, one of them is the Hyper Strike logo. Landing on the middle reels, you can get them to appear up to 9 times in those locations, if they end up taking over all positions. With enough scatters in view, 3 being the minimum and 9 the maximum, payouts would be anywhere between 1x and 2,000x the stake (top jackpot).
And then, there are the Free Spins logo scatters as well. These also show up on reels 2-4, and you use them to trigger the free spins. Going through a wheel of fortune bonus first, you find out which combination of free games and multipliers will be available to you. Going from best case scenario to worst, the options are:
- 30 spins and 3x multiplier,
- 25 spins and 3x multiplier,
- 20 spins and 2x multiplier,
- 15 spins and 2x multiplier,
- 12 spins and 2x multiplier,
- 10 spins and 2x multiplier.
Given that the volatility of Hyper Strike is considered medium, the 2,000x jackpot which can be won is adequate for the risk that’s taken by the player. RTP is calculated to be 96.24%, so the average player’s odds are as good as in any other slot.
Hyper Strike does enough to make the action interesting for its players, but if you’ve tried other Microgaming slots in the past, you might be used to everything it has to offer already. It’s not a very original release, but it can be an adequate option for a lot of people.
