Hercules Magnus Scratch Cards

Hercules Magnus is an epic name for an epic game. Or at least by the standards of scratch cards it’s an epic game. There’s a limit to how spectacular a scratch card can be – Hercules Magnus isn’t so epic as to cause an entire generation of video gamers to sell their PS4s and XBoxes and take up scratch cards. Still, compared to many of the other scratch cards you’ll find at casinos which look like they were cobbled together in five minutes, Hercules Magnus is an impressive title.

It’s the background that really captures your attention, a majestic vista that desktop players stand to appreciate the most. It’s worth noting of course that mobile players account for the bulk of the scratch card-playing market, and Hercules Magnus is indeed a mobile-compatible game. It seems to struggle to load in the Chrome browser, though the game should work on Android and iPhone devices in theory.

A Strong Start

In Greek mythology, Hercules was the son of Zeus and was famed for his incredible strength. There’s certainly a Greek theme to this game, whose backdrop depicts the Acropolis stood atop a hill, the rocky outcrops leading to its summit shrouded in mist. Lightning bolts flash down from the sky at regular intervals, sending rays of blue light across the screen. The swirling mist and flashing lightning serve to conjure an eery atmosphere that’s quite a sight to behold.

Mesmerising as the backdrop is, it’s what happens on that small square in the centre that matters. Framed in gold, it forms a 3x3 grid which is the norm for scratch cards. At the outset, the 9 symbols are concealed behind a large gold coin, which you will then scrape away at to reveal what lies beneath. You have the option of scratching away at the card manually or of clicking on a ‘Scratch all’ button that will do it for you. Whichever way you choose has no bearing on the outcome of the game. Some gamblers may deem the manual method to be more exciting, while others will conclude that the automated version is quicker and easier.

Mountain Riches

The default bet in Hercules Magnus by Bally Wulff stands at 0.5. With that set, it’s possible to win a jackpot of up to 50,000 coins. Aside from the speed with which they can be played, that’s the other beautiful thing about scratch cards: they’re usually packing a hefty top prize. That juicy big number is arrived at because when you win in this game, it’s possible to multiply it up to as many as 10 times. The game has an RTP of 85% which is pretty much average for a scratch card and, statisticians will be interested to learn, offers 10,000,000 possible different combinations on the board. Hercules Magnus has 9 different symbols, so it’s theoretically to have every single symbol displayed on the board at once. The lowest value symbol is the single gold coin, worth between 0.25 and 2.5 depending on how high of a multiplier you’ve set. This can range between 1 and 10.

If you were to play Hercules Magnuson on the lowest possible setting, there would be 750,000 single gold coins that statistically have a chance of appearing on the board, versus just 5 of the Hercules jackpot symbols. This gives you an indication of the sort of odds you’ll need to overcome if you’re to profit massively from this game. The next symbol up in the pecking order is two gold coins, which pay 0.5 with a 1x multiplier, and there are 300,000 of these. Next it’s three coins, then four (just 50,000 of these) and then on to the themed symbols. It’s hard to make out what the graphics shown on some of the game’s themed symbols are meant to depict; all that can be said for certain is that they are fantasy-based and that their scarcity increases with their price.

Hercules Magnus Conclusion

Hercules Magnus is an online casino game that’s been deftly designed, as you’d expect of Bally Wulff, who are an accomplished developer whose games span most categories. Within the realm of scratch cards, their titles are right up there with the likes of Pariplay in terms of graphics, audio and animations. It’s easy to get the hang of Hercules Magnus, not only the way the game works – that much is obvious – but also the way the paytable accounts for the numeracy and value of the various symbols. Play for free if you simply enjoy scratching and matching symbols or play for real money if you fancy having a crack at that 50,000 jackpot.
