Since its initial launch on June 10, 2020—released for the mass market on August 12, 2020—the cyber punk-inspired html5 video slot named Reel Hero has endeared itself to slot players with its hyped dystopian futurism concept, heroic space force, cyborgs, laser grid, drag racing, cosmic setting, artificial intelligence, and space-faring adventures.
Reel Hero’s sequel is called Infinity Hero (July 2020). Wazdan’s other space-themed games: Burning Stars (September 2014), Magic Stars series, Space Spins (June 2019), and Space Gem (February 2019). Suchlike rival games include: Infinity Synth (November 2018) from bet365, Space Guardians (January 2018) from Fazi, and Outer Space Adventure (February 2010) from Amaya.
Ten symbols (“scatter” photo collage, “wild” sun, diamond, 7, bell, star, A, K, Q, and J) require three, four, or five winning combinations.
Reel Hero Game Characteristics
Set on a dark photovoltaic panel with a glowing purple-and-turquoise frame; Reel Hero has unpartitioned 5X3 grid, 20 fixed left-to-right paylines, sixteen symbols, nine total bets, four bonus games, free games, extra free games, free re-spins, expanding reels, collectible cyborgs, random bonuses, a gamble game, and regularly pays from $0.02 to $500000.00.
There are seven special symbols. The diagonal orange-framed photo collage of monochromatic “scatter” heroes unlocks free games. The substitute is a synthwave orange “wild” sun. The Rich bonus-unlocking hero is a glinting and youthful Rich the cyborg in a dark purple costume. The Victoria bonus-unlocking heroine is a glinting and bespectacled Victoria the cyborg in dark purple. The Altiera bonus-unlocking heroine is a plasma gun-wielding Altiera the cyborg in dark purple. The Jax bonus-unlocking hero is a one-handed, glinting and space gun-wielding Jax the cyborg in a dark purple armor. The extra free games-related feature is a purple-and-turquoise “+3FS” octagon.
Eight ordinary symbols: a shiny colorful diamond; a retro 7; a sparkling multicolored bell; a gleaming golden star; and retrowave letters A, K, Q, and J.

Collecting five cyborgs unlock their respective bonus games. Rich bonus has expanding locked wilds and a re-spin. Victoria bonus: winning symbols (except those involving a scatter) nudge symbols rightward to create space for a new replacement. Altiera bonus: winless rounds prompt wilds to randomly overlay, thereby creating new winning formations. Jax bonus: cyborg Jax’s space gun wipes winning formations to pave way for cascading symbols.
Three “scatter” photo collages offer ten free games during which a “+3FS” symbol can show up, thus offering three extra free games. Default side game: players choose between a blue and a red sports car that will compete against the other in a drag race; the payout is doubled if the chosen car finishes ahead of the other, while the payout is nullified if the overlooked car finishes first. There is another suit color-guessing side card game. Reel Hero’s non-progressive jackpot is X1050, which (1050X100) equals $105000.00.
