Hyper Strike™ is a bold and flashy affair that’s bursting with classic slot action, enthralling visuals and an electric club soundtrack. Taking inspiration from old-school, land-based slot machines, Hyper Strike™ presents its graphics as super bright to conjure up that feeling of playing in a brick-and-mortar casino. The bouncy music in the background certainly adds to the atmosphere, but players who want to quieten things down a bit have the option to mute.
Yes, the game’s not exactly subtle. It’s set against a bright pink backdrop and the reels hold several classic symbols that fans of classic slots will know well. These include the $ sign, bars, bells and cherries. We also have the single, double and treble 7 symbols, of which any combination will create a winner. The treble 7 is the most valuable, able to pay out 37.5 times the player’s stake if 5 of a kind appear.
The Wild symbol is represented by a gold star and it has the power of substitution – so it can replace other standard symbols to produce possible winning combinations. The only symbols it cannot take the place of are the Free Spins and Scatter symbols. The Scatter is represented by the Hyper Strike™ game logo. Now let’s look at the features.
Hyper Strike™ offers relatively straightforward gameplay with two main features. By landing 3 or more of the Hyper Strike Scatter symbols on the reels, players can be awarded a cash prize. This ranges from 1 times their stake payout for 3 Scatters all the way up to 2000 times their stake if the player lands 9 Scatters. In most slots, Scatter payouts max out when 5 Scatters appear, but as one can see here, Hyper Strike™ allows up to 9 with a payout to match.
In Hyper Strike™ the Free Spins Wheel feature is not activated by the standard Scatter, but by the appearance of the Free Spins symbol – 3 or more of them to be precise. This symbol can only appear on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th reels. The Free Spins Wheel feature awards a single spin of the wheel to see where it lands. Prizes include a combination of Free Spins and Multipliers. If the wheel lands on 10, 12, 15 or 20 Free Spins, a Multiplier of 2x is also awarded. If it lands on 24 or 30 Free Spins, a Multiplier of 3x is awarded.
Retriggers are also possible during Free Spins if the player lands 3 Scatters on a single Free Spin – in which case it will reactivate the same round. So, if one initially triggered 10 Free Spins, an additional 10 will be awarded. In the case of 30 Free Spins, this can ultimately result in 60 Free Spins with the additional 30.
