Hyper Strike is one of the latest slots game releases from software developer MicroGaming, in collaboration with Gameburger studios, and adds a real energy to a classic theme. This thoroughly entertaining new addition to our selection of online slots games comes with a number of excellent features, including a wild feature and a free spins feature which offers up to 60 free spins. So, without further ado, let’s take a closer look.
Microgaming is known as one of the most influential developers in the gaming industry, and its collaborations with smaller studios have often proved very successful. Hyper Strike slots game is the latest of these collaborations, with Microgaming partnering with Gameburger Studios in a game that pays homage to the traditional slots machines, with some excellent graphics and a great soundtrack to accompany it.
That being said, whilst the game may have the look and feel of a retro slots machine, its availability is much more modern, with this game available to play on a whole range of devices.
In terms of the set up of this game, this is where the retro aspects comes in, with 5 reels, 3 rows and 20 paylines. What that means is any combination of 3 or more symbols will result in a win. And in terms of the pay range, this is ample enough to keep most players happy, with a minimum bet of just £0.20 and a maximum bet of £60.
Lastly, the RTP for Hyper Strike is a very respectable 96.24%, and whilst the name may suggest otherwise, this is a medium range volatility game, so you shouldn’t be waiting too long for those winnings to arrive.
In terms of the symbols on show in this game, these are again relatively “retro”, with symbols including cherries, BARs, bells and dollar symbols. What’s more these are accompanied by a single 7, a double 7 and a triple 7, with the last of these paying up to 37.5x for a combination of five of these in a single spin.
There are also, as expected, a few additional symbols to keep an eye out for, one of which is the gold star wild symbol. This symbol replaces all other symbols and pays 6.25, 25 or 125x your stake for a combination of 3, 4 or 5 of these across a payline.
The other symbol to keep an eye out for is the scatter symbol, which comes in the form of the Hyper Strike Logo. As we will discuss below, a combination of three or more of these gives way to one of the game’s bonus features.
Hyper Strike has two main bonus features on offer, the scatter feature and the free spins feature.
First of all, the scatters feature. As we mentioned, a combination of three or more scatter symbols will result in you gaining access to the scatter feature, and whilst it’s not particularly complicated, there are some excellent winnings on offer, particularly if you get a winning combination of 9 scatter symbols:
As to the second feature, this is the free spins feature. And whilst this may not be a particularly innovative feature in itself, it’s been given a bit of a twist in Hyper Strike, with a combination of Free Spin scatter symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4 on the same spin granting you access to it, as well as the possibility of retriggering the feature which offers up the possibility of obtaining 60 free spins with a 3x multiplier.
So when you do manage that combination, you will be taken to the free spins bonus wheel, which offers a variety of free spins and multipliers, depending on where the wheel stops:
With its retro theme and accompanying soundtrack, this latest collaboration between Microgaming and Gameburger is certain to keep most players entertained, even if it isn’t the most innovative title we’ve ever seen. What’s more, with a wide betting range, a respectable RTP and some impressive bonus features, one of which offers up a mouthwatering multiplier of 2,000x your stake, it’s likely to gain popularity with a wide audience of players.
