Slot Overview: Skin, Math Model Stats, Paytable, & Rules
In terms of the overall look, Gameburger attempts a classic theme, rendered in glorious technicolor, as partner Microgaming puts it. A funky disco track plays on in the background, successfully merging two bygone but relevant eras.
As for the algorithm, the developer drops in whatever was in the original here. First, players get a 96.24% RTP rating, which is well above-average. Second is the 39.75% hit rate, the main drawcard of the original, which even the Tarzan-themed rehash could not beat despite claiming to utilize an enhancement of the original’s algorithm. Third and finally is a medium volatility setting, retained in all the remakes to make them as frenetic as they can be, especially in the short-run.
Players can hop in on the action on any device, provided that it supports internet browsing. Bets ranging from 0.20 to 60 units of the primary currency are available, and getting a winner involves landing at least three identical symbols on any one of the available 20 paylines. Remember, the left-right alignment rule applies here.
Heading to the symbols, the classic slot cliches of the original make a return, accompanied by a Hyper Strike Symbol that steps in for the masks. That said, three to nine Hyper Strike symbols will award payouts ranging from one to two thousand times the bet. That is way higher than what the seven-variants, dollar signs, bells, bars, and cherries can offer. Helping cobble wins together is the substituting wild card, which pays 6.25-125x for three to five appearances.
Other than the paying Hyper Strike symbols, the only other feature in Hyper Strike is the bonus round. Land three free spins symbols to get one, 1x bet. And to, a chance to spin the free spins wheel, where the luckiest punters land a decent 30 rounds on the house with a fixed 3x multiplier that applies to regular wins. A bonus round retrigger is possible.
Hyper Strike- Our Verdict
Overlook the name and theme change in Hyper Strike, and you have yourself the good old 9 Masks of Fire. So yeah, whatever we said about the original applies to the clone. Hyper Strike is a classical gameplay-influenced slot that will appeal to fans of the theme and casual players alike.
