There have been plenty of mythology themed slot games in the past - and just when you had thought you’d seen it all, along comes Hacksaw Gaming with this original offering. It turns everything you thought you knew about mythological slots upside down. Gone is the colourful imagery and in its place is a more subtle and historical design.
The word ‘Itero’ is Latin for repeat - which is the slot's concept. The graphics are top-class, and the entire experience is smooth, clean, and utterly immersive. This is something different from anything we have seen before. The only colour we see on the whole screen is the high-paying symbols, with everything else being dark and mysterious. The reels and backdrop look like pencil etchings - and it looks very ‘sketchy’ with the grid being set amongst columns and arches, which is where the action begins.
This is a unique game - but it is not a complex game in terms of its layout. The game is played on a simple grid of 5-reels and 4-rows. You can make winning combinations by matching three or more identical symbols from left to right, starting at the very first reel, on one of the 20 paylines. This game works equally as well, no matter how big or small your bankroll, with betting options between 10p and £100 per spin.
In terms of the paytable, the lower paying symbols are the standard playing cards - 10, J, Q, K and A. The higher-paying symbols are the Latin-inspired iconography. The Roman busts all come with different coloured circles - blue, green, light blue, yellow and then red. The highest is the red one, which represents the god, Jupiter. Hey pays out 10x for five on a payline.
Cerberus's symbol acts as the game’s wild and can substitute for all regular pay symbols to create wins. The scatter is a lion, and there is a special Hand of Jupiter symbol, which we will look at in the Features section.
ITERO Bonus Features
Here are the game’s main features:
The Echo Spins Feature: If you land the Hand of Jupiter symbol on a winning spin, it will reveal a number, which is how many respins you will get. However, these aren’t just any respins - the echo respins will replicate the spin on which they were originally triggered! You can receive up to 8 respins, and in this feature, you can get two different types of multiplier - additive and multiplicative - the first ones could be 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x or 10x, while the latter ones could be either 2x or 3x.
Wrath of Jupiter Feature: You must land three scatters to trigger this feature. You will be given ten free spins and an increased chance of landing the Hand of Jupiter symbols with more valuable multipliers.
Gift from the Gods Feature: You need 4 scatters to trigger this feature, and you receive ten free spins. However, in this feature, any multiplier that lands are collected above the reels. If echo spins are activated, the multiplier will be applied to all the wins and reset when the sequence ends.
What we like a lot about this slot is the mythology theme which is well designed and created. Aside from excellent aesthetics, the bonus features are unique and can be pretty rewarding - paying up to 10,000x your bet. The game's highlight is the echo spins - which can be the feature that creates those huge wins!
