About The Nemean Lion

The Nemean Lion is the very first slot game from Blue Guru Games, and it aims to tell a story with the slot, delving into the depths of Greek mythology. This isn’t an uncommon theme, but they have gone deeper than most - and added some very decent mechanics to match.

The Nemean Lion was Hercules’ very first task from his legendary 12 Labours. A lion was terrorising the village of Nemea and no ordinary weapons seemed to help. Hercules trapped the lion in a cave and suffocated it. He then wore the lion’s skin afterwards as a reward. The story may seem grim, but the game certainly isn’t. The slot looks stunning, set in the Ancient Greek countryside amongst a Peloponnesian valley of trees. You start spinning those reels along to an atmospheric soundtrack, with the aim of slaying the lion - and slaying those wins.

The Nemean Lion Gameplay

The game is played on a 5-row, 5-reel grid offering 40 paylines and you can play anywhere between 20p up to £100 per spin on this slot. As per standard slot games, in order to make a win, you will need to land 3 or more matching symbols from left to right on an active payline, starting on the leftmost reel.

In terms of the paytable, the stone-looking symbols are the lower-paying ones and these payout between 2.5-times and 3.75-times your stake for a 5-of-a-kind win. The medium payers are the amulet and club which pay out 5x your stake for 5 on a payline. The higher paying symbols are the prophets, beautiful maidens and the Nemean Lions - which pay between 6.25x your stake - all the way up to 50x your stake for 5 lions on a payline.

There is a wild, which is represented by the swiping paw symbol which can land on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5, which substitutes for all symbols apart from the scatter.

The Nemean Lion Bonus Features

As Hercules had his tasks - so do you! This is very much about trying to land those scatter symbols.

Scatter Multiplier Meter: If you land 1 or 2 scatter symbols on the centre three reels whilst in the base game then they will be collected in a meter that is found at the top of the corresponding reel. Every meter starts at x2 and for every 50 scatters you manage to collect, the multiplier will increase by one. However, any scatter that triggers the bonus round will not be collected in the meter.

Roar to Victory Free Spins: If you land 3 scatters on the three central reels then you will be awarded 12 free spins. The position in which those scatters land will then become multiplier positions and they will take the value from the multiplier meter that is above them on the reel. In the free spins round, when a scatter symbol lands, its position will also become a multiplier position. However, if a scatter lands in a position that is already a multiplier position then that multiplier will increase by 1. If there is more than one multiplier in play for a win then the values are multiplied together and then applied to the win. When the round ends, the multiplier meters all reset back to 2x.

The Nemean Lion Review

Overall, this is a great looking release from the Blue Guru Games studios - and the way it delves a little deeper into Greek mythology makes it very intriguing. The free spins and scatters are put to the very best use and if you manage to hit enough multipliers and the right winning symbols, a win of up to 28,266x is possible. We predict that this will be a roaring success!
