Casino Heroes Review
Casino Heroes is one of those online casinos which really stands out in its niche. They have taken the levelling and adventure theme to a whole new level. At Casino Heroes, you will embark on an adventure which spans over three islands, 70 different bosses and 50 treasures to claim.
Casino Heroes launched back in 2014, then by the name of Casino Saga. Unfortunately, back then there was a quite big (actually still is) game called Candy Crush Saga. The story is that the makers of that game, the company King in Sweden, did not like other companies using the word Saga in online mobile game. After some time, Saga became Heroes!
Why play at Casino Heroes
If you want something more than just playing slots, then Casino Heroes is the next casino for you to try out. As you start, you get to choose your hero, where you can choose from a long line of different heroes that is most similar to you. Below you can see a few examples. Choosing a hero does not do anything more than give you an avatar to level up, and some of the chosen heroes makes us here at SlotMad wonder if Casino Heroes didn’t learn from the Saga incident of 2014.
‘Alexa, who owns the trademarks for Lara, Gandalf and Yoda?’
Making a deposit goes quick and is quite easy to do. Clear way to show that you are getting / not getting a bonus on the next deposit, wide range of deposit methods available and the bonus gets added without any hassle. Exactly the way you want your first deposit to go at a new casino.
After you have made your deposit, it is time to set out on your adventure. You start on the first island, the easiest, and have to work your way through each island and the treasures which awaits. As you level up, you have the chance to fight bosses and win Free spins, Mega Spins, Bonuses and more.
One cool little feature Casino Heroes have built for their players is what they call ‘Blitz Mode’, where you can play your favorite Netent slot machine up to 6 times faster. We tried it out on two of our favourite Netent slots, Lost Relics and Gonzo’s Quest. The feature is really well done and looks great, and if you just want to get to the bonus round, this is a great way to do it. However, here at SlotMad, we love the excitement of watching the reels spin, so this feature is not something we’ll use regularly.
As you sign up to Casino Heroes, you are offered a quite modest 100% up to €50 bonus. For some markets though, like Sweden, Norway and Finland, the bonus is offered up to the equivalent of €200. However, they have quite lax terms and conditions which makes up for it, and here are the key points:
- 40xBonus wagering requirement
- 30 days to wager the bonus
- Maximum bet of €5 with bonus money
This is a great bonus for those of us who want to try a new casino with a smaller deposit and see if lady luck can strike.
Slots is where Casino Heroes has their focus, and it shows when it comes to the number of providers and games available. Like most of the Online Casinos nowadays, they have the bigger providers in Europe, such as Netent, Microgaming, Quickspin, PlaynGo and many more . During our review, we tried out a few different slots and providers, all worked smoothly and during the 2 hours of game play, we didn’t experience any issue or lag. We did however experience large swings in both account balance and mood. Diamond Mine MEGAWAYS gave and Bonanza MEGAWAYS took it back.
The help they provide in finding a game to play is limited, with only a Search bar available but no means of filtering by provider, no sort functionality or similar. They do provide lists of games such as Popular, New and ‘Heroes Like’, but this is still an area they should focus on soon.
If Jackpots are what you’re after, in terms of jackpots frequently reaching multiple or even tens of millions paid out to one lucky winner, they have:
- Mega Moolah from Microgaming – up to an astonishing €17.5 million at the time of the review. It has no doubt found its way to a lucky winner when you are reading this.
- Mega Fortune from Netent – previous World record holder for largest ever payout. Current holder is Mega Moolah.
- Hall of Gods from Netent – an older jackpot slots which has been around for many years and paid out many millions.
Even though they have a high focus on Slots, their Live Casino is well equipped by Evolution Gaming and Netent Live. When we reviewed this Casino we felt like trying our luck at the Money Wheel (also called Dream Catcher), after a few spins, we hadn’t hit anything and moved back to slots. After all, that’s what we are here for.
Try your luck at the various land-based Casinos from where they offer Live Roulette, filmed right at the table. How about having a friend in Barcelona go to the Grand Casino and wave to you as you bet on the same numbers? Hippodrome in London and Dragonara Casino in Malta are also available for you to enjoy in this way.
As you play, you’ll earn Rubies, which can be exchanged for free spins of different kinds in their Ruby store. You get to choose between Free Spins between 10 cent and €4 per spin, as well as Wagerfree Free Spins at a higher price and the same denominations.
The adventure is the big part of playing at Casino Heroes. As you spin and go further in the adventure, you will come upon Bosses where you will need to kill them through a Pick and Click game where you can also win free spins and Rubies to be used in the Ruby shop. The adventure is huge and will take a long time to complete even for the most avid slot player. Opening a treasure or killing a boss can be a nice break from spinning if you are having a bad run or just want some variation.
Casino Heroes is a one of a kind Casino, leading the way for Casinos where the focus is on creating a complete adventure outside of just the slot playing. We rate this casino a solid 4.75 of 5 stars.
