The 108 Heroes slot is based on a Chinese story surrounding the Liang Mountain where 108 heroes formed a group to battle for the cause of justice. The 72 Earthly Fiends and 36 Heavenly Spirits were accidentally released from imprisonment after atoning for their sins and are reborn as the famous 108 heroes. All in all, a perfect theme for a new slot from Microgaming.
It is fair to say that the 108 Heroes is another Oriental-themed slot, but these are certainly very popular in Microgaming casinos and this is a slot that will certainly appeal to anybody that has enjoyed these type of games in the past. On the reels are the characters Wu Yong, Ling Chong, Lu Zhi Shen, Sun Erniang and Li Kui. Lower value symbols are the Ace, King and Queen.
The game itself is fast paced with an action-packed sounding musical backdrop. The graphics are neatly done and in keeping with the style of the slot and you can win a jackpot of up to 8,000 coins, which is certainly a decent amount for a slot that is only available to play at the moment on desktop or laptop.
What makes 108 Heroes stand out though are the two bonus features and of the two it is the Free Spins bonus which offers the higher potential rewards with up to 1,600 times your stake available to be won. However, you can still win some decent amounts in the Kings Treasure bonus round too, especially if you can trigger it with four or five picks. This is a simple, but fun slot to play which captures the essence of an Oriental-themed slot very nicely.
