Take on The Nemean Lion in Blue Guru’s debut release

Players join Hercules as he embarks on the first of a series of tasks that could see him become immortal in the studio’s first game launch of the same name

Blue Guru Games, the developer of story-driven casino games, is giving players the chance to join the legendary Hercules in his quest for atonement and immortality in its debut game release, The Nemean Lion.

The game is based on the tale of Hercules, who is driven to insanity by the jealous Goddess Hera and seeks advice from the Oracle at Delphi. His atonement and shot at immortality mean completing a series of epic tasks that became known as the Labours of Hercules.

The first task was to take on the Nemean Lion, a beast with impregnable golden fur. Players join Hercules in his quest and are helped along the way with a series of bonus features. Players collect Scatters to increase the Free Games Multiplier as they battle towards the showdown.

Land three Scatters and Hercules travels into the depts of the canyon, carrying with him the already collected Multipliers. On arrival, he receives 12 Free Spins and three Multiplier positions based on where the triggering Scatters landed.

During the Free Games, any extra Scatters that land will either add to the Multiplier value on that spot or create a new Multiplier position starting with the Multiplier above the reel. If a Multiplier is already in place, the count will increase by one.

If a winning combination passes through a Multiplier position, the win includes the sum of the Multipliers that it touches.

Kristian Hassall, Commercial Manager at Blue Guru Games, said: “Players will be able to help Hercules complete his first labour by defeating the feared Nemean Lion.

“Along the way, they must collect Scatters to not only guide Hercules towards his epic showdown with the magnificent beast but to also give him the very best chance to overpower the Nemean Lion through Free Spins and Multipliers.

“The game has been designed to take players to the heart of the Hercules story with each spin, and thanks to the fun gameplay combined with striking graphics and authentic soundtrack, we believe it does just that.”

In a groundbreaking move, the Directorate of Sports and Youth Services of the Government of Maharashtra has rewarded a significant amount of INR 10 lakhs to each Esports athlete of the state who represented India in the Asian Games 2022, held in Hangzhou. This marks a historic moment for Indian Esports, as it is the first time any state has included Esports alongside mainstream sports in prize money rewards for its state players in a major tournament. The recipients of this monetary reward include Darshan Bata, captain of the DOTA 2 team, along with his teammates Krish Gupta, Ketan Goyal, and Shubham Goli, as well as League of Legends athlete Samarth Trivedi.

Expressing his gratitude, Darshan Bata, the captain of the DOTA 2 team who hails from Mumbai, said, “I would like to express my sincere thanks to ESFI and the Maharashtra government for honoring us and recognizing and supporting Esports.”

Esports made its debut as a full-fledged medal event at the Asian Games 2022, where a total of 476 athletes from 30 different countries competed for gold medals across seven titles. India participated in four of these titles, including DOTA 2, EA Sports FC Online, League of Legends, and Street Fighter V: Champion Edition.

“It has been a great experience at Asian games, I am grateful for the support I received from the Maharashtra government and I really appreciate the efforts ESFI has contributed to our journey,” stated Ketan Goyal of Pune who was a part of the DOTA 2 team at the Asian Games 2022.

The talented Indian contingent for the Asian Games was sent by Esports Federation of India (ESFI), who had organized open for all nationwide online qualifiers to select the best and most deserving athletes to compete for the nation at the tournament.

“Really happy to see that Esports is getting recognized and we are being aided by the government. Thank you for the support to Maharashtra Government and a big shoutout to ESFI for giving us this opportunity to represent India in the Asian games,” highlighted Krish Gupta of Pune, a member of the Indian DOTA 2 team.

The League of Legends team, in particular, achieved a historic fifth-place finish at the 19th Asian Games after competing against top-tier teams from around the continent.

“I am really grateful to the Maharashtra government for providing us with the financial support. It is amazing to see Esports being recognized by the Government. A huge shoutout to ESFI for giving us the opportunity and platform to compete at the Asian Games 2022 in Hangzhou,” commented Samarth Trivedi of Thane who played a pivotal part in the country’s performance in League of Legends at the tournament.

Prior to the 19th Asian Games, India had also secured a remarkable bronze medal at the Commonwealth Esports Championships in DOTA 2, showcasing the country’s prowess in video gaming on the international stage.

“Thank you ESFI and team for all you support throughout Asian games 2022. We are really blessed and honored by Maharashtra Government for supporting Esports players and considering Esports in events like Commonwealth and Asian Games,” noted Shubham Goli, a resident of Pune who represented India at both the Commonwealth Esports Championships as well as the Asian Games 2022 in DOTA 2. The latest FICCI-EY report titled ‘#Reinvent: India’s media & entertainment sector is innovating for the future, India is expected to have 20 international teams by 2024.

The Maharashtra government’s recognition and support of Esports signals a significant milestone in the journey towards mainstream acceptance of competitive gaming as a legitimate sport in the country.
