Greek myths and legends have brought us some of the most iconic stories of all times and now you have the chance to play as one of the most iconic fallen heroes in history. Journey into the pits of hell and take on the roll of the eponymous antihero of the online slot in Microgaming’s new Hot as Hades.
You take on the role of the flame haired guardian of hell itself, along with your trusty three-headed pooch Cerberus as you attempt to complete the Quest for the Crystal Helm, battling your way past a number of some of Greek mythologies most famous characters.
Hot as Hades is not a typical Microgaming slot. Sure it is a 5×3 reel slot that boasts 20 fixed paylines and there’s nothing unusual about that, but it is when you look at the game itself you realise that this is one of the most innovative games in recent times.
Graphically the game is a joy, with the high symbols beautifully rendered in cartoon format and the hellish setting beautifully realised as the background. The sounds and ambient music help bring the game to life so it looks and sounds fabulous.
However the real innovation is within the gameplay. You can strike free spins at any time in the game thanks to the superb Super Mode Free Spins option, which is randomly triggered and when activated awards you five free spins.
That’s not all though as at any point in these free spins Hades can appear on screen and turn up to three reels wild to massively increase your chances of a bigger cash win.
Land 3 or more scatters across the reels and you enter the Quest for the Crystal Helm bonus game, which consists of 5 levels. These are picking games where you pick prizes or pop (close the feature). Players progress through each of the five levels on successively landing three or more scatters.
With a jackpot of 100,000 coins up for grabs, this is a slot well worth taking a closer look at when it is released in July.
