Hot as Hades Slot Review
The story of Hades in Greek mythology is a pretty interesting one that’s pretty funny at times, like when he picks up Persephone and makes her his wife just because he feels like it.
Microgaming has made a fun slot that centres around this brother of Zeus, king of the Greek gods, in Hot as Hades.
There are smooth 3D graphics in this game, and most players notice right away that this title does not take itself as seriously as most slots that are built around themes from Greek mythology, which adds to the fun.
In terms of slot formats, Microgaming decided to go with a five-reel, three-row layout that uses 20 pay lines.
While this may be the most common video slot layout in the history of the industry, the rest of the game is anything but typical.
You can play with stakes as low as £0.20 per spin with coins set to £0.01 apiece, so it’s good to know that this game also appeals to players at all levels of stakes.
The maximum bet amount is £50 per spin!
The top symbols in this game are five symbols from Greek mythology that people will recognise the most.
The top symbol is Hades, who looks like a child character from the television show The Simpsons with flaming hair doing a disco dance.
Next, is Zeus, king of the gods, looking down like an amused grandfather figure. Then you have Poseidon, the other brother of Hades, who is the king of the sea.
Following that, you have Medusa in the green with her hair made out of snakes, and finally, there is Cerberus, the three-headed dog that guards the gates of the Underworld against intruders.
Five minor symbols also appear on the reels with the A, K, Q, J, and ten symbols. All of these symbols listed require at least three of a kind to make a winning combination.
Wilds, Scatters and Features
The Hot as Hades symbol is quite essential because it’s a wild symbol that shows up on all five reels.
On top of that, it multiplies winning combinations by a factor of 2 as a wild multiplier. Additionally, the flaming purple skull with horns is a scatter that pays for two or more anywhere on the reels. Pick up three or more for a bonus feature.
On top of that, you can enter a Super Mode at random for five free spins.
During Super Mode, you get three sticky wilds added to the reels, and any wilds you pick up will be held sticky for the rest of Super Mode to give you an overwhelming amount of value.
Our verdict of Hot as Hades
Microgaming’s Hot as Hades slot has amazing graphics with the symbols based on Greek mythology.
The quest for the Helm bonus feature can pocket you with up to 2.000 times your stake.
Overall this is one of the better Microgaming slots to play.
