Ancient Greece has long proved to be a favourite topic for the development of online slots. We have played many games over the years with Greek themes, and some have been great and some not so great. The Hot as Hades slot caught our eye and it has been developed by heavyweight gambling Microgaming. For this game, Hades refers to the realm of the dead which is covered extensively in Greek mythology and also relates to a fearsome god who once ruled over the land. We like how the slot game has also managed to keep things light-hearted with the aim of providing an entertaining slot experience.
The Hot as Hades video slot is a couple of years old but is still right up there as an excellent choice for players that are looking for a new game to play. There are five reels as you would expect and players can benefit from the twenty paylines that are on offer, so there is a good range of winning combinations to be had. Bets range from 20p to £50, so there is great flexibility for those on varying budgets.
The design of the mobile slot game offers a Hellish background with plenty of fire and even a night sky. The characters on the reels are quite cartoonish, and all relate to the game in some way. You will find some Greek gods including Poseidon, Medusa, Cerberus, Zeus and of course Hades himself all forming the higher-value symbols. The filler symbols are all letters and numbers, so it works well overall.
The first bonus symbol to look out for is the wild symbol, it substitutes for most others on the reel and allows players to pick up some additional bigger than average wins. It also multiplies any win by 2X, so there is plenty of reason to look out for the wild.
There is also a scatter symbol in the Hot as Hades slot game which is the Crystal Helmet, and it allows players to trigger the Quest for the Crystal Helm bonus feature. This is a great mini-game, and there is a bit of a narrative to it which is fascinating. It primarily works as a prize pick game, you play as Hades and must work your way through different rounds which each consists of interacting with a different God. There are big prizes on offer here, and we had a blast playing it.
The only other bonus round in the Hot as Hades slot is the inclusion of Super Mode. We have encountered this a few times on specific slots, and it triggers during the base game where you will receive 5 free spins. Three extra wilds will then be added to the reel for these free spins which are frozen until the feature is over.
