Games Related to Hot as Hades
The Devil eh? Generally, most people assume that he and his minions are generally not the nicest of deities and legends.
Well, if you load up the new Hot as Hades slot, then you'll find that this somewhat unusual cast of characters aren't quite so fearful as you would first imagine!
Hades is of course the name of the Greek God of the underworld and his name has also became synonymous with the name for the place where the dead roam. He's also frequently depicted with his loyal pet, a three-headed dog by the name of Cerberus and is known as the brother of the King of Gods, Zeus and the God of the Sea, Poseidon.
This does make this slot seem rather grand and perhaps a tad pompous, but Microgaming's design team have brilliantly done away with the lofty ideals and instead, in much the same way the Disney film Hercules brought that Greek legend to life, created a series of cartoon-style characters across the reels (and sometimes beside them)
The basics of the slot are that it is a typical 5x3 reel slot, with the usual playing card low symbols across the reels and a number of Hades counterparts acting as the high symbol across the reels. There's Hades himself, his three-headed dog, Medusa, as well as his brothers Zeus and Poseidon. The slot has 20 fixed paylines in play on every spin and you can size the size of your bet on each spin from just 0.20 up to a huge 50.00.
More experienced players will also use the Autoplay feature, which allows them to put up to 100 spins into the machine, while they busy themselves elsewhere.
The base game is relatively simple with the usual higher wins awarded by landing the high symbols across the payline, or the in game wild (the Hot as Hades logo) or the scatter which is a strange looking skull-shaped crystal, called the Crystal Helm.
When landed across the reels, the Hot as Hades wild symbol replaces all other symbols on the reels across the scatter to help land a winning payline. The good news is that every time you land a winning payline using a Wild symbol, any winnings you receive from that line are subject to a 2x multiplier, doubling your win in an instant.
One of the most appealing features of the base game is that from time to time, Hades and his pet Cerberus will occasionally appear around the fringes of the reels and perform a little animated task. This does add a lovely twist of humour throughout the game, especially when Cerberus does something that dogs tend to do on three legs at the side of the screen.
You can win up to 1000 times your stake in the base game, but that isn't the only thing that can happen. If you are lucky enough, you can trigger the randomly activated Super Mode at any point in the base game, which awards the user five free spins.
What is exciting about the Super Mode is that up to three of the positions on the reel in the game will turn completely wild for the duration of the free spins round and you can land another wild in a different position on a free spin. This superb new bonus feature allows you the chance to rack up some potentially massive wins even though you have just five free spins to play with.
The other big in game feature is the Quest Bonus, which is triggered when you land three or more the in game scatter symbols, the Crystal Helm, across the reels.
The Bonus game is called the "Quest for the Crystal Helm" and you join Hades on his quest to liberate this ancient artifact from the clutches of his two brothers. This is a staged quest, which sees the player progress through five different levels on the slot in order to complete each stage of the quest and eventually take on Zeus in order to reclaim the Crystal Helm.
One of the key features in these bonus rounds is Hades faithful dog Cerberus, as finding his symbol in any of the games will mean that you are awarded all the potential cash rewards from that level, rather than just one. Manage to pass through all five levels and the Crystal Helm is yours, along with a pretty hefty payout.
Hot as Hades is an innovative and imaginative slot that puts a comedic slant on one of the Greek mythologies most enduring stories. Instead of being a dark, soulless slot, what you have is a hugely enjoyable cartoon-style romp and a slot that has more than enough features, not to mention a hefty jackpot, that is sure to appeal to all slots enthusiasts.
