Hot As Hades is an addition to the ranks of Greek god-themed online slots and this time it’s Microgaming who are providing the goods. Hades in this case refers to the realm of the dead in Greek mythology but originally it was the name of the particular god who ruled over this domain. There are two bonus games features here so read on for more information.
Hot As Hades is a five reel slot with three rows and twenty fixed paylines; it’s a cartoonish design which makes light of the situation in which we find ourselves. It’s a fiery cave in which Hades and Cerberus occasionally wander with big grins on their faces.
The five high value symbols are Hades himself, Zeus, Poseidon, Medusa and Cerberus; the lower values are the usual 10, J, Q, K and A.
The ‘Hot As Hades’ logo is wild and will multiply by 2x any wins to which it contributes. The crystal helm is the scatter symbol which activates the main feature.
This is a randomly triggered bonus awarded during the base game in which you will receive five free spins. Three extra wilds are added to the reels for these spins which are frozen in place until they end; additionally one extra wild may be added per spin if you’re lucky.
Quest For The Crystal Helm
There’s a bit of a narrative to this mini-game which is triggered by landing three or more of the crystal helm scatter symbols anywhere in view. It’s essentially a picking game in which you (as Hades) must work your way through four rounds characterised by Cerberus, Medusa, Poseidon and Zeus.
Each successful pick awards cash prizes but if you find the ‘Block’ object the round is over; make it through to the final round beyond Zeus and that’s where the big prizes are you. As you can see from our video above if you find the crystal helm you will win all available prizes.
Hot As Hades has plenty to offer, from the high quality graphics to the two separate but lucrative bonus features. We found it easy to trigger the Quest bonus but a bit harder to activate the free spins but perhaps that’s just bad luck.
