About the Game
Zeus, Poseidon and Medusa, all totems within the infamous Greek mythology but none as Hot as Hades. This Microgaming powered video slot will take you on a boundless adventure filled with the power of the Gods. Changing the perspective and following the path of an unlikely hero, Hot as Hades is a tongue in cheek adaptation of stories told again and again through time.

With a range of £0.20 to £50.00 per spin, this 5-reel, 20 payline slot machine is completely customisable for all play levels. The stunning graphics depict Hade’s hellish lair, complete with boiling lava, fireball and the God of the underworld himself, Hades.

Prizes vary dependent on the level of the symbol and the amount matched on a singular payline, all traditional card symbols can result in a potential 500 coins for a completed payline. Winnings can be double that for a winning payline consisting of Hades and his cohorts – with the same 1000-coin potential for finding the three headed Cerberus. Winning lines holding matching Medusa symbols can award 1,250 coins, Poseidon 1,500, Zeus 2,000 and the top payable prize is reserved for Hades himself at 2,500 coins.

This game also contains several bonuses, from Wilds to Scatters, A Super Mode Feature and even a Quest Bonus players will have a mass amount of opportunities to win big. The Wild is depicted as Hades himself, this will provide a representation of any other none-bonus symbols to providing the player with a winning payline. The Scatter is shown as the Helmet symbol – matching enough of these could land the player with 500x their initial bet with the additional bonus of triggering the Quest Bonus when 3,4 or 5 are matched anywhere on the reel at one time.  The quest in question is a one of escape, players must find and obtain the Crystal Helm guarded by Hades and his godly cohorts. Climbing the 5 layers of the slot machine by playing them 1 at a time with a single pick granted for each level.

Level 1 – The Pillars of Awesomeness – Pick a pot to win its contents. 4 contain cash prizes whereas one will contain a Win All.

Level 2 – Medusa’s Gaze – Choose a path, 3 contain cash prizes with 1 Win All option as well as 1 End. If the End is selected the bonus round will be over automatically.

Level 3 – Poseidon’s Ocean – Pick a shell for the chance to win cash prizes while avoiding the 2 End options.

Level 4 – Zeus’ Stairway – Select a cloud, there is a 50/50 chance between cash prizes and End option.

Level 5 – The Chamber of the Crystal Skull – Choose from the 2 chests, 1 holds a generous prize whereas the other will take you back to the base game.

The final bonus comes in the form of the Super Mode Free Spin, this feature has a chance to be randomly triggered. During this, players will be granted 5 free spins with all Wilds being held in place allowing for multiple chances to activate other bonuses whilst adding to their ever-growing prize fund.

The Verdict
Greek mythology known no bounds, using a mixture of Gods and villains in this stunning instalment from Microgaming players will feel a new connection to these historical icons. The multilayer segment of this game is also reminiscent of the feats of Hercules from the same set of mythological stories. As a lover of mythology, I enjoyed the sentiment but as an avid gamer I felt excited by the potential of progression, elements such as progression really help set games apart from the crowd.
