Hot as Hades
Hot as Hades by Microgaming
Microgaming has a habit of making even the most sinister sounding video slots into cartoonish masterpieces. From Hellboy to Immortal Romance, they’re rarely looking to scare any player off from their reels and that fact continues right here on Hot as Hades. Indeed, the most intimidating symbol is one that appears to be a crystal helm, but the depictions of Zeus, Cerberus and others are more Saturday morning cartoon than late night mythological horror!
The wild card on the game, depicted by the Hot as Hades logo, warrants a special mention as not only does it fill in gaps in winning combinations across the numerous win lines, but also offers up a two times multiplier across all prizes that it forms part of.
The Base Game Super Mode
Randomly triggered base game bonuses are all the rage with Microgaming at the moment and Hot as Hades certainly doesn’t disappoint, especially as this bonus is one of the best of the lot. Essentially, when Super Mode triggers, you’ll receive five free spins which play out automatically. Three frozen wilds are immediately added to the boards and they’ll remain there across all five spins and there’s even a chance to land another frozen wild card following each spin – although this is by no means guaranteed.
The Pick a Win Quest
Five free spins aren’t exactly a standout, but when there’s a more important feature on offer, all is forgiven! That aforementioned “sinister” crystal helm is the scatter symbol on this game and landing three or more anywhere in view will trigger the quest to find it. Players take on the role of Hades as he searches through four different rounds based on each of the other starring characters, making picks as he goes. These picks are worth instant cash prizes but it’s also possible to find the symbol that brings the round to a premature end. If you do manage to make it all the way to the later rounds then the cash prizes are noticeably larger, meaning that you can pick up more prizes than even the free spins can hope to offer!
Hot as Hades isn’t one of Microgaming’s most outstanding slot titles but it is certainly plenty of fun. It’s well worth a closer look if you’re feeling the need for something fresh and new and you can see what the quest and free spins are all about at the top of the page by playing our no deposit version.
